Copake house description

Three homes on adjacent lots available for larger groups and small retreats. Please note that this is a peaceful and serene neighborhood with summer cottages on a non-motor boat lake.
Located on lovely upper Rhoda Lake (2 square miles in size), these three contemporary homes are beautifully furnished and can accommodate up to 40 people. Easy walk between the three houses. For special occasions, we have a 4th lake house 5 minutes away that accommodates another 8-10 people. Each home is set on the lake and in the woods on a total of 20+ acres in a peaceful and serene natural setting within a quiet residential neighborhood.
Two of the homes have tennis courts and one has an in-ground pool. Please see photos for property map for the three homes as well as the individual floor plans for each home.
Lovely lawn area, outdoor decks and docks for kayaking, canoeing or rowing in the summer, fall and spring. The lake is a quiet non-motor boat lake that is great for fishing and for swimmers. For motor boats, Copake Lake is a short 5 minute drive where motor boats for pleasure and waterskiing can be rented. Only 15 minutes from Catamount Ski area with skiing in the winter and a fun, challenging ropes course in the summer. Also only 35 minutes from Butternut Ski area. Five minutes from the Greens Country Club for golf (open to the public) and fine dining.
There are numerous excellent restaurants within 15-30 minutes, many are farm to table and serve from local organic vendors. 30 minutes from Hudson, NY, with fine restaurants and great antiquing. 30 minutes from Great Barrington, ma, the base of the Berkshires, a charming New England town with fine restaurants, shops and cultural institutions. 15 minutes from Millerton, another charming northeast town with many fine restaurants, shops, Movie Theater and the Harney Tea House.
Each home has a large kitchen, double height living rooms and spacious bedrooms. All have wonderful fireplaces and decks. All have central air conditioning.
Great lake swimming (no beach area or wading in) with an entry off the dock. Fishing with license which is easily obtained.
This is a lovely home for a peaceful and serene get-together with friends or family. It is a quiet and tranquil residential neighborhood and outdoor loud noise will not be allowed. Enjoy the country and woods at their finest!
