I have lived here since 1988 and it's a wonderful place. We have 6 large lakes, several smaller ponds, boating, fishing, swimming, tennis, basketball, indoor and outdoor pools, full service restaurant and bar, and clubhouse. Not to mention the wildlife that is present and abundant. Our dues are low and even include use of our own garbage compactor, what more could you want in a country community.

We are close to golf courses, great dining, theater, shopping, etc. We are a fairly large community of around 1500 homes I believe, so is there some crime...sure, but no more than any other community. Most of us know all our neighbors and there are many community programs and get together's for all to enjoy.

Don't listen to the rumor mongers.

DID YOU ASK WHY THEY MADE SUCH A STATEMENT AND WHERE THEY RECEIVED THEIR INFORMATION?

I SUGGEST YOU DO YOUIR OWN RESEARCH. YOU COULD BE MISSING ON A GREAT OPPORTUNITY. COMPARE THEIR AMENITY PACKAGE AND THEIR FEES!

Well, I just spoke to a realtor yesterday who I was put in
touch with by a realtor friend down here. I told him
about what I read about Pocono Country Place and the surrounding
areas and also about a shooting in Emerald Lakes I read about
a few weeks ago. He confirmed my apprehension about buying in the area
and actually told me he would hate to sell me a house that I wouldn't be able
to sell in the future if I had to or wanted to upgrade.

WOW! Thats pretty unprofessional of a realtor to make such a statement. You should actually start some research of yoru won on teh nightborhood, and more importantly, on the realtor....seems interesting.
