About Charles Greenwald

Hello! My name is Charles Greenwald. I live in New York City and work in the financial services industry. I have a love of the outdoors, and the lake home is one of my favorite places to spend my free-time.

Charles Greenwald purchased this cabin in 1970

Why Charles Greenwald chose New York

I have been spending time at the house my whole life! Going there with my parents as a child, and more recently with friends, my girlfriend or my broader family. It represents the perfect getaway from the everyday city life. It is an easy place to be, allowing for a relaxing, carefree, cozy and most of all fun place to escape! There is plenty to do year round for both kids and adults, whether its a swim in the lake, a bbq right outside or going for a great hike right nearby on the Appalachian trail. Send me an email or call at anytime and I will be happy to answer any questions you have. Thanks!

What makes this cabin unique

I find the house to be a truly unique place to relax. It isn't far from the city but certainly feels like you are. It is a fantastic place to spend time with your friends & family and unwind for a short, or long vacation.

The house is located right on Whaley lake, with great swimming, boating and lake activities. When wanting to get out for a bit, there are plenty of things to do nearby.

There is a general store, grocery stores, Dunkin donuts, restaurants, movie theaters, parks, bars, skiing (beginner mountain), golf (and mini golf) all in the area (happy to give directions and names etc.)

About 20 minutes away is the town of Danbury, CT which has large stores for shopping, a larger restaurant selection and a couple more activities (i.e. bowling).

Please note: the house is down a set of stairs from the parking area that might be difficult for some elderly guests.

Relaxing by the lake

  • 5 of 5

Charles was a pleasure to deal with for our stay by the lake. We live on Long Island and it only took us about an hour and a half to get here. The view of the lake was so gorgeous, you couldn't have a better spot. The inside kitchen has all essentials and has a nice screened in porch in case it gets buggy. We sat outside, kayaked, fed the ducks, fed the fish and saw a bald eagle and many blue herons. My dog loved watching the wildlife as well. We had such a great time. Thanks again Charles!

Great lake house

  • 5 of 5

House was great for a 4th of July long weekend with some friends. Great proximity to the water and lovely deck over the boathouse. Porch/Sun room was perfect for dining and relaxing, while the beds were super comfortable.

Beautiful view ; easy stay

  • 4 of 5

Charles is a very responsive and welcoming host - he sent an excellent fact sheet and responded quickly & graciously to any questions. Our weekend was brief - (and rainy, as it happened!) - but we were very comfortable, and the view is really special. Lovely kayaking spot. Beautiful birdsong in the morning - a real escape from city life.

Tips: We would second the advice to arrive during daylight; there are lights on the stair case, but it is quite steep (so don't overpack!).

Great getaway from the city

  • 5 of 5

What a cozy cabin!

Even during the winter it was relaxing and peaceful.

We really enjoyed our stay.

Be careful when arriving at night (especially for the cityfolk). GPS is not so reliable (we ended up in a neighbor's backyard!). And there are a good number of erratic steps to go down to get to the house. Take my advice: arrive during daylight hours!

Magical winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this home.

We stayed for our Christmas holiday and it was magical . We arrived and there was snow and ice ( we are from LA so 👍🏼) it was a winter wonderland .

The home was cozy with plenty of firewood in the two story fireplace!!! I watched the ducks, geese , and an eagle !!! from the window . Along with other wildlife .

We did not have a dog originally but when we had to babysit my daughters boyfriends dog at the last minute , I called Charles our host, and he was accomadating . Charles is flexible and will work with you . He was a most gracious host.

I am looking forward to experiencing other seasons at this home.

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

Charles was a pleasure to work with and was responsive to our questions. The house was exactly as described. Decor was great, and house was surprisingly stocked with plenty of useful items for cooking etc. Fireplace and grill worked great!! We enjoyed the autumn views and taking the canoe on the lake. Not at all a deterrent, just be aware of the steep steps, hidden driveway and limited parking. GPS may not be able to find the house right away. This is a good thing for those wanting to be off the grid but within a short distance of NYC. Overall great place to stay!
