  • Weekend Getaway


    We had a wonderfully relaxing weekend. The house and the property were excellent. (The ducks were cute and fun to watch while having our morning coffee on the porch.)Close access to a lot of great activities. Can't wait to go back.

  • Comfortable cottages, relaxing setting


    Very new cottages with quality furnishing and amenities. Good location for visiting the ski resorts, the historic towns and many eastern PA attractions. There are many dining options within 20-30 min. If you want to cook, they have what you need. Hiking the AT or many local trails is very close including a local trail leaving from the property.The pictures include aerial views showing the multiple cottages on-site. If you have one in mind, contact the owners and they will help make sure you get exactly what you want. They are very helpful and have built a great getaway. Our favorite diversion was Blue Ridge Winery. Good wine, food, live music and more.

  • Beauty in Brodheadsville


    An exceptional stay in new, modern cottage on 50 acres near the Delaware Water Gap and Jim Thorpe. The Blakeslee's are terrific hosts who take great care and pride in their cottages, the ponds and the entire surrounding land. Easy access and secluded without feeling isolated. Definitely recommend staying in any of the properties.

  • Perfect place to stay for our family reunion


    I had a family reunion in the area, and Split Creek Preserve made the weekend just perfect. The cottage was so comfortable, and I was amazed by the kitchen amenities -- I cook a lot, and boy, it's not often you find a kitchen so well-stocked! Make sure you check out the trout ponds and make friends with the ducks -- the white ones are pretty tame and friendly. The porch has a great view of the ponds and birds. We got quite a wildlife show one morning, when an osprey flew down and caught a trout, and swooped around for a few minutes overhead, until he caught an updraft to a high branch. Then he went to town enjoying his lunch! That was great. Look out for the bald eagles, herons, wild ducks and more. Just a beautiful place and I look forward to coming back for a longer stay sometime. Thanks so much!
