Private Wooded Retreat with Rustic Decor and Fully Renovated Amenities Awaits!!
Mike and Maureen Maerten
About Mike and Maureen Maerten
We are a family of 5 with three young girls who have been coming to Indian Rocks for years at a family member's house. We decided in 2014 to purchase our own place to build memories for our family but with the intention to make it a vacation retreat for others to enjoy as well. Everything we've put into this home including the memory foam beds, quality furniture, and many games were done with comfort and fun in mind.
Mike and Maureen Maerten purchased this House in 2014
Why Mike and Maureen Maerten chose Lake Ariel
We loved the fact that there are three floors each with bedrooms and full baths. The open floor plan, feeling of space (not cramped in any room) and character were all important to us when entertaining family and friends. The location being walking distance to the pool, playground, tennis, basketball and horseshoe pits was a big bonus as well. Other pluses that we thought fit our needs as well include, no carpet except area rugs we added (we have allergies and prefer hardwood and tile), a large open space on the lower level to create a fun game room! We made countless improvements since we purchased the home in December 2014 including an all new kitchen, tons of new lighting, a custom hand crafted bunk room, all the bathrooms were partially remodeled with new vanities, toilets, fixtures and lighting; the exterior was regraded and graveled over for plenty of parking and a large fire pit area. New front load washer and dryer was added and all the furniture is new as of 2015.
What makes this House unique
We love the fact that this property is only a short walk to the pool, playground, tennis, basketball and horseshoe pits. Having the house located on a cul-de-sac with only one other home provides peace of mind for us, considering we have three young children who like to play outside. There is very little vehicle traffic and we can be assured they are safe while playing at the end of the driveway or picking the blueberries from bushes that line our street.

Paradise at the Lake!
We loved this house! We had 6 adults and 5 children and there was enough room for us to be together, as well as have some private space too! It was immaculate, the fire pit was used almost every night... only reason we skipped one night was due to rain... kids loved the bunk room, game room and they were mesmerized by the tame deer in the yard! Walked to pool and playground! Spent a glorious day on a boat! We will definitely be back and the owners responded quickly to needs and questions! Would definitely recommend to friends and family for a relaxing getaway week or weekend!!!
We are so happy you enjoyed the house and had a great vacation. Please come back and visit again soon!!
The good life at Lake Wallenpaupack
The pictures of the house online are very nice, but they really do not do it justice. It is a gem, with plenty of room for all of us (5 adults, 4 kids). Nice gas bbq grill, large deck with plenty of seating and a nice firepit for making S'mores! Having a really nice washer and dryer onsite is a real plus, especially with kids around. It is located within walking distance of the community pool complex, playground, tennis courts and basketball court. There is a nice beach on the lake very close-by where we all went swimming and kayaking. We rented a pontoon boat and did tubing on the lake as well. Plenty of fun activities nearby for the kids (Claws & Paws was amazing, Costa's Fun Park was a blast!) Its a beautiful wooded area with loads of friendly deer who come by to visit very often!! The owners, Maureen & Mike, were a breeze to deal with. We felt very safe and comfortable throughout our stay. Can't say enough good things about this location. It is terrific.
Thank you so much for your feedback and compliments. We can’t wait for you to come visit again!!
Great Family Rental
Great family home with easy access to all that Lake Wallenpaupack has to offer. Mike and Maureen were extremely helpful and responsive to questions. The kids has a great week and enjoyed the bonus of air hockey and foosball in the basement.
We are so glad you enjoyed our house and your stay at the lake. Please visit again!
Great Family Fun!!
Beautiful home with all the amenities in a great location....from sitting around the fire pit roasting marshmallows or the game room with air hockey and video games to the loft with fun board games for the family to enjoy and don’t forget the community pool, tennis courts, playground and boating on the lake. The house has it all for families with young kids to teens.
Great Vacation House
My family has a reunion every year over the 4th of July. We come from Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, New Jersey, California and Florida. The house is in a nice location. Close to the pool, beach and nature. It's perfect for families with little ones and those adult groups. The kitchen and baths are updated. The house is very comfortable. It was a terrific week. Thank you
We were so happy to have you and so pleased you will be coming again! Thank you!
Great place for family/friends getaway
Everything was as described and we greatly enjoyed our stay. The kids loved the pool and we also rented a boat to spend the day at the lake. Will come back for sure.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We’d love to have you back!
