Description

The space

My fully-furnished 3-BR cabin is located only 90 miles from Manhattan in the Pocono lake region. The house is situated in the woods, at the edge of a private lake community with access to docks, beach, and fishing (with PA permit of course). It's only a 15 min drive from Lake Wallenpaupack, and around the area you can find skiing, hiking, tubing, waterfalls, state forests, antique stores, farm stands, local markets, and Woodloch resort and spa.

The cabin rests on a one-acre lot on the edge of the Paupacken lake community, looking out over dense woods (there are other cottages within view of mine, but the neighbors keep to themselves and in the summer the leaves are so full you almost don't see them at all). It's packed full of soaring trees, boulders, and streams--and also cardinals, turkeys, foxes, and lots of deer who often laze around in the yard : ) A fire pit and a wraparound deck with outdoor seating and grill complete the outdoor experience.

Inside, the fire place fills the cabin with coziness and warmth. Features and amenities include ceiling fans, electric baseboard heaters in every room, Internet/Wi-Fi, record player with record collection, board games, ping-pong table, fully stocked kitchen, linens and towels, pre-packed beach bag, beach towels, lawn chairs, comfortable beds, and modern furniture.

The space is well-suited for a couple, a small family, or a few friends. The master loft has a queen-size bed and the 2 main floor bedrooms have 4 sets of sturdy, comfortable twin bunk beds.

Guest access

Guests will access the cabin through a set of keys contained in a key box hanging from the basement door, retrievable by a numerical code. Arrival and departure times are very flexible, provided no other guests are scheduled immediately after your visit. ONLY IF there is a guest immediately before or after you, arrival is usually after 4pm, and departure is usually before 12pm

Interaction with guests

I do not live at the cabin, but I am readily accessible via email and phone.

The neighbourhood

If you can pull yourself away from the comforts of the cabin, you'll have lots to do both in the Paupacken community and in the surrounding area. Inside the community, you're just a 15-minute walk from the closest dock where you can take out our 17ft Coleman canoe to fish and paddle around the beautiful 230 acre lake. This glacial lake is one of the cleanest ones you'll find in Northeast Pennsylvania. (This is due in part to the fact that power boats are not allowed on the lake) The lake is stocked with sunfish, perch, and walleye – it's a regular fisherman's delight. In summertime, head down to the beach to lay out or jump off the floating dock or to the large pavilion to grill up some lunch while playing lawn games, or just explore the woods and creeks right across the road from the house. There are also 2 bikes available for use around the lake.


Outside of the community, you're just a short drive away from excellent hiking, quaint strips of shops and restaurants (including the beautiful Settlers Inn with full lunch and dinner menu and live music while you eat, and the glass bar at ledges where you can have drinks and tapas over looking a waterfall in the warmer months), tubing, horseback riding, petting farms, golf courses, farmers' markets and home-baked goods, antique stores, flea markets, snow tubing, skiing, and a family fun park.

Getting around

You really need a car to get around. Unless you opt to take a taxi from the Hawley bus station, short line bus from Port Authority for about $30 one-way.

This cabin is absolutely divine. We were 6 friends catching up on a weekend away. The cabin is even more beautiful than the photos. A cosy fireplace and large living space inside with 3 bedrooms, two bathrooms felt roomy enough of us all. Plus the downstairs basement with ping pong table kept the boys amused. Caitlin was easy and fast with communication and offered so many tips on the area for exploring - but to be honest - the cabin was so amazing we didn't venture far! We did walk to the nearby lake which is beautiful, and the area is wooded and secluded. We saw deer every night who were very friendly and so lovely to watch :) And the outside fire pit added to the camp authenticity. Bare in mind, it is a cabin in the wilderness so there are some basic rules to follow such as not leaving trash outside for animals to find - but really, not an issue at all. Thank you for an amazing stay, Caitlin, we will definitely be back!

Caitlin is a wonderful host! She is super easy to contact and gives excellent, super detailed suggestions. My friends and I wanted to get away from the city for spring break and could not have found a cozier place to stay!

Camp Caitlin is a great place to get away with friends. It is stocked with all your kitchen needs, and has plenty of indoor and outdoor space. There are two bathrooms, which really helps with any morning shower/use congestion, and the indoor and outdoor fire places means you can spend most of the weekend with the flames. It is a bit of a hike to the casinos and pocono attractions, but the value of this place makes it worth it. Also, Caitlin has some pretty cool taste. The place has a record player, an original Nintendo with a little tv, plenty of cactuses to keep you company, and furniture that all has great vintage style. Thanks for a great weekend, Cait!

This was a great weekend getaway with friends. The open loft space and big windows were great. Everything was labeled and we had access to everything from linens to the folded towels on each bed. The ping pong table was an added bonus! We were a 15 minute drive from nice restaurants and bars in the Poconos area. Overall a great experience and my friends and I would love to return in the summer to enjoy the grill and lakes!

Hello there!
I'm originally from Kansas but I've been living in Brooklyn since 2008. I live in a very cute little sleep away camp like loft in in bushwick and although it's my favorite place in the world right now I'm constantly on the road for work or visiting friends.
