About the owner: I am an artist (muralist and decorative painting) living in NYC.
Why the Owner Chose Pine Plains: I acquired this cabin from it's original owner who grew up around these lakes in the summer. I was thrilled that it had never been 'upgraded'. I refurbished it while trying to keep true to a vintage 50's lake cabin and still enjoy combing the local yard sales for items that belong to this venue.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: Lovely view of lake from front room and also thru the interior window while laying in bed. The sunrise over the lake can be glorious.
In the spring and early summer, the frogs croaking and in the fall, geese honking serenade the otherwise quiet setting.
