Review #15960703 “A Sweet Retreat at Whaley Lake”
A beautiful peaceful lake home with all the amenities!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Our family just completed a week long rental of both the upstairs and downstairs units. The lake is just beautiful, the visiting ducks and chipmunks were delightful and the sense of peace and calm was just what the doctor ordered. While he went out rowing and fishing (he says that this the best fresh water spot he's ever fished -- even caught a chain pickerel!), we bbq'ed on a great new grill; I sat and read and enjoyed the scenery and forgot about everything. The units are spotless and well maintained; having a washer and dryer is a boon - and I'll bet the upstairs fireplace makes for a cozy autumn night! Great for a family or for a couple too. Robert, the owner, could not have been more accommodating and responsive and there's a feeling that he'll be Johnny on the spot if anything needs tending to. Folks who had stayed previously always managed to leave behind spices, coffee filters, dish washing liquid, storage containers so it almost felt like you knew them and wanted to pay it forward. It was probably the best getaway that we've ever had -- and a little over an hour away from home. Pack your bags, hit the supermarket and unwind at Whaley Lake which the owner lovingly has renamed Lake Bliss! We intend to be Lake Bliss recidivists!
Great little getaway for the weekend. Really enjoyed the lake, the barbecue, and the canoes. There isn't much else to do, so a long vacation may not be the best idea. I think an extended weekend stay is perfect. The price is fair as well.
We spent 4 days on this property and we enjoyed every moment of it. We were four adults and we love fishing and swimming. We booked this property mainly for these things and we did not regret it. Fishing was amazing. We caught a lot of Large Mouth Bass and had a feast with it. The weather was perfect for swimming and it was very enjoyable to swim in the lake. Everything for swimming was provided by the owner and we spent hours swimming in the lake. At night we had barbecue by the lake in a very quite environment.
I would recommend this house for a larger group of people (6-10 people). It would make it more affordable. The owner of the house was very pleasant to talk to, always available on the phone and tried to accommodate our needs.

We stayed at Lake Bliss with friends in May, close proximity to hiking, relaxing breakfasts by the lake, nice to have a canoe available, everything we needed was there. Made for a nice weekend. Owner was responsive and easy to work with, we appreciated the opportunity to get away with minimal hassles.
We had a beautiful weekend with the family. We rented the upstairs unit and it slept the 5 of us comfortably. The lake is so peaceful and time just seemed to slow down. It was exactly what we needed. It was also only about an hour and a half drive from NYC so it was very easy to get to. Kayaking was fun and fishing was great (and delicious). Parking is tight, so carpool. Wonderful weekend!
