Located 32 miles or less from Shawnee and Camelback Ski Resorts, 25 miles from Lake Wallenpaupack and 17 miles from Milford, PA (10 Coolest Small Towns, 2007)

Our favorite Activities in the area: For personal pampering, we absolutely love the Pure Day Spa in East Stroudsburg. The spa is beautiful, the services extensive, and the staff professional and pleasant. While you are in town, stop at Liquid for dinner and drinks.

Historic Milford, PA is one of our favorite local towns. The food and ambiance at Hotel Fauchere and its more casual Bar Louis, are superlative and the shops along Main Street should not be missed.

We also enjoy hiking and waterfall-watching at George W. Childs park just down the road. Additional hikes are available all through the area, but the hiking trails at PEEC (Pocono Environmental Education Center) are varied and the staff there are available for education and assistance. Pick whichever hike fits your mood!

About Brett Jarvis

Pocono Dream Cabins is family owned and operated. After moving to the Poconos from NYC, we soon discovered how amazingly beautiful and serene the Poconos truly are--especially considering how close we are to NYC and Philadelphia. Our cabins are approximately 1.5 hours from NYC and 2 hours from Philadelphia. We have had guests from as far away as Holland, and as close as just across the border of New Jersey. Our cabins are fully stocked with all the amenities, including towels and linens.

Brett Jarvis purchased this house in 2008

Beautiful cozy home

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed here for two nights with a small group and two dogs. It is perfectly located tucked back into the woods, but very easy to find! It was even prettier in person! Fully stocked with wood for the fire place, and even outdoor cigarette towers for a few of my smoking friends. The kitchen was fantastic to cook in for a group, with a full island, fully stocked cabinets and even a wine fridge. The jacuzzi was a little smaller than we expected but it was great nonetheless. There was a bit of snow a few days before our arrival so I needed to shovel out the front deck and back fire pit, but I can’t complain because they left out two shovels and salt. Overall, I had a great weekend getaway in this beautiful cozy home. Definetly planning a trip back in the warmer weather!

Beautiful winter stay (bring own pantry supplies)

  • 4 of 5

Five of us had a great stay over MLK weekend at this beautiful house. There was plenty of firewood and a bag of pellets to build a hearty fire every day. The hot tub worked great and could fit all of us comfortably. The master suite upstairs is glorious with many windows throughout the bedroom and bathroom. However, one of the bedrooms beneath the master gets very noisy with every footstep above - not great for a light sleeper. A couple things to note, not issues per se: there is nothing in the pantry so bring even the basics like salt, pepper, olive oil, foil etc, no curtains in any of the rooms and weak/average shower pressure. None of these factors should prevent you from booking though. It's a lovely property that's close to Dingmans Falls which is absolutely gorgeous in the winter and the owner Brett is fantastic to communicate with throughout the process.

My family and i really enjoyed our stay. It was everything the pictures showed!!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay. Brett was great to deal with. Always responded on time. Hot tub was enjoyable just took many hours to heat up. My only suggestion is fixing the shower in the master bathroom. Couldnt enjoy all the wall jets as there was no water pressure and it seemed like it didnt work. All in all beautiful place. Definitely would love to stay here again. Thank you for this wonderful Christmas time with my family. .

Beautiful quiet place

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for what I was looking for. It was clean and cozy. My wife and I enjoyed the area around it there was plenty to do, but also enjoyed the piece and quiet once we returned to the house. Friendly and helpful owner. We look forward to going back in the near future.

Map

Nearest Airport
70 Miles
Newark Liberty
Car: recommended

There is a huge area of public land, lakes, ponds, wetlands, and forest surrounding the property. Nearby you'll find the Mountain Laurel Center with concerts and events, Pecks Pond, where you can see Bald Eagles, rent boats and fish, or eat at the historic Pecks Pond Inn. Lake Wallenpaupack, the third largest body of water in PA, is 20 minutes away. High Knob, one of the highest mountains in the Poconos, is just a few minutes away. Numerous ski areas, golf courses, paintball, boating, hiking, ATV and Snowmobile trails, waterfalls, and more are all in the nearby area. Milford, Stroudsburg, Matamoras, and Hawley are all about 20-30 minutes away. This property is located centrally in the Poconos so you are within a reasonable drive of almost all of the attractions. What is most unique about this property is that it is not in a gated community, unlike most Pocono vacation rentals, so you can enjoy real seclusion while still being close to civilization.

Ski: As for skiing, the great thing about this location is that you are right in the middle of most of the Pocono ski areas. We get a lot of skiers who want to visit a different area every day. Tanglewood is only 12 miles away, about a 20 minute drive. You are also within 30 miles of Shawnee, Camelback, Mountain Creek, Big Bear, Alpine Mountain, Fernwood, and even Sno Mountain in Scranton is not out of reach.
