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 holiday 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 Pennsylvania

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.

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

great home with water views

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing on Lake Wallenpaupack for many years, keep a boat at a local marina, and have rented many homes over the years. This year, because of our growing family and baby grand-daughter, we searched for a family-friendly, larger house, with a boat slip. We found it and so much more with this home!! The house is clean, inviting, with good size rooms, and well equipped kitchen, and big gas grill. Lots of outdoor seating and tables on large deck. We kept our boat in the owner's boat slip for the entire week, which was a a big plus. The docks are in good shape, with a swim ladder. All the people we met in the community were friendly. The owners are great, too. My husband had questions concerning the boat slip, and were answered prior to our arrival. We had a wonderful stay and will be back next summer!!

Owner's Response: What a perfectly lovely review. We are so happy that your family enjoyed the house, the lake and the community. It makes renting our home so much more enjoyable when guests have a wonderful experience. We have to say, "Right back at you." You and your family were model guests. You were so respectful of our home and left it as it looked when you arrived. You should know that the neighbors have raved about how nice you and your family were. You and your family were an absolute hit!! Thank you again for your kindness.

Very Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 people in our party and found that the house could accommodate everyone comfortably. Having 3 floors of living space was great, and the master bedroom on the 3rd level with it's own stairwell made it very private and quiet. The dock is close (we could see the boat from the master bedroom deck) and we had a somewhat limited but still decent view of the lake from the main deck. The owners were responsive and very accommodating and I would highly recommend this rental.
