About the Property
3 bedrooms, 2 baths
Located in the lovely private community of Bear Creek Lakes, this charming ranch home invites you to a peaceful getaway in the magnificent Pocono mountains, while also providing you with access to many local attractions if you’re also seeking an active holiday.
This beautiful home, surrounded by trees, was purchased in 2010. It has that fresh feeling that comes from recent construction and the loving care of its owner. A little piece of heaven.
Sitting quietly in the woods, Bear Creek Lakes is a charming community replete with amazing amenities. You’ll have access to a 160 acre lake with three miles of shoreline and two beaches (lifeguards provided during summer months). The lake is perfect for fishing, sailing, boating (rowboats and 5hp trolling boats), and swimming. You can also enjoy kayaking and canoeing. 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 playground. Access to all of these amenities is complimentary with your stay, and most are within walking distance of this property (including the south beach, the pool, tennis/basketball/vollyball courts, picnic area, and the playground).
This is truly a year-round destination. A large binder is located in the property, giving you brochures and contact information for the many local establishments.
