Only 2 hours from NYC, enjoy a break in nature‚ÄĒor work from home‚ÄĒat the newly renovated @mountainlakebungalow with d√©cor inspired by our native Sweden. Walk over to the lake, waterfall, hiking trails or seasonal beach, take the canoe for a paddle or visit Bethel Woods Center for the Arts, the original Woodstock site, an alpaca farm, waterpark, Legoland or cute towns with great shopping and dining options. At night, gather around the firepit or cozy up by the fireplace with a good book or movie.

The space

This is the most adorable 2 BR/1 BA bungalow from the 40s, updated with a brand new kitchen and bathroom offering vintage charm with modern conveniences. The front door leads into a spacious mudroom which opens up to the combined living/dining room with a dining table, sofa and lounge chairs centered around the gas fireplace (no need to run out for firewood!). The adjoining fully stocked kitchen features an island with plenty of space to prepare meals. Both bedrooms have laptop-friendly workspaces and fast, reliable internet (200 Mbps), providing a comfortable work-from-home setup. The deck, overlooking the beautiful woodland garden, can be accessed from the kitchen as well as the downstairs bedroom. Right off the deck is a firepit with four comfy Adirondack chairs. The house is as cozy as it is functional. See more at @mountainlakebungalow/IG

***Please note that the upstairs bedroom (with a king bed), as well as the shower booth have low ceilings and people over 6 foot tall may find these spaces uncomfortable. ***

The newly remodeled kitchen features a gas stove and compact dishwasher. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to make a meal including a Moccamaster coffee maker, French press, microwave, toaster, and Nutri Ninja blender. We offer our guests coffee, tea and basic spices. The dining table comfortably seats 6 people.

Our sofa is super comfy - perfect for cozy movie nights. The smart TV is logged in to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime Video but you can of course log in to your own streaming service as well. If you want to play content from another device we have HDMI cables.

The bedrooms feature a king (primary) and queen bed respectively, both with Allswell 's highly rated hybrid mattress (memory foam and innerspring coils), as well as laptop-friendly workspaces.

The roomy bathroom features a brand new shower, and the window faces the backyard. It has been remodeled for a thoroughly modern aesthetic.

The deck faces the backyard and a pretty wooded area. It features a gas BBQ, sofa, two lounge chairs, and a dining table. This is the perfect spot to enjoy your meals, sip your coffee or cocktail, read a book, relax, or watch the many birds and deer that frequent the area. We have string lights in the trees to enhance the atmosphere even more on those warm summer nights.

Just off the deck, we have a fire pit with four comfy Adirondack chairs.

We have a compact stackable washer and dryer in the kitchen.

The cottage is work-from-home friendly with fast Wi-Fi (200 Mbps), desks in both bedrooms (one can be adjusted if you prefer to stand), and a printer.

Wi-Fi is fast (200 Mbps) and reliable, and cell service is great - Verizon and AT&T have excellent coverage. We do not know if other networks/operators have the same great service, but if not, we suggest activating wi-fi calling on your phone.

The water is safe to drink and tastes great. We have a UV water filter which removes all viruses, bacteria and other microbes from water.

Please note that we have neighbors and their houses are visible from the bungalow.

The stay includes complimentary use of a canoe (which sits right by the lake), two inflatable stand-up paddleboards, as well as inner tubes for four people.

During the summer, we have ACs installed in the two bedrooms, but not in the kitchen and living/dining room. These rooms, however, stay fairly cool, and windows and doors can be opened (with screens) for natural cross ventilation. We also provide fans.
