About Amy & David Rozen

Amy is a Nurse and Homeopath and David is an Admissions Director for a Senior Living Community. We love lake living and welcoming people to White Meadow Lake.

Amy & David Rozen purchased this house in 2005

Why Amy & David Rozen chose White Meadow Lake

Our house is fully equipped with everything you will need, from wifi to linens and towels, games and a playset for the kids, gas grill, etc. Close to NYC on a quiet, peaceful lake, our house will provide you with an ideal getaway to relax, swim, boat, fish, and enjoy the natural surroundings.

What makes this house unique

When you drive down the the driveway, you can see right through the floor to ceiling windows clear to the lake in the back. Designed in an eclectic style of Bauhaus-Craftsman-Contemporary, the house is both elegant and welcoming. It provides the best of both worlds - a peaceful, quiet house in nature, yet so close to restaurants, cinema, shopping, and NYC!

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I had an amazing vacation here! The house is unbelievably beautiful and comes equipped with everything you could possibly want in a summer lake house! From the comfortable bedding, to the high end appliances, to the huge patio with ample seating, this house has everything you could want down to the last detail. We rented a house in the Poconos last summer that although similarly priced, didn't hold a candle to this property. The place we rented last year had old furniture, a very dated kitchen, and just wasn't cared for really well.

My parents and in-laws spent the week with us for a little family reunion at this property and it was a totally different experience. It had something for everyone! My husband, father, and father-in-law had a great time fishing right off the private dock, (and they caught fish every day)! My mom, my mother-in-law and I relaxed on the lake front furniture (which is plentiful and comfortable…unlike many rentals) while burning a fire in the fire pit every night. We took our 16 month old son swimming in the lake (his first time ever) and he loved it! The water was remarkably warm, and we walked with ease from the lawn into the water.

We even took out the kayaks for a relaxing cruise around the lake and we went ahead and sprung for the pontoon boat rental for the week…a MUST! In the peak of the summer, there weren't more than 2-3 boats on the lake at any given time. It was incredibly quiet and peaceful and truly completed the "lake experience." The boat was very easy to use, accommodated all of our guests, and required no maintenance! We went on the boat several times a day every day, and never had to fill up the tank. The boat rental was an amazing deal. We found that it's fairly difficult to find a lake house rental that includes a boat. We researched boat rentals and found that Lake Hopatcong, if you want to rent a boat it's $400/day, and of course you have to pick it up, have limited hours, etc. We paid $500 for the boat rental for the whole week and could use it any time we wanted! That alone made this a great deal. We had such a good time that we are talking about not only renting again next summer, but even looking into purchasing a home on the lake down the line!

I usually can find some pro's and con's to every trip, but I have to say in all honesty, this place was ALL pro's. It was everything we had hoped for and more!

We absolutely loved the peacefulness of the lake, enjoyed the beautiful house, and most of all the boat! We are grateful to David and Amy for being pet friendly. David was very kind and helpful. We shall return!!!

We were very disappointed

  • 1 of 5

We had to go to a hotel because of the smell in the home. Needless to say we do not have a good review and it was an inconvenience to find another place to stay with such short notice. Exstremely disappointed on so many levels.

Owner's Response: Dear Richard and Renee, We are sorry to read your negative review, however, we completely disagree about a bad smell in the house. Our house is always professionally cleaned, as it was the day of your arrival, has hardwood floors throughout, and has no bad odor. We have had dozens of very happy renters over many years, many repeat guests, from VRBO and other sites, including a full 10-week summer of back to back rentals just prior to yours, all with glowing reviews! You arrived close to midnight after a long, delayed flight and left our house at 3:00 am. When we returned to the house later that morning, we found your Lysol wipes all over the bathrooms (although everything was spotless) as if you had been scrubbing the bathrooms in the middle of the night. The fridge was filled with over 20 water bottles, which you must have bought on your way from the airport at that late hour (we have filtered water, btw). We invited you back to the house, but when you came, Renee refused to step foot inside, saying she could smell the odor from the walkway, with only the front door open, which was obviously absurd. Although Renee claimed to feel physically sick from the smell, neither we nor our friends and family who came over after you left could detect any smell whatsoever. In addition, you asked about having a large party at the house, which is against our house rules. You booked the house for 10 people (2 more than our usual maximum), but only 2 of you arrived. We wonder if you may have been looking for a reason to get out of the rental. Lastly, while standing outside our house, you told us that you rented from VRBO many times all over the country and never encountered this problem before, but when we asked at VRBO, it turns out not to be true, and this was your first time ever renting. We take great pride in our house, and we always aim to please. We can state with full confidence that our house smells absolutely fine. We regret that this review may concern other renters. Anyone is welcome to come visit the house or send a representative, if possible, prior to booking. We will gladly let you smell our house :) Sincerely, Amy & David

White Meadow Lake

  • 5 of 5

My family had an amazing 4 week stay at the house! The house is so peaceful. The lake is clean, clear, and excellent for swimming. Amy and David were extemely helpful and always available if we needed them. We loved being so close to Manhattan but feeling like we were so far away! I highly recommend it!
