We're a city family with 2 kids and a dog, and we love to be outside doing fun things together!
We fell in love with our house at first site! It's dramatic post & beam construction appeals to our modern organic aesthetic, but it's the seamless integration of the outdoor surroundings that make it really special. The view of the lake & surrounding woods is truly magnificent! The countryside is spectacular. We love the rolling hills of the Taconic Mountains, the beautiful farmland, and all the wonderful outdoor activities the area has to offer. The ease of getting there is fantastic -there's hardly ever any traffic on the Taconic - making the 2 hour trip a breeze!
I do not have enough superlatives in my vocabulary to describe how spectacular this house is. No matter what the weather every member of my family was entertained...
We watched beautiful sunsets by the lake - wrapped in blankets and drinking fine wine and at breakfast, we watched beautiful red foxes cross the frozen lake, hit just so by the morning light... really stunning! We went on breathtaking hikes and spent fun filled days on the slopes. And once home, tired and cold, some cuddled by the fireplace, others played pool and then we all watched movies on the giant screen in the basement.. Really, there is something for all and we are so glad we were able to experience it!
This fabulous country house is a dream come true. Ideal location with all of the amenities. The home is warm, inviting and great for families. We enjoyed a wonderful vacation with our children and some extended family. The open kitchen made it easy to cook as a group and there was plenty of seating for everyone at mealtimes. Everyone found something to do in the local area and at night we were all happy to read and play games by the fire. This home is a great get a away.
