Pine Plains cottage description

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 double bed and single bed. We have 3 kayaks, a canoe, fishing rods, swimming platform, dock, 5 adult bikes, 5 children's bikes, wooden swingset, all part of the rental package.

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.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1994

              About the owner: I run a food magazine and have 2 children. We spend weekends and holidays in the country in the main house on the property.

              Why the Owner Chose Pine Plains:
              20 years ago we weekend in the country looking for a place to call our own. We married here and raised our two children. 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.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              Stissing Lake is our little slice of heaven.
