Owner is a writer and investor who lives in nearby Milford and New York City. Loves dogs, nature, reading and gentle, kind people.

Sean Strub purchased this lodge in 1997

I bought the property because it is exceedingly private, evokes a spiritual connection to nature and it is movie-set gorgeous. It is also close to NYC, only 75 miles away, but it feels like you’re in the Canadian northwoods or somewhere far away from the stresses and pressures of urban life.

Mushrooming; trout fishing; hiking; wildlife including black bear, deer, wild turkey, mountain lion. Very few mosquitoes (the bats eat them.)

Pond; stream; waterfall; swimming hole.

Exceptional privacy, half-mile long driveway.

The Historic Village of Milford - the birthplace of the American Conservation movement - is only 6 miles away, with heritage & cultural attractions, antiques and great restaurants (including the Delmonico Room, Bar Louis & the Patisserie Fauchere at The Hotel Fauchere, co-owned by the owner of this cottage).

70,000 acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.

Beyond Expectations!

My husband and I arrived with our dog on a rainy and chilly Sunday afternoon. Upon our arrival, we were warmly greeted by the property management team. We stayed in the main lodge and it was plenty big, spotless, and warm and cozy. It was fully equipped with modern amenities, fresh linens, and hot water. Ready for our use. Suffice to say, it didn't take long for us to settle in and hunker down for 3 wintery days in the Poconos.

We didn't have much of an opportunity to explore our first day as the rain put a damper on things, but when the weather cleared, the scenery was spectacular. The creek and falls breathtaking. We must have taken hundreds of pics as we explored the property.

It was the perfect 3 day getaway to decompress and celebrate a new year. Truth be told, the website simply does not do this scenic property justice. Our lodge was exquisite and it was an easy drive from the Philly area.

Thank you Agnus, Gene, Bill, and Sean for your hospitality. We look forward to returning one day.

New Yorkers and The Woods!

As a New Yorker (city girl), nature and I do not usually mix well except in this case. A group of my friends (all New Yorkers ranging from 28-40) took a long weekend trip and we cannot rave enough about how perfect it was. This place is gorgeous! Not only is the cabin rustic but well maintained, it has a great lay out for entertaining a group of friends. The kitchen was stocked with the right amount of dish-ware and cookware, the back deck is large, the grill is new, the fireplace is amazing, and the property is picturesque. We did everything us city-folk don't usually get to do- made s'mores on the outside fire-pits, hiked along the stream, did yoga on the deck overlooking the stream, watched the star filled night sky, and our favorite- sat around the fireplace. We also had a dog who enjoyed every moment of it!

Renting was very easy and all my questions were answered promptly. The owner was very helpful and his staff was very accommodating. Thank you again.

Awesome view. Ideal for hiking along the creek. For nature lovers. Away from distractions. Perfect to reconnect with family and friends and have quality time. Owner very friendly and helpful. A real cabin in the woods. We were able to use the internet but not via wifi/wireless. There are many books for reading and table games. Our miniature poodle dog had a great time here.

Perfect Family Stay!

We needed a place that could house several (now adult) children, and our parents, and our own children. The lodge was a perfect fit. With bedrooms circling a main living space, we all had privacy, but could spend our afternoons and evenings together.

Lodge was in a great location, close to town, but felt isolated and peaceful on site. The waterfalls were gorgeous. Very happy overall!

Beautiful cabin escape

  • Submitted: Nov 23, 2012
  • Stayed: Nov 2012
This cabin was fantastic. It had 4 bedrooms with queen sized beds and easily accomodated our group of 8 people (dogs too). Big delicious dinners around the large dinning room table, card games, reading, coffee and maybe a few beers-we made use... If included the other two cabins near by, you would have 7 bedrooms on a sprawling compound. In any event, the cabin was furnished comfortably, the fire roared all weekend and the grounds offered ample opportunity to explore. The stream below the house is truly a magnificent mountain stream, and the warmer months, a perfect spot to cool off. Milford offers easy amenities (though I would stay away from the Mt. Haven Resort restaurant; though nearby, it is awful) and the Delware River offers opportunities for hikes, waterfalls, swimming, views, and other outdoor fun. We will be back.
