Lovely lake, lovely house!
We loved this house! Perfectly situated on a beautiful, peaceful lake, surrounded by nature but a short drive from stores, restaurants, and low-key attractions. Lake was great for swimming and exploring, lots of outdoor spaces to chill out. Loved that the house came with sheets, towels, papergoods, kayaks, paddleboard; just bring your bathing suit and your toothbrush and you are all set. One thing to note: the bunkbeds are a bit lower than usual, my small 9 year old could not sit upright on the bottom bunk without bumping his head, would likely be claustrophobic for anyone bigger. Overall, awesome house for a family of four; hope we can come back!
We enjoyed our stay, the lake was nice beautiful views from everywhere in the house, caught a bunch of fish, the house comes with just about everything you need, place was nice and clean, plenty of privacy, couldn't ask for nicer place, sad to have to leave, highly recommended
Very convenient cute and cozy cottage
The cottage is right on the lake, very nice.
Amazing views from all windows.
Especially nice to see lake and mountains directly from the bed in your bedroom.
We enjoyed swimming and kayaking,
and my husband enjoyed fishing.
It was nice to communicate with owner, Michele.
1st Time Lake Renter!
We were not disappointed with the amazing views from inside and outside the house. The house was very roomy and clean. Enjoyed the outdoors, kayaking, fishing and relaxing. Saw the adult and young bald eagle, heron and beaver. It was a very pleasant stay, we would definitely stay here again. It would have been nice if there had been two single kayaks so we could have gone off by ourselves.
Excellent week on the lake
This is very well-maintained property. perfect for 3-4 people (couple with kids)
The lake is a quiet gem relatively close to NYC
We received all instructions, directions etc in time from the owners
If you are fisherman make sure that you are OK with kayak fishing. No outside motorboats are allowed. The lake is full of a very good size crappies!
Why 4 stars: Water is the issue, although we were told so. Too much of H2S!
Overall, we enjoyed nearby Stoke Forest preserve, the house, the lake, the dock and kayaking with a fishing pole.
We had a great time at the lake. The kids spent hours on the water - kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming. The water was clean, the views were spectacular and we enjoyed our stay immensely. The house has all the amenities needed and we hope to be back.
