About Mike

Philadelphia residents since birth. We visit the Peaceful Pocono Getaway as often as possible.

Mike purchased this house in 2007

Why Mike chose Poconos

Any time of year is a good time to visit Bear Creek Lakes in the Pocono Mountains, located within driving distance of most major East Coast cities. Our property is centrally located with-in the community. Quite is the word as there are no properties across from ours.

The Pocono region steaming with history offers year-round cultural tours and art exhibitions, abundant antiquing and brand-name shopping and a full calendar of festivals showcasing the heritage, music and food of the Pocono Mountains.

What makes this house unique

Vacation fun and year 'round living begin at Bear Creek Lakes, in the heart of the lively Pocono Vacationland. Here, lying in the scenic Pocono's, 1500 feet above sea level, Bear Creek Lakes proudly takes its place high on the roster of America's finest communities. There's mountain beauty all around. Bear Creek Lakes is a peaceful and restful community of permanent residents and vacation homeowners. You'll find us to be the most enjoyable vacation spot you've ever known. For Bear Creek Lakes is a complete community in itself, only your imagination limits the exciting possibilities afforded at Bear Creek Lakes.

Located along Rt. 903, just eight and one half miles from the Mahoning Valley Turnpike Interchange, Bear Creek Lakes is close to the finest skiing and recreational facilities in the Pocono's. These include Big Boulder Ski Area and Split Rock. Close at hand is 26,000 acre game land 141, offering the finest grouse, rabbit, ring neck pheasant, squirrel, and deer hunting to be found anywhere. Other nearby points of recreational interest include Hickory Run State Park and the Francis E. Walter Dam on the Lehigh River.

Three miles of shoreline surrounds 160 acres of unspoiled Bear Creek Lake! The Lake is fully stocked perfect for fishing, sailing, boating, and swimming along with two private beaches. There is a heated Olympic size swimming pool and a wading pool, tennis courts, shuffleboard, bocce court, regulation softball field, basketball courts, volleyball courts, picnic areas and playgrounds. The community has a clubhouse and a large pavilion which are available for private parties.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a blast. The place is great, sat around fire pit everynight and ate smores,and drank beers. Relaxed in the cool Pocono air. The deck and patio are gorgeous, we grilled and had family meals on the big table. Everyone was comfortable, plenty of blamkets and sheets. We played our acoustical guitars at night. Went to Lehigh Gorge and hiked the falls, went swimming in the river and cool lake and hung around the house being lazy and relaxed. WE plan to return soon.

Perfect mountain escape

  • 4 of 5

Warm, comfortable, quiet property that was perfect for our family. Would only have been better if dryer and dishwasher were a bit speedier.

Very clean and super relaxing. We felt very comfortable here and Mike was great to work with.

  • 5 of 5

The outside firepit was awesome and the inside gas fireplace and living room were very cozy. The kitchen had all the amenities you could want if you like to cook. This property is very close to the town of Jim Thorpe so the location was perfect. I highly recommend this house.

Great place! The fire pit was the highlight of our weekend!

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat what is provided for the price. I booked this as a 40th birthday getaway with my childhood friends and two brothers. We grilled, used the awesome fire pit and laughed about the good old days. The area is quiet and secluded. We took a short walk to check out the lake and beach. The view was spectacular. Mike's neighbor John even gave us a hacksaw to cut some wood. You'll find it all over the place. Nice deck and kitchen and dining room table served as an area to play some card games. I was also amazed at how many beds were provided in the home. My friends want to make this a yearly event now. Thanks Mike, I'll definitely be contacting you again.

Great times for all!

  • 5 of 5

Hi everyone!

Mike was very helpful with any questions we had prior to booking the property.

It was a fabulous girl weekend getaway. Lots to do in Jim Thorpe. The home was clean and inviting!

Looking forward to going back next year and planning on using the same home if it's available.

My great nieces loved it.

Thanks again!

Spacious,Clean and Private

  • 5 of 5

Last week I took my family to this house for a well needed vacation. The online descriptions and reviews do this place little justice. I doubt I will be able to describe it well enough myself. The house itself is well thought out. From the light fixtures to the overall layout. We immediately felt at home and at ease. The kitchen is well designed for being social while preparing meals. I spent much time on the oversized deck with my kids,where we had our dinners and played. At night my wife and I sat in the yard tossing some wood in the fire pit. We were fortunate enough to have beautiful weather in order to take advantage of the pool and lake facilities. I also knew if we had rainy weather that the house was welcoming enough for my family to spend the day inside with all the comforts necessary to avoid cabin fever.

I will definitely be bringing my family back to this house for more rest and fun. The place is quite large!!

I highly recommend this (home) for a getaway. Im looking forward to booking our next stay.

Thank you Michael for really making this place as welcoming and comfortable as you did. You get it.

Owner's Response: Dear Chris, We were so happy to read your review to know that the house was everything we've meant it to be: a respite to spend time relaxing with family and friends. We "get it" because we've been in your boat. We love spending time with our kids there, too- even though they are all in college or beyond now. Our goal in renting is to help families make those memories that will last a lifetime. Jim Thorpe area/Bear Creek Community is a beautiful spot and we're both so happy that your family got to enjoy it all. We look forward to having you as guests again. PS - the winter is pretty great up there too ;-) Megan & Mike
