This vacation cottage located in Skytop, PA, is perfect for a romantic weekend getaway or a fun-filled vacation with the family. Located in the heart of the Pocono Mountains, a four season vacation region, this home's charm is evident in the craftsman details of it's 1930's origin. The original hardwood floors and heart pine moldings remain while the kitchen and baths have been refurbished with designer details. While the home's interior features are nostalgic and cozy, the outdoors explodes with a profusion of perennial flowers, herbs, and orchards which surround the 'lounging spaces' in the back yard, the summerhouse and pool.
The Skytop area in the Poconos has everything a top-notch vacation region sports, from fine restaurants and golf to ski slopes and antique shops.

My husband and I purchased this home when our daughter was an infant in the early 1990's. We were both professionals in the residential building industry, so our 'sweat equity' and contractor contacts have paid off over the years. We were able to do many designer upgrades to our home. My husband and daughter, Hannah, planted the apple, plum and peach orchards and I have a green thumb when it comes to flowers and shrubs. We enjoy all the fruits (literally) of our labor each harvest season. This home has been a 'labor of love' and we are pleased to share it with you!
Our home has been a primary residence until early fall of 2010. In order to keep it 'in the family' and available for future family vacation traditions, we decided to share it (and, of course, some of the costs!) with vacationers who will enjoy it as well.
Napping on the couch in the Summerhouse, walking barefoot from the bedroom to the pool, showering outside (hot water!!) while looking at the mountainside, bicycling on the quiet backroads, walking in the snow around Skytop Resort, sledding down the hill in the side yard, and cross-country skiing!
