Please Note: Parties are Not Allowed.

TIP: To ensure your best vacation experience please actually READ the description before you book :).

Wifi is up to 50mbps and great for ‘work-study-vacation’. Verizon works best, WhatsApp works fine.

Welcome to 'Saw Creek Escape', a very quiet forest home, nestled right between two creeks in lushly wooded settings, only minutes away from beautiful hiking trails!

We hope you and your close ones are doing well and focusing on what’s positive! The state parks with beautiful hiking trails & numerous waterfalls are open and welcome you. :)

Foliage Time 2020: Started already. Amazing hiking. Forecasted to be at its very peak at the end of October. And to be continued.

• The AREA: The house is located in Pike County, PA. What is open: pretty much everything: state parks & forests for hiking, biking, fishing, etc., restaurants for takeouts, supermarkets & food stores, gas stations, pharmacies, etc. The Community’s amenities are also open.

• The HOUSE: WE TAKE YOUR AND OUR SAFETY VERY SERIOUSLY. We keep the house super clean, properly & well sanitized for your comfort and protection. We are carefully following the CDC’s advice and taking special safety measures. We comply with Airbnb Enhanced Cleaning Protocol. We’re taking extra care to properly clean and sanitize the house between reservations, such as airing out the house, cleaning and sanitizing surfaces accordingly to the CDC guidelines, disinfecting frequently touched surfaces as handles, knobs, switches, and such. We have soap, sanitizers, Lysol, and gloves. You can also bring your own favorite supply, simply just in case.

Currently, no decorative pillows or blankets are provided, unless requested, please bring your own. If you need us to provide them or have any questions, simply ask! :)

Provided: linens, sleeping pillows, and towels.

Take outs and groceries deliveries can be arranged and ordered, if you’d like.

• Safety Rules!
Please DO NOT travel & stay home if you or your folks have ANY respiratory illness symptoms!

1. Please wash your hands often with soap for 20 seconds.
2. Sanitizing your cell phone is always a good practice. Lysol wipes are best.
3. Keep 6 feet distance from non-family people when outdoors.

Before you book, we must and will be asking you these days:

1. Do you have any symptoms of any respiratory illness?

2. Travelers entering Pennsylvania from lately higher affected areas/states, are recomended by the governor Wolf and the President to self-quarantine for 14 days. That means to stay at the house & on the property, to bring your groceries with you, to avoid local food shopping, except for takeouts and deliveries, and to keep the minimum 6 feet from people while hiking or around any people. Are you willing to honor the government’s request during your Pennsylvania visit?

• YOUR INPUT: Complying with the safety rules.

• OUR INPUT: We’ve contributed to Airbnb Frontline Fund to help them to house over 100,000 healthcare providers, relief workers, and first responders by providing housing to them for free or with a subsidy. Now at Saw Creek Escape 10% of what we receive from your stay we contribute it to charities with worthy causes, especially organizations related to Feeding America and Open Homes/Mercy Corps.

Thank you for your kind contribution to the world’s wellbeing!

Everything is set to help you to disconnect from the world, have a break, relax, to deeper connect with yourself and close ones, refocus, and recharge. Therefore no cable at the house, by design. We do have WiFi, Zoom works fine. :)

The jacuzzi/whirlpool for two is in the master bedroom. You can open the door to the balcony, look at the forest, and listen to the creek while in the jacuzzi/whirlpool. The hot tub is a part of the clubhouse amenities, not the house, though the clubhouse is closed for now for your protection.

Relax by the calming mountain creek, in warm bubbling jacuzzi/whirlpool, at the fireplace or the fire pit, watch a movie from our 43 DVDs collection. Enjoy!

Warmest thoughts,

(•‿•) For people who don’t like to read house descriptions...
• If you are a group of young folks OR
• If you are specifically looking for a vacation home that fits the words “modern”, “world standard” or “luxury” please READ ”More Details” Before you book. Please also read below, where it marked ’***Important !!!’ Thank you :)

It’s just within 4 minutes drive to the clubhouse with a nice restaurant with a bar and entertainment, and to the most of the amenities. Don’t forget to take full advantage of that, when it's open! You can actually walk to it all. That is if you are up to walking up the hill. :)

More Details:

The Location
Situated in the great mountain private gated community it offers the best of both worlds: you are so close to great amenities and still feel being in a private and remote area, in nature and by the streaming water. While you can see the houses not far on both sides you rarely see people here.

