                          Year Purchased: 2001

                          About the owner: My husband and I were raided in Manhattan, NYC. We've enjoyed escaping to the mountains of Sullivan County for decades. We were fortunate to have found and renovate Lake Jeff cottage which allowed us the freedom to leave the hustle and bustle of NYC and unwind in the peaceful setting of Lake Jeff cottage. Our son is in college and it's more difficult to get away these days as a family, which is why we decided to share our home with you.

                          Why the Owner Chose Jeffersonville:
                          This is truly a unique property. My husband's family have enjoyed the town of Jeffersonville for two decades. The people are friendly and the town is a quaint country town just one mile from our home. The tranquility, the lake, the bald eagles and the amazing view will warm your heart and melt your stress away as it does for us. We've enjoyed many a holiday at our cottage and have some very special family memories here. My son and nephews learned to swim, fish, ice skate & sled on Lake Jeff. We've had many a friends and family members gather at our home to swim & BBQ in summers as well as ice skate and ice fish during Winter months. We feel truly fortunate to own one of Sullivan County's hidden gems. We hope have the opportunity to experience all that Lake Jeff cottage has to offer.
