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!

SPACIOUS AND RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
Went for a bachelor party paintball weekend. The hot tub was great and you can't beat the space. The two decks and large driveway plus basement make for a great party indoor, outdoor, or a bit of both. The owner is also extremely fair and easy to work with. We ran out of propane and his maintenance guy was there within 20 minutes on an early Saturday morning. Great beer distributor nearby right off the exit and reasonable drive to paintball, rafting, bike trails, hunting woods, and "casino". Only criticisms - could use a decent radio and definitely needs new grill or at least new grill plates and burners, but we got by and the kitchen is very well stocked with supplies.

WE HAD A FABULOUS TIME AT THE SIERRA VISTA!

  • 5 of 5
Plenty of space for my extended family! We were celebrating my daughter and niece's 10th birthday. We were thrilled to wake up to 4+ inches of snow Saturday morning. The children loved the hot tub, hot cocoa and roasted marshmallows from the fire pit. We had many pool tournaments over the weekend. We were able to snow tube right near the property. Gorgeous views from the house and deck. All cooking materials we needed were there. Owner responds to questions and concerns immediately. I would highly recommend this cabin. Love that it is pet friendly!

GREAT SET UP, GREAT VIEWS = NO BRAINER

  • 5 of 5
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!!

WHAT AN AMAZING ~ RELAXING PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
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!

BEAUTIFUL HOME! PERFECT FOR ANY AGE LOOKING TO KICK YOUR FEET UP AND ENJOY A BEAUTIFUL VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
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.

  • 5 of 5
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 ; )

Thank you for staying in our log home. I am very happy that you and your graduate school friends had a positive experience. It really feels good to know that the Memorial Day weekend was a success for everyone. Please return in the future because you always will be welcome here - ideal families.
