Just Listed in the Poconos: Vintage Cottage in Skytop

The Poconos have exploded with development since this cottage was built in the 1920s. It has a totally up-to-date inside but also still serves as a reminder of the way things used to be.

This cedar-clad cottage is almost a century old — a connection to the Poconos’ past. But this house at 619 Deer Hill Rd., Canadensis, PA 18305 is also fully outfitted for the way we live and relax today. | Pocono Mountains Association of Realtors MLS images via MORE Modern Real Estate

The Pocono Mountains are chock-full of vacation homes built since 1960. Freeways, widespread prosperity and increased leisure time led to a boom in development that hasn’t completely stopped yet.

But as any Buck Hill Falls or Pocono Manor resident can tell you, people have been vacationing in these Northeast Pennsylvania mountains for more than a century. And here and there, you can find reminders of just how long the Poconos have appealed to city folk looking for a touch of mountain air.
