We are originally from Philadelphia. John is a local General Contractor and has been in the business for 30 years. Rita is a Hairstylist and worked in the Cherry Hill, New Jersey area for 20 years. We began buying fixer uppers locally and since we have always vacationed in the Pocono Mountains we began buying homes in which we loved the Bear Creek location so much that we lived there as our primary home. We really enjoyed waking up every day and looking out and seeing the water right outside our door! John loves to fish, and we really enjoyed the time we spent living in Bear Creek. We came back to live near Philadelphia to be closer to family and miss our time living at the Lake! Hopefully someday we plan on retiring in Bear Creek with our family.
Owner purchased this House in 2003
Why Owner chose Bear Creek Township
When looking for a vacation home we truly loved the Bear Creek location, the area is beautiful and we especially loved how close the house is to the lake. What sold us was once you enter the front door you see the lake from the 16 ft. picture window. We also loved that there were no other homes across the lake which makes this location even more beautiful.
What makes this House unique
We enjoy taking walks around the lake with our dogs. Waking up in the morning and sitting by the lake having our morning coffee is especially relaxing after a busy work week. We enjoy sitting out by the fire pit at night and roasting "Smores" for family time together.

Wanted a house on a quiet, good sized but not too big lake, which wasn't totally developed and had good fishing, for myself and two friends. Bingo. The house is very nice, very good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. Clean. Solid kitchen. Game room is sweet, we really enjoyed the air hockey table. Steps to the lake, nice fire pit. Fishing was excellent (the trout are at the dam!!).
Thank you so much, we appreciate you and your friends being such wonderful guests. We are glad that you Caught that "Whopper of a fish" a 25" Rainbow Trout is no joke! We look forward to hearing from you again next year!
Best to you,
John & Rita
Serene and private vacation home and yet so much to see in a short distance.
Thank you for sharing your cozy vacation home with us. We enjoyed bringing our 10 speeds and riding on the road after dinner. The hot tub was very relaxing overlooking the lake and taking a nap after fishing was a real treat from our usual busy days at work. Thanks again John and Rita for the relaxing week we were looking for.
Thank you so much for your kind words Rick & Wendy. We're glad you enjoyed your stay! We hope to hear from you again in the future. Thank you so much for being such good guests and taking such good care of our home!
Beautiful lakefront house - did not want to leave
My friends and I were looking for a quiet getaway from New York City for the weekend... and we found this place. The house itself is clean, in a quiet area, and the lake was stunning. John and Rita are excellent communicators, and they answered our questions right away. There are is a shopping center around 20 minutes from there, which has Walmart, Wegmans, etc. I would recommend this place if you want a peaceful, private getaway.
You and your friends were awesome guests and we appreciate your kind words. We strive to make our home very clean and comfortable and it pleases us that you and your friends had a great time. We would love to have you come back again soon. Thanks so much!

Quiet and relaxing with all the comforts of home
This rental property was perfect for my family. The four of us enjoyed the lake views and the quiet setting. The house has everything you need. John and Rita are wonderful, Answered questions when we arrived and got us settled. My teenage boys enjoyed the boat and fished every minute they could. We loved having the lake right in our back yard. Thank you for a relaxing week. We will definitely be doing this again.
Dear Christine, Thank you so much, you and your family were such great guests and we are glad that you enjoyed your week at the Lake. It is because of people like you that make this business a pleasure! We look forward to having you back again!

A home away from home
The spacious house was perfect for my family of four and another couple. My family occupied the upstairs area, whilst the other couple enjoyed some privacy by occupying the the downstairs bedroom and bathroom. The house was exceptionally clean and contained everything that you could need. John and Rita were a pleasure to deal with, always quickly responding to our queries. We enjoyed the quiet lake where we fished, swam, and canoed every day. Sometimes we felt as though it was our very own private lake. We also took advantage of the fire pit every evening. We will be sure to return to this lakefront house next summer. It is the perfect place to escape the city heat, hustle and bustle.
Dear Kevin and Naomi,
Thank you so much for your Kind words. you were really a pleasure to deal with and thank you for taking care of the house.

Our family had a great time in Bear Creek. The kids went to Knoebels, CamelBeach, went bike riding and spent many hours fishing and playing games in the game room as well as watching movies and world cup soccer ! My husband and I went to nearby Mohegan Sun for dinner and some fun playing the slots. The area around the lake was so relaxing and beautiful, and I truly enjoyed my daily walks with my dog!!! Making dinner was a breeze with everything a kitchen needs and more!!! A place we are sure to visit again!!!!! Thank you John and Rita for making our vacation so enjoyable!!!
Thank you Ann Marie. We appreciate you and your family and it truly was a pleasure dealing with you.
