About Jenifer Crosby
We are a family from New York City who bought our own lakefront vacation home in 2006 which is just five minutes from these houses. We love the area and felt so strongly others would as well. Whenever we had more guests, we wanted them to enjoy the lakefront living we so love and we tried to rent lovely homes. We found there weren't too many around, so when we found great homes on the lake to purchase, we jumped on the opportunity. We felt others would enjoy a vacation on the lake in lovely country homes. The tennis courts are such a great bonus as we do love to play tennis in the summer. Our family comes up to our lakefront house nearly all year round on the weekends and if you stay in our rental homes, we would love to meet you!

Why Jenifer Crosby chose Copake
These properties are on a beautiful pristine lake. The houses enjoy privacy as the surrounding land is large and wooded. There are two tennis courts, docks to the lake, a swim raft and also a variety of non motor boats.
What makes this house unique
Two wonderful homes very close but separate from each other. It would make a great place for a small retreat, family reunion or tennis club.
