Property: 80 Acres, creek frontage (3/4 mile), secluded, great views
The Homestead is located in the area known as Marshall's Creek, roughly 10 minutes from the Delaware Water Gap. It boats 80 acres to explore, with 3/4 miles of Marshalls Creek frontage. Additionally, it is centrally located close to many outdoor activities, including skiing, hiking, fishing, rafting/canoeing (on Delaware), and golf. It's also a short drive away from beautiful and historic downtown Stroudsburg, and only another couple miles to great shopping at The Crossings.
The home is a 3br/2ba Chalet which we purchased in 2013, and have renovated extensively to bring up to date. We have made a number of recent additions (beds, couches, tables, chairs, wi-fi, ping pong table, dart board) in order to make one's stay more comfortable. There is a wrap around deck in front with great views, as well as a screened-in porch for relaxing.
I think the rental is perfect for couples and families looking to relax and enjoy everything that the Poconos has to offer. It sleeps 6 in the bedrooms (all new queen mattresses) and has an additional single daybed on the ground floor. For larger parties, there is amble room on couches and to put down air-mattresses.
The property itself encompasses 80 acres, and is open to explore. The topography is hilly, lending itself to some fun climbing, as well as spectacular views of the valley from the higher elevations (as seen in photos). Marshall's Creek meanders along one side of the property, and is great in the summer to take a dip. The waterfall is a beautiful place to sit and relax in the spring/early summer when the creek flow is strongest. If you enjoy nature, you'll enjoy getting lost on the property.
The Homestead is close enough to NYC (1 hr drive) for a weekend getaway, and offers enough activities to easily fill a week or two. We look for renters that will enjoy and respect the home, property, and area as much as we do.
Listed rates are a good indication, but we are always happy to try and work with renters budgets. Please send us an inquiry with any questions you might have!

About Owen (Poc)
I'm from New Jersey and my wife is originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. We currently live in Jersey City, NJ.
Owen (Poc) purchased this Chalet in 2013
Why Owen (Poc) chose Middle Smithfield
We wanted a weekend/vacation escape. We decided to buy in the Poconos because we wanted to be able to really get away, while still being close to our primary residence in NJ. We settled on this property because we thought it offered a little of everything (secluded but not too in the middle of nowhere, relatively close (75min from NYC), expansive, has the creek for swimming and fishing in warmer months, and the views (both from the house and from the higher vistas in the property).
What makes this Chalet unique
Our favorite things about the property are : View from the living room and deck. Sitting on fenced in porch during spring, summer, and fall. Sitting on the couch in winter with the fireplace roaring. Walking around and getting lost on the property. Going down to Marshall's Creek and swimming or fishing. Climbing to the top of the property and taking in the view (which goes all the way to the DWG). Quick and easy drive from NYC (75-90 min)

Great clean house for our family of 5 + dog
The house was clean and beds were very comfortable. It was a 15 minute drive to Shawnee mountain for skiing and snow tubing. We played ping pong and darts at the house and there was a saloon at the bottom of Marshall creek road with good bar food, pool tables, shuffle board and darts. There are also grocery stores and liquor stores nearby. Owen was very accommodating with an early check in/late check out for our group!
Beautiful House with plenty of room to spread out!
The house is great. Centrally located to Shawnee and many great restaurants. The house is on a large private property. Very quiet and peaceful. Owen makes sure you have everything you need. The house is very warm and cozy with a great heating system, especially since we were staying in sub freezing temperatures. Bedrooms are comfortable and the ping pong table was a nice touch. Definitely would stay there again.
Wooded peaceful spacious
Great setting. So quiet, surrounded by trees and trails. Loved our brief stay and would definitely return. Two distinct living spaces so can separate adults from teens or kids. Ping pong & darts. Very, very comfortable beds. Fully equipped kitchen. Lovely screened in porch for warmer months and also cool fire pit. Cozy main living room with giant comfortable couch, large tv, and wrap around deck. Highly recommend.
Very quiet and relax
Thank you Owen.

Quiet and Beautiful Home
Owen made it really easy to get in touch. This was our second stay in the last six months. We plan on staying again in the future
Amazing property with great amenities! Family friendly!
We can't thank Owen enough for our stay at this very cute property. We are a large family and had plenty of room to spread out. There were lots of fun things to do at the property and around the area. We hope to be back many more times to this very wonderful place! Owen was very accomodating and responded to all my emails and gave lots of detail prior to our trip. Access to the house is very easy and the views are gorgeous! We HIGHLY recommend this property to others!
Thank you very much Danielle. We are glad you had a nice stay, and look forward to welcoming you back next year!
