1st timers to Poconos....what area to stay?

We are looking to rent a cabin/house for a weekend. Looking to go canoeing/kayaking & hiking. I'm overwhelmed by the Poconos...I don't know which area to start.

You may want to stay in Jim Thorpe. It's at the lower end of the Poconos. Nice little town with some options for lodging. There are trails along former rail lines leading out of town and other activities nearby. Just a suggestion.

Enjoy your visit.
