About Bridget Gelderman

I am a rental & real estate agent in the Lake Region. I am here to help two parties (homeowner & renter) find each other and have a great experience with minimum fuss & headache. My rentals cater to families and I maintain minimum standards to be part of the vacation rental program. We want clean, well maintained homes available for rent. I love what I do and am happy to help your family find your next amazing memory.

Why Bridget Gelderman chose Pennsylvania

This is a great lakefront property, centrally located on Lake Wallenpaupack, just a few miles from the town of Hawley, grocery stores, restaurants, hiking, shopping, restaurants and more. Amazing sunset views. This property is a wonderful lakefront home, clean, well maintained and in a great location! It is apparent that the owners take great pride in their house and the property.

What makes this house unique

Swim, fish or boat steps away from the home. Beautiful home. Amazing views of the lake!

Spacious home with a fabulous view.

  • 5 of 5

Home is great for a large party. Plenty of room with a great view of the lake and a gently sloping lawn with trees so you can sit in the shade down by the water.

5 North Shore Tafton, Pa

  • 4 of 5

Hi Bridgette,

The property was awesome as it was the year before. Listening to the wives I only have two suggestions. The cushions on the enclosed porch furniture needs to be improved on. It is barely 1" thick. Window screens, mainly bathrooms would be good. That's all I have, we had a great time. The well stocked kitchen utensils was awesome for my gourmet meals (my opinion).

Great Lake Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Myself and a group of friends loved our weekend spent at this lake house. We rented the place from Thursday to Sunday and enjoyed every minute of it. The house had tons of space with plenty of rooms for everyone in our party. A modern kitchen, screened in back porch looking out onto the lake and spacious downstairs living room all came in handy. The house also had a long backyard that led right down to doc and fire pit where we spent an entire night hanging out. As advertised the house is right on the lake and in a super quiet area. Also loved that it was close to town where everything was easily accessible. Would rent this house again for sure.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Lake Wallenpaupack. The house was lovely, well maintained, and very spacious. We enjoyed the screened in porch and firepit almost every night. The ping pong table, games, movies, and books were enjoyed, especially when the weather was uncooperative. My husband was so happy that the dock could accommodate our boat and 2 jet skis and the jet ski ramps were an added bonus.Having easy access to them on the property was fantastic. The description on the website is very accurate and don't be hesitant about the picture of the garage on the website. The house faces the water and it is lovely. Cindy and her team from Concierge Services were wonderful and were only a phone call away if we needed them. Our first trip to Lake Wallenpaupack was a memorable one.
