Relaxing, beautiful location
My family had a lovely, restful vacation here. The lake is gorgeous, the local farms provided amazing produce and meat for superb grilling and the comfortable cottage rounded out the amazing time we had.
Local neighbors were friendly and welcoming, providing helpful hints on local attractions. Susan also provided great ideas for fun things to do.
I'm a cyclist, and the gravel back roads provided hours of scenic backdrop that never got old. The local MTBing was also a treat.
We took away some very fond memories and will miss our time at Copake Lake.
Great weekend on the lake
We had a great time at this vacation house. There were 6 adults and a 3-year old in our party, and everyone enjoyed big deck, huge backyard lawn and a small private beach, which was only 2 minute walk from the house. Owners sent us a guide that outlined every little detail about the house, so we didn't have any problems finding, opening or turning things on/off. The weather was gorgeous, and it wasn't too hot, which I think might potentially be an issue during peak heat in July-August, as the place only has AC installed in the living room. The house is very well maintained and it had everything we needed. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation in Berkshires.
The house was charming and lovely! It felt like I was visiting my grandfather's house for a family reunion, very warm and welcoming. I did however think, from the description of the property and the pictures that the lake was butted up to the back of the property of the house, but it wasn't a long walk to the lake anyway. There was an added bonus of having our own private dock to use as well as the HOA private beach. There was a place to rent a boat, reasonably priced too and the fishing was great! The neighbors were all nice... one was a little meddlesome, but all were friendly. I would definitely return to this house. We ventured to the Taghanic (spelling?) falls and did a nice hike followed by a dip in the frigid water...it was beautiful! Finally, our dog came with us too, he was only allowed to swim in the lake by where the private dock was and there were a lot of other dogs around, all were friendly, but roamed around without leashes. They wandered onto the property that we were staying at without their owners, who I'm sure didn't realize that the dogs were leaving presents without their knowledge. All, in all, it was a good experience.
