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

Heaven on earth!

  • 5 of 5

When looking for a place to call home away from home, I didn't realize that perfection awaited me this 4th of July. This place was heaven! Truly, with hammocks for peacefully reading, a land and water trampoline to bounce into the water or look at the stars, kayaks and a canoe to enjoy the serene lake, warm water to swim when it got too hot, and I tried wake boarding again after years and popped right up! This place was the best platform for every type of fun and some sweet memories I'll always cherish! There were board games inside, the firepit got used every night, plus we made/grilled some incredible meals! I absolutely loved it and slept so well! You won't regret staying at this particular slice of heaven and I look forward to the day I can come back! Until then I'll be daydreaming about that hammock and the two chairs at the end of the point - I enjoyed my coffee there. <3 Thank you! Plus the owner was so helpful and made staying there easy breezy. Robert goes above and beyond in every way! Can I give it 6 stars?!

WOW what a great place for our family gathering

  • 5 of 5

A wedding of my grand daughter in Hudson. My son and 2 boys from Hawaii, My daughters children from Orlando and my son and his 2 children from Miami spent 4 wonderful days at the house. Could not have found a more suitable place with so many amenities available. 5 star rating as far as we are concerned. Thanks for the opportunity to express my feelings.

Gorgeous property with everything you could want

  • 5 of 5

The House is beautiful, the lake magnificent and dealing with the property owner was a distinct pleasure. The community is family oriented, so if you're looking for a rowdy, party house, look elsewhere. But if you're up for getting back to nature with your family and friends, I cannot recommend this property enough. 3 generations of my family had an incredible Memorial Day weekend enjoying all it has to offer: luxurious accommodations, pristine landscape, great lakefront activities, barbeque, fire pit & lots of indoor activities, as well.

Wonderful weekend at the lake.

This was the perfect place for family to gather to celebrate our son's graduation from college. The house accommodated everyone comfortably and the setting was gorgeous!

Lovely escape, consistent experience

  • 5 of 5

The Beaver Lodge is always a nice escape from the city. This is our second time renting this property for an annual getaway for a group of moms and our children. The house offers plenty of space, so even in case of bad weather, such as last Saturday, the kids can be fully entertained downstairs with all the games, while the adults relaxed and cooked and napped on the upper floors. This house has everything you need -from extra blankets and pillows, to random spices and dishtowels, to make it a great stay. We cooked amazing food, enjoyed each others company, and luckily also got to enjoy the boats when the rain stopped. Thanks again, Robert!
