Blink your eyes and you have missed it. Literally you have to leave the main routes to go there so the only traffic is the summer occupants. Nice to see another way of life.

Eagles Mere was developed during an economic, resource based boom in the nearby communities-- in the late 19th Century!! The lake shore has been protected due to a prohibition against tree cutting near the shore. The community and its large summer homes has been listed...More

Only 120 people in winter but 3000 in summer. Many summer homes in this very private resort area around a 114 acre private lake. Only one road passes through the hamlet (PA 42) and don't expect to get gas or find a large store of...More
