Super Bowl 2014 is Coming to Our Area!

Temps may still be in the 70s and the fall football season just kicking into gear, but before you know it the big day will be here. And this year, Super Bowl 2014 is in our backyard! The New York/New Jersey area is abuzz in Bowl business. 

Usually the NFL ends its season in a warm, sunny locale, but 2014 is all about winter fun. Just think, a weekend full of football, coupled with skiing, skating and icy cool outings. 

Fans, we're ready! The Waterstone Inn in Greenwood Lake is only 40 miles from MetLife Stadium. See the city, go to the game, but stay at the Lake. It doesn't get better than that. And if you want to have a go at skiing, snowboarding or tubing, Mt. Peter and Tuxedo Ridge are just 5 minutes away.

Summer Wrap-Up

We had an amazing summer, which is partly the reason I've neglected the blog. The word is getting out about Greenwood Lake and we had the chance to share "Life at the Lake" with a lot of wonderful guests.  

We're still in high gear forging into the Fall season. The Warwick Valley is a prime destination this time of year for apple picking, wine tasting, foliage peeping and more!  

The famous Applefest is October 6, 2013. More than 35,000 guests are expected this year! Check out what that's all about here:

Life on the Lake

Im finally getting used to being on 'lake time' as the saying goes here in Greenwood Lake. Everything and everyone is so chilled out and I love it! This week i've been getting stuck into a project for the Waterstone Inn and I'm enjoying learning new things. So far this week I have had the chance to use the paddle boats and perfect my balancing skills! I also had a go on the kayak out on the lake which was fun. Along with the Mulcahy family, we all enjoyed a night down at Charlie's cove with the BBQ! This week has been so much fun and I am already excited to see what next week brings!

4th July

So I just celebrated my first ever 4th July and I got to go see the Macy's fireworks show in the city, it was the most accelerating thing I've ever seen and I will never forget it!  On Saturday I also got to see Greenwood Lake's own firework show which was also nothing short of amazing, all of the boats on the lake looked like little stars glittering in the night sky, it was beautiful. On Saturday morning I had the opportunity to take part in the town parade and march for Project Children with some of the other interns, it was a privilege and I loved seeing the whole community getting together and celebrating the 4th of July as well as each other! Here a picture of myself (left) and another intern watching the Macy's firework show!

Settling In

I started work this morning at the inn and during my time here I will be carrying out Marketing and Public Relations activities as well as helping out around the inn as much as  I can. I have met some lovely people so far who have all made me feel so welcome here at the Lake. I am super excited to get stuck into a project and do as much as I can to promote business here at the Waterstone Inn and in Greenwood Lake.  So far I have been on the Jet Ski and paddle boats on the lake; it’s been so much fun! I will be updating my experiences on the blog regularly so keep checking in to see what I’m up to!

Alabama Heat

Hello there!
My name is Niamh O’ Neill and I’m from Belfast, I am interning in Greenwood Lake this summer for six weeks at the Waterstone Inn with the Mulcahy family! Before I arrived here I spent one week in Tuscaloosa, Alabama with Habitat for Humanity and the other interns doing repairs on houses and rebuilding homes that were affected by the tornado. It was hard work in the heat and coming from Ireland I’m not used to this type of heat at all! But overall it was great fun and a very rewarding experience when handing over the house to its owner at the end of the week.  Below, you can see a picture of the whole crew down in Alabama! Now I'm back at the lake and ready to work, come say hello if you see me around the lake :)
