Domino Magazine featured this completely transformed lake cottage in its October 2008 Renovator's Notebook. Stylishly furnished and tastefully designed, this sweet and functional dwelling is nestled into a lovely cove of Copake Lake in Columbia County NY, just two hours north of New York City. Copake Lake is a water shed lake, all-purpose water attraction, both in summer and winter.
Short drives to plentiful points of interest: Bash Bish State Park, Harlem Valley Rail Trail,Catamount Ski/Catamount Adventure Park, Hudson NY Antiques, Hancock Shaker Village, Norman Rockwell Museum, Great Barrington Mass., Tanglewood, and Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, to name a few. Fine Dining includes The Greens at Copake Country Club (On Copake Lake), The Swiss Hutte in Hillsdale NY, and The Old Mill in Egremont, Mass.
Summertime is abundant with water sports, hiking, and s’mores at the outdoor fire pit, to name a few.
Winter activities include some of the most pristine ice skating in the Northeast, cross country skiing, alpine skiing and snowboarding at Catamount Ski Area (12 minutes) and Butternut Ski Area (30 minutes), snowmobiling, and innertubing/sledding on the scenic 18 hole Copake Country Club Golf Course, which is situated right on Copake Lake. An outdoor fire pit provides year round pleasure.

About Denise Chickery
I have lived on Copake Lake for over seventeen years, and have a deep appreciation for its unique beauty. Several years ago, three partners and myself formed a company called ABCD homes, and started buying ill-used properties and restoring them to their appropriate charm and style. We are architects, builders, designers, and residents who care a great deal about preserving the history and health of the lake and its surroundings so that others may experience what we have.
Denise Chickery purchased this Cabin in 2007

Went up for a girls’ getaway and had a great time! Thank you Denise and Steven for sharing your home with me! I’ll definitely be back
Fantastic lake front cottage
I highly recommend staying in this well equipped lakefront cottage. The lake was lovely to wake up to each and every morning and we spent many hours, regardless of the weather, on the enclosed porch. DEnise, the owner, is wonderful to work with and could not have been more accomadating. This was our third year renting and look forward to many more vacations on Copake Lake
Thank you so much for such a positive review. We love having you here at the lake in August and love your husband playing the bagpipes every evening at sunset. See you next year!
