A wonderful, quiet, and secluded escape in the Poconos. Our home is very open and inviting, with tall cathedral ceilings and an open floor plan. Plenty of room to cook, relax, and sit out in the back on the deck or by the fire pit. The back yard is very secluded with no direct view to another home. Relax, and enjoy!

Lo spazio
Welcome to The Velvet Elk!
A Unique and Peaceful Retreat in The Poconos

Located in the very heart of the beautiful Pocono Mountains, our unique home in Pocono Lake is the perfect getaway or escape for both families as well as a romantic stay for couples. Bordered on all sides by shaded woods and a thick nature preserve, it is a calm and serene locale with an incredibly private back yard, as long as you don't mind the deer and wild turkey that cross through now and again! All viewable from our plant-speckled sunroom or newly built outdoor deck. There is a fantastically large 10 foot farm table in the sunroom for comfortable dining or game night by the blue flickering flame of the gas stove. The house is decorated in all directions with vintage radios and projectors and old movie posters. Lots of decorative lighting as well. It's a great vibe to spend a weekend or longer surrounded by.

Just 90 minutes from either New York City or Philadelphia, it is an easily accessible and short drive to the rolling dirt road leading to our house. There is a large U-shaped driveway, and a carport is available to accommodate your vehicle as well. This really is a remarkable and special place.

PLEASE NOTE - THIS IS NOT MEANT TO BE A PARTY HOUSE. Though it is very spacious and accommodating to family and friends, it is meant as a relaxing retreat and quiet getaway in the Poconos. There are a lot of old and delicate antiques and oddities strewn throughout the house to help create an unique and interesting atmosphere, but many things could be easily broken if you are not careful. We just ask that you respect this and that if you are looking for a large house to host a party, there are plenty of wonderful options that could accommodate you in the area. Thank you for respecting this!

Please email with further questions. Thanks for your interest! - Don

Pocono Lake, Pennsylvania, Stati Uniti

The Velvet Elk is located in a very quaint and quiet residential community, with 3 lakes interspersed throughout the village. The house is very private, with no direct neighbors, and located off a well attended to gravel road. There is a nature preserve directly behind the house, which makes sitting on the deck a pleasure for reading, relaxing, barbecuing, and enjoying the bluestone fire pit. The area is stellar for a nice walk, run, or swim in the lake. A great escape!

Traveler. Musician. Appreciator of life. I take a lot of pride working on making my home as cozy as possible for friends, family, and guests alike! This home is much cared after, and most definitely not your traditional "rental." You'll find a lot of interesting old radios and projectors and posters throughout the house, and there will probably be more when you decide to return! It's close to all the local skiing, and has a very private an open backyard for your non-winter BBQ'ing and stargazing by the fire pit. The Velvet Elk has been our favorite getaway for over a decade now and every trip there is re-invigorating. Personally, I especially love making a nice fire in the wood stove and staring at the flames...until I get hungry again. But I digress. I'll be available anytime by phone if you have questions regarding your stay, or are in need of directions/suggestions. I know you'll love it there! - Don
