About Robert

My name is Robert and after years as a home builder I now manage 5 rental properties on a full time basis.

My wife and I love to stay in and share our properties with other families and groups who want to enjoy and be respectful of the beautiful homes and life that we all have!

I can always be reached via email and text and usually reply within minutes to all inquiries, questions or issues.

I look forward to having you as my guest for your next vacation or getaway!!

Robert purchased this lodge in 2002

Why Robert chose New York

I am a hands-on owner and travel between my primary residence in Port Washington and Hunter Mountain every week to check on and maintain my properties... and along with my cleaning crew and local handymen do our best to keep everything in excellent condition for our guests!

This lodge was built in 2002... It was the 2nd log home I built bringing in approx. 50,000 pounds logs from B.C., Canada.

Log homes give off a 'feel' of calm and clean... A Zen-like relaxation that adds to your time away from the daily grind.

There is no sheet rock or plaster board anywhere in the house. I have used only natural woods and stones... The only plastic to be found is the light switch plates.

What makes this lodge unique

Location, Location, Location...!!!

When was the last time you vacationed on your very own private peninsula with over 750 feet of waterfront and Conde Naste 5 star views?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Robert,



It was absolutely wonderful. We had a great time - very cozy with the fire place. The kids enjoyed the game room and the outdoors. Everyone - from my sister's 2 year old to my 70 year old mother - had a good time.

Everything was as promised. Thank you for helping make our family get together a positive fun experience!

My kids (teens) want to come again when we can ski or swim...



Thank you for being so friendly and reliable,

Toshu

Great house, very pleasant stay.

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Beaver Lodge for a family holiday getaway and had a great stay. Everything is as pictured and the property is very large and secluded. Robert was extremely accommodating and we had no complaints whatsoever. We would love to come back in the summer to take full advantage of beautiful outside space.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house to host our annual family Christmas since no one has a house large enough for our group and it is closest to the majority of our family and those traveling had a great place to stay. It snowed the weekend we were there so the kids got to do some sleigh riding. The only thing I would have changed was a larger kitchen for all the cooking we had to do, but otherwise the house fit our needs perfectly. It's a well maintained, clean house. A lot to do, especially for the kids. Robert is great to work with and very responsive. The grounds are awesome and I wouldn't mind coming back in the summer to take full advantage of the outdoors. The whole family was very happy. Thanks, Robert!

Great house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home for New Year's Eve - three couples with kids ages 11 months - 8 years old. We had really great time.

Location is gorgeous - perfect for winter, and summer. Older kids had lots of fun on snow sleds on slopes behind the house. Robert was a pleasure to work with.

Perfect house for a group getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have rented Beaver Lodge a few times now as it never disappoints. The house is perfect for a group getaway in the mountains. There are multiple beds for a large group and a huge backyard for tons of activities. It's also fairly close to Hudson where there are several shops, restaurants, and hikes. Robert is wonderful to rent from as well. Super responsive and helpful - he even extended us an early check-in as we had taken the day off. Highly recommend!

We had a great weekend at the lake house.

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed at the house while we were attending a wedding. The area is beautiful. The leaves were changing and it was a perfect fall weekend. The house had plenty of space for everybody. We had four children along and they really enjoyed the boats and the game room . There is plenty of space for everybody. House is well cared for and easy to find. We would definitely stay there again if we wanted to visit the Catskills.
