An autumn week at Highland Lakes

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I chose Michael's cottage based upon two criteria: it's proximity to NYC and the fact that it's pet friendly! We always try to book a property that is easy for our daughter to drive to from NYC and spend a long weekend with us. The Highland Lakes cottage worked perfectly. Thanks to the cleaning expert, Lisa, for having the home spotless upon our arrival. Thanks to Michael for excellent lines of communication throughout the entire booking process as well as once we arrived on site. Polly, the property manager, lives nearby and is there also if you happen to require assistance with anything. That being said, we found everything in and around the home to be exactly as described. The home's layout is nice. The beds are comfy. My husband especially enjoyed the large flatscreen t.v. We cooked meals indoors as well as grilling out on the gas grill. The fully fenced yard afforded us privacy while on the patio or around the firepit, as well as allowing us to have the dog enjoy the grass all week. If you require a washer/dryer they are available also. We visited a nearby state park, went to a few wineries and an apple orchard in the area. The grocery store is a very short drive away in Vernon. Paesanos pizza is excellent by the way! So thank you Michael for helping us have a wonderful stay and being available to answer any and all of our questions. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your home.

An Enjoyable Summer At This Highland Lakes Cottage

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is cozy, clean and comfortable and was well stocked with everything we needed. The location is great with a lake and all of its amenities a short distance up the hill. Though it feels you are out in the country, just two miles down the mountain in Vernon, you will find a supermarket, the post office, a drug store, banks and restaurants. The neighborhood is quiet and the neighbors are friendly and helpful. The owner responded quickly and efficiently to all of our requests. We enjoyed many good restaurants is the area, to name a few -The Mixing Bowl in Vernon and in Warwick, Blarney Station and the Chateau Hathorn (pricey but well worth it). Further south in Stanhope an excellent German restaurant, The Black Forest and far out in the woods near Layton on Rte 206 the Walpack Inn, a favorite with the locals and tourists. The Sussex County Fair was a treat as were the farmer's markets in the area, especially the one in Warwick on Sundays. We had lived in New Jersey most of our lives but had never visited High Point with its spectacular views of New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania. We would definitely recommend this property and, God willing, we hope to return next summer. Joe and Marilyn, Jupiter, Florida

Comfy house, great back yard and great owner

  • 5 of 5
Great and comfy house with everything you need for a short or long stay. Pretty park and lake at the top of the street, great supermarket close by. The house has an awesome back yard. There is a Ski park close by which turns into a water park during the summer very close to the house. There is a little store 1 mintute down the road if you forget anything at the grocery store. Also the Daycare in Highland Lakes is great.

The owner is very nice and was always there if you needed him and went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed for our six month stay. He was super attentive.

I would highly recommend 178 Highland Lakes Road to anyone considering a stay

What a great vacation we had!

  • 5 of 5
For 9 weeks, from end of May to the end of July, we stayed at Michael's Cottage in Highland Lakes, New Jersey. What a great vacation we had.

All what we can do is to recommend this place to anybody who wants a quiet place, surrounded by seven lakes and hills that you can explore by walking, driving, canoeing, etc. New York City is just 1 1/2 hours away, driving, or by bus, or by train. There are many small towns and cities around the area that we visited and explored. The Cottage itself has all the amenities that you need to enjoy your stay. Michael is a great landlord and Polly the caretaker is so helpful and nice.

So many restaurants around plus a great backyard with a gas grill where we cooked every night that we were not out. A great fire pit where we spent many enchanted evenings and nights, with a cozy fire and a sky full with stars.

So if you want a great vacation at very affordable rates, Michael's Cottage is the place for you as it was for us.

Sincerely, Hugo Cardona
