About Jody

My husband, Ira and I are New Yorkers. He grew up in the Bronx near Yankee Stadium and I grew up in Mount Vernon. As a child, Ira's family would spent summers in the Catskills and he had a special memory of being in a motorized boat with his Dad and friends on a beautiful, grand lake. When our kids were about that age, he drove us to find 'the lake' and we did!

Jody purchased this house in 2006

Why Jody chose West Milford

The moment we stepped foot on the deck and took in the incredible view of the lake, we fell in love. To this day, the deck is our favorite part of the house. It is so peaceful and lovely.

What makes this house unique

Along with these views, it is a very functional, easy house. The open floor plan downstairs, makes it very comfortable for visiting, sharing a meal or a movie and just hanging out. The three bedrooms upstairs are roomy with views of the lake.

We are so excited that we have been able to redo the kitchen with Cesar Stone counters, new cabinets and appliances and hardwood floors downstairs!!

My Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay at this lovely lake house was even more enjoyable than the first, primarily because this second visit was longer. My initial review, entitled "Delightful Getaway", says it all. This house, in this very special location, truly is my new Happy Place. In fact, we are in the process of planning our next few visits. Quite frankly, the only downside of staying here is having to leave!

Sitting on the dock of the Bay

Stunning views from back deck looking over Greenwood Lake. Property was as described and very comfortable. Our Aussie dogs loved the fenced in area. Friends who met us there loved the setting. We would definitely come back!

Delightful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our two fur kids, had a wonderful time at this lovely lakefront home. The view was amazing, we spent countless hours looking out at the lake from the beautifully appointed deck. The house had everything we could ask for and much more. Jody was terrific, and very accommodating. We have already booked a weeklong stay in the fall which cannot get here soon enough, and we fully intend on returning as often as possible. if, like me, you have ever thought about living on a lake, you would be hard pressed to find a better location. I have found my happy place!

Just back after a week at this beautiful house.. We did not want to leave. Having coffee watching the sun rise each morning was the highlight of my week! Wish I was able to attach some of the amazing photos we took!! LOVED IT.

A lovely lake home!

  • 5 of 5

The week I just spent with my family at the lake was delightful. This house was very comfortable and the setting- on the lake- was very special. We enjoyed eating outdoors (yes, I should have used bug spray more often on my feet) and the gas grill was a pleasure to use. Swimming right off the dock was perfect. Thank you for a lovely home that we enjoyed for the week!

Perfect place for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this very cozy home during Columbus Day weekend. Two families including five adults, a toddler, a baby and a dog all felt comfortable in the spacious, clean, and well equipped lake house. The views onto the lake are breathtaking and there are plenty of hiking trails nearby. It was a perfect place to reunite our families and spend time together.
