Lake Wallenpaupack!!! The area is beautiful We looked at homes there 3 years ago. We did end up in Tunkhannock because we found a home big enough for our bedroom furniture plus we have a 20 mile view.
We still would consider buying a new home near Lake Wallenpaupack in the future.

I built a home in WLE last year......security drove by at least 10 times a day. Every point listed on their permits was enforced. Kind of a pain for me, no disrespect, but when the wind blows some paper out of the dumpster....tough to control. But they did call me to tell me to clean-up after windy days, etc. Very protected per any community I have worked in as of recent. They were fair to me as a contractor....but it did take some additional effort on my part. If I build there again, I ill be better prepared. Send me a DM if you want me to quote out any plans for you. Good luck.

The security there is tops. Did you get to speak to them they are very reasonable. Alittle tough on the builders, but that is way it is. Are you happy there now that you are moved it? It is a very friendly community with many things to do.
