Enhanced Clean
This host committed to Airbnb's 5-step enhanced cleaning process.
Beautifully remodeled and updated lakeside cottage nestled in a horseshoe of woods on Kemah Lake. The large lawn takes you down to the water's edge of the "quiet" lake - no motors here; canoes and paddleboards in the summer, ice fishing and skating in winter. A log burning stove keeps the cottage warm and ambient all winter long.
Access to two private beaches featuring year-round lake activities - canoeing, swimming, etc. Enjoy wonderful lakeside evenings less than 90 minutes from New York.

The space
This fully updated and stocked cottage is perfect for your lake adventure. Set up for families and great for summertime bar-b-ques.

Kemah Lake is a beautiful private and serene lake. Hikers, bikers, horse lovers, baseball lovers, and stargazers are all welcome! There's fantastic hikes nearby, including Appalachian Trail, Delaware River walks or kayaking, and Childs Park just 20 minutes away. Beautiful walking, biking, horse trails and many other scenic lakes nearby. We are near the Sussex County Fairgrounds and Skylands Baseball Stadium. The nearest towns are classic Milford, PA and Newton, NJ (if you need to run errands such as grocery shopping, there's a Shop Rite and a Walmart).

Lake Kemah is approx 2.4 miles around, perfect for biking and jogging.

Nearby Lafayette Township features the largest antique center in New Jersey - The Mill. Visit Bog Water Jim's, a personal favorite, with well-curated curios, furniture, and art, and for a bite try the nearby Millside Café, a recommended spot for breakfast or lunch (cash only).
There are hikes and pathways along the riverside there.

Classic Milford, PA is a 20 min drive and features shops and great food, such as Bar Louie in the historic Hotel Fauchere. The patio is great for brunch or dinner in summer.

I’m an Englishman in New York with my wife, daughter, son and two dogs. We love our home and neighborhood. We bought our lake house to keep a sense of country living and peaceful weekends. It’s a wonderful place with room for our kids to roam and tons of activities year round.
