Greenwood Lake chateau / country house description
Beautiful home on Greenwood Lake that sleeps up to 15! The Lynch Family invite you to their second home, Tara House, featuring lakefront access to Greenwood Lake, New York. Start your day with coffee on the lakefront deck and watch the swans fly by and the fish jump in the lake! In the summer, activities include boating, fishing, swimming and water skiing. Have fun playing horseshoes or volleyball in the backyard, or perhaps you might enjoy a movie at one of the last remaining drive-in theaters in the country. If relaxation is what you came for, head out to the back porch to relax in the 7 person massage therapy pool, or curl up by the fireplace and enjoy a good book. This home has it all and is roomy enough for the whole family.
Tara House offers a master bedroom suite which features a king size bed, private bathroom with a 6' jacuzzi tub and private deck overlooking the lake. The other three upstairs bedrooms feature queen sized beds. One of the Queen sized rooms has a twin bed. These rooms share a ceramic tiled bath and offer either lake or mountain views. The fifth bedroom which is located on the first floor is handicapped accessible. This bedroom features a queen sized bed and a twin bed and provides a separate bath with 5' shower. In the living room there are 4 couchs, one being a sofa bed.
Summer brings out the best as you can go to Sterling Ridge Paintball and Renaiissance Festival only 4 miles away. A little further away is the Mountain Creek Adventure Park. And did we mention wineries, shopping, antiquing and more. All in the beautiful Hudson Valley, New York's playground.
Tired of all the outside activities? Join the family in the game room on our new pool table or table tennis, cards or board games. Need another diversion? Just want to sit back and relax? Take a nap on the luxurious sofas or turn on the giant screen cable TV, or the gas fireplace, and unwind. Everything is provided. Just bring your linens and towels and you are off for a fantastic adventure. Or for an additional charge we will even provide linens!

25th Girls Weekend!
25th Girls Weekend!
We just spent a week at this great house with its wonderful location. The first half of our stay we were 13 woman, all family members. We chose this house for our 25th Girls Weekend and it did not disappoint! On Monday most of our party left with the exception of 4, Kevin was fine with the idea of our husbands joining us for the few remaining days. We had a great time on the pontoon (A BIG THANK YOU, KEVIN) the lake is beautiful! The houses around the lake are beautiful, we enjoyed exploring the area. Go to the beach, it's small, but offers a lot! They had a band playing on Friday night, unfortunately we missed it. A few girls went to the driven and said it was fun, especially since they hadn't been to one in decades. We went to two of the restaurants in the area, Planet Pizza a little pizzeria, that easily accommodated our large group. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The other restaurant, Emerald Point has a great atmosphere and good food. Sit inside or out, we did both. If your sitting outdoors you'll be overlooking the lake, what a great view. We went to Mountain Creek for the day to the water park, what a fun time. We would love to get back in the winter to enjoy the cold weather activities. There's plenty to do, either at the house or in the surrounding area. Now to the house, it has plenty of room. The sleeping arrangements are just as said. The master bedroom is huge and 2 of the girls shared the room with the mothers sleeping on a comfy air mattress, they brought. Not that it was needed, we just preferred not to open the sofa in the living room. The Kitchen is also huge, you'll find everything you'll need. Great layout. Plenty of parking. The house offers so much to do, however we enjoyed each others company so much we didn't even get to the ping pong, or pool table. Maybe next time!

We have been planning a getaway weekend for a few years and this was our first time to Tara House. This house was very comfortable and with 5 bedrooms everyone was able to have their own. We really enjoyed the large living area and kitchen.We had a great day in town shopping and enjoying luch. The owner was very easy to work with and very responsive to all emails. Everyone agreed that this would be our annual location for all future weekend getaways. We look forward to next year!

