About Julia Morris
My name is Julia, and I live in Williamsburg, Brooklyn with my husband, Fred. We love the Little House so much. And ever since I bought it in 2008, it has been a wonderful retreat for us away from the craziness of the city. I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri and have always lived in old houses. But this cottage -- my first of my own--was built on its footprint in 2008 and all its fixtures are new! I so love the bamboo floors and the sliding glass doors that lead out to the view from the deck. I wrote my dissertation for my doctorate in this special retreat; it has always been a house made for reading, painting, and writing. And as a St. Louisan, I love to see the cardinals fly by!

Why Julia Morris chose Greenwood Lake
I was driving a friend around to look at possible houses she might purchase. We got connected with an amazing real estate broker and, at the end of the day, she showed us the house I now own! It was just being re-built on its footprint; there was not even a roof yet. But I knew...I just knew! I am going to live here! My friend never ended up buying anything but I did! And have never regretted it for a second. It has always been called 'The Little House' and it is a true cottage all my own. Can't wait to share it with you!!
What makes this Cottage unique
The view from the deck was what initially drew me. But then, once the bedroom was built and came to life, I've loved the shady sanctuary of being surrounded by rocks and trees that this room provides. Great for afternoon summer naps with the ceiling fans gently bringing more coolness. The owners built the Little House with a true artist's touch and included tiles and other creative fixtures. The bamboo floors and the gas fireplace are unique aspects which I so also love.

very cute and cozy place with a beautiful view of the lake, cute towns nearby, we went to warwick, where we had brunch and walked around the town, the town was having a street fair. Saturday night they had fireworks over the lake which was a pleasant surprise, overall a nice weekend
What a beautiful location in a beautiful state! We spent most of the weekend enjoying the back deck overlooking the lake.
relaxing, quiet get-away
We had a very pleasant few days in the "Little House". The deck with the view of the lake was wonderful and the bedroom stayed cool enough for comfortable sleeping, even though the days got pretty hot. We had everything we needed to relax and enjoy our little vacation.
Relaxing couples getaway
My husband and I spent a lovely week at the Greenwood Lake cottage. Perfectly sized for two with a nice view of the lake, the cottage felt homey and cozy. We had some rain while we were there but managed to get some sunny days to spend kayaking on the lake and hiking nearby areas. I would recommend!
Charming Rooms ... with a View
How pleasant to sit on the deck and breathe in the fresh air over Greenwood Lake. This charming hideaway was perfect for relaxing for a few days. And as a bonus, the owner's suggestions of "Things to Do" in the nearby area were just to our liking.
Sweet Little House, great views, privacy, lots of green!

(15 min. walk and a 2 minute drive) The property, itself, consists of almost an acre. There is a garden, outdoor sitting area, and storage shed.

There is the Warwick Winery, the Bellvale Creamery (might see some Appalachian hikers stopping in!), the Village Buzz in Greenwood Lake, so many great restaurants and shopping in nearby Warwick and folksy Sugar Loaf, easy and challenging hikes such as 'Surprise Lake' (across from the Greenwood Lake Marina) and all throughout Sterling Forest. Take a boat ride or just have fun swimming in my favorite lake of all time!
The best activity: Grab a book and a glass of wine and sit on the deck. Reflect, dream, and watch, especially in the evening, as the moon does its own Greenwood Lake dance. Truly spectacular.
