Overview

About the property

Lake-Front Log Cabin (c 1940)

Just 50 miles northwest of New York City, this log cabin situated on Pinecliff Lake, on the NJ/NY state border, was built in 1940 and fully restored in 2008. Two bedrooms on the main floor sleeps 1-4 exceptionally comfortably. Outdoor deck with round table and benches as well as additional Adirondack seating; cantilvered deck over the lake; great place to sit and read, or simply soak up the sun. Deck also features a terra cotta chimnea (fire pitt), which is great for cool nights, sipping a glass of wine (or cocktail of choice!) and watching the sunlight slowly dip behind the mountain.

If you're looking for a place to unwind from the hustle and bustle, quiet nights (and days), this is the place.

About Dennis Constantine

After living and working in New York City for the past 20+ years, I decided I wanted a place to escape to on the weekends; a laid back place with little-to-no-stress. A friend called me one day in May 2007, from the cell phone saying he just drove by this great log cabin, for sale; has 'your name all over it.' So I asked him to send me a pic from his iPhone and the next I know, I'm in contract to buy the cabin. Funny how these things happen.

Dennis Constantine purchased this cabin in 2007

Very relaxing and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect. We enjoyed the backyard, dock and lake. We would definitely stay again.

We had no issues and everything was explained thoroughly in detailed instructions.

Just the perfect escape for the week! The cabin was everything it was described to be 😃?....True serenity lakeside in a small town away from the city. Dennis was the perfect host - in touch with him if we needed an answer to any question. Thanks for a wonderful week !

Our stay at the cabin was wonderful. Kayaked in the lake, went hiking, shopping, lots of resting and had great food at some local restaurants.

Like upstate but a quick drive away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is everything described in the owner's write-up and by most reviewers. The home is clean and cozy. Once outside you are aware that neighbor homes are close by and you're not in the middle of nowhere, but it is a small trade off. The bottom line with this cabin is that it feels very much like a cozy Adirondacks lake house without the six-hour drive! I would return and recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a clean, well-maintained, easy getaway destination.

Peaceful and Comfortable Stay

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin is very charming, with appropriate furnishings and a stone fireplace that make you feel as though you're in the Adirondacks. The kitchen is well stocked but small, but we had no trouble making our meals here. The only thing that didn't really work for us was the grille...it seemed to be clogged up but we managed without it. The bathroom is especially nice and the master bedroom was very roomy.

The owner is very helpful and extremely organized. Everything was clearly explained and all inquiries were answered right away. The neighborhood was very quiet and it felt private. Shopping (and pizza) are just a few minutes away...very convenient! My family loved kayaking off the front of the cabin and swimming at the beach club.

I would highly recommend this cottage for a relaxing getaway.

Super Lake Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Super cabin - great location. The lake is small but very pretty and the cabin sits on a great waterfront. The owner takes great pride in the house and the property. All you need is provided. Wish we could be there in the summer with all the flowers and the garden in bloom. The owner is a pleasure to work with!! You won't be sorry if you rent this spot.
