Why John and Regina chose Hudson Valley

We love the lake the mountains and the outdoors...I have rebuilt this house to recreate that old camp feel. one tv no cable. only movies for you and the kids.. no dishwasher old school everyone chips in. The main area is set up with a great open feel, so everyone can be together.

What makes this house unique

Usually there is no one on the lake during the week even in the summer, very quiet.... winters are outstanding.. skiing /snowboarding close enough to totally enjoy. sled down the side yard at night.

Great house with loads of character

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in the winter (8 adults and a 21 month old). The place was super easy to find and was right by the lake. It had lots of charm and character and everything was super clean. John was very responsive, even at night. It is only a 30 minute drive to skiing, and we had loads of fun! It was a perfect distance for us, from both Boston and New York, and I am sure it is going to be lovely in summer, with the lake so near by. If you are staying with kids, they may need to be supervised.

Wonderful family get-together in a wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Kinderhook house for a family reunion over a three-day weekend this October. There were nine of us total – seven adults and two children – and we had a wonderful time. There was plenty of space in the house, with more than enough rooms and beds for everyone to feel comfortable. We cooked together, carved pumpkins, and went kayaking on the lake. We even had a campfire by the shore one night. The area was quiet and peaceful, and a nice place to go on a walk around the lake with the kids. There are also plenty of activities to do nearby, like hiking and apple picking at nearby farms. Lots of opportunities for bird watching as well – we saw two bald eagles!!

The house itself was clean and cozy, with rustic decorations giving it a lived-in, homey feeling. Although it took a while to kick in, you can't beat the toasty floor heating! Our feet had no complaints. The kitchen is generally well-equipped; that said, it would have been nice if there was a greater variety of pot sizes available, as it would have made cooking meals for such a large group of people less complicated and more convenient.

We enjoyed spending time here! We heartily recommend it to others, and hope to be back ourselves next year.

A splendid place

  • 5 of 5

We've been here for 2 months and, sadly, it's time to go home. We've had an amazing time in this wonderful house. It's large, comfortable, and airy. The photos don't do the house justice. There are paddle boards and kayaks for getting out on the lake, two (!) decks with comfortable furniture, and grassy areas if you prefer. The towels are fluffy, the kitchen well stocked, there are enough serving bowls and platters for a crowd. There isn't cable (I think that a plus) but there is wi-fi for computer access, a DVD player, and a deluxe Scrabble set. Close enough to Chatham, Hudson, and the Berkshires to enjoy those attractions. We had several very hot days but the AC in the bedrooms was fine. We look forward to returning.

Perfectly perfect

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the best value of all Kinderhook lake rentals. House is perfect and on quiet cove of lake. All amenities provided for. Great for families and groups. We are "Senior" women that do a kayak week each year. The two bathrooms are a real plus. This was probably the best property yet. Don't be fooled by the front view. There is tons of space. Also Valatie a nd Hudson area is great and also close to the Berkshires.

To hot without A/C

  • 2 of 5

We rented the house for 3 nights. Unfortunately we left after two.

The house itself was very nice, nicely decorated, clean sheets and towels.

However there was no A/C in the living area of the house, only the bedrooms had units in the windows.

There was no WiFi and no cable.

Was not pleasant
