Merry and Bright
Colorful, cheerful, and designed to make guests feel treasured, our Pocono Christmas rentals offer all the conveniences of home without the addition of cranky distant relatives! Put together a gingerbread house in the fully equipped kitchen, bake some Christmas cookies, or prepare a simple meal for the holiday repast. The dining room table can be used for wrapping last-minute gifts while the kids are playing video games in their rooms, and the living areas are the perfect place to play a game of charades or watch a holiday show on the flat-screen television located above many of our fireplaces. Dreams filled with sugarplums come easy in our cloud-soft beds; snuggle under warm blankets that feel soft against your skin and see how quickly morning arrives. Mom and Dad can even enjoy a soak in the hot tub on the deck of some our homes while the youngsters are sleeping.
What’s Under the Tree?
Christmas day can be a quiet one spent opening presents and playing with new toys, or it can be a day filled with outdoor adventures in the snow. Slip into your winter coats and boots and hike along the Lehigh Gorge State Park Trail or take a ride on the Santa Express in Stroudsburg; the last ride with Santa ends on December 23rd, so plan on doing this activity before Christmas!
Explore the history of Stroudsburg with a visit to Grey Towers Historic National Landmark. Enjoy the traditional holiday decorations that adorn all three floors of the mansion constructed in 1886 before finishing off the afternoon with a cozy and hearty dinner for two at the Sarah Street Grill. Located at 550 Quaker Alley, the intimate atmosphere and varied menu served here has made this charming grill a favorite for more than a couple of decades.
For those staying closer to Jim Thorpe, maybe in one of our Pocono Christmas rentals, a visit to Jingle Bells, located at 12 Race Street, will keep the holiday spirit alive. This charming Christmas store offers holiday décor you can use during your stay and then pack up to bring home as a souvenir from your Christmas vacation in the Poconos. The Stone Row Pub & Eatery, also located in Jim Thorpe at 45 Race Street, offers a festive spot to get off your feet and enjoy a holiday beverage. They may not offer eggnog or mulled wine, but a mug of Organic Chocolate Stout goes down extra smooth at this time of year!
No Figgy Pudding Here!
Ok, we admit it, we have absolutely no idea what figgy pudding is, but when hunger pangs strike on Christmas day, you aren’t going to be stuck in front of the stove in the kitchen of your Pocono Mountain Rentals vacation escape; a winter holiday buffet held at the Kalahari Resorts & Convention Center in Pocono Manor offers a reasonably priced meal featuring your favorite holiday treats! Turkey, prime rib, roast chicken and all the trimmings are included in this delicious Christmas in the Poconos dinner.
For those who fall in love with the charm of our holiday escapes and want to prepare a Christmas dinner, pick up the ingredients at a local grocery store and spend the holiday cooking to your heart’s content! Our fully equipped kitchens are bright, spacious, and designed to make meal prep easy and fun. Maybe this will be the holiday your teenage daughter will show a desire to learn your grandmother’s secret gingerbread recipe, continuing the tradition for another generation.
