Property description

Just 50 miles northwest of New York City, this log cabin situated on Pinecliff Lake, on the NJ/NY state border, was built in 1940 and fully restored in 2008. Two bedrooms on the main floor sleeps 1-4 exceptionally comfortably. Outdoor deck with round table and benches as well as additional Adirondack seating; cantilvered deck over the lake; great place to sit and read, or simply soak up the sun. Deck also features a terra cotta chimnea (fire pitt), which is great for cool nights, sipping a glass of wine (or cocktail of choice!) and watching the sunlight slowly dip behind the mountain.

If you're looking for a place to unwind from the hustle and bustle, quiet nights (and days), this is the place.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: After living and working in New York City for the past 20+ years, I decided I wanted a place to escape to on the weekends; a laid back place with little-to-no-stress. A friend called me one day in May 2007, from the cell phone saying he just drove by this great log cabin, for sale; has 'your name all over it.' So I asked him to send me a pic from his iPhone and the next I know, I'm in contract to buy the cabin. Funny how these things happen.

Why the Owner Chose West Milford:
If you're looking for a peaceful, serene, cozy, get-away-from-the-hustle-and-bustle-of-New-York-City-kind-of-place, in less than 90 minutes of travel time ... this is the place for you. Once here and settled, you will forget you are only 50 miles away from New York City.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Beautiful Adirondack-appointed log cabin, fully renovated with all the amenities of today (WIFI, flat-screen TV, stereo surround sound).
