Extraordinary home on a private ISLAND in New Jersey's largest mountain lake -- 'hot, hot, hot' Lake Hopatcong. It's a lakefront vacation rental you'll talk about for years. There are 18 homes on the island, all a footpath away from each other.
No boat? No problem. Rent an extra-large dinghy (holds six+ people and is about $350 for the week) with an engine on the back from Dick Dow's Marina or a 20' pontoon boat from San Bar Marina by the day, week, or month ($$$). You deal direct.
House sleeps 11, with two snoozing in the bunk house. Tweenies and teenagers prefer roughing it in the bunk house.
Private Island Rental: One of 18 homes on this 40-acre island. This vacation cottage rental was built by a wealthy jeweler who was a consultant in diamonds to Tiffany's in the early 1900's. Pinehurst, as the Hartdegen family named 48 Halsey Island in 1902, can hold its own among unique vacation homes.
How Do You Get to Halsey Island?: Boat! You can rent a spiffy, large dinghy with sturdy engine on the back, and parking is thrown in on the main land. You can rent pontoon boats, sail boats, and other watercraft at marinas around the lake.
40 Acres of Woodland: You are never isolated on Halsey Island. There is a lovely wooded trail in the interior of the island and all islanders are welcome to use it.
