The house is located right on Whaley lake, with great swimming, boating and lake activities. When wanting to get out for a bit, there are plenty of things to do nearby.
There is a general store, grocery stores, Dunkin donuts, restaurants, movie theaters, parks, bars, skiing (beginner mountain), golf (and mini golf) all in the area (happy to give directions and names etc.)
About 20 minutes away is the town of Danbury, CT which has large stores for shopping, a larger restaurant selection and a couple more activities (i.e. bowling).

About: Hello! My name is Charles Greenwald. I live in New York City and work in the financial services industry. I have a love of the outdoors, and the lake home is one of my favorite places to spend my free-time.
Why Holmes, NY, USA:
I have been spending time at the house my whole life! Going there with my parents as a child, and more recently with friends, my girlfriend or my broader family. It represents the perfect getaway from the everyday city life. It is an easy place to be, allowing for a relaxing, carefree, cozy and most of all fun place to escape! There is plenty to do year round for both kids and adults, whether its a swim in the lake, a bbq right outside or going for a great hike right nearby on the Appalachian trail. Send me an email or call at anytime and I will be happy to answer any questions you have. Thanks!
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
I find the house to be a truly unique place to relax. It isn't far from the city but certainly feels like you are. It is a fantastic place to spend time with your friends & family and unwind for a short, or long vacation.
