Photos and Description of this Wallenpaupauk Lake Estates holiday chalet

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 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 Lake Ariel

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.

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! Clean and cozy, fully stocked kitchen, plenty of space and so peaceful. The surrounding were beautiful and the amenities were such a bonus. We used the canoe on the lake and did some fishing off the public dock which was within walking distance.

We relaxed by the firepit, took in some nature and really enjoyed the hot tub. We cooked on the grill which was a plus and enjoyed watching the collection of movies at night. Great place for couples or families! My daughter has already asked when we could go back :)

Shawn was such a pleasure to deal with from booking to check out!

Can't wait to come back again!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at the Fountain House and it was just as great as our first stay. If you're looking for all the amentities of home but feel as though you are away from everything then this is the place for you. We especially loved the new bathroom upstairs and shower. I cannot express enough how much we love it here and can't wait to come back again!!!

Escape from reality into nature and peace

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time! House was perfect for all 6 of us and our dog! It rained and cloudy for half of the week but we still fished, went to zoo and ate out! Everything is close to home. We can't wait to go back!

Peaceful surroundings with lots to do

  • 5 of 5

Our family of seven stayed here for a week and had plenty of room to sleep, eat, and play games. The house was clean and comfortable, and everything was exactly as described on the website. The owner was quick to respond whenever I had a question about booking or staying at the house. This house is located in a community, but it is semi-secluded because it is surrounded by a pond, woods, and across the street is another private pond. Whether sitting on the deck or down at the fire pit, you have beautiful views of nature. We did some light cooking in the beautiful kitchen, and ate dinner at the local restaurants. We only had to drive 10-20 minutes to eat or do grocery shopping. Our family used the kayaks and canoe almost everyday; on the the hot days we also enjoyed the 2 community swimming pools. We drove 15-20 minutes to a marina on Lake Wallenpaupack to rent a pontoon for half a day. Overall this property is highly recommended.

Beautiful home with plenty of fun close by

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful! We didn't have to pack our car full of items such as chairs, toys, and items to keep the kids occupied because that was all available at the house. We could cook each night on the grill or in the house, so we saved money on eating out. The kayaks that were available for us to use were a great asset during our trip. They saved us having to bring ours.

The community that this house is in provides many things for people to do. Me and the kids played on the beach that is less than a 5 minute walk from the house or the pool that's right up the street while my husband fished. There's also a pool great for little kids and a second beach that's a little drive from the house. At each pool there is a snack stand. The one at Rockledge pool has AWESOME fries (we had the buffalo fries and 3 cheese). We could have eaten dinner here for fairly inexpensively. The Beaver Lake pool has some sugary fried snacks that are must try as well.

Our family of 4 had an amazing vacation. It wouldn't have been the same if it wasn't for this amazing house. Do yourself a favor and book your get away at this house. It would have been the perfect house for just me and my husband just as much as it was for our family.

Thank you for our wonderful vacation! My parents said it was the most relaxing vacation they have had in years! The kids used the kayaks everyday, my dog loved walking to the beach every morning, and my husband and father enjoyed all of the fishing spots. Every day we saw deer and chipmunks! The fountain was so pretty when it was lit up at night. We also enjoyed s'mores by the fire! Thanks again for everything!
