We are retired educators who enjoy travel. Because we love our beautiful home so much, we like to share it with others and hate to see it idle while we are away. It would be such a waste! Our daughter lives nearby and is available for questions during your stay. We gift each visiting family with a handcrafted souvenir of their stay and welcome several families back for return visits.

While raising 5 children, we yearned for a lakeside home. When they were finally out of school and we could afford one, the children moved to other states. We searched the whole Wallenpaupack area and found this charming home and property which constantly give us joy. Late at night, we look out on the moonlit lake and still can't believe that this good fortune is really ours! Our grandchildren love the paddle boat, canoe and rowboat, and enjoy fishing from our own dock. Lawn and board games keep them busy day and night. It is comfortable for up to three couples or a total of 8 if some are children. There are two master bedrooms and a double as well as a sleeping loft. Sitting around our own firepit in the evening completes a perfect day of sun and water.
This property is completely modern while retaining its country charm. From the open plan kitchen and living area to the spectacular deck, it is the perfect setting for a family or couples who enjoy beautiful lake views, serenity and convenience to major roads, activities, restaurants and town. Whether you like to swim, fish, boat or just enjoy our views of the most beautiful part of the lake from the deck, this is the perfect vacation home.
This was our second year at this property and it is still our favorite vacation 'home'. The grassy backyard with all the lawn games is such an added PLUS. Most homes have steep walks to the lake or totally wooded lots. Our teenagers love the pool table for rainy times during our stay and we all enjoy the different board games that are provided for night time entertainment. The paddleboat and canoe are fun times and being in a cove is a sheltered haven for boat owners and swimmers. Two family friendly restaurants are near by; both perfect for sitting outside and enjoying sunset cocktails.
After over 50 years of vacationing all over the lake, this is our favorite spot!!
