The French-Lauretano family has been a part of Bantam Lake and Morris for decades and truly love the area. This rental is a family operation and the owners are close by for any questions, concerns, or needs. They have an extensive knowledge of the area and all it has to offer, including dining recommendations, activities for children and/or adults, and surrounding towns.
This home was built by the owners in a small community of 6 homes, including theirs, so that they can be close by for any needs, but offer the guests privacy while renting. The house is conveniently located close to the lake, shopping, and restaurants. It offers an easy commute to several surrounding towns that offer so much history, art, entertainment, and fun for all ages. Just 90 minutes from NYC!
