Overview

Stroudsburg 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.

Rustic yet elegant cabin hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We walked into the cabin to flickering candlelight and music! And we quickly began to explore. Each room had beautiful decor and the creek room view is phenomenal. We were so glad the hot tub was still open. We spent some relaxing time there.

We highly recommend this cabin and feel very fortunate that we got to stay and celebrate our 13th anniversary!

Thank you!!!

Owner's Response: Wow! VERY surprised to see this as it is, as one can see, our first "non-five-star" and "non-over-the-top-glowing" review in years and years. Not sure why this guest was dissatisfied as we did not hear from him nor did we even know that he left a day early. We only hope that the remaining scores and scores of sparkling reviews speak to the magic that is the Creekhouse. Thanks to all who have stayed with us and to all who will stay with us far into the future! :)

MY HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5

I have visited Big Al's just about every year for at least six years--I have been there for every season, and each season brings a different delight and atmosphere to the place. This year I was quite happy to see a new (very WELCOMED) addition. A large in-the-wall AC unit that kept me quite comfy for the 3 days I was there with heat in the 90s and the humidity at about 89%. Like I mentioned in my title to the review, Big Al's truly IS my home away from home.

Words are Not Enough

  • 5 of 5

Truly one of the most impressive places I have ever been. Every little detail was cared for. The property is huge and there is so much to discover. There were wonderful surprises around every corner. My wife and I were constantly finding something new to be amazed by. This place is tranquil, zen, rejuvenative; a little slice of heaven. We tried everything out from relaxing and reading in the creek room, laying out in the sun, swimming and tubing in the creek, lounging in the hot tub, cooking steaks and corn on the grill, sitting around the camp fire, hiking along the trail and enjoying the beautiful pond. This is a one of a kind gem.
