You have found the only vacation rental on beautiful Duck Harbor Pond. At 2 miles long and a half mile wide, it is not a 'pond' but a private glacial lake, perfect for any water sport.
Pack your clothes, personal items, and food. We provide most everything else. A detailed list may be requested. We are only 3 hours from NYC and Philadelphia. Lehigh Valley is only 2 hours away.
Enjoy the calmness of the lake in the morning, afternoon activities, and evening sunsets from the rocking chairs on the covered porch. Our resident Blue Herons and Bald Eagles can be seen frequently.
Family fun and enjoyment was the focus of our design. We considered families with special needs by including a handicap ramp and 36 inch doorways on the main floor.
New this year is a 40 inch flat screen in the living room and a 32 inch flat screen in the Master bedroom.
Guests with allergies will do well in this house since there are all wood floors with no carpeting, no pets, and no smoking.
* We are in a rural area and currently only have Verizon cell service. We provide free long distance calling from our land line.
Although we focus on families, this is ideal for couples or any group of 6 or less.

About Elaine Wells
Honest and hard working are words we have heard to describe us. We have shared many adventures in the 43 years we have been married. Although we are both technically 'retired', we are always working on a project. In the fall of 2011, we purchased a run down cottage on Duck Harbor Pond. Over the winter we tore it down and in the spring of 2012 we started building this new log cabin. The design and most of the labor was done by us. We hope you will appreciate our pride in workmanship and love every minute you spend in our cabin.
Elaine Wells purchased this Cabin in 2011
Why Elaine Wells chose Wayne County
We are blessed to be permanent residents in our own log cabin at Duck Harbor Pond. Sharing our piece of 'Paradise' with others in our new vacation rental cabin has been a great pleasure.
What makes this Cabin unique
ECO-Friendly and respect for nature and our environment. The logs and all wood are locally grown and processed. From the lights and windows to the appliances and granite, our choices reflect energy efficiency and organic materials.

Cozy and charming
It was a lovely weekend, the house was great.
I was so sad to receive this 4 star review. It has been my goal to give everyone a great experience. I had several communications with this guest, provided many extras, and personally met with him. After seeing this review, I contacted the guest to ask if there was anything I could have done or improved upon to get 5 stars. I received no response.
Relaxing lakefront getaway
Could not have picked a better place for a long weekend fall lakefront vacation. The cabin was clean and the most beautiful lakefront view and surroundings. We really felt back to nature traveling along the quiet roads and views of surroundings. After a day exploring it was really nice to relax by a fire sitting out by the lake. We will definitely be planning a return trip!
Very relaxing and comfortable cabin!
Had a wonderful time at the cabin, couldn't have been any nicer. Caught several smallmouth bass in under a hour from the dock. Highly recommend and would come back again!
we had a great time for the 2nd straight year, place is perfect for a lake getaway
Thank you, we love when families return.
Very clean and well equipped cabin on an peaceful and lovely lake! Great getaway!
Great cabin in a perfect location to enjoy fishing, sunsets and water activities! A Relaxing getaway and owner Elaine is very accommodating.
The cabin was breathtaking.
Rented cabin for family attending our wedding. The cabin was absolutely beautiful. We couldn't find anything bad to say. My inlaws absolutely loved it. They wished they had more time to spend in it then just the last by weekend. They loved the front porch with the rockers with view of the lake. Would definitely rent cabin again.
