Awesome experience all around!!
We are beyond pleased with everyone we worked with to make our weekend happen! Lisa was a pleasure to work with and the owners were so nice and attentive. We had an issue with the burners on the stove and they had the maintenance guy come right away and it got fixed! We booked paintball at Skirmish through Lisa & Lance and it was super easy from start to finish. We were all reserved and ready to go at the paintball location.The Sierra Vista cabin is beautiful, large, and super homey. Definitely booking our next group getaway here!
So glad you had such a great experience! You were wonderful to help and we'd love to have you back anytime! Cheers! Lisa & Lance PLCR
We recently rented this cabin for our 1st family reunion. The Cabin itself is very beautiful and clean. The view is to die for and the people are as polite and warm as could be. Truly a great place to vacation. We will be looking forward into renting it again. Sincerely, D Rodriguez
The place was beyond beautiful, the pictures do not do it justice. We went in a big group of friends and had an amazing time. It is also really close to lake harmony, where you can rent boats and canoes and such.... really amazing place, clean, cozy, has a great view with all the necessary amenities.
We rented Neil's beautiful log cabin in early August to go whitewater rafting. It was everything we could expect. The view off the deck was great and well worth the trip. Everything inside is very nice and well kept. Neil was very easy to reach and was a pleasure to deal with. If we go rafting again we will definitely look at renting this house again.
This is an excellent place to stay! I rented Neil's cabin for a college reunion weekend and it was a great place to reunite with friends, relax and enjoy the surroundings. The cabin had plenty of room for our group of 13 and did not disappoint. The hot tub and pool table were great to have at our disposal and sitting on the deck and looking at the view is worth the price of admission. The town of white haven is not far at all which has a supermarket and other stores which makes it easy if you forget to bring something. The side yard has a fire pit which was great to use at night and relax outside. You will enjoy your stay at this wonderful cabin.
I recently spent a weekend there with 15 of my friends. The house is huge, plenty of room for everyone. Fire pit was amazing and house is gorgeous. I also must say the owner is a pleasure to deal with and the house keeping lady is a dear as well. Everytime I go to one of the owners houses, I always comeback and try to plan another trip. Love the house and definately look forward to returning soon
Just spent this past weekend with 13 friends at the house and we had an amazing time! I would definitely recommend this house if you want to get away for a weekend and have a great time! The house had everything we needed, provided for us. We will definitely be going back as soon as possible!
Hey Neil, My family and I would like to thank you for all your generosity you showed us during our stay. We all had a very relaxing yet fun filled week in your beautiful home.It was just so nice sitting on the back deck every evening after a long day of running around the area( bushkill, white water rafting, horseback riding,jim thorpe etc.) and just staring out over the "50 mile view" while our son cooked dinner on the grill every night!! We are definately going to return at some point in the future because it is so rare being able to find someone you can rely on to make your vacation a resounding success in every way! Thanks again Neil, Mike and Tracey
Mike and Tracey, Thank you very much for the kind comments about your stay in the SIERRA VISTA chalet log home. I am glad you had a nice time in the log home and appreciated the "50 mile view." Also, the Lehigh River Gorge is a favorite area for my family - whitewater rafting and the bike trail leading to Jim Thorpe. It was, indeed, an honor for us to have you stay in our vacation home. Please return in the near future to relax and see more of the Poconos. Neil
11 of us, warm July weekend. It was a bachelor party/reunion for the college gang. We enjoyed every aspect of the house...I'll just go ahead and list them. Good space on the driveway for parking. Then you walk into the Sierra Vista and it's spacious, clean, and welcoming. Air-conditioning available. We made full use of the refrigerator, freezer (with ice machine included), propane BBQ grill, stove, oven, cooking equipment, dishwasher, pool table, Amish table for card games, downstairs bar, and TVs. One of us even got into the hot tub on the deck. There's a firepit outside too. A dumpster for your trash is conveniently located just a few yards down the road. The house matches what you see in the pictures and the sleeping arrangements are very convenient. 3 levels and outdoor access from the bottom two. 3 excellent bathrooms too. We were able to give the bachelor his own queen bed and bathroom. Within 30 minutes to rafting and paintball. Within 10 minutes to a supermarket, pizza place, liquor store, gas station, and ice cream parlor. Not far off of Route 80. Nice scenic drives all around too. The owner is very courteous and accessible via email/phone. Thanks a lot Neil. We'll do our best to return soon.
