We live in New Jersey, just a hop, skip and jump from beautiful Lake Hopatcong, but never vacationed there. Usually my family and I travel all over the east coast of the US to vacation. However, this year being tired of the rigors of the long ride and time lost traveling during the precious days of our vacation period, my wife and I decided to stay local. What a great Idea my wife had. We found this lakefront cottage with all we could ever possibly want! Beautiful lakefront views to wake up to, a place to dock our boat, great fishing, a cozy clean comfortable house that for one week we were proud to call our HOME! There were plenty of great places to dine, many lakeside. The most treasured experience of the vacation were the friendly neighbors that welcomed us so warmly and helped guide us through any way they could. I'm sure that we will be seeing them soon and I can't wait to return.
