Beautiful Home, Amazing Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Let me first start off talking about the house. This place is flat out AMAZING! Our group of 14 came here for a weekend trip to Hunter Mountain (~10 mins away) and everyone was in awe of the decor, quality of the rooms, and the kitchen. This place has everything, and the pictures are very accurate. All of the furniture is in new condition and the kitchen is extremely well stocked (we had a professional chef in our group and he was very happy). The basement is completely finished with a pool table and just a great place to lounge. Also, the house has great insulation (we came in late-Jan) and water pressure throughout. We are definitely planning on coming back to this home again. Everything is accurately described in the posting. I could not have asked for more.

Secondly, let me quickly talk about the owners. JoAnn is one of the best owners I've ever dealt with in renting a home (I've rented many houses / lodges over the years). She is very responsive and had everything down to a T in preparing the home for us. You can also tell that JoAnn & Scott invested a ton of money into this house. They manage several other properties in the surrounding areas, which makes her service that much more impressive.

I highly encourage prospective renters to select the Colgate Lake Lodge. You will look smart and will not be disappointed ;) Thanks again, JoAnn!

Comfortable and very well equipped!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here Presidents weekend with three other families (total of 15) and there was plenty of space for everyone. We loved that the kitchen was well equipped for the large family style gourmet meals. The beds were all very comfortable, and with each bedroom having their own thermostat, everyone slept very comfortably. It was a great ski vacation! Thank you JoAnn!

A worry-free weekend in an awesome house!

  • 5 of 5

I booked the Colgate Lake Lodge for two nights to celebrate my 30th birthday with some friends and the place met and exceeded all of our expectations. The owner was available and responsive by phone and e-mail and made sure all of my questions were answered and that we were comfortable.

The house was clean and well equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. There is lots of open space to gather and hang out throughout the house, both upstairs with the gas fireplace, gigantic stuffed GRIZZLY BEAR (!!), and dining table, as well as downstairs, where the pool table are bar are located. I spent lots of time over the grill on the back porch and was pleased to find that it was hooked up to a gas line (no running out of propane here!), and that grilling tools were available and stored nearby. The brand new hot tub out back didn't hurt either.

With Hunter Mountain and Tannersville so close by, we never had to travel very far when we left the house (not that we wanted to!). I will definitely be interested in booking the Colgate Lake Lodge again in the future.

Cozy winter vacation

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family holiday in the mountains. The inside was spacious enough to fit multiple families with kids. The open floor plan in the kitch/dining room and living room allowed for the family to stay together before, during and after meals. The downstairs was a great space for our children to play safely ( and stay out of our hair!) . But the real gem was the outside. The property is set up off the road and there is so much space for fun and exploration. Our highlight was finding a perfect sleigh ride trail along the side of the house. It was so good we really didn't need to leave to go snow tubing. Our family had a great winter holiday at the house, so much so that we are now considering renting it during the summer!

Amazing Time!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! Our extended family of 12 stayed with plenty of room! The house was spotless and had every amenity, including a pool table, bar, and Tv's. Also, Included individual heat in each room, which may not seem like a big benefit, but for my wife and I, it helps with sleeping when you have other people that may be too cold or hot. It was very close to Hunter and Windham and we look forward to visiting again next year! Thank you JoAnn!! 1
