About Neil Brown

I am a retired university professor and my wife is a retired

elementary school teacher.

Neil Brown purchased this house in 2006

Why Neil Brown chose Pennsylvania

We wanted an Amish-built log home with an outstanding view.

Built this log home on the edge of a cliff overlooking

the Lehigh River Gorge - the best view of any home in the

Poconos.

What makes this house unique

The log home is ideally located near all of the activities in the Poconos - yet, secluded. You have the best of both worlds - lots of things to do yet away from the mad rush!

Great looking lodge with plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

My group and i had a great time this past weekend staying at the chalet! Neil was very helpful leading up to the trip and Bill was on site to help make sure the driveway was plowed. The house is great for a large group and is close to grocery stores. Will definitely look to come back again!

Beautiful Log Cabin Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 3 couples, a 9 month old, and our family dog had a great time over Thanksgiving Weekend. We were looking for an escape from NY and to just relax - the Chalet provided exactly what we were looking for. The views were amazing and the home itself with the cabin feel provided for the perfect mountain atmosphere. We had now problem cooking big meals in the spacious and functional kitchen and the house can sleep a ton of people comfortably. It was great having the mountain location but still only being a short drive from the casinos, mount Pocono, and Camelback. Neil and his team were great hosts and provided us with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this place to all those interested.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Neil's cabin was everything we wanted for a dude's weekend in the Poconos. An unreal deck and view, space in the front of the house for yard games, and plenty of room inside to crash. The home was VERY clean and had everything you could need for your trip: a fully equipped kitchen, grill, towels and a hot tub! Would highly recommend for any groups looking to get away. Thanks, Neil!

Gorgeous view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in this very spacious and well-maintained log home! We loved sitting on the deck and in the hot tub enjoying the beautiful view! The state park nearby had a wonderful lake to swim in and beautiful hikes. We would love to come back and stay again!