The House
The house is clean, airy, and cozy. It's a basic mountain country vacation house, simple, perfectly imperfect, inviting, low-key, with a semi-secluded and private feel. The nearby houses are usually very quiet as well. With the last memories of the rapidly becoming a history retro times, it's somewhat still living in good old sweet late 1970s-early 1980s and has some of that nostalgic wave. It has cathedral A-frame shillings with open wooden beams, a wood-burning fireplace, and a jacuzzi/whirlpool for two.

The house has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The Master bedroom upstairs has a queen-size bed, tall ceilings, a jacuzzi/whirlpool tub for two, and a balcony that facing the creek! Outside of the master bedroom is a loft with a large skylight. Perfect for stargazing and counting clouds! :)

The first floor has two bedrooms with full-size beds and a full bath with a shower. The house also has a twin floor mattress and three twin air beds.

The living room has a leather sofa sleeper full-size bed with a loveseat, wood-burning fireplace, and deck off dining area with the view of the Saw Creek stream. It is best suited for singles and groups of 6-8 people, though it can accommodate up to 10 people.

The Eating Area
The house has a counter isle, a coffee table, a summer deck table with chairs, and equipped with folding tables and chairs for customizable sitting arrangements.

The Cooking Area
The kitchen is a full kitchen, well equipped with everything. If you are planning a grand cookout & looking for lots of kitchen space please see the photos, it’s a vacation style, L-shaped one.

The Property
Outside you'll find a gas and charcoal grills, two fire pits, a deck with table, chairs, and umbrella, a water deck with seating and sunbathing benches, and three benches along the creek by the water.
The creek in the backyard is the actual Saw Creek. There also is a second miniature one in the front yard. Do you like to hear tree frogs singing? They may sing for you here.

If you'd like to do some yoga by the water or in the house we have a couple of yoga mats for you to use. You may also find useful our additional exercising equipment and tools that are available at the house.

The Mood
If you have a romantic side, come to stay at our cabin and enjoy being surrounded by nature, the calming sounds and views of the rolling water, the birds, crickets, far away wind chimes, occasional forest rain, and frogs. Unwind in the bubbling Jacuzzi. At night gaze at the absolutely amazing here stars in these deep clear mountain skies. Watch the various wildlife when it decides to visit. Curious deer, funny turkeys, various birds, and living beings are passing by at times. We have seen all sorts of wildlife here, even bears and a black mink. They are locals here and they don't bother human locals. Just don't bother them!

It's a perfect place for you if you are feeling tired, for healing yourself, for meditation and yoga.

If you need to pause, unlink and detach from the world, to recharge, to step back in time where it moves slower and there is plenty of it to take good care of yourself, or to JUST BE, this is exactly for you. It's the right choice for a long vacation or a weekend trip, to reconnect with self and nature, or for the time together with your special ones. You will feel right at home here.

This place is great for idealists and dreamers :)


***Important !!!
Please be aware: if you are looking for a vacation place that is super modern, contemporary, fully connected with the outside world, well equipped with all the techs & toys, and with a typical hotel style of service or settings, this is not for you! :)

This is Not a very ‘typical’ vacation house if that’s what you are looking for. This house tends to suit the best professional creative type, couples, and families with reflective kids. Please read the description, it’s all here.

If you are a rowdy gang this is the wrong place to rent. The neighborhood, the house, and the surroundings are quiet and intended for peace and quiet. If you will be having a company, please be super respectful to the house, property, and the neighborhood***. Thank you!

Please know this is NOT a good place to get wasted or stoned. Go away. Peace.

The house is not a new modern house, so please be respectful and neat. House is very clean and maintained on a weekly basis by our great cleaning and maintenance service personnel. If you need anything please let us know. The cleaning service who can help are generally around if needed.

House Rules Overview:
1. The Main House Rule is to read and follow the provided house rules.
2. No negative people are permitted! The Negativity Fee equals your next paycheck.
3. If you need ANYTHING please ask us. The Quiet Suffering Fee goes to charities. :)

To Do in The Area
This location has a lot to offer at any time and in any season. You are in the Delaware State Forest! Plenty of amazing hiking trails in all seasons. Multiple beautiful falls are nearby!

The Gated Community
The Saw Creek Estates is a tranquil, private, 24 hr. well-guarded gated community. It is located in the Delaware State Forest, right at the bank of Delaware River, near Bushkill Falls State Park and Smithfield Beach National Recreation Area. It's close to Shawnee Mountain (15 min.) and Camelback Mountain Resorts (35 min.) and about only 80 miles west of NYC (2:00 hrs.). It's very easy to reach from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Newark airport (1:40 hrs.)
This resort-style community is filled with numerous amenities and activities to choose from, to which you will have full access to. You may want to check out ongoing events or free sports classes.



