The neighborhood

Deep-water Byram Bay is one of the nicest spots on Lake Hopatcong with 180 degrees lake views. The Lake itself has a long and rich history, discovered by the Lenape Indians 14,000 years ago, this was the chic destination for New York actors and socialites at the turn of the century and the roaring 20s. Today, the Lake is knows as the largest in New Jersey with 43 miles of shoreline and is very popular for fishing, water sports and restaurant-hopping via boat. Our home is on a quiet side street with little traffic and the neighborhood is perfect for walking, running with side roads and hills. There are numerous restaurants in the vicinity and also all around the lake.

10 minutes from NJ Transit stop in Landing and 15 min from I-80. One hour from NYC and two hours from Philly. Again, there are many restaurants and bars all around the lake and several restaurants and convenience stores within 15 min walk.

We enjoyed 6 wonderful days at this beautiful Lake Hopatcong home!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 11, from Southern California, really enjoyed our 6 day stay at this Lake Hopatcong house rental. The house is so spacious and it had all the basics that allowed us to have fun together each day. And, the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook for our large family. It would be great if the owner installed a washer and dryer for use by those renting this lovely home. Thanks for letting us enjoy your beautiful home on Lake Hopatcong! The Benumof/Fischbeck Families

Owner's Response: Thank You for kind words. We are planning to add washer/dryer for next season. It's a new rental for this year and we collect all the feedback from our guests and try to accomodate future guests with recommendations from past renters. Our goal is to get our guests to feel like at home away from their home.

Nice house but overall bad experience

  • 1 of 5

Upon arrival we were pleased with the home. It was very nice and clean. Our only complaint about the property is the 2 docks which were in disrepair with rusted metal and nails protruding from the dock. We rented a 5 bedroom house but on arrival, one bedroom was locked giving us only access to 4 bedrooms. We were told we needed to pay an additional fee per night to have the bedroom unlocked. We were told by the homeowner we didn't "need" the extra room. This is in violation of Homeaway's policy, as you must be granted access to the entire house unless it is specifically stated as a share house, which this was not. In addition, we were accused by the homeowner of having too many people in the home and he kept our security deposit. This is also in violation of Homeaway's policy. A security deposit can not be used for additional rent. Not surprisingly, the number of people the homeowner falsely claims we had sleeping in the house totals the exact amount of our security deposit. The house was left in immaculate condition upon our departure and in no way should any of our security deposit been retained by the homeowner. We would recommend as much scrutiny as possible in dealing with this homeowner.

Owner's Response: Karen inquired about our house and we have exchanged couple messages about her stay and she was insisting that it will be only 4 people arriving and if we could lower the price for her stay as it will be only her husband and two sons. We have hosted many guests over the years and there are times that we can slightly lower our rates and we agreed on lower rate on one condition, that there will be only 4 people in the house and lower level bedroom will not be accessible (as we would have to pay our cleaners extra and we already provided much lower rate). She agreed to it and booked the house for her stay. Upon her arrival she called right away demanding the 5th bedroom to be opened as she have paid for the whole house. Please note that there was 4 people and 4 bedrooms and we have politely asked her why she needed extra bedroom and stated that there is enough bedrooms in the house and she does not need an extra bedroom and our booking agreement was for 4 guests only. She admitted that there will be more people coming and but no more than 8. We agreed on the supplemental charge for extra guests and bedroom was opened within minutes. Next day we were notified by our property manager that there is 12 people in the house and we have contacted Karen immediately, but she denied it and then we checked our doorbell camera and indeed there was 12 people staying overnight. We have advised her that she will be charged extra or she can leave at this point as she breached our contract but she decided to stay. We were in contact with Homeaway and followed all the directions on how to deal with this situation and we were advised to charge extra fee for additional 4 guests towards security deposit and we did not violate Homeaway’s policies as we were told to handle this in this manner. We are always trying to make our guests to feel at home and make their stay 5 star, but we will not allow anybody to take advantage of our hospitality. This type of guests ruin it for everybody as next time we would think twice if we really want to lower our rates and deal with such immature behavior. Karen’s husband have called after being charged for extra guests that he will leave us the bad review and will put us out of business, then threatening us with legal action, cursing and finally stating that he will not pay a penny for his stay and that he will deny even being in our Lake House. At the end, he disputed all the charges. I would not recommend renting to this family.

Very clean, very roomy and overall great house to vacation in

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay in your lovely home even though it was just for the weekend. We wish we could have stayed longer especially since Sunday was a rainy day. Overall the house was great, very clean, roomy and just the place you wanted to stay if you have a large family and wanted to be very close to the lake. Will consider renting again next year. Thanks!
