Overview

Whaley Lake Chalet Rental Photos and Description

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Exhale with Superb Lake views just 90 minutes from New York City! Pull in at the Pawling Train Station and take a cab to the Chalet!

Impressive, 2200 square foot, five bedroom, three bathroom, three-story, chalet-style home on Whaley Lake in Dutchess County, New York. Beautifully furnished and just 90 minutes drive from Midtown New York City.

TRY THIS: A Working Vacation,

With your family spending the week at the Lake, it is a short 10 minute drive from the Chalet to Metro North Railroad in Patterson. Take The Metro North directly to Grand Central Station departing at 7:02am and arriving Grand Central at 8:27am. Return in the evening to your relaxed family, departing Grand Central Station 5:59pm, arrive Patterson 7:27pm. Then, after a working week, enjoy the weekend with your family at beautiful Whaley Lake.

Regardless of the time of year, the Chalet offers a tranquil setting to relax and unwind. Recline on the spacious, second-story balcony, take to the water in the 3 person canoes, or in winter, enjoy the warmth of the woodburning fire and watch the snow fall.

The Lake house offers a very spacious vacation and entertaining environment, ideal for families with children of all ages, a group of friends or a romantic getaway for two. From the first hint of light in the morning to the colorful glows of the dusk sky, the exhilarating, elevated views of the pristine lake and its surroundings will impress.

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.

Great getaway location for large group of family and friends!

  • 5 of 5
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.

Amazing rental property an hour from the city

  • 5 of 5
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!

Great chalet for a wonderful gettaway

  • 5 of 5
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!

Excellent longer term summer rental

  • 5 of 5
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.

Beautiful Lake House

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect house for our group of twelve coming from NYC for the holiday weekend. We do this twice a year and everyone was happy and comfortable and had a great time. A lot of this was due to the large, clean home with lake access. There was swimming, fishing, boating, grilling, and much more available. The owners provided us with all information needed and were very communicative via email. We will definitely be staying here again. Thanks so much!!!
