"We had a lovely time in Michael's house. The interior is nicely decorated and full of idiosyncratic curiosities and art to enjoy. You can tell the house belongs to an artist. Michael couldn't have been nicer as a landlord. The transactions were very easy. The house is quiet, yet convenient to Hudson street shops and restaurants and an easy exit location for going to events at Bard or across the river. The backyard was great for barbecue and drinks outside. Enjoy!"

"We came up for an annual "boys trip" that I do with my father (early 70s) and my 7 and 5 year old sons. From booking to scheduling/logistics and during our trip, Denise could not have been more fantastic and helpful. The house is really great and exactly what it looks like on the website. It's pretty basic on the outside and a nice, smaller space, but the layout is perfect and the finishing is fantastically well done. The whole place was clearly gut renovated and the kitchens and bathrooms are really nice. The bedrooms are nicely furnished with new, comfortable beds and nice linens. My Dad can be funny about beds and he was happy as a clam
The highlight of the place though is the views of the lake, either from the nice screened-in porch or from the living room (which is all glass fronted onto the porch)
The house comes with use of both a powerboat and a canoe/kayak and has a nice little dock. My boys fished off of the boat and also off the dock. We are total novice fishermen and the boys were still able to catch 10 fish between them over 2-3 days (maybe 3 hours of fishing in total). The lake is very well stocked and we literally caught fish by dropping lines straight down 2 feet off of the dock. The kids are not long on patience for fishing and so it was absolutely perfect for them
The house is only a 10-15 minute ride to Bish-Bash falls, which is a great hike and a really neat thing to see. Everyone had a great time with that. The house also has a firepit in the back and lots of dry (covered) firewood, so an early evening fire and s'mores was super-easy and fun
Just an absolutely great experience for everyone and we will definitely be back next year!"

"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!"
