Kent Estate Rental Photos and Description

4 Bdrm 3 Bth Lake House with view of Appalachian Trail and Schaghticoke Mountain

Welcome to this gorgeous lakeside estate nestled in the town of Dover, NY in the foothills of the Berkshires, 15 minutes from Kent, CT. This exceptional rental includes exclusive use of the estate's private 35 acre lake.

Perched on a peninsula along the shores of Lake Weil, this stunning 4-bedroom contemporary home offers spectacular lake views from nearly every window.

Pack a lunch and paddle to White Rock, located across the lake (canoes and kayaks provided). Hike along wooded nature trails and look for wildlife. Fish for bass, perch, and sunfish (White Rock Preserve at Lake Weil is a licensed NYS fishing preserve). Challenge friends and family to a game of ping pong or pool in the barn's game room. Further afield, browse through unique shops in one of the nearby towns, or sample wines at one of the region's award-winning wineries. Or, just lounge in the sun and enjoy the serenity of this secluded paradise.

Prepare breakfast in the Spanish style galley kitchen and savor your morning coffee in the adjacent sun room. Relax with a soothing glass of wine on the second story balcony off the master bedroom suite. Enjoy self-prepared meals in the open dining room (table opens to seat 10). Kick back and watch TV (46 inch flat screen) in the spacious, sun-filled living room. Play a rousing game of chess or cards in the cozy den overlooking the lake. Wind down at the end of the day in the 2-person jacuzzi tub. Sleep soundly in one of the 4 tastefully furnished bedrooms (sleeps 11). In the morning, watch the swirling mist roll along the surface of the water.

Spring highlights include bald eagles, osprey, kingfisher, nesting red shouldered hawks, and a wide variety of migrating ducks. In the summer, look for fox, raccoon, and deer. Fall offers breathtaking views of Schaghticoke Mountain, part of the 2,180 mile long Appalachian trail. Winter provides opportunities to snuggle up near the wood stove, snowshoe along trails, or try your hand at winter track identification.

Ideal for family vacations, a group of friends looking for an escape from urban living, or special events.

This is part of a family compound that dates back to the early 1900s. At that time, Joseph Weil, a teacher from New York City, began bringing students to camp in the area. This led to the development of a childrens' camp, Weil's Whispering Pines, and the creation of Lake Weil.

John Fila purchased this estate in 1910

Ideally situated 1.5 hours north of NYC, The Lake House offers a luxurious retreat in a pristine natural setting. The Hudson River Valley and Housatonic River Valley attractions are an easy, scenic drive away. You have easy access to adventurous antiquing (think Litchfield, CT), top-notch restaurants, unique shopping, rich historic sites, award-winning wineries, and much more. And after a day of exploring, wander back and relax at your own, private 65-acre estate.

Without question this is a unique rental. Lake Weil is part of The Lake House property. You are not simply renting a beautiful home, but also reserving full and exclusive use of this spectacularly scenic lake.

WONDERFUL FAMILY GATHERING SPOT

  • 5 of 5
We recently spent 4 days at this beautiful and secluded country setting. (It is even nicer than the pictures) Our three children, their spouses, and our two baby grandchildren had a relaxing and fun filled mini vacation. Everything was comfortable, clean and more than adequate for the crowd we brought. We spent a great deal of time cooking for each other in the well appointed kitchen. Our favorite memory will probably be the evenings we spent sitting together outside around the fire. We would highly recommend this listing.

SIMPLY FABULOUS!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay in the lake house was perfect from start to finish (only the wheather could have been better). We spent nearly all our stay on the property. You have everything you need for a few relaxing days: first and foremost the lake, several boats, a great lawn to play or relax, several seating areas, a hammock, picknick and barbecue area, etc. We went with 3 generations there and everybody enjoyed the stay. The house and other facilities are clean and well maintained. Nothing to complain. We will come back. Thanks Jon for making this possible!!

SECLUDED AND SERENE

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our recent stay at this remote rental. The view overlooking the private lake was breathtaking. If you want to get away with your family, this is the place to relax, and spend quality time together. We took advantage of the private lake home, using the kayaks, row boat, canoes, badminton and horse shoe court. I could go on and on. We will be back!

GRADUATION WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
An excellent spot for a family and friends long graduation weekend. We used every inch of the property, enjoyed kayaking and fishing on the lake, grilled at night, had a fire to enjoy the evening, and enjoyed our coffee in the morning admiring the fog on the lake. A perfect setting for our family. The house was clean, well equipped and very comfortable. We made it our home base for the Kent School graduation weekend. It was perfect.

GORGEOUS, TRANQUIL LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, a few close friends and our 13-year-old son enjoyed a rejuvenating Memorial Day weekend at the Lake House. It's hard to adequately praise the beauty of this setting. This house is the only one with access to this glass-like lake, and we spent a long time simply enjoying the beauty of the property. We used the kayaks and canoe on the premises, as well as the pool and ping pong tables, badminton net and horseshoes. We also had a beautiful lunch in the backyard and some serene morning coffee on the dock. The house itself was comfortable and attractively furnished, with more than everything one could need in the kitchen. Fresh flowers and a fruit basket greeted us, and great care had obviously been taken to ensure a pleasant visit. John was responsive and gracious, while allowing us our privacy over the weekend. When we could tear ourselves away from the Lake House, we enjoyed a hike in the Nature Reserve in Pawling and a walk through the Innisfree Gardens, both suggested in the guest book at the house. Big W's barbecue provided an ample and scrumptious dinner, and we had a nice lunch at the very casual Cousins Pizza. We can't wait to return to the house next year, and hope lots of people enjoy it as much as we did in the interim.

Notes:
A truly unique experience. This one of a kind property includes our lake, lake Weil. You can find other places on a lake to be sure but no where, no where, can you find a lake to rent. At least not a real lake. This is a vacation paradise. Its close to NYC yet completely isolated in a country setting. So go ahead, search. See if you can find anything like this. But hurry, reservations are coming in quickly for this newly listed vacation property.
