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

Very clean, felt cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The house felt very cozy and we loved having the fireplace and the hot tub. My son had a great time sledding out front. The home was very clean and I was sure to leave it the same. You can tell they really take care of their vacation home.

Perfect!

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at this property for a holiday getaway. The house was perfect. We had plenty of linens, the kitchen was well stocked, plenty of wood for stove, hot tub was great, plenty of games, tv's etc.

It snowed a lot and the driveway was plowed pretty quickly.

Private retreat

  • 5 of 5

Brett's property in Dingman's Ferry is beautiful, private, clean and quiet. Brett is wonderful and responsive. This was my second time to his properties in PA, and I would highly recommend it as a quiet getaway.

The property was well kept, clean and everything in working order.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our Mon-Fri stay with our 2 dogs without any problems. First day we saw bear cubs climbing the trees close to the driveway of the house. Walked down the driveway for a better look and noticed mom starring at me from the ground maybe 30 yards away. They came back and walked around the property every day and even peeked in the front door which was a big highlight. They were not threatening and we got loads of closeup shots from inside. The tree house room in the back of the house was very cool. At night, the trees are illuminated from the sister house lights. Very pretty picture and when lying in bed you feel like you are sleeping up in the trees. The only difficulty we had was trying to find our hiking trails when the GPS would not accept any addresses for the area. We stopped for directions and storekeepers were very accommodating with maps. We cooked every night and the kitchen provided everything necessary. The hot tub was wonderful in the evening after so much walking and the house turned out to be a great choice for our little group.

Map

Nearest Airport
70 Miles
Newark, NJ (EWR)
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.
