Roomy Lakeside Home With Great Views And Minutes From Trout Town USA (Roscoe)

Roscoe, NY, USA
  • House1800 sq. ft.
  • Bedrooms4
  • Sleeps10
  • Bathrooms2
  • Half Baths1
  • Mininum Stay2 - 7 nights

4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths With 1st Floor Open Floorplan And Deck Overlooking Lake

Our lakeside home sits on a hillside overlooking beautiful Tennanah Lake (largest private lake in the Catskills). We love the quiet serenity of being out in the country, while still only 10 minutes from Roscoe stores and restaurants. We enjoy the house in all 4 seasons, but our favorite season is the summer. Nights are usually cool, with ceiling fans and open windows keeping it quite comfortable. We think you'll love falling asleep with the sounds of water lapping at the dock and waking up to great sunrises. Our spring-fed lake is clear and refreshing - perfect for a summer day swim. Look for the eagles that nest across the lake.

Great fishing - Tennanah lake is stocked with bass, trout and perch. We are also minutes from world class trout fishing streams and several outfitters in Roscoe.

Our home is on a hillside, so the great views come with somewhat steep path down to the water. We have a floating dock and the water gets deep quickly. May not be suitable for families with very young children or those with physical limitations.

                                                              Super views from almost every room. Neat and clean. Three full sized baths made getting ready for a wedding easier. We initially had a bit of trouble finding the house because our GPS lost its signal. We stopped and turned around a couple of times so use printed directions.

                                                              Fabulous house

                                                              We had a wonderful stay at this house. It's not only that it RIGHT on the lake, the house was well and thoughtfully stocked, making it a very fun and relaxing vacation.

                                                              The beds were comfy, the towels plentiful and there were about a million floaties for the 5 kids to play with.

                                                              Thank you for the loan of your beautiful house

                                                              The property was exactly like the pictures. Quiet beauty...

                                                              We had a great week at the lake house. There were 6 adults and three teenagers in our group. We enjoyed kayaking, fishing and hiking. We cooked all our meals at the house and ventured into both Roscoe and Livingstone Manor. The towns were disappointing as very little was open during the week. If you are looking for a quiet, scenic getaway, this is the place. Our host, Carol, was phenomenal. She always answered my questions within minutes and when I had a couple issues with the house, she sent someone to check it out promptly. I was very impressed with her genuine concern. I would recommend staying at Lake Tennanah. The lake is private and quiet.

                                                              Wonderful house to get away on a peacful lake

                                                              The house was a great set up for fun on the lake .Inside was well stocked and a great layout.Windows all along the front for a beautiful view of the lake and the eagles every day.Out side haveing the big raft and kayaks

                                                              Made for a lot of fun in the water.Every night we had a fire down by the.water.Super relaxing and totally enjoyed my family .I would highly recommend this house cor a great get away.Carol was super helpful

                                                              The perfect lake getaway!

                                                              This house was perfect for a week at the lake with friends. The house is spacious and well-maintained, and had everything we needed to relax for the week. The view and lake access right outside the back door werr truly amazing. Carol was extremely helpful and responsive with her communication. We would definitely return again in the future!

                                                              An incredible lake house experience!

                                                              Theresa G.

                                                              Tennanah Lake has always held a special place in my heart. My grandmother's family owned several properties in Tennanah Lake from the 1920's until the early 1980's. I spent all of my childhood summers there and have many wonderful memories.

                                                              My husband and I both wanted to get away from all the hustle and bustle of our busy lives on Long Island and decided to find a nice, quiet lake setting for our vacation. I figured I'd give Tennanah Lake a try, and as soon as I saw Carol's house on VRBO, I knew it was the place for us!

                                                              As soon as we arrived we knew the lake house was everything we'd hoped for and more! The lake vista is beautiful!!! We used the kayaks every day and the fire pit every night. The house itself was lovely. The rooms were even more spacious than they appeared on the website. The kitchen was super organized and literally had everything you could possibly need. The garage was clean and well stocked with floats, life vests, and paddles. It had a garbage and recycling area and a neat laundry section too. It really was perfect for our needs.

                                                              We really enjoyed our week long stay. We would love to book the house again!

                                                              The homeowners were terrific. Carol was quick to respond to any questions we had and she and John have done an incredible job making sure their home will feel like your home while you are there! Their roomy lakeside home with great views is a wonderful place to spend a vacation!

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you so much for your great review and kind words. We are happy we could help make your vacation so enjoyable.
