Greenwood Lake Vacation Rentals
Orange County New York’s largest fresh water lake, and home to an array of extraordinary Hudson Valley attractions, Greenwood Lake is one of three villages in the town of Warwick, just 50 miles from New York City. The perfect spot for a weekend getaway or weeklong vacation in one of Greenwood Lake’s vacation rentals, visitors enjoy boating, swimming, fishing and water sports in summer, and skiing, sledding, ice-skating and ice-fishing in winter. In 2011, Greenwood Lake was the filming location for “Summer at Dog Dave’s,” a Rob Reiner film starring Morgan Freeman, Virginia Madsen and Kenan Thompson who, along with other cast members and crew, stayed in Greenwood Lake vacation rental homes during filming.
