Copake cottage description

Pull up to this cedar-shingled lakefront house, tucked back behind mature trees and perennial gardens. Say 'adios' to the day's stress as you step inside and lake views greet you from nearly every window. Grab a beverage and head out to the wraparound deck to contemplate how you will spend the next day. But for now...dinner. Should you BBQ or head out for some local fare? Maybe take the kayak for a spin around the lake to check out the local wildlife? The next day finds you in a dilemma - head out to hike/bike/golf/shop/sightsee or....just hang in a deck chair with a book? In the Fall, make it your day's mission to find the best pumpkins/heirloom apples/local wine as you take in the spectacular foliage. For skiiers, test your mettle at Catamount (15mins) & Butternut (35 mins) Later, settle in front of the woodstove, hot cocoa nearby. And finally, revel in your best night's sleep as you allow the quiet to settle in around you. Welcome to Copake - life in the slow lane


Rental Agreement & Payment: Upon booking, we request that you send us a check to hold the booking. We will provide you with our specific payment requirements at the time of booking. We will also provide you with a rental agreement that you should sign and return with your deposit. Nothing too odious, but it outlines our cancellation policy, check in/out times (4pm& 10am), and house rules.

Cleaning Fee: $100-125

Pet Policy: We love our pets and realize that many guests would like to include theirs on their vacation. We would like to accommodate your four-legged friends, but they must be of the house-broken, well-behaved, non-chewing, non-scratching, non-obsessive barking variety. We do charge a per-pet fee of between $25-50, depending upon length of stay and size of pet. If you would rather kennel your pet, we have several great Doggie B&Bs, but they do book up quickly.

Privacy Details: We have had unfailing success with our guests who take great care of our home. Perhaps it is be cause we informally search folks through google, facebook, linked in and now, guestchecker. We do this just to make sure that we aren't hosting any 'unsavory' characters who will damage our home. So, for the record, guestchecker requires that we state the following: 'At any time during, before, or after your stay with us, your information may be shared with www.guestchecker.com'... We certainly hope never to do this, and would never want anyone to do that to us! At the end of the day, we respect our guests' privacy and will do everything to ensure it.
