Overview

About the property

House, 4 bedrooms + Loft. Sleeps 12+, 3.5 baths,hot tub, new hardwood floors

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. If you are requesting more than 2 nights during the non

summer period, the calculator does not work. Please contact me for a quote.

In the spring, summer and fall, enjoy kayaking and fishing. We have a pontoon boat for rent. We also have

a large dock and 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

8 on this level. The lower level hosts a new family /game room with a 42” TV and an X-Box 360, billiards, ping pong table, game table and bar area.

There is also a 2nd master bedroom on this level with a king log bed, full bath, lake front views and deck. The the laundry room is also on this level. 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 half court 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.

Please note that we do not have a house phone. We do have Wi-Fi and

most cell phones do get a good signal from our house.

About Steve Macdonald

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.

Steve Macdonald purchased this house in 2011

Why Steve Macdonald chose Drums

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.

What makes this house unique

The views from our home overlooking the lake are different every day. Private, very quiet and relaxing.

Lovely home with all the amenities!

We had a very enjoyable stay! The home was very well appointed. We loved cruising the lake in the pontoon boat and kayaks. We will return again!

Slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our families loved our stay at this lake house. We were looking for something different from the yearly beach vacation with all of the traffic, people and sand. This was the ultimate relaxing place. Steve was great to work with and Woody the manger was so kind. The inside of this house is nice, but the outside is awesome. It was quiet, serene and gave you the sense of being back to a natural, simplistic time. Having the pontoon boat, kayaks and hot tub to use was wonderful. We played card games on the amazing deck and watched the sunset on the lake. If you are looking for a peaceful vacation and away from the hustle and bustle of crowds, this is your dream place to stay. We will definitely book here again!!!

Excellent - return renter

  • 4 of 5

Home was clean, well equipped and ready upon check-in as always. Small issue was taken care of immediately by Woody, the local care taker. They did swap out the boat that was included in prior rental seasons for an older model, but it works well and is great to have on the lake. This is a gem of a rental as location, amenities and cleanliness of the home coupled with the onsite caretaker cannot be beat when renting other Poconos vacation homes. Do not hesitate to book this property as I believe you will be as satisfied as I have been with each rental.
