The Lake Jeff Tree House is a chalet style, 2,500 sq. ft., multi-level 4 bedroom, 3 bath home with loft office and lots of glass windows to view nature from. The enormous outdoor deck features a comfortable living room with L-shaped chaise sofa and coffee table, an 8 seat dining table and large 5 burner gas grill with sear station. Once inside the home the tree house feel continues with floor to ceiling vaulted cathedral windows and light streaming in throughout the day.
The Kitchen is large and fully stocked with an 82" farmhouse table to dine at , window over the sink to day dream at while prepping dinner, a gas stove and oven, microwave oven, double sink, dishwasher, and large refrigerator/freezer.
Lake Jefferson is about 300 yards from the rear of the home. It is accessed by a private path off the deck through a field of ferns and the occasional berry bush down through the fairytale woods until you land upon our multi tiered deck and dock along with a Bluestone patio and large picnic table to accommodate your lake side picnics. At the lake you will find 2 kayaks to explore on or dock at one of the lake's many islands and explore. When finished exploring paddle out to the center of the lake to jump off and cool off with a refreshing swim.
In the summer months of July through August you will enjoy picking the wild raspberries and black berries that grow around the property.
We love to surprise our guests with new upgrades to keep things fresh for new and returning guests.

Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: The Lake Jeff Tree House was designed and built in 2002 by Jill, the owner, an internationally known artist, for our family to relax in and get away from New York City. We have enjoyed the fresh country air, eating locally grown, raised and harvested / foraged foods and playing in the outdoors in the woods and by the lake. The Tree House has served as Jill's summer studio through the years and the home is furnished with many personal works of art by her and artist whom she knows. Our family has loved and cared for this home throughout the years, as evidenced by the pristine condition that you will find and enjoy. We would like every guest to experience the same serenity and beauty that we have found in the woods on Lake Jefferson.
Why the Owner Chose Jeffersonville, NY, USA:
The Lake Jeff Tree House is a true retreat from the the hectic pace of everyday life. You can choose to stock up the fridge and relax with all of the comforts you desire, both indoors and out, on the living room deck or beside the lake. There is no need to leave unless you want to partake in the many amenities that Sullivan County has to offer. You will find the Bethel Woods Performing Art Center and the site of the 1969 Woodstock Music festive and Museum just 8 miles away. Down the road from that is the Dancing Cat Saloon and Distillery. The Dancing Cat Saloon serves up good food and spirts along with local talents performing jam sessions. The Distillery is distilling 'Peace Vodka' which you can sample there or at the Dancing Cat. Take a ride along the Delaware River to Fort Delaware. Experience life in a Fort as it would have been. This is great for kids and adults alike or continue down the lake to Skinners Falls to swim or tube the rapids. Winter is just as exciting at the Tree House. Build a fire in the fireplace and listen to the crackle. When the lake freezes the locals ice fish on it. You can sled the local hills or for a bigger adventure ski or snowtube Villa Roma which is a 15 minute drive away. Its a small run but great family fun to noodle around on ski's without crowds.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a true nature getaway. Whether its summer and you are watching the trees sway and hearing the leaves rustle, listening to the geese honk or watching the small woodland animals at the lake or its winter and you build a snow fort then sit cozy by the fireplace watching the snow fall, you will make lasting memories with friends and family. You will love the tranquility of your vacation at the Tree House at Lake Jeff.
