House with its own PRIVATE BEACH, DOCK, FIRE PIT on the beach, HOT TUB, GAME ROOM, and BASKETBALL court in parking lot. ENJOY the VIEW of the LAKE, and the SUNRISE, from the beach or from one of the decks.

In the last 3 months of 2017, we have done a great deal of renovations, upgrading our kitchen, living room, and now have an additional room for the Hot Tub, an additional bathroom, and 2 new decks. The top deck is about 30 feet long and about half of it has a glass roof. This means that you can be outside while it rains and barbecue.

This house is in the Hideout, a 4 star gated community. They offer activities for adults, teens, and toddlers. During the summer they have swimming and tennis lessons, day camps, and sports camps available.

Our listed prices are for 10 PEOPLE, including infants. An additional $25 per person, per night is to be paid to have up to 14 people, even if those additional 4 people are infants. (During the weekly summer rentals, it's $20 per additional renter per night, up to 14 renters.)

Therefore, the MAXIMUM number of people who can be in the house or on the premises during a rental period is 14.

Check-in is at 3: PM. CHECK-OUT is at 11: AM.

The house has AIR CONDITIONING IN EVERY ROOM, (including the game room), and has a wood burning FIREPLACE.

There are five 55 inch FLAT SCREEN TVs, in the house, plus one 50 inch TV, one 40 inch TVs, and 2 older average size TVs.

The community has 2 beaches, one swimming pool for adults, one for children, fishing, skiing on the premises, (weather and snow availability permitting,) etc. Keep in mind that SWIMMING IS AT YOUR OWN RISK, whether in the lake, or in the pools. (Swimming pools are available for use from Memorial day through Labor day.)

You can RENT A BOAT close to the main pool. (You can also bring a boat no bigger than 17 feet... Final on size and insurance have to be discussed with the Hideout...)

The house offers FREE WIRELESS INTERNET access.

Special Property Features:

1. GAME ROOM. A 23 x 23 foot garage turned into a game room. It's carpeted, heated, has AIR CONDITIONING, ceiling fans, TV, cable, DVD player, full size PING PONG and POOL tables, HOCKEY table, plus bowling and other children games. The game room also has a sofa, at least 14 chairs, and tables. This game room is detached from the house, permitting all night playing without disturbing anyone in the house. - The game room has a small to medium size refrigerator.

2. PRIVATE BEACH. There is a private sandy beach on the property with its own DOCK, a FIRE PIT, and an adult 2-3 sitter WOODEN SWING. Swimming is allowed in the lake, as well as fishing. Keep in mind that swimming in the lake, or pools is at your own risk. Diving is not allowed. Any fish you catch, you must release back in the lake (or you get a fine). Ask the Hideout about the required permit for fishing, or for boats. - A pole light on the beach permits its use at night. Please do not leave children alone on the dock, or on the beach. Even if they are with you, ensure that children, or anyone who does not know how to swim, has a life vest on. This floating dock shakes, (due to the motion of the water). The dock extends 16 feet into the water.

HOUSE LAYOUT: Top level has 2 bedrooms with A/C, queen bed in one room, & a bunk bed with full size mattress on top and bottom. A bathroom is in the center of these 2 rooms.

Main floor has a master bedroom with a king size bed and A/C, a bathroom, kitchen, dining room, living room with A/C, and one wood burning fire place. An additional dining room with large windows facing the lake, allows full view of the lake, and also allows 14 people to eat together.

Third level (basement) has a 4th bedroom with a queen size bed, A/C, TV, and a DVD player. In addition, the third level has a family room with a futon with a full size mattress at bottom, and twin mattress on top. This family room used as a 5th bedroom also has a bar, TV, DVD player, a bathroom, and a laundry room with a washer and dryer.

As one exits the family room through the sliding glass doors, there is a sun room turned into a 6th bedroom with a futon with a full size mattress at bottom, and twin on top. This 6th bedroom has a TV, DVD player, and A/C. That room has 3 large uncovered windows that face the lake.

The newly built room on the third level, has the HOT TUB, and the fourth and new bathroom.

We provide pillows and blankets, please bring your own sheets, towels and pillow cases.

