About listing

Year-round getaway about an hour from New York City. Waterfront property with a dock for your boat or jet ski and you can cast your reel right from the yard for the many varieties of fish in Greenwood Lake. Great room with comfortable couches and dining table for six as well as a grand fireplace with candles for a cozy evening. New furniture, beds, and appliances. Winter is great at Greenwood Lake with the Winter Carnival at Breezy Point, ice fishing on the lake, and skiing 10-20 minutes away at Mt Peter and Mountain Creek. Both offer snow tubing as well and Mountain Creek has zip lines, an alpine slide, and other summer activities. Breezy Point (very good American/German food) is right next door and The Helm, recently opened, is a fantastic bar and grill just just a quarter mile down the road. A short walk or drive will get you to the village of Greenwood Lake for even more dining and entertainment options including the Summer concert series and events at Morahan Waterfront Park! Are you visiting the area to shop? Do your shopping at the Woodbury Common Premium Outlets and enjoy relaxing on the lake just 30 minutes away after a busy day of chasing deals. For hunters, this is a great retreat to retire to after a day of hunting nearby Sterling Forrest. Enjoy the lodge like great room with a grand fireplace after a day in the woods.

    This was our first vacation at Greenwood Lake and we had an amazing experience, the views from the apartment are just gorgeous, the frozen lake was spectacular. We took the kids skiing at Mt Peter and it wasn't too crowded, it was a perfect day, they had so much fun they didn't want to leave. We can't wait to return in the summer and experience beauty of the Lake and the beach. Thank you Bryan!! Eunice Cassidy 31 January 2016 - 16:23:00

    This house was perfect. We went away on our yearly weekend getaway and could not be more happier. The communication with the owner was perfect. He responded immediately to all our questions. When we showed up at the house and noticed 2 rooms did not have A/C as indicated on the home description, he noticed the listing had a mistake from his winter listing, and took it upon himself to show up and install the units personally. He was very helpful and knowledgeable with local activities. The dock and kayaks were a great hit. The weather was perfect and we relaxed, played volleyball during the day (we brought along a set) and relaxed by the water eating BBQ throughout our stay. We hope to return next year and highly recommend this home to others. 21 July 2016 - 22:33:00

    This lakefront escape absolutely perfect for me and my family -- the location, the condition of the home, the comfortable beds, the cleanliness, the side yard, the kayaks, the TV's, the internet, the washer and dryer, the air conditioned bedrooms... At first, I thought that I wouldn't like being so close to the marina -- it turned out to be exactly the opposite. Our boys loved the excitement and being in walking distance of the Village, they enjoyed the freedom. My husband, a golfer, loved the side yard for his early morning rituals. I loved hanging out on the deck watching the happenings of the lake and marina. Having grown up, in the summers, on GWL, I basically knew what I was getting onto -- a throwback to the 60's-70's. We will be back next year. Thank you Bryan for making our only vacation of this year so comfortable and relaxing. Exactly what we all needed. Joan Green 04 August 2016 - 13:16:00

    So many great things can be said about this property. We enjoyed our stay at the end of December, all 10 of us! It is perfect for a large family. Everyone had a comfortable bed or pull out couch to crash. The 2 kitchens had everything you needed for large meals as well. The best part of the house was the location, it was very peaceful and stunning at the same time. This is also a bird watchers dream. We had many ducks visit everyday for coffee and throughout the day, as well as geese, gulls, and a majestic eagle! We would absolutely love to come back in the summer for fun on the lake! Thank you for welcoming our family to your beautiful home. The area has all the conveniences and NYC was about 90 minute ride. Brian, the owner responds quickly. We never had a reason to contact them while in the home. 19 January 2017 - 00:29:00

    I just spent a long weekend here with my 4 cousins and our spouses and everyone left having a great time. No only does this house have everything you need (plus some) but the view is fantastic and the owner is great to work with. There's a town a mile or so down the road and there are many places for day trips just a short drive away. I highly recommend this house. 21 February 2017 - 15:45:00

    Bryan's home was the perfect retreat. The home had everything we needed. The kayaks were a hit! We loved the 2 kitchens and made use of the BBQ's. Bryan was responsive to all our questions throughout our stay!! My family had the best time! Thanks again. 20 August 2017 - 16:27:00
  7. We attended a family wedding nearby and were turned on to this Villa by one of the local businesses. Can't say enough good things. Beautiful views of the lake and spacious enough for us (three families) to sleep comfortably and entertain prior to the big day. The only drawback was that we were not going to be in the area long enough to fully enjoy. At least this time - could definitely see us back this way. Kudos to our host as well for being accommodating and answering all our questions promptly prior to our visit. And lastly, a shout out to Four Brothers Pizza for an awesome food delivery. They are nearby and make a great pie! 18 April 2016 - 17:16:14

