Greenwood Lake is a town that just seems to be so lucky to be where it is. First of all, there’s the setting on the northern fork of Greenwood Lake, a splendid and picturesque body of water. Part of this lake also forms a bit of the New Jersey border, and New York City is only 50 miles away.
Greenwood Lake is in Orange county (no, not that Orange County - wrong coast entirely), and the residents of this town are proud of it. In addition to the lake and lake activities, there’s also a fair amount of hiking in the area. The best-known venue is the local section Appalachian Trail. The trail itself runs from Georgia to Maine; we think this area is a good introduction, however, and a major plus for vacation rental seekers who enjoy the outdoors!
Civic pride and civic activity appear to be strong in the community of Greenwood Lake. There’s any number of community events, including rowing competitions, a band, a parade, and a street fair. With its great location and all the available activities, from swimming to skiing, renting a vacation home in Greenwood Lake is an appealing option for groups and families. Summer or winter, Greenwood Lake offers the visitor a unique opportunity to enjoy a beautiful setting.
