About Sendaf

Our family purchased this property shortly after visiting a close friend who lives in the area. It was one of the first properties we saw, and we kept on coming back to it. You will feel the same way!

Sendaf purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

Why Sendaf chose Copake

The property has a Estate feeling and while being within a 5-minute drive to downtown Hillsdale, nearby farms and cultural attractions, it is one of the few properties in the area abutting the State Park with direct access to trails from its own backyard while sitting on the top of the hill with Northern views of the Berkshires and Western views of the Catskills. It is the perfect place to vacation all-year-round.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Newly furnished with contemporary and transitional furniture. Fresh/new linens provided.

Extremely comfortable house ideal for relaxation and/or entertainment. Conveniently located to nearby Catamount Ski and Adventure Area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family and I stayed at this house for a weekend. And the pictures on this website do not do the house any justice. The house is beautiful. The views are exceptional. The owner was very helpful with all my questions and concerns as was the caretaker. She was there to greet us at the door and showed us around the house. I will definitely be returning again with my family.

Everything , from my arrival until departure, was very nice. The hosts are caring, accomodating, informative and very responsive. The house is spacious and very comfortable.

The proximity to Bash Bish Falls was invaluable addition.

Gorgeous and comfortable home in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent about 5 days with our family in this beautiful house. It is an extremely well kept, clean and comfortable house with all the amenities one could need. The kitchen and bathrooms were very well stocked and kept. It was very pleasant and easy to communicate with the owners who were able to answer all our questions promptly. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the heated swimming pool and the grounds on the property. This was a great treat and we hope to return soon.

Fantastic house for Families- Memorial day weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 families staying in this house.. its very modern, clean and well maintained. It had all the amenities for a large group. We loved the viking stove and the outdoor grill! Lots of open spaces for the kids to play...the pool is heated, unfortunately the weather was a bit cooler and we couldn't enjoy it that much. The owner is great at responding and this makes the entire process very smooth.

If you are looking for a clean modern home...go for it. A fantastic time will be had by all! Looking fwd to booking this beautiful home again...

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house - close to Catamount, Butternut and Bash Bish Falls State park. We visited all 3 places when we stayed for a long weekend along with another family. Even with 10 of us in the house it still felt big -- great layout, large kitchen, living room, family room, etc. The views from this property (esp the master bedroom) are also amazing.

Gorgeous Home, plenty of open areas to relax, modern amenities

  • 5 of 5

This home was very beautiful. We had about 7 adults enjoying a fall weekend away, and I'm actually thinking about booking again for a summer trip! I love the house layout - there is a living room area near the kitchen (which I love because everyone ends up in the kitchen) and also another grand living room on the other side of the home, both offering fireplaces and cozy places to relax. The house was updated and modern, and had any amenity and pantry staple that we needed which was great (I forgot sugar!). The view of the mountains is beautiful and you are a short hike away form Bish Bash falls. We visited Great Barrington and Sheffield - both about 15-20 minutes away so a great central location. The house was very clean, the owner was attentive and I'd certainly recommend!
