Located in a quiet, residential neighborhood about 7 miles north of I-80, our little lakefront property is quiet and feels secluded. Our guests are welcome to borrow guest badges that will allow use of all lake facilities including two nice swimming beaches, two playgrounds for little ones, fishing (NJ license required), boating, and sunset views. There is plenty of shopping with all major stores nearby. There is a county park nearby with excellent hiking trails just a few miles up the road. Suggested Local Attractions:The Sterling Mine Museum is famous for its luminescent rocks and crystals and well worth a visit.

Empty nesters enjoying RVing and lake life Details: We are a semi-retired couple who split our time between our beautiful little lake house in northern New Jersey and traveling the country in our 37-foot 2004 Fleetwood Southwind. We love meeting people, discovering the local good-eats and off-the-beaten-path gems, and sharing the beauty of our quiet lake community. Favorite things include our three young-adult children, our three dogs, our lake, good BBQ, and traveling the country. Check out our videos at www.youtube.com/c/Milesandsmiles4u Home Town: We live on Lake Shawnee in Jefferson Township, New Jersey. It's a beautiful little lake with no gasoline engines allowed - just wind, paddles, and electric. Good fishing (bass, sunnies, perch, crappies, and some pike and pickerel, too), plus two nice swimming beaches. Guests are welcome to enjoy our small yard and dock - to swim, fish, relax, kayak, and enjoy the view. Skills or Expertise to Share: YouTube channel, photography, bird-watching

    Beautiful location in a quiet lakeside neighborhood. Hosts were very friendly and accommodating. Best for smaller class b vans but as my 23' shuttle has a long rear overhang we were able to make it work
