Five-Figure Friday: Wanaksink Lake Cottage, $90,000

17 first road rock hill ny

A five-figure lake house is a bit like a unicorn around these parts, but there’s usually one or two around Sullivan County. This one fits the bill nicely. It’s over 1,000 square feet located across the street from Wanaksink Lake in Rock Hill, it’s on a half-acre of land, could be a two-bedroom, the interior looks spacious with no glaring repair work, and the property includes a storage building. Living here gives you access to the lake clubhouse, pool, tennis courts, and the lake itself, of course.

Rock Hill Lake Cottage, $124,000

67 gold point road rock hill ny

Doesn’t this bungalow make you want to load the kids into your wood-sided station wagon and head up to the lake for the entire summer? We like the simple, old-school feel of it and the cozy interior complete with living room fireplace. While it’s not directly on the shores of Wanaksink Lake in Sullivan County, it’s just a few steps away. You’ll also have access to the private clubhouse. The screened-in porch looks like it could accommodate summertime sleeping. Throw in the back deck for outdoor dining/entertaining and you’ve got yourself a decent, inexpensive little lake house here.

Rock Hill Lake Front Mid-Mod Cheapie, $129,900

59 straight path rock hill ny

For a Lake Louise Marie property in decent condition (in other words, not terribly outdated) in Rock Hill, this is an excellent deal. Just a hair over 1,000 square feet means it’s not huge, but it’s a lake house for less than $130,000. We’re not miracle workers. We like the fireplace and the wood floors. Lot size is teensy, but the lake is just a few steps away, not to mention the club pool right down the road.

This is as close to five-figures as we’re going to get in Rock Hill, but stay tuned later today for the official return of Five-Figure Fridays, starting off in Wurtsboro, right down the road from Rock Hill…

Upstater Destinations: Holiday Mountain Fun Park

holiday mountain 2

Holiday Mountain, located just outside of Rock Hill in Sullivan County, combines two things we love: Parks, and fun. But seriously, Holiday Mountain may be a small slope, but given that lift passes are $20 cheaper than they are at Belleayre Mountain for a mid-week trip down the hill, we’ll take it.

Additionally, Holiday Mountain offers all the usual winter-related stuff: Ski lessons for both individuals and groups, tubing, snowboarding lessons, and skiing and snowboarding clubs. College students get $5 off lift tickets, and seniors over the age of 62 as well as military personnel ski for free.

Winter activities not really your bag? Wait until it gets warm and hit the Holiday Mountain mini-golf course. Or race some go-karts, get wet on the Bumper Boats, scale the rock climbing wall, or drive recklessly at full speed towards your friends and family on the Bumper cars. In addition to lots of summer activities, they also host children’s birthday parties and paintball games.

According to their website, Holiday Mountain will soon be home to something called “Spray and Play”. Sounds like you might need a poncho. Stay tuned…
