About the property

3brs/2bath with private lake access

This three bedroom plus sleeping loft(or office) has it all. Private Lake Access on a no motor clean freshwater lake, 4 super-private wooded acres, beautifully furnished with formal dining room with window wall making meals a beautiful experience of nature. Fireplace, giant outdoor deck for bar-b-ques with all equipment. Also near Copake lake for rentals of Jet Skis and other types of boats.

Bash-bish falls, Mount Washington, Taconic State park with all of its swimming holes, waterfalls, mountain trails, nature walks and camping.

Just down the road from Camp Pontiac and Camp Anne, perfect for parent visiting and family get togethers. Near the top antiquing center and shopping of Hudson and moments away from the Copake Country Auction.

The area has some of the best fall foliage in the Northeast and the property explodes in color for three weeks in the fall. Winter brings skiing at Catamount and Butternut which are the perfect learning mountains (I learned there myself).

The house is only a one hour and fifty minute drive from New York City and is easily accessible by the Metro North and Amtrak trains.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

I had an amazing time at Dan's Copake home. The pictures don't do it justice. It's open, bright and spacious. The back yard is absolutely incredible and really made our stay that much better. There's also two great decks and a grill.

The lake across the street is beautiful to look at, but the water isn't ideal for swimming. So if you love to be in the water, you'll likely have to take a quick drive. However, within just 10 minutes of the home you have Bash Bish falls state park, which has beautiful water falls and swimming holes. You have the Taconic Mountains for incredible hiking, there's Copake lake where you can rent kayaks and jet skis (although not a real sand/beach area here) and some other lakes in the area where you can lay in the sand. We went to Prospect Lake in Grea Barrington, MA (about 20 minutes away) and there was a big slide into the lake, a floating platform, and they had picnic tables and grills. You could also rent kayaks, canoes and pedal boats there and all the rentals were less than $10! Beach area there was small but I would definitely recommend this place for the affordable rentals and awesome view.

My group and I will definitely be coming back again next year!

Thanks Dan!

Beautiful house!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is just beautiful - full of windows with lovely wooded views, cathedral ceilings, and skylights. It's as comfortable and inviting as the pictures suggest. When I was looking for a rental, I just kept comparing all the others to this one, until I finally just booked it, and I'm glad I did. The master bedroom is on the second level, up the spiral stairs, and it's a beautiful space and very private. Dan, the owner, was very helpful with recommendations for enjoyable activities in the area, and even agreed to return a pillow we left behind, at no charge. We loved the house and the week's entertainments - the area is gorgeous - with nearby waterfalls in the state park, picturesque golf courses, hiking, Tanglewood concert series, and Copake Lake. Thanks, Dan, for sharing your house, and for returning the pillow!!

This is the one!

  • 5 of 5

I'm sorry for not responding sooner. Your home was the best vacation rental in which I have stayed today and I rent frequently in the Berkshires. I am going to want to stay there again for a week. The home was exactly what my wife and I needed for our family. Your instructions on what to do in the area really helped us out, and John was really wonderful as well. The grounds were beautiful. What can I say, I have finally found the right place.

I highly recommend staying in this country home. We had a wonderful vacation here! The house is very large and has great decor. It's also very clean. Dan made our stay very easy and worry free. Our favorite part of our stay was getting up and walking across the street to swim in the lake!
