About Paul and Linda

Although not originally from the Pocono area, we have worked locally for the past 10 years. We have grown to enjoy the seasonal changes and the more relaxed life style of the Pocono mountains.

Paul and Linda purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Paul and Linda chose Pennsylvania

We chose this centrally located community because of easy access to all sport and leisure activities in the surrounding area.

What makes this cottage unique

The layout of this home was perfect for a family gathering of children and grandchildren. The upstair loft and bedrooms provides the granchildren a play area while us adults can engage in uninteruppted conversation in the downstair living room.

Lovely house!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for 6 days and had a wonderful time - the rooms are a great size for two couples and two children and the house is near to a lot of local attractions - there is a nice little playground on the development that my kids really liked.

The house was clean and all in order and even has a shed to store your gear in.

The owners were very courteous and easy to work with.

All round a lovely trip to a lovely part of the world!

Cozy Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We love going to this mountain house! There is plenty of comfortable places to sleep our family of 5. A big dining table makes for great family meal times after a long day spent at the lake swimming. We also enjoy how close it is to the local ski mountains and other sites like the Jim Thorpe railway. This place is clean, convenient and a perfect getaway.
