BEAR CREEK is a private recreational development that offers a large, private, lake. The lake has two small beaches and lifeguards, during the summer months. No powerboats are allowed on the lake, only row, sail and 5 hp trolling boats are allowed. We have great fishing as long as you have a valid license. We, also, have a heated Olympic Size swimming pool; tennis courts and children’s play area. All this is available to owners and those who rent in this development.
The house has a deck across the front that wraps a short way around the side of the building. Inside you will find a Great room, which is a living room area and a dining area. There is a fully equipped kitchen, one full bath off the hallway and another bath off the master bedroom. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and sliding glass patio doors, so that you can look out onto the back of the property (you can lay in bed and watch the deer stroll through the woods).
There is another bedroom; we use as a sitting room as well, with daybed in it and a third bedroom with a double bed. All the bedrooms have closets and a chest of drawers or bureau for storage. There is also a rollaway cot in one of the bedrooms.
In the hall closest you will find and apartment size clothes washer and dryer for the renter to use.

My wife and I enjoy traveling, shopping, relaxing by the pool or lake. We are, now, retired and like all the activities we find in the Poconos. We like to read and I enjoy photography.
Since my company moved us to Ohio in 1985 we rented a place in Bear Creek every year for vacation. We liked the location and all the activities Bear Creek had to offer, as well as all the things to do in the area. We could be as busy as we wanted without being bored because there was always something new to do. We began looking to buy in 1995 and found this home in 2000. We decided to purchase it and use it as a rental property except for a few weeks a year when we use it for our vacation.
We enjoy sitting on the deck and watching the deer, fox and other wildlife wander through the property. We like that it is about a 20 minute walk to the pool or the lake, so we do not have to drive unless we feel like it. We find that the location is centrally located to many of the activities the area offers, most are within 20 minutes of our cabin with the longest about 45 minutes away.
