Kent Lakes cottage description
Peaceful. Restorative. Healing.
Quiet, comfortable, and full of light and love, our stone cottage is the perfect place to escape NYC and renew your body, mind and soul.
Nestled in the woods just 1 hour from Manhattan in the hidden gem of Kent Lakes, NY, the cottage is the perfect country escape for a single, couple, or small family. The cottage is a great option for people who want a convenient country getaway without the hassle of owning a second home. Easy access to all major highways, parkways, and Metro-North make trips down to NYC a breeze.
Well-behaved pets are welcome, and the shaded, fenced-in run gives you peace of mind that your entire family – including the four-leggers – will be happy.
All around you, the grandeur and charm of the Hudson Valley awaits. Mountains, lakes, rivers…hiking, biking, swimming…antiques, farms, world-class gardens…snowmen, sledding, cross-country skiing – season after season, it’s all just minutes away. Cold Spring, Beacon, Hudson, and a host of other charming Hudson Valley towns are all just a short, scenic drive away. You’re close to everything while still being quiet and secluded.
The house is thoughtfully decorated without ever feeling fussy. It’s all designed to help you relax, let go, and breathe easy…like being in an old friend’s home. All of the amenities are included, there’s an office space where you can get work done, and there are numerous spots to curl up with a good book or just take in the views of the surrounding forest.
Unwind. Let go. Sleep in. Breathe easy. Take in the charm of the area, or enjoy the peace and quiet of doing nothing at all. Either way, you’ll feel relaxed and renewed.

Most Restful Vacation Home
Most Restful Vacation Home
We originally chose this rental as a home-base in order to be able to visit NYC, which is only an hour away by car. However, once there, we never made it to the city! There was so much to do in the immediate area and Liz & Chris's home was so warm and inviting we stayed put. There is so much natural beauty to take in and the hiking trails are endless. On my first day at the house I laid down for a quick nap and slept for 3 hours! I attribute the long slumber to the amazingly comfortable bed and warm, serene décor. I would highly recommend this vacation home to anyone. Whether you are looking for rest/rejuvenation, a place to land after taking in the excitement of NYC, or outdoor recreation....this place has it all! The description of "cottage" threw me a little, I expected it to be small...but it wasn't at all. The house is a perfect size and truly has all the comforts of home and more! I loved some of the small details like the Weber grill in the yard, Vitamix blender in the kitchen, and the wonderful bath soaps and towel warmer in the bathroom - simply superb!

Peaceful. Quiet. Comfortable. Warm. All of these descriptors come to mind when I reminisce about my visits to Liz's cozy cottage. The cottage is set back on a sizable chunk of land in the Hudson Valley area, surrounded by the beauty of nature. Being from New York City, Liz's cottage is a haven for those times when I need a break from the hustle and bustle. The stylish, yet inviting decor Liz has chosen really makes you feel at home, and the beds are incredibly comfortable. There is also a little trail up into the woods at the back of the house that provides an even closer commune with nature if you so desire. Within a 20 minute scenic drive, there are all of the creature comforts of great restaurants, a movie theater, and grocery stores, as well as a gorgeous lake and the Hudson River that you pass as you drive to and from town. All-in-all, Liz's cottage is a great respite from busier, metropolitan areas, and even a nice little retreat if you're fortunate enough to regularly live within the peaceful bliss of nature.