    We spent a fantastic getaway for the family and I. As we are from NYC, it was truly amazing that within a short drive of downtown Manhattan, we found ourselves lakeside and smack in the middle of some truly gorgeous terrain. The location of Lakeside Escape couldnt be better. With the living room and one of the bedrooms looking out directly over the lake, the view was clearly the star of our weekend. The home is also centrally located for all the area has to offer. In our case, the winter activities were easily accessible and close by. About 5 minutes away, there was tubing and skiing at Mount Peter. The surrounding area has some other great things to do as well. Nearby Warwick, for example, offered some great dining options as well as Pennington Farms a working farm offering brunch, fresh local meats and produce for sale and a beer garden. We attended the Sinatra Brunch on Sunday complete with a live band singing all the greats. The home is thoughtfully laid out with a generous kitchen equipped with everything we needed including dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine and a large refrigerator big enough to hold as much as we needed for my family. Downstairs, there is a laundry room with a washer/dryer and a folding table. The three bedrooms and bathroom are set apart so while we adults entertained, we werent risking waking up the children. Not to worry as well about forgetting your shampoo! The house is outfitted with everything we needed including: laundry detergent, shampoo/body wash, cooking spices, coffee and condiments, etc Additionally, as it was too cold to go outside at night, we made great use of the entertainment package that comes free with the house. The Smart TV has free access to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and a host of other premium channels and services including a great sports package. Free WiFi is also provided which came in handy as cell service was kind of sporadic in the area. The lakefront also afforded us an opportunity to see some fantastic wildlife. In addition to the morning visit of ducks, we also saw a pair of Herons crisscross the lake on Sunday morning. We are dying to come back during the Spring or Summer to do even more birdwatching. We will definitely return the Lakefront Escape soon. Maybe when its warmer so we can full advantage of the lake itself! I also hear that Sterling Forest has a Renaissance Fair in the Summer. 18 January 2016 - 17:59:40

    Where do I start... First off, the View!!! this gorgeous 3 bedroom top floor villa literally sits over greenwood lake! The breath taking views of the lake and mountains from the entire top floor are spectacular! From the moment you step into this Villa you immediately go into "vacation mode." This place is SPOTLESS! I am not one to just stay anywhere, due to the lack of cleanliness some places have but lets get one thing understood, this place is extremely clean and well taken care of. The beds in each of the 3 rooms are unbelievable, all equally as comfortable with plenty of pillows and blankets. The dining room and living room are warm and comforting, they also have 2 sets of french doors that blow open onto a wrap around deck the length of the home. The full functioning kitchen is great for summer BBQs, plenty of room to cook and store food. This place is PERFECT for a group of couples or a family looking for adventures on Greenwood Lake NY. Plenty of room for entertaining and enjoying everything the Home and surrounding area has to offer. The house is also located within minutes to many great restaurants and bars. I give my stay 5 Stars and this wasnt even during the summer! I 100% suggest this home to anyone looking to getaway from it all and take in everything Greenwood Lake has to offer! ~the only downfall I could find was that there is only 1 bathroom for 3 rooms, but I think we can all get over that! 20 January 2016 - 17:25:29
  11. Thoroughly enjoyed this retreat on the lake with my family. Beautiful view of the lake, quiet and peaceful. This house is very clean and accommodating for any size family - the owner even stores games for your enjoyment ! Although our stay wasn't long and the weather was not perfect the entire time, the view was still wonderful. Especially enjoyed morning coffee on the deck with a peaceful early sun - wait till you see the nighttime view with the moon on the lake ! Visited a local winery and had fun browsing the Antique shops in town. Would highly recommend staying in this location - thank you for a wonderful memory ! 04 April 2016 - 11:26:00

    All I can say is WOW! This rental was beyond my expectations. I have stayed in several rental homes but this one is by far the best. The house was immaculately kept and welcoming. I rented the up and down units for a long week end with friends and they all agreed that it was one of the best rentals they have ever stayed at. All the amenities were modern and the dcor was beautiful. All of the rooms had comfortable beds. Morning coffee on the deck overlooking the lake was amazing! With a German restaurant right next door, how can you go wrong? I also need to mention that the owner was an exceptional host. He provided all the information we needed for a great stay. To his credit, I forgot a pair of sunglasses which he mailed right back to me. That is what I call service. You won't regret this rental! 14 June 2016 - 12:12:57

