Outstanding property - HIGHLY Recommended

  • 5 of 5

You have a lovely home and we were very happy. The kids can’t wait to go back next year. Wish the ski hill would have been open as it would be fantastic to simply walk out of one of the bed rooms directly onto the ski slope. However weather didn’t cooperate, so Shawnee was just as fun. We had 4 adults and 4 teenagers and nice to see the kids hanging out and actually talking with each other by the fireplace (No X-box’s, No PS4’s, no electronics .. just talking). Everything in your control went smoothly, your home is fantastic and came as advertised. WiFi in your home was easy to access and much appreciated as there’s no connectivity anywhere in the mountains. Thanks again, I would highly recommend this house to anyone who wants to get away.

Wonderful stay over the holidays

  • 5 of 5

We visited this property over the thanksgiving period and had such an enjoyable experience. Ample kitchen space to cook a large feast for 8, with all the necessary kitchen utensils provided. Set up suited our group as we lazed around the fireplace whilst watching Netflix’s all day. The house is well kept (as per pictures) and located in a secluded area. Gym is only a 5min walk which was very convenient and location wise it wasn’t too far from hiking trails (we did tumbling waters trail) or the supermarkets - both approx 20min drive. Kathleen was such an attentive and welcoming host who immediately responded to any questions (even on thanksgiving!). She even provided us with chocolates and wine on arrival which was so thoughtful. Thanks for having us, would highly recommend :)

About The Farrelly Family

This home was purchased in 2010 as a fixer upper by a few family members who saw the potential of this grand home. Their vision has finally been realized and would love to share it with you and your family during your next vacation.

If your vacation is a large gathering or perhaps family reunion we have a sister property on the same street, Lodge in the Trees and nearby Chalet in the Trees, that are also recently renovated.

The Farrelly Family purchased this house in 2010

Why The Farrelly Family chose Bushkill

The home is an architectural masterpiece that has a cozy feel. The architect, Myron Goldfinger built many spectacular homes, notably in Long Island. This home has the most desirable location in the community, just walking distance to indoor/outdoor swimming, tennis, fitness center, bar/restaurant and winter family friendly ski hill. Our location has everything you need to make a memorable vacation.

What makes this house unique

The house is very large, its round facade gives it a castle look with a grand bridge leading to the front entrance. Once inside, all the modern amenities will make you feel right at home. There are two decks perfect for entertaining, and a fireplace perfect for cold nights. It is one of only a handful of homes in the Poconos that are ski side although privacy is not sacrificed by being on the ski mountain. The 4 bedrooms and 3 baths can accommodate large families, and two sleeper sofas can also provide some extra sleeping room. The large kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook a family dinner if you decide to spend a night in and relax after a long day of skiing, hiking, golfing, canoeing or shopping.
