Bushkill House Rental Photos and Description

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

Our sister property, Chalet in the Trees is fully renovated and now available! Homeaway # 4258279

One of the most desirable locations in all of the Poconos. This one of a kind vacation retreat is located on the Saw Creek ski hill in beautiful Bushkill, PA. This contemporary castle is a Myron H. 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, Chalet in the Trees, that is nearby and 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.

My group and I had a great time! Ive rented many homes in Pennsylvania but this one was most special. It's unique castle like shape was breathtaking, it stood out from all other homes in the community. Beds were comfortable, beautiful kitchen, and everything was clean. The owner Kathleen was a pleasure, thank you for making our weekend special.

great house!!

  • 4 of 5

we had a great time at this beautiful house. It came well equipped, clean, lots of linens, loved having the comforts of come (TV, wi-fi, AC, oven, dishwasher, etc) while being in the woods.

We are looking forward to coming back in the winter months as well as sharing the location with other family members.

The owners were quick to respond, easy to work with and left us a big bottle of Chianti with delicious chocolates...we will definitely return

p.s...I only gave 4 stars because the surrounding area is a little bit rundown...

Owner's Response: Brandi, Thank you so much for your kind words and we do hope to have you back over the winter. Our location on the ski hill makes for a great winter stay. I must apologize to you however for the road leading to our home! I was unaware until after your stay that the water company was installing new water lines along the road and was using our beautiful, peaceful cul-de-sac as a staging area for their equipment. The water company has assured us that the road will be restored to its pre-construction condition. Please be assured that we will do everything we can to make your next stay more enjoyable. Kindest regards, Kathleen
