About the property

3 BR, 2 Bath, Lakeview Home That Sleeps 8

We fell in love with it and we know you will too! This house is a charming cottage right across the street from the lake with views of the lake from almost every room in the house, and a brand new dock where you can keep any boat that you bring or rent up to about 21 feet long. We will make you feel right at home with a real wood burning fireplace, a fully fenced in yard, an outdoor real stone fire pit, charming stone walls and pathways also. Here you can get away from it all during any season of the year, yet still have all the comforts and amenities of home and more. We even have a massage cushion in a comfy rocking chair to help you let go of all your stress. It is perfect for couples and families with children of all ages! There are 2 Bedrooms with Queen Beds, including a large Master Bedroom Suite, a Bedroom with Twin Bunk Beds, and a Queen Sleeper Sofa. There are 2 full baths, one with Tub and Shower and the other with Handicapped-Friendly Walk In shower with Seat.

We have many updates and modern conveniences including regular & Keurig coffee makers, microwave, dish washer, Washer/Dryer, ceiling fans, Cable TVs, free WiFi, books, games, puzzles and more. You can choose from a wide assortment of our coffee & teas, apple cider or hot chocolate; and then sit in anti-gravity chairs on our spacious deck- with views of the shimmering lake. We have a double driveway for off street parking for up to 4 cars and/or boats or jet skis.

You can relax all day in our private, peaceful but friendly community right next to a 300 acres of woodlands and hiking trails at Shuman's Point Natural Area. Or you can fill your day with fun activities on the lake and in the surrounding areas. The nearest dock to swim or fish off of or relax on or near are just 100 feet away. In the summer you can dock your own boat or other toys in our boat slip just a short walk away (about 500 feet). In autumn there is beautiful fall foliage to admire on nature walks. There are so many nearby activities you can enjoy: Multiple Nature Sanctuaries, Museums, Health Spas, Waterfalls, Golf, Claws and Paws Wild Animal Park, Costa's Family Fun Center, Horseback Riding, White Water Rafting, Zip Lining, Skiing and Tubing and more. There are also many restaurants and stores nearby, including a full Supermarket, Pharmacy, Health Food Store, Antique shops, etc.

We have a Weber Charcoal Grill on the deck and a fully stocked kitchen for preparing meals. We just ask that you buy your own groceries but feel free to use our condiments, seasonings, and spices. All pillows, bedding, and towels are provided. We prefer weekly rentals from Sun to Sun, but we will consider all requests. Smoking is not permitted, but house trained dogs are allowed, and there is only a one time extra $50 fee for the extra cleaning required. No large parties allowed. We just love our lake house too much to let it get destroyed. We just ask that your treat our home the way you would your own.

About Sharon Gregory

I am a Physician Assistant and my husband is a Medical Writer. We have been married for 21 years and have 2 wonderful daughters, ages 13 & 16. This is the first time we have been able to own a vacation home that we are able to enjoy ourselves and share with others. We have been successfully renting this property 2013 with excellent reviews and many repeat renters.

Sharon Gregory purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Sharon Gregory chose Sunny Point

We visited Lake Wallenpaupack for the first time last year and fell in love with the area and all it has to offer. I found this home that was 'For Sale by Owner' as I was riding my bicycle around the area while we were on vacation. I brought my husband and daughters with me to look at it later that day and they all liked it as much as I did. The owners were a very nice couple, Sheila and Ed that had owned the house and property for many years. Sheila's mother had lived there and they took great care in caring for the home and making improvements to make her life easier, and many happy memories were made here. We purchased this house in December and then spent some time and energy making other improvements to make it our 'home away from home'.

What makes this cottage unique

We have a dock that you can keep your boat at and a boat launch right nearby. Our property is on a double corner lot in a quiet but friendly private community with partial lake views from all rooms except one. This home was renovated and decorated with love and an attention to detail. The spacious deck offers the best view of the lake especially during the late fall to early spring. The fenced in yard allows us to bring our dogs with us on vacations and allows us to rent to fellow dog lovers, who also think of their dogs as part of their family that deserve a vacation too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a very nice time even if the weather didn't want to cooperate on Sat. The house very nice and clean, we drank more coffee than we should have, but it was fun trying different ones. We just got back from the store and got some Apple Cider which we all liked. My wife enjoyed meeting some of the neigbors, and loved the deer feeding everyday across the street with the cats right next too them. We enjoyed making a fire outside on Sat night. and also going to Ehrhardt's for dock and dine on Sunday for lunch Thanks again for letting us check out late, it gave us one more trip around the lake and time for lunch..

We talked about doing a week next year, so hopefully we can find one thats open.

Comfortable and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We loved the place. We were comfortable as soon as we got there. We love the yard too - perfect to hang out in and great for the dogs! Only wish was that the couches weren't too comfortable tho. Also, love the master bedroom and all of the "extras." Thank you for putting so much effort into your guest home.

comfortable pet-friendly rental

  • 4 of 5

The owner provided a comfortable, well-stocked house for a lovely 1-week vacation. The house is located across the street from the lake, so no direct access to the water, but there are a few close docks that renters can use to get to the water. The property is perfect for dog owners because there is a fenced in yard, but may want to avoid if you do not have a dog. The living room has a distinct 'dog' smell that may be a turn off. The couches, in particular, had a bad smell. Additionally, the house is 3-bedroom, but it's really only good for 3 or 4 adults & 2 kids. The master had a nice big bed for 2 adults, but the smaller bedrooms had I think a full size bed in one & a bunk bed in the other. I tried to use the couch in the living room for a third kid (it's a pull-out) but it did not open. I had to buy an air mattress for the him to sleep on. Otherwise I would recommend the house & the area for a relaxing vacation.

Owner's Response: We are right across a very narrow street from the lake, but our elevated lot allows for nice views of the shimmering water and sunrises from the house and the deck and yard, and several community docks and a boat launch are all only a short walk away. We decided to allow pets in our home away from home because we consider them furry members of the family, but we definitely do not want those without pets to be scared away. Our cleaning company cleans the couches as well as all the other surfaces in between every rental, and we are always making updates to optimize everyone's comfort. We just had a brand new kitchen floor and new kitchen faucet installed and the gutters cleaned and repaired this week, and have more upgrades planned in the next few weeks. We already confirmed that the pull-out queen sofa is in perfect working order. The bar must have been pulled off instead of upward and outward, but it was easily reattached, and opens up to a Queen sized bed. Besides the twin bunks, the other two bedrooms have Queen sized beds also. We were upset to hear that there was a bad odor, so we will make sure to steam clean the couches extra and/or change out anything that is not "up to snuff" ASAP! Thank you for you feedback.

Quiet retreat

  • 3 of 5

Nice property for folks with pets, the fenced yard was a big plus. Neighborhood is quiet and friendly.

Place is convenient to amenities and restaurants but not too close.

Comfortable home but could use some updating.

Overall a reasonable deal for the cost.

Owner is very pleasant to work with and informative as to the area. We found this helpful as "out of town'ers"
