Jeffersonville house description
Welcome to the Cottage at Lake Jeff. Located in the beautiful town of Jeffersonville, New York. Jeffersonville is located in the scenic Catskill Mountains, just two hours north-west of New York City.
Lake Jefferson is a private, 44 acre, non-motor lake. Lake Jeff cottage enjoys 100 feet of private lakefront with dock, row boat, lounge chairs and a large swim platform for your pleasure. Lake Jeff is a private lake with a private road leading down to the property. With only 9 homes having lake access and only one other home on our road, you have the feeling of privacy yet you are just a two minute drive to town.
While you may feel secluded you are in fact, just one mile outside the charming town of Jeffersonville. Jeffersonville offers a supermarket, restaurants, antiquing and shopping for your convenience.
Panoramic views of the lake from nearly every room in the cottage, make this charming 4 bedroom, 2 bath home a truly spectacular vacation destination.
Renovated in 2004, The Cottage at Lake Jeff. emphasizes high-end finishes for the discerning guest while still remaining true to it's rustic design.
The lake Cottage provides four bedrooms, two bathrooms and can comfortably sleep up to nine guests. The third floor of the cottage has the first and largest bedroom affectionately known as the "Bunk Room" featuring 3 -full size log beds. The Master Bedroom with a comfortable King size, sleigh bed is located on the second floor. The third bedroom has a custom bunk bed with a single bed over a Queen size bed. All of these spacious rooms take advantage of the beautiful lake views. Between both bedrooms on the second floor is a lovely newer bathroom featuring a spacious steam shower and beautiful mission style cabinetry. The 4th bedroom is located on the first floor. This cozy bedroom offers antique furnishings, and single bed with enough room for one guest.
The heart of this home is on the first floor which is where most of our guests spend their time. Featuring an open floor plan kitchen/living room, that has some of the best views of the lake, with sliding glass doors leading to the Bluestone terrace. The stone fireplace in the living room takes the nip out of the air on chilly days while you gaze at the lake through the floor to ceiling windows which are the width of the home. The newly renovated kitchen has stainless appliances and custom made pecan cabinets. Adjacent to the kitchen is a pantry a laundry room and brand new second bathroom.
This striking lakefront property features plenty of outdoor space with landscaped terraces leading down from the cottage to the lake. There are several different seating and lounging areas for you and your guests to enjoy with plenty of outdoor furniture for your pleasure.
Please be at least 25 years of age to rent this property. Due to the proximity to the lake & the many stairs and stone surfaces, we do not recommend Lake Jeff cottage for toddlers.

We spent 4 October weekends at Lake Jeff Cottage, and we hope to return again. We were so enchanted by this lovely cottage that feels rustic and cozy (the fireplace, the dark wood), yet has all necessary modern amenities (glass stall shower, granite countertops); it was a perfect home away from home. We made use of all of the house amenities - the row boat is delightful, as is the outdoor fire pit - and the Visitor Binder was very useful to find nearby activities. Ann and Jeff are reliable, honest, and communicative, and our expectations were surpassed with the quality and care that has gone into making Lake Jeff Cottage such a special place. We hope to be back again soon!

A relaxing get away!
A relaxing get away!
My husband and I, along with some friends were looking for a summer get away not too far from Manhattan. The Lake house was exactly what we all were looking for. A place that allowed us to relax, BBQ and spend time with our friends. Ann was wonderful and made it very easy for us throughout the entire process and was always quick to respond to us if we needed something. The Lake House is a only a 2 hour ride from the "Big City," but you feel like you are far far away from it all! I would def recommend the Lake House if you are looking for a very chill and relaxing get away that does not require too much travel! Thanks again Ann :)

