Lake Wallenpaupack Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Lake View Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
Come enjoy our beautiful 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage, proudly owned by my family since the 1960’s. Your home away from home is located on a slope under a canopy of mature hardwood trees, affording wonderful views of Lake Wallenpaupack, located only 200’ from the front door. Enjoy the fieldstone patio with your group, where you'll cook on the new Weber propane grill, enjoy the lake views while dining at the 8’ picnic table, and relax on chaise lounges during the day, and during the evening, roast marshmallows and make s'mores at the fire pit. Enjoy the views, your favorite beverage, and conversation on the covered front porch, furnished with comfortable outdoor furniture. Bring your boat, up to 24’L, and moor it in your own slip located directly across the street, in protected, no wake water. Navigate the Big Lake, 13 miles long, where you'll swim, tube, ski, and fish, or throw out the anchor and enjoy captivating scenery. Enjoy the convenience of the no- wake zone opposite the cottage, about 1.5 miles in length, great for the kayaking or canoeing enthusiast. Take a short drive to the beach, or to the outdoor recreational area, where you’ll enjoy the clean, heated, lifeguarded outdoor swimming pool and kiddie pool, play tennis, shoot some hoops, play volleyball, and horseshoes, or take a well-deserved break and watch the children as they enjoy the playground. Walk to lake or pond fishing, too!
Enjoy the splendor of the changing of the seasons, and as the golden leaves turn to brown, the serene view of the Lake as it falls into its winter slumber. Visit in the spring, where you'll enjoy the many perennials that reach for the warming sun!

Why Mark Laudenslager chose Lake Wallenpaupack
My parents bought this cottage in the mid 1960's, when I was 5 years old. I have many fond memories of our cottage and the Lake. My parents worked very hard to provide our family a vacation home to enjoy and be proud of. I always knew that it was important to keep the Lake in my life as I grew older. I fulfilled my dream of staying firmly connected to the Lake, and bought the cottage from my siblings in 2010. I am grateful for the compromise by my wife and daughter, as owning a second home comes with sacrifices. We have made many upgrades to the cottage, and I enjoy reading about the great experiences our renters have had.
What makes this cottage unique

There are also pleasant views of the lake, especially after the leaves fall. Our cottage offers a blend of rustic charm with the modern conveniences of Wifi, HDTV, AC, and free long distance. The property is enjoyed and maintained by the owner. The property owners are hands-on, and actually alternate cleanings with a cleaning woman, not a service, to assure that the property is cleaned to a level you would expect. The owner's reliability and life-long connection to this property translate into a commitment to the property that will assure satisfaction with your rental experience!
