Extended weekend getaway with friends

  • 5 of 5

This lake house is wonderful. Adding to this is the owner who is quite accessible and responds quickly to your messages. We rented this house with two other couples for a extended weekend getaway. The house is quite spacious and well kept. The kitchen is well supplied with all cooking paraphernalia. The only thing needed is your food. Even that is there and Hugh said to use what we wanted. The bedrooms are all comfortable and spacious and have real mattresses. We never left the premises except to treat ourselves to dinner on Saturday night at a nearby restaurant. the deck are wonderful for relaxing and hanging with friends. The dock was not as low as referred to in other reviews, but that is due to the amount of rain the area has received this year. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and would return in a heart beat. Thank you Hugh for opening up your beautiful house to us.

Beautiful location and property

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I have stayed here, and I would absolutely go back again. The property is impressive and well-appointed and maintained, and you can't beat the enclosed porch, the decks, and the short walk to the dock. Both of my visits have involved six people, who slept comfortably. The owner is very friendly and responsive. It's a great place for a quiet, relaxing weekend away.

Beautiful Lakehouse with great amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Hugh's house for an extended 4th of July weekend and had an amazing time.

The house is spacious and comfortable. The grill worked out great and the two decks are very comfortable to hang out and relax in the sun. The lake is just down a couple of steps from the decks and the water is crystal clear, warm and clean.

We had a fantastic time and enjoyed every room of the house depending on the hour of the day and the weather... I would highly recommend staying in this house if you want to enjoy a quiet getaway 2 hours from NYC in a beautiful and comfy setting.
