Other great local activities to try: Antiquing, spas, distilleries, fall festivals, and farmers markets.

About Jack Rodriguez

In 2003 My wife and I purchased 5 acres of land on a private road in the Swinging Bridge lake community. By early 2005 our dream home was built, and the years of fun and adventure with friends and family began. Twelve years later, now with our son well into sports and other activities, we have decided to share our special home with others.

Jack Rodriguez purchased this house in 2004

Wonderful place for a weekend with friends

  • 5 of 5

Jack's place was a great fit for us, a group of 10 friends, for a long weekend get-together. While we had hoped for some skiing, we were "forced" inside by the lousy Smarch weather. We didn't mind so much - the great room's beautiful pool table and bar area are central to the house's layout and we made extensive use of both. We could watch the Olympics from the bar, or lounge in the comfy chairs in the den area closer to the TV. We had a large jigsaw puzzle set up on the dining room table, while also using much of the ample counter space in the kitchen while cooking. The kitchen was well-stocked with just about everything we needed, but, as usual, when staying in a rental kitchen, you should bring any truly indispensable items with you. Everything was clean and tidy, the master bathroom was one of the nicest I've seen, and Jack was in touch easily by text when we had any questions. The road (the last quarter mile only) was muddy and slippery, but our cars (with good tires and/or all-wheel drive) made it fine, and the wintry mix of weather made the road conditions especially bad while we were there. Groceries (we used Wal-Mart), a bus station (e.g., to and from NYC) and a great used book store ("Read It Again"), plus a selection of restaurants and other stores, are conveniently located in Monticello, which is 15 or so minutes away. The lot is very private in a wooded area not far from the reservoir. One recommendation for Jack: invest in a horse hair brush for the pool table. Also, though we used the pull-out sofa and air mattress, we couldn't find sheets or pillows (or towels) for those sleeping in the loft (not a problem for us, as we brought our own for these extra beds). Thanks for everything, Jack - we'd love to be back sometime!

This house is amazing! Clean and well stocked. Even has cards against humanity! The owner Jack was very responsive and informative. My friends and I stayed during winter, however this would be great for the summer as well. Fire pit and gas grill outside, wood burning fireplace inside. The house did in fact have WiFi, but it did seem somewhat slow at times, not sure if there were too many devices connected simultaneously. Overall we had an amazing time and will definitely come back! Thank you again Jack for a wonderful experience!

Better than imagined!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Jack and Millie for sharing your amazing home! I planned a surprise party for my husband including adult children and friends over the course of the weekend. Each and every person who walked into the house was awed by its beauty. It captured the essence of a fun, warm and cozy family and friends weekend. Honestly, the photos don't do it justice. We cannot wait to find another reason to go back! Jack was super easy to work with and has excellent response time. We always felt he was only a moment away if we needed him, and invisible when we didn't. Aside from all the dramatic finishes and style to the home, perhaps the most important feature to me was that it was IMMACULATE! Thank you again. We would recommend this home hands down, you won't be disappointed!
