The Pocono Mountains in eastern Pennsylvania provide an all-seasons playground for those seeking a quick getaway from Philadelphia or even New York City.

Hiking or kayaking in the summertime, skiing in the winter or just enjoying some outlet shopping or a trip to the resort spa — however you like to spend your time away from home, you can probably do it in the Poconos.

However, as so many people flock to this destination, you may find yourself craving a little alone time. Getting that alone time and seclusion doesn’t mean sacrificing your taste for the fine life, though. You can have resort-level luxury and a little piece of the mountains all to yourself, with one of these 10 luxury Pocono cabin rentals.

Why you should stay: A huge space right on the water

  • Sleeps: 16
  • Minimum Stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $967/night

This lodge-style cabin on the shores of Lake Wallenpaupack is a clear winner for events such as corporate retreats, family reunions and even weddings.

You’re always just steps away from the lake, where you can swim or take advantage of one of the provided four kayaks. You can also dock your own boat at the property, or rent a pontoon from the host or one of the nearby marinas. If you want to spend as much time on the water as possible during your Poconos vacation, this is where to do it with ease.

Why you should stay: A property that’s ready for a party

  • Sleeps: 20
  • Minimum Stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $700/night

This Lehigh Gorge log cabin is the perfect pick for a party in the Poconos. Whereas throwing a big bash at other home rentals can be a bit of a problem (either the host doesn’t like it/allow it or the neighbors complain), that’s not the case here.

The host welcomes parties of all types and even will hook you up with some on-site catering or shuttle service to nearby spots like casinos, wineries and more. The private property is situated on multiple acres in the woods, so there are no neighbors to disturb, but you’re still close enough to town to easily shop or check out the sites.

Popular attractions in the area include Lehigh Gorge State Park, the Lehigh River and the nearby mountain tourist town of Jim Thorpe.

Why you should stay: Sleek and stylish

  • Sleeps: 16
  • Minimum Stay: 3 nights
  • Rates from: $600/night

If you’ve been shopping around for a Poconos rental, you’ve likely noticed something. Most of these rentals have a very mountain cabin-esque vibe. But if you don’t really care for that look, you’re in luck.

This sleek and modern villa offers a European-style aesthetic that’s more at home between the pages of a home decor magazine than it is in the mountains. Everything is slim, streamlined and a little Nordic, for a look that you’re going to love posting about on your favorite social channel.

Of course, you won’t need to give up all your favorite vacation amenities in exchange for all this style. The villa offers in-demand perks such as a sauna, hot tub and even an EV charger for juicing up your ride.

  • Sleeps: 22
  • Minimum Stay: 2 nights

Multiple bunk rooms make for lots of space for the kiddos, as does a lawn with a fire ring and outdoor lighting for nighttime fun, as well as a game room with a billiards table.

Why you should stay: Just the right size

  • Sleeps: 9
  • Minimum Stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $725/night

When you’re looking for the perfect Poconos vacation rental, you’ll see that most of your luxury options have one thing in common: They’re big, sprawling, hulking houses that offer tons of bedrooms and spots to sleep. But if you’re not traveling with that many people, you might find that large size overwhelming. For smaller families or groups who want enough space, but not too much space, the West End Pond Home delivers with its five bedrooms and three bathrooms.

The home sports a very traditional cabin feel inside, with a large stone fireplace, lots of wood and windows overlooking the water. The outdoor space really impresses, though, with a huge lawn with a fire ring and Adirondack chairs, kayaks for use on the water, and a big multi-level deck with lots of seating. Extra fun features include an indoor jacuzzi tub overlooking the water, a separate television room and access to the deck from the owners suite.

  • Minimum Stay: 2 nights
  • Rates from: $1,575/night

The Poconos Manor gives you lots of amenities: a game room, home theater, basketball court, hot tub, WiFi and more.

Dreaming of a cozy cottage getaway, but traveling with a big group? You can easily house everyone comfortably while still getting that cozy vibe you’re dreaming of, thanks to the Crystal Lake Cottage. Seemingly small and cute, it still manages to host 12 guests across six bedrooms.

The long, narrow kitchen features white subway tile. An upstairs deck overlooks the forest. The dining room features a long table with plenty of space for everyone, in a room lined with windows that take full advantage of the picturesque setting.
