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!

Amazing House In A Quiet Location In The Poconos

  • 5 of 5

The property was in amazing condition. Tom, the owner made sure everything was in top shape. The house is gorgeous and spacious. My twin daughters who are 13 loved the basement area that had a pool table and wii. We all enjoyed being in the cold outside while soaking in the 102 degree hot tub. We left with many memories and are already looking for the next opportunity to come back again soon. It was worth every penny!!!

We had a lovely week at the Chalet. Everything you would need is there and yet a town was not far away if anything was forgotten. The property was very clean and far enough away from other houses that it felt isolated. It is close to Delaware Water Gap National Recreation area that we had plenty to keep us busy. The hiking was terrific and coming back to a fireplace that was cozy and heated the home was a bonus on those cold nights. We saw deer on the property and other small wildlife. This is a gem and really, I feel as if I should keep it a secret, yet the other reviewers were not wrong in their experiences. The owner was great to deal with and we would love to come back for another stay.

Secluded, romantic, quiet, peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two Golden Retrievers had a wonderful time. Chalet was very well maintained and very inviting. Everything was as advertised or even better in our opinion.

When the TV set did not work on our first day there, the owners were extremely helpful and accommodating and got it fixed quickly.

Property is very quiet, private and romantic. Loved sitting in the spa or on the deck or and by the fireplace. Our two Goldens were in seventh heaven; loved walking in the woods off leash and of course they could not resist the pond. Plenty of room to throw the Frisbees.

Town of Milford is close by so if you can pull yourself away from the property it offers a number of interesting shops and a fantastic restaurant, the Delmonico Room at the Hotel Fauchere, that was recommended by our owner.

We would definitely recommend it and we would definitely plan on returning.

Excellent stay at fantastic property

  • 5 of 5

When we walked in we felt immediately welcome. From the small box of chocolates and welcoming card to cabinets stocked with everything we might need during our stay (right down to a garlic press!) we felt more like we were borrowing the home of a close friend. The home is warmly decorated, immaculately clean and very comfortable. My boys enjoyed playing pool and having access to the WII downstairs. Everything about the stay was excellent. We even had a nice stack of firewood, some firestarter and even matches for a nice fire one evening. There is so much to do around the area that we will definitely be visiting again and staying here!

This place was easily my favorite home away I have ever stayed in. To start things off it was as clean as anywhere i have ever stayed, hotels included. no dirt no dust no chipped paint or old furniture. Great Pool table, Great hot tub placed overlooking the pond and the pond was a constant source of ralaxtion. They say it sleeps 6 but another owner would list this as sleeping 8. spacious and well maintained. The fire pit is beautiful and the kitchen is well stocked.

this is a real gem and only 2 1/2 hours from NYC

We truly enjoyed our stay at this chalet and look forward to returning for another visit! We had extremely cold weather and snow during our stay, but that did not stop us from enjoying the fire pit, the hot tub and hiking right on the property. We even ventured out to the nearby waterfalls that were absolutely beautiful. The chalet is spaced out very well so we never felt like we were in each other’s way, yet had enough room to all hang out as well. The chalet provides a very comfortable setting to sit back, relax and enjoy family and friends. I have never been in a rental as clean as this one. The dogs LOVED running through the woods and being free!! When I think of going to the Poconos this is the type of place I imagine. And if that isn’t enough, the owners were nothing but extremely responsive and kind. They even refunded us for a day when we had to leave a little early. Thank you for providing us such a wonderful place to stay.
