About Greg Rice
Our family has been coming to the Lake Wallenpaupack region for generations - mother's side of the family emigrated to nearby Hawley. Lake Wallenpaupack offers fantastic outdoor activities on a year-round basis as well as the small town ambiance of Hawley and its environs. Excellent restaurants, music venues, hiking trails, quiet backroads for biking, fresh water fishing (including terrific fly fishing) hunting in season provide myriad options. Or just stay put and relax with a good book. It's all here for you.
Greg Rice purchased this Chalet in 2002
Why Greg Rice chose Lakeville
Ten years ago, this property came on the market and we saw it as a great opportunity to own something different and special on the Big Lake. Most of the properties on Lake Wallenpaupack butt up right against each other. This property is completely unique as it sits on 39 wooded acres and yet offers 75 feet of private shoreline with its own private dock. Walking along Purdy Creek on the property causes one to immediately forget the daily grind. Not unusual to spot white tail deer, bald eagles, ospreys, pilated woodpeckers and many other bird species while you are here. Come enjoy the privacy that attracted us to this unique spot.
What makes this Chalet unique
Perhaps the most unique property on Lake Wallenpaupack. Brookmere Chalet sits back from the hustle and bustle and offers a private retreat where you can relax the moment you arrive. The chalet sits on 39 wooded acres for you to hike, mountain bike (cleared trail) or just explore, with beautiful Purdy Creek running through it. Most properties on the lake have homes directly on either side of them and are far from quiet. Not so with our chalet and when you are ready to enjoy the lake, just walk down the easy path to your own private dock where there is a rowboat and Sunfish sailboat waiting for you to enjoy. Or bring your own boat or jet ski (or you can rent them from a nearby marina) and dock them right at your own dock. The lake's water is pristine and offers excellent swimming and fishing.

We had a wonderful time.
My children and their spouses joined my at the chalet. The House was cozy and clean with plenty of room for the seven of us. We went on an hour long hike of the property and then took turns taking the row boat out. That was hilarious since none of us were very experienced. The owner Greg was very quick to text me when I had questions and the property manager met us at arrival to make sure we were happy with everything. I would definitely return.
Beautiful relaxing week.
We stayed with twin 1 year olds and a 3 year old. The house was great for them as there were doors everywhere and once shut, they could play and easily be seen! The dock was absolutely beautiful. It sits at the end of a quiet cove, think of it as a cul de sac of the lake. At first, I was bummed the dock was down the steep driveway and across the road but we made it work and enjoyed it very much. (We noticed most properties are like this). We hiked the land around the house with our 3 year old and we all loved it! Was great to connect with nature. Overall. Loved the house and enjoyed our stay tremendously!
Great location, plenty of room.
Wonderful Week at Wallenpaupack
A roomy house, a great location for everything in the area, feeling of great privacy, efficient manager who resolved any difficulties--we plan to return!
Great secluded location
We enjoyed the dock, fishing, rowboat, and firepit. Good waterskiing during the week. Crowded on the weekends. Plenty to do even in the rain.
Just what we were looking for !
I loved this property! At first I was a little bummed that it's actually across the street from the lake. But once being there for a day or two it didnt really matter. The house was plenty spacious for a few of my family members who came up for a night.
The dock being at the end of the cove was perfect, it was quiet and private.The street the cabin is on is not that busy, and people actually slowed down and stopped to let us cross to the dock. Nice calm water so our new boat didnt smash against the dock.
I was allowed to bring one of my dogs who had a great time as well! He loved the woods behind the cabin to explore and the calm water at the dock to swim in. The fire pit by the water was very nice.
The driveway is steep, so best to drop boat off at dock instead of trying to take it up driveway. Makes for a great workout tho!
Greg was prompt on answering any of my questions and John (the reality company) was very nice. He met us at the cabin and gave me a tour. The house is clean and cozy, felt like home.
It was an overall wonderful vacation. I definitely plan on staying there again next year!
