We bought our lake cottage 2 years ago and did a full interior renovation including Central Air Conditioning. The great room includes living room, dining room and kitchen with a 20 ft cathedral ceiling. There is 1 bedroom with a queen bed and 1 bedroom with a single bed. The extra deep sofa comfortably sleeps 1 person and there is a queen air mattress available. The bathroom has a large shower with steam component and a washer and dryer. There is everything you will need including towels, sheets, and all to cook. Sorry there is no dishwasher, enjoy the view of the lake from the big picture window above the sink!. Enjoy beautiful and serene views of the lake from the screened-in porch and every room, including the main bedroom. Relax on the lakeside private patio with Adirondack chairs and fire pit all day and night.
Our house is located within the Cove association neighborhood of Copake Lake, NY. The postal address is Hillsdale, NY but in fact the house sits in the town of Copake. It is an intimate lake community of roughly 50 houses with 75 full time and seasonal residents.
There is room for 2-3 cars. The nearest town center is Copake, NY and Hillsdale, NY, both about a 10 minute drive, where you will find local shops and restaurants. Hudson, NY is the largest city near by. It sits at the edge of the Hudson River and is about a 20 minute drive. Hudson is full of antique shops, music venues and great restaurants. There is an Amtrak station in town.
This is an intimate lake community with friendly neighbors very close by on either side of the house. The house is at the bottom of a steep hill. Cars are parked at the top of the hill. Guests access the house by walking down the hill through the woods. There are no proper steps. It is not conducive to rolling luggage, strollers or the elderly. However, "the climb is worth the view" as they say...
