About Ricky Cortez

Hello, my name is Ricky and I’m a designer from NJ.

I grew up in upstate NY, lived in NYC for 15 years then moved to Maplewood with my family 4 years ago. We have family in the Poconos and love enjoying what every season has to offer, but in the summer we also love to travel. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do and feel like is your home away from home!

Interesting fact: I was a professional actor for a decade while performing in two Broadway National Tours and 40 + shows! To this day I can't live without singing, dancing, sailing . . . and dark chocolate!

Ricky Cortez purchased this lodge in 2017

Why Ricky Cortez chose Pocono Pines

We have been dreaming for years of owning a place of our own in the Poconos, close to our family. We waited until had the opportunity to purchase a home in the prestigious Lake Naomi community. It is touted as the "Hamptons of the Poconos" and want our children to have memories from here that will last a lifetime. I didn't go on many vacations as a child and now I get to share this beautiful home and community with my family, friends and new guests we hope will come back every year to share in all that the Poconos has to offer. We are truly blessed and hope you get the same feeling we do every time we return.

What makes this lodge unique

From the moment we saw the open floor plan, entertainment room, hot tub, stone fireplace and lake activities we fell madly in love. There is so much to do every season from skiing, golfing and waterparks, to sailing, concerts and biking or tennis. We will give you access to our Mt. Maplewood Lodge site that has year round activities listed and updated seasonally. Because we are part of the 5-star Lake Naomi Club we get to extend that benefit to you, our guests for a fraction of what most resorts charge! You'll also have the ability to purchase access to Lake Naomi's 277-acre lake with boating, fishing, (heated) outdoor pools, indoor pool & splash park, sauna, spa, indoor tennis, fitness center, large game room and activities for the entire family.

EXPERIENCE - Mt. Maplewood Lodge: Add-Ons

Please ask about our new programs! They include: Fill Your Fridge (food shopping), a Private Chef (curated meals or group cooking class), Massage Therapy (+ Spa Packages) and soon to come Yoga/Pilates/Sports Stretch classes.

* Certain PETS are allowed with prior APPROVAL of what type, age and how many. We allow for up to two (2) house-trained pets maximum, for an additional fee per pet upon approval of the owner.

** HOA quiet hours after 10pm for a serene experience. Please read rules, regulations and lease for signing.

The perfect location for our long weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a last second replacement for our snowboarding trip when we found the Maplewood Lodge. Ricky was extremely nice and was even able to accommodate us checking in early. The house was beautiful inside and out. The property reminded me of a movie set with the small bridge connecting over the creek that runs through it. Everything in the kitchen was supplied by the homeowners, which was an A+ from someone who had to cook all weekend for a large group. I cannot say enough about the comfort on the inside. As soon as I arrived I felt comfortable and at home which never happends when I travel. Thanks Ricky and I cannot wait till our next stay!

Clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our family vacation. This home was spacious enough for our family of 11. We enjoyed our stay to the fullest. The Naomi Club amenities were fantastic. This home is located near many other activities. We enjoyed river rafting, Hershey Park, rented a motorboat and did water tubing on a nearby lake. We loved the outside pool, it is in walking distance from this home. We also enjoyed the gym, inside pool, and spa.

I would highly recommend this home for a great vacation spot. Looking forward to revisiting again next yr.

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

We had a ladies’ retreat- there were 12 of us and the house fit us perfectly, and still had plenty of space, yet cozy. The host, Ricky is awesome, he responds fast and gives you exact information you need. We had an incredible experience at the house. Near many things as well.

Amazing Family time

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mt Maplewood Lodge for a few days and had an amazing time. The place is very well kept, clean, spacious but cozy and the kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. We had a lot of fun watching the deer come so close to the house and our kids were so happy to see the chipmunks on the deck.

Ricky was very accommodating to our family needs, answered all of our questions promptly and was very pleasant. We look forward to staying here again soon!

Different than expected but still a positive experience

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this home from Thursday night to Saturday morning with a large group of friends and family. The home and owner, Ricky, were both very accommodating during our stay. We came for an event Friday and unfortunately the largest snow storm of 2018 inconvenienced our trip. Over 16 inches of snow caused (area wide) power outages, road closures, and extreme cold. Throughout this negative experience our group looked on the positive side and made the most of the situation. Ricky was also very supportive. He was apologetic for something no one could help and allowed us to use as much wood as we wanted to stay warm. He also called the (contracted) plow company to make sure we could get out safely and allowed for us to have a late checkout. After everything was said and done and we were back in our own homes, I spoke to Ricky and he still felt bad for our unfortunate experience. Without me expecting or asking for any sort of compensation for our visit he offered to return a portion of our money. I wish that the trip went as planned, without the snow problems, but overall everything worked out and we were all safe. I would definitely consider returning to this home in the future.
