What is Buck Hill?

Buck Hill is the best of all worlds: a serene, private escape tucked into the natural beauty of the Pocono Mountains, yet situated close to New York and Philadelphia. Here, you can be as active as you want, in the ways you want, through golf, tennis, swimming, lawn bowling, hiking, fly fishing, cycling, skating, skiing, gardening, and more. Whether you’re looking to keep active or relax with family and friends, there’s something here for everyone.

Feels Like Home

Only 90 minutes from Philadelphia and New York City, Buck Hill Falls gives those who live in and love the urban life an opportunity to balance that energy with restorative serenity, rejuvenating fresh air, and health-enhancing recreation. In fact, that’s just what our Philadelphia-dwelling founders planned, over one hundred years ago.

Our family-friendly resort community offers a variety of lots and housing types, including modern, easy-care townhomes, quaint shingle-style cottages, and grand stone lodges. Wooded lots, cozy fieldstone fireplaces, and commodious porches abound. Buck Hillers enjoy the privacy of our small community, the camaraderie between neighbors, and the unmatched physical beauty of our surroundings: food for the body, heart, and soul.

Whether you choose to live here full-time or to revive your spirits with Buck Hill’s magic during summers, weekends, and holidays, you will soon agree with your neighbors: We are all lucky to have this place, and it feels like home.
