About the property

2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, sleeps 5

Luxurious, open interior, fireplace, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, DVD nook, CD player, and wifi computer access will give you so much to do indoors, who needs to go out? But when you do there is so much more. Deer roam freely. You can watch the sky from the front porch or grill in back while you enjoy the private deck.

Saw Creek is a private, gated community with a pond for swimming or canoeing, five outdoor swimming pools and an indoor swimming pool, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a children's playground, and in the winter, a ski slope. There is a workout room, restaurant, and bar also in the complex with a great deck where you can watch the sunset as you sip the drink of your choice.

Outside the gates there is hiking in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation area, canoeing and rafting down the river, swimming in the river as well. The Fernwood Resort is nearby which has several restaurants and bumper boats for summer fun.

And so much more!

Cozy and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Overall we had a pretty good experience. The bed was super comfy (can be hard to come by!), our dogs were allowed, and last minute booking was easy! While the house was mostly well kept, the cleaning could have been a bit better and it looked like the outside could use a quick pressure washing. On our second night of grilling, the propane ran out so we had to figure out an alternative for our meal. It was suggested that we could get the tank refilled, but that didn’t seem to make sense for our one night left. Also a bit of a bummer, during a rainy day we tried to get the fireplace going and while it would light, the flame would fizzle out after several attempts. It doesn’t sound like other people had this problem though so maybe it was just a fluke!

Very cozy with a country cottage charm.

  • 5 of 5

The house is very comfortable. It has plenty of entertainment space inside. The outdoor space is small but the porch is big enough for relaxation. However, if you want to play sports or do fun activities, Saw Creek Community has lots of places for swimming and other sports and it all come free for the quests of the house. It is very close to area attractions, especially Bushkill Falls... great hiking. We had a great time.

Very relaxing weekend away

  • 4 of 5

My husband, myself, and another couple enjoyed this NYE weekend at Sheila's. We've spent 4 NYE's together and wanted to change it up this year. This pet-friendly home was a great getaway, very relaxing.

It was very easy to get to - Used Waze to get to development, but used Sheila's emailed directions, which got us right there. Waze wanted to take us a different way, but we just used Sheila's directions.

Fully equipped kitchen, dining area, fireplace in living room, sitting room in the den/loft upstairs with a TV & DVD player (no cable! *slight* only downfall, but we made the best of it by taking full advantage of reading, drinking some beer/wine, and relaxing). 2 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, wifi can be found on the modem next to the table, next to the fridge. (Which came in handy as we brought our tablet to stream football, Netflix, then Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve.) Only left the house to walk our dog and to pick up another case of water from Food Town. Probably would have ventured out more, but it was 3 degrees at one point and reading and sitting by the fire sounded better. :) It was a memorable NYE!

Relaxing, Clean and Cozy!

  • 5 of 5

The address was a bit hard to find at first, I called Shiela and gave clear directions (a u-turn and then a left) lol wasn't bad at all. When we arrived it was well worth the price and drive. The house is beautiful, spacious and entering felt like home. The area is very private,clean and had a lot of amenities for all ages. A quick drive to Bushkill Falls made it even better. Highly recommend this and would definitely rent again!!!!
