One & Two Bedroom Bethlehem PA Apartments | Woodmont Mews

Woodmont Mews are the newest apartment complex in Bethlehem. Roughly 2.5 miles to St Lukes.

I'm not sure what they are renting for nowadays, but the townhouses in Center Valley are about a 15 minute drive to St. Luke's Bethlehem. If a ~15 to 20 minute drive isn't bad for you, see if there is anything around 378 & 22 (although 22 gets backed up in the mornings, but 378 isn't bad).

Thank you Pacomartin and blazerj !
Woodmont mews seems good , we would definitely keep that in our list.
I saw listing of 2 townhomes in Oak St Freemansburg... any idea how is that place ?
@blazerj ~ 15 minutes drive is fine .. I will see trulia/zillow if there is any listing in Center Valley.

I live in Freemansburg and love it. The townhouses on Oak are located behind the police/fire dept (you will hear the siren at the firehouse). I haven't heard any bad about the townhouses. Friendly, safe community. 10-15 minutes to St Lukes.

I would recommend Bethlehem Fields Apartments on Cherry Ln which is right off I78 on South 412 and is only 10-12 minute drive down to Ostrum st without traffic. It can get clogged at times on the intersection but this area of Hellertown/Bethlehem side is really peaceful, very safe and family friendly. You wouldn't worry about property damage or theft being this apartment.

Rent is less then 1700 for a two bedroom unit and for 1700 i believe you can opt for one of their townhomes. Very well kept complex, great manager and staff running the place. Safe to walk your little one any time of day. I always see parents walking their kids on strollers. IT's a walkable neighborhood where you see couples walking together, people jogging, walking their dogs.

There are nearby playgrounds and walkable main st via Hellertown which is just across the street of the apartment complex! This area is so close to the saucon rail trail, hellertown library that has a very active 1-3 years old story-time activities all week. Really great community in this area.

Avoid: Spring Garden Townhomes and other apartments in this area where it's at (18017). Avoid renting down southside, fountain hill.

Bethlehem Fields apartments are technically on a bethlehem zipcode and school district but you'll end up enjoying the community of Hellertown which give it that small town feel.

Closeby the apartment - via Hellertown would be Giant, CVS, RITEAID, Small businesses along main st, Dolce Patisserie (deisgner chocolates), thrift store, 7 eleven, statefarm, and more.

I am suggesting this apartment because I've lived here for 4 years (2007) and moved out and came back 3 years later and rented with them going 3 years now. I came back to this apartment because it was just the best in terms of management, location, and price.

I can't recommend any particular apartments or townhomes, but consider looking in Bethlehem Township. It's to the east of Bethlehem. I've driven in that area and it looks really nice--very suburban, almost rural, and it feels safe.
