Overview

About the property

3 Br (4 sleeping areas) 2 Ba Sleeps up to 8-9

Beautiful chalet-style vacation home with spectacular views, fireplace and hot tub in a community with two outdoor pools and one indoor pool; it is located in the Wallenpaupack Lake area in beautiful Lake Ariel, PA which is about 2 hours from New York City. Unlike other lake fronts which place you up hills and long walking distances to the lake, we are Right On a pond...you will wake up and look out your windows to beautiful close-up views of the fountain in the pond. The door is literally steps to the pond and not down steep hills either! We accept Book It Now options through the Homeaway site.

Renter Requirements: Renters must be 30 years of age or older and we will require photocopies of drivers licenses to ensure compliance with this rule. Families with children are the only exceptions to this rule. There is NO smoking in the house. NO CATS are allowed, EVER.

House: We also have a massive movie library with lots of kids movies that we update frequently (perfect for a night with a roaring fire). We have Roku in every room with access to Netflix, Hulu+, HBO, Showtime, and many other channels. We also have an XBOX 360 upstairs in the loft and a retro video game system downstairs with many titles from Nintendo, Genesis, Super Nintendo, Arcade, etc...

Community: For summer renters, there are two outdoor pools....There is a nice lodge at the nearby pool which offers games for kids & teens. There are tennis courts at this pool area which must be reserved in advance at the main office. There is also an indoor pool which is about 5 minutes drive and there is schedule of times that it is open. All community amenities require badges which we will provide to renters.Fishing: there is ample opportunity to do so and the fishing is great in all three lakes (Lake Wallenpaupack is the BIG lake, and the two smaller lakes in our community are called Deer Lake & Beaver Lake, which are both NON-power-boating lakes). If you wish to fish, you MUST get fishing licenses to do so (adults). It is a simple process and it is very inexpensive, but it could cost a lot of money if you fail to have one and get caught fishing without it! Please contact owner for website where you can purchase your fishing license.

Children may only fish with a licensed adult present

About Shawn Abbott

Hi - This is our first property and we're so excited to share it with some great people! The previous owners just renovated the house, putting in a new kitchen and updating the bathrooms. Entire interior and exterior of house has just been painted.

Shawn Abbott purchased this chalet in 2014

Why Shawn Abbott chose Wallenpaupauk Lake Estates

We traveled to the area and absolutely fell in love with the community. We're excited to make some great memories with our family here and hope that you will do the same.

What makes this chalet unique

The fountain (in season)! The sounds and the view are incredibly relaxing. Also, the property is a short walk to the community outdoor pool (with snack bar) as well as the community beach on Deer Lake.

Extremely clean and well stocked with all necessary essentials and than some.

  • 5 of 5

The house was so nice, maintained beautifully. Kitchen was wonderfully equipped! The property is stunningly beautiful and serene. We had a blast sat at firepit both nights of our stay and it was heaven. Only suggestion for future consideration is steps down to firepit area or some walkway lighting, but certainly didn’t deter us from using the area. Plenty of wood and chairs to sit on.

I have to say the pictures did not do the home justice. Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO and I was nervous but the owner of the property Shawn was so easy to work with. I was completely impressed by the welcome email with detailed instructions of everything you would need to know about the house. The kitchen had everything we needed. Beautiful home.

This is the second year in a row that we stayed here and loved it. The home is cozy and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5

We had everything we needed in the home or within easy access. Our grandkids loved Deer lake and the kayaks. Our family is growing and sadly we may have outgrown this lovely place to stay. The owners are wonderful to work with and very responsive. I would recommend this for a couple of any age or a young family. Perfect place for everyone.

The property was everything we were looking for.

We would definitely return. The house was as advertised, and the owner was very responsive to all questions prior to our arrival. I would recommend the house to others. The location was great.

Absolutely loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 (and 2 dogs) loved it here. Being first time Pocono house renters, we were a little nervous about what to expect. The pictures on VRBO are nice but sometimes pictures can be deceiving. We wondered if it would be too small or musty or old. The moment we walked into the house, our fears were instantly allayed. The house was clean, no must or dust. My kids took a quick tour of the place and were in the hot tub about 15 minutes after we arrived.

The Abbott's have done a great job updating the house...the bathrooms were nice, the kitchen was solid with everything you'd need and the entertainment options were excellent. The hot tub was well maintained and the firewood pile was enormous.

The location of the house is perfect. It's pretty well secluded with lots of privacy especially when sitting on the back deck. We ate almost all our meals on the deck and it was incredibly peaceful. The kayaks and canoe were also a great touch.

Coming from suburbia NJ where everyone goes "down the shore", this was a terrific alternative. You could do something different every day: kayaking, canoeing, pontoon boat rental (20 minutes away by car), and lots of awesome hiking.

Don't bother spending hours and hours looking for a house on VRBO, just rent this one!
