Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Greenwood Lake - Tara House-Your home away!

5 br 3.5 baths with 75' lakefront home

Beautiful home on Greenwood Lake that sleeps up to 15! The Lynch Family invite you to their second home, Tara House, featuring lakefront access to Greenwood Lake, New York. Start your day with coffee on the lakefront deck and watch the swans fly by and the fish jump in the lake! In the summer, activities include boating, fishing, swimming and water skiing. Have fun playing horseshoes or volleyball in the backyard, or perhaps you might enjoy a movie at one of the last remaining drive-in theaters in the country. In the winter hiking, ice fishing and skiing are all on tap. If relaxation is what you came for, head out to the back porch to relax in the 7 person massage therapy pool, or curl up by the fireplace and enjoy a good book. This home has it all and is roomy enough for the whole family.

Tara House offers a master bedroom suite which features a king size bed, private bathroom with a 6' jacuzzi tub and private deck overlooking the lake. The other three upstairs bedrooms feature queen sized beds. One of the Queen sized rooms has a twin bed. These rooms share a ceramic tiled bath and offer either lake or mountain views. The fifth bedroom which is located on the first floor is handicapped accessible. This bedroom features a queen sized bed and a twin bed and provides a separate bath with 5' shower. In the living room there are 4 couchs, one being a sofa bed.

Summer brings out the best as you can go to Sterling Ridge Paintball, Ski and Tubing Center and Renaissance Festival only 4 miles away. A little further away is the Mountain Creek Adventure Park which is a great thrill ride ark and fantastic skiing in the winter. And did we mention wineries, shopping, antiquing and more. All in the beautiful Hudson Valley, New York's playground.

Tired of all the outside activities? Join the family in the game room on our new pool table or table tennis, cards or board games. Need another diversion? Just want to sit back and relax? Take a nap on the luxurious sofas or turn on the giant screen cable TV, or the gas fireplace, and unwind. Everything is provided. Just bring your linens and towels and you are off for a fantastic adventure. Or for an additional charge we will even provide linens!

About Kevin Lynch

My wife and I purchased Tara House during 2004 as a flip property that needed to be renovated. After the renovation we fell in love with the house and decided to keep it. It is the perfect family reunion home. We use it as often as possible, and enjoy different activities throughout each season. Our house is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your family and friends.

Kevin Lynch purchased this chateau / country house in 2004

Why Kevin Lynch chose Hudson Valley

We love Greenwood Lake. No matter what the season the area is alive with activities and natural beauty. The 9 mile lake has it all. Beautiful homes, great restaurants, friendly people, and honest outdoor pleasures.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Our favorites are the drive in theater, the wineries, the ice cream shop, and driving the pontoon boat to see the splendors of the area from the lake. It truly is a wonderful house and no matter how many times I go there it never gets old. In fact my wife is upset that the property rents as well as it does. We hardly get to use it anymore!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mr. Lynch:



Just wanted you to know we were out early this morning and all on our journeys home! We truly appreciated the rental use of your home as it allowed us to have a wonderful reunion with the family and spend time together 24/7. Something we have not done in years! We believe it was one of the best Thanksgivings we have ever had and look forward to doing it again in the future!!



As requested, all dirty linens and towels were folded up and placed in laundry room. (We did re-make the beds with the comforters only). Garbage and recyclables were left in the garage, dishwasher was put on prior to leaving, and door was locked behind us!



We trust you will find everything in order and in its place. (A family of 4 girls ages 40 - 50, with Mom over our shoulder to assure it looked better than when we entered it)!!!



Thanks again!



Let me know if you need anything else and will look forward to connecting with you again!



Sincerely,



Jackie

Wonderful home, wonderful owner!

