Ok, I may be a tad late to the party here, but did you see the August issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine? Page 16 of the 'Better By Design' section of the magazine has Arrowhead Lake/Pocono Mountains, Pennsylvania, listed as one of 5 Up and Coming vacation home hot spots. Schweet!!
Arrowhead was listed, along with Gatlinburg, TN, Cody, WY, and others, as a still-affordable, low profile market. This is as opposed to the 'Biggies' like Cape Cod, Lake Tahoe and Chincoteague Island, which were listed as Tried and True and where I don't even want to try to guess what you'd pay for a vacation home. (Kind of like buying a place at the Jersey Shore where prices can seem intimidating. Come to the Poconos, we are within reach, geographically AND financially!)
So, you no longer have to take my word for it. Arrowhead is the place to be. BH & G says so!
