Welcome to The Bears' Den! Located right on Lake Harmony, one of only two motorboat lakes located in the Pocono Mountains in Pennsylvania. Lake Harmony sits right in the middle of Jack Frost Mountain and Big Boulder Mountain, so both are just a five minute ride away.
The Bears' Den is a twelve year old house sitting right on the lake with fifty feet of lakefront. It has its own large dock and private beach area, so go ahead and bring your own boat or jet skis right up to the back yard! Brand new six person hot tub just installed overlooking lake!
With three large levels of living area, there is enough room for everyone. The Bears' Den sleeps 14 comfortably. The basement level is a game room with two sets of sliders that open to the lakefront area and a covered patio WITH A BRAND NEW SIX PERSON HOT TUB! The game room is complete with a top of the line pool table, a dry bar, a full-size refrigerator, an air hockey table, a sitting area, and a half bath.
Move on up to the main level, where you enter the house, and this is the main living area. Here you will find one bedroom with a king size bed; a huge eat-in kitchen, complete with large refrigerator with ice maker, brand new dishwasher, electric stove, microwave, and everything else you need to feel right at home...even a Keurig!; formal living room; family room, complete with gas fireplace, cathedral ceiling, large-screen television, and another two sets of sliders that open onto a wrap-around deck overlooking the lake. Lastly there is a half bath on this floor as well.
Go upstairs and you will find three bedrooms and two full baths. The large master bedroom has a king size bed, walk-in closet, and a master bathroom with a soaking tub. The second bedroom has a queen size bed, and the third bedroom has bunk beds with a full on the bottom and a twin on top. There are two pull-out sofas in the house (one full and one queen). The deck is furnished with deck furniture and a gas grill, and there are chairs for the beach/dock area, as well as a fire pit.
Every room in the house has ceiling fans and there is a full-size washer and dryer on the first floor as well. There are four televisions in the home with cable and DVD players, and free WiFi is also available.
MINIMUM RENTAL AGE IS 25 - NO PROM GROUPS
We are a family of four living in South Jersey and were looking for a year-round vacation home. We fell in love with Lake Harmony and immediately knew we wanted our vacation home to be there. When the opportunity arose to purchase this property it was a dream come true.
Tim Conte purchased this house in 2011
We wanted a location that would be something we would want to go to in both the winter and the summer. We also wanted some place that was within a few hours of us so we could easily just get up and go to it. Lake Harmony fit that perfectly. With two teenage boys, we knew they would love being lakefront in the summer, and so close to the mountains for snowboarding in the winter.
As soon as we saw the back yard of this home, we knew we had to have it. We never dreamed we would be buying a house that was literally lake front! It was just one of those things...we pulled over, looked at it, and knew we would never again see a house that would compare to it. The back deck and back yard are to die for! Also, since the home was only 10 years old, there really wasn't anything we would have to do to it. It was in perfect shape. The rest, as they say, is now history. Shortly after we purchased the home, we named it The Bears' Den and started decorating it accordingly.
My review is a tad late, but good times like this are never forgotten! My buddies and I are all avid fisherman so when we saw this place, it was a no-brainer. The dock had plenty of room for multiple boats and the house was big enough for our crowd of 15 guys. The fishing was also very good, as some of us pulled in some nice sized large mouth bass. Overall, the house is perfect for a mountain getaway and the owners were helpful every step of the way. Looking forward to staying there again in the near future!
Rented on Lake Harmony because my husband gets together every year for a memorial golf outing and this was centrally located to the golf courses that were played and the restaurants that they went to. House is a lovely property, beautiful setting right on the lake.
My husband and I spent a few days at the Bear's Den. Even though it was just the two of us, the house is great for a large group. Enjoyed the pool table and air hockey. It was fun to fish off the dock (even if we didn't have any bites.) More than enough dishes, pots, silverware for a group. The only thing that would make it perfect for us is a full bath on the main floor. Would recomend the house to anyone. Great location and easy parking.
Our family, including four grown kids and a friend spent a week there and it was perfect. We wanted a house on the lake where we could do some fishing and light boating and this was it. While casting on the dock, I looked down and saw a big fish and another twice it's size cruising in and out from under the dock and I managed to catch the smaller of the two, about a 3 lb. bass, which I threw back ... it's still there ... When we weren't fishing, we were spending time in the hot tub, playing golf, shopping in Jim Thorpe and white water rafting. Piggy's is a great breakfast place in walking distance (be careful with traffic) and Louie's is a great steak house (pricey, but worth it). We also ate at Nick's, but you could do better elsewhere.
The house was clean and comfortable. We never got to test the A/C because we didn't need it. The owner was courteous, fair and professional.
We have been going to Poconos every year for the past few years, and I must say that this was the best stay we have had so far. We visited with two other families (total 12 of us), size of this house was perfect for us. Tim and Pam have maintained this house very well. The location of the house is amazing, its right on the lake. There were so many things we liked about this house, but here are some to name a few - kids had a great time at the sand beach that's on the lake, game room in the basement is a blast, everyone had fun riding in the paddle boat and kayak. In a nutshell, great stay. I highly recommend this for a getaway.

Just 5 minutes from Big Boulder and Jack Frost Ski Areas. The H2Ooooooh indoor water park is a 2 minute drive. Other ski mountains and water parks are within 20 minutes. Casinos and outlet shopping are 20 minutes away. You can walk to the local restaurants/bars. Truthfully, you may not ever want to leave the house...it's right on the lake and has the most beautiful views you could imagine.
