Our Holiday Homes
To be honest, there really isn’t any difference between our Poconos Thanksgiving rentals and our everyday rentals; they are all spacious, bright, and cheerful spaces guests fall in love with, but at the holidays they do seem to attain an added glow. The kitchen becomes a space to create a feast and laugh and chat with your teenagers, while watching holiday movies in front of a roaring fire in the living areas becomes a magical experience. Happy dreams are the only ones accepted in bedrooms that are designed to ensure a sleep so deep you’ll wish you could recreate it at home! Hot tubs on the back porch of many of our rentals become the meeting place at night. As the steam rises into the cold night, millions of stars blink down on you, and aside from your own conversation, the silence makes you happy that you decided to do Thanksgiving a little differently this year.
Luxurious Comfort That Spoils
It’s the little luxuries that make these special homes the perfect holiday escapes: granite countertops in the kitchen, plush furnishings in the public areas that invite you to sink into them and stay a little longer than planned, and the opportunity to play a game of pool with your fellow night owl teenager at 3 AM. These moments will be the ones he remembers years down the road when he has his own night owl for a child! Views from the back decks will take your breath away and huddling around the firepit after the Thanksgiving feast has long been finished is another special moment you won’t ever forget!
Let Someone Else Prepare Your Feast
The kitchens in our homes are fully equipped, but that doesn’t mean you have to prepare the feast yourself; you’re on vacation too, and there are plenty of places in the Poconos offering Thanksgiving meals that will be prepared, served, and cleaned up after by other people! The Dock on Wallenpaupack at 205 Route 507 in Wallenpaupack offers a family style feast with all the trimmings for far less than you would pay for the ingredients if you were to make it yourself!
After the Turkey
Dining out on vacation is always a treat, even after a big Thanksgiving feast, and when you spend a day Black Friday shopping, chances are you’ll be doubly ready for a big meal! And because contrasts are fun, going from your All American Thanksgiving meal to a fresh, hot, and spicy Mexican meal at Mi Casa in Mount Pocono, will be one of your favorite choices of your trip. Offering authentic treats from South of the Border, the unlimited chips and salsa will help fill you up fast but be sure to save room for tacos; even at Thanksgiving, it’s always the right time for tacos!
With the Taste of Pumpkin Pie Still Fresh in Your Mind
The conclusion of the feast doesn’t mean all the good times have ended, especially knowing that as soon as you put down that fork and push away from the table, the Christmas season will have officially started! Take advantage of Black Friday deals at many of the local stores, sticking close to your home away from home in Lake Harmony with a visit to Terra Cotta Cottage and Gifts or venturing a little further out to explore all that the Poconos has to offer. A new piece of pottery for your mother who still fancies herself a flower child from the days of peace and love can be found at Holly Ross Pottery in LaAnna, an exquisite piece of art or first edition book can be purchased for the bibliophile and artist in your family at Sellers Books & Fine Art in Jim Thorpe, and a sweet smelling and decorative candle can be purchased for the lovely lady watching your fur baby while you’re on vacation at House of Candles in Pocono Mountains. The joy of gift giving will be made that much better with the views of the Poconos during your explorations!
