Poconos Cabin Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom -- but can sleep up to five or six

We guarantee... Big Al's Creek House is like NOTHING else in the Poconos!

The Creek House is a retro-rustic getaway with luxury lodge touches and plush amenities (including wi-fi and satellite TV) – all in an ultra-private creekside setting. This peaceful, fully equipped house features design with a mountain cabin feel that takes you back to a simpler time. Plus, you’re close to all the MANY attractions the area has to offer. In fall and winter, enjoy the sounds of a warm, crackling fire and the creek rushing outside your window, and toast friends and family in style, comfort and serenity. In spring and summer, fish from your wooden bridge, have dinner on the back rock patio and sit in the brand new cedar hot tub. It's creekside and under the stars! (Cedar Hot Tub not operational during Winter season -- 10/1 to approximately 4/1)

Call us to hear just how beautiful and affordable your escape can be ... book now, limited space for select weekends.

Note: There is a 1200 (twelve hundred) square foot unoccupied studio on the property in close proximity to the creek house. There is also a cedar hot tub with steps down to the creek and seasonal operation usually from about Spring to October!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our one year and summer vacation all rolled into one! We enjoyed fishing for trout and cute sunnies in the pond. Our jobs are both very stressful, so when we are by the creek all that stress melted away.

This is a perfect place to see the true beauty of the outdoors. From all the wildlife to the serene views.

THANKS for this lovely piece of heaven.

Unique Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Creek House! The cabin was clean and accommodated all of our needs. The property is beautiful and serene. The kids had a great time floating in the creek on their tubes and exploring the trail to the pond. What a great way to escape reality for a few days. Thank you so much for sharing this lovely property!

Magical property

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had an amazing time at big Al's. The cabin is adorable with immaculate decor. The cedar hot tub is perfect! We spent a good deal of time on the dock fishing and just generally soaking in the beauty and quiet of the pond. This is truly a magical property!

Simply Perect!!

  • 5 of 5

Big Al's was just what we were looking for to escape ! Everything was perfect ....from the awesome cabin, which has everything you'd need, to the beautiful property for relaxing, fishing, watching wildlife, having a bonfire, etc. and we LOVED the creek side hot tub! We will definitely be back!

The cabin really is creek side!

  • 5 of 5

Finally a place that is decorated tastefully and truly next to a rushing creek. I was concerned the creek would be half dried up or far away. It was right out the windows and we could hear it everywhere in the house. Well kept, lovely. The space is small - 4 adults at the most, and that means one on an air mattress. It's just right for 2 adults and kids though... We did fit 4 adults, but it was a squeeze. Regardless, we had a terrific time.

Owner's Response: Katherine and her family were AMAZING GUESTS, and we were SO FORTUNATE to have them visit. Unfortunately, when it came time to rate them as our guests after their stay, instead of FIVE STARS Homeaway posted them as receiving ONE STAR from us. (!) Sigh... These folks were DEFINITELY FIVE STAR GUESTS!! Until Homeaway is able to correct the situation and rectify their rating, we just wanted them (and EVERYONE else out there) to know what incredible guests they were. We LOVED hosting them. Hopefully Homeaway will be able to get it straightened out soon. Thanks all and THANKS FAMILY once again for staying with us! Kevin and Andrew

Perfect Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Big Al's Creek House for 10 days for our honeymoon. Just a 4 hour ride from Rochester, NY, we arrived quickly and were excited to begin our stay. The cabin is very comfortable! It's rustic with modern amenities. There's air conditioning which came in handy because we had a few very warm days. On the other days, it was so nice and relaxing to open the windows and listen to the creek. The hot tub and creek are absolutely amazing! We fished off the dock in the private pond, which is about a half mile down the trail. The property is stunning, as you will see from the pictures. There's a ton of great activities very close to the location of the creek house. We went whitewater rafting at Pocono Whitewater, which was a 40 minute drive from the creek house. We also did a stock car race at the Pocono Raceway, which was a 20 minute ride from the cabin. After the stock car race, we drove about 10 minutes from the race track and visited Mount Airy Casino and Resort. There's also a lot of great restaurants in the surrounding area. We recommend driving around and seeing the sights too! The mountains are incredible. The creek house itself allows you to relax because it has the comforts of home. The leather couch is super comfortable and the queen sized bed is great too. If you're traveling with more people than who would sleep in the bedroom, the couch is a great spot. There's also a massive couch in the creek room, which could sleep two adults. We recommend bringing water shoes to walk around in the creek because it has a rocky floor. Overall, it was a fantastic honeymoon vacation. We agree that it will be a great location for when we have kids. There's so much to do and pictures do not do this place justice whatsoever. Book it, it's AMAZING! Greg and Lauren M.
