About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, sleeps 4 adults + children

The Lake House is a newer, three-bedroom home nestled in a secluded five-acre wooded setting in the Catskills. As you drive through the woods to the house you may spot wild turkeys and rabbits. There is plenty of parking as you pull up to the house. When you first view the Lake House you may be taken in by the long front yard and its park-like setting - it is breathtaking! But the crowning glory is the lake itself, quiet and serene, and there is 200 feet of lakefront! Stroll out onto the dock. Take in the quiet… the peacefulness of it all. Listen to the fish jump and relax - this is what the Lake House is all about! Enjoy kayaking and paddle boating on the lake, swim from the dock, or indulge in excellent fresh water fishing. Light a big fire in the lakeside fire pit and toast marshmallows under the amazing display of stars. Or just sunbathe and read a book on the huge deck with a view of the lake.

Minimum Age for Renters: 30 years or older (except children accompanied by parents).

House Description:

The first floor has a modern kitchen that is fully equipped for your culinary pleasures. The counter seats four comfortably and opens into a dining area with a large wooden table which seats up to eight. Glass doors in the living area provide both a view and access to the deck overlooking the yard and Titus Lake. The spacious deck is equipped with a gas grill and beautiful glass table with umbrella to enjoy dining alfresco. The first floor also has a full bath across from one of the three bedrooms. This bedroom has a full-size bed.

On the second floor is another full bath, complete with a luxurious walk-in tiled shower. There are two more bedrooms on the second floor. The kids’ room has a set of bunk beds and space for a porta-crib. There is a TV/DVD player in this room. The third bedroom is large with a queen size bed and a futon sofa for additional seating or sleeping space. This bedroom features a spectacular view of the rolling lawn and lake!

The Lake House is the place to get away from it all. Relax by the lake or on the deck, play Frisbee, or unwind with some good old-fashioned board games. Hike in the woods, or run or bike on beautiful curving mountain roads.

There is no smoking allowed in the Lake House.

Dogs under 40 pounds will be considered, at owner's discretion. May not be suitable for those with pet allergies.

The way a vacation should be...

  • 5 of 5

This was our second vacation at this beautiful lake house and it's safe to say we will be back. The house is immaculate and stocked with everything you need for a comfortable stay. Being able to wake up and stroll down to the lake for kayaking or fishing was a little slice of Heaven for the time we were there. We also enjoyed biking on the Catskill Scenic Trail, playing catch and looking for frogs on the huge lawn, and roasting marshmallows as we watched the sun set over the lake. Even on the day or two we had rain, we had a blast playing old fashioned board games and watching movies while drinking cocoa and having quality family time that is so often missed in the busy rat race of every day life. On top of all this, Wayne is extremely responsive and gives you all the details and directions you need well in advance of your stay. This is exactly the kind of vacation we look for when we want to take a break from our regular, hectic lives. We are already looking forward to next year :)

This place was way much more than expected. The house was very secluded and set back well from the road. The yard was huge and the property was breathtaking! The lake was gorgeous, especially liked how most of the homes were set back from the lake so it seemed like the lake was your very own private lake. I caught many bass, and released them, in middle of the afternoon, from the kayak.

The inside of the house was very nice also. Plenty of room upstairs and down.

This place was like staying in your own piece of heaven!

Thank you

Gorgeous and amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't capture the complete beauty and serenity of this place. The house is beautiful and thoughtfully decorated and stocked. The house is well maintained. Our family enjoyed the lake, grilling and the game room everyday. Wayne was just an email or call away, if we needed anything. We will return to this wonderful place.

Awesome Time! Beautiful Property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The property on Titus Lake was absolutely gorgeous. With all of the baseball tournament activities there was no better place to come to and relax afterwards. The house and property were very clean and well kept. Made for great memories.

great place for getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week here in this lake cabin. The place is so clean and well organized, everything is within reach. Lake is just few hundred feet away, with direct access and yet keeps safe distance from the house to keep young child and small animal safe. Would love to come back again.

Very scenic and relaxing !

The house was more then we expected ~ very clean and had everything that we needed. We felt at home and relaxed on the beautiful deck facing the lake. We were able to paddle boat, kayak and fish and enjoyed the firepit near the water. Would stay again !
