About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6+)

Relaxing and Refreshing, Simple and Cozy Getaway - Hideaway in a country home with Fireplace and Jacuzzi for Two on the Mountain Creek, with meditation deck above the water at the mini waterfall! Great home to relax, even by yourself!

Try all sorts of winter sports! All is conveniently nearby.

Welcome to 'Saw Creek Escape', a very quiet forest home, nestled right between two creeks in lush wooded settings.

In winter it's perfect for a simple and relaxing skiing vacation getaway.

In mid seasons it's an amazing place to rejuvenate while observing rapid nature changes, meditating, hiking and biking.

In warm season it has so much to offer!

Please feel free to ask for more pictures or see the link below!

Come here and enjoy being surrounded by nature, the calming sounds and views of the rolling water, the birds, crickets, far away wind chimes, occasional forest rain, and frogs. Unwind in the bubbling Jacuzzi. At night gaze at the absolutely amazing stars in the deep clear mountain skies. Watch the various wildlife; curious deers and their babies at times are passing by, we have seen all sorts of wild life here, even a mink. It's a perfect place for you if you are feeling tired, for healing yourself, for meditation and yoga.

If you need to pause, unlink and detach from the world, to recharge, to step back in time where it moves slower and there is plenty of it to take good care for yourself, or to JUST BE, this is exactly for you. It's a right choice for a long vacation or a weekend trip, to reconnect with self and nature, or for the time together with your special ones. You will feel right at home here.

This place is great for idealists and dreamers :)

Please be aware: if you are looking for a vacation place that is modern, upbeat, fully connected with outside world, well equipped with all the techs & toys, and with a typical hotel style of service or settings, this is not for you! If you are looking to throw a loud party this is a wrong place to rent! The neighborhood, the house, and surroundings are intended for peace and quiet.

The house is clean and cozy. It's a basic country house, simple, perfectly imperfect, inviting, low-key, rather secluded and private. It has 3 bedrooms, loft with big skylight and 2 baths. Master bedroom upstairs has a queen size bed, tall ceilings, Jacuzzi tub/whirlpool for two and the balcony that facing the creek!

The first floor has two bedrooms with double beds and 2 extra cots, full bath, well-equipped kitchen and a dishwashing machine. The living room has a leather sofa sleeper double size bed with a love seat, wood burning fireplace, and deck off dining area with the view of the Saw Creek stream. It is best suited for singles and small groups up to 6 people, even though it can accommodate up to 10 people.

The Saw Creek Estates is a tranquil, private, 24 hr. guarded gated community. It is located in the Delaware State Forest, right at the bank of Delaware River, near Bushkill Falls State Park. It's close to Shawnee (25 min.) and Camelback Resorts (40 min.) and about only 80 miles west of NYC (2:00 hrs.). It's very easy to reach from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Newark airport (1:40 hrs.)

This resort style community is filled with amenities and activities to choose from, to which you will have full access to.

It's just a 0.5 mile walk (!!) or 5 min drive from home to the Top of The World Complex, there you will find a nice Restaurant with scenic view, Outside and Inside Swimming Pools with Hot Tub, Fitness and Weight Rooms, Indoor Tennis and Racquetball Courts, and even a Ski Slope with the Lift! :)

You may want to check out ongoing events or free sports classes.

See below the list of all sorts of available amenities. For the seasonal info:

There are many other activities available off premises: Visiting State Parks, Scenic Trails Hiking, Rafting, Kayaking, Beaches and Boating, Exploring Caverns and Waterfalls, Pocono's Famous Flea Market, Crossings Outlets Shopping, and more (see the list below). Simply up for a guilty treat? Would 24 flavors of soft served ice cream at the nearby mini shop do it?

Please Note:

• There is no phone and no cable here. We have 44 DVDs here and you can bring your owns as well. If you really-really want to see cable please consider bringing your own Roku or comparable streaming device. It works.

• Basic Internet is available at no extra cost.

• Verizon Wireless has the best reception at this house.

• As there's no formal dining room, the dining area consists of the kitchen bar, a couple of available portable folding tables, a coffee table and outside desk dining table with plenty of chairs and stools.

• With your health and nature in mind, the house is painted with the finest quality Eco-friendly Aura paint. The color is 'White Vanilla' (of course :)...

• There is no well-developed public transportation; you will want to use a car.

• Sorry No Pets, No Smoking.

• We do require signed rental agreement.

• Please read all the info we will be sending you, it conveniently contains answers to all questions you may have. So you simply relax and enjoy every precious moment of your vacation :)

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask!

We look forward speaking with you!

Elena purchased this house in 2006

Why Elena chose Poconos

It's a small, simple, cozy, back in time, quiet, rustic kind of place in the natural setting. It's simply a nice place to relax and recharge. Everything is in the description and photos. Please ask questions. :)

What makes this house unique

The Creek. The beautiful mountain creek in your own backyard with a small deck above the water. Actually two creeks. Another small one in front of the house. Jacuzzi for two, wood burning fireplace, usually can see some while life and no one is around.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great Poconos getaway for the family!

  • 5 of 5

I took the kids (4 and 7) to the house for spring break, and we loved every minute of it. The house is perfectly located next to the creek, the area is safe and wooded, and we were surrounded by so many things to do and see. Bushkill was amazing, and we spent so much time walking the creek or roasting marshmallows. Elena was absolutely wonderful with the arrangements, and the house was a great place to go, unplug, and relax. Highly recommended!

The house was clean, very welcoming feel.

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were impressed with how spacious and open the house was. The 3 bedrooms were more than enough. The customer service was outstanding, Elena was very helpful in suggestions on the area. The top of the mountain Spa was a highlight with the pool a big hit. The restaurant was 5 star with a full bar and televisions abound. The food, service and views of the mountains from the restaurant were breath taking. I would highly recommend this location as a great get-a-away. We will be back in Feb for skiing.

This was a perfect quiet romantic retreat for our anniversary. We enjoyed having our coffee on the back porch while listening to the soothing stream and watching the colorful leafs fall. The skylights made us feel surrounded in nature while inside. Elena was very accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for something affordable and at the same time comfortable, cozy and quiet place. Elena kindly provided courtesy this house on the banks of a mountain river. The convenient arrangement of rooms, a spacious kitchen and a large fireplace in the living room provide the comfort of home. The large deck is very nice to meet the sunrise with a cup of coffee. Also there is a place for barbecue. I would recommend this house to my friends.
