I am a retired university professor and my wife is a retired

elementary school teacher.

Neil Brown purchased this house in 2006

We wanted an Amish-built log home with an outstanding view.

Built this log home on the edge of a cliff overlooking

the Lehigh River Gorge - the best view of any home in the

Poconos.

The log home is ideally located near all of the activities in the Poconos - yet, secluded. You have the best of both worlds - lots of things to do yet away from the mad rush!

I had the distinct pleasure of working with this homes owner in order to carry out a 15 person Bachelor party. This log home was everything that we could have asked for and more. Great set up, great views, easy to find, clean, and a very accessible owner. Not only would I recommend it to ALL but we already decided to have an annual retreat to this particular location. Awesome times Neil and thanks again!!

Beautiful, warm, sunny cabin. So happy that we stayed there. It was just as described and more! We went in a group of 8 people plus two doggies, we all had such a good time. The balcony view was just breathtaking – perfect for Meditation. There is nothing we didn’t like about the place! Would come back in a heartbeat!

I rented this house with ten of my friends for a fun snowboarding weekend for my 28th birthday. The house is beautiful and serenly located in the Pocono mountains. We all had a great time having "family meals" at the long kitchen table and enjoyed playing pool in the basement. Everyone slept comfortably and the house is conveniently located near Jack Frost, Big Boulder and Camelback ski resorts. The morning sunrise is beautiful off of the back deck and cozy for a hot tub sunset. We defintely plan on renting this house agian in the future.

The owner is nice, flexible and responds quickly to any requests. I definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to have fun and feel at home.

Great location and house for a long weekend with friends.

I rented this house for Memorial Day Weekend with a group of grad school friends and their children. This house easily accommodated the 7 adults in the group with rooms for the children on the lower level. The house itself is in excellent condition and nearly everything you might need is at hand - cooking wares, dishes, washer/dryer, dishwasher, grill etc. There's a great view over the gorge to small mountains in the distance from the deck and great room.

Overall, the group was very happy with our rental. If only one thing could be corrected, it would be the steepness of the hill on route 940 nearby which made our morning runs more challenging then expected for a vacation trip ; )

Owner's Response: Chris,

Family weekend get away

Just got back from a long weekend with our 2 children, their spouses and are 2 new (3months old) grandchildren. What a wonderful place to just kick back and visit. I think my daughter and daughter-in-law were in the cabin 5 minutes when they jumped into the hot tub! It was a chilly, rainy weekend but the sunrise over the gorge was still awesome and the hot tub is fun in the sun or the rain. A perfect way to relax at the end of the day. The cabin is great, it has everything and we felt right at home. Thank you for a wonderful time for us to be together as a family.

Owner's Response: I am very happy that the family had a nice time at the log home.
The view from the deck and hot tub is outstanding - in fact when I stay there I like to
sleep in the great room because of the beautiful view - rain, snow or shine.
The family were wonderful guests - hope they return in the future.
