The HikeAway is a cozy cabin nested in the Delaware State Forest, minutes from the Bushkill Falls, the Delaware River and Water Gap. The cabin is located in a gated community, well balanced between woods isolation and plenty of amenities. Saw Creek Estates is one of the top rated communities in the Poconos, with 2 lakes, 3 swimming pools, ski-lift on the ski slope, tennis, basketball and racquetball courts, gym, and a friendly bar & restaurant at Top of the World. There are over 3,000 cabins in the Community, immersed in nature and with a laid back, old time pace feeling.
The location is not remote, but quiet enough to make us feel in total relax even if we come from nothing less than the hustle and bustle of Lancaster, PA, Amish country. Wildlife is abundant as we have spotted, from our Bistro patio or the other two patios in the house, plenty of deer, raccoons, minks, wild turkeys, and an interesting fella who looks like a solid black squirrel.
Trails in the Forest and Delaware Water Gap are phenomenal, starting from the Appalachian Trail that runs nearby. A few minutes from Shawnee Mountain and the small borough, and 30 minutes from Milford and its Hallmark-movie feeling, and Stroudsburg.
