About John and Millie Holahan

I am a local home builder and remodeling contractor who, with my wife Millie, has renovated several properties into country retreats.

John and Millie Holahan purchased this house in 2011

Why John and Millie Holahan chose Poconos

We decided to renovate this property because it is so close to activities yet tucked away in a quiet setting. This single story rancher has country charm and gives one that easy feeling.

What makes this house unique

The property is located 9 miles from Kalahari Resorts indoor water park. This water park is being promoted that it will be among the largest water parks in North America. Grand opening is scheduled for Spring of 2015.

In addition, Camelback Ski area is also opening a large indoor water park Spring of 2015. Located just 25 minutes from the property, this adventure park will have many activities from which to choose.

For those who want to enjoy outdoor activities, there a several ski mountains, golf courses, a rails-to-trails bike path along the Lehigh River, white water rafting, the Hickory Run State park and so much more.

The perfect little vacation

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in mid January for an escape to the woods and the local mountains for skiing. This cozy little place had it all! Great working kitchen, very warm fireplace, and the bedding was more than great for our group of 6. We had a very pleasant time. Would totally do it again, and recommend.

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thanks to John and Millie we had the perfect weekend in the Poconos. There were six adults and we fit perfectly into the cute and clean cabin! We enjoyed an afternoon walk along Lake Pocono and really enjoyed cozying up to the outdoor and indoor fires in the evenings. Would definitely stay again. Thanks again!

More than perfect

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my and friends family. The location, access, cleanness, equipment and owner, everything was perfect! I am sure we could not expect more. John's response was very quick. The house was so beautiful. As other traveler reviewed, the photos on websites are usually better than actual, but this house was more beautiful than the photos, it was amazing. Very quiet area, but convenient access from I-80. I definitely recommend this house and come back in the future.

Perfect place for us to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better, more convenient place to stay during our family reunion weekend. We all agreed that it felt warm and welcoming, and like home. We had children and our dog with us and we could all relax in the quiet, private setting. I definitely recommend this cottage for a nice family getaway.

Perfect cottage to relax and unwind

  • 5 of 5

What a cute and relaxing place! I was there for July 4th weekend with my husband, 2 friends and an English bulldog. John was amazingly responsive with emails and texts. I must admit i bothered him a lot with questions :-) When we got there, Donna, the property manager stopped by to welcome us. She is a sweetheart and was very very nice, The cottage itself is beautiful, cozy and very clean. We greatly enjoyed our stay and cannot wait to go back soon. Thanks John and Donna, you guys are amazing
