About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 7-8)



Welcome to our charming rustic lakeside cottage on Lake Owassa in Northwest New Jersey. The cottage (The Woodbine) dates back to 1921. You need not drive far from New York City to find a great vacation spot. On the other hand, we are no more than 1 1/2 hours from the city. (We often go into the city for shows and Yankee games!)

The Woodbine is lake front and directly connected to your private dock, only 25 feet from the front porch, via a shaded wooden path. Enjoy swimming, canoeing, kayaking or rowing in the boats at the cottage. There is a great screened-in wrap-around porch with a large dining area, an indoor dining room for more intimate dinners and an eat-in kitchen. All of the bedrooms have vaulted ceilings and can comfortably accommodate two guests. One of the bedrooms actually has three single beds. The view across the lake is of the Kittatiny Mountains and the Appalachian Trail. It is wonderful to enjoy dinner on the porch overlooking the lake as the sun sets on the ridge.

We have vacationed around the country in homes and condos and know what kinds of things are important to renters. Most important is a clean space and a home where you don't need to bring along sheets and towels in your luggage! Plenty of dishes and mugs for meals, towels for the lake, extra linens and blankets, listings of local restaurants, shops for 'antique-ing', rainy day activities list for adults or kids (including lots of games and videos/DVDs in the cupboard). The house is also child-friendly, with plenty of room on the porches for playing. Fishing is also fun at the lake as people often pull out good sized bass and pickerel. The lake is stocked and monitored for any conditions with water quality.. Which means there are NO issues with water quality.

There are many festivals and the New Jersey State Fair (you can visit their website to check out the dates) that are held at the Sussex County Fairgrounds which is only 5 miles from the cottage. Some of the more popular are the Crawfish Festival (Hugely popular with wonderful food and music!), Garden Shows, AKC shows, horse shows and of course, the REAL NJ State Fair.

The cottage is heated and available as a 3-season rental, from mid April-October 31st, mostly on a weekly basis. We have a three night minimum from April 20-June 30 and September 10-October 31. Spring is a lovely time to be at the lake. Pick an extended weekend stay or a great mid-week vacation. Summer is warm and the sunsets can't be beat for a weeklong, Saturday to Saturday stay, but the Fall with all of the leaves changing color is nothing short of spectacular! Sorry, no pets allowed.

We are now taking reservations for all dates in 2017. See below for pricing information. Returning guest10% discount available, multiple week 10% discount available to any guest.

We accept PAYPAL.
