Perfect multi-family retreat, located on a quiet wooded cul-de-sac in the private Indian Rocks community. The house has been newly remodeled with fun and relaxation in mind! Enjoy the game room, fully equipped with air hockey, foosball, wii setup, and 2 tv's with cable. All year round, you can experience total relaxation by the large outdoor fire pit area, roasting marshmallows and loosing yourself in the embers of the fire. Lake Wallenpaupack is a short three minute drive from the house, where boating, fishing, and water adventures await. Bring your boat and rent one of the community docks (advance reservations required). Don't have a boat? Contact one of the many nearby boat rental or tour facilities in order to experience the third largest lake in Pennsylvania. Don't want to get in the car...walk to the neighborhood pool, approximately two blocks from the house. Grab an easy lunch for the kids at the pool snack bar, let them play on the playground, or use the tennis and basketball amenities. Entertain friends and family in the newly renovated granite kitchen, with gas fireplace for those cold winter nights after skiing and tubing at nearby slopes. Come see why this is one of our family's favorite spots for fun, memories and relaxation!!

About Mike and Maureen Maerten
We are a family of 5 with three young girls who have been coming to Indian Rocks for years at a family member's house. We decided in 2014 to purchase our own place to build memories for our family but with the intention to make it a vacation retreat for others to enjoy as well. Everything we've put into this home including the memory foam beds, quality furniture, and many games were done with comfort and fun in mind.
Mike and Maureen Maerten purchased this House in 2014
Why Mike and Maureen Maerten chose Lake Ariel
We loved the fact that there are three floors each with bedrooms and full baths. The open floor plan, feeling of space (not cramped in any room) and character were all important to us when entertaining family and friends. The location being walking distance to the pool, playground, tennis, basketball and horseshoe pits was a big bonus as well. Other pluses that we thought fit our needs as well include, no carpet except area rugs we added (we have allergies and prefer hardwood and tile), a large open space on the lower level to create a fun game room! We made countless improvements since we purchased the home in December 2014 including an all new kitchen, tons of new lighting, a custom hand crafted bunk room, all the bathrooms were partially remodeled with new vanities, toilets, fixtures and lighting; the exterior was regraded and graveled over for plenty of parking and a large fire pit area. New front load washer and dryer was added and all the furniture is new as of 2015.
What makes this House unique
We love the fact that this property is only a short walk to the pool, playground, tennis, basketball and horseshoe pits. Having the house located on a cul-de-sac with only one other home provides peace of mind for us, considering we have three young children who like to play outside. There is very little vehicle traffic and we can be assured they are safe while playing at the end of the driveway or picking the blueberries from bushes that line our street.

Perfect NYE with the squad, in the perfect place!
We stayed here for NYE 2019 and a few days before. The house was absolutely perfect for our group. There was plenty of space for everyone to spread out and be comfy and also enough to have all 11 of us in one space at a time. The layout of the house is great, we loved the kitchen! The indoor and outdoor fire places were great, the string lights out by the fire pit were beautiful. The speaker system in the house was easy to use and a great bonus. Great location, not too far from some restaurants and grocery stores, even went to Scranton for an afternoon to see the "Welcome to Scranton" sign and to go ice skating. It was a wonderful weekend, thanks Maureen! Thinking about a summer trip :)
Thank you for the wonderful review Stephanie. We love hearing about the fun our guests have during their stay. Please let us know what dates you might be I retested for the summer. The lake is beautiful and there are so many things to do when the weather is warmer.
Christmas in the Poconos
We had a family Christmas gathering in Lake Ariel and it was great. The house layout was perfect with every room having its own heating controls. The beds and bedding was amazing as was the huge fireplace. The house was clean with games and various other supplies. The owners also arranged for a snow flurry Christmas Eve along with lots of Santa’s reindeer thrilling the little ones!
Sounds so magical Deb! I’m so glad we could help your family have a wonderful Christmas. Please come visit us again soon.
Beautiful house and location
When we arrived we fell in love with the house. It felt like a real home away from home. Beautiful living area to relax and watch tv along with an amazing fire pit outside. Althea surrounding area was very peaceful. Overall we would only book with this house for our next little vacation.
This makes me so happy! So glad you loved the house as much as we do. Please come back again!
Clean and nice layout
Good location and excellent property. Three families were quite comfortable.
I would not hesitate to return.
We are so glad you had a nice time!
The property was clean and well-cared for. We felt welcomed and couldn't wait to settle in!
This clean, modernized house was perfect for our vacation! We were able to have both sets of in-laws stay with us, while our kids stayed in the room with the bunk beds. The property was so close to the pool that we walked there most nice days. We enjoyed our nights around the fire pit, where deer stopped by to say hi! My son loved playing air hockey and foosball in the lower level, and we were kept so busy, we never finished our game of chess on the beautiful game table on the third floor. We hardly had the tv on, but the sound bar was able to stream our music, which could be heard throughout the house, thanks to the reliable WiFi. There was a catch and release pond within the development that nearly leapt out of the pool! The property is also not far from fishing on the lake! We'll be back! We really enjoyed our stay!
We are so glad you had a great family vacation and we hope you’ll be back again soon. Thanks for the positive feedback!
Beautiful and comfortable home
The house was beautiful and clean, in a quiet and peaceful setting. It's a short walk to the recreation center where the pool is. The outside areas including front deck, back deck and fire pit area are spacious with lots of seating. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Maureen was a pleasure to talk to and was very helpful and informative. We would definitely stay here again!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Please let us know when you'd like to return.
