'Pocono Mac's'......

Private Pocono area Lake front Home. Please note, this property is located about 20 minutes west of Lake Harmony, on a larger, private 130 acre lake named 'Lake of the Four Seasons' which is the community called 'Beech Mountain Lake'. It is an electric motor only lake. Easy access off I-80 / Mt. Top exit (just east of the I-81/I-80 junction). Enjoy a beautiful 160 acre lake on the western edge of the Pocono region. Escape the commercialism and crowds of other Pocono area lakes. Beech Mountain Lake is a private gated community with it's own freshwater lake.

In the winter season, enjoy spectacular views of the frozen lake and snow covered mountains from the warmth of almost every room. Great sledding hill which is lit most nights, is only a 3 minute walk from our house. Great cross country skiing right from our door. Down hill ski areas are a short drive away (Big Boulder/Jack Frost = 30 min, Camel Back = 40 min, Montage Mountain = 30 minutes). Snowmobile trails at Lehigh Gorge and Hickory Run State Park (15 min drive). OUTDOOR PRIVATE HOT TUB (liability release form and $ 35 use fee applies .

From May through October, enjoy kayaking, canoeing, pontoon boats, etc. We have a 16' motorized pontoon boat, for rental at our dock. Must reserve in advance. We also have 2 canoes and 3 kayaks which can be used (liability release must be signed in advance and $$ fee applies). The lake, once used by the PA Fish Commission for spawning fish, is an electric only-motor lake. Excellent fishing for Large-mouth Bass, Perch, Pickerel, and even trout (lake stocked with Golden,Rainbow,Brown trout in spring for kids fishing derby). Enjoy spectacular mountain views and clear blue skies while boating on the lake or relaxing on the deck and beach. Lake is excellent for swimming. Our private beach is great for kids to play in the sand! Swim off the floating dock. Whitewater rafting and biking on the 'Rails to Trails' at Lehigh Gorge State Park (20 minutes away).

Enjoy hiking trails and cross country ski trails at Nescopeck State Park, just a couple miles down the road (

Take the kids to the new popular waterpark, Kalahari! Just about a 20 minute drive from our community (

The home has a private beach with a campfire ring and expansive dock area with covered gazebo. Property borders 'forested green area' on lake front, giving exceptional privacy. Enjoy the community clubhouse which has its own restaurant and lounge. Virtually all the activities you can imagine that you could do outdoors in Pennsylvania, you can do here. Restaurants, shopping, attractions are minutes away.

The house was custom built with cedar siding and mountain stone. The house has a beautiful floor to ceiling 16' wide mountain stone wood burning fireplace which is a favorite place to gather with friends or relax with a drink or book. The open floor plan allows for lake/mountain views in most every room. Custom bar area with 50' HD TV is a great place to watch sporting events and movies. The knotty-pine finished walk- out lower level also has lake views and large stone fireplace.. This level has a SLATE POOL TABLE, fooseball table, covered outdoor ping pong table, dartboard, board games, girls doll houses and a cable TV with movies for the kids and adults. Lower level also has large bedroom which sleeps (5) and full bath. Large wrap around deck provides plenty of areas to enjoy the lake front view and watch the birds and other wildlife

(our two resident White Swans, Bald Eagles, woodpeckers, hawks, raccoons, geese, loons, and occasional Black Bear!).

Please note that we do not have a house phone. However, we have Wi-Fi and most cell phones do get a good signal from our house.

We prefer renting to families or groups of mature couples.

The 'Clubhouse' has an indoor pool,indoorbasketball, racquetball outdoor tennis court, volleyball, outdoor shuffleboard, outdoor bocce court, private swimming beach, outdoor basketball court, kids playground area, game room, lounge and restaurant with outside deck dining. You are permitted to use these facilities with payment of service/useage fee.

Miniature golf, driving range, and 18 hole golf course (Edgewater Golf Course) is 2 minutes from the entrance of the community. Sand Springs is another well known course which is about 5 miles from Beech Mountain Lakes.

We generally do not rent to groups of singles/younger people.. Our home is best suited for family outings, not party groups.

Great time with family!

We had a great time at this house! Everything was as described. The kids enjoyed the games and hot tub and we enjoyed a crackling fire every night’. We hope to return in the summer.

This was an amazing place to stay, and exactly as depicted in the listing! We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely beautiful, the location is perfect! We originally just wanted a cabin in the woods with a fireplace and a hot tub, within driving distance of Ricketts Glen to do some hiking...but when we rented this place, we got way more than we bargained for. This lake house was amazing. Definitely enjoyed the scenery of the lake every morning, and since it rained all weekend, the lake house kept us entertained as it is well equipped with enough recreational activities to last a month. We really enjoyed the fireplace, hot tub, pool table, fooseball, and even played twister! I think we may have added SkipBo to their game collection because it didn't come home with us. Pocono Mac's is definitely worth visiting! My only regret is that we only spent a weekend there, definitely need more time off work!! The property owner was very informative, friendly, and available for questions. We had an excellent experience!

Family celebrations

  • 5 of 5

The entire posting for this property is absolutely accurate! You could not ask for lovelier accommodations and amenities. For our 50th anniversary our children treated us to a weekend to celebrate with them and their children. We were able to enjoy great family time even though the weather was not very cooperative! We did manage to get in a little time on the boat and in the hot tub and in between rain showers on Mother's Day my son was the grilling chef. A return trip to this great home would be a real treat.

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Me and bunch of close friends wanted to have a get-away-weekend with just the guys, I was looking online for a nice spot on a lake, I just so happen to come across this beauty and I'm glad I did. The property owner was very nice, responsive, accurate with all the information, and when we got there the house was a great condition. I had a great time and would love to come back again.

I plan on coming back again but this time with my family.

Perfect retreat for a Winter Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have a group of 9-10 over-age-60 friends who rent different properties around the Pocono Mountain area over President's Day weekend. We look for a house that is lakeside, has a pool table, fireplace and an outdoor hot tub. This property in Beech Mountain Lakes ticked all of our boxes for a fun filled yet relaxing weekend. The chalet-style house is beautifully maintained and is located in a very private setting and offers stunning views of the lake. It is lovingly decorated with a bear motif throughout the entire house and so quintessential of the Pocono Mountains! We bring our own meals and the kitchen is well stocked with all of the tools, utensils, cooking pots/pans and serving dishes needed for our group of nine. There is a fireplace in the main living area that keeps the house nice and cozy and the wood is included. We loved using the outdoor hot tub and everyone in our group took turns soaking in the large and extremely clean spa that offers terrific views of the lake. There is a good pool table and fooz ball and a large screen TV in the lower level game room. We were lucky that President's Day weekend 2017 provided warm and sunny weather and we were able to build campfires in the firepit and sit in the comfy Adirondack chairs enjoying the wildfowl on the lake! Not your typical February weather. Nescopeck State Park is only a ten minute drive away and provides free use of their cross-country skis and snow-shoes on the weekends, provided there is sufficient snowfall. Unfortunately, we were not able to use the equipment due to lack of snow but enjoyed a nice walk around the lake. The owner of the property is very responsive and got back to us promptly to answer our questions. I would recommend this property for any group who wants to get away from it all and spend relaxing time on a lake. You can do as much as you like or nothing at all! This house has something for everyone!
