About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 1/2 Baths, sleeps up to 6

Our quiet two story chalet, on two secluded acres, is centrally located to numerous Pocono attractions and is available for all four seasons of the year. Relax at our chalet on the huge deck, or upper balcony, overlooking Pine Run Creek. Take a walk on the private paths through the rhododendrons to your own picnic area or on a meandering trail on the property crossing three bridges over two streams leading into a untouched forest, where wildlife is often seen. Roast marshmallows at our fire pit, or grill some of your favorite foods on our gas grill.

Our Chalet will accommodate up to 6 people. One upstairs bedroom has one queen bed and one twin bed while the other has one full size bed with a half bath. A long hallway closet runs between both bedrooms. The lower level bedroom has a full size bed with closet. The downstairs offers a full bathroom and an open concept kitchen, dining area and family room that lead out to a large deck overlooking the stream. A 42' Flat Screen TV, DVD/Blue Ray Player and WIFI make this the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the secluded beautiful surroundings.

Visit Beltzville Lake State Park, only one mile down the road with its sand beach, wooded picnic areas, boat launch and miles of marked hiking trails. Enjoy fishing, hunting, water skiing, and cross country snow skiing. If you have a boat, bring it along, we have plenty of parking at our home.

Nearby attractions also include Penn's Peak, Historic Jim Thorpe, Lehigh Gorge, Pocono International Raceway, Blue Mountain Ski Resort, Pocono Whitewater Rafting, Skirmish, Pocono Biking and many more.

About Glenn and Crystal

We have grown up & lived in this area all are lives. We enjoy the area's natural beauty, wildlife, scenic views, events and freindly people.

Glenn and Crystal purchased this chalet in 2012

Why Glenn and Crystal chose Lehighton

This property was in our family for over 30 years and gives you a sense of tranquility by being surrounded by trees, wildlife, natural streams and all the things that Mother Nature can offer for this area.

What makes this chalet unique

The open concept of the home and double sliding glass doors in the living room make you feel like you are outdoors your entire stay. The view and the sound of the stream running through the property is especially soothing to the soul.

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had great time during our stay. Glenn was one of the best host we came across. Yeah he was bit upset with us as we had few friends visit us on the first night and stayed too long near the fire pit (so do not think of having more than 6 ppl). But well he let us stay for the rest of our reservation. There was lot to explore in this property, unfortunately we had stayed only for 2 nights. This is the best hideaway I have ever been too. It was worth every penny and yeah absolutely recommend to anyone interested in having a great time. Thankyou Glenn and Crystal.

Idyllic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We needed some time away from busy and frenetic life and this was really the perfect spot. It is not too far away from the city and is completely isolated. We enjoyed just sitting on the private deck overlooking the woods and listening to the stream flowing. The cabin is cosy and well-stocked and clean. Glenn was very responsive and helpful all the way along. The BBQ and firepit were well stocked and ready to use. We loved getting to walk in the forest on the property and just sit watching the river. We highly recommend Owl Creek Hideaway as a great escape.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Owl Creek Hideaway! Everything was clean and well maintained, we loved the trails behind the house, the fire pit and the outdoor games. Glenn was so accommodating and had everything there we needed for the weekend, which made for easy packing. We hope to come back again.

Fantasy forest retreat

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect.. it was me and my boyfriend staying here super cozy and the amount of space was just right.. you could absolutely fit more people for sure, we ended up not really using the top floor but it was nice to have being there, which defiantly added to the vibe of the place.. the deck is fun, got lots of use out of the BBQ.. games in the front were a sweet touch. We absolutely spent hours playing.. the backyard though is what really got us. The trails ended up being so amazing and it was so fun to get lost in them. Everything is only 5 minutes away. Really great location.

Best rental I've ever had - honestly

  • 5 of 5

Not only is the house perfectly cozy and incredibly clean, the property immaculately manicured, and the fire pit by the river absolutely enchanting; but Glenn and Crystal go above and beyond to make sure your stay is as comfortable and worry free as possible. The house is fully stocked to keep you from feeling like you have to lug all your own supplies for a weekend getaway. When I met Glenn for the walkthrough I mentioned my friends and I were doing a Spartan Race at a nearby Sky Resort, the morning that we were checking out he stopped by to pass along a local newspaper article about the race that we might be interested. They pay attentions and earnestly hope that whoever stays at their cottage has a fantastic time, and we did.
