We’ve just barely finished shoveling snow from the sidewalks, but with the arrival of spring, now’s the perfect time to plan your summer getaway. Luckily, your unforgettable lakeside summer retreat is a lot closer (and more affordable) than you might think.
Pine Lake Park in Northern Westchester is a vibrant community just under an hour outside of Queens, making it a popular spot for families looking for a unique way to spend their summer. You can come experience the retro bungalow colony vibe at a “by appointment only” tour April 2. It’s a short trip and close to Croton Gorge, Peekskill and Bear Mountain — bring the kids!
The 50-acre wooded property boasts a plethora of shared amenities, including a lifeguarded lake, tennis and weekend entertainment. What makes it a truly special place is the communal atmosphere where young kids (and the young at heart) can kick back with other laid-back New Yorkers. Whether you’re looking to hike, swim or shoot hoops in the community’s popular pick-up basketball game, Pine Lake Park offers an extended summer of fun for the whole family for a fraction of the price of other vacations. Flexible one and two bedroom units with decks start at under $60,000, and rentals start at $2,500 per month.
Pine Lake Park officially opens May 15. If you can’t make the April 2 tour, you can scope out available properties by appointment with individual owners.
