About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath, Sleeps 8 maximum.

Check out the new lakefront excavation project that improves safety and erosion control. Come enjoy a beautiful mountain cabin on Lake Wallenpaupack. Variable nightly rates with special discount to our premier returning visitors. See notes in Rate Section.

Lakefront cabin on Lake Wallenpaupak in the private community of Sunny Point. Our lakefront vacation cabin commands one of the best locations on the lake. The cabin is a perfect get-a-way in any season. Two large picture windows facing eastward provide an unobstructed lake view. Stroll down a gentle sloping flat stone pathway to the lakeside patio for morning coffee and a beautiful sunrise. When evening rolls around take in the awesome glow of a moon rising above the mountains with your favorite beverage. Schmann's Nature Reserve directly across the cove restricts development meaning an uninhabited, wooded shoreline to mountaintop. Good hiking there too!

So that maximum pleasure is enjoyed, during the summer season 6 to 7 night minimum stay is preferred.

Enjoy swimming, fishing, boating, sailing from our private dock or enjoy the warmth of the summer sun by just sunbathing! Fall foliage is alive with fantastic blends of red, gold, yellow, brown leaves you can view right from the cabin. In winter, snuggle up to the full stone fireplace after a day of ice fishing or snowmobiling. No need to go anywhere, just enjoy being at the lake.

This home is family inherited from my parents Audrey and Bernie (AuBern) and great for families with children and pets. Yes, we are pet friendly! Cabin features two bedrooms with queen beds and a large loft for the kids. The loft has two single beds. Six people can sleep comfortably between both downstairs and loft.

Improvements continue! A 2016 shoreline excavation project repaired the lakeside patio, created a built in fireplace, built 5 inch high steps from Pennsylvania blue stone with hand railing. and flat stone pathway to the cabin.

A new stair case was installed from the first floor to the basement. Accessing the washer/dryer is so much easier without needing to go outside!

A custom bathroom is all rage! Cement trough sink with pour faucet, Italian floor tiles, corian tub surround, and updgraded eco-toilet.

A large area wood deck spans the entire frontside of the cabin. Bar-b-ques, picnics and general entertaining are ideal for guests and friends.

You can tell we love our cabin and know you will too!

About Rick

This is a family heritage cabin acquired in 1964 and it has been THE vacation spot for us and friends. We live in Hawaii and return several times a year to enjoy 'the serenity of a clear blue mountain lake' and change of seasons.

Rick purchased this cabin in 1964

Why Rick chose Sunny Point

Our cabin has been in the family for over five decades. We love the wooded shoreline of the lake. Close to Scranton-Wilkes Barre, New York City, Newark International Airport. The quaint town of Hawley is less than five miles away. The area is a good location for antique shopping, summer fun, fall foliage, and winter wonderland.

What makes this cabin unique

Lake Wallenpaupack is notable for fishing, hunting, and most all water sports. We enjoy our private dock for swimming, boating, and skipping rocks. You can row across the cove to the Schmann's Nature Reserve to hike along the trails. Or boat over to Epply Island for a picnic lunch and exploring. In the fall, the mountainside explode with color!

We had such a great time at the lake house for Thanksgiving weekend. The bedrooms are in the front of the house so they stayed nice and dark while you are trying to sleep but when you wake up and walk into the living area in the morning the entire rest of the house is FULL of natural light from the sun reflecting off the lake, truly breathtaking. We had such a relaxing weekend, cozy nights by the fireplace, big morning breakfasts in the fully stocked kitchen. Our dog stayed with us and really enjoyed the area as well. There are lots of hiking trails very near by and the lake is steps from the back door. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I just returned from our 2nd vacation at Auburn House and it won't be our last. When we arrived the house was impeccably clean. Lake Wallenpaupak is as beautiful as ever and the surroundings are peaceful and serene. The upgrades to the swimming dock, walkway to the Lake and the fire pit have only added to it's beauty and charm. Thank you Rick for another fabulous vacation at your beautiful lakefront home. We're already looking forward to our trip back there next year!

Great home, great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a wonderful comfortable and relaxing home. The proximity to the bait store, ice cream shop and grocery store was just awesome! Not to mention that the lake is a short 20 yards from the back porch. The weather was spectacular and we found this to be a great week vacation for the whole family. The kids swam, fished and just generally enjoyed the outdoor experience altogether. Will absolutely be doing this again...because I'm coming back for the large channel cat that broke my line at the dock!

Relax and Enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully well equipped and clean rental on beautiful lake Wallenpaupack. Updated dock and added fire patio area by the lake were pluses. Linens and all needed bath and beach towels provided save on a lot of packing. Your neighbors are close so don't expected a secluded setting. Weekends are very busy but during the week there is peace and quiet and the lake is less busy. We hope to return next year!

Quiet, Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is super cozy and exactly what you need if you're looking for a quick, quiet getaway. We went during the off season so it was great to be able to sit out by the lake with a glass of wine and the fire going with no one around to disturb you. The house was clean and exactly what we were expecting. They allow dogs which was why we decided on this house. Little did we know, the house is a two minute drive away from a hiking trail! The dogs absolutely loved it! Couldn't have asked for a better weekend at Lake Wallenpaupack!

Great lake house!!

  • 5 of 5

House is extremely well appointed, has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The dock is great and there is a great lakeside fire pit. There was even a boat that we could use. The location is great. Dealing with Rick before, during and after was incredibly easy with very quick replies to any questions!
