Watching the sun raise or set on this Mediterranean style veranda will make you feel as if you were sitting in Southern France or Northern Italy. You overlook this gorgeous lake with all its tranquility and incredible range of animals including eagles, blue herons, beavers and swans just to name a few. You have full privacy at the pool, unwind laying in the hammock with a good book or glass of wine. Take out the kayak and enjoy the closeness to the water while exploring the environment. Cook your own dinner in a large gourmet kitchen overlooking the lake or BBQ. You may also visit one of the elegant restaurants right by the Hudson River, which is 10 minutes away.
At night, you may wish to play a round of table tennis in your own table tennis room.
In the winter, you can either ice skate on the lake or you head up north to Hunter or Wyndham mountain for skiing or snow boarding.
When you come back home, you enjoy hot cocoa by the cozy wood fireplace in the grand living room while one of you plays the baby grand e-piano.
Thank you for everything that you did to make our stay so perfect. We got take-out food from Leo's and we were happy with our meals. Your home is so beautiful and the lake was mesmerizing! I can't put into words how perfect this was - my husband was extremely happy to have his children and grandchildren with him to celebrate his birthday. There were many matches of ping-pong with my son and & I and he still manages to be the champ! My daughter and I went for a paddle boat ride today and that too was relaxing and peaceful. My husband and I went for a walk with our grandson and I took some many great pictures of our stay. Again thank you and I hope you and your family get to enjoy many more happy times in Cornwall.
PS my daughter-in-law is from Germany and enjoyed some of the German books at your home.
Threw myself a 30th birthday weekend away with a dozen friends. The house comfortably fit all of us, and we could have had even more. The location is perfect for traveling from NYC (train was pretty easy to organize) and visiting Storm King. The lake is gorgeous, everyone enjoyed boating, morning noon and night and we even got to use the pool. The house has literally everything you could need for cooking and entertaining a group this size. Could not have had a better experience! I may even come back and rent another time, it was so lovely.
What a fabulous home to house our family and friends for West Point Graduation 2014! This property has all one could ask for and we were made to feel at home. The owner is a dream to work with, efficient and kind. The home is beautiful and spacious and the grounds are lovely. Everyone had a wonderful time fishing, swimming in the pool, kayaking, paddle boating, playing basketball and relaxing on the massive decks or at the firepit! The house was very clean, the beds are so comfortable, the massive kitchen includes pretty much anything you could imagine you might need to cook with and it's impossible to feel "crowded". We can't say enough good things about this place and it's owner! Staying here made this special week complete! Highly recommend! Thank you, Silvia!!!
This is a great place to stay with lots of room for even more than 13 people if you wanted to bring sleeping bags. Lots to do on the water or in the pool and we enjoyed roasting marshmallows in the fire pit right by the water!
So grateful for the time that my family and I shared at this beautiful home over Christmas 2013. We flew in from California, Las Vegas, some drove up from Maryland and NYC. It was the 1st Christmas we've had together on the east coast in nearly a decade. We made great memories! Thanks Silvia for a wonderful home! -tim
I am so sorry it has taken me a long time to send my review. But I wanted to express my thanks to Silvia for such am amazing house to have spent it with my close friends for my 35th Birthday, Great Gatsby theme. The place was so inviting, full of amenities and big for everyone to feel at the home. I really would recommend this place again for anyone trying to escape the Big city or for having a nice reunion with their family and friends. Thanks so much Silvia for your advice and for making this birthday one of a kind. All the best.
Splendid house filled with light and beautiful views of the lake made for a truly special Thanksgiving holiday. Kitchen was comfortable to cook in with ample supply of dishes and cooking utensils.
Beds & baths were very comfortable and since we all enjoy playing ping pong the game room was a real plus!! Location of the house was perfect for us since it is an easy drive
from New York City. We enjoyed the Storm King Arts Center and the tastings at the Brotherhood Winery as well as lunch at their cafe. All details of the house were accurately described. Because it was November, we couldn't take advantage of boating on the lake or the pool, but the fireplace in the living room was a cozy comfort. We highly recommend this property!
