Life at Beaver Lake
First a bit about us....
Beaver Lake Estates is a summer recreational community located within a two hour drive of New York City, near the city of Monticello, in the heart of the Catskill Mountains (getting here).  Our 80 plus member families enjoy over 400 acres of wooded grounds including our 60 acre namesake lake. Our families reside in detached all weather homes clustered around our facilities with access to their home year round.  In addition, Beaver Lake accommodates seasonal renters by offering "bungalow" style residences.  We are also the summer home of our day camp counselors and waterfront staff. We welcome the steady and continuous flow of friends, family and guests who enjoy their stay for hours or days.  
The Beaver Lake Estates elected officers, board members, volunteers, Executive Director and staff work tirelessly on behalf of the residents. While each individual member has responsibilities for maintaining their own home, everything else is the association's responsibility, including:
  • Maintenance and management of the lake, pools, trails, roads, recreational amenities, trash pickup, and landscaping
  • Administration of Shul, day camp, entertainment, community budget and financial accounts
  • Liaison with town and county
  •  Provides help and support to members and seasonal renters
We have a Vision:
To be the premier summer resort and recreation community choice for Modern Orthodox Jewish families
Our Mission:
We are committed to provide enjoyable recreation, a safe environment, and unforgettable experiences for every member, seasonal renter, child, adult and guest
We will accomplish this through excellence in service, innovation, and anticipation of ever changing needs and expectations. The ability to fulfill our vision is reflected in the satisfaction of our members, the quality of our facilities, continued growth, financial stability and shareholders' value  
We are committed:
TO PROTECT the quality of our environment and in particular our spectacular lake
TO BEAUTIFY our grounds and facilities through proactive management
TO PROVIDE exceptional social and recreation activities to all our members, renters, and guests
TO KEEP our membership informed