Lake Jeff Cottage is a gem! The house is much nicer than the pictures show. The bedrooms are cozy and comfortable. All have air conditioning units, but we did not need them at night. Each room has its own charms. The bunk room was provides some privacy and would be perfect for kids. The master and queen bedrooms are large and comfortable and provide a great view. The single bedroom downstairs was a favorite among our guests! The bedrooms are tucked away from the living room and common room, so members of our large group were able to go to bed early or sleep in late without being disturbed by the rest of the group in the living room. The kitchen is equipped with top of the line appliances and top-quality kitchen utensils. We were pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen stocked with many spices, condiments, aluminum foil, etc. The kitchen has a beautiful view, and is warm and cozy. Our favorite parts of the trip were cooking together in the kitchen. The living room is warm and comfortable. While there is a tv in the living room, it is not the focus of the gathering area--perfect for lake vacation. The house has many games, books, maps, and a great binder of information around the area. Our one rainy day was our favorite as we sat around the fireplace and played games. The bathrooms are newly redone. One even has a heated tile floor! The absolute hallmark of Lake Jeff Cottage is the perfectly maintained, terraced backyard. Pictures don't do it justice! Our group counted 42 places for people to sit. There are so many nooks and crannies for reading, sitting, and conversing. The grill is top-of-the-line. There is also a fire pit to the side of the house. Our group spent the week lazily rowing around the lake in the rowboat or swimming to the dock. The down of Jeffersonville is less than a mile away- an easy drive and a doable walk. Pecks supermarket is great for shopping and there is ice cream and pizza in town. We took many beautiful drives around the area during the week as well. We can't wait to return! Lake Jeff Cottage is a treat!

Our stay at Lake Jeff was perfect. A beautiful house with everything you could need, plenty of room and gorgeous scenery made this an amazing retreat for our group of six adults and three dogs. The lake is peaceful and great for taking the boat out and swimming. I couldn't get my lab out of the lake he loved it so much! I can't wait to plan my next stay.

our stay at Lake Jeff Cottage
We had a wonderful 10 days at Lake Jeff Cottage. We arrived just prior to Hurricane Irene, and we experienced no inconveniences. The caretaker Anthony was very helpful, and we had great fun in Jeffersonville and in Callicoon. We visited the museum at Bethel Woods, a must-see when you visit. We had a great time!

Owner response: Thank you Mark!
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Lake Jeff Cottage. The layout of the house and property was ideal for our large group (and pets). Difficult to believe that we were able to find such quiet and seclusion less than 2.5 hours from the city. The house had everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable and functional. We are already talking about making plans for our next stay. Thanks so much!

We had a wonderful time at your cottage
We had a wonderful time at your cottage. We did a lot of fishing off the dock and on the row boat. We caught a lot of good sized perch. We found a road side farm vegetable stand nearby and enjoyed lots of fresh corn. We also had a trip to Skinner's fall and enjoyed the tubing in the river. Even my 3 months old daughter dipped her toes in. We found your cottage very comfortable and well furnished. Kitchen was very tasteful and conveniently stocked with all items necessary. We loved that you had so many lawn chairs and different level surfaces outside, so we can all choose our favorite spot to drink coffee and watch the lake. My 3 year old daughter sure loved being outside. Thank you again for sharing your lovely place. We all had a very comfortable and relaxing week. and thank you so much for fixing the WIFI so quickly. Sincerely, Bo Youm

Wonderful Family Vacation
Wonderful Family Vacation
We had such a wonderful time at Lake Jeff and the cottage was great. We fished, had boat rides, hiked, cooked and baked, saw wildlife, played games and just enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. It was ideal for our adult family. My husband and I also spent a couple of days just sightseeing in the area after our kids left back to the city. Absolutely recommended.

Year Purchased: 2001
About the owner: My husband and I purchased Lake Jeff cottage in the Spring of 2001. At the time, this home was in disrepair, but due to the lovely setting and proximity to the lake, we knew it would be a wonderful home for our family once renovated. It took us nearly 2 years to do the gut renovation necessary to bring this home back to life. Now that our Son is 16, he enjoys spending his weekends with his friends and doesn't enjoy going to the lake every weekend with his parents ( no surprise there) . That's why we decided to rent this very special home. I'm sure our Son will want to spend time at Lake Jeff again in the future, but for now, we will share our home with those who wish to spend time with their loved ones at very special home in the Catskill Mountains
Why the Owner Chose Jeffersonville:
Our family has been going up to this area of the Catskills for many years before purchasing Lake Jeff cottage. This area still remains untouched with farmland, scenic byways and lovely lakes. We chose the town of Jeffersonville due to it's shopping, dining and all around country charm. The people in Jeffersonville and the surrounding towns are both warm and inviting. THey are creative people with a true sense of community.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love a great view! Always have, always will. Lake Jeff cottage offers an incredible view all year round. The panoramic view of the lake simply can't be beat. It offers a feeling of serenity and calm. Having the option to walk down the stairs and jump in the lake on a hot Summers day simply can't be beat! Because this lake has only 9 homes with lake access, Lake Jeff is a peaceful lake allowing for quiet reflection. If you love to fish, this lake is not fished very often and therefore there are many larger sized fish in Lake Jeff.
