Quintessential Hudson Valley, just over an hour north of NYC, charming and peaceful 1950s cabin with private lake dock on beautiful Lake Dutchess. This non-motorboat, private lake is the perfect setting for the Fall foliage, Winter snowscapes, Spring blooms, and Summer swimming. Take a canoe ride (provided), fish (PLENTY of bass), a summer dip, or even an ice skate in the winter.
Immersed in the woods, this cozy log cabin is a perfect mix of rural/rustic charm and updated, modern appeal. Gut-renovated in early 2015, the cabin has an open living room with skylights, huge windows to the lake, and a retro fireplace. Three small bedrooms branch off the living room, two rooms with a queen-size bed each, and one with a bunk bed. One updated, white bathroom with shower. The kitchen comes fully equipped with new appliances and opens up to the dining room, which has a wall of windows to the lake. From there, you can exit onto the top deck of the house for the grill or relax on the patio furniture, or the porch swing on the lower deck. The house is built on a huge rock which is also great to lay on during the summers, or head down to the lake dock (just a few footsteps away), and hang out there, take a swim, or grab the canoe or paddle board.
Additional amenities provided include AC/Heating system, Wireless WiFi, fishing poles, canoe, paddleboard (summer) , firelogs (winter), high thread-count sheets, cotton towels, Beekman 1802 Toiletries, outdoor grill, washer/dryer, Apple TV with Netflix, Hulu, and HBO accounts, and most kitchen needs.
The location of the house is perfect. Though quietly nestled in the woods surrounded by nature, it is a mile or two from Interstate-84 which takes you straight to Beacon in 20 minutes. Metro North's Southeast station on the Harlem Line is 10 minutes away so a commute to NYC is very convenient for guests who need to come and go.
The area attractions include Beacon, which besides being a trendy Hudson Valley town right on the Hudson River with amazing shops and restaurants, is home to the world-renowned DIA Art Museum. And not much further from Beacon is the sculpture park Storm King, another must-see for any art-enthusiast. Other nearby Hudson Valley towns include Cold Spring, Carmel, Brewster, Pawling, and Wappinger Falls.
Summer activities in area include some of the best hiking in the country. Breakneck Ridge was named by Newsweek one of the 10 Best Hiking Trails in the Country. Trails.com named it the top hiking trail in North America! The Beacon Reservoir and Fire Tower is a nice hike too. Also, the iconic Appalachian Trail is less than a 10 minute drive from the house. The Hudson Valley area also has waterfalls, farms, horseback riding, and shopping. There is also Splashdown Beach, a water park 15 minutes away. During the winter, besides the frozen lake and beautiful snow-covered surroundings, there is Thunder Ridge Ski Resort 10 minutes away. The Autumn is amazing with the colorful fall foliage every which way and festivals abound. Go apple-picking at the beautiful Fishkill Farms, only ten minutes away. And of course Spring starts us into summer with the snow melting and the leaves and flowers blooming!
PLEASE NOTE: During the Winter and early Spring months, four-wheel/all-wheel drive is highly recommended to access the cabin. There is a particular hill on the road that is tough otherwise.

Jason purchased this cabin in 2015
We fell in love with lakefront cabin life staying with a friend and enjoying all that their lake had to offer. We were looking for a similar weekend getaway and this lovely house just fell from the Gods it seemed.
We've often been told that the house works both for someone who wants a rustic, authentic cabin-feel, as well as for someone who may perhaps not want to leave all modern conveniences aside and appreciates art and design. It's comfortable, cozy, tasteful, and can be as adventurous or peaceful as you make it. It seems to please almost every type of person needing a break from city life.
The cabin is very clean, very cozy, and so very, very cute! And we got a lot of use out of the lake, which was pristine. We will be back!
Loved our stay here! Just over an hour away from the city, this cabin overlooks a beautiful frozen lake in the winter. It is delightfully decorated and spotless, large enough for a small group of friends and family looking to get away from the city for a couple of days, and just a short drive away from Beacon. It was everything we were looking for!
We had a lovely time at this quaint lakeside cabin and would easily stay there again.
Conveniently just an hour drive from the city, we found clean, comfortable and charmingly decorated cabin. The rooms were excellent, with fresh sheets and towels. The view of the lake was beautiful and the fireplace provided a cozy and warm touch while we played games and watched movies during the evenings.
The cabin is super close to towns like Beacon, Fishkill and Newburgh, all with their own spots to visit and great restaurants.
Jason was very helpful, with clear instructions on how to get to and into the house, and tips on things to see and do.
Looking forward to coming back!
Jason was excellent and wants to make sure you have a great stay. Very responsive to messages, and made plenty of useful suggestions. The property itself, although small, was well maintained and cozy.
The cabin was clean and welcoming. The welcome note provided gave us all the information we needed. I would highly recommend this cabin for a nice weekend getaway! There are numerous state parks nearby that are great for hiking. The lake is just the right size for a row.
Very nice, well equipped and comfortable house in fantastic place just near the private lake. We've had a relaxing family weekend with our children and granddaughters with boating and fishing. Even with rain outside it worked well. Thanks a lot for the perfect organization and clean facility. Warm recommendations for families and small groups.
