Take a look at my Featured Home…it’s located in one of the most amazing developments Wayne County has to offer:  the Hideout

The Hideout is a planned residential community consisting of approximately 3,000 single family homes nestled in the Pocono Mountains of Northeastern Pa.   While the Hideout maintains many state of the art facilities, they have also set aside nearly 250 acres of pristine woodlands for preservation in its natural state for all.  This complete, four season, recreational community maintains over forty (40) miles of paved roads and modern central sewer and water systems.  The community has six lakes and ponds: Roamingwood Lake (225 acres); Deerfield Lake (16 acres); Brooks Lake (8 acres); Windemere Lake (1 acre); Hidden Lake (1 acre); and Big Springs Pond (3 acres).

Some top-notch features:

  • 24 Hour Security
  • Gated Entrance
  • Public Utilities
  • Central Water and Sewer
  • 42 Miles of Paved Roads
  • Clubhouse
  • Lodge
  • Campgrounds
  • 250 Acres Of Pristine Woodlands

  • Indoor/Outdoor Tennis
  • Power Boat Lake
  • Two Sand Beaches
  • Two Heated Pools
  • Physical Fitness Center

And, all this is just a short drive to Scranton PA…where you’ll find malls, movie theaters, tons of restaurants and MORE!


Nestled in the woods close to Woodloch Pines and the PA/NY Border in Pike County is Fawn Lake Forest…founded way back in 1969.  Since then, many ‘transplants’ have made it their home and many local folks have taken up residence as well.  It’s also a prime spot for a vacation home, being within a short driving distance to Lake Wallenpaupack.  Amenities include a Clubhouse, Banquet Room, Indoor Pool, Outdoor Pool and the 146 acre Fawn Lake.  A workout room, craft room, game room, handball court, playground, basketball courts and a picnic area round out the selection available to residents.

Best of all, the prices in Fawn Lake are GREAT buys…homes start at 52K.  Yes, that’s right.  Granted, some are foreclosures that may need some work, but a home in a development with all that great stuff…for under 100K?  How could you go wrong?!?  There are many other listings too that are fantastic and under 200K, ideal for nearly any budget.

I’m pleased to announce that on Saturday, August 15th 2009 Weichert, Realtors — Paupack Group will be hosting an open house event in the nature lover’s dream development:  Paupackan Lake Estates.  Located in both Lakeville and Hawley, the cornerstone is one of the cleanest lakes in Northeastern PA…Paupackan Lake.  If you’re looking for genuine serenity surrounded by beautiful woods, this is the place for you.  No motor craft of ANY KIND is allowed on the lake (hence it’s cleanliness) so you can fish in your rowboat without having people whiz by on a Skidoo.  Kayaking is very popular too, tracing the shore and admiring the flora and fauna.  Swim off the private beach if you like…again, you won’t be disturbed by loud motors or boats flying past you.

The community consists of about 400 homes, and there are plenty of lots if you’re looking to build.  It’s a mix of seasonal folks and year-rounders, so things are extra peaceful in the winter!  Be advised that there aren’t any clubhouses, pools, or that sort of thing…Paupackan Lake Estates is truly a development made up of people who enjoy living a life ‘away from it all’.  Prices are VERY reasonable…and you’re a short drive to the free boat launch on Lake Wallenpaupack as well as within easy commuting distance to Scranton. 

So, if you’re coming to town the weekend of August 15th, stop in, make yourself at home and have a Weichert Weekend!  Call me, EJ Hetzel, 570-351-6785 and I’ll give you all the details.  Hope to see you soon!
