About Janet Hollingshead

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 Hollingshead purchased this house in 2012

Why Janet Hollingshead 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.

Awesome Home!

  • 4 of 5

The lake house was great! it was very comfortable and it had all the necessary amenities.. The Kids loved the attic room and the basement. They played video games and watch movies. It was a great snow tubing and ski weekend at camelback for my son 10th birthday. I would recommend and stay there again. The owner was very helpful.

NYE getaway

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was very comfortable with all the amenities necessary to enjoy an extended stay in the Poconos. The house was able to accommodate a large group and gave plenty of room to relax and enjoy the company of family and friends. Janet is a kind and gracious host who was always willing to help make our stay enjoyable. The view of the lake was especially beautiful while sitting next to a warm fire!

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.
