Our home is located a few blocks from the entrance and is set off the road on a large lot that offers a glorious spectrum of color during the fall and a sense of the wonders of nature during a winter snowfall. if you are looking for a quiet respite or an area to enjoy a varity of outdoor activities for all ages, this is the home for you. Deer and wild turkey wander through our yards and offer a close look at the wonders of nature.

What makes this house unique

Less than 8 miles to skiing/snowboarding/tubing. 3 indoor waterparks, bowling, cinemas, Pocono racetrack, casinos, golf courses.

Lovely home, great for the kids

  • 5 of 5

Our two families had a wonderful time in the house and in the development and the surrounding area. Everything was well kept, and we enjoyed the decorations in the house and appreciated having everything we needed to cook meals and keep the kids occupied on rainy days. When we did get to spend time outdoors, the small playground was close by, along with a nice walking path a bit further, and there were several lakes and a pool that we would have taken more advantage of in hotter weather. We would happily return!

Great vacation in Poconos

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the house and spent wonderful two weeks enjoying it. It almost felt like being away from home in your own home. Everything you might need was there! The owners were very helpful and responsive to our needs. Would definitely rent again.

Wonderful house in the Poconos

  • 5 of 5

This home is located in a wonderful secluded (but not too secluded) location of the Poconos mountains. As it is located in a gated community you get very little through traffic or noisy crowds. Yet it is still close to so many great Poconos attractions like Blue Mountain and Jack Frost as well as convenient shopping locations like Shop Rite, all being a quick drive down the mountain. Behind the house is a stream and a pond on the other side of the stream where you can ice skate when it freezes over or just walk around. I definitely recommend coming here in the winter if you are looking to stay in a location with access to great skiing, tubing or just relaxing by the fireplace.

Molly J. 2016 - winter

  • 5 of 5

I and my family (spouse & 2 grandchildren) stayed here for 4 days this past winter to take advantage of the skiing & tubing at Blue Mountain. The house was extremely comfortable with a large dining room that we also used for evening games with th kids. Very convenient to both Boulder & Blue mountain activities. Plenty of local restaurants, grocery shopping, CVS, etc.
