About the property

4-5 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps up to 12

A family-friendly cottage on a relaxing, peaceful, spring-fed lake in the foothills of the Catshkill Mountains, outside of Deposit New York. Swimming, boating, and sunbathing are within 25' of the front porch. Just 3 hours from New York City. A great place to enjoy food and friends in a vacation setting that is calm and slow-paced. Time is tracked by the early morning mist on the water and the sunset over the mountains. Clear, refreshing, and tranquil lake water is more than welcoming; it is revitalizing. Fishing, hiking, antiquing, golf, and horseback riding, are available within minutes of the cottage. Scotts' Resort has golf & tennis.

CHILDREN in the WATER: The depth of the water goes from about 12” at the shore and about 54” at the front of the dock. It is great for little ones to wade in and good at the front of the dock for all to dive in. The bottom is mostly rocks, both round and flat with a little bit of dirt. It is extremely pleasant – nothing gooey. I have been swimming there my entire life and my kids have spent some part of all their summers in the lake as well. All water can be hazardous, but it is as safe as a pool in your back yard.
