Stay Warm on the Coldest of Winter Days
Constructed of sturdy materials, our Poconos winter rentals are designed to keep our guests feeling warm and protected from the elements, offering spacious, fully equipped kitchens that are perfect for whipping up a pot of soup, living areas with soft furnishings and fireplaces to add romance to a quiet evening in, and bedrooms where the bedding is more than just a pretty accessory. Winters can be cold; snuggling into a warm blanket after a long day of outdoor activities is our favorite way to drift off into dreamland!
Many of our Poconos winter rentals offer luxury amenities to keep you occupied on those days you just want to stay home and relax. Enjoy game rooms with pool and foosball tables, theater rooms with large reclining seats and all the popcorn you care to make, or even a hot tub on the deck. The feel of snowflakes falling lightly on your nose as you simmer in the bubbling water is an experience you will never forget!
As Much as You Want to Stay In
There’s a whole world to explore outside the boundaries of your winter escape that you’re not going to want to miss! During the Christmas season, the East Stroudsburg Winterfest and Tree Lighting Ceremony is a popular attraction, but for those who aren’t into group activities, a simple hike through the woods can be the high point of your entire stay. Maintaining a stark and rugged beauty, the photos taken during your nature hike will never cease to amaze. If you’re on the trail to Raymondskill Falls, just outside Milford, the sight of the icy splash over the rocks will be one picture you’ll want to frame and hold in your heart forever.
Winter sports such as snow tubing, skiing, snowboarding, or even ice skating are popular activities for the majority of our guests. If it’s been a while since you’ve ice skated, or if you have never tried the sport, the ice skating rink in Ann Street Memorial in Milford will give you the carefree and romantic experience you never knew you were missing! Promised Land State Park in Greentown offers more places to test your ice skating skills; just be careful, as the skating areas in the park are not monitored.
Another beloved holiday event, the Jim Thorpe Olde Time Christmas, takes place from December 7 through December 22 and offers a nostalgic holiday experience with another chance to enjoy the lighting of a Christmas tree, shopping for special gifts, and the sweet sounds of Christmas performed by carolers dressed in period costumes. Your children won’t be able to contain their excitement when they learn that they can actually ride a train with Santa and get their picture taken with the jolly old elf. And if they happen to ask for that special gift they have been dreaming about, it could very well appear under their tree!
Sparkling Eyes, Flushed Cheeks, and an Empty Stomach
Spending all this time outdoors will bring out the twinkle in your eyes and start the hunger pangs in earnest, and we love to see guests with hearty appetites as there are plenty of places in the region that will fill the void! 403 Broad, conveniently located at 403 Broad Street in Milford, is known throughout the area for providing hearty comfort food at reasonable prices. They aren’t open on Monday and Tuesdays, but the delicious dishes they serve make it worth waiting until Wednesday to visit!
Offering a starter menu that includes Meatballs al Sugo, Nonna’s Sunday salad, and antipasto, they also offer a Sunday Brunch menu that includes whole wheat pancakes topped with blackberry syrup and Bacon Cruncharito made from soft fried bacon, scrambled eggs, and hash browns. Filling and delicious, it’s our go-to brunch dish on a cold winter’s day! The dinner menu is varied and contains not just starters, but snacks, pizza, pasta, and a delicious vegan burger that will make the eyes of the vegetarian in your group sparkle even more brightly!
Open every day and featuring a full bar with an extensive wine and beer list, the warm ambience has every guest feeling as if they were an integral art of the 403 Broad Street family—doesn’t everyone need a place like that in their lives?
