A magical place only an hour from NYC with stunning sunset views & boating dock.
This magical getaway, just an hour from New York City, is like putting yourself inside a painting of a lush lake and charming Victorian-era mansion with a huge wraparound porch overlooking the magnificent Lake Hopatcong. The house sits atop a beautiful hilltop with a panoramic view of the sunset and deep blue lake from every window in the house. Picture yourself with your morning coffee on this veranda while the lake shimmers in front of you. Or sunning on the dock below waiting to go tubing, water-ski or swim. You'll never want to leave, but if you need a break, some of the best restaurants and shopping are a quick boat ride across the lake. The house is meticulously clean and well-maintained; it is also charming and comfortable, with a fireplace in the living room and 5 beds of sleeping spaces. There is a full kitchen at your disposal and a beautiful dining room with lake views. But you are on vacation so who needs a kitchen when there is a BBQ grill outside. A perfect, lakefront house on the water only 45 minutes from Manhattan NYC, 20 minutes from Newark Airport, and 20 minutes from Mountain Creek Ski & Snowboard Resort or Action Water Park in the summer. Also 30 minutes from the Poconos Mountains and Resorts. The home is set on Lake Hopatcong, the largest lake in New Jersery, with sunset lake views from the windows in the home and beach access only steps away, if you want to go for a swim in the warmer weather, or an ice skate in the colder months, or just sit and sip hot chocolate. Close to a quaint Main Lake Market with cozy lounge area and seating. Nearby are some great restaurants, Alice's and The Windlass, take a cruise on the Lotta, or play some lakeside miniature golf, convenient stores like Target, Walmart, Christmas Tree Shop, a large mall, farmers market and supermarkets. Beautiful state parks with beachfront and picnic areas to relax and have fun with the family and friends. Right on the lake are 4 restaurants where you can dock your boat, or rent a paddleboat, canoe, pontoon, or bicycle. Our property is absolutely old world Charming, with a beautiful stone entrance into the water and a dock slip to park your boat. The home has 1 king size bed and 2 twin beds in the lakefront 2nd bedroom and 2 twin daybed trundles in the 3rd bedroom, with ample room for a large aerobed. The kitchen is fully stocked and has everything you need for your vacation. Equipped with heat, wifi, streaming Netflix, piping hot water for a nice shower after a day of skiing make this affordable spot one of the most sought after places to be.

Best Practices for The Lake House:
Below you will find a few guidelines to help you along with your stay in our home.
-We have a strict no shoe policy in every area of the house, we ask you to please be as diligent as possible to maintain this throughout your stay. Even if you are going in and out of the front and back patio doors, we ask you to remove your shoes.
****Very important: There is absolutely no eating or drinking on the couch or in the living room whatsoever. This is probably our most important rule in the house. Please make sure all kids and guests in your party know this.
-Do not remove the cover off the couch. If it happens to come off, please put it back on.
-After using the shower in the master bathroom, please wipe up any water that splashes on the floor with the provided towel for the floor as we don't have a shower door.
- Please be mindful of the marble sink counter top in the master bathroom and downstairs power room, as it is very porous and stains easily.
- Do not, under any circumstance, move any of the furniture.
-Absolutely No Smoking inside the house.
-Please do not remove the Dining Room tablecloth. We are happy to wash it after your departure. All linens can be left on the beds at your departure, as well.
-Please NO adults on the trampoline it is for children only.
-We ask that you do not throw ANYTHING AT ALL other than the provided Scott’s toilet paper, down the toilet as it will cause a sewage problem for the house as the grinder can not handle anything other than toilet paper (ie no wipes, even disposable ones please, feminine products, etc.)
-Please make sure that there is no food, or even crumbs, left outside on the tables, patio floor, or outside garbage can on porch. There are raccoons here, there are bears here, and there are bugs here. We are at a lake and if food is not cleaned properly there will be animals on the porch. We suggest vacuuming with the provided electric sweeper and a light spray and wipe of the tables. Please empty the patio garbage once a day, as well, if there is food in the garbage can.
-Please make sure to clean the grill and close it up after each use.
-The oven and microwave instructions are left in the kitchen.
-Please don't bring any of our glassware outside. We provide plastic for outdoor use. Also we ask that the towels provided be kept for indoor use only.
-The house is to be used for only the number of guests disclosed in the booking. Under no circumstances are there to be any parties here, or guests invited over without first getting permission from us in writing. Anyone found in the house that is not in the immediate party will be considered a break of rental agreement, immediate eviction, and forfeiture of your security deposit and nights remaining.
-Upon check out, please bring your garbage up to the garage and appropriately sort it for recyclables. You may leave all the sheets and linens on the beds and leave the key under the front door mat.
-Kindly reply that you've read these practices and agree to our rental terms. This will serve as our rental agreement.
