Poconos Neighborhoods
and Poconos Communities

Poconos Patio HomeLike many regions defined by unique geographic features, the Poconos Mountains are unique in that they are also defined by vibrant neighborhoods and communities and wide spread attractions. The Poconos longevity as a vacation destination is in the diversity and vitality of its natural and man made attractions around which its neighborhoods and communities have grown along with the region's proximity to the largest markets in the USA. All of our communities, neighborhoods, villages and cities are less than 2.5 hours from the 30 or so million people living in the New York and Philadelphia markets.

From the Lakes, Rivers, Mountains and Streams used by the settlers as transportation and resources, much as evolved in the Pocono Mountains region of northeastern PA. Many communities or neighborhood are located around or near one of the natural features. There are lake communities, neighborhoods sited on mountains, and villages along our rivers or trade routes between rivers.


Each neighborhood and community has its own personality and distinct appeal, all of them demonstrate the Poconos changing face, as this historic and nature oriented areas has become a magnet for second homeowners and commuters alike.

With over 300 Communities and 2400 Square Miles and a 2.5 hour drive across, finding the right neighborhood is a daunting task.

Each community has an appeal that draws like minded home buyers. Most experienced real estate agents will start by introducing their potential buyers to communities prior to looking at homes and after, of course, reviewing with the buyer, his, her, or their criteria for purchasing a home in a Pocono neighborhood. Most buyers pick the Poconos community first then the home.

Our list does not include ALL of the neighborhoods or communities in the Poconos, but a good sampling.

What to look for in a Poconos Neighborhood or community.

  • Consider what is important to your family in a neighborhood
  • Visiting each community at different times of the day
  • Ask about services, public transportation, shopping

Many buyers think that the neighborhood in which they will live should be as important as their home. But. even if YOU like the Starbucks on the corner or the gym a mile away, it would be important to consider what a future buyer of the home you are considering might consider. While the proximity of a school bus stop, a ski area or nearness of a state park may not be important to you, these could be a deal maker toa prospective buyer when you want to sell.

  • Drive through a neighborhood or community at different times of the day. In the morning, you can see how residents get to work and students get to school. During the daytime, you'll also see how properties, including alleys, are maintained. An evening or night visit will allow you to discover rush-hour traffic density and traffic noise, street parking availability and how well streets are lit to ensure safety.
  • Walk or ride a bicycle through the neighborhood and look closer at public places like schools, playgrounds and parks.
  • Talk to local business owners. They will probably know about the area than homeowners and could give you some insight into plans for commercial development.
  • Check the opening and closing times of coffee shops, restaurants, supermarkets and drugstores. Is there convenient parking ?
  • Check out school and city council meetings and learn about issues in the community. Ask about garbage collection and water rates, watering bans, recycling centers, street cleaning and snow regulations.
  • Visit the Pocono hospital and know the proximity in case of an emergency. Are there local medical centers for non -emergency medical care ?
  • Check for the availability of public transportation. Pick up bus, train and taxi schedules.
  • Google the community to learn about any community issues.
  • Go to the local police station and ask about crime statistics and neighborhood watch groups. Most states post online the names and addresses of convicted sex offenders, who may live in the area.

The concept of"neighborhood" in the Poconos is different than that of most surrounding state or regions. Here the term neighborhood could mean anything from a development by a single developer with homogeneous homes to a subdivision of land with just a few home built over a hundred year time span by many different builder with some homes being built by the homeowners themselves.

There may be communities with clubhouses, pools, tennis facilities, or there may be small subdivisions surrounded by state parklands the no amenities other than dirt roads. Some may require you as a homeowner to pay dues for a complete amenities package including central water and sewer and some may have no dues requirements.

When considering purchasing in the Poconos, you should begin by assessing your priority of these issues and consult with a real estate broker about which neighborhoods fit your needs. This will help you find the right place for you and your family much more quickly than anything else you might do during this process.
