This chalet has been recently remodeled with all new floors, paint and many new appliances. The master bedroom contains a queen sized bed, the second bedroom has a full/queen hand hewn cedar bed and the third bedroom is known as the kids' room. The third bedroom has tons of videos, board games, nightlights, a bladeless fan and even a stuffed animal on each bed. The chalet is fully equipped with silver ware, cook ware, two coffee pots (one keurig), a washer/dryer, two showers, a large private lower deck, and a full complement of firewood. There is also a small Weber grill outside and a one person kayak can be available upon request. The lake across the street is electric motor or paddle only and the fishing is catch and release as the idea here is to protect the environment. Less than half a mile down the street is a playground, a basketball court, and tennis courts that are included in the rental price. During the summer months, your rental will also include use of the Olympic sized pool only a few blocks away. Plenty of listed amenities as well as the famous Poconos raceway, ski resorts, water parks, golf courses, and tons of scenic hiking and biking. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do.
We purchased this property last year because we have always wanted a mountain place with a real fireplace that was located in a natural setting. We enjoy geo caching, eating good food, shopping and taking scenic drives. While our main home is in Delaware, we are originally from Pennsylvania and something has been drawing us back home for years. We thought the winter would be our favorite time in the Poconos because we had visions of hitting the slopes, eating at the local brew pub, drying out by the fire, and then getting a relaxing supper at one of the local fine dining locations. The winter was fantastic, but this past summer we also had a blast playing tennis, walking the dog, mountain biking, and exploring lots of local trails. We will probably move up there after we retire, but until then, we would like to share our home with you. We only hope that you enjoy it as much as we have.

We first fell in love with this area as we were biking through the nearby Tobyhanna State Park. We loved the lake, the beach the hiking, the biking, the fishing, the bird-watching and the many opportunities to photograph local wildlife.
The great, private, yet central location is what truly made us fall in love with this property. Our neighbors are friendly, we are smack in the middle of multiple ski resorts and we can take advantage of both the local restaurants as well as take in a Broadway show. The location offers a multitude of options with something for everyone.
We had a great stay here with the kids. We also used the local bus station to go into NYC for a show. The location is scenic with lots of good hiking trails and lakes. The deer came up to the deck every morning and one of them even ate right out of my hand! Will be repeating this vacation.
We chose this house for a skiing weekend. It was a great experience. The owner was easily available to answer questions. The house itself was better than expected. We slept 5 comfortably and it could have fit more. The house was fully stocked... we especially appreciated all of the kitchen supplies. The firewood and fireplace was a great treat as well. We saw deer wandering around the house every day. Nice location nearby to the ski resorts but it was great being able to return to a home instead of a hotel. We would definitely like to return. Thanks!
The owner of this property is great! I was supposed to go to the cabin over a weekend but unfortunately, there were some family issues that arose within our group and we were not able to go. The owner was able to work around my circumstances and really helped me out! I am planning to book this place again soon as I know that the owner is reliable and trustworthy. Thank you again for all your help!!
This cabin met all of our expectations and it was much more than we expected. We did not want to leave cabin at all because we had such a a great time inside. The cabin is extremely cozy and has everything that you need. The firewood is a plus! I will never stay anywhere else when I visit the area. I felt very safe because the cabin is in a gated community. The deer visited the cabin on a daily basis. I can go on and on about this place. You have to visit to believe it!!! Can't wait to go back!!!!
Extremely clean, very welcome house, would definitely rent again
This was a great cabin! It had every amenity we needed for a long weekend including towels, sheets, and paper products. Very clean and decorated very nicely inside. The front porch was great for relaxing and feeding the deer that stopped by daily. We even saw a huge black bear walk right through the front yard! The master bedroom on the first floor was decorated very nicely and very conveniently located beside a full bathroom with a tub/shower. The two bedrooms upstairs were very roomy and shared a very nice sized, clean bathroom with a shower. The house was perfect for 4 adults and our two dogs. I/We loved the cabin and also loved working with the owners as they were very accomodating and friendly to all of our questions and requests!
The neighborhood on the other hand was a little to be desired. Many houses are in foreclosure and there was a significant amount of trash along the road. Not what I would have expected in the Poconos. I'm sure the neighborhood was very nice and booming at one point, but was "for lack of better words" a little depressing looking now. I did some research on the area (after our stay) and found that the area is very high in crime.and gang activity... once again not what I expected in the Poconos. It is a shame to me that this cute and well kept little cabin is plopped right in the middle of the scuminess. For the owners sake, I wish they could pick it up and move it to a better more well kept area.
Thank you to the owners for sharing your adorable cabin with my family because we truly loved the cabin itself. Unfortunately, due to circumstances that are out of your control (referring to the scumy and shady neighborhood), we probably won't be renting in Tobyhanna again.
My friends and I stayed here in January, and it was perfect. Snow was on the ground and the deer visited us on the deck in the morning. The fireplace was the icing on the cake, and made for the perfect ambiance. I would stay here again for another winter trip. It was a nice hideaway and not far from the slopes.
This location is prime for relaxation not only with the ski resorts nearby, but this chalet is also close to the Great Wolf water park, outlet stores and a nice complement of both casual and fine dining. The small nearby town of Mount Pocono has all of the living essentials such as banks, drug stores, grocery stores, liquor stores, a movie theater, miniature golf, miniature golf and most importantly, good pizza. This location is well known for deer and turkey sightings. If you like the eating, golfing and excitement that is associated with casinos, both the Mount Airy and the Mohegan Sun casinos are close to your temporary home. The local town also has affordable bus transportation into New York City if you wish to see an enchanting Broadway show. The quaint villages of Jim Thorpe and Shawnee are about 30 miles away and they both contain great pubs, arts, hiking, and whitewater. The Poconos have been a highly sought after vacation spot for generations. Come visit and you will see why our customers come back year after year. Enjoy!
