About the property

3 Bedrooms, Each With Full Bath, Loft And Rec Rm, Accommodating 12-14

********It's time to plan for SKI SEASON********

What's better than crisp cold days on the slopes followed by evenings fireside with friends or family?

Welcome to our home, Sunset Ridge. Eclectic charm where you can do everything or nothing at all. A living room with a fireplace and 55” TV, three bedrooms, each with a full bathroom; library loft, rec room with a wood burning stove and 50” TV, plus an outdoor fire pit and a 4-season room affectionately called the Tree House, and you’ll quickly see why. The house is located literally on a ridge that provides the house with wonderful cross breezes. The large ceiling fans add to the cooling and rarely does anyone wish for more. Our fully-equipped kitchen includes a table that can opened up to accommodate 10 comfortably. Holiday and family dinners await you.

Sunset Ridge boasts a westward view with magnificent sunsets in the well-appointed community of Saw Creek Estates. At Saw Creek, you have access to four outdoor swimming pools, two indoor pools, two kiddie pools, three whirlpool spas, nine tennis courts, two basketball courts, a beach, a fishing pond, a walking trail, a racquetball court, a fitness center with a weight room, a volleyball court, two playgrounds (for ages 12-and-under), an after-school game room that offers children’s arts & crafts programs throughout the summer months, and a regulation-sized baseball field. In the winter, Saw Creek offers its own family friendly ski lift complete with lessons and ski rentals. For those less adventurous, there's also a sleigh riding slope for old fashioned sledding fun.

We will provide you with 6 Amenity Wrist Badge ($150 value) which must be returned at check out. Un-returned badges will be deducted from the security deposit. Additional badges are available at the the Member Services Building located next to the VIP Pool/Pond on Decker Road (Closed Sundays & Mondays). The cost is $5.00 per person, per day. Weekly cost is $20 per person . Saw Creek Lift Tickets are an additional $20 per person, per day. Amenity Badge also Required.

Saw Creek boasts the on-site Top of the World Restaurant (no amenity badge required), less than 5 minutes away from Sunset Ridge. At the TOW summer fun expands with the poolside Tiki Bar and snack bar.

Fun doesn’t stop at our gates. In 20 minutes, you can find yourself at Shawnee Ski Resort (see live web cam link after Amenities), or beautiful Bushkill Falls. We’re close to ziplining, horseback riding, kayaking on the Delaware, Smithfield Beach on the Delaware, hiking and biking the McDade Trail, shopping, restaurants and four golf courses, within ten miles. Take a day trip to the Tannersville Premium Outlets and shop till you drop. Or how about a day trip with the kids to the Kalahari Water Park. There is something new to do every day or you can simply curl up with a good book.

Sunset Ridge is Pocono living at its best. John and Dawn look forward to welcoming you.

About John & Dawn Barbera

We met in 2006 on Match.Com after both having gotten our practice marriages out of the way. One year and 10 days later, we were married and the rest is history. Love, respect, and friendship keeps us going strong still today. Every day brings new joys that, together, we accept with gratitude. As for challenges, we face them head on as a team. We hope we can be an example to all who hope to achieve a life of happiness as we have.

John & Dawn Barbera purchased this house in 2015

Why John & Dawn Barbera chose Bushkill

We vacationed in nearby Marshall's Creek as youngsters and have very fond memories of sharing fun times together with family and friends. A dream has been to recreate those times as grownups and are now making this dream a reality. One evening's sunset here and we were hooked.

What makes this house unique

The sunsets are magnificent from both the "Tree House" 4 seasons room and the lower rec room deck.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello everyone!!! I thought this would be another good place to make a notation regarding linens. While we do still provide all the bath towels you'll need, we are now using a linen service to provide sheets in the spring, summer, and fall months (not provided during winter). If you need to use of the linen service, just let me know and I'll provide you with the fees. Thanks so much for your understanding!

Memories that will last a lifetime

  • 5 of 5

Dawn was incredibly sweet and helpful while planning a week long trip with busy college kids!! She was always available to answer any dopey question we had haha

We came from the beach to the mountains and wasn't sure how we would like it but Sunset Ridge exceeded our expectations!!

The home was big enough for everyone to have space or be together around the table for meals (my favorite part was the big kitchen living room area so we could cook together and still be together) or watching movies in the living room! The home was clean and had fresh sheets wrapped so pretty on each bed (my 18yr old thought that was the sweetest thing!!)

We hiked the falls (10min away), shopped at the beautiful outlets (about 20min) even went to the Christmas Store very close too!! It was fun exploring different locations then coming home and relaxing by the Top of The World gorgeous pool with snackstand and Tiki Bar!! Every day there was something to do if we chose to (even run to Wawa for sandwich or Turkey Hill for ice cream!!) so close to everything but in a peaceful stunning setting with amazing sunsets!!

We talked all the way home about coming back during fall or winter breaks so we can sit by the fireplace, maybe watch the snow fall and enjoy the scenery or hit the slopes!!

Thank you Dawn - in addition to a new getaway spot I think we made a new friend too!!

Perfect Home For a Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family vacation. With 8 kids and 4 adults, there was plenty of space. The house was very neat and clean and the warm decor truly made it feel like a home away from home. We enjoyed the backyard view, grilling on the deck and most especially making s'mores by the fire pit. The location was perfect with nearby attractions such as Bushkill Falls or TreeVentures. The owners are so pleasant making the whole rental process so easy. We'd love to come back here again!

Sunset Ridge is an absolute beautiful home. It's quaintly located in the best spot for sunrises and sunsets. It fit all 12 of us perfectly. The home had such a warm feeling. It was very clean and the owners allowed us to check in early. Thanks again we can't wait to go back again next year!
