Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 3 adults and 4 kids and had an amazing Labor Day weekend! The house was very clean and sizewise accommodated our group perfectly! You can't beat the location and available dock slip if you rent a boat, it's a 2 min walk! The kids loved playing on the swings by the docks. Regina was great communicating all the way through and directions left for everything were clear! Would love to see an extra couch in living room for lounging and relaxing!

Relaxing Lake Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice, easily accommodating 10 people, and the area beautiful. Every morning took a walk and saw many deer, chipmunks, rabbits, ducks and toads. The lake is just down the hill. The kids swam for hours every day.

Couldn't have been more perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We got married this past weekend and rented this house from Regina and Steve. From the very beginning, Regina was nothing but kind and helpful. We arrived to a clean, gorgeous, well maintained big home that was perfect for my families needs. It is steps from the lake, was air conditioned perfectly, and wonderful for my wedding morning of getting ready. I can't recommend this property enough, and the owners are some of the kindest people and we have never even met. Regina, thank you for all that you did to ensure my wedding was perfect- the mirror and extra air condotioners totally made the day. We can't wait to visit again! Thank you so much and I'll send pictures soon!

The cottage was a wonderfully warm and cozy place for us to spend our Thanksgiving holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything we needed to enjoy our Thanksgiving. It is charming and comfortable and very conducive to family time around the fire. The kitchen was well stocked with the things we needed to cook family meals. The bedrooms and bathroom were comfortable and very clean. The owners were very responsive to my emails and very helpful in giving me information about the area. All in all it was a great experience and we look forward to doing it again some time.

One for the Books!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at this property, we knew we had hit the jackpot...beautiful, charming home with a large deck and lake views as well as great proximity to the boat slip and swimming area. The house is comfortable and spacious and there are 4 bedrooms and a fold out couch in the family room. We used them all! As for the dock--it only took us about two minutes to walk to the dock. Having a slip for our boat at no extra cost was very convenient and cost-saving.

This house worked for our group of twenty somethings and we could see how this house would also work for families with children of all ages.

We can't say enough about the helpfulness and caring of the owners. They communicated with us regularly, answered our questions promptly and sent us materials to help us before and during our stay. They treated us like family.

The house was immaculate and all linens were provided--such a convenience.

We are booking for next year for sure. Our only regrets are that we could not stay longer and that we cannot give this property 6 stars!

Thank you again. Sincerely, Regina and Steve

About Steven and Regina Wagner

While we live in upstate New York, our children basically grew up on Lake Wallenpaupack during the summers and some winter weekends and holidays. The summer was an exciting time for our entire family as we boated, swam, water skied, tubed to our hearts' delight. Dining al fresco on most summer nights was delightful as we watched boats coming in to the dock or taking an early night 'stroll' down the Lake. The winter months brought skiing, sleigh riding, snowball fights, snowman building and and the little joys of the winter season followed by a nice evening circle of family and friends around the brick fireplace or wood stove. We hope other people seeking fun, relaxation, and time together will enjoy this charming place as much as we did.

Steven and Regina Wagner purchased this house in 1996

Why Steven and Regina Wagner chose Tafton

Originally, we owned a small home on the other end of Spinnler Point. We liked the people in our neighborhood and had a short walk to the lake. However, over time we outgrew our original home and were approached by community members at the other end of the Point to look at 104 Shore Rd. We chose this property, first, because of its location--just a few skips down to the dock. Also the neighbors were fun and created a friendly atmosphere. The neighborhood was well maintained. We liked the spaciousness of the home--4 bedrooms, 3 baths, a living room with fireplace, dining area, kitchen, family room, laundry room, one car garage, lovely yard. A walk or bike ride from our property throughout Spinnler Point Colony was fun exercise along the many routes we could take to return to the house.

What makes this house unique

The house was spacious and well laid out but it was our vision of what this house could be that inspired us to purchase it. New wooden floors, large palladium windows in the living room, other new flooring, and a 'country living' decorating style all our own made the house 'ours' and added great warmth to the house. Our neighbors were always so kind and helpful and enjoyed chatting down by the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

To the Wagners, We really enjoyed the weekend at your beautiful home. Our sister-in-law, who is from Germany, said this reminded her of her weekends in Germany. Thank you for the wonderful memories.
