My wife and I are thinking of permanantly relocating to WLE from the Philly burbs. My father's side of the family is from 'upstate' so the transition isn't completely new to me. Any good/bad info on WLE or the schools?
We visited WLE several times and LOVED it.
As side note: we're in our late 30's.

Also, any other good/bad info on other Wallenpaupack communities?

Thanks in advance.

Wallenpaupack Lake Estates is a great community. The school district is Wallenpaupack Area School District which is always rated a top school in the area. The community itself offers 24/7 security, 2 lakes/plus Lake Wallenpaupack, 2 outdoor swimming pools/1 indoor swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball courts, very friendly people and just an overall nice atmosphere. To learn more about the community (although you've been there before) you can always visit their website. www.wleonline.org They go into detail about upcoming events and other things that you might be interested in knowing if you plan to relocate there.

I hope I have been of some assistance.

Default That's a great community

We were looking for homes in that area last year. We ended up in Tunkhannock PA which is about 45 min. west of there. We wanted more property and got a great 3 acre piece of prop. with a 3 bed/ranch home there.
WLE has nice homes but smaller pieces of property. You can find some on an acre if you get lucky. In the summer the place is full of activity with young families coming to Lake Wallenpaupack. I can't say enough about that area.
Tanglewood Lake North is also another nice community but it has deed restrictions.
All in all, Pike, Wayne, Susquehanna and Wyoming Counties are wonderful!!
Stay away from Monroe County though. Too crowded and too many problems now.

I am not 100% sure of what things they don't allow outside the homes.
Some communities won't let you have a shed, a boat etc. It depends on the community. In Tink-Wig they don't allow the oversized garages. We were going to build in there but decided not to because of the restrictions.

Default Easy enough

Its easy enough to put up with things that keep the yards free of junk.......but in some 55+ communities they tell you how long your family can stay. Seriously, I have seen where it says visitors for up to 30 days total......
There is a time limit to how long the grandkids can stay over night.
I was told by someone in SC that if the elderly person died who owned the home, it could not go to the daughter who was not 55. She'd have to immediately sell it.........
Rules that get in the way of family life and comfort are just not good.

I know that Towamensing has "no trailers" stored on your lot........but
then again it has "power boats" that can.
So ........one but not the other. Who makes the decisions of choice?

That is a big reason we wanted to be out in the country. I loved the homes there and my favorite is Lake Wallenpaupack, but we didn't want to deal with anymore rules and regulations. We are now on a 3 acre piece of land and boy what a view and no rules or nosey neighbors either!

We are looking next week at property at WLE and the Hideout.

Hopefully we will be able to figure out what to do.

thanks
