About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths With 1st Floor Open Floorplan And Deck Overlooking Lake

Our lakeside home sits on a hillside overlooking beautiful Tennanah Lake (largest private lake in the Catskills). We love the quiet serenity of being out in the country, while still only 10 minutes from Roscoe stores and restaurants. We enjoy the house in all 4 seasons, but our favorite season is the summer. Nights are usually cool, with ceiling fans and open windows keeping it quite comfortable. We think you'll love falling asleep with the sounds of water lapping at the dock and waking up to great sunrises. Our spring-fed lake is clear and refreshing - perfect for a summer day swim. Look for the eagles that nest across the lake.

Great fishing - Tennanah lake is stocked with bass, trout and perch. We are also minutes from world class trout fishing streams and several outfitters in Roscoe.

Our home is on a hillside, so the great views come with somewhat steep path down to the water. We have a floating dock and the water gets deep quickly. May not be suitable for families with very young children or those with physical limitations.

About Carol Costello

I grew up on a lake in the Midwest. I loved all the seasons on the lake. We wanted to recreate this experience for our family and have found it with our lakeside retreat.

Carol Costello purchased this house in 2002

Why Carol Costello chose Roscoe

We were seeking a lakeside home within 2 hours of northern NJ. When we first walked out onto the back deck we knew we had found our idyllic lake home.

What makes this house unique

Our home has spectacular views from the deck outside the 1st floor. We love watching the sunrises and sunsets from our lakeside rooms and 2 decks. My favorite time of day is the golden hour before twilight, when the hillside lights up with gold and rose. Can't beat relaxing with a glass of wine on the deck before dinner.

Tennanah lake is a private lake community with no public access, so it is quiet, even on busy weekends.

Super views.

  • 5 of 5

Super views from almost every room. Neat and clean. Three full sized baths made getting ready for a wedding easier. We initially had a bit of trouble finding the house because our GPS lost its signal. We stopped and turned around a couple of times so use printed directions.

Fabulous house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house. It's not only that it RIGHT on the lake, the house was well and thoughtfully stocked, making it a very fun and relaxing vacation.

The beds were comfy, the towels plentiful and there were about a million floaties for the 5 kids to play with.

Thank you for the loan of your beautiful house

The property was exactly like the pictures. Quiet beauty...

  • 4 of 5

We had a great week at the lake house. There were 6 adults and three teenagers in our group. We enjoyed kayaking, fishing and hiking. We cooked all our meals at the house and ventured into both Roscoe and Livingstone Manor. The towns were disappointing as very little was open during the week. If you are looking for a quiet, scenic getaway, this is the place. Our host, Carol, was phenomenal. She always answered my questions within minutes and when I had a couple issues with the house, she sent someone to check it out promptly. I was very impressed with her genuine concern. I would recommend staying at Lake Tennanah. The lake is private and quiet.

The perfect lake getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for a week at the lake with friends. The house is spacious and well-maintained, and had everything we needed to relax for the week. The view and lake access right outside the back door werr truly amazing. Carol was extremely helpful and responsive with her communication. We would definitely return again in the future!
