Peaceful and Serene are the two words to describe the feelings once you enter the Chalet...
My friends and I had a wonderful time at the cabin, despite it still being winter! Incredible views of the lake covered in a beautiful, thick fog were welcome sights to wake up to each morning. Very spacious and well-kept. Overall a great place to stay.
The lake chalet was a really nice experience with the beautiful wiew of lake and forest, exactly the right place where you can spend weekends and holidays with family or friends. Pretty quiet place and also not far from the city. We really enjoyed staying there, we went fishing on the lake and also we got some fish. It's amazing place and we hope to be there again.
I went to the Lake Chalet with a group of 11 people to celebrate a friend's birthday. We had a fantastic time enjoying the views of the lake from the deck, cooking out on the grill, relaxing by the firepit, and of course swimming and canoeing in the lake. I would highly recommend staying here with a big group! The owners were very easy to communicate with and friendly.
This house is great for a group of friends or family. A group of us stayed here for a weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday and had an awesome time. We spent the first night hanging out in the house and cooking in the huge open kitchen and living area. We also took advantage of the fire pit out in the yard. Both days we spent out on the lake which is only a short walk down a path at the bottom of the driveway. We caught plenty of fish and had an all around great time away from it all. We will definitely stay here again. Highly recommend it!
Our stay at lake Chalet was an absolute delight! the house is big and bright, and the beds were very comfortable. we loved the outdoor grill on which we made dinner for 8 people, the big kitchen that made hosting a breeze, the fire pit where we sat and roasted marshmallows, and the easy lake access, where we canoed with the owner provided canoes. all the beddings and towels were top notch, and the bathrooms were very nice with very good water pressure. great views from the deck on which we did yoga in the morning, and enjoyed the views of the lake at dusk. it was very quiet during the night, the a/c in every room worked very well. we never tried the tvs, but we did use the internet that was included. highly recommend this house, very comfortable, very nice owners that obviously care a lot about the experience of staying here, would love to come back. looking forward to trying the jacuzzi tub next time!
We (group of 4) rented the chalet from Connie and (David) for 2 months in the summer (July and August). We would drive up from NYC on Friday after work and arrive usually within 100mins and drive back on Sundays. We also took a few days off from work and enjoyed weekly stays. The owners were fantastic to deal with for the entire summer, as any time we needed anything they were very attentive and helpful. They even bought a new grille when the previous one was starting to be faulty.
The best times were having friends over for the weekend to enjoy the lake (canoeing, fishing, swimming, rope swing), group dinners ( we cooked A LOT)!or going to nearby festivals (almost every weekend there was an event, the best being the one in Rhinebeck, Dutchess County Fair, (just give time to exit and get there early so you park near the front for quicker departure as getting out was a nightmare), golfing, and cute and tasty restaurants and diners. Pawling has a really nice town center with a NYC grade restaurant and bakery (McKinney and Doyle's) plus a small farmers market on Saturdays. There's also an excellent crepe shop there- Petite. Plus in the general area, esp. Route 22, there are also fun shops like antiques, wood furniture stores, (brought home to our apt. In nyc) that were reasonably priced. There's also a great Dinner - Karens.
The house can easily accommodate 8 but is not too big for a group of 4 or even 2. The many bedrooms, bathrooms, and open kitchen to dining and balcony (great view lake) really makes it a fun house to enjoy with family and friends. The master bedroom view is also incredible. The downstairs room isn't the greatest; it's loud at night bc of pipes in walls so put the kids down there or folks who don't mind the noise.
We highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys lake and small town life. Note nearest small town Pawling or Patterson was a 13 min drive.
