Lounge out on our outdoor sectional sofa and dream the day away. We have a paddle board shop just 1/2 mile down the road that rents by the hour, 1/2 day and full very reasonable. The Appalachian trail runs behind our house and there are several entry points nearby. Bring your dog down to a little secluded (B Beach) where you can launch non motorized boats and play fetch. Marinas rent pontoon boats. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets are just an added treat:) 1 bedroom has a queen size bed, dresser and no lake view but a babbling brook that runs outside the window for a tranquil sleep.

Other things to note

Dog & Family friendly. However, not entirely toddler friendly as we have an open, floating staircase to the second floor with no railing and no real yard to speak of except a little area suitable for a dog. However, we do have plenty of open space for kids to run around between the 1500 square foot open floor plan and massive enclosed front deck on the main floor. We also have private beach club with life guard on duty and a white sand beach that everyone enjoys!

No smoking in house but on deck ok just be tidy with the cigarette butts . No flicking them in garden, woods or driveway, please. No cats ( we are both allergic! ). House broken dogs OK. This is our everyday home that we built ourselves so we ask that you treat it with respect, enjoy it and care for it as you would your own and leave it as you found it. Please pick up your own firewood bundles at any of our local convenience stores and bring your own beach towels. Plenty of white fluffy bath towels are provided for use at home. We have a private well for water so you may want to bring bottled water for drinking as the mineral content may make the taste not be to your liking. Our neighbors are great and our houses close together. Everyone hangs out on their decks to BBQ & enjoy the view but usually after midnight we all keep the music down outside and keep it low key out of respect for the early risers. After BBQing please make sure all is shut down/off on the grill. Do not leave any food outside as it will attract animals. Other than (email hidden)d have FUN and RELAX :)))

Best,
Ali

Wonderful weekend at an amazing house with fantastic hosts. The whole process was made incredibly easy by both Allison and Chris. Communication, check in, suggestions for local restaurants, paddle boards were all incredible. Fantastic house in a great location with incredible views.

Alison's place makes for an incredible getaway from the the city. I visited with 5 friends and we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful views, the amazing lake, and the surrounding attractions. It's really easy to get there using New Jersey Transit or a car. We definitely plan on visiting again.

My wife and I had a great time celebrating her birthday. Beautiful views and quiet. Great place to get away from the city for a bit.

We had a great stay at this lake house! It had more than enough space for two couples and a dog and is at the end of a quiet street with gorgeous lake views. There are several good options for outdoor activities in the area -- we hiked part of the Appalachian Trail one day and rented a boat and skis at Greenwood Lake Marina the other. (Call and reserve ahead of time.) We cooked in at the house every night and the kitchen was well-stocked for everything we needed. Alison was there to greet us when we arrived and replied quickly to texts when we had questions. Overall an excellent trip!

Ali made a last minute holiday possible for us with prompt replies, and shifting her personal schedule. The house was well appointed, and had a beautiful view of Greenwood Lake. Check-in/out was smooth, and instructions clear and easy. We had a lovely stay and would recommend to any guest. Thanks!

Great location and a lovely, spacious house. The lake view is amazing and the huge deck is all about the view. Very private and peaceful and only a short drive to all the vineyards. Alison and Chris are great hosts.

Ali's house was beautiful. It was open and spacious and really comfortable. The views of the lake were amazing. We all had a great time and it was special to meet Ali when we got there. Ali had worked with me one month ago when we had to postpone our trip because our dog had emergency surgery. Ali made us feel at home and gave us a lot of good info about the area.

Alison User ProfileAlison is a superhost.

Nature lover with NYC in my heart. I live on a beautiful lake 45 miles north of Manhattan in a custom built and designed home that my ex-husband Chris and I worked on for almost 3 years to create. It's our personal sanctuary and little peace of heaven in an otherwise hectic world and we love to share it with friends and family. When I am not working you can often find me out to dinner in the city or on the lake paddle boarding, rowing & motor boating & relaxing. I love to travel to places that have beautiful surroundings & fun things to do. As long as there's good food, people & adventures to be had I am there! Life is good at the lake:)
