I operate a new home building and renovation company. Millie and I purchased this home, then completely remodeled and decorated it for friends and family to use while visiting. After we had inquiries from friends of friends, we decided to open the rental to folks who enjoy a cozy, relaxing getaway that is conveniently located to most of what the Poconos have to offer.

This property is adjacent to the Thomas Darling Preserve at Two Mile Run. "Emerging from underground springs and seeps, Two-Mile Run feeds into Tobyhanna Creek, and eventually feeds the Lehigh River. Along the way, it traverses the 2,500-acre Thomas Darling Preserve at Two-Mile Run, a place where visitors can witness an extensive mosaic of glacial wetlands via a two mile trail and boardwalk system."
Usually, access can be difficult because of the general public's access is several miles away. However, being in this private area affords easy access just 100 yards away.
We enjoyed our stay. The property was private and the house was cozy. We had plenty of room for our party of 8 along with a few visitors who didn't stay over. The owner was away, but there was someone available to assist us. She was very helpful and nice. We recommend this property if you're looking for a comfortable, carefree, peaceful getaway with family and/or friends.
I was here about a year ago along with 6 others we all love your home. I don't know if you remember us, but we were all young..in our early 20's lol Even though it rained throughout our stay we still had fun staying in. It sure was quiet, clean, cozy and comfortable..if your look for a place to stay and to feel right at home this is the home to rent it has everything you can think of from washing machine to the dishwashing machine.. Blender a oven anything you can think of this house as it in there it's so nice and clean and well furnished. I wish I can live here lol. The owners were nice as well anything you need their there to help, but I'm pretty sure you wouldn't need anything because this house is simply the best. Thank you again John
What a fabulous trip! After staying at an old, overpriced resort a few years back, we rented John and Millie's smaller home last year. Knowing how nice and affordable that house was and how easy and pleasant John was to work with, we did not hesitate to contact him again for his larger home since our party size grew. LOCATION: We travel from southern NJ so this is very easy to get to off of 476, and house is off of a main road for easy access. It is minutes away from Jack Frost and Big Boulder, right down road from restaurants and food market. We even ventured a little further and shopped at a Super Walmart for some items. At John's suggestion, we took the pleasant and simple 30 minute drive to historic Jim Thorpe for the afternoon and loved the charm there. HOUSE: Charming, very nicely decorated, super clean and very spacious. 1st floor had bathroom, laundry room, bedroom with 2 twins and very spacious living room area with plenty of comfortable seating, beautiful fireplace, and bar. Closet even had some games the kids loved (it was nice to see them off of electronics for a bit!). 2nd floor had another comfortable living room with fireplace, full kitchen (toaster, coffee pot, pans, dishes, utensils galore), large dining table, 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. We had a large party and never were crowded for space. Besides the food items we purchased, we did not need for anything else. OWNERS: This is 2nd year we rented from them and they are very responsive and welcoming. The house was ready for us when we arrived, heated and even had a candle glowing. Complimentary breakfast items are waiting on the kitchen counter. Even though they live very close by, they give you privacy but will kindly check in to make sure all is well and let you know to reach out if you need anything. The security deposits were credited immediately. Thank you, John and Millie...despite the frigid temps, we made the absolute best of our stay and look forward to next year!
This pristine home is very well up kept and elegantly decorated. John and Millie really go out of their way to make sure everything is in order, from stocking the fridge with staple items, to purchasing fire wood for us to use. Some of the big highlights were the open floor plan upstairs, the large living room downstairs, complete with wet bar, and the huge rap-around porch on the second floor. There was plenty of space for the 4 couples that we had staying in the home. Communicating and making payments was painless and simple. I received my security deposit the day after our departure. I would highly recommend this home if you are planning a visit to the Poconos. If I ever plan another trip to the Poconos, I will definitely be reaching out to John and Millie once again.
We enjoyed a wonderful 4th of July weekend at this property. The house was very clean and even had breakfast waiting for us. The owners were very welcoming and communicated with us throughoutour stay to see if we needed anything. Definetly recommend it!
I stayed here for the weekend with 9 other people it was spacious and beautiful. We couldn't get over the flawless decor. John and Millie were very nice to us as well.
