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 which overlooks the south end of Lake Wallenpaupack, during the splendor of the season! A manageable 100 mile, 2 hour trek from NYC, less than 2 1/2 hours from Philly.

Winter recreational opportunities abound! The lake freezes hard, followed by snowfall, where you may then enjoy cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and sledding, or drive about 30 minutes to either Camelback or Montage Ski Resorts for downhill skiing and snow tubing, or to Mt. Airy Casino.

Don't feel like venturing out? Enjoy our warm, clean cottage, highlighted by a woodburning stone fireplace with generous hardwood provided, and serene lake views. Want to cook a hot meal for your group? No worries! Our cottage is equipped with ample pots pans, dishes, and small appliances, so you won't skip a beat. You may also consider grilling your main course on the convenient Weber propane grill!

Between the spring and fall seasons, enjoy the cottage side patio with your group, where you'll cook on the 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!

You will appreciate the rustic charm of our cottage, highlighted by a natural fieldstone woodburning fireplace, and also the modern conveniences that you are accustomed to at home: Air conditioning, WIFI, 32” Sony Bravia HDTV with expanded HD channels, HD DVR, DVD.

Mark Laudenslager purchased this cottage in 2010

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

The location of the cottage is wonderful. There is convenience to the lake with the added benefit of accessibility to the swimming pool, tennis courts, and playground. 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! Owner actually pays a higher electric rate and subscribes to a 100% renewable electric service provider. Electric supply to this property compliments of 100% wind energy!

Fun family weekend

  • 5 of 5
We spent Labor Day weekend in the house and had a wonderful time. The cabin is as advertised, although I didn't realize there wasn't a dishwasher until we got there. However, the fire pit more than made up for it! Mark was a pleasure to deal with, responsive, honest generous. The community facilities were a bonus.

Great spot for our family... Wish we were still there!

  • 5 of 5
Our family just returned from a relaxing week at this cabin. The amenities are as advertised, and definitely made for a comfortable stay. The iffy cell reception was a challenge, but there is a benefit to being a little out of touch for a week. We borrowed boats, and carried them to the lake each time... Next time we would rent the boat slip instead. Making arrangements with the owner was very pleasant from start to finish. We heartily recommend this place!

Extended Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our stay at this home. There was plenty of room for the 6 adults and 1 toddler in our group. We really enjoyed the setting and the neighborhood. It was great to be outside but also in a shaded area where it didn't get too hot. We used the pool and playground almost every night. While we were there, we checked out the zoo and went on the boat tour and had a lot of fun during those activities.

Fishing Fun

  • 5 of 5
When my wife and our 2 adult sons were looking to rent a place on the lake with a boat dock for a few days of fishing, we crossed our fingers and reached out to Mark after looking at several places on the web sites. We couldn't have been more lucky with the choice we made. When we arrived at the cabin, we found it to be extremely clean and comfortable. Everything in the description of the amenities was spot on. It was great to have our boat docked right outside and ready for use. Would highly recommend this cabin to anyone who is seeking to spend time on the lake with family or loved ones. (My only fear is that if too many people find out about this, we might have a hard time booking for next year).

One Week at the Lake

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at Lake Wallenpaupack . Great location to all of facilities at the Indian Rock Community. Having access to a beach, pool and playground available with the rental was great for our grandson , as well as the dock for boating on the Lake. Mark was very easy to deal with and gave us ample information to enjoy the home. The home was clean and the kitchen had all we needed to prepare meals . Having a washer and dryer on the second floor was very convenient. There was plenty of seasoned wood and kindling to enjoy a campfire each night . We would certainly come again to this home !
