This home is my own personal little treasure decorated with love to provide guests with the opportunity to either entertain or have some well deserved R&R or both! I hope you enjoy it as much as my previous guests have.
Lodging includes downstairs portion of a two floor cabin. On this floor is one bedroom with electric fireplace, one bathroom with claw foot tub & heated floor, living area which has space for a queen sized air mattress (which I can provide), private porch off bedroom with hammock & shaded futon along with use of the side yard which has chaise lounges, picnic table & chiminea. Please note, the kitchen would be a shared space. But other than that, house has two separate entrances and chances are, our paths would not cross which would allow for your full privacy.
House is situated in a cliff overlooking Orange County's largest lake - Greenwood Lake & the Sterling Forest Mountain. Perfect location for New Yorkers looking for a city reprieve as well as travelers interested in a well rounded NYC get away where both country and city can be found within a 1 hour 40 minute bus ride. House has water & mountain views but it also is surrounded by trees which affords plenty of privacy and a great hideaway for bird enthusiasts. Greenwood Lake is only 41 miles north west of the George Washington Bridge but fills all the senses with the country life.
No car needed is NJ Transit bus 196/197 brings you back and forth to NYC in 100 minutes. An additional transit option is NJ Transit / Port Jervis Train Line to Tuxedo station (approximate 60 minute ride). From there, a taxi is a 15 min ride.
Lake and mountain views are all season. The Appalachian Trail can be accessed in a 5 minute car ride or the more daring hikers, the AT can be accessed via a steep access trail behind my house. So just ask for the details and you can be on your way!
Summertime affords seasonal blossoms with lavender bushes which attract a variety of butterflys. My rose garden is a work in progress that I refuse to give up on! Iris's & peonies bloom in the earlier part of the season.
Greenwood Lake hosts free concerts and events at our town beach every weekend during the summer. This allows for a wonderful & inexpensive night out. If you want to exude even less effort, concerts can always be heard from chaise lounge chairs in yard while warming your toes in front of the chiminea.
The lake is home to many largemouth bass, muskies, and smallmouth bass in addition to Chain Pickerel, Yellow Perch, Bluegills, and Walleye. There are also good populations of catfish. It is rated among New Jersey's top 3 Largemouth bass waters. Experienced boaters can rent pontoon boats from South Shore Marina. And if ice fishing is your thing, it is a favorite Winter sport here.
For winter enthusiasts, Greenwood Lake is surrounded by three family & fun friendly ski lodges:
1. Mountain Creek - Vernon NJ - 15 miles
2. Tuxedo Ridge - Sterling Forest NY - 5 miles
(website hidden). Peter - Warwick NY - 3 miles
Greenwood Lake is part of the town of Warwick which offers the small town shopping experience of a main street filled with boutiques, antiquing, cafes & independent book stores.
Local reknown activities include wineries, Rennaissance Faire, ski resorts, spa's & golf.
Your outdoor activities can be nicely finished off with a delish fireside, casual dinner at the Iron Forge restaurant.
For those who love to shop, Woodbury Commons is dangerously close and is only a 20 minute drive.
Restaurant and bar is not only within walking distance, but it also provides delicious food, excellent wine selection & weekend entertainment.
Clean & Fluffy Towels
Coffee maker along with coffee varieties
Pantry full of spices

This house was absolutely fantastic. The two porches had gorgeous full lake views and each had relaxing accommodations. The house comfortably slept 6 (plus three dogs), and everyone was very happy.
Additionally, Beth is an absolutely sweetheart and is very accommodating. We will definitely be revising her house.
Beth's house has incredible views and is comfortable and warmly decorated. We spend a weekend with friends (8), went skiing to Mountain creek which is half an hour away and had a great time enjoying fireplace, the music equipment and the fully equiped kitchen. Beth was extremely open, friendly and helpful for any questions we had and very uncomplicated. We highly recommend Beth's house! I bet it is very enjoyable in the spring sommer-time, I hope we can go again!
Beth was an incredible host! We had a great weekend in her house; everything was as expected or better. We stayed over a long weekend with 9 people and were very comfortable. The surrounding town, Greenwood Lake, has grocery stores and plenty of eateries that we wish we could have explored further. Our group has used AirBnB before for weekend excursions and this has been by far our best experience.
Highly recommended. Very few rentals feel as homey and comfortable as Beth’s lake house. As a small group, we rented the house for a couple of nights while spending Thanksgiving with friends in the area. Everything was perfect. After a longer than expected trip due to the weather the night before, we settled in quickly and were able to light a fire, order pizza (which arrived in record time), watch tv and play a few games. The historical house is gorgeous and has the most incredible view of the lake. The Victorian bathtub off of the master bathroom also has the same view and is nothing short of magical. To top it all off, Beth is the most accommodating host and provided many recommendations on where to go in the area. Everything was in immaculate order when we arrived. We did our best to leave it that way. Many thanks to Beth! We hope to come back soon. Anyone renting here will be in very good hands.
One word. Wonderful.
The house is great and Beth is an attentive and responsive host.
Great house, nice location. Beth was very quick to respond to all questions as well.
This was a businesswise booking and Beth was a very caring and helpful host! The group really loved the whole place and it was very easy to accommodate 6 people.
Catchwords: Cozy, colorful, very clean, folksy, wellness
Many thanks, dear Beth!

Peaceful place, great host, as advertised. Would recommend for a great weekend away from noise. Fireplace is killer and seals the deal.
What a fantastic retreat from the city. Beth's house was a perfect spot for a long weekend getaway. The lake views are gorgeous, the fireplace blazes, and the home is comfortable and obviously much loved. We will return! Beth was a pleasure to deal with, and full of great suggestions.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
