Five-Figure Friday: Swan Lake Cottage, $45,000

18 heinle road swan lake ny

It’s quaint, cute, and on a lake, to boot. Actually, it’s not a bad size for $45,000: 1,100 square feet and 3 beds/2 baths. It’s part of a 57-acre lake community that includes a pool as well as the lake. Love the view from the deck. Swan Lake is located in Sullivan County, and Swan Lake itself is just a bit east of this house on Briscoe Road. Can you tell we vacation on the brain lately?

Sullivan County’s Largest Corn Maze

You heard us right. It’s open on weekends through November 4, from 11AM to 5PM. They also have hay rides, a corn cannon, a pumpkin sling, a hay bale maze and a fall market, at the Cunningham Family Farm, 233 Hurd Parks Rd, Swan Lake. 845-798-7055.

Don’t worry, we’re wondering the same thing: why don’t you put some pictures of this large corn maze on your site?

Swan Lake Contemporary, $219,000

Here’s the first line of the listing for this Swan Lake contemporary with three beds and three baths: “OWNER SAYS SELL AND WILL ACCEPT ANY REASONABLE OFFER.” Always a nice place to start. I’m feeling a little less gung-ho about Swan Lake since a few have written in to say that the lake itself is not so delicious — more a body of water to look at than to swim in. But if that doesn’t stop you, this is a nice size and a nice price, with a motivated seller. Last purchased in 2002 for $175,000 by a Manhattanite. It’s also for rent, for $1750 a month.  If you can get that, you could cover your mortgage several times a year. Stats on the jump.

Swan Lake Villa Rental with Pool

I got wind of this four-bedroom chalet-ish rental on Swan Lake through the local parents listserv in my neighborhood, and it caught my eye. Hilltop pool! 360-degree views! Mod furnishings that look more Heywood Wakefield than IKEA! It says its on 10 secluded acres, which I did not realize was a possibility on Swan Lake. Hm.

Perhaps most interesting is the rental price. Starts at $350 per night and $2500 per week. A similar property, with five beds and three baths, in need of a designer’s touch, is $165,000. Let’s say you spend $100,000 renovating and adding a pool (is that too modest an estimate, if the property only needs cosmetic changes?) — I still think you could make most of your mortgage and expenses back if you rented it out for one week a month. The house above is a world more appealing than other Swan Lake rentals I’ve looked at, so that’s a lesson, too: if you want to make a little income off your country house, beautify it right.
