About the property

Private Wooded Retreat with Rustic Decor and Fully Renovated Amenities Awaits!!

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.

The property was clean and well-cared for. We felt welcomed and couldn't wait to settle in!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Beautiful and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

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!

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! Beautiful house, very cozy! Owners could not have been nicer or more accommodating! 4/5 b/c hot water ran out quickly after only 2 showers and Wi-Fi kept dropping. Beds are the most comfortable beds we've ever slept in! Would definitely rent again!

Very clean, cozy and value for money,

  • 5 of 5

We are a big group, around 12 including 4 kids. It was a little tight for the group but the kids loved it. The house was very clean, well maintained and had all we wanted.

In simple words, we all planned a 2 night stay but then extended to three nights just because the way the house was maintained, facilities, and the immediate response/attention by Maureen. She made sure we have everything at home and i was getting immediate response. House had EVERYTHING. You have to go with your dress and make your food. Awesome house and camp fire was nicely lighted. Very clean and neat house. Custom bunk bed room, kids enjoyed a lot. All the kids wanted to extend the stay, because they liked the house.

We had a very fun time and we all already planned for one more stay either in spring or summer.

Thanks Maureen for all your help which made our stay a 'Happy Moment' to cherish.
