Kathleen Smith purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Kathleen Smith chose Pennsylvania

It's warm and cozy in the winter and refreshingly cool in the summer and just up the street from the lake, we have an outdoor firepit and comfly seating everywhere. You can see the lake from the deck. It's a very relaxing getaway.

What makes this cabin unique

Fresh mountain air that somehow relaxes you almost instantly. Fresh water to swim in at the lake, great fishing.

Interlude in Tranquility at Lake Wallenpaupack

  • 5 of 5

What an extraordinary adventure we shared at our Cozy Cabin! The beautiful nature surroundings and the lovely, amazingly equipped cabin provided all the necessary ingredients for a perfect vacation. My many walks, to satisfy one of my favorite activities, were enhanced by regular deer 🦌 sightings, musical sounds from a variety of birds, scampering chipmunks and busy squirrels, and blue herons, etc. by the Lake. Friendly neighbors, so willing to offer help or give suggestions and recommendations, surprised and pleased us. Being an avid reader, I found the sun room, comfortable couches, and large, private porch perfect accommodations for my reading addiction! Our only complaint is we didn't get to stay long enough as our time was limited this trip. We do hope to return and to enjoy this cabin and lake for an extended getaway! Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your special facilities!

Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

This place was great, quite little get away. Perfect place to chill out and relax. Sitting out by the Lake was beautiful and we enjoyed sitting out by the fire pit at night. Anything you needed was there, it was just awesome.

Cozy, cute cabin

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a long weekend at the cabin in July 2017. The cabin is very cute. There is no air conditioning but the cabin is under trees and has ceiling fans. We were on the lake during the day with temperatures of 80 degrees and the nights were pleasantly cool. We enjoyed cooking on the grill and eating out on the deck. We met a few of the neighbors. Everyone is very friendly. The lake is visible from the deck and a short walk to the dock where you can fish or take a refreshing dip.

We also enjoyed seeing the wildlife. A doe and her two fawns walked right through the property less than 10 ft from where my husband was standing. They seem to be a part of the neighborhood. Not afraid of humans. Overall, I would recommend the Cozy Cabin. It is quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

We had an awesome time here!

  • 5 of 5

The location was excellent. Just a short walk down to the lake. We had everything we needed in the kitchen, loved the fire pit where we made s'mores and had a relaxing evening. Plenty of sleeping accomodations. We would definitely do it again!

Hi! This is the owner, Kathy Smith! In response to the one bad review below........

  • 5 of 5

I didn't get a chance to respond to the one bad review I've received and it's too late for me to do so! So I'm answering to it now. Every once in awhile you get a crazy guest! It happens! That's life! What's funny to me is, I have the emails exchanged between the two of us and I had returned her security deposit on a timely basis, she just didn't check first! My cabin is in the mountains, if you don't want steep roads, don't come to the mountains. I depend on my guests to let me know how the cabin was left for them by the previous renters, I ask everyone to let me know upon arrival. I didn't hear a word about it being left dirty for her until a year later! Too late! And the loft is safe for children! My own sleep up there! I didn't charge her twice to return the itmes she left behind, it was a $6 UPS fee and I even voluntarily sent them to her sisters house at her request. So please don't judge my cabin on one bad review. It's a great cabin, you'll love it.
