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 have been together for 26+ years, have 2 sons and 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,

Perfect rental, great experience

  • 5 of 5

Went to the Beaver Lodge with 9 others for my bachelorette party (I know...) and it was perfect. Everything was exactly as advertised if not nicer. Lots of space and plenty of beds. Super comfortable and right on the lake. Robert was efficient and communicative and made sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely come back again.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

Just rented this house for a 30th birthday weekend away! Our group was fairly large - 17 people. The house was absolutely wonderful! It was just enough space for our group, the three bedrooms and lofted area allowed everyone to sleep comfortably and in their own space. The weather was a bit chilly but we were able to still utilize the outdoor fire pit which was such a nice treat. There was plenty of room, games, movies, and things to keep everyone entertained for the weekend. The deck off the back of the house overlooking the lake as beautiful. Again with the weather being chilly the lake was not an option. However we were all in agreement that we must come back to use the lake/canoes. Saturday afternoon we ventured to Crossroads Brewery in Athens - only a 6 minute drive away! We had lunch there and would highly recommend. Robert was extremely easy to work with. He was prompt in his responses and easily accessible if needed. He wasn't present upon arrival but sent detailed instructions on how the house operates and what to expect. I would 110% recommend this house to any large groups looking for a weekend away!

Awesome Getaway.... Couldn't ask for anything more

  • 5 of 5

I held my husbands 40th Birthday Party here for the weekend and I could not have asked for a nicer house. The entire process of renting the house was seamless and Robert was so responsive to my emails. The view is absolutely breathe-taking.... even in March. There is a Cross Roads Brewery that we went to not too far from the house, which was a lot of fun. If you are interested in renting a house in the Catskill Mountains this is it...... Thank you Robert for having us!!!!!

STUNNING! What you see is what you get!

  • 5 of 5

First, the owner Robert is the best person you could ever deal with. From beginning to end. Flawless transaction. On the 2nd day we had a burst water pipe which we truly understand as the temperature dropped to -15 degrees. But what really impressed us, was that, Robert was so reachable and sent the plumber right away and fixed the problem.

Second, all 3 families were so amazed of the place from the moment we got out from our cars. Beautiful scenery, overlooking the beautiful lake, pine trees all around. Inhale the fresh air! The inside, was far more amazing than we expected. Everybody enjoyed the fireplace with our marshmallow and hot chocolate. Rooms are huge, entire house was spotless, kitchen is completely equipped, the place is so quiet. There's enough games, movies that everybody could enjoy. We have young ones in our group from ages 9-20 yrs old, and all wanted to stay longer!

Third, we all want to come back to be able to enjoy bbquing on the wrap-around deck, campfire outside and swimming in the beautiful sleepy hollow lake.

Thanks Robert for such an amazing host!

Winter Get Away at the Beaver Lodge 2016

  • 5 of 5

As the title suggests myself and a group of friends rented this property in Mid-January, we were all blown away with the hospitality of the host renter and the beauty as well as the amenities the property sits upon and posses. The house was spotless, comfortable and peaceful. The neighborhood and location is beautiful. Our group consisted of 10 people and it easily and confortably suited us. As listed there are nearby restaurants by the property, however our group decided to make diner for the two nights that we stayed and the kitchen had everything needed. What I was more impressed about than the house itself was the manner in which the renter owner conducted himself. A true host, I have used this site to rent property before and no one measures/compares to the the quality of perfessionalism shown. He was open to answering all and any questions and was completely adaptable to our schedule and more importantly just an all around good-guy. For anyone reading this as an avid user and renter if I was renting a property or revisiting the upstate New York area this is the house and the owner to rent from. I gave this property a 5 star rating because I've been renting property with friends and family in upstate NY from at least 2010 and this was by far the best. If your reading this review and have interest in this property book this house.

Robert never lets us down

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was absolutely amazing. There was enough room for all of us to relax comfortably. The place is very well kept and organized; wood was stocked, movie collection was on par, and the beds felt heavenly. If you are fortunate enough to was the sunrise in the morning, the backyard provides a phenomenal view. My friends and I had the pleasure of renting out a property from Robert last year and it's safe to say we are starting a tradition. Robert is incredibly resourceful, helpful, and an all around fantastic owner.
