Quiet Private lakehouse set down on 2 rare rock bluffs giving you a majestic water view just like it was in 1939. Extra Lg Great room w a huge fireplace. The great kitchen surrounds the chef. Big hot tub, Rowboat with canopy, 8 kayaks, Treehouse, Neverending Lakeside windows, docks, 1 hr from Manhattan w Eagles & vast wildlife like you were in the deep woods. Clean, unspoiled lake full of fish. Never had gas motors. A Mountaintop lake above the ski area. Stargazing!
Perfect for get-togethers.

The space
The house was originally a log cabin with several additions added including a great room.
Enormous couch system will seat everyone and sleep plenty.
This is a private lake community and we will register you as associate members included in the cost.
Our daughter is 6 years old. We have been making the house safe for her all along so expect many safety systems in place. We raise guide dogs for the blind. A family vacation without their beloved pets is incomplete. We think you should bring your well-behaved housebroken pet with you.

Where you’ll be

Highland Lakes, New Jersey, United States

Exclusive private lake community. Deeply proud of our rural wildlife even though we are an hour and 5 minutes from Manhattan. We are dedicated to
keeping the lake and our nature preserves pristine.
This is a nature lovers trip. Not a wild place like the Jersey shore but wildlife fun adventure in NorthWest Jersey.

My husband and I have a 4 year old who we want to have the best of both worlds. She spends part of the week on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and then comes to this extremely rural lake only an hour and 5 minutes away. This experience means the world to us. I'm from a farm in Poland and my husband, a native New Yorker grew up skiing on this mountain. We love this natural setting especially that no gas motors have ever been allowed on this lake. Every type of animal is here. You might think you would need to drive several more hours to enjoy something like this. We are surrounded by nature preserves and only have a short drive from the City. It's a miraculous area. We volunteer a lot. This house is the only private home on the regular tour of Ronald McDonald House for kids with Cancer. They come to this house 3 or 4 times a year. We have over 30 Breast Cancer events. We have volunteered at Sundance for 13 years. We have been counselors for Camp Better Days (kids who lost parents in 9-11 and this house will host future reunions. We donated our 1st house on the lake to the New York City fire department for a year after 9-11. We raised 4 Guide Dogs for the Blind and often host blind get togethers here. It's been a wonderful ride so far. We have had many friends and family come here so we know how to host.

During your stay

I'm always available to answer questions by phone or text. In fact I love a text that asks if we have something. We usually have it and I'm glad to save them the time looking.
