Why The Owner chose Montage Mountain

When looking for a vacation home we truly loved the Bear Creek location, the area is beautiful and we especially loved how close the house is to the lake. What sold us was once you enter the front door you see the lake from the 16 ft. picture window. We also loved that there were no other homes across the lake which makes this location even more beautiful.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy taking walks around the lake with our dogs. Waking up in the morning and sitting by the lake having our morning coffee is especially relaxing after a busy work week.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear John & Rita,

Everything about this trip was a complete pleasure. Thank you for the care you took to ensure that we arrived safe. Your communication as property owners was Top Notch!

We did a little bit of everything, satisfying every persons whim in our little family of four on this beautiful long weekend.

We spent much of our first rainy day indoors, playing in the Game roomand we took a trip into Wilkes Barre. We had fun meeting new Crossfit friends and NEPA crossfit and even more fun at Wegmans! We brought home some delicious steaks and grilled followed by Smores at the Fire Pit.

The sun came out the second day and we spent most of it hopping back and forth from the boats to the hot tub.

Forgot to mention the delicious pizza we got our first night at Cosenza's but can't fail to mention the marvelous dinner we had at the Bear Creek Inn. We recommend a reservation, as it got us seated upon arrival in a room full of people waiting for a a table. Can't wait to eat my veal leftovers for breakfast soon! They definitely do Italian right there.. Mangia! Despite our full bellies, we could not pass up the appple dumpling ice cream stand on our way home that night (115 & Meadow Run Rd) One happy guy there walked away with 6 in hand!

We had the perfect evening with a fire in the fireplace and a family video. We also like reading this Guestbook, seeing how others enjoyed their time here. Hope you enjoy reading about our adventures. We sure enjoyed having them. We also saw some Newts. They were so cute! I (Valory) named them, their names were Bob, Joe, Freddy and Newton. We had so much fun and I can't wait till we come back! Thank you!!

Winter Wonderland

  • 4 of 5

The house was more than what I expected for the price. The description was accurate but the pictures on the website did not do the house justice. The property was clean and well-maintained. We arrived on a day when it was snowing and the drive-way was covered with snow but as soon as we pulled up, there was someone there to plow the snow so that we could pull our car in. The owners were very helpful via E-mail and by phone. I did not have any problems getting in contact with the owners. My friends joined me at this property and it's definitely a place where we would come back to stay. The only negative comment I would make about the property was that the weekend stay was too short. We were only able to check in on Friday after 3:00pm and then check out on Sunday was at 11:00am. We also have to wash the sheets before heading out on Sunday so we had to wake up really early to get everything ready to head out on Sunday. If we checked in at 3:00pm on Friday, we should at least be able to check out on Sunday at 3:00pm as well. Checking out later on Sunday would give us time to clean, get all our belongings together and time to eat before getting on the road.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. Customer satisfaction is always our first priority! We do offer a late check out which gives you until 4:00 instead of 11:00 for a small fee. Normally during ski season when we are busy we cannot always offer the late check out since we usually have renters checking in the same day at 3:00 which allows for meticulous cleaning of the house. Cleanliness is very essential in our business. As we explained, we do not charge any cleaning fees, our prices are all inclusive. We also offer linen service.

Amazing Getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded mine and my family's expectations! My sister and I are especially picky about where we sleep and about cleanliness. The first thing we both said when we arrived was how clean the house was!! The lake, the firepit, the game room, and the jacuzzi kept us (6 couples) busy all weekend. The best of all was how kind and patient the homeowners were who made sure they answered every single question I had plus they totally prepared us with a list of items needed so we were completely comfortable and able to enjoy our weekend. We will all 100% be returning to this awesome home. It was really hard for me to chose a house because of how picky I am and I am SO glad I chose this one!!! We're so sad to be home!

Awesome vacation at Bear Creek

  • 5 of 5

Rita and John,

Our family vacation in your house was one of the best family vacations ever! The house is amazing, everything we could ask for in a vacation home….and more. My grandson kept calling it our “new house”! The weather was perfect, and the fishing, according to the men, was terrific! And amazingly enough, no one complained about the rowing!! We just loved the peace and quiet. It was amazing that even though we were surrounded by other homes, we had the lake all to ourselves. Morning coffee out on the patio was my favorite time, watching the fog lift off the lake as the sun came up. We even had the privilege of seeing a bald eagle on a daily basis! The ducks and the chipmunks were also very people friendly!! My 77 year old mother had a wonderful time also. She loved that the water was only a few steps away. I so appreciate the time you took to answer my many questions upon our arrival. You couldn’t have been more accommodating and patient! The whole family agreed that we want to stay in your house again!! We will definitely return….I’m just very sad that it can’t be next week! It was such a pleasure to meet you both, so to speak, and I hope that we have the opportunity for our paths to cross again. Thank you so much for everything!!

I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PROPERTY TO ANY ONE WHO WOULD LIKE PEACE AND QUIET.

AWESOME PLACE!!!!

  • 5 of 5

These is a beautiful home, we've been here twice and coming back in April. We love these house cause its secluded and we are 30ft away from the lake which is wonderful, its an awesome sight to see!! It has a game room and a exercise area which is great. OMG our dog loves it here didn't want to leave the last time we were here, my sister and i would get up early and walk our dog for hrs everyday which she looked forward too and has the freedom to run around and play and she puts herself to bed in the evening from being so tired of running around all day. It's a place to relax play games, watch the moonlight, go canoeing its so cozy we don't even want to leave either!! Its nice to get away from our crazy busy lives!!! Rita and John are such wonderful people, vey pleasant to talk to. Thank You Rita and John for allowing us to bring our dog to your home!! We are so excited cause we are coming back for two weeks yay!!! Can't wait:D Thanks Again John and Rita! The Johnson Family
