Pike County - Walker Lake Estates, Shohola PA

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Real Estate RS301772

Walker Lake Estates in Shohola is a small, quiet homeowner community only fifteen minutes from Milford PA, about 2 hours from the GWB and Lincoln Tunnel. About 1 hour and 40 minutes from Tappan Zee.

Walker Lake is a great fishing lake. (I caught a few bass there myself, back in the day...) If you want peaceful, this is it!  Only 5hp motors are allowed on this lake, so no peace and serenity disrupted by wave runners, water skiing, or speedboaters!

Walker Lake is in Pike County and the homes are in the Delaware Valley School District.

(This post originally referenced a cabin that was listed for sale - rather than delete the post, I kept the parts about Walker Lake for general info purposes.)

Dan, excellent point!  I will add a link to a Google map (I love Google Maps!!).  This little get-away cottage in Pennsylvania is less than 2 hours from the Tappan Zee Bridge, and about 2 hours from the Lincoln Tunnel and the GWB.  

I just listed this cabin yesterday.  When I got there to take the pictures, I didn't want to leave!  And even though it was very hot yesterday, the cabin was comfortable - thanks to all the shady trees and the ceiling fans.  It needs someone to make it "theirs."  It's too cute!

Chris - I added the lot size.  It is about a quarter acre in size.

Thesa, Missy, James, and Blue Ridge (is that you Bill?):

It is truly an excellent location for relaxing.  I hated to leave when I finished taking my pictures.  :) 

Thanks all for the comments and feedback.

I guess this goes to show... never judge a book by its cover.  The cottage is so cute and is unexpectedly larger than it looks from the outside.  Good luck with it.

Wonderful area.  You did a fantastic job showcasing it with photos.  I didn't realize it was so close to NY.  I have brothers in the New York suburbs and I'm sure they know people looking for weekend places so I'm forwarding this link.  If you compile anything else for this listing be sure to drop me an email.

Thank you all.  I do not expect it to last long either.   My uncle used to live here in Walker Lake, and I have always had a soft spot for this community.  I used to sit on his dock (he had a lakefront lot) and feel the sunfish nibble my toes!  He also took me out in his boat to go fishing...I have nice memories of Walker Lake and would love to help someone start building their own!

Karen, I can't believe how inexpensive this cottage is. You would think that someone would snap it up immediately.

Nice-looking place -- does it have central heat? (i.e. is this a year-round cabin?)

Hi Wayne - I can't believe it either.  I think it just needs to get "out there" for everyone to see it.  :)

Hello, last poster!  Yes, the cabin is suitable for year- round use; it is fully insulated and has electric baseboard heat.  The owner told me that the free standing fireplace is powerful enough to heat the entire cabin as well (propane.)

That's a nice little cottage! I can visualize it in the mountains where I was born. I'm surprised though that there is something priced that low in PA! Or are the prices not high there like in a lot of eastern states?

Shohola is beautiful. I very much miss living there because of how peaceful it is. There is pretty much no crime. Of course this day and age you have to lock your doors but it's out in the middle of nowhere but it is some where. Milford is right around the corner and has great places to eat and is all around a nice atmosphere. When I get the chance I'm buying something on walker lake. Or at least in the same neighborhood. It may not seem lively. But this place is drowning with breaths of fresh air. I live in Houston Texas and visited my old place of residence in shohola in the summer and the air is purifying to the lungs. It smells like straight pine trees and i love it. Anyways it's one of the most untouched places in America but still has a strong community feel.

Stefan, what a lovely comment about Shohola.  It is a nice little spot almost untouched by the sprawl that hits other areas.  I miss going to Walker Lake in the summer...my uncle had a  home w/ a lakefront lot there.  I have some nice memories.
