Hello Mr. Ashton,
According to Google Maps, the drive (town to town) is 77 miles which takes about 1.5 hours one way. Add time in wintry weather. This may seem like a lot but many go even further each workday, to New York CIty and back. I feel the beauty of the Pocono Mountains area is well worth any extra driving. With all the other commuters in the Stroudsburg area, I believe they must also feel that way. I love it here and I hope you will, too!
