Relaxing and Refreshing, Simple and Cozy Getaway - HideaRelaxing 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!

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 a observing rapid nature changes, meditating, hiking and biking.

In warm season it's 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 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 wild life; curious deers 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.

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 for two and the balcony that facing the creek!

First floor has two bedrooms with double beds and 2 extra cots, full bath, well equipped kitchen and a dishwashing machine. 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 Racquet Ball Courts, and even a Ski Slope with the Lift! :)

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

See below the list of all sorts of available amenities. For the seasonal info: http://sawcreek.org/amenities

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 cable we can arrange it at additional fee, simply let us know in advance.

• Basic Internet is available at no extra cost.

• Verizon Wireless has the best reception at this house.

• The dining area consists of the kitchen bar, portable folding table, coffee table and outside desk dining table with plenty of chairs and stools.

• With your health and nature in mind 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.

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

We look forward speaking with you!

Warmly,

Elena

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.

Peaceful weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

All I could say was wow as soon as I walked inside the house. This place was amazing. I wanted to buy it right away. Elena the owner kept the place looking great. Plus she stocked it with everything we needed from plates and silverware to laundry detergent. The creek in the back of the house is so beautiful. Well worth the trip. I liked it especially cause it was hidden not like most of the other homes that were right in front. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone who would like a weekend getaway with their family or just a romantic getaway.

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.

Always amazing

  • 5 of 5

I had not been there in one year and going back was the best it felt great like you never want to leave ,but I must say some people rent these home and have no respect for the owners that share these beautiful places with us . So shame on those people who violate that trust . But thank you ms. Elena .

Quiet and serene, ultimate location for nature lovers

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property over the weekend at the end of the September. The description of the listing was accurate. We had access to all of the amenities in the community and used them almost every day.

The house is cozy and clean, has a well-equipped kitchen, both gas and charcoal grills, nice deck and a swing. Location is absolutely gorgeous: you can hear the forest sounds and enjoy the calm of the creek. On our first day we saw a mother bear with three cubs crossing the creek, later in the week a deer and a flock of wild turkeys.

Elena was amazing with providing us the detailed instructions, answering all of our questions and staying in touch before the trip. While at the house we had no cellphone signal reception but I was able to get in touch with her via Viber on the house's wi-fi network :). I had an issue with a gas tank for a grill and the maintenance personnel was there within an hour with a brand new tank!

We grilled almost every day eating lunches and dinners on the deck. We spent a day hiking at the Bushkill Falls. Other days just slept in, took walks along the creek, used the gym and indoor pool at the Top of the World Complex . One of the evenings we had a small bonfire. We enjoyed DVDs with a hot cup of tea (Legally Blonde, Shooter, The River Wild). The Turkey Hill Minit Market and gas station is right outside of the Saw Creek Estates community. We shopped for groceries at the Mignosi's Super Foodtown.

Without a doubt I would recommend this property.