Mr. Lynch: Just wanted you to know we were out early this morning and all on our journeys home! We truly appreciated the rental use of your home as it allowed us to have a wonderful reunion with the family and spend time together 24/7. Something we have not done in years! We believe it was one of the best Thanksgivings we have ever had and look forward to doing it again in the future!! As requested, all dirty linens and towels were folded up and placed in laundry room. (We did re-make the beds with the comforters only). Garbage and recyclables were left in the garage, dishwasher was put on prior to leaving, and door was locked behind us! We trust you will find everything in order and in its place. (A family of 4 girls ages 40 - 50, with Mom over our shoulder to assure it looked better than when we entered it)!!! Thanks again! Let me know if you need anything else and will look forward to connecting with you again! Sincerely, Jackie

We stayed at Tara House over West Point's Ring Weekend - our Cadet just LOVED the spacious home and it was the perfect distance away from USMA...not too far to go back and forth but far enough that he felt like he was getting away. The Greenwood Lake area is beautiful, with lots of nice restaurants and places to visit. We enjoyed a cruise around the lake on the pontoon boat and cooked some great meals in the HUGE kitchen. All of the bedrooms are big and comfortable, and the owner was thoughtful and attentive. We would love to come back again!

We really enjoyed our Ladies Weekend at Tara House. The living area is beautiful and comfortable for a group. The kitchen is a cooks dream! The outdoor space, yard, lake, decks, and hot tub were perfect for our warm spring weekend. The owner was pleasant and accomodating to deal with and I would highly reccomend this rental. Thank you!

Tara House was a beautiful getaway for my group. From the wonderful kitchen, entertaining game room, five bedrooms, and expansive living room, Tara House is an excellent place for large groups. The house we very well maintained, cleaned, and decorated. We enjoyed all this house had to offer and cannot recommend the house highly enough!

Owner response: Thank you, Ryan. The West Point Cadets are always welcome at Tara House. We look forward to seeing you again. Go Army!!!!!
I stayed at the Tara house with a group of 7 guys for a bachelor party weekend. The house was all that it claims to be and more. We planned on being outside on the lake and deck most of the time, however, the back up plan for rain was to be able to be inside the house and comfortable. When it did rain, we were not disappointed as the house is spacious. The game room is the best room I have ever played ping pong in, great lighting and table placement. If you were in a room upstairs, you could hardly even hear the guests downstairs, I would imagine people with kids would appreciate this. Hot tub was great. House was clean, and every thing functioned as it should. Kitchen and outdoor grill are excellent. In fact, we only left the house to go food shopping. We booked Tara house because it included use of the pontoon boat. If you are interested in fishing, or even swimming in the lake, you need the boat to get out to the main part of the lake, as the house sits on an inlet that tends to get very murky and overgrown with weeds. The boat runs, but we were not as confident in using it to take us too far, as it frequently was difficult to start, and one of the guys we were with knows what he is doing( he owns a boat), so it wasn't just a lack of experience on our part. That said, for the price of the rental including a boat, this place rocks!!!! We couldn't have found a better deal. Highly recommended.

Owner response: Thank you. I do hope you will stay with us again in the near future with your beautiful bride! Have a Happy Wedding Day and a long life of health and happiness! Kevin
A group of girlfriends and I stayed at Tara House in February. It's a perfect house for a group gathering. The open kitchen and large dining room table are great for cooking and eating. The house was in great shape and a great size! (We especially loved all the bathrooms!) The property and lake are beautiful. We will definitely try to stay at this house again. Thanks!

Owner response: Thank you Amanda for the kind words. We also hope to see you back at Tara House real soon.
This home is huge and clean and right on the the northeast finger of Greenwood Lake. The home has everything you need for a great vacation. The kitchen was to die for. It has a full size stainless freezer, full stainless refrig, granite topped center island and counter tops, an oversized stainless oven and a great view of the lake. The owner was a wealth of information and we can't wait for our next visit.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My wife and I purchased Tara House during 2004 as a flip property that needed to be renovated. After the renovation we fell in love with the house and decided to keep it. It is the perfect family reunion home. We use it as often as possible, and enjoy different activities throughout each season. Our house is the perfect place to relax and enjoy your family and friends.
Why the Owner Chose Greenwood Lake:
We love Greenwood Lake. No matter what the season the area is alive with activities and natural beauty. The 9 mile lake has it all. Beautiful homes, great restaurants, friendly people, and honest outdoor pleasures.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
Our favorites are the drive in theater, the wineries, the ice cream shop, and driving the pontoon boat to see the splendors of the area from the lake. It truly is a wonderful house and no matter how many times I go there it never gets old. In fact my wife is upset that the property rents as well as it does. We hardly get to use it anymore!
