Kinderhook Lake house description

Completely renovated two level ranch on three acres with direct frontage on Kinderhook Lake. All season room with wraparound decks with lake views; bi-level deck/dock on the water; gas fireplaces on both levels; modern well equipped kitchen with double oven and dishwasher; and a 60 inch flat screen TV are just some of the amenities you will enjoy.

Upper level is air conditioned and has three bedrooms (2 queens and twin beds); tiled bath with tub/shower combo; open kitchen/dining/living room area; full wall brick fireplace with flat screen TV; and, patio doors leading to all season sun room (another flat screen in sunroom) and Vermont Castings gas grill. Decks can be accessed from the sunroom and from two of the bedrooms.

Lower level has one queen bedroom; tiled bath with walk in shower; large open family room/entertainment area with full wall brick fireplace and 60 inch TV; beautiful hand made bar area; and, a utility/laundry room with washer/dryer. Patio doors open to a ground level deck and an expansive back yard leading to the lake. The TV has 3D capability, Netflix and internet access, and a Play Station 3 with blu ray and a DVD player. Games and movies are available.

At the water there is another deck/dock and a storage unit with everything you will need to enjoy the lake, including deck furniture, two kayaks, a paddle boat, tubes, floats, fishing poles and life jackets (including one for your dog). Fish or swim right off the dock, there’s even a golf cart to help you enjoy the property.

Kinderhook Lake is located in beautiful northern Columbia County. Our house is only 5 minutes from I-90 (B-1 exit) and 15 minutes from the Taconic Parkway. A 30 minute ride will get you to the Amtrak station in Hudson. Year round activities include skiing in the Berkshires (Jiminy Peak, Butternut and Catamount all less than 40 minutes away); the Catskills (Hunter and Windham Mountains just over an hour’s drive); the Adirondacks (Gore and West Mountain within 1 and ½ hours); and, Vermont ( 2 hours to Mount Snow). Partake in cultural activities like Tanglewood and SPAC; summer stock; museums in Williamstown and Albany; and Olana all within short drives. In July and August pack a picnic basket and take in the races at Saratoga or visit the Casino year round. Shop at the Lee Outlets or Albany area malls or spend the day antiquing in Hudson or Lenox. Fine or casual dining is available throughout the area. The Olde Kinderhook Golf Club is practically across the road and Winding Brook Country Club is a short drive.

In the spring time view the burst of colors, especially the apple blossoms from the many apple farms in the area. Return in the fall for spectacular fall foliage and apple picking. Columbia County is known for its farmer’s markets. In fact there are about a half dozen apple trees right on our lake property. You can pick apples without having to leave the yard and bake a great pie to have while enjoying your stay.

Partake in cultural activities like Tanglewood and SPAC; summer stock; museums in Williamstown and Albany; and Olana all within short drives. In July and August pack a picnic basket and take in the races at Saratoga or visit the Casino year round. Shop at the Lee Outlets or Albany area malls or spend the day antiquing in Hudson or Lenox. Fine or casual dining is available throughout the area. The Olde Kinderhook Golf Club is practically across the road and Winding Brook Country Club is a short drive.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: My wife and I are long time NY Capital Region residents and live about 45 minutes away. We want you to consider yourselves our guests as opposed to renters. We can't enjoy the property as much as we would like due to my wife's disability so we would like to share it with others.

              Why the Owner Chose Kinderhook Lake:
              I have been going to Kinderhook Lake since I was 5 years old when my grandfather built a vacation home here. This is the third property we have owned on the Lake and it is one of the nicest settings by far. Our family and children enjoyed many fun activities on the Lake and we know you will too. Columbia County offers a mix of rural charm with nearby city amenities.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We chose this property because of its spectacular setting. In the front yard you don't even know there is a road except for the driveway leading to it. The sunroom and the lower level deck are our favorite spots to relax and enjoy ourselves with friends and family. Of course the lake itself is the biggest draw. We have an annual pig roast in the fall with about 80 people attending. Although we don't have grandchildren (yet) we love to watch children have fun in the many ways available here. We love to pick apples from the trees on the property and enjoy a home baked pie to take back home.
