Why Elaine and Jason Woodlee chose Hancock

We were renting a small cottage in the area while visiting our daughter in French Woods. We came upon this house while taking a walk. The rest is history :-)

What makes this house unique

Modern and spacious house in a quiet community right on a beautiful lake. The house has all the comforts of home as it is built for year around living. It truly takes you "away from it all". We found no better place to run away to and recharge.

Great Lake and Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

My wife children and I had an amazing time at the lake house. The house was spotless and has every amenity that you could ever need when renting a house. The owners were very accommodating and were willing to do anything to make our stay pleasant and enjoyable. The dock was by far the best dock on the entire lake, with wonderful views and multiple levels for cooking/eating and docking the canoes and paddle boats.

There were also many extra's that you never find when renting a waterfront property such as multiple canoes and small rafts that you can use free of charge while you are there, as well as life preservers, and multiple flotation devices such as noodles and blow up rafts/inner-tubes.

I would highly recommend this place for anyone wanting to get away and simply relax on the lake. The community was very quiet and everyone kept to themselves allowing my family to simply enjoy the water and do nothing but relax. There are also two towns within 5-10 minutes driving distance that has everything you could possibly need, restaurants/grocery store and liquor store as well as a pizza delivery place that will come right to your doorstep.

We will definitely be renting from Elaine again. Thank you for a wonderful vacation.

Perfect lakefront location

  • 5 of 5

I have to begin by stating that Elaine was very responsive and accommodating throughout the booking process and our actual stay. Her home is inviting with plenty of natural light and lake views from just about every window of the house. The expansive deck/dock is built directly from the home to the water. There is plenty of comfortable, well-maintained outdoor furniture, a large gas grill, and a gas fire pit. My 3 daughters ages 7, 12, and 13 found the kids kayaks were a fabulous plus!! My husband and I were able to join them on the lake in the canoe and the adult kayak each day. Life jackets and paddles are clean and stored neatly in the shed. There are other homes on the lake, only about half of which were occupied during our stay. I should note that the people we came in brief contact with were friendly, waving and exchanging pleasantries. That being said, the location still feels quiet and secluded. We brought our floats from home (although there were plenty inflated in the shed) and spent lots of time swimming and relaxing in the water. We also had our fishing rods with us, and caught an array of decent sized sunfish, a few bass and the occasional small trout. The kitchen is well stocked and the bathrooms clean. Bed linens and bath towels are provided as well. Groceries are just 15 minutes away in Hancock Village. I cannot wait to book Elaine and Jason's home again for a longer stay next summer!!

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great family vacation at the house: 3 kids aged 6 and 5 and 4 adults. The house was clean, kitchen stocked with plates/cookware and clean linens. We spent all day by the lake and lit a fire every night to make smores. Small lake community, isolated in the Catskills. Peaceful, beautiful lake. Rental process was easy and straightforward.

Best 4th of July ever!

  • 5 of 5

Great family vacation

We had such an amazing time at the house.

The property was really easy to find and the view was amazing.

The house was really clean and it has everything you need, its home away from home.

The best part of the vacation was waking up in the morning and having breakfest right on the deck overlooking the beautiful lake, and enjoying the quietness of the mountains. The house has a great fire pit which we spent most of our nitghs making smores and enjoying each other's companies. My 3 year old had a great time playing on the deck and fishing.

Thanks to Elaine and Jason for making everything so easy throughout the whole rental process.

We will definitely be back.
