This is a wonderful lakefront house on a nine acre non- motorboat lake nestled up against the Shawangunk Mountain range. This two-level house has a beautiful open layout, and tons of light in the spacious common areas. The living room is all windows, facing out to the lake. The huge master bedroom has en suite bathroom and the main level has two additional bedrooms, one of which has a full/twin bunk bed, the other has a lovely antique full bed. There's a deck, a patio and a private dock for fishing, swimming or boating—the house has three kayaks for guest use! The open kitchen is great for cooking and entertaining.

Beautiful Lake House Getaway
average rating of 4.75 based on 8 reviews

very beautiful view to wake up to everyday.

  • 3 of 5

The owners were very accommodating and the house was warm and cozy. The water pressure was a little hard to deal with since we had 6 people, but we made it work, Waking up to the view was very memorable.

Comfy Catskill country home.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent Fri-Sun at Brian's home to get out of the city for a weekend and we are so glad we did. After a day of hiking in nearby Lake Minnewaska, we warmed up under the cashmere blankets watching the lake outside the living room window. The bedrooms are all beautifully decorated, with vintage touches throughout, and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook and bake all weekend. I must mention the shower head and water pressure was fantastic, and since I am picky about my showers, this can be important! The beauty of his home surpassed our expectations. So close to the city ( no traffic on Sunday afternoon returning to the city from Pine Bush!) and yet the perfect place to retreat to. Thank you Brian!

Cozy and Spacious Lake House!

  • 5 of 5

Brian's lake house was everything I had hoped and more. The bedrooms are all well appointed, and everyone in my group was comfortable and happy. The spacious kitchen allowed us to cook all of our meals, and we enjoyed the nearby grocery store. We went for hikes every day, and spent afternoons reading or playing games looking out on the beautiful lake. Every aspect of booking, arriving, and departing was well managed, and I'll certainly be there again soon. Thanks for a wonderful stay, Brian!

Relaxing retreat on the water

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Brian's lake house. It is located close enough to town for quick grocery store runs, but isolated enough to make it ideal for a peaceful and relaxing vacation. The lake was great for swimming and the kayaks were fun to use. Brian was also very responsive to any needs/questions we had. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely recommend it!

Beautiful, right on the water

  • 5 of 5

We loved Brian's place. It seemed a little bigger in the photos, but it was plenty big enough for our group of 8. The open kitchen with views of the lake was beautiful. The kayaks were in great shape and we used them every day. And being able to walk downstairs and jump right in for a swim was fantastic. More often than not, it seemed we had the whole lake to ourselves. Brian was easy to communicate with and answered all questions promptly. If you come with little ones, watch them on the stairs -- the railing supports are set wide, and there is space to slip through. We had a blast and hope to return.

The house was all set up nicely, clean and beautifully situated right on the lake. Brian was great with anything we needed before our arrival. I was there with my family and had an amazing time. Recommended to anyone who wants to take a break and enjoy a wonderful place

Car: recommended

If you like hiking, don't miss Sam's Point Preserve. It's about a 10 minute drive up the mountain to beautiful views of the catskills and hudson valley. Minnewaska State park is another stellar place nearby to hike and cross country ski.

Pine bush is a quirky and quaint town with all of your daily needs. Make sure to ask locals about the alien sightings. Pine Bush is the UFO capitol of the East Coast! If you're in the mood for a yummy lunch, stop by Sweet Retreat Cafe and say 'Hi' to Mary, the owner. Their soups are ridiculously good.

For dinner, a local comfort food favorite is Mountainview restaurant. It's got a big menu filled with bigger dishes and smaller prices.
