It's time to Book Fall 2016 at the AuBern House, a Lake Wallenpaupack Cabin

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


Minimum Stay
2 nights

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, Sleeps 6 maximum.

Come enjoy a beautiful mountain cabin on Lake Wallenpaupack. Variable nightly rates with special discount to our premier returning visitors. See notes in Rate Section.

Lakefront cabin on Lake Wallenpaupak in the private community of Sunny Point. Our lakefront vacation cabin commands one of the best locations on the lake. The cabin is a perfect get-a-way in any season. Two large picture windows facing eastward provide an unobstructed lake view. Stroll down a gentle sloping gravel pathway to the lakeside patio for morning coffee and a beautiful sunrise. When evening rolls around take in the awesome glow of a moon rising above the mountains with your favorite beverage. Schmann's Nature Reserve directly across the cove restricts development meaning an uninhabited, wooded shoreline to mountaintop. Good hiking there too!

So that maximum pleasure is enjoyed, during the summer season 6 to 7 night minimum stay is preferred.

Enjoy swimming, fishing, boating, sailing from our private dock or enjoy the warmth of the summer sun by just sunbathing! Fall foliage is alive with fantastic blends of red, gold, yellow, brown leaves you can view right from the cabin. In winter, snuggle up to the full stone fireplace after a day of ice fishing or snowmobiling. No need to go anywhere, just enjoy being at the lake.

This home is family inherited from my parents Audrey and Bernie (AuBern) and great for families with children and pets. Yes, we are pet friendly! Newly remodeled cabin features two bedrooms with queen beds and a large loft for the kids. The loft has two single beds. Six people can sleep comfortably between both downstairs and loft.

Improvements continue! A new stair case was installed from the first floor to the basement. Accessing the washer/dryer is so much easier without needing to go outside!

A custom bathroom is all rage! Cement trough sink with pour faucet, Italian floor tiles, corian tub surround, and updgraded eco-toilet.

A large area wood deck spans the entire frontside of the cabin. Bar-b-ques, picnics and general entertaining are ideal for guests and friends.

You can tell we love our cabin and know you will too!

About Rick

My father acquired our cabin in 1964 and it has been THE vacation spot for my family and friends. We live in Hawaii and return several times a year to enjoy 'the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake' and change of seasons.

Rick purchased this cabin in 1964

Why Rick chose Pennsylvania

Our cabin has been in the family for over five decades. We love the wooded shoreline of the lake. Close to Scranton-Wilkes Barre, New York City, Newark International Airport. The quaint town of Hawley is less than five miles away. The area is a good location for antique shopping, fall foliage viewing, summer fun.

What makes this cabin unique

Lake Wallenpaupack is notable for fishing, hunting, and most all water sports. We enjoy our private dock for swimming, boating, and skipping rocks. You can row across the cove to the Schmann's Nature Reserve to hike along the trails. Or boat over to Epply Island for a picnic lunch and exploring. In the fall, the mountainside explode with color!

Wonderful family time

  • 5 of 5

Spent a few days at Rick's cabin last week. My wife, daughter, son in law and myself had a tremendous time. The cabin was equipped with everything you need, in fact I commented to the family that I don't think we've ever rented a place where someone has thought of everything.

The lake was steps from the cabin and even though ours was a winter break, I can only imagine it must be stunning in the spring, summer or fall.

The fireplace was so welcoming, and we had great fun playing the many board games.

Wifi was great, TV functioned well.

The cabin was clean and ready for our arrival.

Bathroom was updated and family room furniture comfortable.

Beds were great and plenty of room for a big group to stay, bear in mind though there's only one bathroom if there's lots of people.

We'd recommend this cabin and by the way Rick was also very welcoming allowing our dog to stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jeff! It's always good to know that folks enjoyed the cabin. AuBern House has everything needed for a hassle free vacation, from the kitchen pantry to bedsheets. Recently our shoreline has undergone a major excavation project that improved accessibility to the lakefront and dock. A new firepit was built and better than ever! And a Pennsylvania Blue Stone pathway replaced loose gravel from the cabin to the lake. Two new queen mattresses with spinal support frames were acquired in October. And it's always a family affair at the AuBern House when pets are welcomed. The AuBern House is truly a place that does not compromise on anything.

Wonderful Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a week's stay at the Aubern House and we can't wait to go back next year! The house was impeccably clean on arrival and we found it to be most charming. 2 beautiful picture windows in the living room and the dining room allowed us to see the beautiful view of Lake Wallenpaupak at all times. The kitchen had everything one could possibly need to prepare meals of all kinds. Our dog, Joanie, had a great time as well. The communication between Ric and ourselves was very prompt and he was most friendly and attentive. Rick thank you for allowing us to share in the beauty of your family's house. It was so great to get back to nature and renew our spirits! Sincerely, Cathy, David and Joanie

Another great vacation at AuBern House

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful weather, refreshing lake swimming and tubing, plenty of kayak time early in the morning, our lab swam til her heart's content, and cookout nights at the campfire. For my family, this is the recipe of a successful vacation! Home is clean, kitchen well stocked, and plenty of outside seating. Glad we have a place to repeat our Lake Wallenpaupack relax time!

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

Beautful lake house right on the lake. View of lake from almost every room. Great porch to hang out on too. Loved lounging on the dock and floating in rafts. We lit campfire both nights loved that the fire pit right by the lake with nice chairs. Wish owner had let me know about his rafts in basement before I spent so much time blowing up mine. Cons were not a great house for a toddler as there is no beach area at house just a rock wall at lakes edge, we looked longingly at next door neighbors beach area; and small child can easily fall off porch. Also expect to be tailgated aggresivly by locals on 590, they show no mercy for people unfamiliar with area. Lastly restaurant options seem limited but maybe we just didn't explore enough. But why go anywhere when the lake house is so enjoyable.

Great, quiet stay for NYE

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at AuBern House. It was even better than we expected, and the pictures did not do the house justice, in my opinion! We definitely felt the love and the family history floating around in this house. My fiance wants to visit again this summer. I said: "Oh, let's look for something new next time." She said: "No, I felt very at home there, right away. And so did Rusty [our dog]."

A very cozy place with a great view of the lake. Everything was very tidy and well-equipped. Coming home from a day of hiking and building a fire in the living room was a real highlight.

Looking forward to more happy days at AuBern in the future.

Perfect house, perfect view

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything we wanted. It has an old fashioned cottage feel and yet a modern kitchen, bath, and heating/plumbing. We enjoyed the well equipped kitchen and comfortable beds. Did not expect wifi but it was available though you will want to stay off your devices and just enjoy the beauty right off the front porch.

So appreciated the firewood available since the firepit right by the lake was our favorite part of our stay.

You must get up early at least once and see the sunrise over the lake. Perfect.

They truly do have the best view of the lake. And we could bring our dog!

Didn't want to leave the property but I did

enjoy walking the trail at nearby Shuman Nature Preserve.

Owner's Response: Dear Zoa: So happy you enjoyed the AuBern House. We always like it when folks bring their dogs. Dogs seem to have more fun than their masters! What fun! AuBern House is certainly a pet friendly place to let your pet be a pet. As much as the cabin is lovely, you'll want to get out for a hike or rowboat ride around on the lake. Thank you for the nice comments and we look forward to having you back again soon. Rick and Tam
