Lake Owassa cottage description


Welcome to our charming rustic lakeside cottage on Lake Owassa in Northwest New Jersey. The cottage (The Woodbine) dates back to 1921. You need not drive far from New York City to find a great vacation spot. On the other hand, we are no more than 1 1/2 hours from the city. (We often go into the city for shows and Yankee games!)

The Woodbine is lake front and directly connected to the dock, only 25 feet from the front porch, by a shaded wooden path. Enjoy swimming, canoeing, kayaking or rowing in the boats at the cottage. There is a great screened-in wrap-around porch with a large dining area, an indoor dining room for more intimate dinners and an eat-in kitchen. All of the bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and can comfortably accommodate two guests. One of the bedrooms actually has three single beds. The view across the lake is of the Kittatiny Mountains and the Appalachian Trail. It is wonderful to enjoy dinner on the porch overlooking the lake as the sun sets on the ridge.

We have vacationed around the country in homes and condos and know what kinds of things are important to renters. Plenty of dishes and mugs for meals, towels for the lake, extra linens and blankets, listings of local restaurants, shops for 'antique-ing', rainy day activities list for adults or kids (including lots of games and videos/DVDs in the cupboard). The house is also child-friendly, with plenty of room on the porches for playing. Fishing is also fun at the lake as people often pull out good sized bass and pickerel.

There are many festivals and the New Jersey State Fair (you can visit their website to check out the dates) that are held at the Sussex County Fairgrounds which is only 5 miles from the cottage. Some of the more popular are the Crawfish Festival (Hugely popular with wonderful food and music!), Garden Shows, AKC shows, horse shows and of course, the state fair.

The cottage is heated and available as a 3-season rental, from early May-October 31st, on a weekly basis. We have a three night minimum from September 10-October 31. Spring is a lovely time to be at the lake. Summer is warm and the sunsets can't be beat, but the Fall with all of the leaves changing color is nothing short of spectacular! Sorry, no pets allowed.

We are now taking reservations for the Summer and Fall of 2014 and all dates in 2015 season. See below for pricing information. Returning guest discount available, multiple week discount available.

We accept PAYPAL.
