About Eric Gerckens
4 Brothers from Westfield, NJ built this house for their families (12 children) in 2005.
Eric Gerckens purchased this House in 2005
Why Eric Gerckens chose Paupack Township
One of the brothers has been coming to this lake since high school, more than 20 years. During a family birthday party, they came up with the idea of owning a vacation property between all the families. Twelve (12) years later, we're still going strong and enjoying every moment we have as a family.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the large lakefront property, and built a custom house to accommodate 4 families. The functionality of the house, allows us to enjoy all activities together without feeling crowded. We chose an open floor plan with enough room for 22people to be eating and enjoying each others company all in once space. We kept the house rustic in design with all cedar ceilings, 8 foot alder doors, alder wood kitchen cabinets, and a beautiful huge stone fireplace as the centerpiece.

Beautiful, clean, and trainquil
My family of 19 members had a reunion here at the property. We stayed for three nights and everyone loved it! The house was beautiful, clean, and spacious. We all felt it gave enough privacy for the individual families (there are seven bathrooms). The two large refrigerators helped a lot since we brought a lot of food with us. We enjoyed boating, fishing and built bonfires. The lake view was gorgeous. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a large space in a beautiful location.
Fabulous Thanksgiving Holiday 2017 at the Gerkens
If there were 100 stars , that would be my rating!! We rented this house with no information but the reviews on the Gerken's website.
This house is beautiful, clean , inviting, gorgeous views but most importantly you can feel the love it was built with. Our family spent Thanksgiving 2017 at the Gerkens and it was the best. We were able to stuff 2 turkeys and make 2 pies at the same time because the kitchen island is so large. The house had everything we needed and a note in the pantry telling us to feel free to help ourselves. Everything was exactly as described and frankly better. Eric and Michael were so kind and helpful in answering my many questions as the vacation approached. I feel like the Gerken's are friends. We only left the house once ....there was so much there to do and it was so relaxing. You will not be disappointed and probably find that the Lakehouse exceeds your expectations. Our family ranged in age from 1 to 65 and plenty of 20 year olds. We loved singing around the firepits, darts, card games and much more. God bless the Gerken family for sharing their lovely home with us.
We recently rented the house for a golf weekend with 18 guys. This house is a great one with plenty of space. It's really nicer than the photos show. We had nothing to complain about at all. The owners were easy to deal with and we will likely be going back.
Family / friends reunion. We've been doing it for 10 years stright, same group!
Stayed in numerous VRBO homes before, but this one was absolutely the best! House was close to the lake, and sat up high, so the view was spectacular (beautiful sunsets). Nine bedrooms accommodated our 20+ guests very nicely. The Gerckens were excellent to deal with, and everything they described / committed to was there. We had a very fine Fall weekend, as a result of this very fine home.
Tremendous House and Location
Our two families recently rented the Gercken's Lake house for a week and we had a tremendous time. Everything about the house is first class, the locations is the best on the lake, and everything you would want is close by. In total 16 of us ranging in age from 6 months to 66 years, thoroughly enjoy all the house and the lake has to offer. We rented a boat, wave runner, and paddle board locally and really enjoyed the dock area, waterskiing, touring the lake, and stopping at the lake side restaurants. The house has everything and the Owners were really great to deal with. Highly recommend the house and we look forward to coming back.
Stupendous from every single angle!!!
Our entire Year-long experience, from the fledgling stages of planning to saying goodbye to the Poconos, was simply astounding. 25 family members from around the country gathered at the Gercken's house to celebrate an amazing woman's journey of 90 years! The entire experience was exceptional. Mike was nothing short of phenomenal to interact with during the planning stages, answering an endless list of questions. Upon arrival, he toured us around the house and offered his cell number in case there was a single thing we needed. The house is gorgeous and well stocked. The 4-day experience has created lasting memories and it would not have been possible without this grand and spectacular house and its owners. Thank you, thank you!
PS....There should and must be a picture of Mike in the dictionary under the phrase, "perfect landlord."
