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.

Lots of fun!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Pocono Fountain House! The kids really enjoyed the loft, hot tub and gaming system. The adults enjoyed listening to the viny. Very quiet location. Shawn was very fast and helpful with responding to my questions. We would love to come back in the summer.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend the weekend here after a substantial snowfall. It was crazy getting there but well worth it. We loved the hot tub and the extensive movie collection.

Wonderful winter get away

  • 5 of 5

This house is a little gem up in the Poconos right on the lake. It was the perfect place to spend a girls weekend away celebrating a birthday! The house was very clean upon arrival had all the appliances that we needed and was pictured as described. The upstairs loft is very spacious you can fit a couple people but it is an open loft so any noise from the kitchen/family room does rise up to the loft. That was not a problem for us because we were just having a girls weekend away and did not mind being in close quartets! I would love to go back in the summer and use the kayaks down in the basement because it is a quick walk to the water! Shawn was a wonderful host and did help with any questions I had and I couldn’t of picked a better spot to spend for a weekend away. I will definitely be back!!
