The Bluesland Embassy has been an exclusive retreat for performing artists and their families. It is the ideal place to spend a few days getting your act together, breaking in a new band member, and working on new material. As you enter the Embassy the first thing you will notice is the view over the Pocono valley. We're at the top of the mountain at an elevation of 1800 feet with an unobstructed view of 25 miles to the east and almost 50 miles to the north. There's a giant stone fireplace with a wood stove which helps heat the rehearsal area. Off to the right is the dining room, where we serve lunch and dinner. We can accommodate dinner parties of twelve by bringing in an additional table. Beyond the dining room is our kitchen, where your majordomo will spend most of the day awaiting you...The Bluesland Embassy has been an exclusive retreat for performing artists and their families.

As you enter the Embassy the first thing you will notice is the view over the Pocono valley.

We can accommodate dinner parties of twelve by bringing in an additional table. Beyond the dining room is our kitchen, where your majordomo will spend most of the day awaiting your instructions. Outside the gigantic picture window is our deck. We grill out here and enjoy the fresh air when the weather permits. In August, it is the ideal place to watch the Perseid meteor showers. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Two of the bedrooms have adjoining decks, so you can step out of bed, get a cup of coffee at the top of the stairs, and read the newspaper in private as the sun rises over the Kittatinny Ridge. Each of the bedrooms has a television with USB ports, cable TV and Netflix service, as well as a DVD player. Downstairs, below the main floor are the office, the TV theater, and the Workout Zone. Each has its own television with cable/Internet service, as well as an excellent stereo music system. You will find a most satisfying collection of music CDs and movie DVDs for your entertainment. The laundry room is down here, too. Outside the Workout Zone is our plant nursery, where we cultivate rare and unusual ferns, fuschias, hostas and grasses. The Embassy is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the anchor properties in an exclusive hundred-year old cottage community. A major resort hotel is just a short walk from the front door. Naturally, we provide fresh linens and towels. An impressive selection of adult beverages (fresh and unopened) are also included for your convenience at no additional charge (except for bottled wine). We expect that our guests will have visitors, especially other performing artists. We are happy to include them for drinks and dinner and can make overnight reservations for them at the resort hotel next door. An evening performance after a day of rehearsal will be a most memorable experience. The Bluesland Embassy will be a wonderful place to spend a few days or a few weeks. It's close to all the regional attractions, very private, very clean, and exceptionally furnished for your comfort and amusement. We have spent a year polishing up this historic property. This year, we can offer the Embassy from Memorial Day to Labor Day at a very special price. Contact the Owner. Tell us who you are and what you hope to accomplish at the Embassy. If you are an artist who hasn't taken your family for a vacation in years, let us know. We have a special arrangement for you. More
