Fishkill cottage description

Charming, delightful, restful, private - all describe the stone and cedar-sided cottage on a private 100 acre estate. Situated approximately in the center of the estate, there are great views to the lake, and also across a beautiful six acre mowed meadow. Your own private gravel drive winds alongside the five acre private lake, where you can fish, swim, or enjoy a rowboat or paddle-boat. A stream which feeds the lake flows on two sides of the cottage. Across the stream are trails to hike and explore. Around the lake are benches to enjoy a good book or the sunsets.

The country cottage is two story, but both floors are ground level! There is easy access to enjoy the outdoors through sliding glass doors on either level. Level one has a full kitchen with bistro table for two; perfect for morning coffee or menu planning. The dining area has table for six and a living room, with windows, and a wall of rough hewn cedar to complement the wide plank wood floor. Living room, and kitchen look out to the stream across the private driveway. The second level is accessed by an open staircase and has a bedroom on either end of the cottage with a shared hall bathroom. There is a sitting alcove just inside the upstairs sliding door leading to a fantastic 12 foot by 27 foot covered porch. Mornings and evenings are terrific times to be on the porch, and enjoy the meadow before you.

                  Car: Necessary

                  The Hudson Valley, from south of Willow Lake Farms to north is abundant in activities and places to see and visit. Storm King Art Center is one of our favorites, with West Point Military Academy also close by. The streets of Cold Springs offer antiques galore, with a beautiful Hudson River park to enjoy the sights and sounds of the river. Of course, plenty of culinary delights with the varied restaurants. Beacon, offers a very unique art view with lots of galleries complimenting the DIA: Beacon Museum just on the edge of the Beacon Train station. Don't miss Hudson Beach Glass, as well as numerous delicious restaurants. To the north of Willow Lake, is the wonderful Dutchess Rail Trail, culminating in the Walkway Over the Hudson, a state of NY Historic park. Of course the Walkway can be done independently. Hyde Park has the Culinary Institute of America, and Roosevelt museum and house, and also the Vanderbilt mansion and grounds. All with walking trails for your enjoyment along the Hudson. Wineries are abundant in the Hudson Valley, all within a short drive of Willow Lake Farms, including Millbrook Vinery and many others just on the west side of the Hudson. Of course, save lots of time to relax on the lake in our guest boats, or take a swim to the platform in the middle of the lake, or just relax in one of the benches around the lake. Plenty of time at night to enjoy a campfire at the guest area fire pit, and just visit with friends. The air is clean, the water beautiful, and the enjoyment plentiful.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Fishkill:
                  Willow Lake Farms has a history as rich as the Hudson River Valley itself, with connections to individuals who helped shape the history of both Dutchess County and the entire United States.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Willow Lake is an experience in itself. With over 30 mowed acres and some 70 acres of woods, there is a lot to explore! Hiking is easy, and the views are exceptional. The woods always offer unique specimens of plants, moss, lichen and other unusual vegetation. Birds are plentiful, with early mornings and evenings yielding views of wild turkeys or deer. Raising organic chickens and vegetable gardens are also a treasured pastime.
