  • Magical

    "We arrived at The Water House on a Friday evening from New York. Including a stop to pick up food and wood for the weekend, the drive took us under two hours. The minute we drove into the long driveway, we were under the property's spell. When we crossed the footbridge over the babbling creek, the house appeared through the tall pines like something out of a fairy tale illustrated by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. The photos here tell half the story. The owners treat you like family and do everything to make you feel at home, while giving you total privacy. The Water House is full of history and charm. It's spacious, yet cozy. It's near enough to town, yet far from civilization. Surrounded by trees, ferns, and water, visible from the many well-placed windows, the house feels magical, inside and out. The surrounding acreage serves as an "experimental forest," in which the American chestnut is being reintroduced. In the evening, stars are abundant. The only problem we had was deciding where to read: in the screened porch? On the built-in daybed with a view of untouched woodland? In one of the comfortable chairs by the fireplace? We slept like babies, in complete silence and total darkness. We returned to New York on Sunday refreshed and ready to plan a return trip."

  • A Little Bit of Heaven.....

    "We're still basking in the afterglow of one of the best family vacations we've ever had. This beautifully appointed, spacious home on the largest cove in Lake Wallenpaupack is truly a little bit of Heaven. The first class, rustic interior can accommodate a large group of all ages. The master bedroom, with a king sized bed and spacious bath, which includes a jacuzzi tub and a stand-alone tiled shower, is fit for a king and queen. Three other bedrooms, one of which is on the kitchen and patio level and suitable for parents-in-law, and full baths within short steps, provide plenty of privacy. A third floor loft, with two sets of bunk beds, a ping-pong and pool table, board and video games, is a perfect setting for kids indoors where they can make all the noise they want without annoying the adults. A large picture window in the dining area provides a panoramic view of the lake. Add the patio, fire-pit area below, and the lake-front dock and swimming area suitable for young children, and this vacation home is perfect for making family memories. We'll be back next year; can't wait."

  • A Wonderful Place!

    "What a wonderful place to find some R&R! My husband and I are first-timers at this area and the location is very quiet on a street corner. The house amenities are tremendous....dishwasher, washer, dryer and little miscellaneous things in a home are available. You don't have to leave the house to find some activity, swimming pool is more for adults, has deep areas. nice small lake, boating, fire pit, back yard access are great... can't beat the large deck and bbq grill! Wall heating units works great in every room. large a/c unit in living room. Nearest town and tourist areas are about 30 minutes away. What a beautiful view of the lake from the deck to wake up in the morning sipping a cup of coffee! We are from the city and the house is more country-ish style, not modern but very homey. Loved our stay! Definitely will return! Thanks Michael and Celeste!"

  • Loved this place!

    "Loved this house! So cozy & spacious! I loved having the deer right outside the back porch! It would actually come right up to you & eat! The views are amazing! It was just like staying in a home that I had lived in for years! I will definitely be staying here again! The owners were also very easy to deal with & went out of their way to make you feel welcome! I would definitely recommend this rental to everyone!"
