Overview

About the property

Breathtaking Lakeside 100% Updated Home Hot Tub, Sauna, Kayaks, Boathouse Deck

Welcome to Leisure Lake Lodge! Bob, the 5 Star host of the The Lake House on Lake Hopatcong, had been searching for the perfect 2nd vacation rental home on the lake and I finally found it in 2016. My search criteria were indeed met with Leisure Lake Lodge: Size (host up to 9 guests comfortably), Location (the lovely Henderson Cove prized by fisherman, wake-boarders, and kayakers), extensive square footage for both indoor and outdoor gatherings, more dock space for boats and parking for up to 4 cars, and all of the updated features to delight even the most discerning guest.

Now, more on this wonderful property: With commanding views of Henderson Cove, Raccoon Island and north towards Byram Bay, Leisure Lake Lodge sits majestically with 5 levels of outdoor areas and three indoor levels that overlook the lake. The views and ambiance of this home are spectacular - lake views from the living room, dining room, master suite and the 4th bedroom/recreation room. Leisure Lake Lodge has one of the largest boathouses on the lake and upon it is perched a 400 square foot deck that gives you the sensation that you are floating on the water and an indoor party room off this deck. Up at the main house, everything will seem like its brand new - this house was rebuilt in 2009 and only lived in for three years. It shows beautifully with the finest construction quality, appliances, fantastic kitchen and 'like new' upscale bathrooms. Next, I appointed the house with premium furnishings and accessories a la Americana and Lake House themes. Everything we learned from running our perfectly rated Lake House on Davis Cove was applied to Leisure Lake Lodge.

Leisure Lake Lodge has everything your would want to enhance your holiday, whether you are looking for fun on the water in the summer, a special occasion with friends or a romantic getaway ... and its perfect for all seasons of the year. Highlights include a brand newer Hot Tub (August 2016) with views of the lake, the large boathouse (with deck and game room), spacious bedrooms with comfy beds, 65 inch state of the art UHD TV with loads of free movies, three premium bathrooms with on-demand hot water, one with Jacuzzi tub, a high quality Foosball table, regulation ping pong table, dock space to park a number of boats, a high quality kitchen fully appointed to please the picky chef in your party, a Weber Genesis grill, high-end kayaks for use by guests, float rafts, and if you are looking to rent a boat, I have my Sea Ray Sport 180 listed on Boatbound / Boatsetter for a very reasonable daily fee or you can pay more and rent boats from the local marinas. Outstanding hiking trails (over 4000 acres of near wilderness) can be reached by a short walk from the house. And what's more, Leisure Lake Lodge is hosted by 100% Five Star host Bob who also accept guests at The Lake House that is just 4 miles away. I would be wiling to rent both houses simultaneously to larger parties. Leisure Lake Lodge and The Lake House are the top 2 rated rental properties in the entire market based on guest reviews!

The property is located right off Lakeside Ave... just look for the garage and sign for Leisure Lake Lodge and you know you are there. Bob will most likely greet you when you arrive. The first room you will see is the Living Room and Kitchen on the main level. A large comfy Pottery Barn suede sectional sofa set surrounds the large size TV. The kitchen is at the far end of the room and there are views from the lake from every part of the living room, kitchen and dining area. A large stone gas fireplace is a centerpiece of this large living area. A large set of sliders open up to a large 38x14 ft. deck with sliver-proof composite planking. The three burner Weber grill is just steps away from the kitchen making grilling a breeze 4 seasons a year. The kitchen is equipped with a large refrigerator, ice cube maker, dishwasher, two coffee makers, microwave, toaster, triple filtered drinking water and all the cooking accessories you need. The Southeast lake views offer brilliant sunny mornings yet you can escape the heat of the afternoon. There are two large bedrooms on this level and a large premium full bathroom. One 14x11 ft bedroom features a queen size bed and the other 13x12 ft bedroom has two single beds as we find many of our guests prefer this configuration. A side door leads to a pantry foyer and out to a very private patio that features a brand new Hot Tub. The hot tub is available year round (planned to be installed by August, 2016) and there is never a day too cold to enjoy its soothing waters and in this private location. Back in the house, a staircase leads up to the third level where you will find the 330 square ft Master Suite. With breathtaking views from high above the lake, you will enjoy a King Bed with brand new mattress, a huge walk in closet and a oversized bathroom with a large shower and a jacuzzi tub.

From the main level, stairs lead down the ground level with large windows that overlook the lake. There you will find the indoor Sauna, a 4th bedroom featuring a twin over full bunk bed and another twin bed. There is also a full bath and a game area.

