About Frederick Moran

Fred Moran is a Wall Street Stock Analyst. This Copake Lake house has been his vacation property for 2 decades. Born and raised in Manhattan, Fred went to Fieldston High School and worked for leading investment banking firms in New York City. He enjoys power boating, waterskiing, cycling and tennis. Fred started weekending at Copake Lake immediately after graduating from college when his best friend and he bought their first waterski boat together.

Frederick Moran purchased this chateau / country house in 1995

Why Frederick Moran chose Copake

The Island at Copake Lake represents the premier community in the region with only 12 homes on 24 secluded Island acres. The Chateau De Mo stands on the cul de sac towards the end of the Island facing the biggest, most sweeping section of the main lake. The 4,100 square foot home has an open floor plan and an oversized back deck for active family living and entertaining. Watersports, swimming and fishing off the dock provide endless family fun. A newly constructed community tennis court is just steps from the Chateau.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

Copake Lake's premier community with the best views of Copake Lake. Power boating and watersports including watersking on Copake Lake are a blast.

Perfect for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5
We chose this house because it had enough bedrooms and bathrooms to accommodate our family of 8 adults and 4 children, it's location on a lake, and because it was a midway point between us and the various areas where our children live.

We enjoyed the gorgeous lake views from the large deck, and also from every room in the house! There is a large common area on both floors of the house -- great for adults in one and supervised children in another. It is definitely a very kid friendly house -- many toys, books, puzzles, high chair, crib, safety rails for beds, gated fence for lake access, and even mesh put up inside the railings on the deck so little hands, legs, etc could not get stuck.

Fred, the owner, was very responsive and helpful. Beforehand, lists were emailed that gave all the info one needed. It was a rainy, chilly day on the second day of our stay. I emailed him about using the fireplace -- and he answered almost immediately -- telling us yes and where the firewood was! He also was agreeable to us inviting some nearby relatives over to spend the day with us.

The beds were all comfortable and the showers had great water pressure. Our family loved it. If you are looking for a fantastic place for a group -- you can't go wrong with Chateau de Mo!

We agree with everyone else that this place is great -- we've rented through VRBO a lot, and the difference here is that the owner is also the manager, and is completely responsive to questions, concerns, etc. Best equipped and most fully supplied place we've stayed at. We also thought that the online description is totally accurate, and it's priced right for what you get. We had a great time, and plan to return.

What a wonderful vacation! My husband and I were looking for a place not too far from home to vacation with our family of 5 children and their families. Chateau Mo was perfect! The chateau was very clean and well cared for, aside from being beautiful and located on a great lake! There was plenty of space for all of us,and the Chateau had toys for our three little granddaughters to play with, and a wonderful deck overlooking the lake. All of the rooms had a view of the lake!
The owner Frederick, was very responsive to all of our questions both before and during our stay. We would recommend the Chateau to everyone. Even though there are many activities and attractions to frequent nearby, we just spent a relaxing week at the Chateau enjoying the lake and the beauty of the area.

Tennis Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This past weekend, we had our annual tennis weekend getaway at Chateau De Mo on Copake Lake. There were 10 of us and this house had more than enough room to fit everyone comfortably.
The brand new tennis court was just steps from the lakefront home and in perfect shape. We even had a local tennis pro come by for 2 1/2 hours of drills for the group.
The chateau sits on a private Island with gorgeous lake views in a wooded country setting.
Spacious, comfortable, clean and a well-kept house was enjoyed by us all. The deck was spacious and wrapped around the front of the house and the view was spectacular. The lake is large and there is a convenient boat rental just minutes from the house. We cooked in for the entire weekend and the kitchen is well equipped with pots, pans and other utensils.
Owner Frederick Moran attended to our needs and had everything organized. He responded quickly to every question I had, provided lists of things to do, recommended restaurants, and even gave us a contact name for the tennis pro.
I highly recommend Chateau de Mo.

Another note: A few of us took a drive to the Copake Country Club and the view from the Greens restaurant is spectacular. The Brunch menu on Sundays also looked good. Next time, we hope to sightsee and check out some of the nearby restaurants.

Fantastic stay at Chateau de Mo!

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I had a wonderful weekend stay at Chateau de Mo. We desperately needed a respite from NYC and found a gem with Frederick's home on Copake Lake. Frederick was extremely hospitable leading up to our stay (i.e., suggesting a number of restaurants, sites and activities for during our stay) and extremely responsive to my questions over email. The house is beautiful and slept our entire group of 8 comfortably. We lit a fire, cooked dinner and enjoyed the Copake sights. I'd highly recommend a stay at Chateau de Mo and will definitely be back!

Awesome Destination for Family Celebration

  • 5 of 5
We recently celebrated my 60th birthday at Chateau de Mo. We were 5 couples. We all comfortably fit with room to spare. he house offered many place to gather and the outdoor spaces were wonderful. From sitting on the deck reading, to kayaking, to playing a game around the table in the downstairs family room, to all of us gathering for meal preparation in the expansive kitchen, the house accommodated everything we wanted to do. We also took advantage of the area and did some hiking. We had a great time and Fred was incredibly helpful and accessible. I would highly recommend this wonderful propery for your getaway.
