Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for a big group with kids. Great open spaces for the group to gather, and the upstairs bedrooms were perfect for putting the kids to sleep while the festivities continued. Having an extra kitchen and the big grill were also a big bonus. Gale was incredibly attentive as well. The only snag was that we had some issues streaming movies on the wifi, but it was a minor glitch.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is great for a large group get away. Awesome seclusion while not really being that far away from "civilization." It is very comfortable with lots of outdoor options. Highly recommended!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent family summer vacation at this spacious estate. The property is located on a beautiful former race horse farm, the building is a converted modern barn and looks way bigger and larger than the pictures show! The lake was wonderful and the use of the boats was a huge plus for us. The owner was very nice and accessible. We had a large family group and we never felt cramped and enjoyed the bar and game room. We will definitely return to enjoy this wonderful property again.

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!!
