In the back yard, you will find the a patio area with a fire pit - perfect for roasting marshmallows! There is an enclosed outdoor shower on the ground level underneath the deck. The steps to the boat house are many and gated for safety. There is a large open sundeck on the top of the boat house and small covered area by the boat slip underneath. Bring your boat, kayak, or favorite floats and enjoy the cool water!

The home has central air conditioning with a fan in each bedroom for those of us who love to sleep to the sound of a fan - our entire family enjoy these including the little ones!

Why Laura and Dutch chose Boydton

We love the quiet location and the deep water for boating or just jumping off the dock! The sunsets over the water are absolutely amazing. We enjoy watching the wildlife and enjoying the quiet serenity. Our family loves to tether floats and tubes to the dock and just float!

There is a public boat ramp across the waterway from this property and quick to access just across the bridge - you can launch your boat and arrive at our boat house before someone driving can get back to the house. Watching the boaters can be quite entertaining and the fishing in this area is suppose to be pretty good - however, we haven't had much time for it yet! We hope you will enjoy our home as much as we enjoy it!

GREAT GETAWAY - Beautiful Home - Super Location -FUN STAY!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing, and fun time with our extended family at this property. Plenty of room for the whole gang. Clean, comfortable, well maintained, home away from home. Lots to do to satisfy almost anyone. Boathouse/dock great for boats of 25' or less with convenient launch right across the river (be prepared to climb though, almost 75 stairs up from dock to the house.) Fully screened porch was great for dining. Fire pit with plenty of wood for Smores. Big kitchen table for family activities. Extra fridge in the laundry room really helped. If you are a movie buff, multiple albums of DVDs.

The only areas for improvement are water pressure is low (don't flush when someone is showering), on the hottest days (95+) upstairs A/C can't keep up (but the many fans helped), WiFi limited to a weekly allotment (should be an unlimited plan), linens for the king bed would help (had to buy special just for the trip), the huge fallen tree protruding in the water by the dock entrance forces and angular entry/exit for boats drawing 3' or more, and no outside switch for dock lights.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND- We were really impressed and would rent again in a heartbeat. Loved it- Thanks Again!

Absolutely Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house and lake area we found on our family vacation. The house was absolutely beautiful. It was equipped for everything we could imagine or ask for. The lake was refreshing and easily accessible. We brought our boat and used it every single day. Even the one day that we had some rain, the screened porch made it a very relaxing day.I would definitely consider this one again. We loved it!

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

The room is very large and private, and your access is through an outside door, not through the house. The owners take great care of the property and many small touches are evident that make your stay enjoyable. The property is located very close to the bridge, so it is easily accessible to Bard College and Rheinhold which are on the east side of the river.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The location was very convenient and you literally drive your boat across the lake from the boat ramp to the house. The house is beautiful and set up perfectly for both adults and children giving everyone plenty of space. The location on the lake is beautiful and very quiet without any houses on the opposite side of the lake. The kitchen is equipped with everything you can possibly need and the beds and furniture were very comfortable. Everyone knows the bugs come out at night so the screen porch was a big plus. I also loved the outdoor shower. I would definitely return!

Relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, spacious home...well furnished and equipped for a great vacation. Great sleeping arrangements as well as ample seating for meals. Relaxing view from the back screened porch. The only negative to this house is that the boat dock is very difficult to get in and out of due to large fallen trees in the water. Also, it would be nice if the boat dock was equipped with bumper guards to protect the sides of the boat when docked.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review! So sorry you had trouble getting into the boat dock, we have never had any problems. Great idea with the bumper guards! We have always just used the bumpers on our boat. However, we agree that the bumper guards would be a nice addition. So glad you and your family had a relaxing vacation. Many thanks for choosing our home!
