Notes from the website: One fate-filled autumn weekend in 1947, my young newlywed grandparents wandered far north from their immigrant roots of Hoboken, NJ to a tiny lake community in northern NJ on the border of Warwick, NY. Upon immediately falling deep in love with the quaint bungalow town, Grandpa jokingly offered a builder a hundred dollar bill as a down payment on the purchase of his almost-finished tiny project. As part of the agreement, though, the builder would have to allow the young couple to spend the night in his humble dwelling in return for a hand-shake of a Contract of Sale. 70 years after that cold and uncomfortable, breezy October night (no windows had been installed at this point) "The Bungalow" remains the cornerstone of our families history through 4 generations! As friends and family would travel to visit and drink in the beauty of the mountaintop, my Grandpa would always welcome them with a proud and hearty "Welcome to our Bungalow"! The memories and experiences of a lifetime blend into one beautiful tale of love and laughter, with hearts so grateful for the spontaneity of that young couple. The red log Bungalow remained as built for over 50 years, serving as my first home when my Grandpa deeded it to my mom on her wedding day over 30 years ago. My childhood "Home on the Mountain" will forever be dear to my heart and its memory so cherished by our family. It is with great pride and honor that I share the joyful opening of my own "Bungalow" under the watchful and loving eye of my Nana as she turns 90 this year! Welcome, everyone, to our Bungalow!
