Lake Village Just outside of Lake Harmony, PA adjacent to Big
Boulder Ski and Snow board Mountain, This is a four season destination
(ok.... well 3 since not much goes on during Spring). With lake
and ski activities nearby. Some homes in Boulder Lake Village
have winter views of Big Boulder Lake and the ski slopes. In
Summer, though, because of the trees, most homes here just feel
like they are in the woods. Lake Harmony
Lake has a restaurant overlooking the lake and a "club"
with small boat sailing, kayaking, canoeing and swimming. Lake Harmony
power boating and jet skiing is about 3 miles away. In addition,
Split Rock Resort with its restaurants, indoor water park and festivals
is only about 4 miles.
Buying Tip: If you buy a home at Big Boulder consider purchasing
a timeshare at Split Rock Resort to be able to use the resort amenities
year around. Sometimes, you can purchase a real cheap week online!
In winter, Big Boulder resort is the highest resort in the Poconos
so it usually opens first . It is, however one of the smallest both
in trails and elevation drop (between 6 and 700 feet). For families,
this is a great place to have a second home. There is more than
enough to do to keep kids occupied for months and it sits on the
top of the Pocono Plateau, so it is usually 8-12 degrees cooler
than Philly or NYC. It should take less than 2 hours from Philadelphia
or New York.
