Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6)

Overlooking a tranquil pond and stream, the two-story bank of windows and deck in the front of this house make you feel as if you are living in a tree house in the forest. It's truly a tranquil escape from every day life.

Two downstairs bedrooms share a bath. The upstairs loft bedroom has its own bath. The living area on the first floor includes a convenient gas fireplace, flat-screen television with cable and DVD player, a kitchen with an island and dining area. The basement game room has a TV/DVD player, pool table, boardgames, and a Wii. It makes a great playroom. The house includes a hot tub and is equipped with free wi-fi.

This newer construction gives you all the comforts of home but all the quiet and beauty of nature. Sitting on the deck, you can enjoy the sound of the stream flowing past and the panorama of the pond, hemlocks and white pine trees. The area abounds with wildlife and breathtaking foliage in the fall, amazing snowy landscapes in the winter, and lush greenery in the spring and summer. This cozy house sits on seven acres for a secluded atmosphere, a real sense of getting away from the noise and bustle of civilization.

The Benefits at this Chalet: This house is walking distance to Childs Park and a short drive to the 70,000 acre Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area. Hike from house to Dingmans Falls and Childs Park waterfalls. Near to Raymondskill and Bushkill Falls too! Only a few miles from the Delaware River, which features canoeing, kayaking, tubing, and of course, great fishing. The 32-mile McDade trail follows the river and is perfect for biking, hiking and cross-country skiing. The nearby town of Milford, PA features fine restaurants, galleries, and antiquing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just returned from a wonderful week in this log chalet. Everything about the home was wonderful. Such a peaceful setting, it was easy to forget about our busy lives and just relax. Everyone agreed we would love to stay here again. We all enjoyed the hot tub too. Our dog thought we chose this home just for him since he was in swimming at the pond everyday. We also enjoyed having campfires in the evenings. All in all - the perfect week!

EXCEEDED EXPECTATION Responsive Owner, Gorgeous Property, Excellently Maintained Home

  • 5 of 5

I took my family to the Chalet last week and we had an absolutely extraordinary time. My father took my toddler fishing on the private pond. She thought the waterfall was the COOLEST THING EVER. We all loved the fire pit (we used a LOT more firewood than provided, because we lit a fire every night!) and the hot tub.

The pictures are VERY true to the home. It is really that clean, bright, and beautiful. Tom was very responsive in the week leading up to our stay, and since there were no issues (or even questions, as there is excellent, unobtrusive signage throughout the property) he barely heard from us once onsite.

The guide to local attractions inspired us to take multiple hikes, try out a local lake and Milford Beach (too cold in June), stroll through downtown Milford, and check out some great local restaurants. We had one rainy day during which we dug into the chalet's impressive stash of films, games, and puzzles. We were NEVER bored and we ALL want to go back! (Actually, Tom, my Dad may try to buy the property from you! LOL)

For those who are looking for an appropriate place for a multi-generational vacation, I strongly recommend the Chalet. My father is on oxygen and has trouble with stairs. We had some concerns going in that he would find breathing difficult on more humid days or would be limited in activities he could take part in. We needn't have worried. There are strong AC units in every bedroom and in the large family space on the main level. There are four steps to access the house, but once on the main level, you have access to a full bath, two bedrooms, living room (with pull-out couch), kitchen, dining area, and deck with grill, seating, and hot tub. Even the path out to the pond, though natural, was well-trekked and free of major trip hazards, so that he was comfortable walking out there.

The Chalet was an incredible find and we are already looking to get back! Thank you, Tom and Therisa!

Perfect Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

This secluded cabin is the perfect home to get away for a few days. The house is beautifully done and the owner Tom does a great to accommodate you in anyway. The house sits on a great property with a small pond, fire pit, and best of all is a short hike away from some gorgeous waterfalls. There is plenty to explore in the and do if you have an active family. And it is also a perfect place to just relax and get away from the world. I could not have been more happy with my stay and would definitely recommend staying at this beautiful cabin.
