Moved to the POCONO'S in 1994 from Northern NJ .As an outdoor enthusiast, I enjoy Nature, Fishing, Hiking, Biking and Spring Turkey Hunting. There is a 25,000 acre State Gameland across the street, 2 State Parks within 7-12 mlles and of course the 83,000 acre Delaware State Forest in case sprawl is getting you down in your neighborhood! I enjoy the changing of the seasons, Skiing and snowmobiling and snowshoeing! There is the Casino, the Outlets, Riding Stables, Fish Hatcheries, Nite Spots,local taverns, NASCAR, the

Lake, The Beach and the Pool. The best of all is probably the Starlit Night Sky on any night outside of a full moon!

A Wonderful Lakehouse Experience

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful Lakehouse! Quiet, secluded, very cozy and comfortable. We had access to 2 row boats and a canoe for the week. The children had so much fun catching fish! The yard, the fire pit, the huge covered deck. Nature everywhere: mother deer and her 2 babies were a beauty to watch out in the yard. Chris was just wonderful! He stopped by and gave the children fishing lures specific to the fish in the lake: small mouthed bass, large mouth bass, pickerel. He also brought extra fire wood just to be sure we had enough for the week. Above and beyond. My family had a most wonderful time and made memories to last a lifetime. I highly recommend.

Serene home, extended check out too!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved our stay in this beautiful home and location. Chris was a gentleman throughout the whole trip. He made the trip easy and comfortable. It rained most of our trip and Chris kindly extended our check out to 6 pm! This was great as the last day the sun finally came out. He provided many essentials including logs for a campfire, two grills (one which was gas with propane included), even bug repellant which we forgot to pack! This removed a lot of stress from us. The grill on the terrace uses propane so grilling was easy.

We loved the proximity to the lake. There were a canoe and 2 row boats available to use. It was great fun. My parents had a wonderful time in the lake and kept expressing their happiness. The lake is clear and for the most part shallow. There is free access to other facilities including communal pool, beach, tennis court, mini golf, and paddle boats. My family enjoyed it all. It was a wonderful trip overall and would love to return again.

Thank you Chris for everything!

We really enjoyed our time at the cabin. We would definitely do this again.

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at the cabin. It was very peaceful. The lake was great. Our girls took took out a paddle boat and we took the canoe and the rowboat out fishing. We had nightly fires. The deer came to visit as well as lots of birds. We ventured out to Sugar Mountain Stable in Bushkill after a day exploring the Delaware Water Gap and had a great time. Chris was very helpful and quick to respond!

Nice Weekend Getaway

Nice little cabin in a gated neighborhood. About 20 minutes to Camelback. As advertised with inclusions. Only wish the fireplace was functioning. Would go back.
