Pocono area Lake Front Home. Please note, this property is located about 20 minutes west of Lake Harmony, on a larger, private 130 acre lake named "Lake of the Four Seasons" which is in the community called "Beech Mountain Lake". It is an electric motor only lake. Easy access off I-80 (Mt. Top exit), just east of the I-81/I-80 junction. Enjoy a beautiful 130 acre lake on the western edge of the Pocono region. Escape the commercialism and crowds of other Pocono area lakes. Beech Mountain Lake is a private gated community with it's own freshwater lake. New York City is 2 hours to the east, Philadelphia is two hours to the south, and historic Jim Thorpe is 30 minutes away.
In the winter season, enjoy spectacular views of the frozen lake and snow covered mountains. Great sledding hill is lit most nights and is only a 3 minute walk from our house. Downhill ski areas are a short drive away (Big Boulder/Jack Frost = 30 min, Camel Back = 40 min, Sno Mountain = 30 minutes). Snowmobile trails at Lehigh Gorge and Hickory Run State Park (15 min drive). Once you have worn yourself out in the wintery wonderland, you can come home and soak in the hot tub (liability release form required).
In the spring, summer and fall, enjoy kayaking and the pontoon boats. We have an 18' motorized pontoon boat for rental at our dock. You must reserve in advance (liability release form and fee applies). We also have two kayaks which can be used (liability release must be signed in advance). The lake, once used by the PA Fish Commission for spawning fish, is an electric only-motor lake. Excellent fishing for Largemouth Bass, Perch, Pickerel, and even trout (lake stocked with Palomino, Rainbow, and Brown trout in spring for the kids fishing derby). Enjoy spectacular mountain views and clear blue skies while boating on the lake or relaxing on the deck and beach. Lake is excellent for swimming. Our private beach is great for kids to play in the sand! Swim off the floating dock. Whitewater rafting and biking on the "Rails to Trails" at Lehigh Gorge State Park (20 minutes away).
You can also enjoy the community clubhouse which has its own restaurant and lounge. Virtually all the activities you can imagine that you could do outdoors in Pennsylvania, you can do here. Restaurants, shopping, and attractions are minutes away.
The great room is on the main (second) floor with wood cathedral ceilings and a full wall of windows with beautiful lake and mountain views. Also on the main floor is a large well stocked kitchen with an island. In addition to a regular coffee pot, there is a Keurig brewer available for use. This floor also has a ½ bath, the master bedroom and a master bath. Just outside on the deck is a screened in hot tub that seats 5. The top floor features two bedrooms, a full bath and a loft that overlooks the great room. You can sleep up to 6 on this level. The lower level hosts a cozy family room with a 42” TV and an X-Box 360. There is also a ¾ bath and the laundry room. The lower and main rooms have access to two decks that provide lake front views to watch the wildlife (birds, Bald Eagles, water fowl, deer, raccoons, and even an occasional black bear).
The "Clubhouse" has an indoor pool, indoor basketball and racquetball courts, game room, lounge and restaurant with an outdoor dining deck. Outside the clubhouse you can find tennis court, volleyball, shuffleboard, bocce court, private swimming beach, basketball court and kids playground. You are permitted to use these facilities with our membership card.

A good friend introduced us to the area during a Girl Scout outing and we fell in love with the area so we purchased the house next door.
We wanted a quiet getaway for our family. This house's private dock and quiet lake make an ideal year round vacation spot. Our family loves it.
The views from our home overlooking the lake are different every day. Private, very quiet and relaxing.
