About Janet

Our family has been enjoying varrious areas of the Poconos for over 30 years.

True water enthusiasts, we had rented properties in search of the perfect property for our family to enjoy year round and we have found it in this property we call Treetops.

We also enjoy snow skiing and love the fact that there are a number of great mountains locally for winter time fun including ice skateing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and ice sailing right on the lake.

This property allows us to enjoy summer and winter activities and we are happy to share with those that will enjoy and respect a wonderful family get away.

Janet purchased this house in 2012

Why Janet chose Lake Wallenpaupack

Situated on one of the largest lake in Pennsylvania, this property has the feel and charm of a lake house cabin with the ample space and conviences of your home.

This is a private community of 135 homes with only 6 homes available for rental. The neighborhood feel and serenity provides the ideal place to get away and recharge.

You will be hard pressed to find more beautiful views of this part of Pennsylvania with the adventure and fun of being on a lake and near to so many activities year round.

Summer boating, winter skiing, fall golfing, and spring hiking/biking make for a lot of family fun. Some like snowmobiling on the lake in the winter. If you don't own a boat, you can rent one from the local marina situatted on the lake. For kids, you might consider having them take wakeboarding or skiing lessons.

What makes this house unique

The front of the house is modest and quaint and yet as you enter the front door, the spacious layout and breadthtaking views out each of the bed rooms provide an ambience of relaxation with access to complete fun. Two of the rooms have sliding glass doors and access to the outside deck overlooking the lake.

The home is shaded during spring, summer, and fall seasons with a 'treefort' collection of beautiful trees which provides for some of the most beautiful views in the fall as the leaves change.

The firepit provides for a wonderful family experience for those who enjoy roasting marshmellows or having a 'fire side chat'.

Put your boat or canoe in at our private dock for short a canoe ride away to a small island which has charcoal grills perfect for an afternoon adventure and cookout. Fishing is bountiful and the lake holds many variety of fish.

Improvements in 2014: Twin Waverunner floating docks (waverunner not included) allows for easy parking for two waverunners/canoe/kyack.

New Master bedroom windows and new sliding glass doors for all rooms and gameroom allow for a beautiful look at the lake.

Owner's Response: It is amazing with two large TVs how little our teenagers watch TV. Rather they enjoy the lake activities, going golfing nearby (Skytop is a 20 minute drive) and the campfires with the family....they actually really to talk around the campfire with the family. There are a number of families with teenagers who enjoy waterskiing. The local marina hosts wake board and waterskiing lessons on advanced boat tricks. With the new pair of waverunner docks just installed, bringing up your waverunners is easy and flexible. Thank you for taking great care of our property and we look forward to seeing you up at the lake.

Comfortable, cozy home

  • 4 of 5
Great home with great views! We had a nice relaxing weekend. The home was definitely more spacious then it appeared from the house. Also, very nice to sit around the fire at night and make s'mores. Would definitely reccomend to others.

Owner's Response: The fall is the most romantic time at Wallenpaupack. The color of the leaves is as stunning as you will find just about anywhere. The cool sweater nights by the fire and the warmth of the sun makes it ideal for a weekend getaway in October and November. The fully stocked kitchen makes for fun nights for having a few friends help cook a glorious meal and then sit out on the back deck or by the fire. The stars are amazing at night as you look into the sky to see deep into the galaxy. A short trip into town will find many stores with a variety unique antiques and collectibles. Local restaraunts make cooking the in kitchen optional. Complete relaxation is what you will find here.

Thank you for taking great care of our property and we look forward to having you back.

Great place to stay in the Poconos

  • 5 of 5
This was an ideal location for us to stay for our ski trip to the Poconos. Great proximity to all the mountains. You can't beat the view here during the winter. The house is spacious and accommodating with a fun downstairs game room. We would definitely rent again.

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5
This is the place to stay on Lake Wallenpaupack. I have got it on my list to come back again for sure. I am from Australia and Lake Wallenpaupack is not on any tourist destination list but it should be! I just had the best 2 weeks of my life at this property. It felt just like home and had everything I needed as well as an amazing view of the lake from the balcony.

The beds were comfy and we had 10 people with us at one point. The house still felt spacious and it was easy to cook communal dinners, I especially loved the BBQ. Also hot tip: Don't forget S'more supplies for the camp fire after dinner of course. It was so easy to relax and unwind.

For those of you interested in getting closer to nature there is a heated outdoor shower which was a lovely touch.

We had access to a boat and I was able to learn to water ski which was so much fun.So BYO boat If you don't have a boat it is still a beautiful place to swim and/or lounge on the dock, I would also consider bringing a floatation device as it was so nice just floating on the lake, we did tie it to the dock as to not float away.

I thought I would do more activities of the surrounding area but I found myself not wanting to leave the Lake House unless I had too. What a perfect summer, thanks Janet and Stewart for being so helpful and kind.

Owner's Response: Floating on the lake and waving at the boaters going by is a lot of fun on a hot summer day. One of the reasons we put a cooler right on the doc is so that you don't have far to go to get your favorite resfreshment.

Glad you had a great time and thanks for taking the long journey from Australia. I think you get the record for traveling the furthest!

Both tranquil and action packed setting!

  • 5 of 5
This is a very nice lakefront home with lots of space to spread out or to gather with your friends and family for some fun. There is plenty to do for everyone! Swim, boat, kayak, tube - this lakefront property has the perfect set up for whatever water toys you bring along! Just want to relax and take in the tranquility? You can do that too while grilling on the lake front deck or gathered around the fire pit making Smores! We were only there for a weekend, but even after spending the majority of the summer at the beach, my 14 year old son said "it was the best weekend of the summer"! Thanks for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: Teenagers really enjoy all the water sports action and find they can make new friends. The local marina has a wake boarding club which is a great opportunity to learn, advance, and enjoy the sport while getting to know other families on the lake.

Thank you for your review and please come back to the lake.
