An Architect designed our house with the spare bedrooms as sleeper cabins that are attached to the main house by a small set of stairs off the deck of the main house.

Main house: master bedroom with master bathroom and queen bed, living room has two contemporary German design convertible couches that are queen size and a bathroom with shower.

The guest bedrooms are the two sleeper cabins: one has four bunk beds, and the other has two twin frame beds and they are attached to the main house by a small deck and a few steps.

Weekend rental check in at a 24 hr clock and is noon to noon unless other wise agreed.

Well-behaved, housebroken pets may be allowed (with written consent of owner) but must supply a dog bed or crate and keep the pets off the furniture

To be very clear so it is a win win- the house was designed with out a tv but we do have high speed internet

Also No dish washer !

Close to nyc ..yet a slice of heaven in nature... great escape The best of both worlds... it is a gem of a house and property to relax in , getting in touch with oneself ... waking up to the sounds of nature and watching a glorious sunsets over the lake ... enjoying both dinner with friend and family after a day of swimming or exploring.

What makes this house unique

Chic house with modern features, while enjoying the great outdoors.

  • 5 of 5

This house is truly breathtaking. The amenities are amazing, the host is more than accommodating. The indoor/outdoor spaces allow you to enjoy the woods and the lake, while being comfortable. Have never seen a house like it before!

Everything we hoped it would be

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this house is great. It is spacious and well appointed. The beds are comfortable and there are plenty of linens and towels. The entire side of the house facing the lake opens up (with retracting screens to keep the bugs out) so you can feel like you're outside at all times if you choose to open things up. The two bathrooms have high end and modern fixtures that we did not expect in a lake house. The kitchen is modern and had everything we needed to serve a large group. Everything about the house is top notch.

Also, dealing with Camille was a pleasure . She and George, who is the local contact in Monroe, were responsive and helpful. We were there for graduation at West Point and recommend this house to any other West Point families looking for a place to stay. It was an easy 20-25 minute drive to WP.

Oh my goodness! Thank you! What an incredible house you have. We enjoyed it and ourselves so much. The girls had a blast swimming and toasting marshmallows and my husband and I actually got a chance to hang out and talk ( doesn't happen often with a 5 and 3 year old). It was so special and every detail was taken care of. Thank you for the house, the awesome shower and a weekend of fun memories. We hope you'll have us back!!!

Beautiful, relaxing, comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED Fall Escape! We were visiting the area for West point graduation and the house was perfect for us.

The layout is really comfortable and we absolutely loved the feel of the home. Looking out through the woods to the lake from the kitchen and living room was beautiful.

We enjoyed the ping pong table and used the kayaks in the lake. And we listened to music via our phones and the terrific wall-mounted speakers.

The sleeping arrangements were perfect for us - the cabins, the bedroom and the sleeper sofas in the living room were all great. We had 6 to 8 people every night and we were very comfortable.

The back porch is awesome - great place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning!

Beautiful Lake House 1 Hour from NYC

Second time staying at this beautiful, contemporary lake house / cabin, just an hour drive from NYC. Deck, lake access, grill, and every amenity imaginable (sound system, games, supplies). We will definitely be back. Thanks Camille!

What and amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

The entire property is stunning, from the landscaping to the interior design of the house, we were blown away with every charming little detail.

We are a very green and environment conscious group of people who love the outdoors and treasure moments without technology, which made this place the perfect fit.

The lake is nice, there is a busy road across on the other side, but we didn't mind it so much.

Breakfast was magical, the kitchen had everything we needed to cook with and the dinning table with spectacularly placed right next to one of two massive sliding doors that let a nice breeze in. We caught it at JUST the right time, the weather was perfect; not too warm or too chilly.

Ping pong and Foosball where tons of fun, and they are WELL stocked with some great board games. NOTE: We brought our own playing cards though!

Overall, we were very pleased and Camille was super easy to communicate with. Everything went incredibly smooth and there were no complaints except for the fact that we had to leave so soon!