  • 5 of 5

We had several families share this house for a total of 12 people. There was plenty of room and everyone loved the house. We had young children, teenagers and grandmothers in our group. We loved the lake and the pontoon boat was a treat. The kitchen is wonderful - and is better stocked than most rentals. We will rent this home again when in the area and I've shared the details with other friends who plan to visit. Tons of apple orchards nearby if you're visiting in the fall. Tara House is a great find. Thanks Kevin!

P.S. - The best place to shop for groceries nearby is the Price Chopper in Warwick. Very clean newer store with a high end feel, deli, bakery and eatery. It's less than 20 minutes away and prices and selection better than the walmart 30 minutes away.

LOVE the SIZE

  • 4 of 5

So we LOVED this home, its location and PIZZA Planet. The size was perfect for the large group ranging in ages 4-81. The home was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen and dining room were perfect and had everything!!!! My small, issues were the frig would not stay at temp. but that being said there was a freezing cold frig in garage a few feet away. The foldout couch had some springs missing so we could not use but that being said we found a mattress upstairs in the closet that we brought out. And last but not least we could not get the tvs to work in smaller bedrooms, but really not a big deal because we were out an awful lot. Im sure this all has been resolved because it was months ago and Kevin was very attentive to our needs. Other then those very small 3 things, our children loved the the game room, the back yard and the HOT tub. We had a blast and everyone had ample space. Thanks Kevin for kindness and accommodating all of us from TEXAS.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. Didn't know about the sofa bed! Will take care of right away. Unfortunately we don't live there. Hopefully some day I can retire there as we love the location and there is so much to do. We try to keep the house in great shape and its nice to hear constructive criticism so we can keep up the house in a shape that makes everyone happy. Hope to see you again next time you are in the area.

25th Girls Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this great house with its wonderful location. The first half of our stay we were 13 woman, all family members. We chose this house for our 25th Girls Weekend and it did not disappoint! On Monday most of our party left with the exception of 4, Kevin was fine with the idea of

our husbands joining us for the few remaining days. We had a great time on the pontoon (A BIG THANK YOU, KEVIN) the lake is beautiful! The houses around the lake are beautiful, we enjoyed exploring the area. Go to the beach, it's small, but offers a lot! They had a band playing on Friday night, unfortunately we missed it. A few girls went to the driven and said it was fun, especially since they hadn't been to one in decades. We went to two of the restaurants in the area, Planet Pizza a little pizzeria, that easily accommodated our large group. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The other restaurant, Emerald Point has a great atmosphere and good food. Sit inside or out, we did both. If your sitting outdoors you'll be overlooking the lake, what a great view.

We went to Mountain Creek for the day to the water park, what a fun time. We would love to get back in the winter to enjoy the cold weather activities. There's plenty to do, either at the house or in the surrounding area.

Now to the house, it has plenty of room. The sleeping arrangements are just as said. The master bedroom is huge and 2 of the girls shared the room with the mothers sleeping on a comfy air mattress, they brought. Not that it was needed, we just preferred not to open the sofa in the living room. The Kitchen is also huge, you'll find everything you'll need. Great layout. Plenty of parking. The house offers so much to do, however we enjoyed each others company so much we didn't even get to the ping pong, or pool table. Maybe next time!

nursing friends weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have been planning a getaway weekend for a few years and this was our first time to Tara House.

This house was very comfortable and with 5 bedrooms everyone was able to have their own. We really enjoyed the large living area and kitchen.We had a great day in town shopping and enjoying luch. The owner was very easy to work with and very responsive to all emails. Everyone agreed that this would be our annual location for all future weekend getaways. We look forward to next year!

Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Tara House over West Point's Ring Weekend - our Cadet just LOVED the spacious home and it was the perfect distance away from USMA...not too far to go back and forth but far enough that he felt like he was getting away. The Greenwood Lake area is beautiful, with lots of nice restaurants and places to visit. We enjoyed a cruise around the lake on the pontoon boat and cooked some great meals in the HUGE kitchen. All of the bedrooms are big and comfortable, and the owner was thoughtful and attentive. We would love to come back again!
