There is a separate entrance and you will have on site parking and lake access via our private, lakefront docks (located across the street from the house and approximately 200 feet away) for your stay.
There are 2 bedrooms with windows, closets and hangers (one bedroom faces the back and one faces the lake), a large living room with a very comfortable, sofa sectional, laptop workspace and Apple TV.
The full-sized, windowed bath has a tub and separate sink area. Essentials including bath and beach towels, soap, shampoo, hair dryer, iron and first aid kit can be found in the linen closet.
The eat-in-kitchen has an AC, microwave, refrigerator, electric stove, coffee maker, toaster oven, pots, pans, china, silverware, mugs, glasses and a country table for 4. Guest AccessTravelers will have access to the Guest House apartment (1 bedroom for parties of 1-2, 2 bedrooms for parties of 4-6), the driveway for parking and access to our private docks located across the street from the house and 200 feet down the road. Here, you are welcome to use the docks, picnic tables, sandbox, bbq and fire pit. Interaction with GuestsThe Guest House and the Main House are attached and share a lot, so there will always be someone close and available during your stay. That being said, we are sure to give our guests plenty of privacy and if you prefer, we can assist via phone, email or text for anything you may need. All guests must be checked in by host. The NeighborhoodThe Village of Greenwood Lake offers year-round activities, including water sports, hiking, skiing, terrific restaurants in the village and shopping and wineries in nearby Warwick Township. Getting AroundYou can get to Greenwood Lake by car, bus, railroad or via NJ Transit. There are car service companies to get you around the village. Other Things to NoteCOOKING
There is no gas in Greenwood Lake. You can grill, cook on an electric stove or microwave. I am not a big cook, and kitchen "stuff" may be limited, so let me know what you need and I'll accommodate you as best I can.
I choose not to drink the water because it's hard and not to my taste. You may want to bring bottled water for your stay.
We are on a septic system, so the ONLY thing that can be flushed is the obvious and toilet paper found in the house. No outside tissue or toilet paper, sanitary products, baby wipes, condoms, or anything else can be flushed...just toss it all in the garbage.
The roads were scary to me at first and there is a strict 25 mph speed limit on the roads in Greenwood Lake...15 mph at night (no lights). No drinking and driving please! That goes for driving on the lake as well (there are Lake Police and USCG)...always have a life jacket (available in the house) on your kayak, boat, paddle board.
LIFE ON A LAKE
There are lots of creatures big and small near the lake. I'm a city girl, so I find the gnats most annoying...they are attracted to light and they can even enter screens. Bring lots of bug spray and keep the windows closed at night. I also eat by Citronella candlelight if I am eating outdoors in the evening. There are also deer and bears, so all garbage must be contained properly (no food should be left outside). Lake Life is still TOTALLY worth it.
