WHAT'S NOT TO LIKE.???
If you want to get out of the" RAT RACE" ....if your body and soul demands a well needed dose of tranquility, delight, wonderment, then this surely must be the place to get it!!
Tucked deep in the woods, with a background of tall green trees, this home sits nestled above a hill with suttle glimpses of a lake below if you try and peek through the trees.
This home is very comfortable and reflects the character and lives of real people. Meaning that you dont walk in and see an empty sterile enviroment. Instead you are greeted delightfully at every turn with cozy furniture, whimsical art and wonderful accessories.
Large picture windows in the living room allow you to enjoy the magical show of nature presented right in front of your eyes.
Birds busily gather at the feeders outside the windows, the squirrels clambering up the trees.
The occasional deer in the evening. All presented for your enjoyment.
A large deck in the back with furniture and a grill further allows you to kick back and enjoy your favorite beverage while drinking in the scenery. If the bugs in the woods get you then get up and move into the screened porch right next to the deck for a continued great view and experience.
Now for some practical matters. Do not let your GPS ruin your experience of getting here. FOLLOW MY LEAD . The GPS ( Garmin) almost drove us crazy! Take Route 9 to Traverse Corners Rd (near Garrison Country Club) follow until you get to Old Albany Post Rd turn right and follow around the lake (you will see Lake on left) keep going and you will turn left on Lake Celeste just follow the house numbers...
The lake is great. It has a dock to fish from as well as canoe and rowboat. No eating fish, but the large mouth bass are plentiful for the sport! My husband loved relaxing there, while I sat back with a glass of wine and watched him
The hike down to the lake was great but coming back up reminded me that I was out of shape! No matter, by the 3rd day I was good to go, but if you don't have the time or inclination just get in the car and drive there!
Don't miss the Garrison Landing where you can see right across the Hudson River to West Point. AWSOME! You are also pretty darn close to Bear Mountain. Not to be missed with a great lake,picnic areas, great easy hiking, and a fun zoo area.
Cold Spring down Rte 311 is filled with charm, antique stores, and great pizza. Follow yelp advise it's pretty accurate.
