What a great place! We tr to get away every 3 months or so to reconnect with each other and disconnect from the stress of the day to day. My husband found this lovely place when he did a random google search. I was beyond skeptical, to be honest, but I really just wanted to get away. Besides, the cabin... More

Jane was wonderful with our long distance planning and endless questions for our stay in May. SO chose the Brookside for a week of "alone time" to just kick back and enjoy spending time together. The Brookside exceeded our expectations. The clean lines of the interior, passthrough fireplace, outdoor hammock, back deck, and its location along the brook make this... More

This place was so peaceful the tent sites are quite large and private easy access to the river. The deer walking through the sites and the views of the bald eagles were breathtaking. Very friendly host.

My husband and I spent 5 days here for our anniversary/summer vacation. We love the Delaware river, and this was the perfect spot to enjoy it. The cabins are all great, but I loved our cabin. It was clean and cozy, and felt like home instantly. Jane is a great hostess. Every detail was carefully considered, leaving us without a... More

We have been camping with Jane and John McKay for years now. We look forward to coming up here every year. The camp sites are comfortable, the people who camp here are not loud, or obnoxious, making every trip relaxing and enjoyable. The facilities by the river make it easier to camp with younger children. The brook sites are much... More

Just a short note to say we had another great stay at Bluestone at Sylvania Country Lodging. This was our second visit to Bluestone and everything was perfect just like last year. Jane is a really great hostess and had our fireplace set-up ready-to-go when we arrived. The house was pristine and the location is unbeatable. We awoke to 5... More

Really enjoyed the Hermitage cabin. Jane and family are great. Would recommend to anyone looking for a convenient cabin renting experience in the Poconos. Beautiful property. Better than the resort experience.

If what you want are a panalopy of scheduled activities, a lake, and an all-inclusive meal plan, this is not the place for you or your family. If what you enjoy being in a secluded woods, with a babbling brook just outside your doorstep and a short walk to the Delaware, incredibly well-kept cabins, and a warm, helpful and absolutely...

My husband and I wanted to go somewhere truly special for our anniversary, and it was by happy accident that I stumbled on Sylvania Country Lodging. I decided this would be the perfect place to get away in the Poconos. We didn't want any cheesy tourist trap resorts. Just someplace private, quiet, and cozy. Turtleshell was everything we could have... More

After deciding less than 2 weeks before our anniversary to go away, we were happy to learn the Turtleshell cabin was available! We rented it for a 3 night weekend and loved it! Everything was as written or pictured on the website. The ownwers,John & Jane were very helpful with suggestions of where to go, things to do, dining and... More
