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!

Awesome Property! Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My group of fourteen grad student friends stayed for the weekend and had a GREAT time! House comfortably slept all fourteen of us! All amenities worked beautifully. Kitchen has everything you need to cook a meal for a big group. Beautiful view of the mountains. Easy access to local supermarket, package store, restaurants. We had a great time at Skirmish paintball facility and easy 30 minute drive from the cabin. Had a nice dinner at Powerhouse Eatery. Plenty of wood for a bonfire on Saturday night with xtra wood available close by. Didn't end up needing any. Thanks to Neil for being accessible via phone to answer any questions we had. On Monday a friend of mine got in touch with me to let me know he'd left an important item behind at the cabin. Neil was extremely helpful in getting the item returned! Would love to stay again. Thanks Neil for going above and beyond! Highly recommended!

We had a great holiday weekend at the Sierra Vista! The home had everything we needed and Neil and Amey were great hosts. We appreciate that Neil welcomes pets and is available to answer questions right away. We will definitely be coming back in the future. Thank you!

Perfect home

  • 5 of 5

The log house was exactly what I was looking for. It's very clean, cozy and has everything you need. 15 people can comfortable sleep there. The fire pit outside was awesome. We made s'mores all night. I am so glad we found this gem! Neil is super easy to communicate with and he was very flexible with the check in and out. Will definitely be back!

Perfect!

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.
