My Tranquil Getaway is the perfect place to end your day in a Comfortable Home, Wood burning Stove, That sleeps 6-8 .

WHY PAY $$$$ for 1 room in a local hotel?
My Tranquil Getaway has so much more...

Our home is fully equipped with kitchen tools, pots, pans, dishware, crock-pot everything you could need to cook a feast or make tea and toast. We have binoculars and a pair of walkie talkies with 5-8 mile range. We have some games like chess, checkers, uno, tick tac toe, cards, brain teazers etc.

You don't have to pack the pillows, blankets, sheets, hair dryers, or grilling tools.

Our beds are so comfy you wont' want to get out of them... but there is a lot to do so let's get packing!

What you do have to pack are your Toys, Golf Clubs, Bikes, Boats, Jet Skis, Snow Skis, Snow –mobiles...get the idea!

Your clothes are a good idea - but Walmart is open 24 hours and twice I went on vacation and left my suitcase home trying to fit everyone else’s stuff in the car. The kids could be a good idea unless your running away, but friends and family are always a good choice in my book.

We have over 24 bottles of spices there so you might want to bring your favorites like some grilling rubs, yum yum.

You might want to bring some of your favorite books, CD's, DVD's or videos just in case ... because my library is not that big.

You have to bring the laptop because no one leaves home without it & we do have WIFII. Don't forget the camcorder, camera, maybe floater rafts for the lake, sunscreen, n deodorant well of course you need soap, shampoo & conditioner but you get samples of our home made soaps just in case...

Consider MTG for your family reunion or maybe Birthday Party. Our peaceful 3 bedroom home is close to skiing, boating, golfing and just a short walk to Lake Wallenpaupack & we have plenty of parking

MTG is newly renovated, has hardwood floors, a Beautiful wrap around deck, 2 grills,plenty of seating inside - outside- & on screened in porch with ceiling fan. We have a chimnea for cooler nights, deer feed bucket and so much more...

Must be 25 OR Older for Rentals

Landlord is very pleasant, the home well kept, clean, warm in the winter, all appliances work well and the home is robustly accessorized. EZ check-in, quiet, found wood for the stove and kindling on hand (delightful). Vast state lands offer excellent outdoor experiences: hunt, fish, hike, bike or just a lost weekend It's all good here.

We have stayed at My Tranquil Getaway - Lake Wallenpaupack, Pa for the past 2 years for our guys weekend. There is 8 guys staying in the house that has everything you need. We spend most of our time on the screened in back porch playing games, having a great time. The house is always clean and neat, with plent of room for all 8 of us. We are minutes from the Lake and about 15 minutes from a golf course. We buy all our food and cook it on the good size propane grill or in the full sized kitchen. We are about to head back to the My Tranquil Getaway - Lake Wallenpaupack, Pa in august for our 3rd straight year. This has been a hassle free place for us guys to get together and can't see us changing any time soon.

Tranquill says it all

July 15, 2012

3 couples stayed at My Tranquil Getaway for a weekend away from our kids ! This home had all that we could ask for ! All amenities were included we just had to bring ourselves and whatever we wanted to drink or eat. The name of the unit is very appropriate. The area was very tranquil especially sitting in front of the chiminea on the deck or in the screened in porch away from the insects! We only had one incident with a nest of bees in one of the woodstacks. Since we were only there for the weekend we just avoided them, but when I told Jennifer about it she took care of it right away! We have rented a number of homes at the lake over the years. Its not right on the lake but this was one of the most tranquil and central to both ends of the lake and convenient to boat rentals at the nearby marina. And you cant beat the price ! We will be back in the future and I recommend this place to anyone looking for Their Tranquil Getaway !

I stayed here with a group of friends during a summer weekend. We were looking for a place to just relax, catch up and grill as well as have easy access to Lake Wallenpaupack. This place met and exceeded all our expectations. The outdoor deck (which includes a screened in porch) was perfect. Having the chiminea on the deck was a big plus. I love to camp and often like to sit out by the campfire with a tent, but it's also nice to have the amenities of a vacation home. This gave us the campfire feel with the convenience of a deck, a grill, a fridge and nice beds to sleep in at the end of the night. It was so nice to just sit on the deck and catch up with friends that I don't get to see very often. We also were within close proximity to the lake so we could go jet skiing and enjoy the surrounding areas during the day. Because we weren't on the lake, we also didn't have any bugs - which was a huge plus. We also loved seeing the deer in our front yard throughout the day and night. Playing horseshoes was a lot of fun. And the house itself was great. Good showers, comfortable beds, nice kitchen with all of the pots, pans, plates and seasoning that we needed. I highly recommend this place!

