Property description

Mentioned in 6/15/15 NY MAG "Hack Your Summer issue. "Hide out in the Hills". Avoid the crowds and drive ONLY 3 MILES to Copake Lake for dining, award wining golf course, horseback ridding, jet skiing, fishing, boating, bicycling. Relax in my charming 1800's Hudson Valley farmhouse with original exposed beams and the feel of English Country Cottage. (Guests say my photos don't do it justice.) Planted on a gorgeous private 24 acre wooded and manicured plot, surrounded by breathtaking panoramic views and bucolic rolling farmlands. Glass enclosed 'sun room - dinning room overlooks Bluestone patio covered in a canopy of trees, looking down past the garden and sloping lawn onto the babbling brook, barn and private pond for fishing and skating (no swimming). Cozy and immaculate home where decor is like a B&B. People love to cook in the fully stocked kitchen made of whitewashed barnwood and original slate with two big windows looking onto the gardens and nature's bounty. You cannot beat the location with horses, cows, ducks, chickens for neighbors on my private dirt road. It's about a mile to the Rheinstrom Hill Audubon Sanctuary with a nature learning center and over 1000 acres and 5 beautiful moss covered walking and hiking trails. Property is nestled at the foothills of the Berkshires in Hillsdale (midway bet Hudson NY and Great Barrington MA) (18 miles to either). But no need to even leave the property with hammock, fire pit, netted gazebo and gas grill plus lots of land. Lots of kids activities and events locally. Farm stands everywhere - the area pioneered the farm to table movement. Many choice spots for GREAT FISHING and SWIMMING and GOLFING. There are 9 GREAT GOLF courses locally as well as 3 miniature courses and 2 local driving ranges.ONLY 7 miles to Copake Falls Taconic State Park for hiking on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail (bike rentals available) with beautiful Bash Bish waterfalls or swim in the 40 foot deep Old Ore Pit Pond Swimming Hole in clear upwelling water. Rudd Pond -20 miles, or Lake Taconic State Park - 6 miles. Only 2 mile drive to Taconic High School with tennis courts, state of the art Jr. Olympic indoor pool and workout room. 8 miles to Catamont summer Adventure Park (with Zip Lines) 25 minutes to town of Millerton for the Trevor private zoo, 20 minutes to Great Barrington Ma for jazz, theater, shopping, fine dining, 30 minutes to Stockbridge for theater, Lee -outlet for shopping, Lenox for Shakespeare. Many attractions, antiquing, outdoor activities, culture, and festivals. 20 minutes to Hudson NY for outstanding restaurants, entertainment, big box stores shopping, movies, and The Helsinki Club. 50 minutes to TANGELWOOD or Albany. Great antiquing and restaurants locally. Enjoy Summer Theater at the MacHayden Theater, Jacob's Pillow, Shakespeare Festival, Stockbridge Theater, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Music Mountain, New Roeliff Jansen Library art exhibits, performances and special events. NYC guests: 120 miles north - a 2.5 hour drive, Boston guests: 3 hour drive west on the Mass Pike. Below are links to local SOME events and cultural happenings.
