Now THIS is a Lake House! Built in 1989 the entry reveals its key feature; a beautiful, clean & quiet lake where motor boats and jet skis are NOT permitted. The sprawling living room and deck are only 30 - 50 feet from the 145' of lakefront and massive decks that look out over the lake. It can be both a tranquil escape for a couple, a fun family summer vacation venue or a fun party house on the water for a group of friends. Everything you need to completely relax or prepare for numerous outdoor adventures or indoor relaxation.

The home comfortably sleeps 8, in beds and offers many other amenities & features:

THIS PROPERTY IS IDEAL FOR FAMILIES, ATHLETES & FOODIES

TRADITIONAL SPORTS: Golf, Fishing & Tennis opportunities abound.

ROAD CYCLING: Thousands of miles nearby

RUNNING ROAD & TRAIL: Same as cycling, unlimited.

SWIMMING: It is on a PERFECT lake for open water swimming. There are no motor boats or jet skis allowed. SAFE & QUIET!

TRIATHLON: This home is a triathlete's training paradise. Triathletes will appreciate the pristine lake for swimming, hundreds of un-crowded rolling country roads for riding and unlimited road or trail running miles to be had 'out the door'. Thousands of more road and trail miles can be found near by. Oh, and there is this race 15 miles away (if that) on May 31.

YOGA: Yoga on the deck or in the living room (especially in the morning sun that drenches the lake side of the house) is a joy.

FOODIES: The big kitchen and dining spaces allow for a comfortable place to cook, eat & drink exceptionally well. Nearby farms and farmer's markets are an added bonus.

NUMEROUS NEARBY ATTRACTIONS & AMENITIES

Within the community there are two pools and 2 tennis courts. Multiple golf courses nearby too. See below for even more.

A nearby hotel, The Sullivan, has a nice listing here.

This is also a great place to sleep guests the house can't hold in beds.

2016 BETHEL WOODS CONCERT SERIES

Bethel Woods is where 'Woodstock' happened in 1969. It is 15 miles from the house. Lot’s of great concerts every summer.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS: http://www.bethelwoodscenter.org/performances-festivals/main-calendar-of-events

THE AREA

Is NOT ‘The Hamptons’ and that is what is appealing about it for many. Except for big events at Bethel Woods, there is not much ‘nightlife’ to speak of. We've enjoyed this home as a 'getaway' from 'the scene' for years because that is what it is 99% of the time. It is the Anti-Hamptons, no-scene, quiet escape from all of that.

About Kevin Joseph Bernard

As an athlete and a foodie I've enjoyed this house for my entire adult life. I miss it when I'm gone and I love it when I come back.

Kevin Joseph Bernard purchased this lodge in 1989

Why Kevin Joseph Bernard chose Catskills

PROXIMITY TO NYC and GREAT OUTDOORS is wonderful. Civilized private community with a several small town amenities and attractions nearby but also WILDERNESS near by too.

What makes this lodge unique

Lakefront!!!

Major tree cover means the house stays shaded and cool even in the summer.

One of a kind vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 6 weeks in July-August two years in a row, in 2014 and 2015. And we would have continued staying here if we didn't buy a vacation property of our own! If anything, this house gave us a taste and pleasure of owning a retreat outside of the city and encouraged us to plunge into ownership ourselves. The house has 4 vary spacious bedrooms on the upper level, each with its own bathroom. There is also a nice private TV room downstairs that can accommodate people, although we never needed it. There is an absolutely beautiful living room at the lower level with massive windows and the best view of the lake. There were always 6 of us in the house - 3 generations under one roof - and we always felt that we had plenty of space to get together and spread around. The deck was definitely the most favorite place for me where I spent countless hours reading, chatting, looking at the water. There is a lot of comfortable shade on the deck and around the house from the trees. It is very calm and relaxing. My son fished a lot there and very successfully. We also got an inflatable boat and roamed the lake. A couple of times we ventured to state parks around for hiking, but it is not necessary, you can just walk in the neighborhood. Kevin, the owner, is very responsive and accommodating. Very easy to deal with. We will definitely miss this Lake House, had so many great memories and beautiful pictures to show for them. You will be fortunate to spend your summer there indeed.

Truly an excellent experience all around

  • 5 of 5

The house is a phenomenal place for vacation. The lake is lovely. The house is equipt with everything you could want. The kitchen is extremely well appointed. Kevin was always available with lightning fast responses to any questions. Within a mile is a store that has basically everything you need (from groceries to hardware), restaurants, and a liquor store. Within a few miles is some excellent hiking (with waterfalls). We really enjoyed our time there, and will ABSOLUTELY be back !

Great House !

  • 5 of 5

This house is really beautiful ! It's much bigger than it looks at the picture. We stayed here for New Years weekend 2015-2016 and it was great. First of all we loved the view. Living/dining room has huge windows facing the lake. Second we loved wood burning fireplace. Kevin (the owner) was very friendly and helpful, he responded to all our questions right the way. The house has everything you need and more, it's bright and clean.

We enjoyed our staying here and will definitely come back during summer time
