Retirement Homes and Living in The Poconos Mountains of Pennsylvania


In the Poconos Mountains, unlike places like central and southern NJ, there are only a few 55 + neighborhoods. This is because traditional retirement village developers have not built in this area. This is because, there are many existing non 55 plus communities appropriate for retirees without not age restrictions that come with the amenities most retirees want. Most importantly, many neighborhoods have homes that are low maintenance. Thus, there has never been a demand for 55+ communities.  As a result, there are only a few real aged restricted communities in the entire 2400 square mile Poconos Mountains region.

These are the age restricted (55 plus) neighborhoods and communities in the area:

Labar Village – Condos and townhomes. The largest 55 plus neighborhood in the region. Activities, common areas, transportation to shopping, church, town and etc. Townhomes allow some pets where the condos are pet restricted. Townhomes come with or without garage, all have bedrooms on the first level, some are single floor and some have loft or sleeping area for guests on a second level. All are air conditioned and most townhomes have fireplaces and decks or porches.

Golden Oaks – Homes on lots. Remote but traditional homes on lots with community clubhouse. Limited activities.

Crystal Park –  Townhomes only no amenities, walk to shopping. This is a very small neighborhood on a cul de sac in the downtown area of East Stroudsburg, PA. Well kept and convenient to shopping, services and the regional medical center.

Buttonwood Court – Mobile homes close to downtown East Stroudsburg. Very inexpensive housing in town and close but not walkable to shopping and services including medical services.

Robinwood Village – Townhomes outside of town. Remote but some activities and a feeling of being in the country. This community is sited on former farmland and each of the clusters of townhomes are a comfortable distance away from others. Feels like being on a farm but you have age appropriate neighbors an outdoor common pool and small clubhouse.

Suggestions on where to retire in the Poconos:

When considering living in the Poconos, consider The Hamlet for privacy (large lots) and Arrowhead Lakes for community activities. Think of Locust Lakes for price. Blue Mountain Lake for a luxury townhome, intown for convenience. A home in Lake in the Clouds where renters are discouraged or in town living in Stroudsburg or East Stroudsburg, PA might be a choice.

There are a number of condo / townhouse neighborhoods that locals consider for retirement. Labar Village, Stones Throw,  Northridge at Camelback, Crystal Park, The Oaks, and others.
