My husband and I were raided in Manhattan, NYC. We've enjoyed escaping to the mountains of Sullivan County for decades. We were fortunate to have found and renovate Lake Jeff cottage which allowed us the freedom to leave the hustle and bustle of NYC and unwind in the peaceful setting of Lake Jeff cottage. Our son is in college and it's more difficult to get away these days as a family, which is why we decided to share our home with you.
Ann Freedman purchased this house in 2001
This is very special property. My husband's family have enjoyed the town of Jeffersonville for two decades. The people are friendly and the town is a quaint country town just one mile from our home. The tranquility, the lake, the bald eagles and the amazing view will warm your heart and melt your stress away as it does for us. We've enjoyed many a holiday at our cottage and have some very special family memories here. My son and nephews learned to swim, fish, ice skate & sled on Lake Jeff. We've had many a friends and family members gather at our home to swim & BBQ in summers as well as ice skate and ice fish during Winter months. We feel truly fortunate to own one of Sullivan County's hidden gems. We hope have the opportunity to experience all that Lake Jeff cottage has to offer.
We fell in love with this property the first time we stood in the living room and experienced the million-dollar views. While the house was in great need of renovations, the setting was absolutely perfect! After years of renovations, we were able to create an oasis for our family to enjoy for years to come. Fishing, swimming, rowing and relaxing by the fire pit can be had just steps outside the door. The beauty and serene setting affords you the opportunity to relax and unwind. During winter months the lake freezes over and the ground can be covered with 2 feet of snow. Winter activities are great fun and just outside your door. Sledding, ice fishing and even ice skating can be enjoyed from the property. There's a family-friendly skiing facility just a short drive from the cottage as well. Be sure to visit our website for additional photos and information about Lake Jeff Cottage.
We had a wonderful time at your cottage. We did a lot of fishing off the dock and on the row boat. We caught a lot of good sized perch. We found a road side farm vegetable stand nearby and enjoyed lots of fresh corn.
We also had a trip to Skinner's fall and enjoyed the tubing in the river. Even my 3 months old daughter dipped her toes in.
We found your cottage very comfortable and well furnished. Kitchen was very tasteful and conveniently stocked with all items necessary. We loved that you had so many lawn chairs and different level surfaces outside, so we can all choose our favorite spot to drink coffee and watch the lake. My 3 year old daughter sure loved being outside.
Thank you again for sharing your lovely place. We all had a very comfortable and relaxing week.
and thank you so much for fixing the WIFI so quickly.
Our family including 9 people celebrated New Year Eve 2017. Everyone did really enjoy the time being in this cottage!!! This place is incredible! Fresh, clean house, rooms full of light made us to feel comfortable like at home. We had unforgettable days of fun in this house. That was really amazing time which will always stay in our hearts. I do really advise everybody to spend some days there and I am sure you will like it!!! We loved this house and hope to come back this summer!!! You ask me what to do there? All depends on you guys, there are plenty of activities around! Thank you so much Ann Freedman.
We booked this beautiful getaway for the Christmas Holiday and could not have asked for more. Clean, warm, and well taken care of house by the lake. There was nothing we missed and besides the adults, the kids had fun as well. It was great in the winter but I am sure in the summer it will be even more fun with the lake right there.
Overall we had a very pleasant stay at this home. The place was clean and had the right amenities for our group. The house is big enough to be comfortable for our group of 7.
We could not have been happier with our stay at Lake Jeff! The owners took great care to see that we had everything we needed, from all the comforts of home to detailed information about the area. The home was clean, comfortable and absolutely perfect for gatherings with extended family or quiet time alone. The lake, beaver, bald eagles and deer and fishing kept all of the family connected to the outdoors. We LOVED it!
Property was immaculate. Everything was accessible. If I were to nitpick one of the bedrooms was missing a cable remote and the little lamp in the living room was really not working, kept flickering. But when all was said I am really nitpicking. Our visit was 100% positive and I have no problem recommending our entire experience.
I was a little skeptical about renting a house over the internet but I needn't have worried! The house was immaculate from the sheets to the well manicured lawn. We were in town for a sales event and rather than put everyone up in a hotel for the weekend, I rented Ann's place for my staff. What a great idea! Everyone LOVED it. It was clean, well stocked, beautifully furnished and felt very "homey' and relaxed. If you're looking for a lakefront getaway, you really should try it! It's awesome! Bob L
