LAKESIDE COTTAGE-NEW YORK CITY 90 MINUTES-

Branchville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7-8)

Welcome to our charming rustic lakeside cottage on Lake Owassa in Northwest New Jersey. The cottage (The Woodbine) dates back to 1921. You need not drive far from New York City to find a great vacation spot. On the other hand, we are no more than 1 1/2 hours from the city. (We often go into the city for shows and Yankee games!)

The Woodbine is lake front and directly connected to the dock, only 25 feet from the front porch, by a shaded wooden path. Enjoy swimming, canoeing, kayaking or rowing in the boats at the cottage. There is a great screened-in wrap-around porch with a large dining area, an indoor dining room for more intimate dinners and an eat-in kitchen. All of the bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and can comfortably accommodate two guests. One of the bedrooms actually has three single beds. The view across the lake is of the Kittatiny Mountains and the Appalachian Trail. It is wonderful to enjoy dinner on the porch overlooking the lake as the sun sets on the ridge.

We have vacationed around the country in homes and condos and know what kinds of things are important to renters. Plenty of dishes and mugs for meals, towels for the lake, extra linens and blankets, listings of local restaurants, shops for 'antique-ing', rainy day activities list for adults or kids (including lots of games and videos/DVDs in the cupboard). The house is also child-friendly, with plenty of room on the porches for playing. Fishing is also fun at the lake as people often pull out good sized bass and pickerel.

There are many festivals and the New Jersey State Fair (you can visit their website to check out the dates) that are held at the Sussex County Fairgrounds which is only 5 miles from the cottage. Some of the more popular are the Crawfish Festival (Hugely popular with wonderful food and music!), Garden Shows, AKC shows, horse shows and of course, the state fair.

The cottage is heated and available as a 3-season rental, from early May-October 31st, on a weekly basis. We have a three night minimum from September 10-October 31. Spring is a lovely time to be at the lake. Summer is warm and the sunsets can't be beat, but the Fall with all of the leaves changing color is nothing short of spectacular! Sorry, no pets allowed.

We are now taking reservations for the Summer and Fall of 2014 and all dates in 2015 season. See below for pricing information. Returning guest discount available, multiple week discount available.

We accept PAYPAL.

Guestbook comments from the owner
We were at Woodbine recently. The cottage is lovely - very quiet, and the amenities are great. We enjoyed the lake, the canoe, and the kayak. The screened porch is fantastic! We went to NYC. The trip was wonderful. I would recommend The Woodbine! We had 8 adults in our party, and plenty of room for

all! Great vacation!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
I recently planned a party for my brother and some friends. We were looking for a nice outdoors weekend. The house was great. It was very quiet and relaxing and the provided boat, canoe and 2 kayaks were great for spending time on the lake. We also went paintballing and mountain biking. Each was only about 30 minutes away. I want to thank the owners for being easy to work with and definitely plan on staying again sometime.

FAB VISIT

  • 5 of 5
We had a brilliant time at Woodbine. It was beautiful, peaceful and private. We loved the dock out on the lake and we spent most of our time there eating, reading and swimming. The house was amazing. Everything was as described: well stocked, clean and comfortable. The owners were welcoming and very helpful. We had two deliveries and they were so helpful with both. We're coming back and we would definitely recommend it to others.

FABULOUS!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is a little slice of heaven! We stayed for the week and it was downright perfect! The cottage is rustic and antique - and being an antique lover - it was perfect! The wrap around porch is priceless. The owners are great! They were always available to help and answer any questions. The location is wonderful too! We enjoyed swimming, fishing, boating (canoe and rowboat), kayaking, sightseeing and quiet nights on the dock. The dock is literally 20 feet from the house - so the lake is in your backyard. The neighbors were friendly and the whole lake is quiet and serene. At times, we were the only people out on the lake fishing or swimming - it is so relaxing. The location is the best. You can jump in the car and go to other state parks and go antiquing in Lafayette. Everything is close and convenient. I highly recommend a week at The Woodbine! During our week there we had the most memorable time and made memories to last a lifetime! Go - you will not be disappointed!!

EXCELLENT FAMILY VACATION.

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful experience and had lots of "quality time" with our family. There are very few distractions, and that is exactly what we wanted. The cottage is surrounded by trees, and sits right on the lake with a cool breeze always blowing through. We were there during 7 consecutive 95+ degree days, and we only had to turn the A/C on at night. There are so few people around that you feel like Owassa is your own private lake.

-We are happy your family enjoyed the cottage. There is almost always that breeze here that makes the lake so delightful. Some days it is truly as if you were at your own private lake. Thanks for choosing us for your family's vacation!
