A Romantic Cottage and Artist's Retreat Looking Down Over an Enchanted Lake

Lakefront cottage in Greenwood Lake with patio
The Little House is a 650 square foot cottage ideal for a couple or as a solo artist's/writer's retreat. It is a lovingly decorated country cottage. There is one large bedroom, one bathroom, and a book-lined living room complete with a fold-out futon for an extra guest. The bedroom is shaded by trees and is perfect for cool late-afternoon naps. The room has a vanity table and a large closet. The living room has wicker chairs, a gas fireplace, and a dvd player. The seven-mile lake can be seen from all windows. And the sliding door leads directly from the living room out to a large deck - a true highlight of the little house, as the view is breathtaking in all seasons!
The kitchen offers all the basic amenities including a microwave, washing machine, and a separate walk-in pantry complete with storage shelves and a washer and dryer.
On the property, there is a garden, a large garden shed, and an outdoor seating area. The entire property is bordered by rocks, trees, and such perennial plants as mint, sage, and tiger-lilies. Parking is available in the front of the house, and there is space for two cars.
A small private beach ('B beach'), shared with other residents of our Indian Park neighborhood, is a 10 minute down-hill walk away, or a 2 minute drive in the car. You also have access to the larger public beach in the village (a five minute drive). Bus transportation to and from New York City is at the bottom of our neighborhood -- again, a ten-minute walk down hill. Express and local buses on the New Jersey Transit System.
Finally, the Little House backs up against the Appalachian Trail so wonderful hikes abound. You can find a trail head (if courageous) on the upper roads of Indian Park, or enjoy other hiking opportunities in nearby Sterling Forest and Harriman State Park. Along with hiking, wineries, crafts, festivals and fairs can be found in the nearby towns of Warwick, Sugar Loaf, and Monroe, NY. -- The Little House has it all; come for the quiet, the peace, and the beauty of the lake, mountains, and sky.
Rooms open to patios. Televisions come with DVD players. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.
The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

Very Nice Host/You Get What You Pay For I Guess
Julia is a very nice host, very communicative and caring. I have stayed in many vrbo's so I want to be honest in my review as I'm a person who always reads them before making a decision. I feel slightly guilty about this but if I had read this review while searching I would have been grateful and it would have saved me time and peace of mind, so ... I chose this place over one I had stayed in prior because it was cheaper and I wanted to save $. Since I wound up leaving a night early (not requesting a refund) I realized I could and should have just paid the extra $50 a night for a finely appointed, luxury cabin. It would have been worth it. Lesson learned. Again, Julia is very sweet, and I'm being honest but also slightly picky for those who care about this type of stuff. The little house is fine - very very basic. I was asked to arrive an hour later due to a guest leaving late and the cleaning that needed to be done. No problem. When I arrived though 15 mins later than requested, I still had to wait another 15 mins before I could get in and then the place was so filled with fumes, I had to open all the windows and wait outside for another hour before I could feel comfortable inhabiting. The fireplace didn't work, the dishwasher didn't work, there were various ants and other bugs, a wasp nest in the eaves on the deck was problematic, (but the time on the deck when not pestered by wasps was very nice) the mattress and couch were supremely uncomfortable and the first night there was a squirrel scratching inside the wall of the bedroom. Not the best environment for sleeping. So if you find none of that bothersome and you think I'm being too picky or overreacting, by all means book the place and enjoy!

5/5 Excellent

Little House on the Hill
Peaceful, relaxing, cozy and complete. Beautiful view of Greenwood Lake. Will be back.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful with a beautiful view!
I think the title sums it up. The house is inviting and comfortable, and the view is spectacular. I only wish the fireplace would have turned on a little more easily. Maybe a note with instructions left for the guests would be a nice touch. But regardless, it's certainly a worthwhile getaway if you're looking for relaxation! Would recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Quiet Cottage with a Stunning View
We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage! The view from the back porch is stunning in all weather. We found the kitchen pretty well equipped for everyday cooking and the cottage overall to be comfortable. Overall, I definitely think we got what we were promised and what we expected - a cozy, no-fuss stay somewhere with easy access to lots of parks (Sterling Forest and Ringwood State Parks were our favorite) and trails (right at the top of the neighborhood!). The cottage is homey, not fancy, and that was what we needed for a month. It was really nice to have the laundry in unit, but I would note the dishwasher was broken (not a problem for us and we were warned beforehand, just noting that because it is different than the listing and seems from reviews like it may have been broken for a while). It's a nice, low-key little spot for a cozy getaway for two. We really enjoyed reading by the fire and taking in the lake. I can only imagine the location is even more excellent in the summer. My only real negative (and it's not much) is that there are small changes the owners could make to make the place more functional for guests - blackout curtains on the bedroom windows, for example, would go a long way, as would having some basic cleaning supplies (i.e. windex and dishsoap) on hand, especially given the broken dishwasher. But these were all minor! We would stay again in the warm weather! Thanks to the owners for welcoming us.
