Overview

About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

Our Family Cottage has been tastefully updated as a four season weekend and vacation rental destination. The Lake is known locally as Summit Lake, is approximately 45 acres in size, has less than 25 cottages on it and is a private community. Approximately 45% of the shoreline is and will stay undeveloped via an easement held by the Delaware River Conservancy.

Upon arrival you will find off street parking for up to three cars. Motion detection security lighting illuminates the parking area, steps and deck. The deck wraps around the front of the cottage to provide a covered porch with comfortable seating and a great view of the Lake. Once inside, we provide a Visitors Guide that includes menus from most of the local restaurants and brochures for local activities.

The kitchen is fully equipped and includes a family size electric griddle and waffle iron for breakfast. Depending on the season, dining can be at the kitchen table or outside on the deck. The lower level includes a covered patio with table and a hammock nearby. In the unfinished basement we store 2 mountain bikes, men's and women's golf clubs and 2 sets of aluminum frame snowshoes for guest use. Adult and children's life vests are also available for using the canoe and row boat.

Summertime sunsets are special and can be followed by a lakeside campfire and marshmallow toasting at the outdoor fire pit. Whether its the fire pit in the Summertime or wood stove in the Winter, we provide a supply of firewood.

Quiet, calm retreat from city life

  • 4 of 5

This is our second stay in five years and we had a great time reading books by the fire, going on snowy walks, cooking (pro tip: definitely bring all the ingredients you think you might need!) and relaxing with our 5-month-old daughter. Hope to come back up when the weather's warm!

Warm and spotless cottage. Wonderful place for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect. It was beautifully decorated,clean and the owner supplied us with wood for the wood burning stove and charcoal for the grill. It is about 20 minutes to elk mountain and the skiing conditions were amazing. The lake is beautiful and the 3 feet of snow made for a lot of fun. We want to come back in the summer to enjoy the warm weather toys.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. The cottage is well put together, clean and has everything you need. While it was a little cold when we visited, there are also plenty of water toys that would make a warm weather visit to the lake a lot of fun. We enjoyed the wood burning fireplace, outdoor firepit and walks around the lake. We hiked up to the top of Elk Mountain (about 15-20 min. away) and enjoyed dinner at the Lakewood Lodge. The owner was helpful and responsive.
