Since first becoming a tourist destination in 1829, the Pocono Mountains' hospitality industry has blossomed. Log cabins provide a traditional-style lodging from which visitors can explore this scenic region.
State Park Shelters
Situated in the western foothills of the Poconos, Hickory Run State Park at White Haven offers three log camping cottages and three deluxe camping cottages. Both types provide bunks for sleeping up to five campers. The units have no running water or bathrooms, but potable water and pit toilets are located nearby. The campground's modern restrooms and showers are available to cottage guests. All units have heat and lights. Deluxe units offer a kitchen stove top and refrigerator. The park spans nearly 16,000 acres, encompassing 40 miles of trails and a boulder site designated a National Natural Landmark. Promised Land State Park at Greenland sits on the Pocono Plateau. A dozen rustic log cabins in the Bear Wallow Cabin Colony sleep two to four guests. Amenities include electricity, a stove, refrigerator, outdoor fire rings and an adjacent private bathroom. Dogs are welcome at two of the cabins for an additional fee. Both parks rent cabins from mid-April into December.
Cabins for Resorting
Mountain Springs Lake Resort at Reeders nestles beside a tranquil spring-fed lake. Its selection of log cabins ranges from comfortable, tastefully decorated two- and three-bedroom standard units sleeping up to six people, to three-bedroom luxury cabins with private bathrooms for each bedroom. All cabins have a kitchen, bathroom, fireplace, air conditioning and cable. Guests have access to resort recreation without charge. Perks include use of a rowboat for fishing on the stocked lake, two swimming beaches, a 2-mile nature trail, a play area, tennis court and ping pong room. While some cabins are unavailable during winter months, others provide a base for resort winter activities, including cross-country skiing and sledding.
Overnights at Nature's Door
Five waterfalls, nature trails and paddling opportunities are merely steps away from the cheery cabins at Babbling Brooks located at Dingman's Ferry. Sitting a mere 75 yards from George W. Child's Recreation Site, cabins immerse guests in Pocono beauty. Three log and wood slab units sit beneath a green forest canopy. Cabins sleep two, four or eight guests. The smaller unit has a microwave and refrigerator. Larger units offer kitchens. Each provides a bathroom and inviting living area. Call for winter availability, seasonal rates and advance registration.
Family Camping Cabins
Foxwood Family Campground at East Stroudsburg keeps the good times rolling with a schedule of activities. Cabin guests enjoy hayrides, arts and crafts, swimming, bingo, horseshoes, volleyball, mini golf and themed weekends celebrating holidays, military members, moms and dads. Two-room log cabins sleep two adults and two children. Amenities include a refrigerator, microwave, outdoor grill, fire pit and picnic table. Two-bedroom log-sided mountaintop units offer lodging for four or six guests. Both include a kitchen but you must bring your own bedding and towels. Foxwood units rent from April 15 to October 15.
