House with its own PRIVATE BEACH, DOCK, FIRE PIT on the beach, HOT TUB, GAME ROOM, and BASKETBALL court in parking lot. ENJOY the VIEW of the LAKE, and the SUNRISE, from the beach or from one of the decks.
At the end of 2017, we did a great deal of renovations, upgrading our kitchen, living room, and now have an additional room for the Hot Tub, an additional bathroom, and 2 new decks. The top deck is 31 feet long by 16 feet wide. Half the deck is covered by a glass roof. This means that you can be outside while it rains and barbecue.
This house is in the Hideout, a 4 star gated community. They offer activities for adults, teens, and toddlers. During the summer they have swimming and tennis lessons, day camps, and sports camps available.

Keep in mind that besides our rental fee, the Hideout charges a registration fee of $100 for up to 3 nights. (We do not charge you the $125 for 4 to 7 nights' rental that they charge. We charge $100 for all lengths of stay.)

There is a $300 SECURITY DEPOSIT required, IN ADDITION TO the required $79 RENTER'S INSURANCE, that's offered by HOMEAWAY/VRBO. The reason for the security deposit is because your renter's insurance will not pay for every charge you might cause. For example, if anyone in your party gets a speeding ticket, a littering ticket, etc at the Hideout, your renter's insurance will not pay for it. (Inside the Hideout, this gated community, the speed limit is 15 to 25 mph.) Therefore, if someone in your party gets a speeding ticket, or any other ticket at the Hideout, your security deposit will be used to pay for that ticket.
The Hideout charges a late fee of $40 if given less than 2 working days to process your registration paperwork.
Please allow at least 5 days or nights to process a rental, since the Hideout requires at least 3 days to process your rental without an additional fee, and they are closed Sundays and Mondays. They also close by 4: pm the rest of the week.
Pennsylvania charges a 6% State sales tax for short term rentals, meaning rentals less than 30 days, and a 3% rental tax for Wayne County.

As of April 2019 they started to collect the 3% tax for the County.
