                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2013

                  About the owner: Our family purchased this property shortly after visiting a close friend who lives in the area. It was one of the first properties we saw, and we kept on coming back to it. You will feel the same way!

                  Why the Owner Chose Copake Falls:
                  The property has a Estate feeling and while being within a 5-minute drive to downtown Hillsdale, nearby farms and cultural attractions, it is one of the few properties in the area abutting the State Park with direct access to trails from its own backyard while sitting on the top of the hill with Northern views of the Berkshires and Western views of the Catskills. It is the perfect place to vacation all-year-round.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
                  Newly furnished with contemporary and transitional furniture. Fresh/new linens provided. Extremely comfortable house ideal for relaxation and/or entertainment. Conveniently located to nearby Catamount Ski and Adventure Area.