Mario and Neeraj, I am very glad you chose to have your bachelor party at the SIERRA VISTA log home. It was very good that you had the opportunity to participate in some of the activities in the area. It was a pleasure for us to have you in our vacation home - you were ideal guests. Neil
Just got back from a long weekend with our 2 children, their spouses and are 2 new (3months old) grandchildren. What a wonderful place to just kick back and visit. I think my daughter and daughter-in-law were in the cabin 5 minutes when they jumped into the hot tub! It was a chilly, rainy weekend but the sunrise over the gorge was still awesome and the hot tub is fun in the sun or the rain. A perfect way to relax at the end of the day. The cabin is great, it has everything and we felt right at home. Thank you for a wonderful time for us to be together as a family.
I am very happy that the family had a nice time at the log home. The view from the deck and hot tub is outstanding - in fact when I stay there I like to sleep in the great room because of the beautiful view - rain, snow or shine. The family were wonderful guests - hope they return in the future. Neil
I rented this house for Memorial Day Weekend with a group of grad school friends and their children. This house easily accommodated the 7 adults in the group with rooms for the children on the lower level. The house itself is in excellent condition and nearly everything you might need is at hand - cooking wares, dishes, washer/dryer, dishwasher, grill etc. There's a great view over the gorge to small mountains in the distance from the deck and great room. Overall, the group was very happy with our rental. If only one thing could be corrected, it would be the steepness of the hill on route 940 nearby which made our morning runs more challenging then expected for a vacation trip ; )
Chris, Thank you for staying in our log home. I am very happy that you and your graduate school friends had a positive experience. It really feels good to know that the Memorial Day weekend was a success for everyone. Please return in the future because you always will be welcome here - ideal families. Neil
I rented this house with ten of my friends for a fun snowboarding weekend for my 28th birthday. The house is beautiful and serenly located in the Pocono mountains. We all had a great time having "family meals" at the long kitchen table and enjoyed playing pool in the basement. Everyone slept comfortably and the house is conveniently located near Jack Frost, Big Boulder and Camelback ski resorts. The morning sunrise is beautiful off of the back deck and cozy for a hot tub sunset. We defintely plan on renting this house agian in the future. The owner is nice, flexible and responds quickly to any requests. I definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to have fun and feel at home.
Beautiful, warm, sunny cabin. So happy that we stayed there. It was just as described and more! We went in a group of 8 people plus two doggies, we all had such a good time. The balcony view was just breathtaking – perfect for Meditation. There is nothing we didn’t like about the place! Would come back in a heartbeat!
I had the distinct pleasure of working with this homes owner in order to carry out a 15 person Bachelor party. This log home was everything that we could have asked for and more. Great set up, great views, easy to find, clean, and a very accessible owner. Not only would I recommend it to ALL but we already decided to have an annual retreat to this particular location. Awesome times Neil and thanks again!!
Plenty of space for my extended family! We were celebrating my daughter and niece's 10th birthday. We were thrilled to wake up to 4+ inches of snow Saturday morning. The children loved the hot tub, hot cocoa and roasted marshmallows from the fire pit. We had many pool tournaments over the weekend. We were able to snow tube right near the property. Gorgeous views from the house and deck. All cooking materials we needed were there. Owner responds to questions and concerns immediately. I would highly recommend this cabin. Love that it is pet friendly!
Went for a bachelor party paintball weekend. The hot tub was great and you can't beat the space. The two decks and large driveway plus basement make for a great party indoor, outdoor, or a bit of both. The owner is also extremely fair and easy to work with. We ran out of propane and his maintenance guy was there within 20 minutes on an early Saturday morning. Great beer distributor nearby right off the exit and reasonable drive to paintball, rafting, bike trails, hunting woods, and "casino". Only criticisms - could use a decent radio and definitely needs new grill or at least new grill plates and burners, but we got by and the kitchen is very well stocked with supplies.
