Bushkill vacation rentals

Bushkill’s surrounded by forests and waterfalls

Bushkill is about as far east as it is possible to go in Pennsylvania, pushed right up against the Delaware River that marks the state’s boundary with New Jersey. It’s a great spot for keen outdoor enthusiasts as the community lies on the edge of the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Park – a beautiful forested wilderness bursting with hidden creeks and glittering waterfalls. Bushkill vacation rentals range from romantic wooden chalets hidden in the woods to imposing stone-clad homes.

Country sports aplenty in Bushkill

This is hunting and fishing country, when in season. Keen fishers will enjoy striding out into the crystal-clear streams and lakes, rod in hand, on the promise of pulling fresh trout from the sparkling waters. Enjoy 1 of the 5 golf courses (including a Jack Nicklaus Signature Course) in the area, or get back to nature and hike through the shaded woodlands and hemlock ravines accompanied by birdsong until its sound is subsumed by the rush and pounding of white water spilling down rock. Some of the tallest and most impressive waterfalls in the state can be discovered among these forests.

Beautiful waterfalls and family activities

One of the key attractions of the area is the unique series of 8 waterfalls, nestled deep in the wooded Pocono Mountains, which make up Bushkill Falls. This small and attractive park and visitors center, 5 minutes away from Bushkill, offers great views over the main falls, a series of short trails, kids’ playground, and plenty of family fun. Buy a bag of mining rough and pan for gem stones in the trough – your kids will discover the brightest of stones. Or hire a paddle boat on the twinkling lake, laze back, and enjoy the sunshine.

Summer sun and snow season activities

During the sunny summer months, this area attracts rafting, hiking, fishing, and horseback riding enthusiasts, while in the winter it draws a different crowd. Ideally placed to enjoy the wintery delights of Shawnee Mountain, you’ll find plenty of Bushkill vacation rentals just minutes from the slopes so you and the whole family can enjoy zig zagging down well-groomed pistes and zooming around on snow tubes.

A natural paradise beckons all around

The natural environment is the star in Bushkill. The Delaware Water Gap Park is home to numerous wildlife, including black bear, bald eagles, and peregrine falcons – even if you’re not an ornithologist, you’ll find the birdwatching exciting here. Hikers can pick up the Appalachian Trail, which cuts through the park on the eastern side of the Delaware River. Why not paddle or swim in the quiet waters, or toast marshmallows and tell ghost stories around a sunset campfire on the shore with friends and family?
