Why Jean and Bill chose White Haven
We purchased this property to escape to the country for the weekends and we have enjoyed every season ever since! Some of our favorite times here included family get togethers' and summer holiday fun! It is very peaceful, and provides the opportunity to fully experience nature at it's best - by the fire out back in the summer and fall, on the deck as the sun rises in the spring and summer and by the fireplace during the fall and winter.
What makes this House unique
We chose this location due to its' proximity to the PA Turnpike and I-80. Although set in a peaceful community setting, it is still close to the Jack Frost Big Boulder Ski Resorts and Camelback where you can ski, snow tube or snow board. Additionally, we are minutes from some of the great hiking trails, biking trails and White Water Rafting spots in the Pocono's.

Restful and relaxing
We wanted a quiet getaway for a respite from normal somewhat hectic life style. Holiday House had everything we needed. We took walks around the neighborhood, cooked in a kitchen with every kitchen gadget we needed, did jigsaw puzzles, played games, read books and relaxed in recliners while watching TV. The couple of times we had questions we were able to easily contact the owners (Bill and Jean) and get answers. The house was clean, comfortable and perfect for what we were looking for. We were provided with brochures of activities available in the area. We choose to just enjoy the house and neighborhood. We hope to return.
We found the home very clean and inviting. The kitchen was well stocked and we enjoyed the fireplace when the evenings were damp and cold. We enjoyed our daily visits with the deer and sometimes they came twice in a day. We definitely would return to this home if we have plans to be in the area.
Wonderful property in a great location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Holiday House! There is plenty to do in the area and the house was perfect. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

quiet and cozy !
We (4 people) stayed at the holiday house Saturday-Monday and went skiing and big boulder/jack frost. This house was very clean and cozy. Only a short (20-25 minutes) ride from the mountain and a few breakfast/dinner places. We enjoyed our stay!
Very nice place
I want to say that everything was very nice and I recommend them to go and spend a vacation. It's very nice. I liked it a lot.
