About the Property

5 bedrooms, 3 baths, views galore! Plus 3 bedroom guest house available May-Nov.

Welcome to Lachland! This 5 bedroom home has been a beloved family vacation home for 4 generations. Lachland is located on Tonche Mountain, a privately owned mountain on a private, gated road. The estate encompasses over 40 acres and is surrounded by many hundreds more of private and conserved land. You will experience spectacular mountain and reservoir views from the porches and bedrooms, and nature walks that begin the moment you step outside. The gracious 3000 square foot home easily contains and entertains a large family or friends group. Very comfortably sleeps 13 guests, with additional space for squeezing a few more in. Guest house sleeps 6. New this year are 2 "glamping" options, rustic outbuildings buildings--a quirky, cheap option. The house began life as a barn in the late 1800's, it was converted to a hunting lodge in the early 20th century by Senator Walton, the previous owner. It has been in our family since the late 1940's, when the hunting lodge was converted once again to a family home. The original hand-hewn barn beams are still visible in much of the house. The decor has charming vintage appeal with many original details. Bedrooms include: the master bedroom suite with a king sized bed, private bathroom and dressing area, the all season 'sleeping porch' that is great for kids or families with 5 twin beds, the green room with 2 twin beds, the blue room with 2 full beds, and the sunrise room which has a king sized bed (custom built raised bed to witness the sunrise, truly awe-inspiring). Vintage 1950's kitchen is well equipped and has large modern appliances. You'll be ready for everything from a 9-course-from-scratch dinner to Chinese take-out. The dining room is directly adjacent to the kitchen and has seating for up to 17 on a lovely antique banquet table. Many of our guests have commented how wonderful and rare it is to be able to sit down together at one table. A large living room makes it easy to reconnect with family and friends over a game, a lively conversation or a movie. A stately Steinway piano, circa 1893, adds to the fun. The loving room is part of the original barn structure, and maintains a rustic elegance. Lounging on the wide open porch and soaking up the spectacular views is a required activity. 3 bathrooms ensure plenty of room. You will have access to basic household items such as dish soap, paper towels, aluminum foil, etc, to make your vacation seamless. House linens are provided. Explore the grounds and be taken in by the sweeping lawn, rock formations and rolling fields that surround the house. Spend a lovely evening at the stone fire pit, roasting marshmallows and watching the fireflies. Make sure the kids visit our fairy house, a favorite of the Lachland children. Perhaps the best feature of the house is the vista of the surrounding mountains and the Ashokan Reservoir. The open porch and raised stone patio allow for breathtaking views, and many of the bedrooms have excellent views also. Large picture windows in the living room, dining room, and kitchen ensure that you'll have great scenery inside the house too. A unique getaway in a truly beautiful area. Adorable 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom guest house, originally a writer's cottage built in the 1920's, also available during May-Nov, PLEASE NOTE: additional fees apply for guest house. Main house sleeps 13, guest house sleeps 6. Please contact owners with any questions, we are more than happy to assist you. We do allow large events, please inquire.
