Property description

Welcome to my Glenwood Mountain home ( Vernon ) located in beautiful Sussex County, in the northwest corner of New Jersey.
Home sits on 1.6 tranquil acres, National Park land behind and adjacent to the Appalachian Trail. Escape and step back into time. Originally built in the 1800's this home boasts country character and old world charm. My love of antiquing and unique collections has fully furnised this home.
Recently renovated & keeping with it's rustic appeal. Wide plank floors and beams in the living room and bedrooms, spacious bathroom with a deep antique claw foot tub, perfect for a nice hot bubble bath. Surrounded by nature, relaxation inside and out. Sussex County is well-known as a four-season recreational community. With our mountains and more than 80 lakes and streams, thousands of visitors are attracted here each year to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage, apple/ pumpkin picking, skiing in 2 major areas, 7 award winning golf courses all within a 5 mile radius, one of the worlds largest water parks, hiking, swimming, boating, fishing, NJ State Fair and Orange Co. (NYS) , festivals, antiquing in the beautiful historic town of Warwick, upscale restaurants with renowned chefs, to casual dining, cafe's and so much more. There is even a Drive-in theater in Warwick NY... all within minutes away.
For those truly looking to relax & unwind. Escape the commotion, hassle and bustle of your daily living. Enjoy natures surroundings listening to the birds, watching the deer and turkey cross, or squirrels on a chase. Travel the Appalachian Trail & bordering trails that open up to beautiful spring fed lakes only minutes from the house. Pack a lunch, grab a pole, throw out a line and enjoying some fishing. Take some quiet time to read a book, relax in the hammock, draw/ paint, perfect photo opportunities await or perhaps a possible song to compose while sitting around the fire pit. According to some of the old timers and as legend has it, locals gathered around sippin moonshine in the old still located on the property. Remains of a rock foundation stand in the back yard of what once housed a cow which provided fresh milk for the family then later to become a still to provide some entertainment and extra income. Many of songs and poems were written about these hills....
Rich in folkloar and wealthy in History, Sussex County is one of the last of 21 counties in New Jersey to retain its rural characteristics. Planning efforts within the county focus on retaining our rural character while moving forward into the next century.
This home offers both rustic and modern amenities, is clean, comfortable and in a great central location.
Come visit, get away, relax and enjoy life in the country, beautiful Sussex County with people and nature together.

Fall foliage is second to none with rich reds, yellows, oranges and golds coating the mountains and valleys. Come see what we have to offer, relax and enjoy.

Owner info

About the owner: I live on a small farm nearby with several goats, horses and chickens. Although I am less than a 10 min drive from the rental property I feel as if I'm on vacation whenever I'm there visiting even when there to work! There is such a calming serene feeling one experiences when there. I am pleased to be able to share my home with you, your family and friends and am anxious to hear about your new memorable experiences during your stay.
