Beautiful, cozy, fun, homey, clean lakefront home with outdoor hot tub, minutes to vineyards, orchards, shops and restaurants, about an hour from NYC!! Amenities include parking for multiple cars, barbecue, multiple decks and family rooms for hosting, full kitchen with spices and all the pots and pans needed (A chef lives here). Skiing 10 minutes away and skating on the lake often in the winter! Gorgeous in ALL seasons, and the outdoor hot tub with phenomenal view is ALWAYS open! Summers include excellent fishing off the property, kayak, canoe, paddleboard (!), fire pit, barbecue, plus all the life vests, floats, etc. you'll need! Includes private beach with tetherball and easy access stairs into the lake. The dock will often be detached as a swimming island! A truly great, memorable getaway! Phenomenal view!
We are Mike and Nicky, we have a slew of beautiful kids, and are alums of Carleton College, Lancaster University, England, Glenbrook South High School, and Mount Pleasant Elementary amongst many others. Nicky's a chef, Mike's a day trader/writer/actor/slew of kids watcher. This house and location are incredible, and the prices are only going to go up, so book early to grab a good price!!
Nicky and Mike Sandels purchased this house in 2007
Nicky and Mike were super flexible and really welcoming. It was very easy to find the house, and it had plenty of space for everyone (little dog included)! The view was stunning, and the town was adorable. A very lovely, relaxing stay. Thanks so much!!
As I read the reviews I saw mostly 5 stars and only one 1 star. I figured the 1 star was just an overly critical person. I was sadly mistaken, that was the only accurate review. Our experience started out by finding out the owners were't trustworthy. Before I booked the house I asked the owners about a possible discount as we staying in the area as volunteer workers, they responded that they would give a 10% discount, which I was very appreciative of since they were not obligated to offer anything. I asked how to apply it and she said to book the room for the full price and then she would refund the discount. I take the blame for being naive but I booked it and surprise, no refund! I e-mailed a few times to ask about it and received absolutely no response. But since there were no other options for our group to stay all together in the area we went. Arriving at the house was another huge disappointment, it was dirty and in desperate need of maintenance. It was overgrown with weeds all around the house, there were spiderwebs and spiders throughout the house. We had to clean the kitchen when we arrived, the sink was filthy, I cleaned off a layer of slimy black gunk. There was food splatters on the walls by the sink, stove and counters. It was really gross. We tried to open some windows to air it out, a couple were stuck closed and we were afraid to try to open it for fear of breaking them. Some of the carpets were dirty and stained. They have a list of warning and notices for using the hot tub, putting the garbage out etc. We've stayed in vacation homes that are rented through an agency a number of times, and they have all been great. This experience with a private owner is very different and I personally would never do it again. On the positive note, the view of the lake is beautiful and they do have 6 bedrooms and 3 baths as advertised.
This is the second time my friends and I have rented the Sandal's House - we love this place! The house is very accommodating, perfect for large groups. With direct access to the water, a hot tub, grill, and game room - it's ideal for a quick, summer getaway outside the city. Nicky and Mike are quick to respond with instruction and inquiries. Overall a relaxing, carefree fun-filled experience. Highly recommended!
My family stayed at this wonderful lake house for a week in June 2016. The place was immaculate, and was well stocked with basic supplies (toilet paper, paper towels, basics in the kitchen, and linens and towels). The views of the lake are fantastic, and there are plenty of rooms and beds. The photos are very accurate as were the descriptions in the listing. TV and internet worked great, as well. I also had a few questions for the owners during our stay, and they were very responsive.
Bottom line: great house, great views, very clean and as described. I highly recommend it!
A few friends and I rented Nicky and Mike's home for New Years weekend and had an absolutely amazing time. The house is perfect. I can only imagine how beautiful it must be during the summer and how nice it would be to take a dip in the lake.
They set the house up for almost any situation. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Nicky contacted me to ask if there was anything I needed and if there were any problems. She was very helpful and made the whole thing a breeze. After dealing with many different renters while finding a house, it was nice to deal with someone who was available and hasslefree.
I would recommend this home to anyone I know and am considering renting again during the summer to take full advantage of the lake.
Thank you so much for letting us rent!
We stayed at this house for my husband's 60th birthday celebration. We loved the house; felt like home and had everything we needed. The lake and the view is beautiful. We were familiar with Warwick which is about 15-20 minutes away and had a great celebratory dinner at a restaurant there. We would not hesitate to stay again and would definitely recommend the property to friends and family.
Amazing orchards, vineyards and wineries all over the place to visit, eat, drink, etc. Entertainment on the lake at the public beach, a Medieval Faire, and the towns of Warwick and Sugarloaf nearby.

This property is rented EVERY SINGLE WEEKEND OF THE YEAR, and the town and the neighbors have taken notice and will complain if you are too loud or irresponsible. So please keep the noise down. Also, please try to keep your garbage output at a minimum so that all bags fit neatly in the cans provided on the driveway, and thus there will be no animal problems or complaints. Thank you!
