Hemlock Farms, PA


Hawley, Pike County,
Pennsylvania

It’s a 4,500-acre (18 km2) gated community in Lords Valley, located south of Interstate 84, with a Hemlock Lake. Population is 3,271 (2010 census) in about 3,000 homes (only 1k are occupied on a permanent basis). The house we’re in is on the Elm Lake, which is a reservoir, is very tranquil. We’re on the west side, although can’t see the sunset, the blue sky and clouds reflect in the lake are extremely beautiful. I like to get up early to catch the sunrise with the paddle boat and paddle board – the lake allows electrical boats (no gas). I find this boat is very functional, and see many homes have them parked by their decks.

Cheers to a fabulous weekend.

 

The lakeside house. The big stones add charm and characters.

   

The feast from tomahawk steak to self caught fish, ribs, lobsters, grilled shrimps, chicken wings, … a little too much tho -:).

See the pretty dragonfly on my arm?

      


The tomahawk steak which is the long-bone Rib Steak, is awesome and delicious. It reminds me of Fred in the Flintstones, ha ha ha

What do you think?

Sunrise @ Hemlock Farms

The pretty sunrise on the Elm Lake is in full view from the living room and the deck. I like to take the paddle boat out to chase it.

The lake and homes are all adorned with big stones, which adds charm and character.

Will return.

High ceiling (love it), delicious food, good service, decent bathroom with a maid (better without! I’d rather have mouthwash than a maid). I’d rate this one higher than Kyma – high ceiling and wood get me.

It’s our friends’ 60th birthday – our children grew up together since they were 3, and now one of the kids is engaged – congratulations!!!

Valet parking.

Chinese are coming

This quiet neighborhood shopping center has a new store coming soon. And it has English and Chinese … If the ad is accurate, the store is expanding.

    

This Prada pebble bag costs $1,791. It sells a larger version which is a little under $2k.

Counting in Central Park

A fake monk is counting his spoil openly in the park. My god …

Crazy rich Asians

<- DIY sunset -:). Will return.

Great sunset view, good service and delicious food. We didn’t get to see the sunset (faked one myself ha ha ha) nor sit on the roof top but I got to kayak & a visit from a cute dog.
