Located in the northeastern part of the state's Pocono and Endless mountains, the spring-fed lake boasts superb bass fishing and is surrounded by 100s of acres of public land for hiking, walking, hunting, cross country skiing, or simple viewing and relaxation.

Ideal for couples or small families, the property sleeps 1 to 4 and is easily accessible from I-80 and I-81. It is two hours north by car from Philadelphia and Harrisburg and two hours west of New York City.

The cottage is fully furnished with a queen-sized bed in the bedroom and single beds in the loft. It has a large flat-screen television with DVD player, access to Wi-Fi, and on-site washer and dryer. It has a modern kitchen equipped with gas stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, dishes, silverware, cooking utensils, and other kitchen tools.

Accessible from the township road by a paved private drive, the cottage has a screened-in front porch and open rear flagstone patio complete with Pennsylvania-made cedar furniture.

The grounds and lakefront are landscaped with native and exotic plants. The lakefront has a table and chairs, a fire ring, dock, paddle boat, and kayak available for guests' use. Motorboats and water skiing are also permitted on the lake, subject to certain horsepower and use limits.

Numerous Pocono ski resorts, minor-league hockey and baseball franchises, Mohegan Sun and Mount Airy casinos, local theater, movies, national and regional historic sites, shopping malls, restaurants, white-water rafting, state and local parks, and several amusement parks are within 30- to 60-minute drives.

About Sal Deluca

Our family has spent summers at Lily Lake since the mid-1950s. Each generation has used it in its own way, but the place's natural beauty, fun, and relaxation have remained mostly unchanged through the years. For the last decade, we've decided to make it our full-time home and now would like others to have the opportunity to enjoy a little bit of what we've built our lives around.

Sal Deluca purchased this cottage in 1987

Why Sal Deluca chose Wapwallopen

The Lily Lake Guest House is on a parcel adjacent to our primary residence. As our family has grown, we use for get-togethers and holidays. It's far enough to offer our family and family a bit of seclusion, but close enough that we can easily spend time together.

What makes this cottage unique

We've tried to create a place with many modern conveniences yet one that maintains the popular rustic cottage style of the 1920s. Guests can enjoy heated bathroom floors and Internet access but also bear witness to the passage of time with the simple stone-and-mortar foundation created of rock found on the property, the original yellow pine clapboard siding and Douglas Fir flooring, the open-air patio and screened porch, and the structure's simple yet functional layout.

Beautiful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 5 days at Lily Lake. Cottage was beautiful - you can tell this is a family home, and not just a rental property. Immaculate on the inside and loved the nice touch of professionally laundered towels and bed lines. Felt like a fine hotel. Was exactly what we were looking for: quiet, with easy access to fishing. Owners supplied a boat that we kept tied to the dock and could easily hop into to hit the lake. (And yes, we caught trout.) Sal and Bob are really nice folks and truly care about making your stay as enjoyable as possible. Look forward to renting again next year.

Great spot, loved it

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully appointed sweet cottage in a primo spot. It snowed the day we got there which made it even prettier. The next day the owners had thoughtfully shoveled our car out before we were even awake because we had mentioned possibly going to Elk Mountain to ski. Hiked around the frozen lake with our dog who was in her glory. We were very comfortable and highly recommend (loved the heated floors in the bathroom). Only minor complaint was the Internet connection wasn't great. Sal was super responsive but for some reason it cut out a lot. My husband and I weren't complaining - it meant we had our teenagers attention more than we normally do. Would love to go back in summer. Thanks for a great weekend out of the city.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words, Carole. Glad you had a great time! Only sorry to hear the the internet was spotty. Our Internet Service Provider had an outage that unfortunately coincided with your stay. But we agree that getting your teenagers' attention is priceless these days! Please come see us again in the summer. I think you'll really love being able to relax outside on the porches and by the lake.

Thanksgiving Dinner Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and my best friend stayed here for the Thanksgiving Weekend, and I made a whole turkey, 4 sides and a pumpkin cheese cake here!

The house is clean, spacious and probably really pretty in the summer as you can see the lake right in front of it. Really nice place to stay.

Initially, we had a bit of a problem with getting the house to heat up, but it was probably because we live in Manhattan and are not familiar with central heating system. It was easily fixed the next day when the kind owner came to assist us on Thanksgiving Day.

The only weird thing was that the house didn't have many bowls for cereal. While they had a coffee bean grinder and coffee maker, they did not have a coffee filters (we bought some the next day). They did have a percolator so it came in handy the first morning.

Overall super relaxing stay and warm hospitality. Will recommend this place for anyone looking to relax and enjoy quiet time!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words. We're delighted that Thanksgiving was a success for you. And yes, the cottage is wonderful in the summertime as well. In addition to hiking, fishing, and swimming, it's nice to enjoy the porch and fire pit. I'm so sorry there weren't any coffee filters there for you! It was an oversight on our part, and we thank you for letting us know. As for cereal bowls, there are six or seven there with blue rims. I'm sorry they weren't more apparent. Thanks again for taking the time to write. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a quick weekend getaway and this place was perfect. Very nice house, well maintained and clean. The house is steps away from the very picturesque Lily lake, we fished from the dock and did some hiking around too. It's close enough to some fun things to do in the area as well. Overall I would absolutely recommend this to anyone. The owners were great and we couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks again! We'll surely be back.

Beautiful peaceful piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our wonderful lake side stay. The owners who live on the property were very helpful and accommodating. We appreciated the restaurant suggestions. We really enjoyed dinner at Le Manhattan Bistro in Wilkes-Barre. Looking forward to coming back in the summer.
