This is the perfect retreat for those looking for an escape from the grind. We're located on a quiet and semi-private lake with a breath taking view of the Kittatinny Ridge. Just 90 minutes from NYC, but feels like a million miles!
Lots to do year round--hiking, skiing, antiquing, taking the kayaks out, apple picking...or simply relaxing.
The home is cozy and fun with a well-equipped kitchen, sports equipment, library of books, kids entertainment/toys, and foosball & ping-pong in the garage.

The space
You'll get the first view of our beautiful lake as you crest the long snaking driveway. The house is architecturally unique and is fairly open with 2 lofted bedrooms upstairs. The bedroom on the ground floor is fully private. The home can comfortably accommodate lots of guests. Kids (and even adults!) will love the big room with bunk beds, so invite family or friends to come and enjoy this with you. For those with children, there are Legos, art supplies, and assorted toys to keep them entertained. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment/food service and most cooking staples.

During the winter months, hibernate in our home with a book fireside, board games or puzzles, or movies on the TV. Or for the sporty set, make use of Shawnee, Mountain Creek, or Camelback ski resorts nearby. Afterwards, bundle up and light a fire by the lake or use our new hot tub for stargazing and warm conversations. For those who want to stay "connected," our fast wifi will suit your needs.

During the warmer months, take the kayaks out for a spin. You'll likely meet our beaver neighbors who swim about! There are a large number of parks (High Point State Park, Buttermilk Falls, Stokes Park to name a few) nearby to get your heart's fill of nature. The warmer season is a perfect time to grill on our BBQ and dine al fresco (with s'mores for dessert!).

On the four acre site, expect to see wildlife while you stay here. We've seen deer, foxes, geese, turtles and groundhogs on the property.

Look at the photos and read prior guest reviews. The top floor is rather open plan so if you are staying with multiple families or have very young kids and expect privacy or sound barriers then consider this before booking.

The check in and check out times are listed as such in case we get back to back bookings. Usually that isn’t the case and we can accommodate earlier check in or later check out. Ask at time of booking if this is something you would like.
