Enjoyed Our Stay - Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed at this home in May of this year (2014). My wife and I were visiting the area, in particular we wanted to be close to the original Woodstock music festival site. This home is about a 5 to 10 minute drive from the site so its location was perfect for us.
The owners were wonderful to work with, cannot emphasize that enough. They were helpful in providing info on the surrounding area, events, things to do, and so forth.
The home was clean, and located right on a lake in a very pretty area. Each morning we had deer in our yard! My wife I enjoyed our stay and would absolutely return to this home again.

Couldn't have been a more perfect weekend!

Couldn't have been a more perfect weekend!
  • 5 of 5
I really cannot recommend this home or this renter highly enough. Our group was a party of 9 late 20's/early 30's New York professionals (and their dogs) looking to get the heck out of the city for the weekend. Kevin was always quick with responses and was super helpful with suggestions on what to do in the area, which we ended up not even checking out this time because the house and surrounding trails were just too awesome and there wasn't enough time in the day!

The kitchen was well stocked with cookware and dishes and in cooking 4 large meals for 9 people, we never were short a utensil or cookware item, which I can tell you is a masterpiece all of its own in a rental home. The pool table (the main selling point of the house for our group) was a beautiful table and the pool cues were actually very nice pool cues, which is always awesome to stumble upon unexpectedly. The putting green also added some unexpected fun for the guys in our group, and surprisingly the dart board wasn't used, but it was there, too! The non-pool players in our group had fun with a puzzle of a New York City terrace that's missing one piece (you'll see what I mean) and a camp fire on Saturday night with smores was really the icing on the cake. Actually, no, the icing on the cake was the stunning fall foliage because that was absolutely fantastic. But that was completely circumstantial so the credit can't all go to Kevin :)

We look forward to returning to this wonderful home in the future, and if you're thinking about renting it, go for it. You won't be disappointed.

Thanks so much again for the great weekend, Kevin!!

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This house was exactly what me and my 4 friends needed. It was a quiet neighborhood with a beautiful lake that was perfect to run around every morning. Everyone was super friendly and we took out the kayaks one day and floated in the lake enjoying the sun. I needed to destress from the hectic life of New York city and this was the place to do it.

The town was awesome- some of the best BBQ I've had in a while down by White Lake.
Kevin was a super nice guy and was beyond helpful with emails and advice on what to do and where to go.
The fire pit was key and the grill was great. All in all I had a great time.

Relaxing and fun!

  • 4 of 5
This is a great place. It was immaculately clean, and very comfortable. The lake is so quiet without motorboats, and we took advantage of the kayaks as much as possible. The kitchen is incredibly well-equipped, but if you want to eat out, you'll find excellent places nearby. I would definitely recommend this house!

Lovely and quaint cabin, with many personal touches

  • 4 of 5
We rented Bethel Lake House to celebrate an extended family Easter and our son's 1st birthday. the house is very clean, and family friendly with spacious 3 bedrooms, great kitchen and living room. our kids had a blast exploring all the toys, games, and books (very well stocked!!). we had our first egg hunt ever; walked around the lake; grilled and even made s'mores in the fire pit! we were super lucky with the weather--being able to bask in the sun on a porch and enjoy the silence gave us a nice break from our hectic lives in the city's hustle and bustle. Kevin was extremely helpful and available at a drop of a hat for any questions or concerns. loved the house's decor and personal touches which give the house a unique character that tell a story about who the owners might be. everything (except the tile floors) are new, and recently renovated. i have recommended this house to a friend of mine who might vacation here in the summer.

Half Marathon Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed a great weekend at the lake house. Kevin was very easy to work with, and provided lots of information about the area. We were busy with preparations for our half marathon runners, but found time to enjoy a walk around the lake, a carbo-loading dinner, and comfortable sleeping arrangements for all in our group. Thank you for helping make our weekend memorable! We hope to come back and enjoy many of the local hikes! The Bethel Market Cafe was fantastic for lunch!!!!

The Town of Bethel was brought to the world's attention in 1969 when nearly 500,000 people gathered at Max Yasgur's Farm for 'Three Days of Peace and Music'. The Woodstock festival was held here in Bethel, 5 miles from our lake house, not in the Town of Woodstock.

In 2006, Bethel Woods opened on the original Woodstock site as a state-of-the-art performing arts venue. In early 2008, a multi-media Woodstock 'interpretive' museum opened near the old Yasgur's Farm to complement the concert space, which has hosted the New York Philharmonic, Wynton Marsalis, Diane Reeves, Chris Botti, the Goo Goo Dolls, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Lynyrd Skynyrd/Marshall Tucker Band, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens/Arlo Guthrie, Earth, Wind & Fire, the Boston Pops Orchestra, Steely Dan, the Allman Brothers, the Jonas Brothers, Heart, Journey, Cheap Trick and Brad Paisley to name a few.

If you can not make the concerts it is still a great place to visit and tour the Woodstock Museum
