Welcome to Birchview Homestead! Make memories with your friends & family in our game room by challenging them to 39 arcade classics plus foosball. We spared no expense on modern upgrades, including updated appliances, new furniture, spa quality linens, and three kayaks! Either venture out and explore the Poconos or stay in our gated community and enjoy a variety of amenities: lakes, pools, tennis and basketball courts, a walking trail and a clubhouse. We're just a 10 minute walk to 3 lakes!

The space
Our 3-bedroom bi-level home can accommodate up to a max of 8 guests comfortably, offering separate spaces for your guests. A full-size bathroom with tiled shower is located on each level. Each bedroom is outfitted with a comfortable pillowtop queen mattress with an adjustable base plus a 32” flat-screen TV with an Amazon Firestick. The home is integrated with Amazon Alexa, meaning you can easily control lights, listen to music, and play videos and games all with just your voice.

Our spacious kitchen has enough room for multiple people at the same time, featuring all necessary appliances for even longer stays. Everyone will love to hang out at our large white granite island. Just outside the kitchen is our walk out deck that overlooks the forest. You are likely to see a variety of different wildlife roaming through our backyard; deer especially love our community!

Want to play some Pac-Man or challenge your guests to 38 other arcade classics? Our basement is the place to be with 39 arcade games on 7 different arcade cabinets, plus a 4-player foosball table, meaning everyone in your group can play at the same time! Our basement also sports a 55” 4K Amazon Fire TV with a DVD player, Nintendo Switch dock, and a Nintendo Wii U. A large 8-foot table will be the gathering place for cards, board games and takeout. Outside offerings include a firepit, Ninja Warrior play course for kids (recommend age is 5-10), a swing set (ages 3-10), a cornhole set, and outdoor furniture.

Free access to community amenities is also included with your stay. Our community has 5 lakes, in which we are a short walk to 3 of them, and we have 3 kayaks your group can use (April 1 - October 31), all conveniently located at the largest lake! The community also has 2 pools, basketball courts, tennis courts, and a walking trail. Arrange for a lakeside family picnic with your group at community grills, picnic tables, and playgrounds located throughout the community! To help you even further, the Help section of our website has information on all of the amenities, including photos and directions to each, and we provide a map of the community.

Our house is conveniently located close to many main attractions of the Poconos area, yet it still feels secluded and private. Local activities include skiing, hiking, paintball, mountain biking, horseback riding, fishing, racing and hunting. There are numerous wineries and breweries to check out, Pocono Raceway and Mt. Airy casino are both just a short drive, and the Tannersville Outlets are close as well.

Where you’ll be

Albrightsville, Pennsylvania, United States

Our immediate neighborhood includes a few neighbors and a lot of trees. We are in the middle of a forest in the Pocono Mountains. There's a reason we named our house Birchview Homestead (but you'll see a lot more than just multiple varieties of birch trees!) We are just several blocks away from multiple lakes. You will likely have multiple wildlife sightings, including deer and turkey. We are a 3 minute drive to 4 lakes, including:
-Main Lake: This is the largest of our community's lakes and is where our kayaks are located. Great place for swimming, kayaking, laying out in the sun, and playing. The area includes a beach, playgrounds, basketball courts, and the clubhouse.
- Boulder Lake: a serene area, perfect for a family picnic, place to swim, lay out in the sun, or take a nice walk! The area includes a beach, charcoal grill, playgrounds, and a set of horseshoe pits.
- Fishing Lake: a small lake but great for fishing and taking a peaceful walk!
- Twin Lake: another small lake which is great for walking and sight-seeing. Playgrounds and picnic tables available.

We are self-employed entrepreneurs who fell in love with the Poconos on a family getaway. We spent several years working towards our goal of finding a great property to create family memories for years. We have a passion for hard work and for providing great customer service. This led us to the realization that we could take our dream and share it with others who travel to the Poconos. Hence, Pocono Homesteads LLC was born. When we are not actively engaged with Pocono Homesteads, we are busy with our other business, The Shabby Store. We sell custom refinished home decor (some of which you'll see in our home!) on Etsy and our website. Our Etsy store is in the top .1% of all Etsy shops in the world, an accomplishment we are incredibly proud of. We work hard to help our customers make their home more fun and functional. Check us out by searching The Shabby Store!
