Canaan House Rental Photos and Description

Available Columbus Day Wknd - 3 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 8

This picturesque home is in Canaan, NY and overlooks beautiful Queechy Lake. The main floor features a living room with a stone fireplace and a separate dinning area; large glass windows/doors across both areas look out at the lake. A grand wrap around screened porch includes seating and dinning areas with full view of the lake. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a den with a double-size sleep sofa, and a half bath on the ground floor. The second floor has three bedrooms (one with a private bath), and a second full bath. There are two twin beds, one double and one queen bed. The circa 1900 “cottage” sits on 4.5 acres that rise up from the lake. The main rooms downstairs are fully carpeted and upstairs rooms have hardwood floors. There are period beaded board walls throughout. Medium sized (100 acre), spring fed Queechy Lake boasts great fishing, and is excellent for swimming and small boating. A nearby community beach has a lifeguard. Visit our website. The link is located below.

Recreational Activities - Hiking, Golf, Tennis: Hike at nearby Beartown State Forest or Pleasant Valley Wildlife Sanctuary, Mount Graylock, Bish Bash Falls, or on the Appalachian and Mohawk Trails. There are public golf courses in the area and two driving ranges. There are also two community tennis courts in the town of Canaan.

Activities for the Younger at Heart: Miniature golf is locally available. In the summer, local ski areas offer an alpine slide, mountain bike trails, water slides, Go Kart tracks and other activities. Younger children can enroll in the Canaan summer recreation program and swimming lessons at the town beach, or children’s programs at the Spencertown Academy or the Wildlife Sanctuary.

Alpine and Cross Country Skiing: Ski at nearby Jiminy Peak and Bosquet, or Catamount and Butternut. Or make a day trip to Stratton, Mount Snow or Haystack. Many cross country ski areas are in the region, some less than 10 miles away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ann & Tony, Happy New Year! I just wanted to thank you for everything. We had a great time at the cottage and were impressed at the amenities in the house. As we hoped to relax a bit, we brought some wine and food and cooked feast after feast. We were surprised to find the kitchen so fully stocked. Thanks again. My Best,S. Gandhi

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of three adults and two VERY active one year old boys. The layout of the house made it very easy to manage the boys and there weren't too many things for them to get into--very important when traveling with toddlers.

The home is tastefully, yet comfortably decorated. Bedrooms and bathrooms are lovely and beds are very comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped and easy to work in.

The owners are very lovely hosts and a pleasure to work with--we even had the opportunity to meet in person. They have lots of suggestions for things to do in the area--and there is plenty to do! Rainy weather prevented us from exploring the woods behind the house, but not the family of deer that sauntered through one morning!

Location is wonderful, easy to get to, and situated so that many of the small Berkshire towns are within reach.

Definitely a great place to visit--wonderful for families--and we look forward to returning!!!!

Our family has stayed here twice in the Fall and loved it, grandparents and children alike. Beautiful views across the lake all day long, moonrise at night. Every need anticipated and more in the kitchen. Beds are really comfortable and screened in porch is a delight. We love this house. Canoe on the lake and pick apples down the road. Visit the Shaker community less than an hour away and eat like crazy everywhere you go. The owners are wonderful and always helpful with suggestions. Thanks for this home away from home.
