As a resident of the area, let me just say this... if you are an outdoorsman and love the convenience of the river, the woods and hiking trails for your outdoor activities, then YES! Bushkill is great place to live. However, if you want to be closer to town, stores and conveniences, then NO it is not the place for you. When my husband and I bought up here, we didn't mind the corner market not being close by, we didn't mind that we had to drive into town to do our shopping and we still don't. Just ask yourself if "country-living" is what you want. Peace and quiet, wildlife meandering through your yard, "night sounds" and just a peaceful living. If it's not, then search the areas in and around Stroudburg within city limits. Country living is not for the faint of heart so do your research thoroughly.
