  • Perfect weekend getaway

    "I wanted to surprise my husband on his birthday with a weekend getaway outside of the city. We invited a couple of friends to stay with us, and brought my aging Lab mix Willis. We arrived late on Friday night, and were blown away by the barn. Some of the original beams were kept and give the place a very warm, rustic feel. But the hot tub, sauna, spa shower downstairs, gaming systems, and tv were anything but! The place has the perfect balance of homey and modern. The wood floors and wood burning stove give the place a warm feel, and that modern chef's kitchen makes it easy to whip up a five star meal. The best surprise though was in the morning when we all got a look at the view for the first time. Amazing, picturesque picture windows all throughout the main floor - each more beautiful than the last. Freshly fallen snowscape, the sound of the creek trickling past the house - Willis had a blast trying to follow the animal tracks in the snow! We all had such a good time this weekend. We will definitely be coming back!"

  • Great weekend stay!

    "A group of old friends/new dad's decided to get away for a weekend to reconnect with each other. This place exceeded our expectations! Denise was an incredible host - made sure that we had everything we needed and, when we didn't, resolved it. She made everything easy. We are a pretty low maintenance group, so as long as we had a fire pit, grill and water, we were happy. The proximity to the water, cleanliness of the place and added bonus of having access to the motor boat made the experience even better. Of note, if you're looking for seclusion, the house if located right beside one of the (small) boat launches for the lake. We saw some people coming in and out of the launch/around the back yard (which is the lakefront), but that didn't bother us. Everyone was very friendly. If we can arrange our schedules, this gem will become our yearly meetup place. Thanks Denise!"

  • Family Reunion - Countless Memories

    "Celebrated my mother's 70th this summer by serving up three generations in one house for one week. There was something for everyone - actually, we did not even get to all the stuff we wanted to do. The house was immediately comfortable, while having all the amenities necessary to have a great vacation. The kayaks were used multiple times a day, as was the hot tub. The lakefront offered us endless hours of fishing. My 8-year old caught her first fish (and then some 10 more!) over the course of our week's stay. My husband & I ran each day along the lake and the sights of deer, beaver, bunnies and more were so fun. We went cherry picking at a nearby farm. We ventured off to the Catamount Adventure Park - a zip-line galaxy of fun. We climbed Bash Bish Falls - yes, even our matriarch made the excursion! And the very best was the view each and every day - rain or shine - of the lake itself. Each of us stole quiet moments in the early morning to watch the sunrise and later that day would return for a festive gathering around the campfire. The rainbow that decorated the skies on our final night completed the entire experience. We would love to make the Copake Lake House an annual trek...fingers crossed we will be able to!"

  • A delightful experience

    "Our stay in Avalon Cottage was truly delightful. It is a charming home and so comfortable. The Cottage is ideally located for day trips to explore areas of the Hudson River Valley and Western Massachusetts and so welcoming to us on our return "home". We enjoyed the quiet and relaxed atmosphere, especially time on the back deck relaxing, reading and watching the wildlife. Our vacation was truly wonderful thanks in large part to feeling so at home in Avalon Cottage."
