Bear Market Retreat

Availability Contact Us Attractions Location More PA Vacation Rentals

The NEWLY RENOVATED A-frame cabin faces a 1/2 acre pond, making a beautiful spot to enjoy a peaceful cup of coffee. If you're adventurous, there's a canoe to paddle around in or fish from. In winter, the really ambitious have been known to stage ice hockey games on the pond. The 22-acre property also includes acres of woodland, wilderness, and pasture. Deer, bear, turkey and small game have been seen on the property, (City dwellers, no worries! The wildlife is more afraid of you than you are of it!) Check Availability.

The retreat is located just 10 minutes from the Forksville Fairgrounds, World's End State Park, and acres of state game land. Ricketts Glen State Park, the resort village of Eagles Mere, and Montoursville are all just 1/2 hour away. You'll find spectacular scenery, and opportunities for hiking, fishing, swimming, white water rafting, boating, kayaking, snowmobiling, and cross country skiing. There are plenty of safe trails to hike all year 'round, even in hunting season. (If that's a concern, see: http://www.outdoors.org/recreation/hiking/hiking-hunting-season.cfm).

RENOVATIONS: We opened up the downstairs space, added new cabinets, lots of counter space (granite), and hardwood floors throughout. The propane stove/fireplace provides ambiance and heat. The TV is equipped with Direct TV and a DVD/VCR. The farmhouse table seats 8. Furniture updated. JUST ADDED: WIFI internet service, unlimited calling.

The A-frame sleeps 8. On the main floor there is a private bedroom with a double bed. In the upstairs loft, there is one double bed and 4 singles. The large bathroom on the main floor has a walk-in shower, and new, large vanity. There is an old mini log cabin on the property you can visit, not suitable for lodging.

Bring your own sheets, towels, dish towels and paper products. You can clean for the next guests (supplies provided), OR leave cash in the cabin upon departure for cleaning service. No smoking and no pets, please.
