The Lodge is owned and built in Colorado/Swiss alpine style by its owners who are golf members and will proactively manage the property and any issues that might arise from just up the road.
Graham purchased this lodge in 2005
We were attracted to this southerly-most part of New England in the late 90s having moved from the UK to work in Manhattan. It reminded us of the most scenic part of ('Olde') England - specifically, the Cumberland 'Lake District' but without all the traffic!
Now we can offer probably the top golf residence (and most cost-effective golfing package) on a beautiful private course close to New York. Phil Michelson praised the course as 'very beautiful and challenging' when hosting a Pro-Am qualifier day.
The clubhouse is fully equipped to keep you fit - swimming pool, gym and tennis - and will serve meals throughout the season (April-December).
The Lodge itself is tastefully furnished with quality beds etc. It is strictly a four bedroom design but having been built with a huge fully finished lower level basement (with large bathroom), can be easily converted to six-bedrooms and still retain more than 2000 sq. ft. of great room / living space, a gourmet kitchen, up to 12 person dining room / open-plan entertaining / common areas.
The Lodge is unbeatable if you not only love golf but enjoy the peaceful ambience that only your own 'mountain cabin' or ski lodge can deliver.
Uniquely, the Club @ River Oaks has only 60 residential sites, all about 2 acres and compared with other golf communities, positioned unobtrusively blending into the beautiful surroundings.
We chose the location for the Lodge on a promontory overlooking the pond and were able to position the Lodge for optimum sun light that enters the cathedral windows at dawn and dusk and with porches that provide sunny and shaded outdoor living at all the right times.
Whether entertaining or seeking a restful break at one with nature and in the peace of the countryside, the ambience of the Lodge is unique to this type of timber and stone property and not usually available so close to New York.
The owner is ready and able to accommodate special requests whether involving extra beds, grill equipment or, to help maximize your vacation time, just advising you on the multitude of possibilities and local services that might improve the quality of your stay.