LAKE WALLENPAUPACK is about 15... minutes from the house, and provides water activities and waterfront restaurants. For skiing, SNOW and ELK mountain are about 25 minutes away, CAMELBACK mountain is about 40-45 minutes away.

NO PETS ALLOWED. (The Hideout issues FINES for any pet seen in the community without being registered at the Hideout.)

Keep in mind that besides our rental fee, the Hideout charges a registration fee of $100 for up to 3 nights. (We do not charge you the $125 for 4 to 7 nights' rental that they charge. We charge $100 for all length of stays.)

We charge $150 for cleaning. ( Cleaning crews have to clean 3 levels, and the game room.)

There is a $245 SECURITY DEPOSIT required, IN ADDITION TO the required $79 RENTER'S INSURANCE, that's offered by HOMEAWAY/VRBO. The reason for the security deposit is because your renter's insurance will not pay for every charge you cause. For example, if anyone in your party gets a speeding ticket, a littering ticket, etc at the Hideout, your renter's insurance will not pay for it. (Inside the Hideout, this gated community, the speed limit is 15 to 25 mph.) Therefore, if someone in your party gets a speeding ticket, or any other ticket at the Hideout, your security deposit will be used to pay for that ticket. The security deposit will also be used to cover anything else the renter's insurance will not pay for.

The Hideout charges a late fee of $40 if given less than 2 working days to process your registration paperwork.

Pennsylvania charges a 6% state sales tax for short term rentals, meaning rentals less than 30 days, and a 3% rental tax for Wayne County. (That's why we charge you those taxes.)

Renters cannot be substituted, and take the place of another in the middle of a rental. Renters can leave anytime, but others cannot come in to take their place.

We request a list of the FULL NAME of everyone staying at the house, INCLUDING INFANTS. Copy of a picture ID of the main renter is required.


MAXIMUM 5 CARS are allowed during any rental period.

A MINIMUM 3 NIGHTS rental is required ON HOLIDAYS. Year round at least 2 nights' rental is required. Summer weekly rentals start on .June 23, 2018.

NEW YEARS EVE requires 3 nights' rental. Any of the 3 nights including New Year's Eve is at $450.00 per night, for a total of $1350 plus fees, for those 3 nights for 10 people.

Summer WEEKLY RENTALS refer to arrival Saturday, to departure the following Saturday. (We were just able to get cleaners for Saturdays, as most seem to prefer Saturday arrivals.)

RENTERS - Main renter must be at least 26 years old, have photo ID with age available for us, and to show the Hideout. Main renter must reside with the group during the entire rental. WHEN IN DOUBT about age, available dates, etc. PLEASE CONTACT US by E-mail or phone.

                                                              PERFECT Weekend GETAWAY!

                                                              All my friends loved the house, we cannot wait to come back in the summer this time & actually use the lake. Carole was extremely helpful & responded back right away with any questions we had. She was a wonderful host. Game room & Hot tub room was just a cherry on the top with all the amenities this house has to offer. Picture perfect scenery even in the winter. Loved every bit of it. We are definitely coming back for a longer stay in summer! :)

                                                              Great Home!

                                                              Great property. Had a wonderful weekend! Owner was very helpful!

                                                              Fantastic home with brand new upgrades and a wonderful owner

                                                              Connie L.

                                                              Booked this lovely home with a few friends to celebrate the new year. Prior to the time of our booking, we received a call from Carole who gave us detailed instructions on how to find the house, unlock, receive guest passes, and access the amenities in the community. In addition, we got some surprise news that many parts of the house had been upgraded/built/remodeled.

                                                              The kitchen was beautiful with new granite counters, fully supplied with cooking ware, and a very handy automatic/touch-free sink. The new hardwood floors were a nice finishing touch to the renovations on the ground level. We were also pleasantly to hear and enjoy a brand new room built especially for the hot tub with an attached bathroom. The hot tub is surrounded by two large windows, which was perfect for enjoying the winter scenery by the lake while staying warm.

                                                              The house was very clean and comfortable during our stay. Carole was very responsive any time we had questions and very accommodating to our needs. We really enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back in the summer to truly take advantage of the expansive deck space, grills, and lake front access.
