Outside the Philadelphia Area

Pennsylvania’s natural beauty is showcased in its northeast Poconos region and in other areas far north and to the west of the Lehigh Valley. These are areas with a long history as a second-home market for residents of New York City and Philadelphia, though most of the select properties we list in these areas could be very comfortable full-time or vacation residences.
