Stony Brook Inn

River Rd & Worthington Ave , Shawnee on Delaware, PA 18356 USA (Show map)


The Stony Brook Inn, built in 1853, is nestled in the quaint village of Shawnee-on-Delaware, Pa in the beautiful Pocono Mountains. With its meandering staircase design, it offers rare and special privacy as none of the guest rooms share walls with any other. We offer four unique rooms, all of which have private baths. A full country breakfast is served every morning with fresh homemade breads and scrumptious entrees. We also have our own heated swimming pool.

Pete and Rose Ann Ferguson truly have the gift of hospitality. Stony Brook Inn was the perfect 5 day getaway in the historic and pristine location of Shawnee, PA. Each morning they provided a delicious breakfast and recommendations about local attractions. We not only had a relaxing vacation, but also made new friends. We highly recommend this wonderful bed and breakfast.

Well Worth the Trip to Stony Brook

We've been visiting the Pocono area yearly for almost 10 years, and every time we come to this beautiful part of Pennsylvania, we've stayed at the Stony Brook Inn. Pete and Rose Ann are genuinely warm innkeepers with a real flair for hospitality. The rooms are clean, the beds, comfortable and the breakfast table, inviting. From suggestions of restaurants and great shopping, as well as recommendations of outstanding hiking and waterfall sites, Pete and Rose Ann have a wealth of knowledge of the area. We give it "four" thumbs up! ---- Mike and Janine

Quiet Retreat

We found Stony Brook on the internet and as a last minute effort for lodging. We are so happy with our decision. Janet and John are so friendly, welcoming, good food, clean rooms. You have to try this B&B out.

We've stayed here before and John and Janet make us feel like family and that's why we came back. They are both wondeful people. We could only wish all innkeepers were like them.

Very accomodating, owners very congenial and friendly, rooms were very homey and keeping with the historic period, Sherry in the room added a nice touch.

Stony Brook Inn is a nice anecdote to those who have tired of plastic motels. The inn has a strong “at home” feeling. Innkeepers Pete and Rose Ann have a welcoming, low-key style, which we enjoyed.

They accomodated us very nicely on such short notice; the couple made us feel comfortable and welcome - hospitable, great breakfast; there was a lot of good reading material available for our use.
