Is your day job and life's pressures getting the best of you? Do you need a break?
Then plan a quick retreat to recharge your batteries at our Pocono Log Home Getaway!

This is a true Log Home - 8" logs frame the entire structure with post and beam interiors! The Cabin overlooks Beltzville Lake State Park that features a 7 mile long lake with beaches, boating, kayaking, fishing, hiking (check out the covered bridge!), and so much more. All popular skiing and water parks are within a short drive - you can actually see the Blue Mountain slopes across the valley from our front porch! We're located in the heart of the Poconos on 1-1/2 wooded acres in a residential area (not a planned community) just 5 minutes from exit 74 on the NE Extension of the PA Turnpike and just a short 1-1/2 hour drive from Philadelphia or a 2 hour drive from NYC.

Blue Mountain, Big Boulder, Jack Frost, Camelback, and new indoor water parks are all just a short drive away. Nearby attractions include The Historic Town of Jim Thorpe, Pocono International Raceway, and Penn's Peak - a great place for big name entertainment and a spectacular view of the Blue Mountain Ridge. Look at the "Guidebooks" for other great activities and places of interest!

Our spacious log home will comfortably sleep 11 people. There are 2 full baths and all linens are included. The fully equipped kitchen is next to a large dining area and a two story great room. There is comfortable seating in the living room and a wood stove provides comfort and warmth on chilly nights (traditional electric heat is also available in each room and there is air conditioning in the summer). The Family room has a large screen TV with DVD player and games for the kids. There is WIFI throughout the house, a washer and dryer, and plenty of off street parking.

Guests must either be families or adults over age 25. A binder on the dining room table has information on what to do, where to eat, where to go, and local attractions. The driveway and parking area are plowed in the winter at the end of a snow fall. Because our cabin sits on a heavily wooded lot, no outside fires and/or fireworks are permitted. Sorry, no pets and no smoking inside.

We offer a 10% rental discount for active military and veterans w/ ID verification to thank our fellow vets for their service!
