Are you looking for a mountain getaway where you can enjoy an active, yet relaxing lifestyle and rejuvenating fresh air in a pristine natural setting? Buck Hill Falls has it all. Founded by Philadelphia Quakers in 1901, the Quaker values of respect for nature, community, equality and simplicity have endured and remain relevant. Nestled in the majestic Pocono Mountains, Buck Hill Falls offers a variety of housing (all with creekstone fireplaces and spacious porches), from grand stone lodges and shingle-style cottages (many over 100 years old) to newer townhomes on the fairways of its legendary Donald Ross golf course. Building lots serviced by paved roads, water and sewer are also available.
In addition to the 27 hole golf course, there are 10 Har-Tru tennis courts, an olympic size pool, competition worthy lawn bowling greens, a summer day camp for children and teens, Blue Ribbon fly fishing streams, and more than 40 miles of well maintained hiking, biking and nordic skiing trails that meander along gurgling streams and falls – including the signature Buck Hill Falls. Winter activities include sledding, skating, paddle and pickle, and relaxing in front of that grand stone fireplace in your cottage. The Fairway Grille, adjacent to the golf club, is available for relaxed dining indoors on the terrace, or delivery to your cottage; and the Pool Grille, situated on the pool patio, is convenient for casual lunches and dinners.
All homes are referred to as “cottages,” and all cottagers are members of all the sporting clubs and other amenities, which adds to the congenial atmosphere of this engaging community. Buck Hillers of all ages return for the annual 4th of July celebration, the Christmas Yule log hunt, and to enjoy other treasured traditions, solidifying Buck Hill Falls’ reputation as a premier multigenerational family resort community for all seasons and ages. A world away, but less than 2 hours from New York and Philadelphia, Buck Hill feels like home. Contact one of our local realtors for more information.
