About Cindy & Paul

We love traveling and spending time with family; doing anything together. Even the supermarket can be an adventure!

"Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why"

Cindy & Paul purchased this chalet in 2016

Why Cindy & Paul chose Bushkill

When we bought this property, we had a vision to build a fun and relaxing destination! Saw Creek Estates is considered one of the largest, private residential subdivisions in the Pocono Mountain region. It's a beautiful gated community surrounded by a rugged mountain environment that has so much to offer!

What makes this chalet unique

The backyard has a great view! The property is built on a mountain crest providing a rugged mountain environment. It also creates privacy for your group.

Amazing weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 15 people and everyone enjoyed the house! It was very spacious and well stocked with cooking materials and extra blankets. Everything was very clean. The photos don’t do the justice! We took advantage of the sauna and hot tub at the community pool and Shawnee was only 20 minutes away. Cindy was very accommodating and answered all my questions quickly and thoroughly. We would all definitely stay here again. Thanks for everything!

Wonderful property and amenities

  • 5 of 5

House is large, comfortable, and warm. We had 12 adults plus 4 children and everyone had a bed with a few extra left. Gas fireplace downstairs keeps the room very warm, and we had the fireplace upstairs going nearly the whole time. Kitchen size was ample for all of the meals we cooked for the large group. Cindy was also very accommodating when I needed last minute changes as well. Would recommend and would stay again!

Great trip!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was overall very great. It's a beautiful house, very clean, and the owner responds very quick to every message. There are smart TVs in every room which made things very easy with the kids.

One point of caution - make sure all trash is moved to the trash compactor instead of just left outside or else there will be a charge.

Owner's Response: Hi Hannah Thanks for your positive review! We are so happy that we met your expectations. Unfortunately any garbage just left outside the house and not thrown out in the trash compactor will be brought by the cleaners on your behalf and they charge me for this.

Holmes Family Poconos Thanksgivings 2017

  • 5 of 5

We traveled from North Jersey to have a Thanksgivings away from the city. We stayed for 4 days and enjoyed every minute of it. The house was very spacious and comfortable for our group of 20. There is room in the house for the different age groups to break off and have their own space. Perfect for families traveling with parents, kids, friends, cousins etc... We enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back in the summer months. I would highly recommend Sweet Escape. The owner Cindy was available no matter what day or time we reached out she was always available by phone, text, or email even on Thanksgivings Day we appreciated that.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for my vacation with friends. There were about 10-15 of us and there was plenty of room for all of us. We absolutely loved everything about it. I highly recommend vacationers to stay there. The owner was extremely helpful with all the questions we had.
