Overview

About the property

Lake-Front Log Cabin (c 1940)

Just 50 miles northwest of New York City, this log cabin situated on Pinecliff Lake, on the NJ/NY state border, was built in 1940 and fully restored in 2008. Two bedrooms on the main floor sleeps 1-4 exceptionally comfortably. Outdoor deck with round table and benches as well as additional Adirondack seating; cantilvered deck over the lake; great place to sit and read, or simply soak up the sun. Deck also features a terra cotta chimnea (fire pitt), which is great for cool nights, sipping a glass of wine (or cocktail of choice!) and watching the sunlight slowly dip behind the mountain.

If you're looking for a place to unwind from the hustle and bustle, quiet nights (and days), this is the place.

About Dennis Constantine

After living and working in New York City for the past 20+ years, I decided I wanted a place to escape to on the weekends; a laid back place with little-to-no-stress. A friend called me one day in May 2007, from the cell phone saying he just drove by this great log cabin, for sale; has 'your name all over it.' So I asked him to send me a pic from his iPhone and the next I know, I'm in contract to buy the cabin. Funny how these things happen.

Dennis Constantine purchased this cabin in 2007

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin is right out of a design magazine. Quintessential style. The garden, the lake, the peaceful neighbourhood were everything I was hoping for. The owner, Dennis, is accommodating and prompt with replies. It is obvious this place means a lot to him. I highly recommend the cabin for a longed for getaway.

Very relaxing and comfortable.

The cabin was perfect. We enjoyed the backyard, dock and lake. We would definitely stay again.

We had no issues and everything was explained thoroughly in detailed instructions.

Just the perfect escape for the week! The cabin was everything it was described to be 😃?....True serenity lakeside in a small town away from the city. Dennis was the perfect host - in touch with him if we needed an answer to any question. Thanks for a wonderful week !

Like upstate but a quick drive away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is everything described in the owner's write-up and by most reviewers. The home is clean and cozy. Once outside you are aware that neighbor homes are close by and you're not in the middle of nowhere, but it is a small trade off. The bottom line with this cabin is that it feels very much like a cozy Adirondacks lake house without the six-hour drive! I would return and recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a clean, well-maintained, easy getaway destination.
