Neil and I live in Newton, Massachusetts and have two children ages 22 and 24. I am a psychotherapist and have a private practice and Neil works as a manager in a medical web site development company. We love spending week ends with our children at Copake Lake!
We inherited this property from Neil's mother and father. They would spend 6 months at Copake Lake and 6 months in Del Ray Beach, Florida. Once they became too old to travel back and forth, Neil and I assumed ownership. We have many wonderful memories of spending time at Copake Lake with our young children and their grandparents. Many many scrabble games have been played at the dining room table!
We love this home because it has a very open feel to it - the kitchen, dining room and living are like one large room yet with separate areas. It is ideal for being able to cook a meal while talking with friends and family. Another thing we love is that we all seem to sleep so incredibly well when we are here and we don't know whether it is the country air or the very comfortable beds, but we all delight in having great night sleeps! Another major plus of the house is the very spacious deck. During the summer, we eat most of our meals outside and it is so easy and convenient. The sunsets are exquisite!!
