Bernhart Reservoir real estate is regarded as a beautiful, but lesser known, market in Pennsylvania for lake homes and lake lots.
Bernhart Reservoir is a 14-acre lake located in Berks County, Pennsylvania outside the city of Reading, Pennsylvania. The city of Philadelphia is just under 80 minutes south.
The closest major airport is Lehigh Valley International Airport and is 53 minutes away. Urgent care can be provided at Penn State Health St. Joseph Medical Center, 11 minutes away.
Groceries and snacks can be found five minutes away at Weis Markets. There are great restaurants around Bernhart Reservoir, like Norte Sur Mexican Restaurant, Haiku Hibachi & Sushi, Thai Cuisine, and Cafe Sweet Street.
At 14 acres, this lake offers its residents privacy and great fishing. Anglers can expect to find largemouth bass, yellow bullhead, yellow perch, rainbow trout, and flathead catfish.
Avid kayakers should head to the nearby town of Pottsville to Take It Outdoors Canoe & Kayak Rentals. Not only can you rent craft here, but they will take you on guided tours of the Schuylkill River.
Outdoorsmen and women should make the trek to 600-acre Nolde Forest. With 10 miles of moderate hiking trails, Nolde Forest is an ideal spot for families looking to get outside.
Reading is a beautiful, industrious town that Bernhart Reservoir residents are very close to, less than twenty minutes.
Check out the Reading Pagoda, the city's longtime symbol. In 1908, plans were made for this replication of a Japanese pagoda temple to be a luxury hotel. When the plans were abandoned, the pagoda and land were donated to the city. Built atop the southern end of Mount Penn, it now serves as a popular travel destination to view the city.
