Where you’ll be

Columbia, New Jersey, United States

Quiet, residential road, with Brook Hollow Winery on one end and horse farms on the other. Most homes in Knowlton are set on 2-5 acre lots, so lots of green space and farms. We are located just off Exit 4 on Route 80. There is never traffic in our area. When there is Pocono traffic at the Delaware Water Gap and in PA, we know all the ways around it.

Ice Cream, Pubs, Grill: located 5 minutes away.

Grocery and Convenience Store: Portland Market is 5 minutes away. It has a small deli and produce section. It carries package goods, meats as well as frozen foods and dairy.

Travel Center with Gas and Fast Food 3 minutes away.

The Stroudsburgs are located 10 minutes away and have all stores of a typical city.

We are lifelong residents of beautiful North West New Jersey - dating, marrying and raising our children here. When our family no longer needed our guest suite as much, we felt it was time to share it with others. We sincerely look forward to helping make your visit to the beautiful Poconos/North West New Jersey a memorable one. Our greatest accomplishment has been helping our children develop into happy, healthy adults. Our daughter after graduating from the University of Miami has chosen to stay near the ocean life she went to learn about. Our son, after graduating from High Point University, and post grad at Providence College found a career he loves - heavy highway work. Chris is over 30 years experienced in civil/heavy highway construction, building and rebuilding bridges, rails and roads in NJ and NY. Weekends you will often find him riding his bike, cycling up and down the hills of North Jersey and The Poconos. Vacation days he is scuba diving wrecks and reefs all over the world often with our daughter. Tara is a retired soccer referee. Beautifying our yard and home and spending time with and on horses are her current passions. Our Basset/Australian Cattle Dog Mix lives in our fenced in yard. When he is not being a couch potato, likes playing fetch with his tennis balls and getting belly rubs. When we have guests he stay in the fenced off front yard so the back is your private oasis....unless you wish for doggie visits. We look forward to being available to learning about you and your interests, if you would like help customizing your county mountain escape.