10 of our friends rented this Pocono retreat over Halloween weekend and had an absolute ball. The house itself was perfect. Cosy yet spacious, enough room for us to bring 6 extra people next time! Washer/dryer in house was great for after our 8 mile hike through the woods of the houses front door! And the fire pit out back (with quaint wood seats) kept us warm as the fall nights rolled through. Two indoor fireplaces made sure we were comfy all weekend long, and the kitchen had all the supplies needed for us to feast "family style". The owner, NB, made the weekend getaway super simple, and we highly recommending this location, or any of NB's, in the future. Thank you! Enjoy your next stay in the Pocono's.
Thank you so much for the positive review - greatly appreciated. We try our best to have a clean home for all guests. Another unique thing in the area is Penn's Peak, near Jim Thorpe - a wide range of first-class entertainment is there (for all ages) The venue is one of the best I have seen anywhere - a beautiful wooden structure with a magnificent panoramic view. Attended an Engelbert Humperdinck concert last week - it was outstanding. You can go to wonderful entertainment events at Penn's Peak, Mt. Airy Casino and Mohican Sun Casino while enjoying the Poconos. Hope you return soon. Neil
My friends and I were looking for a nice place in the woods to relax, golf, grill steaks, and get away from our wives and kids for a couple days. This place more than delivered. Second time staying at one of the owner's properties, first time as the trip planner. The owner is a stand up guy who went out of his way to accommodate us. The house is in pristine condition, excellent TVs, pool table, stereo, WiFi, etc for playing movies and music when it wasn't pleasant outside. Lots of room for parking and activities (bean bags, frisbee, etc.) The location is far enough away that you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere, but really you're less than ten minutes away from Interstate 80, gas, grocery store, bars, and restaurants. We plan to stay here again, mainly because of the property, location, and the aesthetics, but also because the owner is such a great guy.
So I spent the weekend with my social circle in amazingly welcoming log build home in the mountains of Pennsylvania. The views from the home where breath taking. Upon entering the home its almost as if I had stayed there before . Home was very warm the heat and fire place was almost not necessary due to the fantastic radiant heat that is in the floors . The house was extremely clean and the beds where large . Lots and lots of sleeping space for larger partys. Neil was very easy to work with and even took the time out of his day to turn on the tv and heat so that when we arrived we felt as if we had come home ,light on and all . The home is within driving distance (15 mins) of a Wal mart, local grocery, beer distribution, and if you are looking to hit the slopes as we did it's only about 30 mins away . A very doable drive to jack frost or big bolder. I will definitely be back again .
We rented this cabin for a weekend in which we wanted to escape the hustle and bustle of NYC for a time in the mountains. The views from the deck are amazing, the cabin itself is stellar, high-quality, clean--everything one could ask for. The owner is also extremely courteous and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.
I RECENTLY STAYED AT THE SIERRA VISTA CHALET OVER MLK WEEKEND WITH A GROUP OF FRIENDS. WE WERE 12 PEOPLE. THE HOUSE WAS WONDERFUL AND JUST AS PICTURED. THERE WAS PLENTY OF ROOM TO SLEEP OUR WHOLE GROUP ALONG WITH 3 FULL BATHROOMS. IT WAS CLEAN WITH SPECTACULAR VIEWS. 20 MINUTE RIDE TO JACK FROST AND BIG BOULDER FOR SKIING/BOARDING. NEIL, THE OWNER, WAS WONDERFUL TO WORK WITH AND WAS VERY HOSPITABLE. IT WAS A NICE WEEKEND AWAY IN THE MOUNTAINS AND I WILL ABSOLUTELY BE CONTACTING NEIL ABOUT FUTURE STAYS! IT IS A MUST BOOK!!!
