About the Property

Lake View Cottage, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Come enjoy our beautiful 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage with beautiful views of the south end of Lake Wallenpaupack throughout the year. A manageable 100 mile, 2 hour trek from NYC, less than 2 1/2 hours from Philly.
Between the spring and early fall seasons, enjoy the cottage side patio with your group, where you'll cook on the Weber propane grill, enjoy the lake views while dining at the 8’ picnic table, and relax on chaise lounges during the day, and during the evening, roast marshmallows and make s'mores at the fire pit. Enjoy the views, your favorite beverage, and conversation on the covered front porch, furnished with comfortable outdoor furniture. Bring your boat, up to 24’L, and moor it in your own slip located directly across the street, in protected, no wake water. Navigate the Big Lake, 13 miles long, where you'll swim, tube, ski, and fish, or throw out the anchor and enjoy captivating scenery. Enjoy the convenience of the no-wake zone opposite the cottage, about 1.5 miles in length, great for the kayaking or canoeing enthusiast. Please note that two 11.5' Pelican fishing kayaks are on site. These kayaks are not offered as part of the rental, but you may use them for free! (At your own risk) Take a short drive to the beach, or to the outdoor recreational area, where you’ll enjoy the clean, heated, life-guarded outdoor swimming pool and kiddie pool, open between Memorial Day and Labor Day, or play tennis, shoot some hoops, play volleyball and horseshoes, or take a well-deserved break and watch the children as they enjoy the playground. Walk to lake or pond fishing, too!

Winter recreational opportunities abound! The lake freezes hard, followed by snowfall, where you may then enjoy cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and sledding, or drive about 30 minutes to either Camelback or Montage Ski Resorts for downhill skiing and snow tubing, or to Mt. Airy Casino.
Want to cook a hot meal for your group? No worries! Our cottage is equipped with ample pots, pans, dishes, and small appliances, so you won't skip a beat. You may also consider grilling your main course on the convenient Weber propane grill, available for your use year 'round.
You will appreciate the rustic charm of our cottage, highlighted by a natural field stone wood burning fireplace, and also the modern conveniences that you are accustomed to at home: Air conditioning, WIFI, 32” Sony Bravia HDTV with expanded HD channels, HD DVR, DVD. Have peace of mind during your stay knowing that the property owner is environmentally-conscious, subscribing to the delivery of 100% renewable wind energy to this property. Select this property with confidence as the owner enjoys a lifelong connection to it, translating to the fact that this property is continually well cared for and clean. Read about the positive experiences our past guests have had!
Come create your own mountain memories by being our guests, and discover why Lake Wallenpaupack is the premier vacation destination in the Pocono Mountains!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I am married to Judy. We have been married 30 years. I was employed in the public safety sector, 34 years with the same agency. Judy works part-time as a respiratory therapist for the past 33 years with the same hospital, and is a full-time mother and wife. Mark enjoys being with the girls, at the Lake, especially when on the family boat, and also coaching for Special Olympics. Judy enjoys yoga, reading and being a mom. Gretchen likes music, dancing, basketball, yoga, walking, swimming, and tubing on the Lake. .

Why the Owner Chose Lake Ariel, PA, USA:
My parents bought this cottage in the mid 1960's, when I was 5 years old. I have many fond memories of our cottage and the Lake. My parents worked very hard to provide our family a vacation home to enjoy and be proud of. I always knew that it was important to keep the Lake in my life as I grew older. I fulfilled my dream of staying firmly connected to the Lake, and bought the cottage from my siblings in 2010. I am grateful for the compromise by my wife and daughter, as owning a second home comes with sacrifices. We have made many upgrades to the cottage, and I enjoy reading about the great experiences our renters have had.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The location of the cottage is wonderful. There is convenience to the lake with the added benefit of accessibility to the swimming pool, tennis courts, and playground. There are also pleasant views of the lake, especially after the leaves fall. Our cottage offers a blend of rustic charm with the modern conveniences of Wifi, HDTV, AC, and free long distance. The property is enjoyed and maintained by the owner. The property owners are hands-on, and actually alternate cleanings with a cleaning woman, not a service, to assure that the property is cleaned to a level you would expect. The owner's reliability and life-long connection to this property translate into a commitment to the property that will assure satisfaction with your rental experience! Owner actually pays a higher electric rate and subscribes to a 100% renewable electric service provider. Electric supply to this property compliments of 100% wind energy!
