Enjoy country living with a lake only a stroll away!
Tons of light, through new windows, skylights, and glass doors. New floors, electrical, plumbing, insulation, roof, siding- practically everything is new, including beds and furniture. Views of organic fields from the bedrooms. Beyond the fields, views of the mountains will greet you in the morning. Enjoy breakfast from the sunroom, or lounge around in the living room, which can comfortably sleep a guest on the oversized couch.
The house is situated in a desirable lake community on a dirt road that leads only to houses, so does not have as much traffic. Peaceful and relaxing, this is a place to enjoy nature and explore the Hudson Valley and the Berkshires. There is a community beach on the lake. Numerous parks and hiking opportunities abound in the area. Close proximity to Mt. Washington. For those that wish to enjoy some of the local culture or shopping, 20 minutes to Great Barrington and Millerton and 40 to Rhinebeck. 10 minutes off of the Taconic State Parkway. Enjoy Tanglewood, Jacob's Pillow, or other Berkshire attractions just slightly north of your country house escape.
You will have full access to the house, the land, and the lake via a private beach that several homeowners share. Lake has a dock as well as a float and a sandy beach area.
Your hosts are not on property (we like to give you your space), but are only a half an hour away if needed.
Interaction with guests
Your host and hostess can be available to make your stay more comfortable. Additional services such as grocery purchases can be set up prior to your arrival for an additional cost. Your host and hostess will remain off-grounds unless arrangements for check-in include meeting. We are always available if needed as we live nearby, but wish to leave you your space. If needed, we can be reached by telephone or email throughout your visit to ensure that you are comfortable.
Other things to note
Please note that the second bedroom does not have a full bed, but rather has a crib and two twin mattresses that can be placed anywhere in the house. There is space in the room for an air mattress, if desired. The living room has enough space to sleep a guest on the couch, but if additional guests would like to stay, an air mattress can be supplied and used as needed.
Please note there is not good cell service at the house, however there is wifi.
We have worked hard to fix the home, so we ask that you treat the house as if it were your own. Please do not smoke. Please be quiet enough after 10pm that your neighbors will not be disturbed. We have never had to "keep it down", and don't foresee this being a problem, but figured we should say so for the record.
My partner and I live in the Hudson Valley and truly love everything the area has to offer. We have a young daughter. Since moving to the Hudson Valley full time, we've been enjoying hiking, swimming, going to museums, and finding fun activities to do as a family. We also love exploring the farmer's markets in the area and all the delectable goodies!
