Overview

About the property

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 free wifi 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 cedar hot tub. It's creekside and under the stars! (Cedar Hot Tub NOT OPERATIONAL during Late Fall/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 Late Spring to October!

Romantic ENGAGEMENT story

  • 5 of 5

We visited 2 years ago and totally fell in love and this time we came back in the spring where the creek was running, it was warm enough to open the windows by the creek in the reading room and we got engaged! This is the most private, all-inclusive cabin in the pocono region! We love how you can take walks up to the lake, bring a fishing pole to cast, make fires outside or use the hottub. Andrew is the best host and their cleaning and management staff is helpful and friendly! Easy check-in process and check-out process keeps the weekend private and peaceful. I could not recommend this property more!!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Big Al's Creek House was everything my fiancé and I hoped for. Tucked in the middle of the mountains with all of the things you would picture or want from the mountain house experience. We loved relaxing by the fire, enjoying the creek, walking the trails, and disconnecting for the weekend. Thank you for making our weekend in the Poconos a memorable one!

Best experience! Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend, dog and I spent the weekend at the Creek House and had the absolute best time! The moment we arrived on the property we were in heaven… I swear we spent at least 30 minutes walking around and taking pictures before we even went inside because everything was so beautiful. The house sits on acres and acres of forest and is right next to the most magical creek. There’s a footbridge that crosses the creek and leads you to a great hiking trail and even a lake!

One of my favorite things about the Creek House is that when you’re on the property, you feel completely secluded and away from it all, but you’re really only a 5-minute drive from a quaint little town with a country store and local bars/restaurants, and only about a 15-minute drive from more restaurants and grocery stores. As for the house itself, it had absolutely everything we needed and was the perfect atmosphere for complete relaxation! The kitchen was fully stocked and the living room was super cozy with a tv, fireplace and a huge leather couch. There’s also a fantastic view of the creek from every window in the house.

I also want to mention that the owner is literally the nicest, most accommodating person. There was a devastating snowstorm just a few days before our trip and the house lost power and a tree had fallen on the creek’s bridge. The owner contacted me immediately to let me know the situation and was so kind and reassuring. Even though the situation was completely out of his hands, he did everything he could to make sure that the house was in perfect order just in time for our trip. Not only was the power fixed, but he also removed the fallen tree and rebuilt the footbridge! How amazing is that?!

I really cannot say enough great things about the Creek House and my experience. I recommend this place to anyone looking to reset/recharge their soul. I can’t wait to go back!

Map

With the beautiful creek and the romantic setting, why would anyone want to leave Big Al's Creek House? But if one did have cause to venture out, Big Al's Creek House is conveniently central to all Pocono Mountain resort area attractions.

These include: Camelback Ski Mountain, Camelback Play Park, Shawnee resort/Playhouse, The Crossings Outlet Center, Mt. Airy Casino, Great Wolf Lodge, Pocono’s NASCAR Raceway, Memory town, Tobyhanna State Park, and Pocono’s Brewing Company. A short drive will take you to either Lake Wallenpaupak for motorboat rentals, water skiing, tubing, Jet Ski rentals, sailing, and fishing or to Jack Frost/Big Boulder for skiing and Jim Thorpe for the areas best white water rafting or the quaint historical village for antiquing!
