Beautiful lakeside cottage retreat. The cottage sits on a private lake in northwest New Jersey about 1-1.5 hours from NYC. The interior is all knotty pine wood and full of light with warm wood flooring. Also has a small deck that overlooks the yard.
The kitchenette has a tiny stove and sink for light cooking prep. Enjoy your dinner on our Redwood slab bar and stools. Small bathroom with shower. The bed is overlooked by skylights and is peaceful and private, with a new mattress to ensure you have a truly restorative rest while you're here.
Enjoy every inch of this 150 foot lakefront property! Hide away in the romantic, picturesque cottage. Play badminton or volleyball in the grass. Have a dance party on the deck. Take a snooze in the hammock. Read that best-seller in our furnished gazebo. Get a tan on the dock and take a swim to cool off. Fish for large mouth bass, rock bass, pickerel, hybrid stripers, and catfish. Explore the wildlife of Bear Swamp by kayak and see how many different species of songbird you can spy! If you're lucky, you might see the resident beaver, or find a cache of the most delicious blueberries in New Jersey.
The Flat Brook, New Jersey's most scenic trout stream, is 8 minutes away. Fishing license required. Bring your own tackle.

We have an indoor/outdoor Norwegian Forest cat (gray, long-haired) that rambles around the property, if this is a potential issues due to allergies, etc. please let us know. If this isn't a problem just ignore him and he will be fine. There is also a pet chicken on the property, named John Wayne. She is geriatric, anxious, and one-legged. John Wayne does not enjoy attention from strangers, though she does range-freely through the property. A neighbor will stop by to take care of her in the morning and evening. Please don't chase or try to handle John Wayne
