Quaint cozy cottage located in the Hudson Valley, approx 90 miles north of NYC on our 11 acre property on a 125 acre lake at the base of Stissing Mountain. We use the main house most weekends in the summer but the guest cottage (see photo located down the driveway from the main house) is available rent.
Rustic guest cottage has 2 bedroom, 2 baths (one with clawfoot tub), basic kitchen, hardwood floors throughout and vintage country furnishings.
One bedroom has a antique spindle double bed, the other bedroom has twin single beds. We have a couple kayaks, a canoe, fishing rods, swimming platform, dock, a couple adult and children's bikes, wooden swingset, all part of the rental package shared with the main house.
Stissing Lake is a gorgeous swimming lake. You can swim from the dock into the open waters to the swimming platform which is shared with the main house.
Since we do have vegetable garden, flower garden and a dozen chickens, we have learned from past experience this might not be the best choice for those guests with allergies.

Stissing Lake offers an ideal place to relax, lots of room to roam and indulge in the magic of nature. Enjoy spring blossoms, summer fun in the water or the gorgeous fall foliage. Hike Stissing Mountain, picnic on the lawn, kayak or paddle boat around Stissing Lake, swim without the distraction of motorized boats, fish for Bass, watch the swans and turtles on the lake or birdwatch at Thomson Nature Preserve.
