Note that we no longer allow more than 14 people for this house. All guests have to be registered with Saw Creek Estates. In addition, regardless of where the guests are coming from or when, you will have to figure out how to fit those 14 guests into no more than 5 cars. We will only register 5 drivers at the front gates.
This large 3,700 sq ft house has 5 bedrooms, 1 loft, 3 full baths and 2 large living rooms. In addition, you have a deck off the living room, a huge additional 1000 sq ft playroom/gym/basement and enough parking for 5 cars.
This large house is located inside Saw Creek Estate, a gated community with four full-size outdoor swimming pools, two indoor pools and many, many more amenities (amenity list below). This house also sits right next to the Delaware State Forest which means one side of the house looks onto thousands of acres of woods, including your personal creek within 50 feet of the house. You can also start hiking directly from the house.
The house has 3 large bedrooms with queen sized beds (master suite has its own whirlpool tub and balcony). It also has a large bedroom with 4 twin sized beds (not bunk beds) and an upstairs loft with 2 more twin beds. In addition, there are 4 sofas in the main living room and 2 more sofas in the ground floor living room. The dining room has a massive 9ft long solid wood table that can easily fit 10-12 people.
We have great wifi, cable TV, Netflix and even HBO Go. The basement is a playground for adults and kids alike with ping-pong table, pool table, home gym, dart board and plenty of space for just hanging out.
Amenities include: four full-size outdoor swimming pools, two indoor pools, two kiddie pools, three whirlpool spas, nine tennis courts, two basketball courts, a beach, a fishing pond, a walking trail, a racquetball court, a fitness center with a weight room, a volleyball court, two playgrounds (for ages 12-and-under), an after-school game room that holds children’s arts & crafts programs throughout the summer months, and a regulation-sized baseball field.
And that’s not all. In the winter, Saw Creek’s Ski Hill offers an exhilarating down-hill skiing experience - complete with lessons and rentals. A sleigh riding slope provides an extra measure of winter fun.
Saw Creek’s on-site dining facilities combine exceptional cuisine with outstanding service. Great food, beverages and entertainment are plentiful at the Top of the World Restaurant. There is also a snack bar and a poolside Tiki Bar at Saw Creek, each conveniently located within the community.
Guests have access to the entire house, except for the garage which is used for storage by hosts. In addition, there are 6 amenity badges in the kitchen that give you access to all the amenities of Saw Creek. Additional guest passes can be procured for $5 per person per day. Unfortunately due to Saw Creek policy, guest must provide us with date of use as passes are dated.
In addition to an information binder left on the 2nd floor living room coffee table, we are available via phone for any questions.
Bushkill, PA is home to the famous Bushkill Falls. In addition, you are close to the Delaware Water Gap, the Premium Crossing Outlet mall in Tannersville, Camelback resort (and Camelbeach waterpark) and Mount Airy Casino. There are lots of hiking choices and the white tail deer like to visit often.
The house has a driveway that can fit 5 cars.
We only allow 5 drivers as our driveway only allows 5 cars. This is a gated community and thus drivers' names must be sent to host at least 1 day prior to arrival.
The garage and the closet on the top floor are the only areas guests do not have access to.
Interaction with guests
We respond very fast via AirBnb Messaging but in case of emergencies (problem locking the door, etc), please call Mog directly.
Absolutely no garbage left at the house. We provide you with a document that has all the information on where to throw out garbage.
Absolutely no moving furniture. The house is huge. Moved furniture will be charged $25 per piece of furniture for smaller pieces (chairs, small tables) and $75 for larger pieces (sofas and beds). Do not take the ping pong table apart. We will charge $50 to put it back together and more if there are any damages to it. If you move anything in the house, please put it back where you found it. Anything that you move and that we cannot find, we will charge you for. This includes towels, paintings, games, etc (guests have put towels in closets and we have charged them for it because we did not find the towels until weeks later).
You are a guest in this house so be respectful of it. Everything should be left in the condition it was found in. We provide bedding, luxurious bath towels and a fully equipped kitchen. So unlike many other rental homes where you have to bring your own salt, this house is ready for you to enjoy yourself. There is absolutely no smoking allowed inside the house
We provide the following with the house:
15 white towels (3 for the bathrooms and 12 for individuals - missing, exchanged or soiled towels will be charged at $15 per piece)
6 twin bed sets with two blankets each
4 queen bed sets with two blankets each
12 blue striped bath sheets for outdoor activities
We ask that all linens and used towels be left in the downstairs bathroom. Please count and inspect the towels so that there are no disputes about missing towels/linens. If there's blood/dye/stains that will not come out on towels/linens, you can just take them with you as future guests will not be able to use towels/linens and you will be charged for them. All dishes should be washed. No food should be left in the refrigerator.
Please do not use any of our blankets outside (for picnic etc). There are lots of spiders and insects around the house. We do not need any more insects being brought inside. In addition, grass stains are difficult to get out and you will be charged for any damage to blankets/sheets.
There is a wireless home security installed. There is a cone shaped receiver by the 2nd floor TV that should not be unplugged. The security system is set to “Off" while guests are there and remotely turned on otherwise. You will hear a small ping when certain doors are opened even on the “Off" setting. Please do not be alarmed. If the alarm is set to “Home" or “Away" accidentally, please call us immediately as alarm may go off since code needs to be entered.
Using the grill and fire pit:
We have a huge 55 gallon charcoal grill on the deck and a fire pit about 15 feet from the front door. Please carefully and thoroughly douse any fire in the fire pit with water. We have had several fires come back to life in the middle of the night even after being doused with water due to wind. For the grill, close all the vents (fire needs oxygen) and monitor. Please do not put water in the grill as it will rust.
We spend a lot of time at this house and have outfitted the kitchen to have most of the comforts you would find in your own home. There are plenty of plates, utensils and kitchen appliances. There is a microwave, coffee maker (with coffee liners), ninja blender for all your frozen drinks and 4 slice toaster.
All garbage must be taken to the compactor area (next to the pool and main office on the way in). There is no recycling unfortunately.
We know the house probably fits more than 14 people but we have chosen that group size because we know the house gets a lot of damage when the group gets bigger than that. We've had doors broken and kicked in along with many other house items damaged. Because of this, we charge an extra $100 per additional person above that 14 person limit, regardless of whether they are there for a few hours or not. We own another home down the street and come by regularly to check on the number of people at the house. In the case, that you have more people and you have not gotten our consent first, your rental agreement becomes null and void and you will have to leave the house without a refund.
