Just walking distance to the lake, beach, pool and clubhouse, our new four-bedroom mountain home provides a perfect opportunity to enjoy a quiet weekend getaway. Have a romantic escape or bring the extended family! With a queen size bed and a full size bed in the two masters and two bunk beds in each of the other two bedrooms (with a spare mattress on the floor), there's plenty of room. Every bedroom has its own TV plus there's a plasma TV in the living room. There's even an outdoor hot tub to relax in after a day of skiing. With a DVD player in the living room, board games, and a bumper pool table, which converts to a poker table you'll never want for entertainment. In the basement we have a pool table and a bar for your enjoyment also. Just 10 minutes from the best skiing and tubing on the east coast (Big Boulder and Jack Frost) and 20 minutes from Camelback. You can also go Horseback riding, white-water rafting and golf or go fishing in the trout-stocked lake or nearby streams.

On-site activities: Our house is brand new and professionally cleaned before each stay. It is in a very quiet area, surrounded by woods. We have often seen as many as ten deer simultaneously wandering through our back yard in addition to flocks of turkeys. You can soak in the hot tub and gaze at the stars or watch the deer wander through the yard, The development of Towamensing Trails offers many activities on site, such as swimming, boating, fishing, basketball, tennis in addition to a large playground and a game room.

Our family has been living in NJ for several years. We have ties to Long Island and New England and spend a lot of time visiting our extended families. Travel is a big part of our lives and we try to visit new places when we can.
We love to ski and thought the Poconos would be a nice place to have a vacation home that is not too far away. We hired a local builder and had the house built for us in 2007. We wanted a front porch and a back deck with a hot tub to sit and relax before or after a day of activities. Since we were not be able to use the house every weekend we wanted to share our home with others so they can enjoy activities in the Poconos.
This property is on a quiet street in the development. We like the peacefulness, watching the deer at breakfast time in the backyard, and going to the lake and pool. We like taking walks in the development and riding bikes. In the fall, you can just sit and look at all the beautiful leaves when you sit outside.