Great Weekend Getaway

This rental property was perfect for our family vacation for seven people. The space is just as described and the house is filled with amenities, towels and is very organized. The enclosed porch was our favorite area, sitting out there with a morning cup of coffee was just perfect. The neighbors are very helpful. The house also comes with a Roku box which made for easy entertainment with Netflix or Pandora. Overall this was a great place to stay, with a short drive to the Lake and Promise State Park. Warm cozy and pet friendly!

The house was beautiful and equipped with all the necessities needed. Jennifer was very helpful and was available when anything came up. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who just wants to get away with friends or family to kick back and relax. Thanks again!!!

I grew up in PA when I was a kid, Always had a great time on lakes and at the gap. We never ventured to this part of PA before. Can’t believe how much fun we had, Lake Wallenpaupack is HUGE. We enjoyed the 2 wineries Antler Ridge, & Maiolatesi. The restaurants were fantastic but your home was the best!

Dear Jen
Thanks for accommodating us last minute, Sorry for the family that had to cancel last minute.

We had a great time fishing this week, hiking and boating. Your place was everything you said it was. The guys had a great time. We might do a couples thing with the ladies next time… or maybe just keep this place for a man cave. We enjoyed your spices when we grilled. And We enjoyed the BBQ Pit, Johns was great on Sunday, and especially Back Draft [well it’s like home for us],

Thanks for the Gift Certificates and the Firemen’s Discount. We appreciated it.

Jen your house is so cute. Great that you had the deer feed they came by twice a day that we know of. We cooked on the grill and at the Ledgedale BBQ Pit, Cuckoos Nest & RainTree [ on the way home] all restaurants were awesome. Loved the crab cakes at the raintree. We should have stayed for a week, next time definitely. I will recommend your place to my friends and co workers.

My Notes:
The Peabody family ran out of propane their first night at 6:53 pm. A New tank was installed at 7:18pm they were grilling.
I do my best to make everyone happy… It Happens, So now there is a spare tank by the grill. The key is on the house key chain.

Aug 4-7, 2011
Jen thanks again for another year at your house, we had a blast – horseshoes - cards - grilling. Thanks for the Gift Certificate, but we didn’t use it ,, much food & Drink at the house.
Oh and thanks for the wasp nest too outside, we found the spray in the closet and zapped them…no worries

Well it’s me , the home owner – I need some of My Tranquil Getaway for myself…
I want to thank everyone who has stayed at my house. Thank you for keeping my home clean & everything in order when you departed. It made it so much easier for the cleaning crew and not one person was delayed in checking in.
I am so grateful that you all had a wonderful time, and I also want to thank you for the wonderful comments. It was my pleasure to have you stay at my tranquil getaway. This is the first year I allowed pets to vacation and I will gladly do it again.
I am also happy that everyone enjoyed their restaurant gift certificates, everyone enjoyed their meals and the service they received. With the exception of the one restaurant that no longer honored the certificate. I thank you sue & kim for allowing me to Accommodate you with a gift certificate at home to your favorite place. And thanks for swapping out the empty propane tank. To avoid that problem I have installed a gas gage on the propane tank so that the cleaning crew can check it to see if it needs refilling.
THANK YOU ALL so much for choosing to stay at My Tranquil Getaway…Blessings to each and every one of you.

Dear Jen,

Thanks again we enjoyed the slopes in the winter and now the lake and the beach in the summer. Went water skiing for the first time. I think the water hurts more than the snow when you land on your butt.

Me and Tony enjoyed the chimnea and grilling, my family had a great time to.
I am telling all my friends about this place, but save room for me. Loved the cuckoos nest restaurant.

Week 1
DearJ en , I can’t agree more with all the others who have visited your home! We have never stayed in such a clean and well stocked home. Our boat is docked at Ledgedale, very easy access. We have had our share of company this past week, some family and friends. My husband and I needed to unwind desperately and this was the perfect place.

Boating, tubing, wake boarding and swimming were just some of what we did. The fireworks on the water were the best. Now that it is just the two of us… I can’t wait to see what the next week brings…

Week 2
How this week was truly the best time I have spent with my husband – alone in a very long time. With so much to do, the time passed too quickly! The Boat House & Earhardt's were wonderful places to eat.

If I know of anyone who needs r&r, I will send them your way!
Thank you for opening up your home to us, it truly has been a peaceful, wonderful time!

