Overview

Copake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

Domino Magazine featured this completely transformed lake cottage in its October 2008 Renovator's Notebook. Stylishly furnished and tastefully designed, this sweet and functional dwelling is nestled into a lovely cove of Copake Lake in Columbia County NY, just two hours north of New York City. Copake Lake is a water shed lake, all-purpose water attraction, both in summer and winter.

Short drives to plentiful points of interest: Bash Bish State Park, Harlem Valley Rail Trail,Catamount Ski/Catamount Adventure Park, Hudson NY Antiques, Hancock Shaker Village, Norman Rockwell Museum, Great Barrington Mass., Tanglewood, and Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, to name a few. Fine Dining includes The Greens at Copake Country Club (On Copake Lake), The Swiss Hutte in Hillsdale NY, and The Old Mill in Egremont, Mass.

Winter activities include some of the most pristine ice skating in the Northeast, cross country skiing, alpine skiing and snowboarding at Catamount Ski Area (12 minutes) and Butternut Ski Area (30 minutes), snowmobiling, and innertubing/sledding on the scenic 18 hole Copake Country Club Golf Course, which is situated right on Copake Lake. An outdoor fire pit provides year round pleasure.

About Denise Chickery

I have lived on Copake Lake for over fifteen years, and have a deep appreciation for its unique beauty. Several years ago, I and three partners formed a company called ABCD homes, and started buying ill-used properties and restoring them to their appropriate charm and style. We are architects, builders, designers, and residents who care a great deal about preserving the history and health of the lake and its surroundings so that others may experience what we have.

Denise Chickery purchased this cabin in 2007

Great weekend stay!

  • 5 of 5

A group of old friends/new dad's decided to get away for a weekend to reconnect with each other. This place exceeded our expectations!

Denise was an incredible host - made sure that we had everything we needed and, when we didn't, resolved it. She made everything easy.

We are a pretty low maintenance group, so as long as we had a fire pit, grill and water, we were happy. The proximity to the water, cleanliness of the place and added bonus of having access to the motor boat made the experience even better.

Of note, if you're looking for seclusion, the house if located right beside one of the (small) boat launches for the lake. We saw some people coming in and out of the launch/around the back yard (which is the lakefront), but that didn't bother us. Everyone was very friendly.

If we can arrange our schedules, this gem will become our yearly meetup place.

Thanks Denise!

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great place!! The house was awesome!! We skated on the lake, went sledding, and then skied at catamount the next day which was 10 minutes away! The house was stocked with everything we could have needed and we walked into the house with a fire ready to go with the strike of a match and plenty of fire wood to keep it going! I almost don't want to leave a good review in fear that someone else might be staying here next time we try to book :) . Everyone in our group loved it and we cannot wait to stay here again!!!

Family of four from Philadelphia area

  • 3 of 5

The owner was gracious and responsive. came right over if we needed anything. We enjoyed the lake and the boats that came with the property. The screened in porch was great for dinners, but none of the furniture on it was very comfortable. It would have been nice to take a nap out there. We had a good time at the Country Club playing golf and Marina for a couple meals. We wished that the water access was more private and quiet. The photos did not exactly reflect the rental's appearance, some furniture had been switched out, there were many more collectables around and animal heads ( not my favorite) and the some of the outside photos were taken in the winter when the lake is probably really quiet.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments and suggestions. I will be adding a picture of the lake front next summer so it does show the activity better. I will also update the pictures on the website. We are glad you enjoyed the boats, the water and our lake community!

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing time at Copake Lake while staying at this home. We enjoyed everything the home had to offer – the décor, the BBQ, motorboat, kayak, canoe, fire pit for roasting smores and of course the beautiful lake which is right in front of house. We also took advantage of the private porch on the lake by eating practically every meal there. Such a great way to enjoy the view of the lake while spending time with family. The lake is clear and was warm while we were there which allowed us to go swimming quite a bit. We even took some waterski and wakeboarding lessons from the local instructors right across the lake. We had such a good stay that we plan to come again in the winter to ski at Catamount and Butternut nearby.

If you’re looking for a fun and relaxing vacation, I would highly recommend renting this home.
