Lake Harmony vacation rentals

Lake Harmony—a cool choice for family vacations

During the first decades of the 20th century, Lake Harmony became a popular summer retreat for hot-and-bothered Pennsylvanian urbanites, attracted by its cool climate and refreshing mountain air. Since those early days, demand for Lake Harmony vacation rentals has increased year-on-year, especially among families looking for a comfortable home-from-home in the great outdoors. The beautiful Pocono Mountains provide multiple recreational opportunities, from white-water rafting to horseback riding, while Split Rock Resort offers all-season activities including swimming, mini-golf, and bowling.

Fishy tales in Lake Harmony

Lake Harmony is one of Pennsylvania’s most popular fishing spots, where experienced and novice anglers alike come to pit their wits against king salmon, trout, and bluegill. Boats can be rented from the dock in Split Rock Resort, and local bait and tackle shops are happy to offer general advice about the best spots or to help you hire a guide. Make a day of it, with a tasty picnic followed by a scenic stroll along the lakeside, then head home with your fresh catch—most Lake Harmony vacation rentals provide barbecue grills for spontaneous home-cooked suppers under the stars.

Making a splash in Lake Harmony

A different sort of water activity awaits at H2Oooohh! This well-equipped water park features a wealth of exciting attractions, including thrilling slides, a wave pool, and a flow rider. Kids will love exploring the colorful jungle play structure and taking turns to be “dumped” from the water bucket while the grown-ups relax in the Lava Springs hot tubs or chat over a drink in the Island Oasis Snack Shack. The water park is situated within Spilt Rock Resort and is open to non-residents—hours of operation vary according to season, so check with the resort before you set out.

Lake Harmony through the seasons

Lake Harmony enjoys 4 distinct seasons, each lending itself to a range of leisure pursuits. Lake Harmony vacation rentals in the mountains come into their own during the winter ski season, when natural snowfall is enhanced by the latest snow-making technology. As the temperatures begin to rise around March, walking and mountain-biking trails are sprinkled with spring flowers. Summer is a popular season for action-packed family vacations, with the mountain breezes providing welcome respite from humidity. Fall, when the days are still warm enough to enjoy kayaking or golf, is a good time to pick up late-season bargains in Lake Harmony vacation rentals.

Lake Harmony’s scenic neighbor

Lehigh Gorge State Park is around 25 miles southwest of Lake Harmony, providing a dramatic contrast to the gentle contours of the lakeside. The gorge was once an important transshipment point for barges between the Lehigh Canal and the mountain railway network, and a ride on the park’s scenic railway is a fun way to explore this spectacular natural phenomenon. Narrated trips depart daily from downtown Jim Thorpe. Black bears, white-tailed deer, wild turkeys, and rabbits can often be spotted from the carriage windows.
