About the owner: We're a city family with 2 kids and a dog, and we love to be outside doing fun things together!
Why the Owner Chose Copake Lake, NY, USA:
We fell in love with our house at first site! It's dramatic post & beam construction appeals to our modern organic aesthetic, but it's the seamless integration of the outdoor surroundings that make it really special. The view of the lake & surrounding woods is truly magnificent! The countryside is spectacular. We love the rolling hills of the Taconic Mountains, the beautiful farmland, and all the wonderful outdoor activities the area has to offer. The ease of getting there is fantastic -there's hardly ever any traffic on the Taconic - making the 2 hour trip a breeze!