I stayed here with a group of friends during a summer weekend. We were looking for a place to just relax, catch up and grill as well as have easy access to Lake Wallenpaupack. This place met and exceeded all our expectations. The outdoor deck (which includes a screened in porch) was perfect. Having the chiminea on the deck was a big plus. I love to camp and often like to sit out by the campfire with a tent, but it's also nice to have the amenities of a vacation home. This gave us the campfire feel with the convenience of a deck, a grill, a fridge and nice beds to sleep in at the end of the night. It was so nice to just sit on the deck and catch up with friends that I don't get to see very often. We also were within close proximity to the lake so we could go jet skiing and enjoy the surrounding areas during the day.

We had a perfect weekend- what a beautiful house. We especially loved the patio for star watching and the screened in section for dinner and morning coffee. Didn't use the gift certificates because we ate in but we are at the lake every weekend so they will definitely get put to use. Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful home. We will certainly be back. Thank you again for everything.

HOT DONUTS - Clear Sky - Chimnea 6/3/2011

Jennifer, we loved the house it is so cozy, warm, and inviting. Your house is very clean and well equipped We had so much fun, and enjoyed your deer family that visited us a few times. You have the coolest ice machine….I timed it because I did not believe it makes ice in 7 minutes… but it did. And we enjoyed your donut maker at night with coffee on the deck and a fire in the chimney-ya Thanks again we will be back.

MY Tranquil Getaway A Perfect Name 5/20/2011

Jennifer, we had the most wonder week plus at my tranquil getaway….what a perfect name for a perfect place . We had no problem getting our boat in and out of the water. Next time I think we will use the boat rental place your recommended. But it was a boat slip rental or stay the extra 3 days… we needed the extra 3 days. I did not want to come home. We have rented several homes over the past several years up here… I must say yours was my favorite , I am sold I will look no further. Thanks again for a wonderful experience.

Mother's Day to REMEMBER 5/6/2011

Jen thank you for the recommendations for mother's day brunch… my mother had a wonderful weekend, and so did I. She was unsure about wanting to go away for mother's day, she whined and complained but when we got here she was so happy, it was good to see her smile again. She was like little kid when ever the deer came by. She even named them all. Thanks again. I pray we can do this next year and the year after.

Your place is amazing and very quiet, well except when we were there. I am about to post the pics of the house on FB, and I would highly recommend it to my friends and family. Also, the horseshoe pits were a nice addition.

I hope next year that you have a weekend that we can have; all the guys loved it.

Thanks again

The kids just love seeing all the deer every day.You could not have picked a better name...My Tranquil Getaway is what we had.

Thanks for allowing us to vacation in your home,

I would like to tell you that we had a wonderful time enjoying your beautiful vacation home. My and my fiance's parents were so charmed by it they didn't want to leave. This weekend was just too short, wish we could stay longer.

We spend a lot of time relaxing on the deck, catching some sun and enjoying fresh air outside. Our dads used the charcoal grill to make bbq and our moms enjoyed a great variety of kitchen utensils and spices to cook dinners. We ran out of the aluminum foil and salt and we've replaced these items. I personally loved the cozy atmosphere of the house, loved the decor of all bedrooms and especially the living room. I imagine how great it is to sit by the fireplace in late Fall or Winter time on the couches with family and friends, drinking hot cocoa. Maybe it's going to be our next family vacation at My Tranquil Getaway!

The only problem we encountered was a leaking fridge. Everything else was in excellent working condition.

We would like to thank you for your service and personal attention!

Our little vacation at this home was great we wish we could have stayed longer. It was very relaxing and the house has plenty of space for our combined family of 8 and it was nice to have 2 bathrooms to. Our friends visited for the day and we had a total of 16 people with plenty of seating without getting in each others way, plus nobody had to do the car shuffle because plenty of parking.

It was beautiful house, a great escape from city life and much better than going to the bigger noisier resorts. We saw and fed the deer, bbq and enjoyed the scenic area on our bicycles

We are so glad you had that cancellation and hope that next we will be able to come to the house again and for a full week.

This was a great vacation! The house was extremely comfortable, very clean, fantastic deck and the nature around the house was so peaceful, the deer they came right up to us.

This was so much better than the last place we rented. Check in was easy, we didn't have to bring towels and linens this time, plus you had plenty of spices for cooking, and the crock pot is a great idea to have. We didn't have to run to the store to buy firewood because you had some there for us.

