About Diane Krein

My husband and I purchased our home over ten years ago and wanted to share the lake with others when we couldn't enjoy it ourselves. We live in upstate New York and love winter and skiing in the Catskill Mountains but when the warmer weather hits we want to be on our boat and going south gives us a longer boating season! The tranquil atmosphere at the lake provides a welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of our lives.

Diane Krein purchased this house in 2004

Lovely home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

This charming home is beautifully maintained. Furnishings are updated and very clean, and all the amenities we needed for a family vacation were included. We enjoyed the deck, the dock, the view, and the peaceful setting near the state park. Use of the kayaks was an added bonus!

Amazing sunrises, beautiful Location.

  • 5 of 5

Great place for a family vacation, slept six of us and had room to spare. The dock was amazing and you felt like the only ones on the lake while out on the dock or in the water. Our family has rented from the owner several time and they are a true pleasure to work with. Great location across from the state park witt a short drive to town.

Pirate's Cove perfect place for a family get away!

  • 4 of 5

The owners were very flexible with us and accommodated our last minute plans. As soon as we arrived we made ourselves at home and were on the dock enjoying the water view. We had everything we needed and enjoyed a very relaxing weekend on the lake. The use of the kayaks was awesome since my 11 year old son learned that weekend how to kayak by himself. They also did a lot of fishing. Wish we had more then the weekend to spend here and will definitely come back to SML.
