This 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath retreat features a dramatic Great Room, Vaulted Ceilings, Wood-Burning Fireplace, Gourmet Kitchen, Dining Room, an upstairs Home Theatre/Media Room, and a Palatial Master Suite with sky views. The Master Bath features a fabulous soaking tub and massive walk-in stone shower with multiple jets! The house also features a stocked library, Wi-Fi, 52' HD Flat Screen, Central Air, BBQ Grill, Outdoor Fire Circle, a huge Front Deck. The fully screened-in Back Porch--complete with 6 person Hot Tub--overlooks the forest and Firepit! This home is not in a suburban-style community, so come enjoy the privacy you've been looking for. You can explore thousands of acres right out the back door!!

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.

THE property was breath taking.....

  • 5 of 5

This trip was a getaway for friends and family. It was just a weekend trip but the next time i will stay atleast 4days.... the house was beautiful and everything was just like the pictures. We rented ATVs , went ZIP LINING, and did other activities.... we didnt have enough time to go jet skiing but next time we will do it all. We grilled out and lit the fire pit it wad so much fun and the jacuzzi was heaven..... i heard there were black bears there and i wasnt sure how i felt about that but i got information on black bears so i felt ok, just be aware that they are there and you will be fine. On the morning of check out we saw one in the back yard and it just walked thru probably looking for food, make sure u clean up and NEVER leave food out. ( BTW get a air horn they work great to scare off a bear) if you are lucky enough to find this house on a rental website YOU MUST STAY HERE!!!!! I Will BE BACK NEXT YEAR.....

Clean, beautiful setting.

  • 4 of 5

The home is beautiful in the middle of the woods. The home was clean, everything in its place, equipped with things we did not have to take ourselves (toaster, coffee pot, all kitchen utensils etc). I definitely recommend it and would stay again in the 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.
