Wayne County: PA Home in the Country

Wayne County: A Pennsylvania Home in the Country

If you are looking for "off the beaten path", this is just the home for you. If you are looking for quiet surroundings, pastoral scenery, and the soothing sound of rushing water nearby, you can stop your search.

ACTUALLY, you'll need me to help you find something else, because this home is now SOLD! 

This is God's Country. It's secluded - without leaving you isolated. Believe it or not, it's within a 15 to 20 minute drive of everything you could need (to some of you city dwellers, with a Walgreen's and Wal*Mart around every corner, 15 to 20 minutes seems long, but it really is not. You are in the country now!)

White Oak Pond Northeast PA Wayne County Fishing



For fishing enthusiasts, nearby you will find White Oak Pond, a 175 acre lake, which, according to the PA Fish Commission, is home to several species of fish: largemouth bass, chain pickerel, bluegill, pumpkinseed, black crappie, brown and yellow bullhead, and yellow perch.

Another nearby pond is Long Pond (also known as Alden Pond) - which has traditionally been stocked for winter fishing.

15 minutes or so will take you to Honesdale (the county seat for Wayne County, and the biggest town in the county as well), where you will find shopping, Home Depot, movies, fine dining and fast food, a full service hospital, dentists, family doctors, specialized health care, and lots of small town charm.

Go 15 minutes in the other direction and you can hit the slopes at Elk Mountain Ski Resort, one of the leading ski facilities in the area. In the Waymart Boro, you will find more health care services and some other necessities. Scranton & Dickson City PA is just a little further out (roughly 40 minutes or less) and has absolutely everything you could want - there are two malls (Steamtown and Viewmont) with stores like Macy's and Old Navy...in Dickson City you will find Target, Home Depot, and Lowes...tons of national chain restaurants. My favorite movie house is the Cinemark by Montage..(and of course, there's Montage Mountain for skiing as well..)

Many of my clients who initially are looking for a home in the Lake Wallenpaupack area are sometimes surprised at how close together many of the homes are. This very well maintained bi-level home on Creek Drive in Waymart (Mount Pleasant Township, just past Prompton & Aldenville) is perfect for those who are looking for an affordable home with a large yard and lots of space. With about 2 acres of land, you can do a lot of things - plant a garden, do some decorative landscaping, swim in the pool, romp in the grass with kids or pets...or just sit on the deck and enjoy the view.

Across the street, the Lackawaxen River (West Branch) babbles on toward its terminus nearly 40 miles away in Lackawaxen, PA - the last time I was at this property I stood for about ten minutes listening to nothing but the sound of the river. No distracting traffic, no "city sounds." It was almost like a mini-vacation.

The virtual tour for this home has been disabled since it is now sold.  Please feel free to contact me about selling your home..

Vincent, thank you for the comment.  If you ever hear of someone - let me know!  I am happy to work by referral, too!  :-)

 I just love this spot.  There is also a "undeveloped" state park within about ten minutes or so of this house (Prompton State Park).  It is 2,000 acres in size and has a 290+ acre lake.  Though DCNR is not managing the park right now, to my knowledge the park is open to visitors.    There is a grassroots organization called Friends of Prompton State Park who are working to revitalize this neglected gem.

My parents and I used to go to Prompton Park every summer when I was a kid.  My dad and I would go fishing after we all devoured the home made potato salad and Tastee Fried Chicken from the long gone Tastee Freez (it was our answer to KFC, ha ha.  Boy, I miss that place!)

Ginger and Marchel - thank you so much for your comments.  I have so much fun doing the Real Estate Shows.  Is it bad - I like to watch them over and over!!  The music, the movement - they really make a property shine.

This home is really in a gorgeous location; not only where the home actually is, but the drive along Creek Drive is just so beautiful.  You see the Lackawaxen River several times, along with farm views.  It's the kind of place I would love to have one day.
