Property description

This fully modern cabin sits on a small hill along the shore of Lily Lake in Conyngham Township. Located in the northeastern part of the state's Pocono and Endless mountains, the spring-fed lake boasts superb bass fishing and is surrounded by 100s of acres of public land for hiking, walking, hunting, cross country skiing, or simple viewing and relaxation.

Ideal for couples or small families, the property sleeps 1 to 4 and is easily accessible from I-80 and I-81. It is two hours north by car from Philadelphia and Harrisburg and two hours west of New York City.

The cottage is fully furnished with a queen-sized bed in the bedroom and single beds in the loft. It has a large flat-screen television with DVD player, access to Wi-Fi, and on-site washer and dryer. It has a modern kitchen equipped with gas stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, and other kitchen tools. Central air conditioning and heating ensure a comfortable interior in all seasons.

Accessible from the township road by a paved private drive, the cottage has a screened-in front porch and open rear flagstone patio complete with Pennsylvania-made cedar furniture.

The grounds and lakefront are landscaped with native and exotic plants. The lakefront has a table and chairs, a fire ring, dock, paddle boat, and kayak available for guests' use. Motorboats and water skiing are also permitted on the lake, subject to certain horsepower and use limits.

Numerous Pocono ski resorts, minor-league hockey and baseball franchises, Mohegan Sun and Mount Airy casinos, local theater, movies, national and regional historic sites, shopping malls, restaurants, white-water rafting, state and local parks, and several amusement parks are within 30- to 60-minute drives.

With advance notice, guests also have the option during their stay of ordering one or more three-course meals, featuring local and seasonal ingredients, prepared and served on the property. A number of options are available. Arrangements can also be made for stocking the pantry with your grocery list. Please inquire for details.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1987

About: Our family has spent summers at Lily Lake since the mid-1950s. Each generation has used it in its own way, but the place's natural beauty, fun, and relaxation have remained mostly unchanged through the years. For the last decade, we've decided to make it our full-time home and now would like others to have the opportunity to enjoy a little bit of what we've built our lives around.

Why Wapwallopen, PA, USA:
The Lily Lake Guest House is on a parcel adjacent to our primary residence. As our family has grown, we use for get-togethers and holidays. It's far enough to offer our family and family a bit of seclusion, but close enough that we can easily spend time together.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We've tried to create a place with many modern conveniences yet one that maintains the popular rustic cottage style of the 1920s. Guests can enjoy heated bathroom floors and Internet access but also bear witness to the passage of time with the simple stone-and-mortar foundation created of rock found on the property, the original yellow pine clapboard siding and Douglas Fir flooring, the open-air patio and screened porch, and the structure's simple yet functional layout.
