Just got back and I must say one of the best places I've stayed at in years, house was great lake was beautiful, all I needed was to buy food everything else was there. Kids loved kayak and pontoon boat, we swam and BBQ'd and had a campfire for S'mores every night and the Direct TV and really good WI-FI was great for downtime..Bill the owner was great and if anything was needed he was close by ...nothing was needed,,A++++++++++++

Just would like to say thank you to Bill, for accommodating us for our trip the Pontoon boat was having little trouble but we still got to enjoy it and he felt bad. The house is clean it is beautiful view. We BBQ swim in the lake Rode on the Pontoon and paddle boat. What a great time and Bill just made you feel like it was your home. Even went out his way to get us a bag of Ice from his stock. Class act This was second year in row me and my wife came this year we brought our cousins and they loved it as well.

One of the best lake stays we have had!*

  • 5 of 5

We booked the cabin for a nice weekend of September, just as the weather and the leaves were changing. Everything from the hospitality of the owners, to the cleanliness of the property & boat, and the quiet nights on the lake was perfect. I would highly recommend this house and look forward to spending many more weekends here!

ps- if you are looking for a pet friendly house, you have found your match! the deck was completely gated and our pup enjoyed this just as much as we did. :)

Great Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a very relaxing weekend at the cottage. It was the perfect size for our family of three plus my parents. The cottage was clean, had everything we needed during our stay and was very dog- and kid-friendly. The cute cottage/lodge decor made it cozy and the views from the living room and decks were fantastic. We also really enjoyed taking the pontoon boat out to fish or just relax on the water. The peddle boat and kayak were nice for just taking a quiet morning ride. We had planned to explore the area a bit, but we ended up never leaving the cottage during our stay. We're looking forward to going back again.

Awesome Location

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome! We stayed for a full week and enjoyed every minute. We had one rainy day and there are plenty of activities in the house to keep one occupied...from satellite TV and WII to books and games. Bill was great in taking care of us. We ejoyed cruising the lake in the pontoon and my daughter loved the kayak. Our other daughter was working at a camp 1/2 hour away and brought friends over for a visit. Great place to entertain with all the deck space and the grill! We spent part of one day visiting Woodstock in Bethel NY about an hour away. Bill, thanks for taking such good care of us and making our time with you very fun.

The Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We spent four days at this cozy cabin and, when we left, our only regret was that we didn't stay longer! This hidden gem couldn't be more perfect. From the pontoon boat to the kayak, there was something to enjoy every day. And the house itself was wonderful. Clean, cozy and nicely decorated, it made for an absolutely fantastic mountain retreat. And the owners were, hands down, the best people we've ever rented from. Not a single question went unanswered and they were always available to help at anytime without complaint. Seriously the best house we've ever rented. We are already planning our return trip!

The house is on a 40 acre private motor boat lake. You have use of our 24' Pontoon boat. If you wish to bring your own boat or jet ski, you can launch and either keep it at our dock or use our boat lift. The lake has great bass fishing, we are only a few miles from the Cannonsville resovior, and only a few miles in the other direction from the west branch of the delaware, which has some of the best fly fishing on the east coast. There are numerous golf courses within a half hour drive, but you probably won't leave the lake once you get here.
