When looking for a vacation home we truly loved the Bear Creek location, the area is beautiful and we especially loved how close the house is to the lake. What sold us was once you enter the front door you see the lake from the 16 ft. picture window. We also loved that there were no other homes across the lake which makes this location even more beautiful.
We enjoy taking walks around the lake with our dogs. Waking up in the morning and sitting by the lake having our morning coffee is especially relaxing after a busy work week.
Dear John & Rita,
Everything about this trip was a complete pleasure. Thank you for the care you took to ensure that we arrived safe. Your communication as property owners was Top Notch!
We did a little bit of everything, satisfying every persons whim in our little family of four on this beautiful long weekend.
We spent much of our first rainy day indoors, playing in the Game roomand we took a trip into Wilkes Barre. We had fun meeting new Crossfit friends and NEPA crossfit and even more fun at Wegmans! We brought home some delicious steaks and grilled followed by Smores at the Fire Pit.
The sun came out the second day and we spent most of it hopping back and forth from the boats to the hot tub.
Forgot to mention the delicious pizza we got our first night at Cosenza's but can't fail to mention the marvelous dinner we had at the Bear Creek Inn. We recommend a reservation, as it got us seated upon arrival in a room full of people waiting for a a table. Can't wait to eat my veal leftovers for breakfast soon! They definitely do Italian right there.. Mangia! Despite our full bellies, we could not pass up the appple dumpling ice cream stand on our way home that night (115 & Meadow Run Rd) One happy guy there walked away with 6 in hand!
We had the perfect evening with a fire in the fireplace and a family video. We also like reading this Guestbook, seeing how others enjoyed their time here. Hope you enjoy reading about our adventures. We sure enjoyed having them. We also saw some Newts. They were so cute! I (Valory) named them, their names were Bob, Joe, Freddy and Newton. We had so much fun and I can't wait till we come back! Thank you!!
The house was more than what I expected for the price. The description was accurate but the pictures on the website did not do the house justice. The property was clean and well-maintained. We arrived on a day when it was snowing and the drive-way was covered with snow but as soon as we pulled up, there was someone there to plow the snow so that we could pull our car in. The owners were very helpful via E-mail and by phone. I did not have any problems getting in contact with the owners. My friends joined me at this property and it's definitely a place where we would come back to stay. The only negative comment I would make about the property was that the weekend stay was too short. We were only able to check in on Friday after 3:00pm and then check out on Sunday was at 11:00am. We also have to wash the sheets before heading out on Sunday so we had to wake up really early to get everything ready to head out on Sunday. If we checked in at 3:00pm on Friday, we should at least be able to check out on Sunday at 3:00pm as well. Checking out later on Sunday would give us time to clean, get all our belongings together and time to eat before getting on the road.
The spacious house was perfect for my family of four and another couple. My family occupied the upstairs area, whilst the other couple enjoyed some privacy by occupying the the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. The house was exceptionally clean and contained everything that you could need. John and Rita were a pleasure to deal with, always quickly responding to our queries. We enjoyed the quiet lake where we fished, swam, and canoed every day. Sometimes we felt as though it was our very own private lake. We also took advantage of the fire pit every evening. We will be sure to return to this lakefront house next summer. It is the perfect place to escape the city heat, hustle and bustle.
My friends and I were looking for a quiet getaway from New York City for the weekend... and we found this place. The house itself is clean, in a quiet area, and the lake was stunning. John and Rita are excellent communicators, and they answered our questions right away. There are is a shopping center around 20 minutes from there, which has Walmart, Wegmans, etc. I would recommend this place if you want a peaceful, private getaway.
This rental property was perfect for my family. The four of us enjoyed the lake views and the quiet setting. The house has everything you need. John and Rita are wonderful, Answered questions when we arrived and got us settled. My teenage boys enjoyed the boat and fished every minute they could. We loved having the lake right in our back yard. Thank you for a relaxing week. We will definitely be doing this again.
Our family had a great time in Bear Creek. The kids went to Knoebels, CamelBeach, went bike riding and spent many hours fishing and playing games in the game room as well as watching movies and world cup soccer ! My husband and I went to nearby Mohegan Sun for dinner and some fun playing the slots. The area around the lake was so relaxing and beautiful, and I truly enjoyed my daily walks with my dog!!! Making dinner was a breeze with everything a kitchen needs and more!!! A place we are sure to visit again!!!!! Thank you John and Rita for making our vacation so enjoyable!!!
This house is great! It had everything that was stated. All 6 of us had more room than we knew what to do with! Hot tub was enjoyed by all! The house was very clean and very comfortable. Being on the lake for the weekend was a true getaway. Couldn't have been better!! Rita and John were fantastic and so responsive for any and all requests.Thank you John and Rita for a great weekend.
