Review for Lakeview Estate

  • 5 of 5

I had an exceptional time staying at this spacious and lovely property. The space comfortably fit my group of 25 people. We chose this property for a weekend ski trip getaway (traveled from New York City) and could not have been more pleased with the location, the friendly and hospitable staff, and the awesome amenities. The owner was also super personable and always made herself available to speak through anything, at anytime! The service was unparalleled!

Highlights include: two living rooms and cooking areas, the AMAZING hot tub, and the awesome bar area with games. Certainly a place for entertaining!

Would certainly visit again and encourage others to stay here.

Fantastic ranch house getaway from the city!

  • 5 of 5

Came up recently for a birthday weekend away from New York City with a large group of friends. Gale the owner was absolutely fantastic and very much available 24/7 for anything we needed. The property itself is located on a beautiful former horse ranch, the building is a converted modern barn and looks way bigger and larger than the pictures show! The hot tub room is great, especially during the winter. I definitely recommend that you check out the property, explore the wooded areas and make sure to build a campfire either by the lake or behind the house. The barn itself is sectioned into two fully functioning areas with two sets of kitchens, ample bedrooms and bathrooms. When it says it fits 20 people, it fits everyone comfortably.

Can't wait to go back myself, so I highly recommend this place, we all had a blast!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic long weekend!! LakeView is everything Gale said it would be and more. The home is more like a resort and could not have been more beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous and the house was perfect for the 8 of us. This is our 2nd time booking and the upgrades were fantastic. Hot tub addition was a great touch especially since it snowed while we were there. We are making arraignments to return for a 3rd time...this time with the entire family!! If you are looking for a country getaway in luxury.. This is the place!!

First and foremost, Gale is awesome to work with! She is extremely easy to get in touch with, even last minute while you're there! The grounds are beautiful. The house is well kept with a large amount of space. It is perfect for gathering. We go with 30 people ranging in age from 25-35. No one ever feels cramped and with the amount of bathrooms there are never issues! We love the rooms on the loft. They are small yet cozy with the beds built into the wall! If you want a great view with more of a modern room, go upstairs the other side of the house, another bathroom, full kitchen and balcony! The walk to the lake is not far at all. It's small, but quite a workout to kayak across. Gale can have it arranged that kayaks etc will be there waiting for you. Perfect fire pit setup, large yard for lawn games and PLENTY of parking for those groups that all drive separately. Great rafting down the river within 30 min. A grocery store and liquor store nearby for last minute runs. wifi and phone are available, but the view and quiet make you not want to use them! Highly recommend for a big party weekend, family reunion or even a girls weekend. We had a blast! Hope to go back again!

Perfect for our needs

  • 5 of 5

When we needed a unique place to host our Men's Retreat, we looked long and hard for a "cabin in the woods" type of place that also had plenty of outdoor options. This property fit the bill perfectly! We needed a comfortable place to sleep and eat while also having lots of space to spread out and explore. One does not have to be religious to be able to have nature touch your soul, and that's exactly what this property provided for our young men. Between time out in a boat on the lake, hikes in the woods, games of football on the spacious field, a trip to the nearby reservoir and time around a camp fire, our souls were fed. Highly recommended for any group looking for seclusion and outside options.

Perfect Birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to stay!

I booked this house for 30 of my friends for my husbands 30th birthday. We had a blast! The house sits on a huge piece of land which makes it very private. The lake was one of our favorite parts. It's close to the house and everyone enjoyed swimming!

Now, the house.. This is a one of a kind house. So much space for all our friends. The loft bedrooms were quiet and secluded. The hot tub is a nice plus!

Both kitchens were used to cook the meals. I would recommend bringing louder speakers. Since the place is secluded and there are no close neighbors, you are able to play loud music.. However the speakers in the house weren't loud enough once we had 30 people chatting in a room, it was hard to hear the tunes.

Everything else was above our expectations. The staff was super friendly on arrival and departure.

I can't wait to go back!
