About the property

Unique, beautiful, clean home in Saw Creek w/linens and most amenities included

Goldfinger design home nestled among Hemlock trees overlooking a ski hill and walking distance to restaurant, pools and sports complex.

Why waste time loading the kids and gear in the car when you could be spending the time on the slopes or in the pool? During the summer months choose from enjoying time spent poolside indoors or outdoors. During the winter enjoy a great family mountain with on-site ski rentals and indoor amenities for apres ski. Watch the kids snowboarding from either the upper or lower decks. Enjoy your ski mountain views from both master bedrooms and the spacious decks.

Our professionally decorated home boasts four bedrooms and three full baths. This spacious vacation home has three levels nestled among the native Pine and Hemlock evergreen trees.

We are located on a quiet cul-de-sac in very short walking distance to the outstanding Saw Creek amenities including Top of the World restaurant where you will enjoy dining along with memorable sunsets and mountain views. The sports bar at Top of the World offers many flat screens for the sports enthusiasts and the complex offers indoor/outdoor pools, tiki bar, snack bar, fitness center, indoor tennis and basketball courts.

Also nearby is the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area offering hiking, river beaches, kayaking and canoeing. Bushkill Falls touted as the Niagara of Pennsylvania is a quick 10 minute trip. Nearby Fernwood Resort offers Tree Adventures, an outdoor climbing challenge for the meek to the adventurer. There are 4 golf courses within 5-15 minutes including a Jack Nicklaus course at Great Bear and the legendary Shawnee Golf Course and Delaware Water Gap Country Club.

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 Poconos

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.

Great Location, very clean and wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

From the start, the home was easy to book because the owner was very quick at answering all of my questions and extremely accommodating to all of my requests. The home is literally steps from the ski mountain and well stocked with linens for all baths, bedrooms and kitchen. The home was big enough to comfortably fit 7 adults and 7 kids (7-18yrs). It was a wonderful home with amazing owners who continue to exceed my expectations. Anyone who stays here in the future will have a wonderful experience.

Beautiful, slopeside, get-a-way in the Poconos!

  • 5 of 5

Three families stayed at the Castle-in-the-Trees and had a wonderful time. The location was perfect and the views from the place were stunning. The owners were responsive and very attentive and caring. The place was roomy and clean and provided enough space for 6 adults and 6 children to hang out and play. The skiing was super-fun and it was really a treat to be able to ski in and out of the yard! We highly recommend this property!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Everything that is mentioned in the listing is exactly what the house is. It has a ski slope as the backyard, all the bedrooms are so clean, warm, renovated and cozy. The bathrooms are great. The fireplace was super useful, as were all the appliances in the kitchen.

We did not have to bring anything besides our clothes, and there was enough room for just 13 people :) I would highly recommend the castle in the tree's and would love to come back sometime again!

Had a great weekend.

  • 5 of 5

There were eight of us. We were all adults. There was enough room for all of us. We were very comfortable. We went hiking at Bushkill Falls which was about 10 minutes away and had a great time. The house was clean and nicely furnished. The only issue we had were the guards coming into the community gave everyone a hard time.

Owner's Response: Yazmin, Glad that you all were comfortable and enjoyed your stay! We are fortunate to be so close to Bushkill Falls and the many other water falls in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Sorry that some of your guests were delayed at the gate, they do require that they have the driver names in advance and are pretty picky about that. If you return to the Poconos I hope you decide to stay at our home again. Wishing you a wonderful holiday season! Kindest regards, Kathleen