    i cannot say enough good things about this vacation property. We held a family reunion here for 12 people and it slept and hosted everyone so comfortably. The house was immaculate, the furniture attractive and comfortable, the kitchen well-appointed, and there were plenty of towels and linens to go around. We spent a long weekend swimming off the dock, kayaking in the owner-provided kayaks, and hanging out on the deck and the grassy lawn alongside the dock. We hiked a bit of the nearby Appalachian Trail one day as well. You can walk to the next door restaurant, and rent paddleboards at a facility just beyond that. The owner provides everything you could want, and also sends a very helpful and detailed list of amenities and nearby stores so you know exactly what you are getting. He is very responsive to any questions as well. This is an outstanding rental and I highly recommend it. It surpassed our expectations in every way. 02 July 2016 - 12:24:13

    The house is perfectly located right on the lake and is ideal for a small group or a large family. It's clean, has a good kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, TV, wifi, laundry and more. We used both units during our stay -providing 7 adults with lots of space to sleep and play. The deck overlooks the lake-an ideal location to start and end the day. We enjoyed touring our section of the lake by kayak and walking into the village. It was a perfect place to just relax with family and friends. 07 August 2016 - 22:56:53
  15. This is honestly the best place to enjoy a few days away from the hustle and bustle of city life! Besides the ideal locale and beautiful view, all the comforts you could ask are there from the plush, comfy sofas to the beds that you can simply melt in at night (or for a great afternoon nap). The little town in which the house is located has some really great restaurants and a creamery up on the mountain with some of the best ice cream flavors around. Enjoying a hot cup of coffee on the deck in the morning is the perfect way to start any day. And on top of all of that, the owners of the property are two of the most kind and generous people you could ever hope to meet. I can't wait to go back! 21 August 2016 - 13:47:48

    Loved our time here! The amenities and the location are wonderful. You can hear the water lapping up against the docks, see the moon rise over the mountains across the lake, kayak, swim, hike (the Appalachian trail), or just relax on the lakefront decks or lawn. There are tennis courts a short drive away (Warwick). There are really good restaurants in GWL and Warwick and one of the best ice cream shops (Belleville Creamery) in between. Bryan (the owner) has done a great job outfitting the house with new beds, comfortable furniture, kayaks, life vests, flat screen TVs, good appliances. He is accommodating and responsive. We rented on Greenwood Lake last summer, but this house is much nicer. I cannot recommend it enough! We really hope to return next summer! 30 August 2016 - 03:54:41

    From the hurried bustle of the busy city life, we walked threw the front gates to an wonderous quiet Solitude overlooking the calm waters of this lake view property. My family can not wait to return. There is so much to do in the area we need to plan a longer stay. Thank you, for the experience and we are so grateful we found this place. See you guys on the next trip to this great property. 18 September 2016 - 02:43:49
  18. Our visit was fantastic! We loved the property. The trees were just starting to change colors. It was so beautiful. We woke up in the morning and literally could see fish jumping out of the water. We will be back! Great for families or a nice quiet get away. Neat town as well!! 14 October 2016 - 15:47:00

    We stayed here for a 20th Reunion at West Point. The drive to and from West Point was not bad at all (35 to 45 minutes). The area is beautiful and there were plenty of restaurants close by. The home itself was perfect for our group allowing us to have kids go to sleep in the lower suite while the adults stayed up a little later in the upper suite reminiscing about the old days. Wished we could have stayed longer and spent more time at the house, but our reunion weekend was very busy. Thanks for the great place. Hope we will be back to one of your 2 properties in the near future when we need another vacation :) 17 October 2016 - 14:34:00

    We enjoyed two beautiful days at Lakefront Escape. The house is so lovely, so perfectly situated, that within minutes of arriving, the hectic hustle and bustle of the city seemed like a distant memory. The house is charming-- comfortable, clean, and cozy. Everything we needed for an enjoyable stay was readily available. As nice as the house is (and it is), it's the outdoor space that makes this place so special. There are two yards, one that's right on the water, and a wrap around deck/porch/balcony that offers spectacular views. I could have spent the entire two days on that deck. We enjoyed lunch at the Helm, a very nice restaurant quite close to the house, and breakfast at The Village Buzz-- I highly recommend both. We also enjoyed spending a little bit of time in Warwick, a pretty and interesting town 15ish minutes away. It seems like there's quite a bit to do in the area year round-- hiking, skiing, antiquing, etc. I'd love to come back and experience this area in general (and Lakefront Escape in particular) in all seasons. Two days soaking up the serenity of Lakefront Escape was exactly what we needed (though I would have been very happy to add several more days). This was the perfect place for a relaxing getaway-- we can't wait to go back. 20 November 2015 - 03:02:46
