I am a pastor/church planter in Philadelphia. My wife, Dawn, is a musician and beauty consultant. We have 5 grown children and 8 grandchildren.

John Davis purchased this chalet in 2003

This is our home away from home - a place to relax and unwind before returning to city.

The home is fully equipped, comfortable, and close enough to the attractions of the Poconos, yet secluded enough for peace and quiet.

A Serene Retreat!

  • 5 of 5
Staying at the Davis Chalet was a welcome retreat from the busyness of every day life. From sitting on the porch enjoying the sound of the stream, to taking walks around the neighborhood, every part of my stay was extremely relaxing! The house is also clean and well kept. You can tell the owners take good care of it. Would definitely go again!

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a relaxing weekend away at the Davis Chalet! It is the perfect place to stay - a great amount of space in the home, beautiful grounds with a lovely stream out back, and all the amenities you could ask for. It is such a welcoming, warm home - truly a home away from home! We can't wait to go back!

Great Time

  • 4 of 5
Rented the Davis Chalet for 3 nights for 4 couples and we had a blast. Had to deal with a minor hot water issue the first night but nothing major. The place was clean with ample space for all of us. The house doesn't have cable TV but that was not an issue as we weren't on vacation to watch TV. We took full advantage of multiple decks with the fire pit on the lower deck and the grill on the main deck. Within an hour of our arrival we had the wood stove going and the main level and loft level were both very warm. Took advantage of the location and made the short trip up to Camelback(approx. 40 min drive) for skiing/snowboarding on Friday night and paintball Saturday(even though it was maybe 12 degrees outside). If you are looking for a nice place to go with some friends, this is it. Sure a hot tub would be nice(hint hint to the owner) but all things considered we were all very happy and open to renting again next winter.

Amazing chalet!

  • 5 of 5
The chalet was amazing therefore I would give 5 stars +. The detailed instructions given by John were so helpful and provided great directions to the house as well as all the tips for use of the house. The property was very clean. Everything was provided from clean sheets and towels, the kitchen was very well equipped. I definitely will go back and I had recommended it already to my friends.