When you walk down the steps from the main level deck or out the door from the ground level, steps take you down to two separate grassy areas and a 50 ft lake frontage. A distinguishing feature of this property is a huge 39x32 Boathouse build over the water at the end of an 80 ft concrete dock. Steps lead up to an incredible 400 square foot deck where you are virtually surrounded by the lake. And off the deck is a 19x12 enclosed game room that features the ping pong table.

If you have a boat or jet skis, there is docking on both sides of the boathouse. Large concrete stairs lead right down into the water for swimming and wading. Between the bulkhead and the boathouse the water is not too deep so its a perfect place to let the kids play.

We are avid kayakers and we invite our guests to use our premium Wilderness Systems kayaks. You won't find cheap plastic Walmart specials here... a 17 foot Sealution XL will glide thru both flat or wavy water with ease and its effortless to get this craft to 5.5 MPH using my carbon fiber paddle. The other kayak is the 16 foot Freedom for those paddlers who prefer a sit on top configuration... but with a twist.. this kayak is considered the fastest sit on top kayak made. With 43 miles of shoreline to discover, kayaking and boating is incredible on Lake Hopatcong. I will provide paddles and life jackets. I also have rafts and floats if you prefer a more leisurely ride on the water. Please bring your own water shoes and sunscreen!

A little about the lake itself: Lake Hopatcong is only an hour from NYC yet it feels like a different world out here once you are immersed in "lake time". The lake has a long and rich history, discovered by the Lenape Indians 14,000 years ago, this was the chic destination for New York actors and socialites at the turn of the century and the roaring 20s. Today, the Lake is is knows as the largest in New Jersey with 43 miles of shoreline and is very popular for fishing, water sports and restaurant-hopping via boat. There are numerous restaurants and bars in the vicinity, including one just a very short walk away, and also all around the lake featuring lake views and the ability to "boat hop". And the NY/NJ Highlands Trail crosses just 0.2 miles away from the house (you can walk or drive to the trailhead and this section of the trail is outstanding and you will have 6000 acres of lovely terrain to yourself. Your hosts will be delighted to recommend a restaurant, additional places to take a hike in the lovely NJ Highlands, or a day trip.

In summery, Bob offers one of the newest and best vacation properties on Lake Hopatcong and I think you will have a truly memorable getaway at Leisure Lake Lodge any time of year!

Bob Hagan purchased this estate in 2016

Why Bob Hagan chose Lake Hopatcong

Bob purchased Leisure Lake Lodge in 2016 explicitly with vacation hosting in mind. This property met all my key criteria based on my learnings from hosting my other wonderful home on the lake, namely: completely updated and premium home, beautiful lake location, lots of space for more guests, more parking, the incredible boat house deck and attached game room, and loads of amenities I know would delight my guests. You won't find any hotels on the lake.. or any Bed & Breakfasts.. the only way you can enjoy life on the like is via a handful of vacation rentals and our near-term vision is to make Leisure Lake Lodge the most sought after vacation rental on Hopatcong.

What makes this estate unique

Leisure Lake Lodge is the #2 rated vacation/holiday rental in the whole market based on VRBO metrics for guest satisfaction. Breathtaking lake views from most of the rooms in the house surrounded by a beautiful landscaped setting leading down the the lakeshore. The large boathouse offers an incredible deck area that will make you feel your are floating on the water - you won't find this at any other rental on the lake. And we offer a new Hot Tub, Swedish Sauna, premium foos ball table, Ping Pong table, large screen UHD TV, premium furnishings, great updated kitchen and premium bathrooms and complimentary use of two high end kayaks - no other property on the lake offers this much ... and our rental rates are extremely attractive. In addition, Bob is the only host on the lake who offers his boat for rent (thru Boatbound and Boatsetter) - for a reasonable daily fee you can enjoy boating right from your own boathouse! In addition, we are willing to rent both our lake properties to accommodate larger parties up to 16 people and no other host offers this possibility. And finally, you likely won't find a host so committed to making your holiday perfect than Bob, and if you don't believe that, just read the reviews!

The Perfect Lakefront Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I very much enjoyed a long weekend at the end of July. The accommodations are fantastic! We had great weather and had so much fun on the owner provided kayaks, tubes and floats and also renting the owners boat for a day.

The owner is super helpful. The house has so many amenities (hot tub, game rooms, games, sauna, etc.) we didn't have time to enjoy them all. The home is beautiful and everything is top of the line. We hope to be able to return next year and years to come!

Amazing!!!

Excellent in every way! Leisure Lake Lodge was a perfect spot for our family to gather. Bob has thought of everything. The house is so beautiful, the beds were very comfortable, the property is simply amazing. We had a blast playing on the lake, and loved coming back to such an incredible home to relax and visit.
