About Mike

Philadelphia residents since birth. We visit the Peaceful Pocono Getaway as often as possible.

Mike purchased this house in 2007

Why Mike chose Jim Thorpe

Any time of year is a good time to visit Bear Creek Lakes in the Pocono Mountains, located within driving distance of most major East Coast cities. Our property is centrally located with-in the community. Quite is the word as there are no properties across from ours.

The Pocono region steaming with history offers year-round cultural tours and art exhibitions, abundant antiquing and brand-name shopping and a full calendar of festivals showcasing the heritage, music and food of the Pocono Mountains.

What makes this house unique

Vacation fun and year 'round living begin at Bear Creek Lakes, in the heart of the lively Pocono Vacationland. Here, lying in the scenic Pocono's, 1500 feet above sea level, Bear Creek Lakes proudly takes its place high on the roster of America's finest communities. There's mountain beauty all around. Bear Creek Lakes is a peaceful and restful community of permanent residents and vacation homeowners. You'll find us to be the most enjoyable vacation spot you've ever known. For Bear Creek Lakes is a complete community in itself, only your imagination limits the exciting possibilities afforded at Bear Creek Lakes.

Located along Rt. 903, just eight and one half miles from the Mahoning Valley Turnpike Interchange, Bear Creek Lakes is close to the finest skiing and recreational facilities in the Pocono's. These include Big Boulder Ski Area and Split Rock. Close at hand is 26,000 acre game land 141, offering the finest grouse, rabbit, ring neck pheasant, squirrel, and deer hunting to be found anywhere. Other nearby points of recreational interest include Hickory Run State Park and the Francis E. Walter Dam on the Lehigh River.

Three miles of shoreline surrounds 160 acres of unspoiled Bear Creek Lake! The Lake is fully stocked perfect for fishing, sailing, boating, and swimming along with two private beaches. There is a heated Olympic size swimming pool and a wading pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, bocce court, regulation softball field, basketball courts, volleyball courts, picnic areas and playgrounds. The community has a clubhouse and a large pavilion which are available for private parties.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a blast. The place is great, sat around fire pit everynight and ate smores,and drank beers. Relaxed in the cool Pocono air. The deck and patio are gorgeous, we grilled and had family meals on the big table. Everyone was comfortable, plenty of blamkets and sheets. We played our acoustical guitars at night. Went to Lehigh Gorge and hiked the falls, went swimming in the river and cool lake and hung around the house being lazy and relaxed. WE plan to return soon.

Two day stay was to short!

  • 4 of 5
Great house, in a great location. We have family that live in Jim Thorpe and needed a place close by for a two day visit. This house fit the bill just right and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The fire ring out back was an excellent way for the family to get together, kick back and enjoy a time together. Thanks to the owners for allowing us to use their house...also to our surprise there was a classic rock band playing at the pavilion on the Saturday night we stayed. What a nice bonus to go and listen. Rob and Jan G.

Peaceful Stay In Ski Country

  • 5 of 5
This property was well maintained, very cute, and peaceful. We were only here for a few days for a wedding at Blue Mountain Ski Resort, but I would love to come back to this area with our children.

We loved the fire pit! The closed community was nice and it seemed to have a lot of opportunities of fun times as a family or a couple. I loved how close Jim Thorpe was and all the fun things to do in the area.

We would recommend this rental to anyone interested in a nice quiet retreat to the wilderness, away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

Rafting weekend

  • 5 of 5
We went on a rafting trip down the Lehigh and this house was a great spot to spend the weekend and enjoy the company of good friends. The outdoor fire pit is a great spot.
The house has plenty of room and all the amenties that are needed. Well kept clean home. Will return for other trips to the poconos for sure. Convenient location to lots of stuff to do. We did not use any of the Bear Creek amentities, but hope to fish and maybe kayak in the lake on the next trip.
Thanks

Great Pocono House for a Peaceful Trip

  • 5 of 5
What a clean, nice, and peaceful house! We had a great stay during our trip. Plenty of space, nice and quiet, and the house was in perfect condition when we walked in.
A few simple instructions from the owner where written down, and opening and closing the house was easy.
The perfect spot to relax, and take a break, we will definitely be back!
