Escape Brooklyn this summer at a vibrant lake community an hour from NYC

We’ve just barely finished shoveling snow from the sidewalks, but with the arrival of spring, now’s the perfect time to plan your summer getaway. Luckily, your unforgettable lakeside summer retreat is a lot closer (and more affordable) than you might think.

Pine Lake Park in Northern Westchester is a vibrant community just under an hour outside of the New York metro area, making it a popular spot for families looking for a unique way to spend their summer. You can soak in the retro bungalow colony vibe at a guided tour April 2. It’s a short trip, and close to Croton Gorge, Peekskill and Bear Mountain — bring the kids!

The 50-acre wooded property boasts a plethora of shared amenities, including a lifeguarded lake, tennis and weekend entertainment. What makes it a truly special place is the communal atmosphere where young kids (and the young at heart) can kick back with other laid-back New Yorkers. Whether you’re looking to hike, swim or shoot hoops in the community’s popular pick-up basketball game, Pine Lake Park offers an extended summer of fun for the whole family for a fraction of the price of other summer getaways. Flexible one and two bedroom units with decks start at under $60,000, and rentals start at $2,500 per month.

Pine Lake Park officially opens May 15. If you can’t make the tour on April 2, you can scope out available properties by appointment with individual owners.
