What makes this estate unique

Our lakefront estate can host a variety of events for you and your guests. If you are planning a small wedding or corporate retreat we can accommodate you.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed the third time we have hosted a family reunion at this property. The same things we enjoyed back in 2014 and 2015 were still special in 2016 and enhanced by the owner's care to maintain and improve the rental(s) appeal, comfort and amenities every year. Most particularly, the beds are newer and more comfortable and the furnishings are also better. We spent as much time as possible outside boating and playing lawn games with our assorted age groups and this time, we used the 2nd floor balcony overlooking the lake more because my husband was nursing a broken elbow in a sling and this became his favorite spot to be part of everything yet secure from too much action! We ate outside and used the barbecue a number of times and thus kept the cooking simple. As before, the fireworks on the 4th were a big hit as we gathered around the firepit, made some-mores' and the kids ran about with all their glow-stick paraphernalia. Probably the best feature of the Main House/Chalet rental is the number of bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate many family dynamics....small kids or teens, older folks, and in-between. There are gathering places for smaller groups and room for a crowd when wanted. Thanks for adding to all our great memories of time spent at beautiful Lake Wallenpaupack!

Perfect lakeside summer rental home.

  • 5 of 5

Both houses were great and very comfortable and the yard was perfect for the kids. Great spot for a mini family reunion. Would definitely recommend it to anyone. Even my 85 year old mother loved it!

Wonderful Family Fun Location

  • 5 of 5

Our review is way overdue. In July 2016 our family of 18, including 7 grandchildren from ages 1 to 12, arrived for our 2nd stay at Lake Wallenpaupack. Beginning in 2008 our family has taken vacations together every other year and as our family size has grown we moved from vacations at Lake George to Lake Wallenpaupack. We discovered these beautiful homes in 2014 and since that first visit the houses have been updated with central air and other amenities. The homes are just perfect for a family get away with fishing and swimming as the highlights. Arriving the properties were extremely clean and ready for us to unpack and have fun. The property Manager, Cindy was very responsive to any questions before, during and after our stay. Our family always enjoys time at Claws and Paws, lunch or dinner at the Dock, formerly Ehrhardt's, and ice cream in town. You know it's a great place when your grandkids have already started talking about the "next time" we go to Lake Wally. In planning our 2018 family vacation, our hope is to return to this wonderful family retreat!.

Perfect Family Reunion Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a Long Over Due Family Reunion at this Magnificent Lakefront Property this past summer, and I must say it was Perfect.

We had 23 people staying at the property, and it was very comfortable.

The two homes were very clean, well maintained, well appointed, and just plain charming, with tasteful lake theme decorations and furniture.

The Main house is directly on the lake with incredible views from every floor.

The Master Bedroom is very large and beautiful, and the views from the large windows takes your breath away.

The Chalet is very cute, comfortable and we were all surprised that the Views and Sunsets from this home were also lovely.

The Bottom level of the main house was a great gathering / party area as well, we played cards, watched the ball game, and the had drinks at the bar.

The Large Flat Yard (which is unusual for a property on Lake Wallenpaupak) was a wonderful place for the family to hang out, picnic, relax and for the kids to play.

We Grilled daily at lakeside, and ate outside almost every day.

We saw lots of wildlife including Hawks, Herons, Seagulls, and even a Bald Eagle. If you awoke early we would see families of deer drinking out of the lake.

The Sunsets from the yard and large balconys of both homes are just stunningly beautiful.

At night we had a fire at one of the two lakefront fireplaces and roasted marshmallows, hot dogs, and sausage, while looking at the stars and listening to the water lapping on the lake shore. The Gazebo at lakeside was a nice place to sit and eat as well.

We swam, kayaked, the kids used the paddle board, and had a blast. We fished off of the private dock daily and caught a lot of Smallmouth & Lagemouth Bass, some very large Channel Catfish, and even 2 nice size Striped Bass. We took our boat out daily for adventures on the beautiful clean lake.

All in all it was a Perfect Time at a Perfect Property. We look forward to returning next summer.

Relaxing Vacay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house with a large group of people! We used the main and guest house during our stay. We had a wonderful time and found it to be so very relaxing in comparison to trips to the shore. We had some cloudy and cool weather st the start of our week, but we still enjoyed every minute. By mid week the weather was beautiful and we had to drag the children out of the water each night to watt dinner! We did most our meals in crockpots which allowed us to fully enjoy each day. We spent nights roasting marshmallows buy the fire pit. Overall the house was nice. The kitchen was a decent size, snd easily worked in. We felt it could use some new pots and pans.

We stayed at the propert ywith a large group, we have stayed at these homes for multiple years and they are in very nice shape with excellent upkeep and amenities that will keep you busy for your time here!!! The homes are very well kept and CLEAN !!! This year we actually had one of our family members get married in the back yard during our week stay, and the setting was spectacular !!! We were able to set up some decoartions and tables in the large back yard and enjoy all the sunshine and lake activities during the days event.

I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to spend a nice relaxin week away at Lake Wallenpaupack !!

House in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great family vacation on the lake. The house was clean and had plenty of room for all of our guests. The views were amazing! It was great having a cup of coffee on the deck in the morning and a glass of wine watching the sunset. The kids had a blast doing all the water sports and just playing on the level yard which is hard to come by up there. Would definitely rent it again.