I would gladly recommend this house if you are looking for a great time and a relaxing atmosphere. Thanks Jennifer for allowing us to use your home and for the little extras that you had readily available. We will see you again next year, maybe even sooner. I am hoping some of my friends will be coming up. I am making my referral list now.

Dear Jennifer,
We had a great time up at the house. You weren't kidding when you said you have plenty of parking, we had plenty of room with 3 suv's and 2 trailers for the boat, bikes and jet skis. House was great and so was the weather. Your deck is a great place to relax at the end of a full day of activity's.

See ya,

Hi Jennifer,

Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us for the weekend. We had a great stay! I will definitely recommend you to my friends and keep this place in mind for future stays in the Poconos.

Thank you again.

Palisades Park, NJ

I rented the house with a few of my friends for a couples weekend we had so much fun. We made smores outside in the chimnia at night. I love that you had a crock pot because we made meals while we were out shopping, and playing miniature golf. Claws and Paws was a nice zoo and I cant believe they have a drive in movie theater in Scranton. I havn't been to one of those since I was little and my fiends never been to one before. We will be back again we have to all get a week off at the same time.

I really enjoyed Thanksgiving at the House. It was a great family reunion. I hope you do it again this year. I am so relaxed whenever I come up there. It seems like the only place I can clear my mind.

I want you to know what a great time we had up at your house. The bedrooms are like a B&B. The boys enjoyed the Lake and jet skied when ever it wasn't raining....wish we had better weather when we were there but had a great time in spite of it. Went to the casino, did some antique shopping and got some great candles. We still had fun.

Waterford, Michigan

Hey Jennifer
I want you to know we enjoyed our stay up at the house. everything was great, Beds are so comfortable. Love the screened in porch. Also the winery you recommended was great I bought a case, I'll definitely before I run out. My granddaughter wanted to take home the baby doggies. I tried to tell her they were deer. My family wants to do this again, it was a great way to get all the kids together. I am bringing the bicycles up next visit.

Piscataway, NJ

I enjoyed staying up here Last summer in August. I cannot believe the Deer that visited the property. It was so peaceful and our christian retreat was very fruitful and we went home totally rejuvenated.

This year me and my friends were up in June for another retreat. It was amazing how small the baby deer were.we witnessed a baby deer just born in the rear yard from the deck. I cannot believe how tiny they are and how wobbly they are the first few hours of life. My friends and I are convinced ... we plan on making a few visits a year. GREAT place to clear the mind and get regrouped.

Also we love the new renovations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What kind of Activities can I expect in the Fall thru Spring?
A: The Fall Foliage is spectacular in this region, I would say the best time for peak colors would be between late Sept-late Oct, varies with Mother Nature. Fall is also the Best time for Hiking, Craft shows n Car shows, Great to bring the kids during those long weekends Holiday Veterans Day, etc get that last minute biking or hiking. Winter everyone thinks skiing , but did you know the best Eagle Watching can be in the cold weather. February is Fantastic for the Crystal Cabin Fever Event & Spring well there are some i
Impressive Massive Water Falls or just go rafting.
Q: My Tranquil Getaway is Special and a great place to make memories with Friends and Family!?
A: I have been a Time- Share Owner for about 30 years, when I decided to Share MTG as a Vacation Rental I wanted to make sure the home was equipped well so that if you decided you were in the mood for home made donuts, waffles and not just plain smores while sitting around the chimnea or wood burning stove... then go on in the kitchen and whip up a batch. Plus by supplying spices, and some baking ingredients as well as saran wrap or foil. you can easily save $25.00 on groceries. Sometimes the best Memories are new ones you create.
Q: Naturally Lake Wallenpaupack is one of many area attractions,?
A: But if swimming in the lake is not for you then there is Carousel Water Park has everything from bumper boats, water slides, mini golf, Then even closer is Costa's Family Park definitely visit the 84 Country Store [ great BBQ, The Ledgedale BBQ Pit, Horse back riding, and The Environmental Learning Center always has something educational going on.
Q: What Pet Friendly Things are for my Dog and me to do?
A: First of all I usually have pet treats at the house for the Little Ones & Big Ones. Occasionally I have home made treats. The rescues love em and so do my friend's pets. Promise Land State Park has 3,000 acres with 2 lakes and several streams. Indian Head Canoeing in Matamoras Has pet friendly boat rentals. Bushkill Falls also allows pets.
From Memorial Day to Labor Day pets are restricted from being on the public beach to go in the Lake, However if you have a boat they are allowed in the water. as always safety is important for both you and your pets.
