Overview

About the property

Fully Renovated Historic Cottage on Edge of Woods in Downtown Mt Pocono

This warm and cozy cottage has two full bathrooms and comfortably sleeps 8 adults in 4 bedrooms: each filled with ample bedding and linens, and modern conveniences like flat screen televisions and docking stations for all personal electronics. There is central air and heat throughout the cottage, but each bedroom has its own heat controls. For those that enjoy their screen time, the house has Wi-Fi. Cable and DVD players with diverse DVD library. For those that enjoy curling up with a good book, the home has numerous book shelves packed with classics and best sellers. The fully stocked Kitchen has butcher block counter tops, vintage farmhouse sink, dishwasher, spacious peninsula for eating, and the indispensable Keurig (1.0) machine. No food products or condiments are provided. A full selection of board games can be found in living area. A full size HE washer and dryer is located on the main living level outside full bathroom. The cottage is fully stocked with bathing towels, paper products, hair dryer, ironing supplies, and more. Outside, the grounds offer a hot tub, fire pit, gas grill and large lawn. Or you could choose to stay up on the large covered porch to take in the great outdoors with breathtaking views of Camelback Mountain. Large private parking area leads to stairs up to main entrance porch.

This cottage has such a homey feeling and is the perfect relaxing retreat you need, while being close to everything. Nestled at the edge of the woods, yet still being in the heart of downtown Mount Pocono. Walking distance to restaurants, movies, entertainment and shopping. Stones throw from skiing, waterparks, casino, horseback riding and more! Little over a mile from Pocono Mountain Municipal Airport and less than 500 yards from bus terminal with dozens of daily routes to Port Authority. Unlike most of the “Pocono Mountain” vacation rentals you find online, this cottage is not located within a massive housing development. You will have no need to hassle with community association rules, gates and getting lost in the winding roads littered with cookie cutter houses. This is truly a taste of the Poconos the way it used to be.

Come enjoy the year-round entertainment! Summers, spend a refreshing day of fun at one of the local waterparks (Camelbeach, Aquatopia, Kalahari & Great Wolf Lodge). In the winter, Camelback Ski resort features 34 trails and 16 lifts for all levels and snow tubing too. All are just moments away! Three of the indoor waterparks are available year round: Camelback's Aquatopia, Kalahari adjacent to Pocono Manor Inn and Great Wolf Lodge. Day passes are available. No need to stay on site to enjoy. Just down the mountain is The Crossings Premium Outlets with 100 brand names stores and Mount Airy Casino and Resort is only minutes away (mountairycasino.com). Even if you are not into gambling, the restaurants and spa are superlative. If you’re a racing fan Pocono Raceway is located just a short ride away. If you are a foodie, the list of fabulous restaurants in the area is extensive. Horseback riding and ATV trails are a mile down the road at Memorytown (memorytownusa.com). Our neighbor two doors down is the Casino Theater (casinotheatre.net), which offers first run movies, delicious food and a fun arcade. Seasonal miniature golf at the Casino Theater as well! Just opened this year is Pocono Rocks, a climbing gym. Check it out at poconorocks.com Cottage will be stocked with literature and information for all of the area’s nooks and cranies to discover.

Why Megan Williamson chose Mount Pocono

This home is a classic Poconos cottage that we completely renovated from the wiring and plumbing to the furnishings. You will enjoy the convenience of being in town for easy access to restaurants, shopping, and entertainment. Yet you will still feel the sense of getting away from it all in this woodsy retreat.

The host, Megan, was extremely accommodating and gracious. The house is beautifully redone, hot tub is amazing, beds are extremely comfortable, and the location is spectacular. Uber and the taxi service in the area are very convenient. Will definitely stay here again.

Fantastic vacation home is now the family favorite!

  • 5 of 5

Not only did we receive perfect directions to the cottage, Megan also provided suggestions on places to visit or dine while we were in Mt Pocono. Megan even messaged us to make sure we got in to the cottage. The cottage had a very cosey appeal and the decor was great - the ladies raved. The porch was everyone's favorite place to relax with the dogs. By the second day of our stay, all of our friends we invited were asking if we can return in 2018. Everything about our vacation stay at cottage was great in every way - I'm looking forward to coming back.
