Property description

Quaint cozy cabin located in the Hudson Valley, approx 90 miles north of NYC on our 11 acre property on a 125 acre lake at the base of Stissing Mountain. We use the main house many weekends in the summer but the guest cabin (see photo located down the driveway from the main house) is available rent from early May through Halloween.

Stissing Lake Guest Cabin is a very rustic country cabin with 2 bedroom, 2 baths (one with clawfoot tub), basic kitchen (with pots, pans, dishes), hardwood floors throughout and vintage country furnishings. One bedroom has a antique spindle double bed, the other bedroom has twin and double beds.

We have a couple kayaks, a canoe, fishing rods, swimming platform, dock, a couple adult and children's bikes, wooden swingset, all part of the rental package shared with the main house.

Stissing Lake is a gorgeous swimming lake. You can swim from the dock into the open waters to the swimming platform which is shared with the main house.

Since we do have vegetable garden, flower garden and a dozen chickens from time to time, we have learned from past experience it might not be for those guests with severe allergies. The cabin does not have heat and is closed during winter.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I run a food magazine and have 2 children.

Why the Owner Chose Pine Plains, NY, USA:
20 years ago we looked in the country for a place to call our own. We married here and raised our two children. Stissing Lake offers an ideal place to relax, lots of room to roam and indulge in the magic of nature. Enjoy spring blossoms, summer fun in the water or the gorgeous fall foliage. Hike Stissing Mountain, picnic on the lawn, kayak or paddle boat around Stissing Lake, swim without the distraction of motorized boats, fish for Bass, watch the swans and turtles on the lake or birdwatch at Thomson Nature Preserve.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Stissing Lake is our little slice of heaven.
