About Bill Blake

I (Bill) and my daughter (Hannah) live in Rye, NY and love being on the water during the summer. We ski/snowboard during the winter and generally enjoy being outdoors. During the summer, our family wakeboards, waterskis, and wakesurfs as often as possible.

Bill Blake purchased this house in 2009

Why Bill Blake chose Candlewood Lake

When I began looking for a lake house I concentrated on Candlewood Lake because of its proximity to Rye and because it's relatively large size. We, as water-skiers, were concerned with having calm water for our sport and wanted a lake with plenty of room and places to find sheltered water. Candlewood has it all. We had seen a bunch of properties before coming upon this one and as soon as we saw it, we knew this was the one. It was remote, shaded, extremely close to the water and had a layout that we knew would suit the family. There are few things better than walking down to your boat on a weekday and seeing a beautiful, clean, calm lake just waiting to be played upon.

What makes this house unique

The benefits of this property is its overall comfort and cleanliness, its proximity to the lake and the overall sense of calm it allows. An added bonus is that it is a short walk to Green Pond which is as idyllic as a swimming hole could possibly be. Dinners on the covered deck are amazing. We framed the area with LED rope lights which give off just the right glow when eating a perfectly BBQ'd meal after an amazing day on the lake. Some of our greatest memories have been made enjoying meals with friends and family on that deck. It's such a quiet, rural location that its hard to believe that it's only 90 minutes to Manhattan (no traffic).

wonderful lakeside home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I made a last minute decision to get away for the holiday weekend, but we were slightly apprehensive about what we would be able to find on such short notice. After receiving prompt response to our inquiry from the owner Bill our minds where soon put at ease. Upon arriving to the house at night, the outside lights were on welcoming us for our stay. The house was very clean, the beds were made and all we had to do was set down our bags and enjoy a weekend on the lake. We woke the next morning to find ourselves nestled in a beautiful lakeside community. The lake was just a short walk down the driveway and across the road. There was also a beautiful little pond just up the hill that was great for swimming. When we weren’t at the lake we spent most of our time sitting out on the well-appointed deck, grilling, enjoying the scenery and quite. Bill was amazing to work with, he took great care of us. I would highly recommend this property for families or couples looking to get away! Thank you Bill for an awesome weekend.

Perfect family vacation, a MUST STAY.

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Candlewood Lake House for a week over the summer.

We brought our boat and all of the amenities were taken care of. Bill even arranged for us to have a slip while we were there. The house is impeccable and exactly what our family needed. Steps from the beach and slip, scenic, and serene, quiet, and family friendly. Each day the kids went to the dock to go fishing in the morning and the rest of the day we spent on the lake at the beach, sand island, or just cruising around. A few nights we stayed home and BBQed on the beautiful deck and other nights we went into New Milford to enjoy the "town".

We're already planning to book next year!

Bill, the owner met us at the house, showed us around, and even helped my husband get the boat into the water! Highly recommend. Can't wait to come again next year!
