About Brett Jarvis

Pocono Dream Cabins is family owned and operated. After moving to the Poconos from NYC, we soon discovered how amazingly beautiful and serene the Poconos truly are--especially considering how close we are to NYC and Philadelphia. Our cabins are approximately 1.5 hours from NYC and 2 hours from Philadelphia. We have had guests from as far away as Holland, and as close as just across the border of New Jersey. Our cabins are fully stocked with all the amenities, including towels and linens.

Brett Jarvis purchased this house in 2003

Car: necessary

There is a huge area of public land, lakes, ponds, wetlands, and forest surrounding the property. Nearby you'll find the Mountain Laurel Center with concerts and events, Pecks Pond, where you can see Bald Eagles, rent boats and fish, or eat at the historic Pecks Pond Inn. Lake Wallenpaupack, the third largest body of water in PA, is 20 minutes away. High Knob, one of the highest mountains in the Poconos, is just a few minutes away. Numerous ski areas, golf courses, paintball, boating, hiking, ATV and Snowmobile trails, waterfalls, and more are all in the nearby area. Milford, Stroudsburg, Matamoras, and Hawley are all about 20-30 minutes away. This property is located centrally in the Poconos so you are within a reasonable drive of almost all of the attractions. What is most unique about this property is that it is not in a gated community, unlike most Pocono vacation rentals, so you can enjoy real seclusion while still being close to civilization.

As for skiing, the great thing about this location is that you are right in the middle of most of the Pocono ski areas. We get a lot of skiers who want to visit a different area every day. Tanglewood is only 12 miles away, about a 20 minute drive. You are also within 30 miles of Shawnee, Camelback, Mountain Creek, Big Bear, Alpine Mountain, Fernwood, and even Sno Mountain in Scranton is not out of reach.

Love this place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Over the past few years I have stayed at this retreat many times. The first few times were with friends for our annual "man weekends" but this time I took my entire family. Every time I stay there it is clean, well stocked with essentials, and well maintained. The kids loved the ping pong and foosball tables and we all love the giant fire pit. The owner is super responsive and always great to work with. My wife is always very concerned about how clean things are and even she was happy with how clean this place is. I fully recommend this property and this owner. THANKS BRETT!

Great for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, great house. We had a really fun weekend hanging around the house and firepit, and finding some hikes nearby. Would definitely recommend for anyone looking for a quiet spot in the woods to spend time with family and/or friends.

Exactly what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

The house was deep into the woods with an accommodating outdoor space. The bedrooms and rec room comfortably slept our entire group. Everything was clean, well organized, and labeled. The internet wasn't great, but I suppose that's the whole point of staying away from the city in the first place. Overall a great location!
