A TRANQUIL LAKE HOUSE RETREAT AWAITS

Middleburgh House Rental Photos and Description

Modern Country Home, Relaxing Sunroom, Sprawling Lawns, Private Dock

Experience the serenity and beauty of the mountains from our country lake house. The house sits on a hilltop, 300 feet from the shoreline, on just shy of 1.5 acres of beautiful lawns. Walk down to the lake and enjoy your own private dock. Rental includes use of kayak, row boat (perfect for fishing) and canoe. Our lake front boasts a large dock, with hand railed stairs leading into the water. The lake has a gradual decline from the shore and a gravel bottom (no swimming in weeds here). Enjoy water sports or just sit in one of our comfortable Adirondack chairs, read a book or take in the beautiful scenery. The afternoon is a wonderful time to go for a swim as the dock is drenched in the warmth of the sun. And after your late afternoon swim, enjoy the beautiful sunset.

The home features open concept living: a living room with wood burning fireplace, adjacent dining room with table (seats six comfortably!), open kitchen boasting large counter with stools - a popular place to sit and speak with the cook! Just off the dining room is a 3-season room with large windows overlooking the back of the property. To round out the first floor there is a bedroom (queen size bed), a three piece bathroom and a laundry room. The second floor offer two bedrooms (a total of three twin beds), a full bath and a loft with a love seat - perfect for reading or watching a video.

Drive a short distance to enjoy Americana - small, quaint, welcoming towns and farms selling locally grown produce. Explore a cave at Howe Caverns or the Iroquois Museum in Cobleskill. For a more physically active experience drive to the Windham Adventure Park. There is much to see and do in the area - we will help guide you, so you can get the most out of your stay.

September and October are the time to enjoy warm days, cool nights and beautiful foliage in the mountains. Go pumpkin or apple picking in the Schoharie Valley. On cool days you can still enjoy the warmth of the sun in our backyard - the ridge we are on protects you from the wind. And in the evening enjoy the warmth of the fire at our outdoor firepit.

RECONNECT WITH THE FAMILY AND LAUGH TIL IT HURTS!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I took my nephew and niece, 15 and 16 respectively, to this well appointed and lovely lake house for a week. Upon our arrival, we were horrified to discover there was no cell service and no internet access. Help! What would we do to amuse these two teens who are constantly bickering with each other? The answer: leave them alone! It took only 30 minutes for them to adjust and it was a joy to watch my nephew push his sister on the swing out back. My niece fashioned a bow an arrow by finding sticks in the woods out back and a piece of string. They even made a badminton set out of nearby materials. SHOCKING. From there, we decided to walk across the street to the crystal clear lake and do some swimming and fishing. Good luck was had in the fishing arena but not so much for "Uncle Glenn". He lost an oar in the middle of the lake and had to resort to a canoe type maneuver to get back to shore. This provided many laughs, even for Uncle Glenn. Nearby,hiking trails lead to a magnificent waterfall. One evening, we took a 30 minute ride to a go cart race track where the kids had fun knocking each other around. And the best discovery was the local ice cream stand with a line 25 deep but no one seemed to care. I can only imagine it was because 3 scoops of rich creamy ice cream cost about $2.50! I cannot emphasize our shock when we realized that teens can carry on conversations, cook for themselves, clean the dishes and giggle until their bellies hurt when they are not glued to their cell phones and tv. It's been a year but we are all still talking about our wonderful week at the tranquil lake house retreat on Crystal Lake. Don't hesitate to visit this serene property. Elizabeth and Brian ensured we had all the information needed to make this vacation spectacular.
