About Cindy

My husband & I enjoyed decorating our home a little different from the norm. We call it the Jungle at the Lake due to the decorations in the livingroom. Hope our guests enjoy it.

Why Cindy chose Poconos

If you want a place where the breeze almost always blows gently off the lake, this is for you. Southern exposure on a cove.

A unique house in a perfect location with everything you need for a relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

The lake was beautiful. The house had everything we needed for a relaxing stay. I especially liked the hammock and swings out back. It's a unique house in a perfect location. The homeowners were a pleasure to communicate with.

Charming spot

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to call home on the water. Truly a great spot to get away from it all for a while. Everything you need is right here, and one of our favorite things to do was to enjoy eating on the upper deck with a bird's eye view of the lake.

Wonderful location!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location of this property! Close to hiking, Claws and Paws zoo, lots of quiet roads to walk in the neighborhood. We enjoyed swimming and fishing off the dock, relaxing on the hammock and having campfires. The view of the lake is great. The house is well stocked and we found everything we needed. We had a great week!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Lake Wallenpaupack! The home was as advertised, comfortable, spacious and very homey. The home was clean and well maintained. There was something to do for everyone books, games, rafts, noodles and bikes. The owner was great, no problems and very easy to get in touch with. We had a problem with our boat while we were there and Lighthouse Marina was fantastic. They had my boat back in the water in 3 hours and were fantastic to us! Our experience could not have been better from start to finish. I can't believe how easy the whole experience has been. We would certainly like to go back in the future and would highly recommend this property to all our friends and relatives.

Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

There are many things that worked together to make this property the perfect vacation rental for our family.

First, the owners are a pleasure to work with and they are available for any questions you may have. Next, the location of the home is ideal. Lake Wallenpaupack is huge and there is a lot of boat traffic on the lake. However, this home is located in a cove that is not entered by most of the lake traffic. Although, it is a cove, it is large enough to be a lake unto itself and it is quite beautiful. The cove is quiet enough for safe kayaking.

If you have a motorboat, the Ledgeland Recreational Area has a boat launch that provides stress free boat launching for $8 and it is only about 10 minutes from the house by car, and 5 by boat at a slow speed. The dock has an area to safely secure your boat.

The dock is large enough to have many sunbathers on it at one time. For the fisher persons in your group, there are some big fish right off the end of the dock. We don't fish, but we saw them jumping.

The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are very nice. The front yard has a campfire area complete with chairs for your comfort. The owners have supplied just about anything you may need for your recreation including bikes, horseshoes, and a dartboard.

There are a ton of games and DVD's at your disposal and the porch is a great place to hang out and play Trivia Pursuit and any other game that you enjoy. The home is round and the energy flows nicely. The weather at this time was PERFECT for sleeping and everyone got some great shut eye time.

The town of Hamlin is about 15 minutes away and is very easy to get to. There are lots of great roads for adventure rides. We highly recommend this home for your family vacation. The home sleeps 8 persons comfortably.
