Come spend the weekend at our comfortable and cozy lakefront cottage tucked away in a serene country setting less than 2 hours away in Neversink, New York. Get away from the busy city life and relax in our beautiful retreat. Wake up with a cup of coffee to a peaceful morning on the deck overlooking Lake Paradise.
“Best four days ever! It's been a rough couple months and my family and I needed to escape the city. Patrick's place was straight to the point. Cozy cottage with killer views and surroundings. We got to fish at the lake which is right across and my son caught his very first fish. Very close to Peekamoose Blue hole and a great gas station store that sells just about everything. I think we spent more time outside on the deck and backyard than inside the home. The Kitchen was fully equipped with just about everything you may need. We grilled every single day and ate every meal on the deck. Lots of bugs, but all good because that's expected. It honestly felt like paradise to us because that's how badly we needed it. Also, there's a tiny waterfall behind the house, the sounds were everything.”
Simple is beautiful. Lake water lapping at the shore and a cozy bungalow for shelter. Natural beauty with comfortable solitude. Swim. Enjoy tours of close-by wineries. This spot is just 26 minutes north of Ithaca and Cornell University and 10 minutes south of Aurora and Wells College. The changing seasons make this a year round treat.
“My weekend at Jude’s place was nothing less than true serenity and magic! It is quiet and the nature surrounding the place is beautiful. I booked this bungalow for a place to clear my mind and catch up on some reading. I found myself spending most of my time staring at the lake, the birds, and most of all the magnificent sunsets & sunrises. I did not leave the bungalow once after I dropped my bags! The space is filled with little details and touches that truly make your stay. I enjoyed the CD player and selection of CDs. Before I left I booked another trip for the fall, and I can’t wait to return. Jude is 2 cabins over if you need anything at all, but she is still very respectful of your space. Thank you Jude for sharing your beautiful bungalow; I loved chatting with you, seeing your art and experiencing the simple & quiet life at the Minka.”
The Willow Treehouse is settled among the trees, overlooking a small, swimmable pond, on a wooded property 15min away from the town of Woodstock. It is cozy, yet has all you need to cook dinner, enjoy reading, chilling, or swimming. Separate spaces for chilling, writing a novel or enjoying the view. The sleeping loft is accessible by a ladder, and you would have to walk in with your luggage, so pack lightly. It is perfect for couples and solo adventurers.
“Avner & Maskit’s little treehouse is such a perfect weekend getaway location. Be prepared to put away your phone and laptop for the duration of your stay, and instead catch up on your reading, or spend time discovering all the little animals living in the pond, or try and remember your constellations when looking up at the night sky; if you’re up early enough you might catch a glimpse of a doe with her fawn in tow. The home itself is absolutely wonderful, with a great little record collection, full featured kitchen, and a great view to take in. The wood-burning hot tub is a bit of a challenge, but well worth it once you get it going. Avner & Maskit managed to build a wonderful woodland oasis; we hope to return again soon.”
