About the property


One of the highlights of this delightful three bedroom (plus loft), two bath home is its location in the heart of the Pocono Mountains. Located in the popular Tanglwood Lake Estates area, away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Bear Cub Cottage sits just off Lake Wallenpaupack, Pennsylvania’s largest lake and the finest in all the Pocono Mountains. The cottage offers easy proximity to many area attractions and ski resorts at an affordable price. Bear Cub Cottage is clean and bright, and well-appointed.

Enjoy your coffee under the morning sun on one of two decks, or on the three-season porch. Amazing wildlife abounds – you may spot the rafter of neighborhood wild turkeys, black bears, deer by the dozens, our resident beavers, woodpeckers, and more! The house sleeps eight comfortably. The open floor plan makes this home the perfect getaway for family outings, or friends getting out of the city. It has a propane fireplace, full kitchen, breakfast bar and dining area, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer. The ceiling fans help to circulate the fresh Pocono air. There is propane grill for barbecues, and a stone fire pit for roasting marshmallows.

Take a walk on the Tanglwood Trail, or enjoy 300 acres of woodlands and hiking trails at Promised Land State Park. Enjoy a picnic at the Tanglwood gazebo, or a round of golf at Paupack Hills Golf Course. Bike ride. Bird watch. Enjoy peace and quiet, with the exception of a fun-loving beaver or woodpecker. Take your kayak for a spin on Tanglwood Lake, or fish the lake from our docks. Grill your catch, and complete your day by viewing a glorious sunset.

Near by activities include multiple nature sanctuaries, health spas, waterfalls, golf, Claws and Paws Wild Animal Park, Costa's Family Fun Center, horseback riding, white water rafting, and zip lining.

About Barbara

The owner grew up in Rockland County, New York, and Bear Cub Cottage is her dream home. As a young girl, she and her sister spent summers at their grandmother's home on Canandaigua Lake in upstate New York. After establishing a successful career, she began searching for waterview property where she could spend time with her own family and pass on some of her fondest childhood memories. When good friends relocated to northeast PA and Lake Wallenpaupack, she seized the opportunity to settle just off the lake in beautiful Tanglwood Lake Estates.

Barbara purchased this house in 2010

Why Barbara chose Greentown

Located in the prestigious community of Tanglwood Lake Estates, Bear Cub Cottage offers easy proximity to two fantastic lakes. Tanglwood Lake is located within the community amid residential homes and the Paupack Hills Golf and Country Club golf course. Lake Wallenpaupack is the largest and most beautiful lake in the Poconos. The tranquility of the Pocono Mountains is on display in this area.

What makes this house unique

BEAR CUB COTTAGE is located in the Tanglwood Lake Estates community, just off Lake Wallenpaupack and adjacent to Promised Land State Park and the Delaware State Forest. The Tanglwood Lake amenities are designed to offer residents and guests a wide variety of recreational opportunities. Centered in the community is the 35 acre Tanglwood Lake available for fishing (you will need a fishing license), canoeing, kayaking, etc. Hikers enjoy a walking trail around a wildlife preserve and a trout stream (the beavers are building dams right now). There is a park for the kids with swings etc., a basketball court, a softball field, and an asphalt track. There are tennis courts and a fitness center. Tanglwood Beach and Boat Marina are situated on 6 acres of Lake Wallenpaupack waterfront.

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Bear Cub Cottage. It was the perfect winter getaway for our large family. While in the area we enjoyed nearby skiing, tubing, movie theatre, restaurants, local shops, indoor water park, and some staying in and relaxing by the fire. Accommodations were everything we needed. The kids enjoyed the loft area and the "kid" touches in one of the upstairs bedrooms. The owner was kind, informative and accessible. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in this area!
