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.

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.
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.
Highly recommend. We did a spring skiing trip (Blue Mountain is easily close enough if you don't want Big Boulder for some reason). This is super close to Jim Thorpe for excellent food and things to do beyond skiing. The pictures of the house do not do it justice. It's bigger and better that it seems. We will probably be back. The sleeping arrangements are fantastic. Owner is easy going and nice to deal with. If you're penny pinching, there is a small cleaning fee that is not mentioned. Common sense tells you it's coming, but just FYI. For you summer folk, Jim Thorpe is the best destination I've ever been to for family reunions.
Great time if you are looking to get away and have a relaxing and quit vacation . Everything was perfect . Mike the owner was pleasure to deal with and the house was very clean and spacious . I will definitely be coming back. Thanks Mike .
Rented this house for a ski weekend with two families. House was better than we expected, clean. nice kitchen and plenty of room. We had 9 adults and could have slept quite a few more. Owner was easy to contact and communicate with, we would try to stay here again if possible. Very nice community, close to everything we wanted to do. Thanks for a great weekend.
My 2nd time, and I hope to return!
So clean and peaceful and nice!
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.
I have to say what a wonderful four days at your gorgeous home. Everything was well kept and everything you needed was there. This was a very pleasant experience from the instructions that they left to the great amenities . I am looking forward to another vacation at this home . Thank You
