About Joanne & Scott

I grew up in Pennslyvania and went to PSU for both undergrad and grad school. I've lived in Stroudsburg for the last 25 years as an artist and real estate manager.

Joanne & Scott purchased this cabin in 1999

Why Joanne & Scott chose Poconos

This property has been my retreat for the last 10 years where I go to read, eat, and do my photography. I love to sleep with the windows open and listen to the waterfalls...I have been spending more of my time in New York, so I felt that I should share this lovely place with those who appreciate a touch of nature.

What makes this cabin unique

I have provided lawn chairs, water shoes and rubber boots of all sizes, because I love to place my chair in the creek and I want my friends to be able to join me. Sometimes we find a flat rock and use that as our table for the cheese and crackers. It is a great place for coffee in the morning, and wine in the evening. Both summer and winter, just keep your feet out of the water once you are sitting, otherwise they get cold! I have warmed my toes many times in front of the fire while sitting in the rocking chair.

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! This beautiful home was exactly what I needed to get away and recharge the batteries. Quiet and peaceful and just secluded enough. The stream provides the perfect background and sound to allow you to just relax.

great responsive owners, great outside, inside needs help.

  • 3 of 5

First off, Joanne is amazing, fast responses to any questions and the house is in a great location, we loved the creek and fire pit. my only criticism is not on the owners because i know they pay cleaners, but the house was horribly dirty, dust everywhere and cobwebs. i spent an hour cleaning when we first got there. If they get cleaners that actually clean this place will be a gem!

Spacious and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The space was spacious! My party and I went in February when it was cold. The heating in the main living room was great to combat the cold. The bedrooms however were colder than the living room. The hot water for the jacuzzi would run out during fill-up, but the hot tub was perfect.

Joanne was great to correspond with. She was easy to reach and also very flexible with our plans, letting my party to check in early and check out late. It was a very fun and relaxing stay!

The house was exactly what we expected!

  • 4 of 5

Getting there was tricky because we used the address on the site instead of the personalized directions that were emailed, but luckily it was only a few minutes difference :) Once we arrived and got into the house everything was great. The house was clean, organized, and very spacious. The owners left instructions on how certain things work and where certain items were. Unfortunately, the couple we went with stayed in the 2nd bedroom with the queen bed and said that the sliding glass door would not close all the way/lock so it was quite cold in their room. Also, minor, but worth mentioning, there are a lot of light switches throughout the house - some work, some don't do anything! It was difficult to figure out which switch controlled what room/light; and the lighting overall isn't spectacular. Besides that, we really enjoyed the house for the short time we were there.
