About the Property

Idyllic lakeside country estate to unwind, swim, fish, kayak, bike and hike!

Our picturesque 100 year old Victorian country home is located in the Hudson Valley all on 11 acres, with a breathtaking view of the 125 acre Stissing Lake at the base of Stissing Mountain.

The property includes a main house with 6 bedrooms, 4 1/2 baths plus an additional 2 bedroom 2 bath guest cottage (available separately).

This is our home not a fancy relais chateaux property. It is not a 'rental property', but it is an extremely comfortable country home decorated with antiques we've collected over the years, a fabulous restaurant kitchen and a spectacular one of a kind lake/mountain view.

Stissing Lake House has personality with an incredibly stocked kitchen for serious cooks. We use the main house many weekends in the summer and occasionally rent it out to guests. We will also consider a swap for a like property in the islands.

The 2 bedroom, 2 bath guest cottage is also available as an additional rental - it is separate located down the driveway. Please see Property #3660393. Guest cottage has hardwood floors, country kitchen, 2 baths (one with claw foot tub). One bedroom has a double bed, the other bedroom has twin single beds.


Rental package includes use of 3 kayaks, a canoe, fishing rods, swimming platform, dock, 5 adult bikes, 2 children's bikes, wonderful swing set.

Main house: 6 Bedrooms, 4.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps maximum of 14;
Cottage available separately: 2 bedrooms, sleeps 4
