Overview

Honesdale Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, spacious open area

If you are looking for an Autumn or Winter 'get-away'? Look no more. Book two nights and get on night FREE. (except for Dec. 24 to Jan 4)

Pack your clothes, personal items, and food. We provide most everything else. A detailed list may be requested. We are only 3 hours from NYC and Philadelphia. Lehigh Valley is only 2 hours away.

You have found the only vacation rental on beautiful Duck Harbor Pond. At 2 miles long and a half mile wide, it is not a 'pond' but a private glacial lake, perfect for any water sport.

Enjoy the calmness of the lake in the morning, afternoon activities, and evening sunsets from the rocking chairs on the covered porch. Our resident Blue Herons and Bald Eagles can be seen frequently.

Family fun and enjoyment was the focus of our design. We considered families with special needs by including a handicap ramp and 36 inch doorways on the main floor.

Guests with allergies will do well in this house since there are all wood floors with no carpeting, no pets, and no smoking.

We are in a rural area with little or no cell phone service, so we provide WiFi and free long distance calling from our land line.

Although we focus on families, this is ideal for couples or any group of 6 or less.

Suitability:
  • children welcome

About Elaine Wells

Honest and hard working are words we have heard to describe us. We have shared many adventures in the 40 years we have been married. Although we are both technically 'retired', we are always working on a project. In the fall of 2011, we purchased a run down cottage on Duck Harbor Pond. Over the winter we tore it down and in the spring of 2012 we started building this new log cabin. The design and most of the labor was done by us. We hope you will appreciate our pride in workmanship and love every minute you spend in our cabin.

Elaine Wells purchased this cabin in 2011

Why Elaine Wells chose Honesdale

We are blessed to be permanent residents in our own log cabin at Duck Harbor Pond. Sharing our piece of 'Paradise' with others in this new this cabin has been a great pleasure.

What makes this cabin unique

ECO-Friendly and respect for nature and our environment. The logs and all wood are locally grown and processed. From the lights and windows to the appliances and granite, our choices reflect energy efficiency and organic materials.

Labor Day Couples Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This log cabin was very new and VERY CLEAN. We were all shocked how clean and well maintained the place was. We had a blast and the place is great for 6 people (2.5 bath is a nice touch). We had problems with the gas grill but the owners (who live down the lake, but never bothered us, only helped!) ended up just driving over their own personal grill so we could still enjoy our weekend. Very little cell phone reception was not a problem because of their house phone and wifi. Neighbors although close by, were very nice and did not bother us at all. I would highly recommend this place to a small group or family who want to get away for the weekend or even the week. We all wish we had more time!

Wonderful Lake House

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at this lovely log cabin. The cabin is new, clean and well maintained. The owners (who live nearby if you need help with anything, but will respect your privacy), thoughtfully designed the cabin to be convenient for visitors. Helpful labels provide instructions for the switches and operation of the cabin. The owners stock firewood, soap, kitchen utensils, etc., so you can leave a lot of the basic supplies at home. There is a large living room/diving room area, with a great view of the lake. We spent a lot of time on the porch, enjoying the comfortable chairs and the view of the lake. We also really enjoyed the picnic table and fire pit. Duck Harbor pond is a wonderful place for a relaxing lake weekend. The lake is well stocked for fishing. The neighbors are quiet and friendly (and generously offered to take us out fishing for a few hours), and the lake is beautiful. We will definitely be back.

Great Family Get Away

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time @ this beautiful cabin. Elain & Jim are great hosts and have this place set up with all you would need. My wife and I were able to spend great quality family time together with our two sons (ages 17 & 20). No cell service so we were not interrupted allowing us just time together. There is wifi and a house phone so we could stay connected if needed. Perfect way to spend time with each other before back to school.

Fishing is fun off the dock. There is no boat or boat rentals, so if you have your own boat bring it. We did catch a bunch if fish from the dock (bluegill, crappie, small mouth bass, perch and cat fish). Caught something almost every cast. Lake is very pretty.

Thanks for the great time. Would recommend to anyone that this is a great place to stay.

Idyllic Setting

  • 5 of 5
The log cabin was very comfortable, clean and well stocked with basic supplies. (Maybe one more frying pan to cook bacon and eggs at the same time.)
The lake was lovely, we enjoyed fishing off the pier. Motorized boats are allowed, we were a little concerned with kayaking, but it worked out fine.
Elaine is very friendly and helpful. The neighbors were very friendly.
I was surprised by how close the neighbors were (did not notice this from the pic) but it turned out not be a problem. It was a quiet weekend.
We had a tasty meal at a French Patisserie in Honnesdale. An unexpected treat.
We would love to return and wish the drive was a little shorter (2.5) hrs

Owner's Response: Thank you. I do have two fry pans in the kitchen, but one of them is cast iron. I added another non-stick fry pan to make it easier for cooking. Our lake is peaceful and quiet most of the time. All the neighboring cabins and cottages are used only by family and friends, so there is a great sense of community.

Just Exactly Perfect

  • 5 of 5
My brother and I just returned from our 2nd fishing vacation at this beautiful cabin on a beautiful lake. There is no doubt we will return. Although we brought a boat and fished the entire lake, you won’t need a boat to catch fish there. The fishing was best right off the dock where we caught bass, pickerel, crappie, perch, sunfish, bluegill and catfish all on minnows and worms. For reasons unknown to me, the fish at Duck Harbor are more aggressive than any other lake I have fished. A lot of places are called “fisherman’s paradise”, but this place truly is.

From the moment I submitted my rental request, everything was handled professionally and promptly! This house is extremely well maintained and clean. The wood throughout is gorgeous and there are a lot of nice upgrades in the bathrooms/kitchen. It was a perfect place for a relaxing girls getaway out of the city--we won't look for another place when we return. This was ideal.
