Why James Reichert chose Bushkill
The property is located in a gated community with armed security. We are on top of the mountain where it is very peaceful and away from the hustle bustle. We are very finicky about the cleanliness of the house for our guests. The house layout is spread out to minimize crowdedness. Great for socializing. You will love it. Relax in this comfortable quiet setting atop the mountain. 5500 sq ft of living space. Gaze out the windows and observe wildlife that will practically eat out of your hand. Play a game of pool, ping pong, or foosball while enjoying the game on big screen tv. Fishing, skiing, Nascar, gambling, snow tubing, horseback riding, waterparks, zip line, golfing, go-karting, or use the community pool, play tennis, basketball or exercise in the exercise room to mention just a few of the great entertaining activities available to you . The house provides plenty of entertainment in itself. Enjoy the benefits of a hot tub, sweat it out in the sauna, play a game of horseshoes, pool table, foosball, ping pong, playstation 2, plenty of toys for the children. Feel like cooking outside. Take advantage of the outdoor kitchen set up on a large deck. This is a one of a kind family house that provides all you need for a great vacation. Sweat it out in the sauna, relax in the hot tub, play a game of horseshoes, create your own masterpiece in the crafts room, team up for a game of ping pong, shoot a game of pool, take challenges in foosball, socialize in the screened porch or sit out in the open air on the large deck or do some outdoor cooking on the large gas grill. You have your own mini resort at your fingertips.

Beautiful and spacious!
Everything we needed was in place. The property is spacious and very comfortable. The owner was very quick to respond to our questions and was very helpful! We would definitely recommend this ptoperty!
Great vacation home for a large group
My husband and I rented this house for ourselves and our three adult children and their partners. There are 4 BRs with queen/king size beds and each has a dedicated bathroom (the other BR - maybe there are two?- has twin size beds), so the sleeping arrangements were easy and comfortable for our group. The bathrooms have plenty of towels.
The living room is cozy with a lot of comfortable seating so we could all hang out together. The dining table seats 8, which was exactly our size, so also perfect. The kitchen has most of the basics, though it only had a few wine glasses, which seemed odd for a vacation house with two bars. It could also use some casserole/baking dishes. But it was otherwise reasonably well equipped and the stove/oven worked very well.
We planned to cook all our meals, so we brought a lot of food and drink with us. There's a 2nd fridge in the garage, which is great for drinks that don't fit in the kitchen fridge. The deck is broken up into two areas and the grill, which is huge and looks fantastic, is actually in need of repair as not all the burners were lighting. So grilling a meal for our large group was a little challenging. The owner, Jim, was very responsive via text whenever we had a concern, so I assume he will quickly take care of getting this repaired but he wasn't able to do anything for us. (We learned that, sadly, Larry (the other owner about whom there were so many wonderful reviews) passed away suddenly earlier this year.) Jim appears to have stepped up to the plate. We enjoyed the outdoor hot tub and the indoor sauna very much - especially after an afternoon of canoeing on the Delaware.
The neighborhood is nice and quiet and the community pool was very pleasant and not too crowded the day we went. We really appreciated that there was no extra charge for using it as there sometimes are in other communities.
The house is clean and well kept but not at all fancy. Overall, I recommend it for a week-long stay.
Our family had a wonderful time vacationing in Bushkill! The house was perfect for our extended family - large enough for eight adults and two children. Everyone had their own space, and there was something for everyone at the house - toys, and community pool for the kids, a hot tub, sauna and pool table for the adults! And it was located close to many natural attractions, water falls, places to hike, and our favorite, the Tannerville Cranberry Bog! Loved the deer and wild turkeys that seemed to be a permanent part of the neighborhood!
We would definitely recommend it for any large family gathering!
Thank you Bertha! We're thrilled that you and your family had such a wonderful stay. Come back and see us anytime!
There was lots of space for our group of 20 (wouldn’t advise for all adults...some kids used air mattresses & that was fine for us) to spread out on the property....several porches to hang out at, plenty of sofas in the main room, and a good size driveway for cornball and kids soccer. The pool was great, and surprisingly empty during the Sunny midweek days.
Due to no direct fault of James, there were some minor issues/communication ....assuming they are addressed by now.
Thank you, Doris. I'm glad everyone had a really good time. Yes, all grill burners are repaired and fully operational. Thank you for the "heads-up." I hope you choose the Wild Eagle again!
House is efficient for large family. Very clean, everything you need to make yourself at home. The hot tub, pool table and the Sauna room was a huge hit!! Plenty of room for everyone one!! Larry was easy to work with. He answer all my questions! Thank you for sharing your home with my family. I will definitely recommend this home!! I would definitely return!!
Big and comfortable
Great layout for a large group. We were 16 total and were all comfortable. Larry’s easy to work with. Convenient location. Beds were comfy, plenty of towels and linens, and the house is stocked!
Dual masters made for less fighting, and the “den” upstairs slept two kids happily. We rent a lot of homes and this one is one of the best we’ve rented.
