Hillsdale barn description

You won't see another property like this. The barn renovation took us years to complete and we are very proud of the finished product. Ample space to entertain. Our custom made dining room table comfortably sits 16-20 people! Sit back and watch the deer/turkey/pheasant go by your window. Full upscale luxury in a museum quality building that won't disappoint you. It's all about the details ! You can entertain at the game table, sit by the wood burning stove, have the children play on the WII, work out in the gym, sit in the sauna/hot tub/take a hike. Golfers: 3 Miles from Copake Greens on Copake Lake. Boaters: rent time/boat on the lake. Hikers: 20 minutes to Bash Bish Falls! Its all here and a its paradise. We built this barn as a guest house for our friends and family to visit, and with the daily family routine, we no longer have the opportunities we used to go use the property. We've had plenty of happy renters return time and again. Please check with me for winter rentals, as we only rent on exception during the ski season! Its beautiful year round, amazing spring, summer, and spectacular fall months.

There is so much to do in Columbia County in the summer. Biking is one of our favorite things to do. Enjoy Summer Theater at the MacHayden Theater. Try out Catamount Zip Line Park (6 miles away), go to the Ore Pit Swimming Hole (its really a fun place to take kids), take a hike on the Alander Mountain Trail near Bash Bish. Jiminy Peak is 40 miles north and has a lot going on year round.

I'm sorry I cannot accommodate Weddings, Bachelor Parties, Film Location, Legislative Conventions, Insurance Conventions, Pig Roasts, Live Animal Sacrifices, or any Parties in excess of 8 people at any time.
Sorry !

Keywords: Museum Quality Barn completely restored nestled in 52 acres of fields, woods, hiking trails. All new Recreation and Entertainment Paradise. Poker Table, Foosball, 50inch Plasma, Gourmet Kitchen, tremendous dining area, wood burning stove. Downstairs use the sauna, hot tub, and elliptical.
3 Miles from Copake Greens Golf, Boating, and minutes from Berkshires hot spots.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1993

              About the owner: I've owned this property for 22 years, and its my favorite place to be year round. We've done a lot of entertaining here over the years, and our friends love visiting. We even had our wedding reception on the property! I hope you enjoy your stay. Joe

              Why the Owner Chose Hillsdale:
              I didn't choose to buy a vacation rental! We built the barn so our closest friends and family could come and stay us, while having their own space. We put a tremendous amount of thought and time into every detail. It's not your typical rental!

              The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
              Relaxing, and away from the frenzied pace of the city. You are in the middle of nature.
