                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2003

                  About the owner: My husband Joe and I live in New Jersey and have 2 children. We love to travel and enjoy getting away to the lake for quiet time - it's a private oasis from the rest of our lives.

                  Why the Owner Chose Hopatcong:
                  We wanted to find a Lake Front home with plenty of space for entertaining our family and friends, without having to drive hours to get there! We also wanted to be able to swim and dive safely, right from our dock - with no worries of speeding boats injuring anyone. This Great home on our private cove was the answer to everything on our wish-list! We also added an extra-large deck built with top-of-the-line materials to make our outdoor living even more pleasurable!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  You truly feel like you've escaped everything once you reach our private, dead-end road! No cars will be buzzing by, and no swarms of people hustling for parking spots. (3 cars fit in our driveway.) The house is located on a deep-water, private cove, just around from Byram Cove. Enjoy the use of a private diving platform, right in the middle of our cove. Fish right off the dock (License Required by State of NJ). Bask in the sun on our large deck or dock, while taking in the Gorgeous Views! We enjoy traveling, and having rented homes where things are missing, or are poor quality etc; here we strive to anticipate your needs and make your vacation as fantastic and as memorable as possible!
