Our family of 5 stayed at this wonderfully, large, clean and inviting lake house. While my youngest daughter enjoyed catching sunnys off the dock, at first with a line and hook and then with just a net, my older two daughters enjoyed paddle boating around the lake and exploring a "hidden" waterfall. When they tired they would head to the small, clean private beach where they would sunbathe and cool off in the water. This house offers beautiful direct access to the lake. We enjoyed our meals on the deck and even had s'mores around the outdoor fire. We know there are a lot of great things to do around the area. Unfortunately, our stay was too short to explore too much. We did however, venture to the charming town of Milford to attend Church services. Joanne the owner was very accommodating. She answered all our questions and amazing to work with on this rental. She even allowed us to bring our well behaved border collie with us. Even though the front of the house is close to the road the entire back yard is fenced so I didn't have to worry about our dog ,or our children,with the traffic. We are told the lake freezes in the winter. Can't wait to go back and see the landscape during that time. I don't know if I am brave enough to go ice skating but it would be fun to watch others try and warm up inside by the wood burning stove. It is certainly close enough for us coming from central NJ. We can't wait to go back and would recommend it to anyone looking to spend a relaxing time in a beautiful, clean location.