What a great property, and an even better owner. Neil was so easy to work with a so accommodating to our large group. As a group of old college friends, we were looking for somewhere to be able to have a fun, late night, and still relax. This home was perfect. We skied at Jack frost, which was quite close, and played paintball at skirmish. The house has everything you may need to cook large meals as well as extra towels and bed linen to accommodate extra guests and air mattresses. We are already thinking of coming back in the Spring!
i can not say enough about this beautiful house and the wonderful owner neil brown.the house is perfect so gorgeous and the view over the top.it was so warm and cozy beds are very comfortable everything was perfect. i never dealt with such a kind and gracious owner in my life.god bless you neil and your beautiful home we will be back. thank you so much connie and dan la cross
Stayed for a weekend at this lovely cabin/house. Absolutely amazing views of the gorge/mountains. House was not too close to the neighbors so there was a nice amount of privacy. 3 full bathrooms on 3 floors (convenient). A great living room, downstairs, and deck area - all of which were more than spacious enough for our group. Outdoor firepit was nice, along with providing ample wood for the firepit. There also must have been 10+ rocking chairs, all of which were also surprisingly comfortable. Overall the furniture was much nicer than your usual rental furniture. Owner was super friendly and easy to deal with. Provided a list of stores/restaurants in the area, along with recommendations/ratings of the restaurants. From the places that we visited, the recommendations were spot on. Received security deposit almost immediately after departure. Ken, the property manager, was super responsive and helpful. We needed more wood for the outdoor fire pit, and Ken was there within 10 minutes of us calling him. Wasn't intrusive at all, which some property managers can be. Overall we had a great stay. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice time in White Haven. If I ever come back to White Haven, this will definitely be the place we stay. 5 out of 5.
Amazing house to get away to for a weekend with the guys couldn't have asked for a better place this was top notch amazing views and just an all around good time and the owner Neil couldn't have made things any easier for us was a pleasure to deal with would recommend his place time and time again Thanks again!
Neil's cabin was everything we wanted for a dude's weekend in the Poconos. An unreal deck and view, space in the front of the house for yard games, and plenty of room inside to crash. The home was VERY clean and had everything you could need for your trip: a fully equipped kitchen, grill, towels and a hot tub! Would highly recommend for any groups looking to get away. Thanks, Neil!
Our group of 3 couples, a 9 month old, and our family dog had a great time over Thanksgiving Weekend. We were looking for an escape from NY and to just relax - the Chalet provided exactly what we were looking for. The views were amazing and the home itself with the cabin feel provided for the perfect mountain atmosphere. We had now problem cooking big meals in the spacious and functional kitchen and the house can sleep a ton of people comfortably. It was great having the mountain location but still only being a short drive from the casinos, mount Pocono, and Camelback. Neil and his team were great hosts and provided us with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend this place to all those interested.
My group and i had a great time this past weekend staying at the chalet! Neil was very helpful leading up to the trip and Bill was on site to help make sure the driveway was plowed. The house is great for a large group and is close to grocery stores. Will definitely look to come back again!
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!
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!!
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.
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!
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!
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!
It rained the entire time, but is so well equipped that we had plenty to do. All you need to bring is a bar of soap and some food. It has two gas fireplaces, a gas grill, hot tub, pool table, games, and just about everything in the kitchen. Must be 100 towels at the cabin. Antonio's Pizza is the best pizza. We had deer right off the deck in the woods sleeping and eating the entire weekend. We would stay here again in the future.
Had a great weekend at the log home. House sleeps 14 comfortably. Quiet neighborhood with scenery overlooking a drop off from the hot tub on the balcony. Amenities were great! Had a bunch of guys from out of town and location was great for golf and night life. Would recommend to anyone looking for a get away. Will use again in the future. Owner very respectful, and any issues/questions very prompt to answer (within 30 mins). Overall very pleased with the experience and glad we chose this log home over the rest!!
This house was perfect for our 12-person group. It is full of charm and character, and has plenty of space and seating to accommodate a group. There are two incredible decks, with a gorgeous view, hot-tub and nice big grill. It was clean, easy to get into/out-of, and an overall great experience. I would highly recommend it!
What a wonderful week we all had at your beautiful house! This is one of the best vacation rentals we have ever had-everything is provided; it is truly a turn-key rental! It was also very clean and well-maintained. We were a party of 9 including grandparents from the UK and a couple of friends and there was more than enough room for everyone. Lots of happy memories made here enjoying the beautiful views from the decks or hot tub, playing games or relaxing with a book. We were close to all of the outdoor activities that we could wish for. We had a couple of minor things that needed to be taken care of and Ken, the maintenance guy was very friendly, helpful and prompt to take action. Thank you Neil and we hope to visit again sometime.
