I live in the city but appreciates getting away from it all and respecting nature. I enjoy making my guests feel comfortable and welcome at my home.
Owner purchased this House in 2005
Why Owner chose Town of Highland
I purchased this beautiful vacation home to get away from the busy NY City life on the weekends. I enjoy making my home available to travelers looking for a relaxing, quiet, private, scenic mountain and lake experience. This home is suitable for weddings.
What makes this House unique
Easy, close access to the water, plenty of privacy, great nature views and screened in porch allows you to see the wildlife on the move early mornings. Huge Anderson windows allow you to feel at one with nature!

Stayed here for the weekend with a few other couples. The house is in a great location, very clean and up to date. The property is also great with an outdoor fire pit down by the lake. Will be back again.
BE AWARE: COMPLETE PROPERTY MISREPRESENTATION!
We were so excited to spend a family weekend at this "luxury" house and we're SO disappointed that basically the entire house listing description is a LIE!! You cannot swim in the lake due to snapping turtles, mud and the fact that it's fully covered in lillypads. There was no one on site to fix the broken hot tub and all the air conditioners had something wrong with them(i.e) one leaked, one wouldnt stay on, one smelled). The house was dirty and smelled like a dingy basement and was not at all something I would describe as luxury. The silverware was not clean. Everything was gross. Shower outdated and wouldn't stay in shower mode. The stove only had 2 working burners. If you are looking for a nice time with your family, please do your selves a favor and do not rent this house!!!
The owner initially agreed to fairly compensate us since no one was on hand to help but then went totally silent on us. After multiple follow ups, he finally responded and falsely accused us of having more people than agreed upon which is completely ludicrous and plain not true. It is very obvious the house has not been maintained.
We take all reviews seriously and have addressed the truthful and accurate issues in this review.
We fixed the leak on the air conditioner.
The dock has been extended another 25 feet to bypass the unusually thick seasonal lilipad growth. The swim platform is located in deeper water and is great for diving and sun bathing.
Our hot tub was and always has been functional as that is a major attraction at the house.
We have clients on their 8th consecutive annual visit.
We had a great time. The house was stocked well and in prime location to the lake. Wildlife everywhere. Would recommend.
The Perfect Weekend Escape
We had the most amazing weekend at your cabin! The sprawling property provided so many activity options - and we took advantage of all of them! We spent our days swimming or playing in the yard and our evenings grilling up dinners and making smores around our massive bonfire.The house was beautiful with all the amenities we needed and more. All of us had room to spread if we wanted - especially with seemingly secret little decks tucked all around the house. But, it also provided an awesome open great room to gather together with access to the outside deck that made our evenings absolutely wonderful. Another great bonus was the screened in porch when we wanted to escape mosquitoes. The weekend was truly perfect. The only bad moment we had was when we had to leave. We will definitely book again.
Separately - I also wanted to mention that Earl was an absolute pleasure to work with - always available and helpful when we had questions. He went above and beyond to make this trip special for us. Thanks Earl!
Family from CT
The view was great. Perfect yard for lawn games. Five people is a comfortable amount. The upstairs bedrooms were very clean. The living room furniture was not comfortable or clean. The hot tub was nice. Good home for relaxing.
Heaven at the eldred house
This house is just heaven it was clean very up to date earl was outstanding to work with me and my coworkers came up for the weekend we did not want to leave I had the master bedroom open my door every morning look out and seen this beautiful lake it takes your breath away
The area is a mountainous country town in the Catskills. There are a number of lakes nearby with good restaurants, biking, hiking trails, fishing and various outdoor activities. Water rafting on the Delaware river is 6 miles from the house. The famous Eldred fishing preserve is nearby. This home is suitable and perfect for weddings.
