About Rose Russo

This house has been in our family for 25 years and we purchased it from our in-laws in 2008 because they were selling and we couldnt let it go. We have four children who all grew up swimming there, skating there, skiing nearby, hiking trails...growing up like we wanted them to, in the great outdoors...spying on birds, snakes, deer and rabbits. At the same time we had all the comforts of home as we are not quite the 'rustic' types.

Rose Russo purchased this house in 2008

Why Rose Russo chose Swan Lake

This property is great because it is SO EASY! The lake is literally off the back deck. The house is virtually maintanence free. Everything is on one floor (except for the ping pong table and foosball table in the basement along with the washer and dryer) The basement is unfinished but great in a pinch when you need to be inside.

What makes this house unique

The view of the lake from the living room, kitchen or dining area is terrific in every season at every time of day. Its a great place for summer BBQ and partys or winter festivities and skating.

Exactly what the doctor ordered!

  • 5 of 5
My fiancé and I spent a few days on Barnabee Lake to get away from work and city life for a bit. We saw Zac Brown Band at Bethel Woods (which we found so easily and without traffic thanks to a detailed little guide in a blue binder full of information about the area), hiked about 3 miles to a waterfall in Parksville, BBQed, roasted marshmallows by the fire pit, fished (caught a few large mouth bass, trout, and some smaller guys), paddled around the lake, visited Prohibition Distillery in Roscoe and explored some restaurants (HIGHLY recommend Rolling River Cafe - wow!). The house itself was very clean and comfortable. It was easy to make ourselves right at home. Rose was extremely helpful and was happy to help suggest things for us to do. It was very peaceful and relaxing. Can't wait to return... Thanks for everything Russos!

Very Nice Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here for 5 days - Rose was great as far as telling us what they had there to do and loved it! Beautiful home with everything you could think of. Very relaxing - used the firepit for smores and got a lot of use out of the paddleboats and canoe. It was very clean and we lucked out with the weather.

Lovely house!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I enjoyed this cosy, well-appointed house on a pretty little lake. It was comfortable and we found everything we needed there. We felt at home right away. We loved eating our meals on the deck, barbecuing, swimming, using the paddle boat and watching the sun set over the water.
For those who like hiking and don't know where to go, we recommend the outdoors store in Livingston Manor; the lady there can recommend hikes and draws very accurate maps to help you find places of interest. Very near the house, try Walnut Mountain Park, which has charming trails and beautiful views.

THE BEST!!!!

  • 5 of 5
This rental couldn't come more highly recommended. Rose is so sweet and was always there to answer any question I have.

The home itself, is truly remarkable. Right on the lake, very pretty and with a ton of amenities. There are several kinds of boats to take on the beautiful Barnabee Lake, as well as ping pong and foosball. At night, it was great to relax by the fireplace. We had an amazing time and can't wait till the next time!!

Thank you Rose!

Owner's Response: Haha I guess you caught "big bubba" as grandpa affectionately calls him. I agree, for the distance from the city, it feels very far away.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
Hello! the Russo's cabin was exactly what we wanted. It perfectly fit six of us and we were lucky enough to get 6 inches of snow the day we arrived. It has everything that it advertised and anything that we would have needed for a quick weekend in the woods. We would definitely come back. thanks Rose!

The best part of being up here is being here at the house. Not far in any direction will bring you to fine dining, eagles nest, hiking trails, antiquing, concerts at Bethel Woods...so much to explore. We would recommend lunch or dinner at Rolling River Cafe in Parksville and a must see little town is Livingston Manor and Fly fishing capital Roscoe!
