'Pocono Mac's'......

Private 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 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.

In the winter season, enjoy spectacular views of the frozen lake and snow covered mountains from the warmth of almost every room. Great sledding hill which is lit most nights, is only a 3 minute walk from our house. Great cross country skiing right from our door. Down hill ski areas are a short drive away (Big Boulder/Jack Frost = 30 min, Camel Back = 40 min, Montage Mountain = 30 minutes). Snowmobile trails at Lehigh Gorge and Hickory Run State Park (15 min drive). OUTDOOR PRIVATE HOT TUB (liability release form and $ 35 use fee applies .

From May through October, enjoy kayaking, canoeing, pontoon boats, etc. We have a 16' motorized pontoon boat, for rental at our dock. Must reserve in advance. We also have 2 canoes and 3 kayaks which can be used (liability release must be signed in advance and $$ fee applies). The lake, once used by the PA Fish Commission for spawning fish, is an electric only-motor lake. Excellent fishing for Large-mouth Bass, Perch, Pickerel, and even trout (lake stocked with Golden,Rainbow,Brown trout in spring for 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).

The home has a private beach with a campfire ring and expansive dock area with covered gazebo. Property borders 'forested green area' on lake front, giving exceptional privacy. 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, attractions are minutes away.

The house was custom built with cedar siding and mountain stone. The house has a beautiful floor to ceiling 16' wide mountain stone wood burning fireplace which is a favorite place to gather with friends or relax with a drink or book. The open floor plan allows for lake/mountain views in most every room. Custom bar area with 50' HD TV is a great place to watch sporting events and movies. The knotty-pine finished walk- out lower level also has lake views and large stone fireplace.. This level has a SLATE POOL TABLE, fooseball table, covered outdoor ping pong table, dartboard, board games, girls doll houses and a cable TV with movies for the kids and adults. Lower level also has large bedroom which sleeps (5) and full bath. Large wrap around deck provides plenty of areas to enjoy the lake front view and watch the birds and other wildlife(BALD EAGLES,woodpeckers,hawks,deer,raccoons,geese,ducks,loons,and occasionally a black bear.)

Please note that we do not have a house phone. However, we have Wi-Fi and most cell phones do get a good signal from our house.

Family Vacation Week...(7/2-9/16)

  • 5 of 5

We ALL spent a wonderful week in this beautiful Pocono Mountain Lake House (4 adults and 2 boys 11 and 16 yrs w/ a 16 yr old guest for 3 nights. PLENTY to keep anyone of any age entertained or just simply relaxing,fishing,boating,hot tub,game tables,fire pit at night,bird watching in the mornings with coffee from one of the 3 decks.House is clean and well equipped w/ anything you might need. We stayed over the 4th of July holiday and had the added bonus of a terrific fire works display over the lake enjoyed from our private dock. MOST ENJOYABLE week and the weather couldn't have been better ! If you are an older senior just be mindful there are steps inside and out ,but safe and well lite. Steve the owner was always available if needed and Woody the care taker was attentive but not at all intrusive. Highly recommended vacation home !

Best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family spent a week in this beautiful home. The owner and property manager are both very helpful and readily available. We swam, fished, and boated the days away and nights were spent around the fire pit or in the home playing games, out in the hot tub, or back on the water for a ride on the pontoon boat. Everything you need is there or a short ride to Walmart away. Have already recommended this home to others and plan to go back. You won't be sorry you spent a week in this lovely home in this beautiful, serene atmosphere.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great week at Pocono Mac's from June 25-July 2. We were 5 adults and 3 children ages 12, 8 & 4 and added 2 more adults and 2 children for a couple of nights. There was plenty of room for everyone.

The kitchen was well equipped - all you need is food. There is a WalMart 10 mins away and a Sunoco Station with a mini mart close by. The house was clean and well maintained. The pool table, foosball and ping pong table were an added bonus. Plenty to keep everyone happy with very little TV viewing!

We spent our days fishing, canoeing, kyacking, cruising the lake in the pontoon boat and just lounging on the dock and beach. The fire pit and hot tub also got plenty of use. My young granddaughters spent hours playing on the sandy beach. Before we arrived we thought we would go on an excursion or two but we were enjoying the lake house so much, we never left except for a couple food and bait runs.

Steve was very accommodating - discovered the first night the Mr Coffee wasn't working, sent him an E-mail and Woody, the caretaker, delivered a a brand new one the next morning.

This was a wonderful, relaxing vacation and I hope we can do it again in the future.

Perfect Lake Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Two families stayed at this house over Memorial Day weekend. There were four adults and four children and we all had plenty of room and plenty to do! This house had everything. Inside there were televisions, games, books, pool table, foosball, darts, and much more. However we didn't touch most of the inside stuff because there was so much for us to do outside. There were several kayaks for us to use (both single and double) and we paddled all around the lake. The pontoon boat was awesome! We took it out every day and fished for hours. We also went out on sunset cruises and the kids would jump off the boat into the lake. The boys also tied a couple of rafts off of the dock and just sat out there relaxing in the water. Night time was even more special. We would light a fire down at the beautifully landscaped fire pit and we would all sit on the deck listening to the music coming from the restaurant a short distance away. It was beyond relaxing. The kids had fun running around throughout the weekend and the adults had a great time sitting either on the deck or down on the large dock. Inside of the house had everything we needed. The kitchen cabinets even had some spices that I had forgotten to prepare our meal. The Walmart is a short drive away in case you forget anything but there really wasn't anything that we needed that wasn't in a drawer somewhere in the house. The house was very clean and spacious and the owner was wonderful to work with. I highly recommend this property if you're looking for the perfect late getaway.

Fantastic week on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, our five children and our 7 year old granddaughter spent this past week at Pocono Mac's lake house. This house was very roomy for the 8 of us, and it was the perfect combination of plenty to do yet relaxing. Really, there was no reason to say that you were bored here! But if you wanted to do nothing, this was also a great place to do that!

We went fishing on the pontoon boat, fishing off the beach, kayaked every day. We brought our own floats and floated and swam in the lake. We made fires in the firepit a couple of nights, ate s'mores, and really enjoyed the beautiful sunset over the lake. We used the outdoor hot tub a few times. We also did a lot of reading just sitting in the comfortable Adirondack and lounge chairs on the dock. The lake area is so peaceful and the scenery and wildlife are beautiful. We enjoyed seeing some deer while kayaking on the opposite side of the lake, swallows, two beautiful swans were ever present on the lake. We kayaked back to Turtle Cove a couple of times and saw a huge snapper turtle and water lilies in bloom.

We enjoyed playing tennis at the club house. Our granddaughter enjoyed a day at the kid's camp that was available one day during the week for 5 hours where they took a nature walk and other activities.

Having kayaked and pontooned around on the lake this week quite a few times, I can also say that Pocono Mac's has the BEST dock/beach area of all of the houses of the lake. There is no question about it.

We went to the WalMart in Hazleton, an easy 15 minute drive, stocked up on food for the week, and enjoyed cooking dinner every night and eating as a family at the table (seats 8) in the dining area. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, bowls, pots and pans, utensils.

There were a few late night intense pool games at the ground level pool table. There is also a foosball table, and ping pong outside on the patio.

The view of the lake and mountain from the upstairs bedrooms is so peaceful and beautiful. The huge jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom is awesome.

Just a heads up that we brought our own kayaks and the clubhouse charged us $30 each for them. It was worth it to us because we like our own, but there are also canoes and kayaks there at the dock for you to use.

Have a great time at the lake! If you bring your own food, there is no reason to leave at all.
