Chalet style, 2,500 sq. ft., 4 bedroom home with lots of glass windows to view nature from. Once inside the home it is like a tree house in the woods, floor to ceiling windows and light abound.

We have also replaced the gas grill on the deck with a new 5 burner grill with sear station.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: The Lake House was designed and built in 2002 by Jill, the owner, an internationally known artist, for our family to relax in and get away from New York City. We have enjoyed the fresh country air, eating locally grown, raised and harvested / foraged foods and playing in the outdoors in the woods and by the lake. The Lake House has served as Jill's summer studio through the years and the home is furnished with many personal works of art by her and artist whom she knows. Our family has loved and cared for this home throughout the years, as evidenced by the pristine condition that you will find and enjoy.

                  Why the Owner Chose Jeffersonville:
                  The Lake House is a true retreat from the the hectic pace of everyday life. You can choose to stock up the fridge and relax with all of the comforts you desire, both indoors and out. There is no need to leave unless you want to partake in the many amenities that Sullivan County has to offer. You will find the Bethel Woods Performing Art Center and the site of the 1969 Woodstock Music festive and Museum just 8 miles away. Down the road from that is the Dancing Cat Saloon and Distillery. The Dancing Cat Saloon serves up good food and spirts along with local talents performing jam sessions. The Distillery is distilling 'Peace Vodka' which you can sample there or at the Dancing Cat. Take a ride along the Delaware River to Fort Delaware. Experience life in a Fort as it would have been. This is great for kids and adults alike. Winter is also a great time to be a the Lake House. The locals ice fish and you can sled the local hills or for a bigger adventure ski or snowtube Villa Roma which is a 15 minute drive away. Its a small run but great family fun to noodle around on ski's without crowds.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This is a true nature getaway. Whether its summer and you are watching the trees sway and hearing the leaves rustle and the geese honk or its winter and your sitting cozy by the fireplace watching the snow fall, you will make lasting memories with friends and family. You will love the tranquility of your vacation at the Lake House.
