About this listing

This 4 BR home with dock on Greenwood Lake is available for full or partial rental with a 2-night minimum.

The space

The main part of this house was built as a hunting lodge. It retains much of the original rustic charm but has been updated with traditional furnishings and antiques. It has been scouted as a photo site for Ralph Lauren and housed Hollywood actors during the filming of THE MAGIC OF BELLE ISLE in the summer of 2011.

Guests have access to all rented spaces and amenities on the property except that running water in the bath house is turned off in winter. Also, the property includes a carriage house that is not currently offered for rent.

When the downstairs is rented alone, the host may stay and access the upstairs from the main staircase through the living room. The host retains access to the waterfront and carriage house at all times and may perform reasonable maintenance on the property whenever necessary.

The house is in a residential lakeside community with a mix of full time, seasonal and weekend neighbors. There are many natural features to visit in the surrounding area including Sterling Forest, Harriman State Park, the Hudson River and the Appalachian Trail. Kayaks, sailboats and paddle boards may be rented from local vendors. Warwick has a public golf course and riding stables. There's a water park at Vernon, NJ and historic attractions in Warwick, Monroe, and West Point. In winter, Sterling Forest, Mount Peter and Vernon Valley/Great Gorge all offer skiing and snow boarding nearby. The Renaissance Faire and Warwick Applefest are annual events that attract many visitors. Woodbury Commons claims to attract more visitors than the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building, and UN combined!

The area is accessible to the public by train from Penn Station or bus from the Port Authority Terminal in New York City but, once here, visitors without vehicles may find it difficult to get around, so it's a good idea to rent one in advance. Four wheel drive vehicles are recommended in winter. In summer, the area is ideal for biking, though Mount Peter will present a definite challenge. There is ample parking at the house.

There are some nice restaurants in the area, particularly, Italian and German, but most local places tend to be casual and simple. The police are vigilant about drinking and driving. Warwick shows movies at a drive-in and has a bowling alley. All the surrounding communities have farmers' markets. Sugar Loaf features a number of galleries and specialty shops. But mostly, this is a place to enjoy relaxing at home.

This is the perfect location for a summer weekend! There is ample yard space for games, a grilla for BBQs, great sun porch with a big dinner table and a dock by the water.

Friends weekend getaway with 7 adults & 2 children - we had a fantastic time!! Spacious for everyone to hang out without feeling like we were on top of one another. Kitchen can get tight quickly but its all the more fun, especially with the main dining table with a perfect view of the lake! Unfortunately the weather kept up inside most of the time but that wasn't a problem, we grilled when we could, spent a little time fishing (brought our own rods) and just catching up with friends. John was a pleasure to communicate with!! Would/will definitely book again!!

We loved this place. We want to come back. The home is very spacious, and has many areas for eating indoors and outdoors for large and small groups. The interior decoration is very cozy and the outdoor spaces are beautiful. The kitchen has everything needed for preparing meals and the bedrooms are comfortable.

My family and I had a wonderful time at John's place. The house is beautiful, big but at the same time it's really cozy. In the mornings we would have our breakfast in the main dining room with a great view of the lake and in the evening, we would light the fire ans sit in the cozy livingroom. We would also cook dinner in the house, the kitchen is really well stocked with everything from herbs & spices, to pots, pans, plates etc. On Saturday we did a trip (just 20 minutes away) to Warwick, which is a really scenic town, we had lunch there and went for a nice stroll, after that we went to Warwick Valley Winery and did a wine tasting, the day was beautiful, so it was really lively and we had a great time!. On Sunday, after we checked out, we went to Sugarloaf, a cute, little town with antiques, arts & crafts stores. The weather was unseasonably warm for winter, so we skipped the slopes. But we would definitely like to go back in the summer or fall to take our kids fishing, apple-picking and a bunch of activities the Hudson Valley has to offer. I really recommend John's house if you are looking for a place to take your family on a nice weekend trip out of NYC.

We had a great stay with the whole family. Was better then expected. We really enjoyed our time by the lake and around the fire place. John was extremely responsive to all our questions and it was a pleasure communicating with him. Thank you, John!
