“Sleep Indoors, Play Outdoors”
Reviewed 3 September 2010

Beach Lake is a quiet village with a convenience store, a diner, a couple of restaurants, and a small water park. All are a short walk from Pine Grove Cottages. The Delaware River, Lake Wallenpaupack, and many scenic and historic sites are nearby.

These cottages are so small and basic that I would call them cabins. They are spotlessly clean and lovingly maintained and adorably cute. The kitchen is tiny. There’s no room for a microwave, but ours was otherwise very well-equipped, although the water tastes like iron. The two bedrooms and the living room are just large enough for the necessary furniture. The bathroom has a shower but no tub.
 
Four motel-style units have bathtubs and better-tasting water, but they don’t have as much personality.
 
Each rental unit has its own charcoal grill and picnic table, as well as a small front porch. We made good use of this outdoor space, using the indoors for sleeping, cooking, and getting under a roof and into air conditioning when the weather was wet or hot.

This place has the best little sand beach in the Poconos. There’s a large roped swimming area on the lake, and there’s also a large pool. A basket of sand toys for toddlers makes family time on the beach easy, as does the mix of sun and shade at the water’s edge and on the adjacent lawn. Benches, tables and chairs provide seating for reading, using the owners' wi-fi or just looking at the beautiful view.
 
Also on the lakefront, you’ll find a good supply of kayaks, rowboats and paddleboats. Fishing from the dock is permitted, or you can take your tackle out in a boat. Since the lake is about a mile long and half a mile wide, there’s plenty of room to explore.
 
There’s also a bocce court, a covered pavilion with picnic tables, ping pong and air hockey, and a firepit. The rental fee includes use of all facilities, including the boats. Unlike some places I’ve visited, there are no long lists of rules—guests are asked to obey state boating and fishing regulations, and to participate in the recycling program, but courtesy and common sense provide most of the guidance.
 
Coin-operated washers and dryers are hidden from locals in an outbuilding; ask about them. Ask for anything you need, or for information about the area. The owners are very friendly and helpful, without being intrusive. So are other guests, many of whom have been returning for years. I will, too.
