Destination guide

A great escape, summer or winter

Greenwood Lake community has developed around the banks of the lake bearing the same name, which straddles the states of New York and New Jersey. With several marinas and restaurants, your picturesque Greenwood Lake vacation rental is a perfect getaway from the city – spend some time on the water or lace up hiking boots to hit the Appalachian trails. If you visit during the winter season, the slopes open and you can enjoy skiing, ice skating and sledding. You could even try your hand at a spot of ice fishing or skating on the 9-mile-long stretch of frozen water.

Things to do

Historical reenactments and scenic dining

The area holds a large renaissance faire – an entertaining day out for the whole family. Actors don period costume to entertain the crowds with jousting, sword fights and acrobatics. Stroll through the market to buy handmade products and authentic food. Some weekends the theme changes to pirates or Vikings, while October sees the park reopen for Halloween in the ‘Forest of Fear'. You'll find a wide choice of Greenwood Lake waterfront restaurants where you could grab a terrace table and enjoy the views as the sun goes down, with a bottle from the first wine-producing area in the country.


Come and ski, on water or snow

The first section of the Appalachian Trail opened near Greenwood Lake in 1931. The community has been welcoming hikers ever since, whether passing through or setting off. If hiking sounds too much like work, you can leave your Greenwood Lake vacation rental for a quiet stroll down to the lake itself. You can give waterskiing lessons a whirl or charter a boat for a more leisurely afternoon in the sun. In the depths of winter, you can hit the slopes of Mount Peter Ski Area. Besides skiing and snowboarding, the snow tubing area is great fun for groups.


Lakeside summers and off-season hikes

With both summer and winter activities, a Greenwood Lake vacation rental is a popular destination year-round. During the hot summer months when the lake is bustling, the trail temperatures can be a bit much for some. The spring and fall are the perfect times for wandering up in the Appalachians, when there are fewer vacationers in town and rental prices can be very good value. The winter season is, of course, very cold and the lake freezes over, but wrap up warm and you'll have easy access to the slopes.

Natural features

Lakeside critters and beaver dams

Like much of the rural northeast, the area around Greenwood Lake is teeming with wildlife and is considered an important area for birds. Canada geese, ring-necked ducks and wood ducks pass through, during their migrations. Bald eagles, hawks and warblers can be spotted nearby and, in Sterling Forest to the east, black bears roam the boundaries of the park. Beaver are also prevalent, building their dams and lodges in the numerous ponds. Visitors in summer are treated to the chorus of bullfrogs every evening, while bats come out to play, alongside racoons and opossums.
