    I came here for a girl's weekend, and there were 7 of us which the house accommodated just fine, there are bedrooms for 6 and 1 friend slept on the pull out. The kitchen is nice and well equipped, we made good use of the grill as well. The house is nicely private with lots of trees around, and the lake and dock are beautiful for swimming and canoeing in. We had a terrific weekend here! David is easy to work with, very responsive, and we had everything we needed to enjoy the weekend. 08 July 2017 - 19:00:00

    Spent 3 wonderful days here with husband, my college age daughters and our water-loving dog - so much fun! We spend most of our time on the water or reading on the dock. The house was wonderful and so well equipped for our dinners. So many attractive spots around the house and yard to sit and read a book or just relax. Would highly recommend this lake house! 13 July 2017 - 13:17:00

    Had a wonderful girls weekend with sisters and cousins as we celebrated a pair of 50th birthdays! House was well appointed, very clean and could not have been better situated for our group! 13 September 2017 - 16:49:00

    This house was everything I expected and more. The photos did not do this property justice. Also, David was a very thoughtful and available host. Everything was so clean and the kitchen was well appointed with any appliance or tool you might possibly need. My family of 4 had a wonderful time here. We loved the amazing lake views and sipping coffee or wine while sitting on the dock. We would most definitely return in the future. 25 September 2017 - 03:51:00

    The pictures do not do the house justice. It is beautiful, well maintained, and very clean. The kids loved swimming and paddling around the lake and our 3 dogs loved laying in the sun on the dock. We caught a number of fish off the dock including a monster large mouth bass! David was very friendly, responsive and easy to deal with. Highly recommend!! 27 May 2014 - 12:58:10

    My husband, two-year-old daughter, sister, sister-in-law, and our cousins stayed here one gorgeous weekend and had a wonderful family vacation. I was pregnant at the time and very close to my due date and this beautiful location offered just the respite we all needed. The house was perfect for us -- we were able to shop locally for groceries and prepare our food on the grill and in the kitchen. We enjoyed the lake and especially liked using the canoes. The owners were thoughtful enough to leave a box of toys that our daughter really enjoyed playing with. We would recommend this as a getaway for any family or group looking for a peaceful retreat. The proximity to home was another great bonus, we can't wait to go back! 22 June 2014 - 18:52:40

    Six Friends + A Beautiful Lakefront House = A Wonderful Weekend!!! Owner gave good recommendations about local attractions. You have to be there to experience it yourself. 24 July 2014 - 01:48:57

    4 friends and I rented this house for the 4th of July weekend - it was perfect! Very comfortable, very well organized, and charming. The space is really wonderful: outdoor grill, fireplace, tables on the site; lovely garden path down to the water, dock to sit on; and great porch and front yard for game playing. Would absolutely recommend this, and will consider going back myself. 25 July 2014 - 13:51:04

    We really enjoyed the home for our family getaway. The house was beautiful, picturesque and clean. No pet hairs, as promised by owner :). The balcony could have used a good sweep. The kitchen was well equipped and functional. If your family has young children, like ours (we had 3 toddlers), the stair may be a challenge so I would bring a gate. David is a very thoughtful host. He even took good care of us after we left!! I would definitely use this home again. I highly recommend it. 01 August 2014 - 03:26:51

    My group was three couples looking to spend a quiet weekend away from the city at a beautiful Lakefront property that was easily accessible. We got exactly what we were hoping for. After a short hour and 15 minutes drive we were unpacking in a modern yet homey, spacious and comfortable home. There was a very thorough guide to the area including hiking trails and amenities waiting for us along with a package of chocolate. Overall the owners made us feel very welcome and we had a wonderful weekend unwinding and relaxing. The lake itself was small and beautiful and the water was a great temperature for swimming. We definitely plan on returning next summer. P.S. Big plus for multiple indoor and outdoor sound systems. 03 August 2014 - 14:22:17

    Such a beautiful setting. My family had a wonderful relaxing time. The location of the lake house is perfect - with great views and terrific access to the lake. It was hard to leave. 12 September 2014 - 12:59:56

    Well kept, clean house with all the amenities of home (if not more). While the weather was uncooperative, we had fun cooking and utilizing the game nook. At night, we took advantage of the outdoor areas and sat in front of a nice fire. We look forward to returning. 07 July 2015 - 13:49:32

    The home is spacious, clean, and had every need covered. For us it was the much needed green space we were craving (and so close to NYC). The landscaping was beautiful, the tiger lillies were just popping open, the damselflies were in love, and we enjoyed the birdsong each morning. The swimming area was nice, great clean bottom, and set into a little grotto. Our chihuahua was in heaven sunbathing on the dock and exploring the yard. She even dipped a toe into the water willingly. This house is in a great lake community, with plenty of places to grab a bite, or groceries, or rent a boat on nearby at Greenwood lake (which we did!). We hope to make it back someday, and the welcome package is a very nice touch. Thanks for making this home available. 15 July 2015 - 15:22:31

    Loved everything about this place. Hosts could not be more hospitable! They think of every detail to make guests comfortable and at home. Little touches go a long way. Well maintained. Was so relaxing. 17 August 2015 - 11:05:22

    This was our second time staying and we loved it even more the second time. The house is so welcoming that you feel like you're staying with family. The owners are wonderful as well! We'll be back next year, for sure. 05 September 2015 - 14:54:16

    This is a charming and cozy 'home' not a 'rental property' and it shows in every thoughtful detail. Because its so well stocked you feel as though you just returned to your home. The pictures on the VRBO listing are spot on. The lake is great for kayaking/canoeing. Plenty of places nearby for other outdoor activities, and all w/in 75 minutes on weekday mornings/evenings by express coach #196 to the NYC Port Authority from the West Milford Park & Ride (less than 10 minute drive from the house) for less $ than you pay in tolls if you drive. The owners, David and Charlie are gracious and caring hosts who go out of their way to make you stay wonderful. I would return in a heartbeat. 27 September 2015 - 00:11:47

    We stayed here for our son's 30th birthday and the house more than exceeded our expectations. Our adult children made good use of the canoe and kayak (it was nice watching them play on the water as if they were 10 year old's). The property itself is quite large compared to other homes on the lake and grounds are superb. The boat dock was a favorite for morning coffee and evening cocktails. The inside of the house is not decorated like a typical rental, its very comfortable and well appointed; its obvious the owners, David and Charlie, take great pride in their home. We will be back! 18 October 2015 - 00:30:04
