Description

The Space

Tranquility and relaxation await at this beautiful lake front home located just an hour from NYC. This is the perfect escape for those who want to feel like they are a world away, but may not want to drive for hours to get there.

Amazing views abound in this beautiful home. The front sun room is a favorite with it's huge windows that show stunning views of the lake. The house has 2 queen bedrooms. The large living room is the perfect place to relax with comfortable furnishings, a large flatscreen & entertainment system, and a lovely stone fireplace. The dining area has a large wooden table that can easily sit 6. The full kitchen has all needed gadgets and appliances, and the expansive deck has relaxing patio furniture and a deluxe BBQ. There also is dining area in a beautiful screened in porch which has cathedral ceilings and skylights.

The house has all the comforts of home including central air, a remodeled bathroom with spa-like shower, fully stocked kitchen and likely anything else you will need!

There is plenty to do both on and off the property. The lake offers fun and relaxation. Sit and relax in one of the adirondack chairs on your private lakefront property, or cool off in the fresh water. Only non-motorizred boats are allowed so you will get to enjoy total peace and quiet. The lake is perfect for swimming, fishing, or rowing about!

If hiking is your thing, the appalachian trail runs right through the neighborhood. Get out and explore the beautiful woodlands and see a huge variety of birds and plant life. Also, history surrounds you as the oldest road in the county runs through the neighborhood. Unpaved to secure it's historical value, you can see rock walls confederate solders had built, and the "dancing rock" indians used as a gathering place. The surrounding area also offers plenty of great restaurants, farmer's markets, and cute towns for day get-aways including Cold Spring (15m away) and West Point (just across the river). For the Autumn season there are also a plethora of pumpkin and apple farms as well as an pumpkin exhibit called "THE BLAZE" just 15 minutes away!

This is a very special place and a perfect retreat for the whole family. Come unwind and enjoy the beautiful natural setting in this wonderful lake house. A true vacation.

Guests have access to a beautiful deck with outdoor furniture, lake access from our property, miles and miles of natural wooded surroundings, and a community park (all community park rules must be abided by) with boats, swimming, tennis and more!

Interaction with Guests

I am happy to have as much or as little interaction as guests prefer! I'm always just a phone call (or text) away for questions or if anything is needed!

The Neighborhood

A charming lake community with natural beauty at every turn.

Getting Around

We are about 10-15m (driving) from Garrison and Peekskill train stations (Metro North) and the same distance to shopping centers, food stores, etc. A car is necessary unless you come with all you need for a weekend-- then you can cab it from the station and enjoy being off the beaten path! Please see our guidebook for full details!

We prefer parties of 4 or smaller, but can accommodate 6 when small children are included.

This is a small private community, so we ask only respectful guests inquire.

3 night minimums may be imposed during high season.

I am a NY girl and my other half is a native New Zealander. We love the outdoors, travel, good food, and a good dose of relaxation.

Our properties are special places that we love to be at, and try to get to as often as possible. That being said, we also are happy when others share in the beauty of them and enjoy all they have to offer.

I'd say relaxation, serenity and comfort are on the top of our list when it comes to a perfect vacation, so we try to give that to our guests as well. I also really appreciate aesthetics-- tastefully decorated yet comfortable surroundings, and a clean space-- and make sure our properties exude these, yet are still warm and comfortable.

We love the big city, but also always up for exploring nature, or grabbing hold of a new adventure in another part of the world.
