Overview

About the property

OPEN ALL WINTER A walk down a blue stone pathways leads to our charming cottage overlooking a beautiful spring fed lake. The cottage is surrounded by 50 year-old pine trees, perennials, and native trees .it is situated on our four-acre property with your own private 160 feet of lake front with canoe and 2 kayaks. Very private, quiet, serene, and just steps to lake front. Relax in the outdoor hot tub overlooking the lake.The cottage has an open kitchen, dining and sitting area with large pine beams, vaulted ceilings and a beautiful view of the lake or woods. The kitchen is fully equipped. The dining areas, both inside and out seat four to six people. The sitting area is very inviting, featuring a Vermont casting gas stove and a large, cozy window seat overlooking the lake and woods. The bathroom has a claw foot tub with shower, with all the amenities: hair dryer, ironing board, washer and dryer, plenty of bath and lake towels.

The bedroom on the main level has a full-size antique bed and sliding glass doors that lead out to the covered screened in porch overlooking the lake. The lake cottage also has a private patio with a hot tub, gas BBQ, and fire pit as well as your own private garden. Steps down from the cottage is a 60-foot cedar deck, a 12-foot by 12-foot pergola, and floating dock. There are lounge chairs, a table and chairs, a porch swing, and a hammock -- all private and overlooking the lake. Take a dip in the spring-fed lake which is clean and refreshing. Enjoy a paddle in the canoe or 2 kayaks. You may see painted turtles basking in the sun on fallen logs. Canadian geese and swans may swim by. If you wake up early, don't be surprised if you see wild turkeys, deer, fox, or red tailed hawks. They're all very common in our area.

The charming villages of Rhinebeck, Tivoli and Red Hook offer many choices for restaurants and nightly entertainment -- and are only about 15 minutes from our cottage. The Fisher Center on the grounds of Bard College is also only a 15 minute drive. There are historical estates such as Montgomery Place, Clermont and Olana. There is also Innisfree Garden in nearby Millbrook. Cities such as Great Barrington, Woodstock, Millerton, Millbrook and Hudson are a bit further but worth the drive.

About Bruce or Deanna Gardom

Our family moved to the New York Hudson Valley area in 2000 from the west coast. Deanna has been a flight attendant for 26 years and enjoys both flying and being home . Our daughter Olivia is in high schooland has enjoyed the country life and Red Hook's wonderful school system. Bruce worked in hotel management on the west coast for 20 years and decided a different lifestyle was needed. We had only planned on staying here for a couple of years but fell in love with the area and community and decided to stay. We built a vacation rental on our lake property to give Bruce a project and combining Bruce's knowledge of the hotel business and Deanna's bed and breakfast background from Napa Valley , California, the lake cottage has evolved into a wonderful full time business. We are grateful to our many repeat guests and our new guests for making it such a success.

Bruce or Deanna Gardom purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Bruce or Deanna Gardom chose Red Hook

The location of our lake cottage is ideal for a getaway from the stress and fast pace of the city. The privacy and tranquility of the lake and cottage is so inviting and peaceful. We see wild life almost daily, such as deer, turkey or geese ,fox, rabbits , hawks, heron, swans and an occasional eagle. The wild life is abundant in the area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

FROM OUR GUEST BOOK...We needed a retreat, a place to unwind and relax. We found that, and more, at this peaceful cottage. We read, wrote, talked and watched the wildlife. Squirrels, chipmunks,birds, and deer fritted and scampered through the clearing. Alpha Squirrel was fun to watch-perched high on the birdfeeder, chattering gutteral challenges to those who would steal "his" hoard. The weather was nice. Some rain occassionally splattered the leaves, but at some point each day the sun sent shimmering grins across the lake. We hope all who stay here enjoy the traquility and fresh air as much as we did. This is trily a lovely cottage and we hope to find our way again.Thank you, Bruce and Deanna, for your hospitality and for sharing your cottage ( and the peace it brought)...

Fantastic Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I can only echo what all of the other reviews have said. This is a wonderful cottage away from it all. It is kept in meticulous condition and you want for nothing. I debated writing a review as to keep this place a secret but decided it was o.k to share it! We spent time in there over Christmas so when we entered the house to the warm fireplace going, and the adorable Christmas tree we knew it was going to be magical. And it was. Can't wait to visit again. Thanks Bruce and Deanna!

Perfect little cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

Spent the weekend at this lovely cottage and it had everything you can possibly need! Bruce and Deanna did a great job of having everything labeled, ice, coolers, all the necessities for cooking, places to visit around the area and even left a bottle of wine when we arrived with the heat going & music playing to welcome our arrival. Unfortunately the weather was much colder than we anticipated so we missed out on using the lake and the extra amentities but we will definitely be returning again! Perfect spot to unwind and get away for a long weekend. My favorite spot in the cottage was the little “nook” by the window to unwind, watch tv and cuddle up with my other half !

Wonderful lakeside cabin

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here several times and its always been lovely. The cabin is cozy, warm and inviting and the lakeside sunsets are truly beautiful. Bruce and Deanna are very nice and pleasant to book with. I’ve never had any problems with anything here- they keep things in tip top shape and running smoothly so you don’t have to worry about anything during your stay. Highly recommended!

Relaxing get-away!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to escape for a long week end. Bruce and Deanna have thought of everything you could possibly need for a relaxing vacation. From the bottle of wine that welcomed us to the farm fresh eggs they provided, we never needed anything that was not already there.

Thank you for everything and we are already planning our return.

Turtle Creek is a simple cottage

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late at night in the middle of a downpour we walked up onto the enclosed deck with our food and clothing in hand we took our shoes off and slid into our slippers opened the front door to the burning wood stove (propane) they had a bottle of wine with two glasses sitting on the counter (thanks) it wasn't till morning when we got the full effect of the cottage witch is very clean and very well organized and stocked with many extras, the view was fantastic from the porch then again at the lower landing it hit 74 degrees at the end of Febuary we sat right down by the lake that was still frozen over I was in a tee shirt and sweat pants , we just sat around listening to music drinking a beer while my wife was sipping wine it was so quiet , it wa s a perfect getaway , thanks agian
