We love having the island all to ourselves.
A week in heaven on lake Hopatcong
This home on Cow Tongue Point on Lake Hopatcong was a piece of heaven. The property has a unique history as a former Yacht Club in the early 1900’s. The first floor has rich wood paneled floors and ceilings and a gorgeous stone fireplace. The kitchen is modern, roomy and immaculate. It is thoroughly equipped with all your cooking needs. A large party can easily sit around the beautiful dining room table with an additional kids table or game table nearby. The upstairs bedrooms were clean, comfortable and bright. I was especially impressed with the two modern updated full bathrooms. Air and heat were in great working order to keep us all comfortable whatever the weather. Outside the two decks had spectacular views of the lake. Upstairs had a full shuffleboard court that was used everyday to the delight of everyone. There was ample seating, tables and comfortable lounge chairs. The grounds were unique in that this house is literally on its own island that has a walking bridge to access the place. We brought our small hound and she loved walking the island and watching the boats go by. Evenings were fun with great cable TV and plenty of games for all ages. It was early May during our visit so we did not use the kayaks but in warmer weather they would be a big hit. If you fish I can tell you that our cove was the go to place to catch the many varieties of fish in the lake. The owner was terrific. We had some confusion opening the lockbox for the key on Day 1 and he answered our phone call immediately and talked us through the process . You will find this vacation home a dream, we certainly did!
Perfect family retreat
We had a great time at Cow Tongue Point! I'm not sure what we loved the most. The amazing history of this property, the 360 degree views the ease of settling in (all bedding, kitchen supplies, bath supplies and such provide) or the amazing family time we enjoyed. Highly recommend. Many thanks to the owners. We couldn't figure out the handicap chair and they replied promptly to help out. Couldn't recommend this property enough.
Would recommend the house & hope to return
Beautiful location, with old world charm, well furnished! Well equipped kitchen. Would have loved to enjoy the house in good weather & on all the decks, with plenty of outside furniture & activities. A perfect place for a family gathering as we were there for a wedding. We would love to return in the summer. Thank you
Historical home on a active lake
Six adults enjoyed the beauty of Lake Hopatcong either sitting or rocking on the lake-front porch or kayaking on the water on Cow Tongue Point island at historical Maxim Yacht Club. Shuffleboard on the many-seated second floor deck was a blast! Owner had the home stocked with everything needed to enjoy cooking, sleeping, indoor and outdoor recreation as well as personal hygiene. We would have wished for less weeds as fishing or swimming off the property was not productive. Road too busy to comfortably walk around and no town to enjoy shops. Clothes dryer takes forever to dry. We definitely would enjoy revisiting as this island is very dramatic and private! Great location to enjoy the peacefulness, boats, water skiers, water rafts, sunrise and a well-stocked home! Thank you Rick!
Absolutely perfect is all I can say
Perfect in every way. Hoping to return soon
