Lovely 5 Bedroom 3 Bath in Premier Lakefront Community

Bedrooms 5
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom, Sleeps 12

Located in the premier lakefront community of Wallenpaupack Lake Estates, this 5 bedroom (only 4 pictured but there are 5, the Masterbedroom didn't get a photo), 3 full bath home has received a renovation most mountain homes could only dream of. Virtually everything is new last year. Not just the new paint on the walls and new hardwood and tile floors. We went far above and beyond that with:

- Newer furniture and beds (aren’t new beds the best?!)

- Newer big screen TV’s (have you tried to watch TV recently on an old TV?)

- Newer and expanded kitchen (enough room for 3-4 people to work in)

- Newer EVERYTHING in the kitchen – flatware, dishes, tools, pots and pans, etc. (because eating on brand new shiny things is way better than the alternative!)

- Newer Central Air and Central Heat system installed. All new ductwork is also 100% new

Our home has been designed and decorated to encourage family time and ensure your comfort in every way. The dining room area comfortably seats 12 people. The home has two completely different living rooms (each on it’s own floor) so when it’s time for some privacy, you can send the kids downstairs and the others can enjoy a movie in upper level living room from our extensive DVD collection of newer movies. Our max occupancy is 12. For us, that means very comfortably. We have two bedrooms with king beds, two bedrooms with queen beds and one kids bunk room with two bunk bed sets, all newly decorated. Although the cool Pocono Mountains don't always require it, note that we do have new central air conditioning which was recently installed. Note that we do charge a small fee for it's use due to the high cost of electricity and cost to install and maintain. Let us know if you want the A/C enabled for your stay. If you have a boat, feel free to bring it along. Even larger boats and trailers can be parked in the driveway safely along with your cars. When it's time to enjoy your boat, there is a private boat launch just 2-3 minutes from your front door. Note that we do not have a dock for you but the community does have a private boat launch you're able to use.

We do not provide linens for the beds or towels, make sure to bring your own.

The house is well located in the WLE community, only a 2 minute drive to Lake Wallenpaupack and all the amenities you can imagine. There is so much to do in our lakeside community, you won’t know what to do first! You can choose to swim in the large indoor pool or two outdoor pools with lifeguards. You may choose to take it easy and relax in one of the 2 saunas or work out at the modern fitness facility. Maybe you’re feeling energetic and want to enjoy any of the many basketball and tennis courts. If you’re missing the shore, you can lounge on the private beach nestled on one of two private lakes (plus, there’s Lake Wallenpaupack, the largest lake in Eastern PA). If you're feeling lucky, the magnificent Mount Airy Casino and Resort is only a short 25 minute drive.

We are not a corporate real estate rental company. We are a family that bought this house so that our friends and us can enjoy it. It brings everyone so much joy we just can’t keep it to ourselves. We welcome you to relax in the tranquil Pocono Mountains and find the rejuvenation and stress release our home will provide you.

Lovely 5 Bedroom 3 Bath in Premier Lakefront Community
average rating of 4.55 based on 20 reviews

Our 3 family had a great time there.

  • 4 of 5

First impression was that the property was more rustic than we thought but the bottom line is that everything works as it should and the location had a lot to offer for the long weekend. The owner will help with any issues you made have.

Very relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend at this home! Our 12 person group had plenty of room to relax. There was plenty of kitchen ware and it was in very good condition. The open layout of the kitchen/living room area provided a great space for our group to relax.

A perfect family getaway!

  • 4 of 5


We spent a great week at your home! Very relaxing setting and the house had everything we could want. The lake community had wonderful facilities and we enjoyed fishing, swimming (both in the lakes and the pool), kayaking (we used our own inflatables) and even a little family volleyball. Even though we had quite a bit of rain the first couple of days, we just enjoyed being in the house together and playing games.

Highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended! This home and community comes exactly as advertised. We were very happy with the spacious, welcoming, and comfortable family spaces as well as 5 bedrooms to sleep us all easily. With plenty of room to gather 3 generations of us, 14 all together, from 5 mo. old to 60 years old, or to split off into smaller groups, this home had room and amenities to accommodate. Two flat screens, Netflix, a delightfully eclectic and well-chosen DVD collection, games, couches, etc. We spent as much time in the wonderfully designed open kitchen/living room concept space as we did anything else, playing games, relaxing, and chatting. The community has two lovely pools, boating, lake swimming, and playgrounds for little ones, as well. Again - just as advertised. The owner's left a binder with directions, local menus, and many pamphlets of things to do locally. The home was clean, kitchen well stocked with pots, pans, and with 3 full baths no one ever had to wait to use a bathroom. This feels less like a rental, than being a guest in someone's nice home.

Fair Not fabulous

  • 2 of 5

Arriving at this home we were so excited and expectant. Our first impression was that the home is dark. It's in the woods but the lighting does not make up for it. In fact not all the light bulbs worked.

In my assigned bedroom the grand kids were laughing because the mattress was all slanted to one side and there was a log under the one side to improve the slant, I guess. My daughter's mattress cover had a large stain and she felt the need to wash it.

There was no instructions on how to operate the TV's. One never worked the whole week and we were told the cable wire was in the wrong place like we should have know that.We were three woman with out technical skills. The upstairs TV finally worked after we received special instructions by phone on how to reload the system after a storm.

I cleaned out the fridge as it had fish juice on the bottom that smelled bad. The deck lacked care as an ash tray was filled with butts and the grill was dirty with old chicken scraps.

To the positive the kitchen was very nice and well stocked. The living room was comfortable and the dining table large. We had a good time out doors as the community is wonderful and the amenities more enjoyable than they sound. We loved both beaches and the dock and grassy banks on Lake Wallenpaupack.There were deer everywhere and we enjoyed all the wild life,

The owners can easily make the improvements to make this a perfectly fine place to stay, especially for a larger group as there are five bedrooms.
