About Beau or John Kuhn

We are a family of 5 and use this property as a weekend and vacation home.

Beau or John Kuhn purchased this chateau / country house in 2002

Why Beau or John Kuhn chose Copake

Our families started visiting this area in 1980 and we have enjoyed its beauty, activities and culture through the years. After spending a summer renting in nearby Hillsdale with another family, we loved the area so much that we decided to look for a place to buy. When we saw the views from this property, we knew we had found the perfect location. Since then our family has grown and the house has expanded. We spend every weekend and every school day off at the property enjoying all the nearby activities and always inviting others to join in our adventures. We have decided to offer our house for rent so others can enjoy this wonderful place.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This is the perfect place to experience a country spring, summer or fall. The house is designed to easily accommodate 2 or more families with a the pool (seasonal) and lot's of outdoor and cultural activities near by.

Great, comfortable house and grounds in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our week on the property. The house is spacious and allows people to spread out and have their own space or get together as desired. The screened in porch is a particularly nice feature. We had beautiful warm and sunny weather so the pool was especially enjoyable. The setting and views are hard to beat!

An unforgettable weekend at this AMAZING and beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Our group of friends from NYC (12 people) decided to rent this house for a getaway weekend in September. Not only was the house immaculate & beautifully renovated, we had more than enough room and it provided everything we could possibly need. The owner John, was truly a pleasure to coordinate with, and he was more than accommodating - he promptly responded any of our questions concerning the house, and was extremely thorough in making sure we enjoyed our stay (not to mention, an absolute to delight to speak with on the phone). Thank you so so much for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful home - the pool, the views, and the indoor/outdoor spaces made for an absolutely unforgettable weekend - we would come back in a heart beat!!

Beautiful home, wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks this summer and loved every minute of it. The house is beautiful, well maintained, fully stocked and spacious. The grounds are gorgeous. The screened in porch was our favorite place to sit the salt water pool with mountain views couldn't have been nicer. Plenty of games and toys for the kids. John was an incredible helpful and responsive host. We hope to be back soon! Highly recommend.
