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 White Haven

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!

Map

Car: necessary

Located on top of mountain overlooking the Lehigh River

Gorge - whitewater rafting, bike trails and skiing.

Other Activities: Miniature Golf, Shopping, Wildlife Viewing, Kayaking, Snowboarding, Snowmobiling, Rock Climbing

Ski: Jack Frost and Big Boulder Ski Resorts

Camelback Ski Resort

Incredible home, great view – helpful, attendent owner.

  • 5 of 5

Rented this place for a low-key get-together with a collection of far-flung friends. We had no issues with cars/ parking, and when we rolled up, we were floored by the beautiful beautiful view. The home is solid, well maintained, and accurate-as-advertised: sleeps many, entertains many. We loved the porches, grill, pool table, hot tub, bar, etc. Couldn't ask for better – thank you again, Neil!

Amazing Birthday Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My family, friends and I absolutely loved our stay here. The house was gorgeous and clean. It accommodated all 10 of us perfectly. The beds were comfortable. All towels clean and plentiful. The view is exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed the Jacuzzi and pool table. Neil provided the utmost customer service and Ken was readily available to help if needed. My guest and I will be coming back again!

Roomy Country Home

  • 5 of 5

Plenty of room here to spread out, with three levels that are comfortable and welcoming. The view from the back is magnificent and the spacious deck provides for great relaxation; ,for anyone with a bad back (me) the rockers are great. Barbeque grill clean and ready to go - home clean and bright! As someone else mentioned, the area is remote and beautiful but there is another cabin a couple of hundred feet away - this did not spoil our stay. Hickory State Park, a very short drive away, has excellent hiking trails that end at waterfalls - amenities there are free. Enjoy!

Amazing House with Great Owner

  • 5 of 5

A few buddies and I get together every year for a weekend in the Poconos and selected this house - we were not disappointed! The house is very roomy (nine beds in total!) and has pretty decent outside space as well. The view from the back porch is absolutely amazing and the inside is extremely clean.

Neil was as helpful as can be and took care of all of our needs. Great owner!

I encourage anyone looking for a great weekend to rent this house!

perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

I stay with some friend, and this is perfect vacation. everything available be in here I want.

I recommend especially some group families.

私はアメリカ駐在中の日本人です。

初めてアメリカで日本人からの友人を招いてこちらに宿泊しましたが、日本人からみてもとても清潔で満足できるオーナーさんの対応です。写真の通り最高のロケーションで、焚き火のスポットやジャグジー、ビリヤードもあり大人から子供までみんながら満足できるコテージでした。

日本人にもとってもお勧めです。
