About the Property
3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
This is a great location if you're looking to get out and have an adventure or if you're just looking for a quiet get-a-way. The home has a fireplace and wrap around deck allowing you to either snuggle up on cold winter nights or sit outside and enjoy nature Spring through Fall. Deer, bear and wild turkeys are often seen on and around the property.
The association in which this home resides does not have a pool or swimming lake however we are minutes away from Hickory Run State park's lake which we often frequent and highly recommend.
We continue to update the house. In October and November of 2015 we put rug on the steps leading to the lower level, installed a new dishwasher, installed a new 50" flat screen HD TV on an articulating arm in the lower level, and painted the living room, dining room, kitchen and hallways. In March of 2016, we added a large amount of stone to the driveway making it a little more level from the road. View the picture under "photos" to see the difference this made.
On August 14th 2016, we got a new queen size futon for the lower level bedroom.The larger futon makes it a lot more comfortable, both due to the larger size and upgraded mattress.
Please be aware that the new Turnpike entrance is EZPass Only!

This is a secluded home that backs up to Hickory Run State Park. It is centrally located to multiple ski resorts, hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, paint ball, lake swimming, boulder fields and so much more.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: We are from the Philadelphia area. Married with five children. I moved here in 2010 when I got a job in the area and our family loved it. I have since moved on in my career and moved back to the Philadelphia area but we couldn't let this house go. We are up all the time and with the new EZ-pass that just opened on the Turnpike, we can make it to our Pocono hide-a-way in no time. When it's not rented, you're sure to find us there.
Why the Owner Chose Jim Thorpe, PA, USA:
We love it for it's seclusion and proximity to so many things. We take full advantage of all nature has to offer as you'll see from the pics and when you come to visit. Having an open floor plan for the living room, dining room and kitchen make it great for visiting with friends and family.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Wood burning fireplace. There's nothing like the smell of a good fire. Very large wrap around deck where you get to look at nothing but the forest and often see all types of wildlife.
