My family and I had a very wonderful time staying at the Bear creek lake retreat. The house was beautiful and relaxing, and there are many places near by that you can visit. I hope to stay here again in the future :)
Located in the mountains this house is a great weekend escape. Surrounded be trees and a nearby lake for ice fishing and skating. The house was immaculately clean and stocked with everything we needed. The fire place was warm and cozy and the snow made for a perfect winter wonderland.The owner and care keeper are great people. 5 stars for me.
We had such a wonderful stay at the Bear Creek Lake Retreat! We visited between Dec. 27-30. It was very cold outside but so warm and cozy inside. The house was clean and well stocked with all the kitchen supplies we needed to make home-cooked meals. We brought 4 children along (5 and under). We enjoyed playing with snow outside on the deck and taking short walks to the playground behind the house. We also spent a day in downtown Jim Thorpe taking a ride on the train and shopping. Thank you for letting us stay! We can't wait to book again soon!!!!
The only reason we had rented this home was for the 'lake views' that it advertised. We could not see the lake at all from the house! It was a short walk to the lake, but we did not get to enjoy a lake view from the deck as it claimed there was. Also, there was no dishwasher, which was listed under the amenities. All that aside, the home was immaculate and was comfortable, so those were the pluses. The ad for this home should be updated to be more accurate, so it does not come up under a search for lake view properties. Although we were extremely disappointed that there was no lake view, we still enjoyed our stay.
