Relax by the calming mountain creek, in warm bubbling jacuzzi/whirlpool, at the fireplace or the fire pit, watch a movie from our 43 DVDs collection. Enjoy!

The community is only 15 minutes drive to the ski resort, to the river beach, water rafting and water sports, horseback riding, zip lining, aerial adventures ropes course, incredible hiking and biking trails and famous Bushkill Falls.
Situated in the great mountain private gated community it offers best of both worlds: you are so close to great amenities and still feel being in a private and remote area, in nature and by the streaming water. While you can see the houses not far on both sides you rarely see people here.
The house is clean, airy and cozy. It's a basic mountain country vacation house, simple, perfectly imperfect, inviting, low-key, with rather secluded and private feel. With the last memories of the rapidly becoming a history retro times, it's somewhat still living in good old sweet early 1980s. It has cathedral A-frame shillings with open wooden beams, wood burning fireplace and jacuzzi/whirlpool for two.
The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Master bedroom upstairs has a queen size bed, tall ceilings, jacuzzi/whirlpool tub for two and the balcony that facing the creek! Outside of the master bedroom is a loft with a large skylight. Perfect for stargazing and counting clouds! :)
The first floor has two bedrooms with full-size beds and a full bath with a shower. The house also has a twin floor mattress and three twin air beds.
The living room has a leather sofa sleeper full-size bed with a loveseat, wood burning fireplace, and deck off dining area with the view of the Saw Creek stream. It is best suited for singles and groups of 6-8 people, though it can accommodate up to 10 people.
The Eating Area
The house has a counter isle, a coffee table, summer deck table with chairs and equipped with folding tables and chairs for customizable sitting arrangements.
The Cooking Area
The kitchen is a full kitchen, well equipped with everything. If you are planning a grand cookout & looking for lots of kitchen space please see the photos, it’s a vacation style, L shaped one.
Outside you'll find a gas and charcoal grills, two fire pits, the deck with table, chairs, and umbrella, water deck with seating and sunbathing benches, and two benches along the creek by the water.
The creek in the backyard is the actual Saw Creek. There also is a second miniature one in the front yard. Do you like to hear tree frogs singing? They may sing for you here.
If you'd like to do some yoga by the water or in the house we have a couple of yoga mats for you to use. You may also find useful our additional exercising equipment and tools that are available at the house.
If you have a romantic side, come to stay at our cabin and enjoy being surrounded by nature, the calming sounds and views of the rolling water, the birds, crickets, far away wind chimes, occasional forest rain, and frogs. Unwind in the bubbling Jacuzzi. At night gaze at the absolutely amazing here stars in these deep clear mountain skies. Watch the various wildlife when it decides to visit. Curious deer, funny turkeys, various birds and living beings are passing by at times. We have seen all sorts of wildlife here, even bears and a black mink. They are locals here and they don't bother human locals. Just don't bother them!
It's a perfect place for you if you are feeling tired, for healing yourself, for meditation and yoga.
If you need to pause, unlink and detach from the world, to recharge, to step back in time where it moves slower and there is plenty of it to take good care for yourself, or to JUST BE, this is exactly for you. It's a right choice for a long vacation or a weekend trip, to reconnect with self and nature, or for the time together with your special ones. You will feel right at home here.
This place is great for idealists and dreamers :)
Please be aware: if you are looking for a vacation place that is super modern, upbeat, fully connected with the outside world, well equipped with all the techs & toys, and with a typical hotel style of service or settings, this is not for you! :)
This is Not a very ‘typical’ vacation house, if that’s what you are looking for. Please read the description, it’s all here.
If you are looking to throw a loud party this is a wrong place to rent. The neighborhood, the house, and the surroundings are quiet and intended for peace and quiet. If you will be having a party, please be super respectful to the house, property and the neighborhood***. Thank you!
Please know this is NOT a good place to get wasted or stoned. Go away. Peace.
The house is not a new modern house, so please be respectful and neat. House is very clean and maintained on the weekly basis by our great cleaning and maintenance service personnel. If you need anything please let us know. The cleaning service who can help are generally around if needed.

The Gated Community
The Saw Creek Estates is a tranquil, private, 24 hr. well-guarded gated community. It is located in the Delaware State Forest, right at the bank of Delaware River, near Bushkill Falls State Park and Smithfield Beach National Recreation Area.

It's very easy to reach from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Newark airport (1:40 hrs.)

Q.: Is there Wi-Fi and Cable TV? How is the Mobile reception?
A.: The house has Wi-Fi Internet. There is no landline phone and no cable TV. We have 54 DVDs at the house and you can bring or rent locally your owns as well.

Q.: Do we need to bring linens and towels?
A.: Linens are provided. You also may bring your own extras if you'd like. As for the towels it will be a great help if you’ll bring your own bath and pool towels, but you don’t have to. If you prefer, just ask and we will provide.
Q.: Is there a dining room?
A.: The everyday dining area consists of the kitchen bar and the coffee table. While there is no formal dining room with a dining table, we have three folding tables that can be used in the main room. One table is 6 feet long, and two are 4 feet long.

A.: You are in the woods. There are bugs in the woods. :) Naturally. We go an extra mile to keep the house and surroundings very clean and well taken care of. We have citronella candles and even a bug spray. You still may meet an occasional spider, ant, mosquito, caterpillar, butterfly, etc. :)
Q.: How far are the other houses?
A.: The property is a part of the quiet private gated community that is located in the heart of Delaware State Forest. So the houses are near by. Nevertheless the place is woody, peaceful and quiet. It is on 1.6 acres of land. If you are looking for a very remote location where you are very far away from any houses or civilization this is not a right place for that. Again, it's in the private gated community. Also, you can see the closest house on the main photo on the left.
Q: What time are check-in and check-out and can we extend our stay?
A.: The check-in is after 4:00 pm, the check-out is at 11:00 am. Earlier check-in and late check-out is subject of availability and an additional charge and usually not available. Additional days may be available depending on the week.

Q: How many cars can we bring?
A: You can park 4 cars on the driveway. Additional parking is available on a public parking lot nearby.
Q: Can we rent if we are under 25?
A: With some exceptions, we normally don’t rent to folks under 25. Simply because kids usually remain kids and don't understand the rules and what is expected of them. If you are a more mature group and good with house rules please let us know.
