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.

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!
