Overview

About the property

Original 1950s, Lakefront Log-cabin With Updated Amenities And Decor.

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, quiet, 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: This cabin is NOT suitable for large groups or party weekends. The lake is a quiet place and more suitable for quiet getaways or small family vacations. No more than 4 adults and a maximum occupancy of 6 adults/children, strictly enforced.

We do not rent to anyone under the age of 25, sorry no exceptions.

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.

About Jason

I am a Brooklyn-based designer and graphic artist, married to my husband Saar with a small, sweet dog named Annie.

Jason purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Jason chose New York

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

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!

Great little cabin on a scenic little lake!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this cabin that's only 1.5 hours north of NYC. Jason was easy to rent from. The cabin isn't fancy and the BRs are small, but it was recently remodeled and was very cute and suited us just fine. The deck is perfect for hanging out, great views all around and a nice sense of privacy. It was very quiet while we were there over a holiday weekend, which was just what we were looking for.

We did have issues w/ the plumbing one night while we were there. We texted Jason when we discovered the issue, which was pretty late on a Friday. Jason responded almost immediately and arranged to have a plumber come the next day. So while a little inconvenient for us, Jason did whatever he could to fix the issue, and was super generous about it as well. Just what you want from a homeowner - mutual respect and a commitment to making sure our holiday was enjoyable.

I highly recommend Jason's cabin, and hope to go back.

Another lovely stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had stayed here two years ago and loved it, so decided to rent it again for a nice quick trip out of the city for the weekend. Its an hour and a half drive without traffic, which makes it perfect for a weekend getaway! Jason is a great host and is accessible for any questions that may come up. The kitchen is nicely stocked with cooking tools. The linens and pillows/mattresses are so comfortable! We loved our stay and will definitely visit again!
