A perfect place on the Lake
A perfect place on the Lake
I moved out of Hopatcong 23 years ago. It was a magical place to grow up. I wanted to return to the lake and share it's beauty with my own children. I contacted the owner and shared my story with her and Sharon was a delight! When we arrived at the house they key was not in the lock box. Sharon drove it over and solved the issue promptly. This rental was everything that I had hoped it would be! It offered comfortable rooms, nicely decorated with plenty of space to spread out. Very clean, too! We fished off of the docks, canoed and kayaked. We rented a pontoon boat and explored the lake at very low speeds (water level was high- no wake). The boathouse was well equipped with life jackets. We even took a few days and went into NYC (easy drive). I was elated that my children loved the lake as much as I did growing up. We hope for a return visit in the future! Thank you Sharon.

Beautiful place to stay and the house was well maintained. I would recommend this property to anyone. Every year for the past eight years my sisters and I have been going away and staying within the New York, New Jersey, PA area and this place was by far the best. We may have found our place. Thank you.

Relaxation at its Best!
Relaxation at its Best!
My husband made a last minute decision to take a week off from work and really wanted to get away but we knew we couldn't go far given our kids' schedules. Our friends own this wonderful lakehouse that we had visited many times as their guests and knew that they were now offering the home for rent. Both my husband and I thought immediately about renting this fabulous lakefront home for the July 4th week. It was available and we booked it! (We were the first renters!) From the moment we arrived, my husband started to relax! The views of the lake from the patio and the house are wonderful! We enjoyed reading on the lawn down by the boathouse while our kids hopped in and out of the lake. Most evenings we grilled dinner and then lit a fire in the fireplace on the patio and made smores. Our kids range in age from 14-19 and they were happily entertained at the lakehouse with the kayak, pool table and the swimming. Our older kids were able to drive back and forth to the lakehouse in about 45 minutes each way. We rented a pontoon boat one day from 10am to 6pm and putzed around the lake several times - that was a highlight! The boat rental place even arranged for our $5 temporary boaters' license and we were able to come back to the house in the middle of day for lunch as there is the boat dock on site. We found getting to shopping - both grocery and "other" - to be very simple and there seemed to be plenty of good restaurants close by. We only ate out one night but enjoyed an Italian place that was right around the corner and right on the water. It's so hard to tell from the pictures on the website but the house is HUGE! We also love the way it is decorated - far nicer than any lake cottage I've ever been to. The beds were very comfortable and the A/C was a big bonus as temps were in the high 90's the week we were there. We would highly recommend this lakehouse! It is comfortable, elegant, large, clean and has views and access to the lake that can't be beat!
