Beautiful home in a beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

We had 11 of us total and we all fit very comfortably. The upstairs room was perfect for the kids! So many wonderful things to take advantage of from the hammock, to the fire pit, to the kayaks and paddle boat. We didn't even have time this trip to take advantage of it all. A wonderful spot for a family trip. Very quiet neighborhood.

Everything was clean and well stocked. Communication with our host was great. She was available quickly when I had questions or concerns. Very helpful.

The only thing I will mention if you are planning a summer trip is there is no central AC or window units. (I overlooked this in the listing when I booked.) Between the elevation, the leaf canopy, and the breeze off the lake, we were pretty comfortable the entire trip; just a few times of feeling warm. But if you plan a July or August trip, I thought it was worth mentioning.

Overall, we were incredibly happy with this spot!! I would definitely visit again. We may have to plan a fall trip to enjoy the changing leaves!

Perfect Week

  • 5 of 5

The location was great for the tours we took in Warwick and Walkill, the MET was wonderful. We were challenged by just having 2 bathrooms but when your sitting by the beautiful lake with a fire and the people you love most all around, nothing else mattered. The beds were comfortable and the views from every window made even the rainy days great!!

The pictures didn't do this beautiful home justice. We had guests ranging from 10 years old to 75 years old. Our stay was beyond what we expected. The home is huge and very clean. Katy was very attentive to all messages and replied quickly. The favorite part of the home for everyone was the huge dining and living area. We gathered every morning and evening for meals and conversation. The younger ones loved their loft that was quite private. My husband and I greatly enjoyed the master bedroom. It was completely private and the view was astonishing. Our older friends enjoyed the main level and not having to climb stairs. Katy keeps the house well stocked with paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, dish tabs, foil, plastic bags and wrap, soap, etc. The fire pit was wonderful for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs and enjoying the beautiful breeze and sunset. We traveled 14 hours to visit and it was worth every minute. Thank you Katy for sharing your beautiful home!

What a great experience! Wish we could have stayed longer.

This cabin on the lake in the mountains of North Jersey was nothing but AWESOME!

The cabin is large and well maintained. The view from the cabin overlooking the lake was beautiful.

We had snow and built a snowman, went sledding, played on the ice frozen lake and went ice skating.

We would do it all over again. We would love to take a trip during the summer to the same cabin.

Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy your beautiful cabin.
