This area is the heart of the North Poconos. Great for hiking but if you still need to reach a big box store for essentials this is your best bet. It's also home to a unique sandwich shop that has been featured in the New York Times. For fans of The Office, this is also where they filmed scenes for Schrute Farms.

We highly recommend taking a picnic out to beautiful Skinner’s Falls, just a five-minute drive from the house. Follow other visitors to make your way to the rocks on the river. Sometimes Lander’s Rivers Trips will charge you $1 to walk across their grassy lot to the public path – which is lame – other times not. In the summer, this is a camper’s paradise full of swimmers, and folks on rafts, kayaks, and tubes; offseason it’s quiet and lovely. On the river, large flat rocks heat up in the sun and form excellent spots to sit and read, swim from, and enjoy the pristine river views.
