Snowy New Years Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for a family of 6 and 2 dogs. It was very clean and inviting. We had snow all day on Saturday that really made that mountain cabin feel come alive. John and Millie had fresh eggs and pancake mix for the next morning. The fire place was an added touch for a weekend that averaged below 10 degrees. The dogs enjoyed the road back through the snowy woods and sitting by the fire when we got back. I would highly reccomend this place!

Owner's Response: Chad, we are pleased you enjoyed the place. Being located next to the Thomas Darling Preserve at Two Mile Run has so many advantages. A quiet walk to enjoy nature, a safe place for a jog or great place for snowshoeing as the weather allows, this preserve offers solace and solitude when needed. This being stated, the location also offers convenience to many of the Poconos most desired activities; skiing, The Kalahari Water Park, lakes, parks and so on. You were great guests, we appreciate how you left the home in excellent condition, very much appreciated. Consider staying again on your next visit to the Poconos. John and Millie

Cozy weekend

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, clean, rental that was toasty warm when we got there. The wind was howling outside the first night but you couldn't tell from the inside. My wife and I and our two dogs enjoyed our stay. Supplies were a short drive away but it was still a nice quiet spot. We will go back.

One of the best stays

  • 5 of 5

I cant believe how lovely we found this place arranged. First, it was very clean, clean everywhere, even in the kitchen cabinets, the floors, crispy linen and immaculate blankets. A tastefully set up table with wine glasses and breakfast provided. The little things that make your stay even better.

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 Pocono Lake

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.

Located close to Interstate 80, the PA Turnpike and Interstate 380 make the drive to this area of the Poconos less than 2 hours.

The property is located in a quiet area yet convenient to many activities. This means you can play hard, enjoy all that the Pocono area has to offer, then come back and relax in a private setting. Watch deer from the covered deck, cook some hot dogs, burgers, steaks and corn on the grille. Sit around the campfire and enjoy companionship.

Located adjacent to the property is a nature preserve for a nice, quiet walk, bird-watching or taking in nature. In the winter, snowshoe or cross country ski.
