Overview

Pennsylvania House Rental Photos and Description

House, 6 Bedrooms (sleeps 16), 3 baths, private beach, HOT TUB for 6, game room

House with its own PRIVATE BEACH, DOCK, FIRE PIT on the beach, HOT TUB (for 6), GAME ROOM, and BASKETBALL court in parking lot. ENJOY the VIEW of the LAKE, and the SUNRISE, WHILE IN the HOT TUB, or on one of the decks.

This house is in the Hideout, a 4 star gated community.

The house has AIR CONDITIONING IN EVERY ROOM, and 2 wood burning FIREPLACES.

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 (Please be sure to 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 (in every room), full size PING PONG and POOL tables, HOCKEY table, DART game, plus bowling and other children games. The game room also has a sofa, at least 16 chairs, tables, etc. This game room is detached from the house, permitting all night playing without disturbing anyone in the house. The game room has a tape/5 CD changer stereo player, and 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, and 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 and twin on top. 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 16 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 has a family room with a sofa (futon), and a bunk futon, with a twin bed on top, and 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, a 2nd wood burning fire place, 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 6th bedroom with a bunk futon bed. (The bottom - is a double bed, top is a twin bed, and 3 can sleep on it). This 6th bedroom has a TV, DVD player, and A/C. That room has 3 large uncovered windows that face the lake.

The HOT TUB is on the third/basement level, inside a 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.

NO PETS ALLOWED

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 just 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 AFTER EVERY RENTAL.)

There is a $300 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, the 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 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.

THE CURRENT PRICES ARE FOR 12 RENTERS, and THAT NUMBER 12 INCLUDES INFANTS, if you have any. NO ADDITIONAL ADULT OR INFANT ABOVE 16 PEOPLE IS ALLOWED ON THE PREMISES DURING ANY RENTAL.

We request a list of the names of everyone staying at the house, including infants. KEEP IN MIND THAT PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE ESPECIALLY AROUND HOLIDAYS. You may have up to 16 people maximum in your group, however, it will be $15 extra for each of those additional 4 people per night. If a rental is for a week, each additional renter above 12 pays $14.00 per night, up to 16 renters.

A MINIMUM 3 NIGHTS rental is required ON HOLIDAYS. Year round at least 2 nights rental is required. Three nights' rental is also required from Memorial day weekend Friday May 27, 2016, through Thursday June 16, 2016. Summer weekly rentals start on June 17, 2016.

NEW YEARS EVE requires 3 nights' rental. Any of the 3 nights including New Year's Eve is at $625.00 per night, for a total of $1875.75 for those 3 nights.

WEEKLY RENTALS refer to arrival Friday, to departure the following Friday. Those weekly rates increase when there is a holiday during that rental week.

RENTERS - Main renter must be at least 25 years old, and have photo ID with age to show. All renters 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.

Recently returned from a week at the house, very happy with the location and management of the home. The owner runs a tight ship and is very nice to deal with, house is clean and provides a week of relaxing easy living.

Thank you for letting us share your home.

And all my grand kids caught fish, a good memory for Pop Pop the fishing king LOL

AMAZING STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our bachelor party group! The scenery was beautiful and was a great break from the city life. We also go very lucky with the weather too so were able to take full advantage of the beach, fire-pit and golfing nearby. The game room and jacuzzi were also great amenities to have. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks for the great stay!

By far the best mini vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for 16 ppl for my birthday getaway on march 4th through the 6th, amongst Family and friends. The home was huge and very spacious, i can not wait to rent it again. We enjoyed out time there and it felt like home. The game room and lakeview was amazibg. The home owner Carole was by far the most sweetest person to speak to. Any questions or worries I had she communicated with me immediately whether it was through email or cell phone she was rapid on her response and I am so happy I chose this home. CAROLE is a phenomenal person and I can not wait for our next mini vacation again. Looking forward to the summer. Thank you again Carole for your hospitality

What a wonderful getaway home

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing. It was the perfect balance between secluded but safe. It has everything you could possible want right on the lake, a fire pit on a sandy shore which makes it feel like ur on a beach especially because the house is set far back. So much space. There were 10 of us in the house and everyone had their own room and space to hang out in. The fireplace inside made for a nice place where we all sat to play board games or watch movies. the hot tub was the icing on the cake. It was roomy and perfect we didn't spend much time in there but the one night we did turned out to be very fun! The game room in the garage I completely forgot about until I was exploring the house and wanted to see what was in the garage lol pool table, pong table, dominos... And a tv to watch stuff while ur playing! There was plenty to do in there. It was a nice place to spend the night in. Even tho it was cloudy and rainy throughout our stay there was so much light in the morning, it was nice. They have plenty of pots and pans and kitchen ware we didn't need to use anything we brought! The bedrooms are perfectly spacious enough room to put ur bags and have space to walk around. It was, in general, an amazing house. I will definitely be looking into staying here over the summer!

GREAT HOME TO STAY !

  • 5 of 5

The picture do not do the home Justice. It is very spacious . There were 16 of us and it never felt like we were on top of each other. The owner labeled everything. Literally EVERYTHING. Very helpful there was nothing to guess about. Overall , I would stay again. It was a bit cold to truly enjoy the bonfire but the privet beach was a great addition. The hot tub got cold on us we don't know why so we only used it when we first arrived. Game room is great. Up to date kitchen. No real complaints . Great vacation get away for a large group

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We had the hot tub checked, and confirmed it to be in proper working condition. We have some idea as to why the water cooled off, and can bring it to the attention of future renters. Our apologies for any issue you may have experienced.
