About Felicia Pennisi

We are from Long Island, and have been coming up to Saw Creek Estates since we were teen agers. Skiing is what first drew us here years ago, but we have grown to love all that is the Pocono's. Relaxing, gambling, swimming, skiing, hiking, rafting, we have done it all. It's great to get away from the noise and traffic we have become accustom to and just hear the sounds of waterfalls and songbirds. It is our hope that when you visit our home, you too will fall in love with it, and return again and again.

Felicia Pennisi purchased this house in 2011

Why Felicia Pennisi chose Bushkill

This home was passed to us through a family member a few years back, but, we have been visiting it since it was built in 1983. We feel blessed that we can now call it OUR home. Sharing with others the beauty and comfort of this mountainside home is what we want to do. Family is important, and we have many, many memories of our own families, growing up at this great vacation spot. We hope you can experience some fond memories of this Pocono Heaven.

What makes this house unique

The Chalet style widows make the view outstanding from the loft and living areas alike. This is what We always loved about this house, and it is what makes it feel so cozy when the fire roars and you see the snow covered valley below. Or, in spring, when all the trees bloom and you relax with a drink on the front porch. Truly a great spot and located very close to the restaurant and pool.

Really liked the house. Everything was nice and neat and the rooms were clean. The main floor was great with open space and windows. The owner was great in communication and helpful. Will defensively consider renting again.

Quiet, calm and spacious.

  • 3 of 5

Stayed 2 nights at this lovely home. Very spacious, high ceilings, quiet and calm area. The kitchen had everything you need, microwave, knives, utensils, pots and pans, fridge etc... There's 3 bedrooms, 2 on the 2nd floor with no AC, 1 on the 3rd floor with AC. Although the 3rd floor bedroom has 2 extra cushions they are not too comfortable to sleep on. The 1st floor which is the entrance has a sofabed, unfortunately we were not able to use it because the bathroom on that floor was flooded and a lot of water came out, very bad smell no one was able to sleep there. The next day the whole house smelled like sewer dirty water, but the owners were very helpful and fixed the problem right away.

Heads up! you have to go up and down a bunch of stairs all the time, so if you have seniors with you becareful. Inside, the stairs are covered with carpet and can be a little slippery when walking down. Also, do not get there late at night because you wont find the house, it's very dark and the numbers are not very visible and the gps stops at the wrong house. You have to keep going forward and towards the left, Maybe in the future you could put a light near the house number, i think it would help. The area is beautiful, very quiet nice pools, the scenic drive is breathtaking. If you are a loud group do not come to this house, like i said this is a nice and quiet relaxing spot. Thank you to the owner for being super nice to us and very helpful with everything.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, when you have a rental home you have lots of guests and maintenance people coming in and out. Sometimes people touch things that they shouldn't . In this instance "someone" turned the injector pump waste valve to the off position. This won't happen again as we will be locking the door to these controls. This is a great home, quiet and well equipped. I extended the renters stay in an effort to make up for the inconvenience. She was satisfied. I had a plumber there at 7am to fix the problem, as I never neglect any problems or concerns of my renters. So, come stay up in the mountains for a peaceful rest or swim and hike! This wonderful home is waiting for you!
