About Neil Brown

I am a retired university professor and my wife is a retired

elementary school teacher.

Neil Brown purchased this house in 2006

Why Neil Brown chose Pennsylvania

We wanted an Amish-built log home with an outstanding view.

Built this log home on the edge of a cliff overlooking

the Lehigh River Gorge - the best view of any home in the

Poconos.

What makes this house unique

The log home is ideally located near all of the activities in the Poconos - yet, secluded. You have the best of both worlds - lots of things to do yet away from the mad rush!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at the cabin for a weekend with a bunch of girlfriends for my 30th birthday. The cabin was perfect, very clean and beautiful. The view outside was absolutely breathtaking. Will definitely be staying here again and highly recommend it!

Beautiful log home in the Poconos with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I spent a weekend in this cabin and had a wonderful time. The cabin was very clean and everything was provided. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and the wonderful view from the back porch. This property is placed in a perfect location. Lastly, Neil was excellent and went above and beyond to assure that we had a great weekend, offering to be available 24/7 in the event that we had any concerns during our stay. We will certainty stay here in the future. Thanks again Neil!

Great place to stay, Spacious and awesome view

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay. Traveled from NYC to stay from the weekend. Despite being only 2 hours away it really felt like we were someplace much further.

Great location with an awesome view. You can see a great sun rise and sun set.

The living areas were clean and well arranged before we got there.

The rental was much better than the pictures listed on the website. Was much better than expected.

Great rates. It really is a bargain.

Lots of stuff to do at the house and around the area.

Thanks for the great stay Neil.

Gorgeous home, perfect for our wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for our wedding weekend and we couldn't have been any happier. The home is very clean, spacious, and the view is to die for. Neil was also very kind, easily accessible, and super easy going throughout the whole process. The home has everything that you may need (i.e. plenty of towels, laundry detergent, bathroom paper, fully equipped kitchen, and even gas tanks for grilling) Our friends/family members that spent the weekend with us also loved it and plan on renting on their own. Thanks for providing the home that made our wedding weekend even more memorable!!

Great weekend in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this place justice!! This cabin is in a great location, and quite possibly one of the best views I have ever seen. Waking up to this every morning was a treat!

We had an amazing weekend celebrating a friend for his upcoming wedding. The house did not disappoint in any way. It was hard to leave!

Neil answered all questions punctually, and our overall experience was A+!

Thanks again! Highly recommended!

Sweet Spot

  • 4 of 5

Great clean house in good location. View is really nice. Only reason i gave it 4 stars and not 5 is the walls are a bit thin. You can hear everything thats going on in the house. Highly recommended though!!!!
