This location was perfect in every way. The photos only touched the surface. The few days went far to fast. Heaven can wait had all the little touches just sit & watch the lake do it's bit. If the boat belongs to you John(Only down side no keys shame ) but on a serious note everything was at hand. Comfortable property well maintained & we could not fault it credit to you John thanking you for the opportunity to stay in you home & would recommend this to anybody.

Comfortable cottage on a lake; close to quaint towns and attractions

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is part of a small vacation community on Kinderhook Lake. The homes are somewhat close together but the neighbors are friendly and helpful. There was not a lot of power boat activity on the lake so it was quiet. The front deck is a very nice feature of this rental as it looks out on the water. The kitchen is updated and well-stocked with utensils, pans, etc. The location is great for access to smalls towns in the Catskills and southern Adirondacks. Check out the towns of Valatie, Chatham (there is a good brewery there), and Woodstock, which is a bit further south off the NY State Thruway.

Flawless and well kept lakefront cottage!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I traveled from far distances to continue a 20 year annual fishing tradition. This cottage was the perfect location, size and temperament for such a trip. John ensured the cottage was in pristine condition and that all our needs were met. We had the use of a few fishing poles and two kayaks which were a nice touch. All in all a wonderful experience that we plan on doing again at john's (if available) next year.

Nice cottage on peaceful, beautiful lake.

  • 5 of 5

Location, location, location. This is it. If you are looking to watch the sunset on the back deck at a scenic lake, this is for you. Secluded lake, but still only 25 minutes from Albany. Valatie village is not 10 minutes away and a great place for a walk, shopping, and lunch.

Owner John was helpful with renting and answering questions along the way. Would definitely rent this property again.

Perfect cottage on the lake!!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a 4 day weekend here in July. This place is exactly what we were looking for. Quiet and peaceful. Kayaking on the lake was alot of fun. Weber grill was perfect for cooking instead of eating out. We would definitely stay here again.
