About the property

This house is new to the rental market. I just purchased and furnished it new.

Enjoy a romantic getaway in this very cozy cabin near the lodge and mountain. You can also bring the kids for a family getaway. There are two bedrooms, and the house can accommodate 5-6 people. One bedroom has a queen bed with a one-of-a-kind rustic, timber headboard made from sassafras. The other bedroom has two twin beds. Each bedroom has its own heat and thermostat, a ceiling fan, lamps and a large closet with luggage rack. The futon sofa in the living room opens to a full-size bed that can sleep two. There is one full bathroom and a full kitchen. There is a compact washer & dryer. The house is air-conditioned. There is a wood-burning fireplace and a fire-pit off the deck, so bring a supply of firewood and enjoy the fire inside and out. There is a gas grill on the deck and patio furniture to enjoy the autumn air and foliage.

There is one TV in the living room with basic cable, Apple TV and a DVD player. There is a selection of games to play.

I also have a larger house about 3 miles away that accommodates up to 12 people. The HomeAway listing is #4491675.

Contact me for a rate for the full ski season. Jan 1 - March 31.

About Chuck Sommers

I enjoy renting my house for guests to enjoy. I spent many summers working at my uncle's motel and bed & breakfast in Misquamicut, RI. Those summers sparked my interest in hospitality and the experience helps making this a great place to stay.

Chuck Sommers purchased this chalet in 2017

Why Chuck Sommers chose Lackawaxen

I fell in love with this house the minute I stepped inside. It is so warm and cozy with its fireplace, wood floors and real wood paneling, high ceiling and plenty of natural light shining through the many windows. This house is perfect for a couple enjoying a romantic getaway, or bring the kids for a family vacation. Why rent a huge house when there's only 2 to 5 of you? Everything is on one level. All of the furniture is rustic, log furniture of pine, sassafras and birch. The pieces are beautiful and one-of-a-kind; all from Cabin Creations by Marina in Sandyston, NJ.

What makes this chalet unique

If you have a large group, I also have a three+ bedroom house about 3 miles away that accommodates up to 12 people. This second house is only 1 mile from the lakeside beach and is at the far end of Westcolang Lake.. Look for HomeAway #4491675.

looked like something we would see in a movie. The snow and Christmas lights was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The house was cozy and perfect for a family of 4. The owner had board games which was great for our evenings. The house has been decorated with Christmas lights and we had cookies and chocolates to welcome us which was an instant hit with the kids! The location was awesome. We were about 10 minutes away from the slopes. We can’t wait to go back!!! Thank you Chuck for making this an amazing way to bring in the New Year!
