The space

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
3. Mt. 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.

Employed within the financial services sector, i enjoy the opportunities to pick up and be spontaneous. With that in mind, it creates a perfect opportunity to share a space outside of NYC which can be reached without needing a car. All the amenities of the outdoor life, with grea…
