Private Rentals at Our Campus

Private Rentals at Our Campus

Our property is tucked away in the scenic Upper Delaware River Valley and Pocono Mountains foothills. Our campus is surrounded by a 1,300-acre forest, and is only a stone’s throw from Calkins Creek. Located in Boyds Mills–10 miles from Honesdale, Pennsylvania–you’ll find cabins nestled among the trees, a lodge at the top of a small hill, and the Barn at the center of it all. We’re only 2.5 hours from New York City and 3 hours from Philadelphia.
