The two queen bedrooms are private and peaceful, and they're similar in size so there won't be any fights between guests in your group -- just pick 'the red one' or 'the green one,' and you'll all be treated to new memory-foam mattresses and buttery-soft linens, blankets & pillows.
A twin-over-full bunk bed rounds out the third bedroom, and we recommend that only plan for kids to sleep on the top bunk. (It's sturdy enough for adults, but the ladder you'll climb to reach the top is on the narrow side.) The bunk room has several special features to keep the whole gang happy: a fully-stocked game closet provides days' worth of entertainment, including an LCD TV with Nintendo Switch, plus plenty of non-electronic toys and board games, too.
Days are fun in the bunk room, and nights are special, too! Flip on the LED 'disco' lights to create a party mood, or dim them to be lulled to sleep. Beware: every kid wants to sleep on the top bunk so they can be closest to the gold constellation wallpaper on the ceiling.
Entering into the heart of the home, you're immediately greeted by the brand new kitchen and dining area. Want to prepare a big meal for the whole gang? Check! That's no problem in the well-appointed kitchen with brand-new appliances and plenty of quality cookware & bakeware to help cook anything you want to whip up. And there's ample room for up to 10 at the antique live-edge oak table and benches. A coffee station and whimsical wingback chair make a comfy perch for morning conversations and reading.
In the oldest part of the house, the log cabin, unwind on the two velvety, modern Interior Design sofas or in one of the two plush goose-down chairs. Watch Netflix, Hulu or Disney+, play board games or try a puzzle, or simply enjoy the crackle of the gas fireplace. If you need a fluffy blanket for snuggling, there are plenty close at hand, plus there's a record player for setting the mood.
The key to a perfect weekend escape pad? Plenty of cozy reading nooks. At Sycamore Camp, we encourage guests to grab a book from the built-in bookshelves in the cabin and settle in by the fire, or maybe you'll prefer the 'pamplemousse' wingback in the kitchen? The hammock out back under the big pine trees is another favorite spot, or the lounge area by the hot tub is cozy, or the wooden rocking chair by the front of the house...? We hope you'll leave plenty of free time to try them all. Don't worry, we have plenty of good books to keep you occupied.
To enjoy the beauty and peace of the Poconos, simply step outside. A sun-dappled deck space with a gas barbecue is perfect for grilling juicy burgers and hot dogs. The wooden table and long benches seat up to 10 for al fresco meals. Or kick back in the lounge area on the stone patio or at one of the Adirondack chairs around the fire pit with your mug of morning coffee. Keep an eye out for families of deer strolling nearby. And maybe even a bear will come visit, if you're lucky.
The house is fully-stocked with indoor and outdoor games, so you'll never need to leave to find plenty of afternoon fun. Enjoy a game of ping-pong at the outdoor table, or try your hand at outdoor versions of Jenga, Yatzhee and a 4-foot tall wooden Connect Four set! Anyone for a Badminton match?
The sparkling hot tub is irresistible at the end of a long day. Relax here with a glass of wine and listen to the sounds of the forest. In the evenings, gather around the fire pit for scary stories and s’mores.

It's your personal mountain hideaway, and there's plenty to keep you happily entertained right at the house & grounds.
