About Eric Gerckens
4 Brothers from Westfield, NJ built this house for their families (12 children) in 2005.
Eric Gerckens purchased this House in 2005
Why Eric Gerckens chose Greentown
One of the brothers has been coming to this lake since high school, more than 20 years. During a family birthday party, they came up with the idea of owning a vacation property between all the families. Twelve (12) years later, we're still going strong and enjoying every moment we have as a family.
What makes this House unique
We fell in love with the large lakefront property, and built a custom house to accommodate 4 families. The functionality of the house, allows us to enjoy all activities together without feeling crowded. We chose an open floor plan with enough room for 22 people to be eating and enjoying each others company all in once space. We kept the house rustic in design with all cedar ceilings, 8 foot alder doors, alder wood kitchen cabinets, and a beautiful huge stone fireplace as the centerpiece.

Beautiful, large house, great hosts!
We spent Thanksgiving at the house with 18 people. The house was great, and could easily accommodate the large group. The porch overlooking the lake was a perfect spot to watch the beautiful sunsets, and the house was great for just hanging out when it was cold outside.
Eric and Karl were so helpful and kind. We would highly recommend this house!
The BEST family reunion ever at the lake!
There aren't enough stars to review this fantastic , stunning lake house! It gets 5 + stars from us!!!! Eric and Mike were helpful beyond belief answering all of our questions. They did so quickly too! The beautiful lake front home that they built is a sight to see. Pictures truly do not do it justice. You can see the labor of love that went in to this home! The space, the view, the water, the amenities, the decor .......were all amazing. There were 22 of us! We traveled from 4 different states. We all had ample space and lots of common areas to gather. This was by far our best family reunion ever! Thank you to the Gercken family for sharing their lake front home with our family!
Best home on the lake!
We have rented homes on the lake for many years and this is by far the most beautiful home we've ever had. It didn't feel like a rental, it really felt like we were home. The home is kept is such excellent condition, spotlessly clean & stocked with everything you could need & more! The outdoor seating & view is second to none. The family we worked were all wonderful. One more accomodating than the next. If you're lucky enough to reserve a week here you will not be disappointed. We had 21 people & never felt the least bit crowded.
We are so happy we booked this house. It was so beautiful and the views of the lake stunning. The house was so well stocked and the owners Mike and Eric were so easy and nice to deal with. The lay out of the house was perfect with all 4 masters having their own bathrooms. You get a very welcoming and warm feeling from this house . You can just tell by the family photos and decor they spend fun times here making great memories. That’s the way I go through life wanting to create memories for my family. We had so much fun on the lake and back at the house. We did eat out one night but the rest of the time we had no reason to leave. We used the fire pit and the one day it was cool so we lit the beautiful fireplace in the house . Nice touch for sure . We hope to rent again in the future because we absolutely loved it !!
Beautiful, clean, and trainquil
My family of 19 members had a reunion here at the property. We stayed for three nights and everyone loved it! The house was beautiful, clean, and spacious. We all felt it gave enough privacy for the individual families (there are seven bathrooms). The two large refrigerators helped a lot since we brought a lot of food with us. We enjoyed boating, fishing and built bonfires. The lake view was gorgeous. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a large space in a beautiful location.
Fabulous Thanksgiving Holiday 2017 at the Gerkens
If there were 100 stars , that would be my rating!! We rented this house with no information but the reviews on the Gerken's website.
This house is beautiful, clean , inviting, gorgeous views but most importantly you can feel the love it was built with. Our family spent Thanksgiving 2017 at the Gerkens and it was the best. We were able to stuff 2 turkeys and make 2 pies at the same time because the kitchen island is so large. The house had everything we needed and a note in the pantry telling us to feel free to help ourselves. Everything was exactly as described and frankly better. Eric and Michael were so kind and helpful in answering my many questions as the vacation approached. I feel like the Gerken's are friends. We only left the house once ....there was so much there to do and it was so relaxing. You will not be disappointed and probably find that the Lakehouse exceeds your expectations. Our family ranged in age from 1 to 65 and plenty of 20 year olds. We loved singing around the firepits, darts, card games and much more. God bless the Gerken family for sharing their lovely home with us.
