Our woodland retreat in Newton NJ is on 10 private acres and just 75 minutes from NYC. The historic cabin comfortably sleeps 4 with plenty of windows to view the lake and surrounding woods. It's one of only six private properties overlooking a state-owned, 117 acre glacial lake.

The space
Elements of our cabin were built 100 years ago from a Sears cabin kit. The cabin is rustic in nature, with the plumbing, electricity, kitchen and bathroom up to basic modern standards. One bedroom has a queen bed, the 2nd bedroom has a bunk bed.

Eat-in-kitchen includes dishwasher, toaster, microwave, stove, refrigerator, coffee maker and plenty of pots, dishes, utensils and a large picture window with stunning lake views.

New Jersey weather ranges from hot & humid to quite cool. Two propane heaters warm up the cabin quickly and there are fans in every room.

Amenities: Washer & dryer, filtered well water, gas grill, bath towels and linens. Pets negotiable. Kids are most welcome.

There is no WiFi nor air conditioning.
All major cell carriers work.
When possible, I can be flexible with check in and check out times. No smoking inside the cabin.

Where you’ll be

Newton, New Jersey, United States

There are a number of hikes from the cabin, and nearby activities include antiquing, nature preserves, golfing, farmers markets, pick-your-own farms, waterpark and flying lessons.

Take the canoe out to explore the beaver lodge or see an eagle swoop down to catch a fish; paddles and life jackets are provided. Gas powered motors are prohibited on the lake. From the private dock, jump into the fresh water or wade in slowly from the adjacent shallow entry.

In this serene location, hard to believe just ten minutes away are large grocery stores and a variety of big box stores.
