Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: My husband and I were raided in Manhattan, NYC. We've enjoyed escaping to the mountains of Sullivan County for decades. We were fortunate to have found and renovate Lake Jeff cottage which allowed us the freedom to leave the hustle and bustle of NYC and unwind in the peaceful setting of Lake Jeff cottage. Our son is in college and it's more difficult to get away these days as a family, which is why we decided to share our home with you.

Why the Owner Chose Jeffersonville, NY, USA:
This is very special property. My husband's family have enjoyed the town of Jeffersonville for two decades. The people are friendly and the town is a quaint country town just one mile from our home. The tranquility, the lake, the bald eagles and the amazing view will warm your heart and melt your stress away as it does for us. We've enjoyed many a holiday at our cottage and have some very special family memories here. My son and nephews learned to swim, fish, ice skate & sled on Lake Jeff. We've had many a friends and family members gather at our home to swim & BBQ in summers as well as ice skate and ice fish during Winter months. We feel truly fortunate to own one of Sullivan County's hidden gems. We hope have the opportunity to experience all that Lake Jeff cottage has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this property the first time we stood in the living room and experienced the million-dollar views. While the house was in great need of renovations, the setting was absolutely perfect! After years of renovations, we were able to create an oasis for our family to enjoy for years to come. Fishing, swimming, rowing and relaxing by the fire pit can be had just steps outside the door. The beauty and serene setting affords you the opportunity to relax and unwind. During winter months the lake freezes over and the ground can be covered with 2 feet of snow. Winter activities are great fun and just outside your door. Sledding, ice fishing and even ice skating can be enjoyed from the property. There's a family-friendly skiing facility just a short drive from the cottage as well. Be sure to visit our website for additional photos and information about Lake Jeff Cottage.
