Summers are mild with temperatures rarely climbing above 90 degrees. Fishing is very good in the spring, summer, and fall. All three lakes at Big Bass Lake are stocked with largemouth bass. There is excellent trout fishing on the Lehigh River. Anglers need a Pennsylvania fishing license to fish either the lakes or the river.

The Pocono Mountains receives an avg of 60 inches of snow every year. In the winter you can ice skate on the big lake and downhill ski and snow tube at the resort's private ski slope with T-bar.

Located in Gouldsboro, Big Bass Lake is near restaurants, shopping, several golf courses, and the NASCAR Pocono Raceway. Big Bass Lake is also next to Gouldsboro State Park. The 2,800 acre park has trails for hiking, biking, and cross country skiing. Ice fishing is popular during the winter, and anglers can fish for bass, pickerel, yellow perch, catfish, and sunfish. Hunters will find healthy populations of white tailed deer, turkey, snowshoe hare, and black bear, and there is trapping for fur bearing animals including muskrat, mink, beaver, fox, coyote, and raccoon.

Big Bass Lake is near Tobyhanna State Park. Spanning Monroe and Wayne Counties, the 5,440 acre park has primitive camping, hunting, picnicking, and hiking. The 3.3 mile long Yellow Trail runs through the Black Bear and Bender Swamps Natural Area. There are also wetlands and boulder fields which are a visual reminder of the area's glacial past.

Great Retreat near perfection

  • 5 of 5
We are already planning a trip back to this first class home, we had stayed at other places but never like this, this felt like home and not a rental. Despite our last minute decision, the owner and the lake were very helpful and considerate. Picture perfect the kiddos enjoyed the zip line in the woods and stories by the fire. Teens visited camel beach and zip line which is a two day event almost. The adults enjoyed the pool, played tennis and wished for more volleyball nets. The only thing missing was a hottub, but regardless a great place to unwind after eventful days, we kareoked late into the night. Party of six adults two teens and two tots enjoyed your home, Thanks Jennifer for your last min.preparations.

Great House

  • 5 of 5
This house was great. The layout is perfect for entertaining. The living room, dinning room, and kitchen are all attached to make one great, GREAT rm. The card table on the loft and the huge deck was an added bonus that worked out very well. Would recommend this house for anyone. We had an awesome weekend and you will too.

An Awesome Experience!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I, along with several of my childrens' friends had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful home. From start to end it was absolutely incredible. It was one of the most comfortable homes we ever rented. Everyone had a blast and left with a lot of wonderful memories. I highly recommend this home and greatly enjoyed dealing with the owners, who I found to be very helpful and accommodating.
