Awesome Weekend Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We needed a place in Jim Thorpe where we could bring our dog for a weekend and are so happy we found the Bear Den. The owner was very prompt in her response and got us all set up almost immediately. We were so surprised and happy with our stay. It was clean, cute, and cozy! We will definitely be coming back!

Perfect Pocono Getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our late holiday break with friends and 3 kids crept up on us, so I found myself searching for a last minute reservation near skiing, snow tubing, indoor water park, Jim Thorpe and hiking, etc. We got very lucky and happened on the Bear Den online. Owners were prompt and accommodating and the property was a great find beyond the expectation set by the pics on the website. Very clean, comfortable, private wooded setting with outdoor fire pit, downstairs game room with foosball and big screen, kid bunks and ample adult accomodations with separate baths. We skied, snowtubed, hiked the nearby glenoko falls, visited Jim Thorpe and watched the snow fall on New Years Eve in front of a cozy fire. Laundry, full kitchen, nearby grocery, gas, entertainment and attractions make this a terrific spot that we will be returning to for some summer fun.

Can't Wait to Stay Here Again!

Can't Wait to Stay Here Again!
  • 5 of 5
This was the first time that I sought to reserve a vacation home and I was nervous about the whole experience. I truly got lucky with this property and its owners!

From the get-go, the owner replied quickly and thoroughly to all my inquiries. The pictures made the house seem nice, but it wasn't until getting there that my group and I were BLOWN AWAY by everything: the location, the amenities, the cleanliness!

I rented this space for my organization's weekend retreat. We were efficient and motivated to stay on task because we couldn't wait to enjoy some down time in the house, cooking, watching movies, playing video games or going for a run in the beautiful and quiet neighborhood. We already have talked about a paintball trip around the area and staying at the Bear Den again. The house is superbly-furnished and immaculate.

This is well worth every penny, and I look forward to staying there again. Thank you!

Bargain in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5
I'm not even sure where to start....everything from service to the house itself was better than I could have imagined in trying to find a weekend getaway. I recently spent a weekend there for a bachelor party while whitewater rafting (about 10 minutes away) and playing paintball (about 20 minutes away). The owner was very polite and very helpful in providing information and booking my stay. THEN I arrived and was blown away. The pictures really don't do this place justice!
The property is perfectly tucked into the woods, secluded and not near loud main roads. The yard is large and provided plenty of space for sitting around a fire and playing horseshoes and corn-hole, all at the same time. The house was clean and fully equipped. The rooms were large and provide a variety of places to lounge and catch up with old friends. It was perfect, a great house and yard, nicely tucked in the woods but still close to lots of fun attractions and activities. Next time I plan a trip to the Pocono area, I'll be staying at The Bear Den, again!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
Bang for your buck! - Had a group of people here for labor day weekend, with the intention of going white water rafting. It was about 10 minutes away from the rafting site and a very short distance from a cute local breakfast place and the main road.

The kitchen and rooms in general were very spacious and the deck and yard had ample room for cooking, lounging and a game of horse shoe :)

Would certainly reccommend this location if you're interested in a whitewater rating trip!

Great place for families!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed here-two families with two children each (8 total). It fit our needs perfectly! The house looks small from the outside but the two levels inside were spacious and gave us all enough room. The kids really loved the big backyard and we enjoyed sitting around the fire every night. The foosball table also gave the kids hours of entertainment. The neighborhood lake/beach was fun too! The house was clean and kitchen was well-equipped. The owners were very accommodating. Great time!
