The space

Our lakeside home sits on a hillside overlooking beautiful Tennanah Lake (largest private lake in the Catskills). We love the quiet serenity of being out in the country, while still only 10 minutes from Roscoe stores and restaurants. We enjoy the house in all 4 seasons, but our favorite season is the summer. Nights are usually cool, with ceiling fans and open windows keeping it quite comfortable. We think you'll love falling asleep with the sounds of water lapping at the dock and waking up to great sunrises. Our spring-fed lake is clear and refreshing - perfect for a summer day swim. Look for the eagles that nest across the lake.

Great fishing - Tennanah lake is stocked with bass, trout and perch. We are also minutes from world class trout fishing streams and several outfitters in Roscoe.

Our home is on a hillside, so the great views come with somewhat steep path down to the water. We have a floating dock and the water gets deep quickly. May not be suitable for families with very young children or those with physical limitations.

Guest access

Swimming, fishing, hiking and relaxing on our decks. Golf and tennis are 10 minutes away at the Tennanah Golf Club

Interaction with guests

Everything you need for a great stay is in the house. Please call us immediately if anything isn't working or if something breaks.

Carol's place was wonderful. We were a group of 10 and had plenty of space to cook and eat together. It was rainy/muggy for the first 2 days we were there so Carol let us stay a few hours extra to enjoy the sun/lake on Sunday. She was super responsive and the house had an amazing view. Lots of pots and pans, paper goods, sheets and towels. Bring your own soap/shampoo though. Would stay again!

My family was looking for a quiet, out of the way place to spend Thanksgiving. Carol's home was perfect. The view is beautiful. We weren't looking to get out much so we didn't explore what was in the area. Carol is a great communicator. She answered all questions quickly. Check in was easy. It was an overall pleasant experience.

The entire stay was lovely and seamless. Carol made it very easy to check in and out, and was available for questions should we have them. The house was absolutely perfect with the most incredible view of the lake and direct access. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay.

The lake house is great and the two decks have an amazing view. The four bedroom are nice and easy to accommodate a group. If you want spend nice time outside this is the right house.

Carol (& John) made our trip a great experience! She was very helpful and responsive to all questions and inquiries. The listing and pictures were accurate and the house was well stocked and the view to the lake was picturesque. The neighborhood is very quiet and was a perfect get away. The price is unbeatable and you get what you pay for (i.e., the house is not the most new/fanciest place, but is very well kept and sufficient to comfortably lodge 7-9 adults. Would recommend to anyway looking to get away from the hustle and bustle!

Thank you for a wonderful weekend! The lake was beautiful and the house was perfect. Carol is a wonderful host who explained everything clearly and promptly answered all questions. I imagine this is a great summer destination, but it is also such a great winter spot for a relaxing weekend.

I grew up on a lake in the Midwest. I loved all the seasons on the lake. We wanted to recreate this experience for our family and have found it in the Catskills. We were seeking a lakeside home within 2 hours of northern NJ. When we first walked out onto the back deck we knew we had found our idyllic lake home.
