The Lakehouse was a summer cottage built at the turn of the 20th century. Our parents bought and renovated it into an all year round family home. It was a wonderful place to raise a family of 6 children. What better playground than a scenic lake as your front yard!? The Lakehouse continues to be a special place for the siblings to gather and celebrate life's special moments with their extended families.
Owner purchased this House in 1955

Wonderful Girls weekend
We have been going to the lake house for our girls weekend for the past several years. It has become like home for us. It is clean and full of charm. The owners are very responsive to any issues and so friendly. The beds are comfortable. We highly recommend this property.
This spot is amazing! First, the hosts provided plenty of towels, linens, blankets, beach towels, boats..everything needed to get settled! The hosts also provided us with an amazing week of weather;), so we really spent every day and night on the front porch, or at the lakefront.....a word about the lakefront -amazing!!! There is so much space -for al fresco dining, swimming, boating, lounging, sand playing -we truly could not get enough of the lake. Our entire family, spanning three generations, truly had the time of our lives!!
We had a great time in this wonderful house for the New Year Eve week-end. We were 2 couples with 5 children between 3 months and 5 year-old. The house is beautiful, very welcoming and cozy. She is also very well maintained.
The location is great (next to woodbury mountain, which is great to ski with the kids) and the view on the lake is breathtaking.
We absolutely recommend this house for a weekend or a longer period of time. We definitely look forward to coming back to this house.
Golden Girls Meet Again
I met up with five ladies all of us being childhood friends and deciding to meet up again after almost 45 to 50 years. We had the time of our lives. This lakefront house is so beautiful and surrounded by breath taking scenery. It was clean, beautifully furnished, had everything we needed from linens and towels being supplied to a fantastic well stocked kitchen with all the utensils and pots and pans you could need to cook, or fantastic restaurants if you chose to eat out. Comfortable living room, big dining room, beautiful bedrooms, two nice bathrooms. We had the most wonderful time and were so glad we chose this home to rent. We will treasure the memory all year long and would like to return to this beautiful home next fall for another get together.
A Family Gathering Place
We found the perfect family gathering place in your wonderful Adirondack home on Lake Waramaug. To surprize our daughter for her birthday, we looked for a place with warmth, plenty of room to hang out together, cook, gather around a table and spend time together celebrating. The walls there speak of many generations of celebration and gatherings. The lovely old hearths in the dining room and livingroom, were a warm backdrop to our evening meals and long rambling talks.
We had everything we needed for making meals and living comfortably there. Though the weather did not cooperate with us much, we plopped out on the covered porch on rainy afternoons and enjoyed the view of the lake. Having use of the canoe was fun on that one day that the sun shown through and we did get out on the lake for a short time.
The approach to the driveway is a bit tricky to navigate and the road in front can be busy, but being close to the lake was really great.
Thank you for opening your special family place for us. Clearly it is a home long cherished and full of family memories. We've added some of ours.
7 friends spent the weekend at the Lake House. It was the most relaxing weekend we have ever spent together (we do a get away once a year) The view from the porch is spectacular, you feel like you're in a tree house overlooking the lake. We had planned to spend the an afternoon sightseeing, we chose to visit the winery and head back to the porch The house is very well equipped and is even better in person than advertised. Dealing with the owners was a great experience, very responsive to emails and questions. Everyone is asking to return to next year which is impressive as the group of us have nver gone to the same place twice. All of us highly recommend this property
We are so pleased you had a great stay. The weather in September and October is some of the best at Lake Waramaug. .
The mention of feeling like you are in a tree house is interesting as the original name for the house was "The Eyrie" which means a nest in a tree-top on top of a mountain.
