About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to the quiet confines of Sincere D'Amore nestled in the heart of the Taconic Mountain Range in Columbia County, NY, bordering Massachusetts' Berkshire County.

You wake up an hour past dawn, grab a cup of java and sit out on your private deck that overlooks shimmering Copake Lake, a 365 acre multiuse lake. Maybe you're contemplating your 10:00 a.m. tee-off at the Copake Lake Country Club or landing that 'Lunker' largemouth bass that got away. You could be planning the route of your 10 mile bike trek through the rolling farmland down to Bash-Bish Falls State Park or making a list of antique shops to hit in search of that perfect dresser for your bedroom.

About 2 hours from New York City and 2.5 hours from Boston, the house is situated on ½ acre of land with 12 feet of sliding glass doors and skylights that overlook the lake and brings the foliage right into you’re living room. There are antique grade pine floors throughout the house which is fully equipped with linens, towels, outdoor grill and all the kitchen accoutrements to create that culinary masterpiece.

We have also provided all the conveniences of home such as air conditioning, a central heating system, cable TV, DVD, and wireless internet for your laptop. For the final touch there's even glass door wood stove for keeping warm on those romantic evenings. The house sleeps up to 6 in the 3 antique furnished bedrooms. There's 1 and 1/2 baths.

Sincere D'Amore is a wonderful place to spend a fun-filled week with the kids or a romantic weekend for two.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore (Sincere D'Amore) !

Dear Blaise,

We would like to thank you for everything. The house was so cozy and warm with the wood burning stove (our favorite). It's in a beautiful location surrounded with birch trees (brian's favorite) and capped with starry nights. The best winter spot we've ever stayed in! The location was perfect for a getaway from NYC. Copake lake was frozen and we saw many people on snow mobiles and ice fishing. Can't wait to see it in the Spring time on the golf course, so we will be in touch!!! Sorry we forgot to leave tips for the cleaning crew, we didn't realize till we got home. How may we reach them so that we can send them a tip?

We will write a review on the website so that many people may enjoy the true gifts and pleasures sincere d'amore has to offer. Once again, thank you!

Great house and beautiful view

  • 4 of 5

Sincere D'amore was a lovely house, very cosy and comfortable. the view of the lake was great. We enjoyed our stay overall and Blaise was very helpful. The only two things we didn't liked was that none of the door locks were working, not even at the restroom, and that there was a bad odour from the water in all sinks.

Owner's Response: I’m so glad that you enjoyed your stay. I replaced the lock on the bathroom door and the plumber has fixed the water problem. The front door does lock If the directions are followed.

Cozy cabin on the lake

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was as advertised right across from the lake. Although it was snowing when we arrived the views of the lake were great. The house was well stocked for sleeping and cooking. Great value for the price, would stay again.

Cozy house on the lake

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect for a weekend away with friends. There was plenty of space for 5 of us and a puppy. We also enjoyed the open layout of the dining room/kitchen/living room so that we could all hang out while cooking, eating, etc.

The good: beautiful setting, nice views, all amenities.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your response.. just to clarify, it was the soffits that needed repair and they have been fixed. I have installed a new vanity, light and mirror in the main bathroom. As for the kitchen cabinets, my cleaning company doesn't always catch such difficult to asses situations, I encourage all my guests to email me during their stay if conditions need attention and I can have them corrected.
