Sincere D'Amore - 'A Love You Never Have To Question'
Welcome to the quiet confines of Sincere D'Amore nestled in the heart of the Taconic Mountain Range in Columbia County, NY, bordering Massachusetts' Berkshire County.
You wake up an hour past dawn, grab a cup of java and sit out on your private deck that overlooks shimmering Copake Lake, a 365 acre multiuse lake. Maybe you're contemplating your 10:00 a.m. tee-off at the Copake Lake Country Club or landing that 'Lunker' largemouth bass that got away. You could be planning the route of your 10 mile bike trek through the rolling farmland down to Bash-Bish Falls State Park or making a list of antique shops to hit in search of that perfect dresser for your bedroom.
About 2 hours from New York City and 2.5 hours from Boston, the house is situated on ½ acre of land with 12 feet of sliding glass doors and skylights that overlook the lake and brings the foliage right into you’re living room. There are antique grade pine floors throughout the house which is fully equipped with linens, towels, outdoor grill and all the kitchen accoutrements to create that culinary masterpiece.
We have also provided all the conveniences of home such as air conditioning, a central heating system, cable TV, CD player, DVD with a home theatre system, and wireless internet for your laptop. For the final touch there's even glass door wood stove for keeping warm on those romantic evenings. The house sleeps up to 6 in the 3 antique furnished bedrooms. There's 1 and 1/2 baths.
Sincere D'Amore is a wonderful place to spend a fun-filled weekend with the kids or a romantic weekend for two.

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore (Sincere D'Amore) !
We would like to thank you for everything. The house was so cozy and warm with the wood burning stove (our favorite). It's in a beautiful location surrounded with birch trees (brian's favorite) and capped with starry nights. The best winter spot we've ever stayed in! The location was perfect for a getaway from NYC. Copake lake was frozen and we saw many people on snow mobiles and ice fishing. Can't wait to see it in the Spring time on the golf course, so we will be in touch!!! Sorry we forgot to leave tips for the cleaning crew, we didn't realize till we got home. How may we reach them so that we can send them a tip?
We will write a review on the website so that many people may enjoy the true gifts and pleasures sincere d'amore has to offer. Once again, thank you!
Spent a lovely weekend with my Fiancee walking around Copake Lake and enjoying the crisp upstate New York air.
Blaise was very helpful and accommodating, responding to all of my messages in a timely manner.
We're definitely looking forward to traveling back and spending a long weekend during the summer there at some point.
Stayed here with my family and pets. My dogs loved the surrounding lawn, running like fools. My parents loved the lake view from the house. The view, the trees and the air about the area and house were very homely and uplifting. I would recommend this place to anyone seeking a retreat from city life. It is also very romantic with the fire furnace and small living room. Loved every minute of it. The owner is a great host and very responsive.
My wife and I found the Lake Cottage just as we expected. Everything was there that we needed to enjoy a great week of exploring. We used this cottage as a base and traveled out from there every day to visit points of interest throughout the country side. Fall is a beautiful time to be in the Berkshires and the color was coming on nicely.
My family and I had a great time at Sincere D'Amore and we already miss it. Within a few days we felt so 'at home' that it began to seem like a second home. The exterior property is very spacious with a large hammock on the lawn and just a walk down the street is a large private pebble beach area with a deck, fire pit and access to the southern edge of beautiful Copake lake that my kids couldn't get enough of. Others in the neighborhood have access to this as well but fortunately, every day of our stay we had this wonderful lake front all to ourselves. This roomy country home, with all wood floors and wall panels, was well stocked with linens and the kitchen had all we needed, yet the patio gas grill was the primary source for cooking and was great. Our only desire was for the bathrooms to have a fresh painting over some moldy corners. There are homes close by but still felt private enough and was quiet. The home itself is enjoyable enough to stay in and enjoy a movie at night or drive around the scenic Columbia County/Berkshires country side and check out the many things to see/do in this gem of upstate NY. This is a great place (and region) to enjoy for both couples or a family that I'm sure I'll want to revisit and I'm sure if you do you will feel right at home. Thanks Blaise for making this so easy and enjoyable a stay!
We went there on the Memorial Day weekend 2015 for my 50th birthday. What a beautiful gift my children gave me, I got to spend in a beautiful cozy home which was rich with scenic views. Everything was neat and clean and perfect. I definitely recommend this home to my friends and family and I am sure that no one will be disappoint.
The owner was very friendly and accommodating. Since it was offseason, we were pretty much the only folks around, which was nice for us and my 2 dogs. The listing description was spot on: nothing fancy, but 3 clean and comfortable bedrooms, a spacious comfortable living room with a great glass door wood stove, kitchen with dishwasher, nice big deck with gas grill overlooking the lake. Great location about 5 miles from 2 nice little towns: Hudson NY and Great Barrington MA, both with nice shops and restaurants. And don't miss Olana, the wonderful estate of Hudson River School landscape painter Frederich Church, right near Hudson. Beautiful mansion and fabulous Hudson River views. I'd definitely recommend this listing and would definitely go back. My only caveat was that the bathroom was not the greatest, but it was a very small inconvenience and the only reason I didn't award 5 stars. And having the extra half-bath was nice.
A beautiful rural setting with lake front access for swimming, fishing, kayaking and canoeing. There are two marinas on the lake where you can rent watercraft. 1/2 hour to Great Barrington and Tanglewood, MA. Plenty of shopping, restaurants, riding stables, hiking, cycling, fruit picking, and state parks, etc. nearby.
