Just Listed in the Poconos: Luxury Beach Resort on Roamingwood Lake

This sprawling contemporary in a gated community comes with not only an equally sprawling deck but also its own lakeside resort.

This looks like a typical contemporary Poconos house, doesn’t it? Looks can be deceiving, for there’s nothing typical about this spread at 593 Pocono Court, Lake Ariel, PA 18342 | Photos: Steven Wallace Media via Greater Scranton Association of Realtors MLS and The Hub Real Estate Group

As readers of this section should know by now, The Hideout in Lake Ariel is one of the best-equipped resort communities in the Poconos. In addition to three large lakes and four ponds, a clubhouse, a lodge, campgrounds, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, two heated swimming pools, recreational sports and fitness centers, regular and miniature golf courses, two beaches, art and woodworking studios, 250 acres of woodlands and a dog park, the community also has its own ski slope and a tubing run.

Apparently, all this wasn’t enough for the owner of this Lake Ariel beach resort house for sale, because this house has its own private lakeside beach resort thrown in.

Outfitted with a dock, boatslip and dockside deck, an arbor-covered outdoor kitchen, hammocks (one with a mister), a playground, and a lakeside beach with arbor-covered swings, this luxury beach resort sits on a cove at the southern end of Roamingwood Lake, the largest of the Hideout’s three main lakes.

Since powerboating is allowed on Roamingwood Lake, that means you can keep a motor boat tied up at your dock along with your rowboats, sailboats, canoes and kayaks. And since this cove is a no-wake zone, you can enjoy quiet and tranquil waters whenever you hang out by the lake.

Between everything the Hideout has to offer and everything this Lake Ariel beach resort house for sale has to offer, odds are that once you pass through the Hideout’s entrance gate, you won’t need to leave until you’re ready to head back to Philly. Unless you need to restock your larder or medicine cabinet, that is.





SALE PRICE: $1,295,000

OTHER STUFF: An annual homeowners association fee of $1,850 covers maintenance and use of the Hideout’s roads and many community amenities. You may also rent this property to others on a short-term basis when you aren’t using it yourself.
