Just 90 miles from New York City... right smack in the middle of nowhere. A comfortable getaway, great for family fun in a private lakefront community, one block from the private lake, a short walk to the private beach, a short ride to Bethel Woods and the Monticello Casino. We are close enough to Bethel Woods of 1969 Woodstock fame to hear the music. So you might want to reserve tickets or schedule a special date. Bring your beach blanket, bike, kayak and fishing pole. (You will need a NY State Fishing License.) I can also provide adults with two kayaks, a row boat (great for fishing) and bicycles (4 adult and 2 children size). I can provide you with a list of attractions that match your style. A fire pit is located on the property for campfire smore memories.
The house is bright and airy with lots of windows. Located in the center of its own block so you have plenty of room for outdoor fun including a Bull Frog Pond. Central heat and air conditioning makes this house comfortable in any season. Fireplace for warm in winter nights. September and October are the months for fall foliage colors. Fall's cool crisp nights and bright warm days make them the perfect months for outdoor activities, like apple picking or roasting marshmallows around the fire pit. Hardwood floors with area rugs and tile in the kitchen and baths. Modern appliances in the fully-equipped kitchen. TV in the den has easy viewing from couch. Super comfortable Tempur Pedic queen bed in the Loft and a pillow top full bed in the master bedroom both with plenty of pillows. And an outdoor sauna to chase the winter chills.
I provide passes to the private Lake, Beach and Tennis Courts. Responsible adults have access to 2 kayaks, a rowboat for fishing, a small sailboat and bicycles (4 adult and 2 children, children, helmets too). Eagle watching tour map (Binoculars provided) and kayaking adventure tour map to discover the hidden waterfalls. In summer months there is a washer in the cedar sun house shed and a clothesline for drying.
The house is located in a small quiet lake community best enjoyed by walking around the lake. Once you get relaxed after walking to the beach and waterfalls you can plan a real hike through the wilderness to the reservoir. (you can also drive there)
Being in the middle of nowhere does come with some compromises. Once you get to the house you can walk to the two very close restaurants, convenience store, the beach and lakes and waterfalls but other than that you will need a car to get around. Sorry there is very limited public transportation. That is why New Yorkers call this 'The Country'!
Just treat it like you would your house. No smoking in the house. Clean good-natured pets are allowed but must be on a leash when outside and cleaned up after. All young kids must be supervised or the bears may eat them.
