Towamensing Trails house description

Enjoy our contemporary home, A FEW YARDS to clubhouse with restaurant, pools, lake, game room, snack bar and live entertainment (summer). No need for a car or golf cart here! Large driveway has plenty of parking. Start your morning with a cup of coffee and deer-watching from one of 3 decks. Two-story home with living room & gas fireplace for cozy nights or entertaining, fully-stocked kitchen with dish washer, oven, microwave, and dining room with sliding glass doors leading to a 10 by 20 foot deck with table and gas grill.

Upstairs has two additional bedrooms, one queen-size with TV and one with bunk beds. The upper level has a large loft with full sofa bed and sliding doors leading out to another deck. Watch the deer and wild turkey wander through the back yard from the comfort of either back deck.
We are only 5 miles from skiing at Big Boulder, Split Rock (indoor water park!) and Jack Frost or Blue Mountain ski resorts. About 8 miles from the Poconos Raceway. A cozy vacation spot offering a crystal clear 192-acre stocked lake and nearby playground.

                      Owner info

                      Why the Owner Chose Towamensing Trails:
                      We love this house because our young children can run to the beach or bike to the marina without worry. Close to grab a bite to eat at the snack stand. We love the deer walking through our yard.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      You cannot get much closer to the Clubhouse, beach, pool, playground and game room. As a Towamensing Trails guest, you can make use of the snack stand and dine in the Clubhouse, listen to live bands and weekend DJs. Great location for families.
