Lake Wallenpaupack Cottage Rental Photos and Description

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 grill, enjoy the views from the 8’ picnic table, and relax on chaise lounges during the day, and during the evening, roast marshmallows and make smores at the firepit. 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!

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. Have peace of mind during your stay knowing that the property owner is environmentally conscious, and actually pays a higher rate for electricity by subscribing to the delivery of 100% renewable wind energy to this property. Select this property with confidence as the owner enjoys a life long connection to it, translating to the fact that this property is continually well cared for and clean. Read about the positive experiences our past guests have had!

Mark Laudenslager purchased this cottage in 2010

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.

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 committment 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!

Fishing Fun

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

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 !
