About the property

Blakeslee, Pennsylvania

Nestled in Brier Crest Woods, this peaceful Blakeslee house offers a secluded location, yet is still near plenty of action! You'll be perfectly primed to explore the local outdoor recreational activities, hiking trails, casinos, the Scranton shopping area, Pens Peak for concerts, and the quaint town of Jim Thorpe! The tranquility of this wonderful 5-bedroom, 2-bathroom home which sleeps 10 will have you coming back year after year.


This roomy 5-bedroom, 2-bathroom house has enough space to comfortably accommodate up to 10 guests, making it an ideal choice for a large family or group of close friends looking to escape the stresses of everyday life and retreat to the scenic woods of Pennsylvania. As soon as you enter this gorgeous home, you'll simply fall in love with its many inviting features, such as soaring cathedral ceilings in the expansive living room, beautiful tiled floors, cozy fireplace in the parlor, comfortable furnishings, and huge sliding glass doors that open directly to the private wraparound deck out back, bringing the outdoors in. The residence also comes complete with everything you need to feel right at home, including central air conditioning, wireless internet access, and an in-unit washer and dryer for your laundry needs.

After a long day on the nearby lake, look forward to coming home to prepare a delicious dinner in one of the home's 2 fully equipped kitchens, one on each floor. When the weather's nice, utilize the property's gas grill out on the spacious front deck. Once dinner is ready, you'll have multiple dining areas to choose from - the upstairs dining table offers stunning views of the surroundings, or you can choose to immerse yourself in these picturesque surroundings by eating outside on one of the 2 decks. Later, gather by the cozy wood burning fireplace in the parlor to watch your favorite shows on the large flat screen TV, equipped with cable and DVD player. When you're ready to call it a night, you'll be happy to retreat to any of the home's 5 comfortable bedrooms to rest up for the next eventful day.


Perhaps the best feature of this property is its fantastic location, situated within the pristine Brier Crest Woods community! From one of the home's private decks, you can scope out deer, wild turkey, and other local wildlife in the surrounding woods. For the outdoor enthusiasts in your group, Lake Harmony is located only about a mile from the house within the development, offering terrific hiking options, a fishing area, and playground for the kids. If you'd like to spend the day wandering through town and exploring quaint shops, head over to Jim Thorpe, located just 13 miles away.

Other popular activities close by include skiing at Jack Frost or Split Rock just 3 to 5 miles from the house, golfing at Big Boulder, exploring the nearby water park, and shopping at the outlets, which are located 15 to 20 minutes away. Another area favorite is wine tasting at one of the many nearby wineries; Cherry Valley Vineyards, Bartolai Winery, Preate Winery, Franklin Hill Vineyards, and Glen Galen Vineyards & Winery are all situated approximately within a 20 to 25-minute drive from the property. You'll certainly find plenty of activities in the beautiful Pocono region to keep you busy during your trip, but don't forget to kick back and enjoy the serenity of this delightful Blakeslee vacation rental home!

Nice property great owners-small living area for a 5 BR

  • 3 of 5

The place is decent and well maintained however is on the older side and the living room area is pretty small to accommodate 10 people. The owner is very easy to reach out to and we honestly had no issues. There was a nice little hill in the back for the kids to practice sledding on. I just felt like we were on top of each other.

The house overall was not bad. It was an old house but very clean. It smelled like dog pee when I arrived downstairs which was disgusting. Other than that, it was not bad at all.

Poconos trip was amazing.

  • 5 of 5

This place is exactly how it is in the picture. The owner did an excellent job of keeping the place clean and comfortable in order to satisfy my people and as well as myself. Everything was updated and lights were amazing. The heater and air conditioning was good. The surrounding was amazing and I would recommend anyone going there. The environment is so quiet and designated for friends and family to come out and enjoy themselves. Thank you Lee Ann for all your help and for being so courageous about everything.