Had a fantastic time at this property. Clean, spacious... plus great amenities (hot tub, pool table, grill, etc). The view from the hot tub is worth the price alone! My only gripe is that the write up/summary is not overly transparent with how close you are to other cabins. The photos make it seem like you are isolated, but you're not. You're only a few hundred feet from another cabin. It still felt private and did not impact my stay, I just wish I knew it going in. Overall, I highly recommend this property.
I stay with some friend, and this is perfect vacation. everything available be in here I want. I recommend especially some group families. 私はアメリカ駐在中の日本人です。 初めてアメリカで日本人からの友人を招いてこちらに宿泊しましたが、日本人からみてもとても清潔で満足できるオーナーさんの対応です。写真の通り最高のロケーションで、焚き火のスポットやジャグジー、ビリヤードもあり大人から子供までみんながら満足できるコテージでした。 日本人にもとってもお勧めです。
A few buddies and I get together every year for a weekend in the Poconos and selected this house - we were not disappointed! The house is very roomy (nine beds in total!) and has pretty decent outside space as well. The view from the back porch is absolutely amazing and the inside is extremely clean. Neil was as helpful as can be and took care of all of our needs. Great owner! I encourage anyone looking for a great weekend to rent this house!
Plenty of room here to spread out, with three levels that are comfortable and welcoming. The view from the back is magnificent and the spacious deck provides for great relaxation; ,for anyone with a bad back (me) the rockers are great. Barbeque grill clean and ready to go - home clean and bright! As someone else mentioned, the area is remote and beautiful but there is another cabin a couple of hundred feet away - this did not spoil our stay. Hickory State Park, a very short drive away, has excellent hiking trails that end at waterfalls - amenities there are free. Enjoy!
My family, friends and I absolutely loved our stay here. The house was gorgeous and clean. It accommodated all 10 of us perfectly. The beds were comfortable. All towels clean and plentiful. The view is exceptional. We thoroughly enjoyed the Jacuzzi and pool table. Neil provided the utmost customer service and Ken was readily available to help if needed. My guest and I will be coming back again!
Rented this place for a low-key get-together with a collection of far-flung friends. We had no issues with cars/ parking, and when we rolled up, we were floored by the beautiful beautiful view. The home is solid, well maintained, and accurate-as-advertised: sleeps many, entertains many. We loved the porches, grill, pool table, hot tub, bar, etc. Couldn't ask for better – thank you again, Neil!
Recently spent three days here with 15 friends and we had a fantastic time! Everything was as described, if not better! There is plenty of space, with five comfortable bedrooms and also a loft and basement area that's great for kids to spread out in! The home is fully stocked with plenty of towels, cozy bedding, and any kitchen implement you could possibly want. There is a large grill conveniently located right outside the front door, which was clean and ready to go. There were spectacular views from the hot tub on the upper deck. When we had trouble getting one of the fireplaces to come on, we sent a text and within minutes someone came right over and helped us out. Also, there was plenty of beautiful hiking nearby. We definitely hope to return and experience this lovely cabin in other seasons!
This home was so amazing, and so spacious it comfortably fit all 16 of us! We do a weekend trip and rent a home every year, and this by far is one of my personal favorites. I just wish it was a bit closer to the mountain. Other than that, no complains. The neighbors we so friendly and took care of us. A snow storm hit, and bill made sure our deck was salted and driveway was plowed. Even offered to help if anyone got stuck. And WOW, what a view! ALso, the kitchen! I packed kitchen stuff and didn’t even have to pull it out! Fully equipped! Overall a perfect weekend. Thank you again Neil for sharing your beautiful home with us!
The Sierra Vista was incredible! We had 11 people there for a bachelor party and we took full advantage of the side porch with grill and rear deck with amazing views. The interior was perfect with lots of space for hanging out and plenty of beds for everyone. Having everything included (sheets, towels, etc.) was a bonus as well. We’ll be back, for sure!
