About the owner: I enjoy family and friends, tennis, hiking, vegetable gardening and all kinds of gatherings with families.

Let us help you host a family reunion or corporate meeting here. Catering is available. Micro greens are picked freshly in season each day. We know that you will enjoy your time at Lakewood House!

Why the Owner Chose Croton-on-Hudson, NY, USA:
Lakewood House property is a 23 acre estate. The farmhouse was built in 1895. Unique architectural touches and a modern cook's kitchen with Viking appliances, built-in Miele coffee maker is a great combination! Working fireplace, beautiful wide plank flooring, circular entrance foyer, Perfect for family reunions where up to 24 people will sleep comfortably and families can sit together in large dining room for special celebratory dinners! Family activities, sports or simply enjoying the beautiful views with a glass of wine or a cup of early morning coffee.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Perfect privacy and peaceful setting yet under an hour to Manhattan and Grand Central Terminal. I can shop on 5th Ave. and be home to feed my chickens in an hour. It's fantastic. Reunions are special. Varied activities keep all of your generations happy - be it attending a Broadway play in the city or finishing in the pond, to mountain biking. Everyone is happy. Let's cook a beautiful, fresh dinner from my selection of organic garden vegetables!
