This house is in the Hideout, a 4 star gated community. They offer activities for adults, toddlers, and teens. During the summer they have swimming and tennis lessons, day camps, and sports camps available.

These listed weekend or weekly prices are for 8 PEOPLE, including infants. An additional charge can be paid to have up to 10 people during the weekly summer rentals.

Therefore the MAXIMUM number of people who can be in the house or on the premises during a rental period is 8, unless it's summer, then 10 people maximum are allowed on the premises.

The house has AIR CONDITIONING IN EVERY ROOM, (including the game room), and has 2 wood burning FIREPLACES.

Check-in is at 3:PM, and CHECK-OUT is at 11:AM.

The community has 2 beaches, one swimming pool for adults, one for children, fishing, skiing on the premises, etc. Keep in mind that SWIMMING IS AT YOUR OWN RISK, whether in the lake, or in the pools. Spending time in our HOT TUB is also at your own risk. (Swimming pools are available for use from Memorial day through Labor day.)

You can RENT A BOAT about a minute away from the main pool.

The house offers FREE local and LONG DISTANCE calls throughout the States, and WIRELESS INTERNET access, (bring your laptop).

Special Property Features:

1. GAME ROOM. A 23 x 23 foot garage turned into a game room. It's carpeted, heated, has ceiling fans, TV, cable, DVD player, full size PING PONG and POOL tables, HOCKEY table, plus bowling and other children games. The game room also has a sofa, at least 10 chairs, and tables. This game room is detached from the house, permitting all night playing without disturbing anyone in the house. - The game room has a 10.5 cu. ft. refrigerator.

2. PRIVATE BEACH. There is a private sandy beach on the property with its own DOCK, a FIRE PIT, and an adult 2-3 sitter WOODEN SWING. Swimming is allowed in the lake, as well as fishing, ( however, keep in mind that swimming in the lake, or pools is at your own risk. By the way, there is no diving). A pole light on the beach permits its use at night. (A permit is required by the Hideout for fishing). Please do not leave children alone on the dock, on the beaches, or the hot tub. Even if they are with you, ensure that children, or anyone who does not know how to swim, has a life vest on. This floating dock shakes, (due to the motion of the water). The dock extends 16 feet into the water.

HOUSE LAYOUT: Top level has 2 bedrooms with A/C, queen bed in one room, & a bunk bed with full size bed at the bottom. A bathroom is in the center of these 2 rooms.

Main floor has a master bedroom with a king size bed and A/C, a bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living room with A/C, and one wood burning fire place. An additional dining room with large windows facing the lake, allows full view of the lake, and also allows 10 people to eat together.

Third level has a 4th bedroom with a queen size bed, A/C, TV, and a DVD player. In addition, the third level (downstairs) has a family room with a bunk futon bed, with a full size bed at the bottom. That double deck futon sleeps 3. Next to that futon is a twin day bed. This family room/5th bedroom also has a bar, TV, DVD player, a bathroom, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

As one exits the family room through the sliding glass doors, there is a sun room turned into a 6th bedroom with a bunk futon bed. The bottom - has a double bed mattress. This 6th bedroom has a TV, DVD player, and A/C. That room has 3 large uncovered windows that face the lake.

We provide pillows and blankets, please bring your own sheets, towels and pillow cases.

The HOT TUB is on the third/basement level, inside a 2 sided screened room. No soap of any type is to be in the hot tub. Someone at least 25 years old needs to be in the hot tub room if someone under 18 is using the hot tub. (This is to offer assistance if necessary.)

LAKE WALLENPAUPACK is about 10 minutes from the house, for water activities and waterfront restaurants. For skiing, SNOW and ELK mountain are about 25 minutes away, CAMELBACK mountain is about 40-45 minutes away.


Keep in mind that besides our rental fee, the Hideout charges a registration fee of $100 for up to 3 nights. (We do not charge you the $125 for 4 to 7 nights' rental that they charge. We charge $100 for all length of stays.)

We charge you $150 for cleaning. ( Cleaning crews have to clean 3 levels, the game room, the beach, and empty out and clean the hot tub.)

There is a $265 SECURITY DEPOSIT required, IN ADDITION TO the required $79 RENTER'S INSURANCE, that's offered by HOMEAWAY/VRBO. The reason for the security deposit is because the renter's insurance will not pay for every charge you cause. For example, if anyone in your party gets a speeding ticket at the Hideout, the renter's insurance will not pay for it. (Inside the Hideout, this gated community, the speed limit is 15 to 25 mph.) Therefore, if someone in your party gets a speeding ticket, or any other ticket, at the Hideout, your security deposit will be used to cover that ticket. The security deposit will also be used to cover anything else the renter's insurance will not pay for.

The Hideout charges a late fee of $40 if given less than 2 working days to process your registration paperwork.

Pennsylvania charges a 6% state sales tax for short term rentals, meaning rentals less than 30 days, and a 3% rental tax for Wayne County.

Renters cannot be substituted, and take the place of another in the middle of a rental. Renters can leave anytime, but others cannot come in to take their place.

We request a list of the full name of everyone staying at the house, including infants. Copy of a picture ID of the main renter is required.

KEEP IN MIND THAT PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE ESPECIALLY AROUND HOLIDAYS. Again, you may have up to 10 people maximum in your group, during the weekly summer rentals, however, it will cost $40 extra for each of those additional 2 people per night, including infants.

MAXIMUM 4 CARS are allowed for 8 renters during any rental period. During the weekly summer rentals, if you have 9 or 10 people in your group, then a maximum of 5 cars is allowed.

A MINIMUM 3 NIGHTS rental is required ON HOLIDAYS. Year round at least 2 nights' rental is required. Summer weekly rentals start on .June 2, 2017.

NEW YEARS EVE requires 3 nights' rental. Any of the 3 nights including New Year's Eve is at $600.00 per night, for a total of $1800 for those 3 nights.

Summer WEEKLY RENTALS refer to arrival Friday, to departure the following Friday.

RENTERS - Main renter must be at least 27 years old, have photo ID with age available for us, and to show the Hideout. Main renter must reside with the group during the entire rental. All renters' full names must be provided. WHEN IN DOUBT about age, available dates, etc. PLEASE CONTACT US by E-mail or phone.

Guestbook comments from the manager

A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to stay at this property. When I returned, I was impressed with the 2 rooms upgrade that enable one to have a better view of the lake while inside. The weekend we arrived the carpeting downstairs had been changed, and the decks were just painted. We totally enjoyed our stay as we grilled part of the day, roasted marshmallows and partied at night! This beautiful lake is really the icing on the cake, and makes it such a memorable experience. I recommend this house to anyone who appreciates the calm that a lake can trigger in one.

A Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Let me begin by saying that this property was absolutely perfect for our family. We were six adults (grandparents, and two sets of parents) and five children ages 7 and younger. The house was great - plenty of bedrooms and beds for everyone. The gathering spaces were terrific and comfortable. The separate game room was well outfitted and newly air conditioned . The best part, for us, was the lake and it's easy access. The private sandy beach was a huge hit, especially with the kids. Access to the water was especially nice as it was three steps that even the littlest ones could maneuver. The property owner, Carole, was attentive and helpful and even called to tell us about the community fire works! The Hideout community is a terrific setting - pools, beaches, golf, etc. I would absolutely recommend this house! My family and I had a terrific vacation!!
