About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath cabin in the woods

The cabin is tucked away in a quiet little development between the historic town of Jim Thorpe and Big Boulder ski resort. Surrounded by lush rhododendron on a wooded lot, the property offers a sense of seclusion without sacrificing the security that comes with being in a community. It is a quiet and peaceful place to relax and enjoy nature.

The interior of the house is newly renovated. The main living area consists of a combined living room and kitchen with a vaulted ceiling open to a 2nd floor loft. The kitchen is well equipped, the living room is comfortable and has a cozy gas fireplace. The loft is a family room with cable TV, DVD player, books, and board games.

Outside you can relax on the deck or hang out at the fire pit. There is a gas grille and table with chairs for outside dining.

There is no shortage of things to do in the Poconos. Below is a list of some area attractions.

- Close to the quaint historic town of Jim Thorpe for shopping, dining, entertainment, historic tours, and scenic train ride.

- Hiking and biking trails at Hickory Run State park (home of Boulder Field), and Lehigh Gorge State Park (Glen Onoko Falls and Lehigh Gorge trail).

- White water rafting and paintball at Pocono Whitewater

- concerts at Penns Peak concert venue

- Pocono Raceway

Cozy, quiet romantic getaway

  • 5 of 5

This space is great, very comfortable and clean, beautiful fireplace, well stocked with kitchen supplies and games. It was less than two hours away from our home base in Harrisburg, and it was the perfect way to get out of the city for a weekend! The hosts were communicative and kind. Highly recommend!

Very cozy and neat!

  • 5 of 5

A nice quiet place to vacation that is far enough for peace and quiet, but close to multiple attractions. Would definitely stay here again. Owners are very nice as well.

The perfect getaway at the most beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was furnished with all the comforts of home and more and situated in an amazingly peaceful and utterly quiet locale. The owners were so eager to please in every way and made us feel so welcome in their charming cabin. We look forward to returning next summer!

Beautiful and awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

Me and my girlfriend really enjoyed our time up at the cabin. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed to relax. Wish we would of stayed much longer. We will be making another trip in the future for sure. The owners were very polite and kind and made the whole process very easy and enjoyable. The cabin is warm and very cozy. And the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful. Lots of stuff to do and enjoy!

Beautiful, secluded and perfect for a relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 3 year old son and 9 year old nephew stayed for 4 nights and had a blast! The house is perfectly sized for a small group. Also very well equipped if anything should fall off of your shopping list! The community is quiet and each house feels very secluded. The small beach and playground are perfect for a quick trip out with the little ones.

The location can't be beat. 25 mins to Jim Thorpe and Mauch Chunk Lake, 25 minutes to the indoor water park at Split Rock Resort. Plenty of restaurants nearby and water sports rentals right up the street.

We really loved it and plan on booking again next summer!
