About Joel Turinski

I live in Northeastern Pennsylvania and work nearby. I stay at this property when it is not being rented and really enjoy the craft that went into the older style construction.

Joel Turinski purchased this farmhouse in 2015

Why Joel Turinski chose Swiftwater

I bought this home because it is conveniently located in the center of the Poconos where there are many recreational opportunities. It's a short drive to the casino, several water parks, hiking, kayaking, rails to trails bike trails, wineries, you name it!

What makes this farmhouse unique

I love re-enacting the water scene from the movie "The Miracle Worker" with the hand pump to the well on the property.

Perfect for a quiet gettaway

  • 4 of 5

The property was great, with the woods outback it really gave us a true Poconos experience. Pulling into the driveway there were a few deer hanging out in the back which we loved. The owner clearly cares about his guests and provides us with all the essentials we could think of. Would definitely recommend to our friends.

Perfect space for a group of friends to hangout and get away, close to Camelback

  • 5 of 5

The house was great, space was more than enough for 6+ people, mattresses were very firm and not the most comfortable but manageable. Woods out back we’re great for hiking up with our dogs. Would highly recommend for groups! 15-20 min from Camelback, plenty of parking for at least 3 cars, will look to come back again. Thank you!

Nice Location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this for a month and it was a nice and quite location. The place was clean upon arrival and Joel was very attentive when messaged. Joel did have fans for every room. Only downside is the blind driveway to the location. Cars drive by fast and its sometimes hard to get out. Joel of course has no control over this. Would stay again. It is in a central location to things in the Poconos.

Convenient and had everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

It's close to Kalahari and Camelback. We also went to Bushkill (40 mins to the east) and Mountain View Park (10 mins south by I-80), both of which the kids loved. The full kitchen and laundry room were very useful. I texted Joel when we couldn't get onto the wifi and he replied right away. One thing we didn't like was that the bedrooms and pillows smelt bad (damp and old). But maybe it's the floor that's too old or the humidity in the house that caused it... But overall a nice stay. Thanks.

Car: recommended

Located in the center of the Poconos. Close to Mt. Airy Casino, Kalahari water park, Tannersville shopping outlets, and all that the Poconos has to offer. This pet friendly vacation rental is a great place to launch your Pocono adventure and come back to recoup for your next one! Or, just spend the week relaxing and taking in the local wildlife.
