                      Twin Island Lake is one ot three lakes next to Stissing Mountain and is good for boating and fishing. Stissing Lake is larger and deeper and good for swimming and boating with a public boat launch and recreation beach. Thompson Pond is a wildlife refuge. there are hiking trails around Thompson Pond and up Stissing Mountain to the fire Tower. The town of Pine Plains is small and quaint New England. It offers an Historic Inn for dining, several other small eateries, a WIFI coffee shop and library and good family owned market with local and organic produce.. Nearby towns, Millerton and Red Hook are larger and offer more; wineries, antique barns, and a “rail trail” in Millerton.

                      In Rhinebeck, The Dutchess County Fairgrounds has many events during the year.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      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.
