Kinderhook Lake cottage description

If you are looking for a 'party' house, this is not the place for which you are surfing. Rather, one or two mature couples, or a family of four or five who wish to spend some quality time together are the guests who will get the most from this lovely lakeside setting.
SUMMERTIME AT THE LAKE
Kinderhook Lake is a good size 'fishing hole' of 375 aces. It is stocked with Walleye, Northern Pike, Perch and Bass. Since the Lake is just outside the door, you can fish right off the bank. Our own grandchildren have a lot of fun going out with their fishing poles and then coming inside with their trophies, asking their moms to cook them. It’s great for swimming, too.
The Norman Rockwell Museum, Cooperstown Baseball Hall of Fame, the NYS Capitol, Tanglewood, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Lindenwald (the family home of Martin Van Buren, our 8th President and the first one born as an American citizen!), Saratoga Race Track, Lake George and “The Great Escape” amusement park – all are close enough to provide easy and entertaining day trips. (Always check schedules before a visit.)

          • The downstairs bedroom suite can be closed off from the Great Room for more privacy via a pocket door, which slides-in beneath the staircase when not in use. The upstairs Master has its own sitting room, where a twin bed would be available if needed or desired. There is a workstation with wireless connection available, if you have chosen to bring your computer with you. In the warmer months, you might prefer to bring your laptop outside and work on it from the deck while you enjoy the view.

          Other Amenities

              • The fireplace is a gas one, and turns on with the flip of a switch in the fall and winter months. The ambiance it provides is charming. If you are traveling with the children, it is probably the place where the two of you would enjoy some relaxing quiet time, after the youngsters have gone to bed! (There is a built-in night light in the fireplace, so that even in the warmer months-when lighting the fireplace is not feasible- a cozy and restful atmosphere can be created.)...moreless
