About Jenifer Crosby
We are a family that has a vacation home 5 minutes from this home. We have been in the area for 7 years and love it. We hope you do as well. We can share all the fun places to visit when you are here!
Jenifer Crosby purchased this House in 2011
Why Jenifer Crosby chose Copake
We have enjoyed it ourselves and found the drama of the space very appealing!
What makes this House unique
We love the views, light and the beauty of the house. The fireplace is very special. The property itself is large and gorgeously landscaped. We even have a vegetable garden which during the season will have vegetables and herbs for the picking! Tennis court along with a basketball hoop

Serene waterfront location and spacious house
This property is perfect for a getaway with friends or family any time of year! Jennifer was very pleasant to work with and gave fantastic suggestions in the area. Between tennis, fire pit, walks / hikes, and the cozy and spacious space, I highly recommend staying here. We most certainly will be back.
Enjoyed the lake Home very much. It was perfect for our Family preparing for the wedding. Relaxing and beautiful!!
Gorgeous views and cozy but spacious house
Loved every second of this place -- the deck overlooking the lake, the fireplace, the spacious bedrooms -- everything. It's perfect for a large family or group of friends. The ability to use the boat to get on the lake is a huge plus. Clean and fantastic -- look forward to returning!
This is a home and guest house that has been designed and built to be comfortable and first class. My family had a great time keeping busy using the tennis court, boats and waterfront, terraces BBQ and fire pit. The property manager was very attentive and it was in very good condition.
Like previous renters, our only complaint was the muddy, heavily weed covered shore area but we soon learned that, using one of the 4 boats to reach the nearby float in the clear part of the pond was easy
Stunning, spacious property
The setting of this home is just gorgeous- it sits on a shady, private lot right on Upper Rhoda Pond. There is a large yard for running around and a dock with enough boats for a big group. The house itself is very large and has lots of bathrooms- a must for a multi-family trip! The guest house in particular is obviously new and stunning.
I'm giving the home 4 stars is because the two outdoor showers were not working (one was completely off, and one spurted water horizontally from a pipe). The manager tried to get a plumber in there before our stay but was not able to. Also, we were given the incorrect house code so had some trouble getting in. Lastly; we had the air conditioning on at night, but the house never fully cooled down- it's very large, so that may be a factor! Just good to know if you're very sensitive to heat. In general, our stay was absolutely wonderful!
Beautiful, peaceful retreat
My party of 10 family members stayed here during my wedding weekend, and it was really great. It took us a bit to figure out the climate control, but we stoked a fire on the first night to stave off the cold. The view onto the water is gorgeous, rooms are spacious, and my husband and I used the guest house as a mini honeymoon suite! Our only complaint was that ants were crawling around the kitchen after two days.