Q.: Is there Wi-Fi and Cable TV? How is Mobile reception?
A.: The house has Wi-Fi Internet suitable for Zooming. There is no landline phone and no cable TV. We have 54 DVDs at the house and you can bring or rent locally your own as well. If you still want to stream videos or news you can bring your own streaming device, like Roku or FireTVstick. Verizon Wireless has the best reception at this house.

Q.: Do we need to bring linens and towels?
A.: Linens are provided. You also may bring your own extras if you'd like. As for the towels, it will be a great help if you’ll bring your own bath and pool towels, but you don’t have to. If you prefer, just ask and we will provide it.

Q.: Do we need to bring our own pots and pans?
A.: No need to bring your own pots, pans, china, and cutlery. Those are provided. Just please leave it clean and dry for the next guests. You'll need to bring your own paper goods if you are planning to use them.

Q: Early Check-in, Late Check-out? What time are check-in and check-out? Can we extend our stay?
A.: The Check-I time is after 4:00 pm, the check-out is befire 11:00 am. The Early Check-In/ Late Check-Out is generally NEVER available, as the cleaning crew needs ample time to prepare the house for your arrival and for the following guests. Tips: Use that time to explore the area; coordinate an early bags drop-off with the cleaning crew, if needed; book an extra night, if available. On a rare occasion, if the next night or the night before is not booked it can be arranged at an extra charge. Please check the calendar for availability.

Q: Are the pool and hot tub private?
A: We don’t have a pool or hot tub at the house, we have the jacuzzi/whirlpool for two. The pools and the hot tubs are a part of our gated community. They are available only to the members of the community and their guests and will be available to you.

Q.: Is there a dining room?
A.: The everyday dining area consists of the kitchen bar and the coffee table. While there is no formal dining room with a dining table, we have three folding tables that can be used in the main room. One table is 6 feet long, and two are 4 feet long. We have plenty of chairs and stools. Plus we have an outdoor dining table.

Q.: Can we fish in the creek?
A.: Yes. Though you'll get more fish in the designated fishing areas.

Q.: Are there bugs?
A.: You are in the woods. There are bugs in the woods. :) Naturally. We go the extra mile to keep the house and surroundings very clean and well taken care of. We have citronella candles and even a bug spray. You still may meet an occasional spider, ant, mosquito, caterpillar, butterfly, etc. :)

Q: Are the pool and hot tub private?
A: We don’t have a pool or hot tub at the house, we have the jacuzzi/whirlpool for two. The pools and the hot tubs are a part of our gated community. They are available only to the members of the community and their guests and will be available to you.

Q.: How far are the other houses?
A.: The property is a part of the quiet private gated community that is located in the heart of Delaware State Forest. So the houses are nearby. Nevertheless, the place is woody, peaceful, and quiet. Two neighboring houses are 75 and 100+ feet away. Neighbors are non-intrusive and most of the time invisible. Our house is on 1.6 acres of woody land to enjoy. If you are looking for a very remote location where you are very far away from any houses or civilization this is not the right place for that. Again, it's in the private gated community. Also, you can see the closest red house in the photos.

Q: How many cars can we bring?
A: You can park 4 cars on the driveway. Additional parking is available on a public parking lot nearby.

Q: Can we rent if we are under 25?
A: With some exceptions, we normally don’t rent to folks under 25. Simply because kids usually remain kids and don't understand the rules and what is expected of them. If you are a more mature group and good with house rules please let us know.

*** Please read, respect, and follow the simple house and Community rules. They are meant for ensuring your and our mutual best and smoothest experience possible. :) If you are reading this far you are definitely a responsible person and we will be pleased to host you here!!

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask!

We look forward to speaking with you!

Bushkill, Pennsylvania, Verenigde Staten

It's located on the wooded lot in the protected private gated community. It's rather private, secluded and very quiet. Calming place to relax in nature while being close to all you may need. No one bothers you, except for occasional wild life visitors :)

It's very important to me that everyone has a great experience. As a host of my own vacation home or as a traveler and a guest I always strive to do my best to do all I can to insure that. Life is short, let’s make it beautiful and enjoyable. As the most of us I'm a hard worker and love traveling and exploring. Hope our mutual experience is awesome! I'm happy to report that in 95% of the times it's very enjoyable for all. In my experience, most people are very respectful, clean, neat and pleasure to work with! I'm really grateful for that! Interestingly enough it seems that the compliments for cleanliness are coming from the guests who leave the house in the cleanest condition. :) :) ...The other 2.5% are exceeding any expectations. Amazing, but true! Many blessings to them!
