About John Davis

I am a pastor/church planter in Philadelphia. My wife, Dawn, is a musician and beauty consultant. We have 5 grown children and 9 grandchildren.

John Davis purchased this chalet in 2003

Why John Davis chose Thornhurst

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

What makes this chalet unique

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

Nice Place to Stay

Nice place! We stayed a few days with some friends. The listing info was accurate. The place was clean, & the kitchen was well stocked with dishes & appliances. There were many toys for my son to play with. The owner responded quickly to my questions and was pleasant.

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!
