Come renew yourself at this Beautiful Log Home getaway. Your mornings may begin with one of the four porches beckoning you to relax outside in the cool morning air. You can sit and stretch out on the glider bench with a cup of coffee and listen to the sounds of nature while reading your favorite book. Later on, take a walk on the private marked hiking trail back to a roaring woodland creek and waterfall. Enjoy watching the constant stream of visitors at the bird feeders. Fill the wildlife feed tub with some deer chow from the local Agway and gaze at the nocturnal parade of deer and other animals through the wall of windows facing the woodland. After a day of activities slip into the hot tub for some deep relaxation. In the winter you can fire up the wood stove and enjoy its cozy ambience while perhaps watching the snow fall thru the wall of windows. This home is beautifully decorated with rustic and log furniture displaying wildlife and woodland themes.

'I just wanted to express our sincere thanks to you and your snow plow man for being so helpful and coming to our rescue today, we eventually made it home safely! Additionally thank you for renting out your beautiful cabin, we had a lovely time and a magical Christmas. It was the most perfect place to relax over the holidays'.
'Happy New Year! I just wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed our stay in your beautiful home! We hope to rent again from you in the future. All my best'
We had an incredible time this weekend. It couldn't have been better. We had a great time relaxing in the living room and cooking dinners together. Also, the hot tub was a fantastic way to decompress after a day of skiing at Camelback. Thank you for everything.
PS. Is it too early to reserve the same weekend next year ?

Live near Doylestown PA, the began searching for the right property to build a vacation home in 2000, and finally had the complete dream fulfilled, taking occupancy the day after Thanksgiving in 2004.
As children, our families went on summer vacations to mountain lake areas such as Pennsylvania's Wallenpaupack, New Yorks Lake George and New Hampshire's Lake Winnipesaukee. We fondly remember camping trips to Tobyhanna and Promised land State Parks, and visiting friends who owned a house on Lake Wallenpaupack. We built our dream vacation home after a two year search for an ideal parcel of land. This one had all of the elements we were looking for; secluded and scenic, huntable woodland with a creek, and close to a large body of water that offered recreation. Not until after we moved in did it become apparent just how perfect our choice was as we kept discovering all that the surrounding small towns had to offer and the area within 30 minutes travel. We began implementing a wildlife habitat improvement program on the property in 2009 and clear cut two 1 acre deer crop fields and a 3 acre sanctuary. We are thinking about building a pond below the house just into the woods and are planning to begin a natural landscape plan for the open area surrounding the house sometime this year.
This house (home) is used frequently by its owners and therefore is furnished and maintained at a higher standard than a 'rental only' property. The size of the property is a feature almost completely unique that most vacation rental homes simply don't have. The time, effort, and expense put forth in decorating the interior were an endeavor of love and enthusiasm and we think our home reflects that. It is a wonderfully relaxing and quiet setting. You can feel so comfortable and secluded at the cabin yet you are only a short distance from so many things like shopping, dining and many forms of entertainment and of course Lake Wallenpaupack. There are several public boat accesses and beaches around the 15 mile long lake. Best of all when at our cabin, you don't have to be near the sounds and bustle of the big lake 24/7, only when you want to be.
