About Douglas Segulja

I am a young architect in NYC. Check out my instagram @ossoarch. I purchased the house in 2015 and spent two years undertaking a big overhaul, doing a lot of the work myself. The #deertrailhouse has been a labor of love, but well worth it. During this time, I've grown to love Lake Greenwood and the surrounding area. The neighbors and community are warm and welcoming. I hope you will find this all to be true too!

Why Douglas Segulja chose Sterling Forest

The property is unlike many in the area. It offers all the rustic beauty of mountain and lake living, while also providing the modern conveniences we all enjoy while on vacation or holiday! The large open kitchen is perfect for your inner chef and vaulted ceiling provide a feeling of luxury. With all the new glass windows and skylights, it's hard not to feel like you're living in the trees. Every season is spectacular too! The summers are breezy and relaxing with wonderful lake access. The fall is spectacular as the foliage changes right before your eyes. The winter can't be beat with snowfall, an full lake view, and fire roaring. And spring is the perfect season to experience all the local flowers in bloom. There really isn't a bad time to visit.

Relaxing cabin high up in the trees

  • 5 of 5

Attractive, comfortable space. Group of 7 enjoyed a relaxing week. Surprisingly, even the bunk bed mattresses slept very well! Enjoyed preparing meals in the to the living area and great tree top view. Basic pantry was very useful, and in fact, there were a lot of tasty things left behind to enjoy. Loved coffee and meals on the deck. Kitchen had everything we needed by way of appliances and pots and pans. Although neighbors are close by, elevated position of house retains privacy. That driveway is something else..our driver was a mountain goat no problem. We had a minivan rental. AT trail just a few hundred feet away was great for walks. In all our communications with homeowner.we found him professional, kind, and accommodating. Route to NYC was pleasantly moderate for traffic. Both days we were in Manhattan in an hr and fifteen..impressive! . Very convenient location for us visiting JW World headquarters and Branch facilities. Well water was a lil odorous, a first for us, but host generously provided other drinking/cooking water. Cleanliness was a little sub-par...but maybe we hit on an off week.

Beautiful house in a lovely part of the world

  • 5 of 5

My husband, father, two toddlers and I spent a relaxed few days at Douglas' house. It's a beautiful house and just what we were looking for. The private beach was perfect for the girls (there are beach toys and chairs provided) and we had a great time picking strawberries at Ochs Orchard. On the other side of the lake we enjoyed lunch at Cove Castle (which appears to have a well place bar and live music) and our girls had a great time when we rented a boat for an hour (no boating licence required). I'd highly recommend the house and the area and Douglas was very helpful and good at communicating.

Great Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The drive from the city to the cabin was just under an hr. After climbing the winding road to the house, the view was amazing!! The entire front of the house is glass. No blinds or curtains (which was fine because the house is so high up no one could see in). My group and i parked in the two spots designated a few houses down. The house was immaculate and looks exactly like the pictures. No trickery here! We spent three days using the great fire place, taking small hikes, and cooking in the open kichen. Great place!! Will surely be back.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at the house! Yes, some of the other houses in the neighborhood are older, but thankfully, each year I see more and more being updated like mine. You're welcome back anytime. Me alegro de que haya disfrutado de su estancia en la casa! Sí, algunas de las otras casas en el vecindario son más viejas, pero afortunadamente, cada año veo más y más actualizado como el mío. De nada, en cualquier momento.
