Cozy home, great location, wonderful experience
Cozy home, great location, wonderful experience
My family of three (husband, wife, and a two-year-old son) just returned from a six-week stay at this property on Copake Lake. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. - The home has a charming, comfortable cottage feel, with plenty of room for our small family, and enough space for the occasional overnight visitor - We found the kitchen to be reasonably well stocked with cookware, etc (though you may want to bring your favorite knives if you're an avid cook) - The large deck had comfortable furniture and a nice grill, and was shaded most of the day for relief from a hot July sun - Aside from a few cobwebs in windows on our arrival, the property was very clean. Everything matched the description. - The location is really great. Sitting on the deck, you can see the lake. A small beach is three minutes' walk away. Small towns with grocery shopping, farm stands, and restaurants are within ten minutes' drive. The rural location made for some beautiful (if hilly!) running and cycling. - The owners of the home were extremely responsive. During our stay, we didn't have any problems that required their help. But before and after the stay, it was a pleasure to communicate with them. Security deposit was returned promptly. Highly recommended for a very relaxing summer stay!

About the owner: Neil and I live in Newton, Massachusetts and have two children ages 22 and 24. I am a psychotherapist and have a private practice and Neil works as a manager in a medical web site development company. We love spending week ends with our children at Copake Lake!
Why the Owner Chose Copake Lake:
We inherited this property from Neil's mother and father. They would spend 6 months at Copake Lake and 6 months in Del Ray Beach, Florida. Once they became too old to travel back and forth, Neil and I assumed ownership. We have many wonderful memories of spending time at Copake Lake with our young children and their grandparents. Many many scrabble games have been played at the dining room table!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love this home because it has a very open feel to it - the kitchen, dining room and living are like one large room yet with separate areas. It is ideal for being able to cook a meal while talking with friends and family. Another thing we love is that we all seem to sleep so incredibly well when we are here and we don't know whether it is the country air or the very comfortable beds, but we all delight in having great night sleeps! Another major plus of the house is the very spacious deck. During the summer, we eat most of our meals outside and it is so easy and convenient. The sunsets are exquisite!!
