This is truly a family place to take your kids for fishing. The food is always very good and you never walk away hungry. The folks that run the place and great. The place is old but updating all the time. The price is very reasonable. Shared bathrooms.

Buehler’s Idlewild Inn proved to be the perfect venue for celebrating my wife’s surprise 50th birthday party weekend with 18 of her closest East Coast friends. I had contacted Mary and Mark (the proprietors) about the farmhouse more than a year prior to the weekend I wanted to reserve after performing an exhaustive search for venues within a 3-hour drive from NYC that could accommodate upwards of 18 people. None of the places I researched seemed “just right” until I stumbled across the farmhouse during a late-night research session. The description of Buehler’s evoked fond memories of summer camps from my youth - lots of activities available (game room, tennis, basketball, volleyball, badminton, hiking, etc.), access to a lake with rowboats, canoes, and paddle boats, and all meals included. From the first contact I had with Mary and Mark (via e-mail), I could sense that I had made the correct choice for my wife’s event. My inquiries about the farmhouse and my general anxieties about planning such an ambitious event from a distance (California) were calmed by Mary’s prompt replies, patience with my endless questions, and a gracious manner. Fast forward to the actual event… I arrived with my wife and son at the farmhouse on a Friday afternoon, and upon arrival, I was taken aback by the beauty, peace, and homey feel of the place. Others felt the same way as they arrived. The online photos do not do it justice. It was a bit odd to finally meet Mary and Mark, as I almost felt as if I knew them from all of the online dialogue! The weekend was more than what I could have hoped for. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and it was so luxurious to have meals prepared and beds made! The food was excellent and enjoyed by everyone, no small task when dealing with 18 disparate palates. Mark cuts no corners with the menu, all three meals per day were outstanding, and no one left the table hungry. During the day between meals, people spread out across the property, taking advantage of all that Buehler’s has to offer. Some went swimming, some spent some time on the lake, others played horseshoes, while a few did nothing but lay around and enjoy much needed down time. The true level of enjoyment and satisfaction by all during our stay at Buehler’s can be measured by a unanimous desire by everyone to return for a longer period of time. As part of this group, I hope we do!

The other reviews are spot on. Buehler's Idlewild offers families everything they could want in a relaxing vacation. The kids and bigger kids enjoyed the various activities including the lake, pool, large grass play area, game room, tennis court and farm. Also, the meals cooked up by Mark, Mary and company were great. They even set up a movie theater in the game room on a rainy day. They also handle the little requests with no problem or fuss. Great times and great memories for our group of about 20 that ranged from the grandparents down to the toddlers.

A wonderful place to spend with family and friends. A very relaxing pocono get away to sit back and relax at the pool with a beer or two while while Mark & Mary prepare three excellent meals. You even get dessert with lunch. Fishing, hiking, swimming and farm animals Buehler's Idlewild has it all. Can't wait to go back next year.
