Why Eric Hantman chose
We love getting out of the city and relaxing at the Lakehouse. The peaceful setting is perfect to disconnect and enjoy nature. It's the perfect getaway to hike and explore the surroundings on the property and in the area. All 4 seasons offer something different and special. Boating and fishing in summer, Hiking and exploring in the Spring, Foliage in the Fall and Winter is magical when it snows.

Perfect for our fall family gathering!
We had an amazing weekend at the lake house, enjoying gorgeous, warm fall weather for a family getaway. The dock is stunning—we spent many mornings and evenings drinking coffee or cocktails there and chatting. We made use of the fire pit, the kayaks and paddle boards, and the grill. The house has everything you need for a relaxing weekend away; we really only had to leave to buy groceries. The one thing I would say is that we were originally supposed to be 10 people: 4 couples and 2 singles. Instead, we were 3 couples and 3 singles, 9 people in total. This worked out totally fine, but if groups are coming with 4-5 couples who want privacy, just know that some might have to share a room and/or a bathroom (including a beautiful Jack and Jill bathroom that would have been more awkward for us had it not been shared by family members). Otherwise, we recommend this house highly. The owner is responsive and the property is beautiful.
Exceeded my expectations
The house is beautiful and laid out perfectly for our group. The bedrooms are each large and there are plenty of bathrooms / shower to accommodate everyone. The lake is serene and the kayaks / paddle boards were a great addition and fun to paddle around on. We also brought some floaters as there were more of us than could fit on the kayaks/paddle boards which I would recommend to future guests. Eric was extremely helpful in answering all our questions about what to expect with the house, getting in, where to eat/ go out. There was nothing more we could have asked for and my friends and I. We had an unforgettable time. Would love to go back in the future. Would give 6 stars if possible.
Lake house getaway!
Beautiful and serene property for a great relaxing vacation!
Amazing luxury hideaway in the woods!
First of all- from the moment I booked the house Eric was incredibly responsive- most of the time replying within 10 minutes of a question (and we had several). The house was perfect for our family reunion! We had 5 adults, 1 child and 1 toddler- everyone was very comfortable and had plenty of room to spread out (particularly our 20 month old who had a great crib, high chair, toys, etc.) One of the highlights was the private dock on the lake just a couple hundred yards from the house. We sat in the sun, went swimming and kayaking. The kitchen is amazing and had everything we needed to prepare all meals (minus the food of course). There is a little town about 5 minutes away with a surprisingly well stocked grocery store. There were a few items that needed addressing: the dryer wasn’t working, one of the sinks wasn’t putting out hot water, and the basement needed some dehumidifying. But again- as soon as I mentioned these to Eric he was already scheduling the work to fix the issues. Bottom line: this is a truly magical high end ultra private house in the middle of the woods only 2 hours from NYC. Highly recommended!!
Best Property in the Area
My friends and I have been coming to the area for 8 years, and we never had quite the experience that this great house offers! The house has everything you need for a weekend away from the bustling city life. It is close to every major rafting outfitter, as well as a short drive (5 min) to the supermarket/town for any last minute supplies you may have forgotten.
Highland Lake truly separates this house from any other in the area that I have looked at. There is a great dock at the house that is perfect for any type of activity. The lake is also very clean, so clean that you can even view your whole body once submersed. There is also a pretty cool bar/restaurant located across the lake, as well as a boat rental company (however the kayaks and paddle boards were more than enough for us). We did bring along inflatable rafts that allowed us to park in the lake, hang out, and swim.
As for the house, it is super spacious and provides ample space for everyone to be comfortable. The house was super clean and has everything you would need to accommodate a large group. There is even a steam shower in the master bedroom that was a complete game changer. The ping pong table/N64/dart board allowed for nightly tournaments that added some competitiveness to our trip.
I definitely could not recommend this house more! Eric is very responsive and will guide you every step of the way. Our group will definitely be making another trip next summer!
I’m so glad you guys had a great time!
It’s nice to hear about guests’ special times at the Lakehouse!
Look forward to having you back.
Beautiful lake, beautiful home, and a wonderful host. We stayed here for a weekend retreat and found it idyllic and perfectly situated. Would gladly return!
I'm glad you and your group enjoyed your stay! Hope to have you back again.
