Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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.

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

Truly A Perfect Getaway!

Denise's lakefront house is everything we envisioned and more. The home has everything you need for cooking, BBQ, laundry, bar/cocktail, fireplace, outdoor activities/kayak/bonfire. The lake is absolutely beautiful and our family enjoyed a perfect memorial weekend, a truly perfect getaway. Denise is super responsive and a great host. Will definitely rent again.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

'The perfect weekend getaway'. That's what the heading should read when describing this cottage. My wife and I stayed with two other couples all looking for a break from our connected lifestyle. We found ourselves feet up enjoying a glass of wine around a fire for three nights straight!

From the minute we entered the front door we felt welcome. Denise, the owner, penned a friendly note that was both sweet and informative. It was apparent a lot of love and care was put into making sure the experience was what every guest hopes to have. The decor was perfect, the amenities were plentiful and all six of us raved how comfortable the beds were every morning.

Friday and Saturday were spent mostly on the property either kayaking, boating, cooking, hanging by the fire or relaxing inside. Sunday we decided to take a ride into Hillsdale, a quaint little town with shops and cafes..We definitely plan on booking again soon!

Owner's Response: Wow! We hope everyone enjoys their stay here as much as all of you did! It was a surprise bumping into you in Hillsdale but a nice one! It looked like you were having quite a bit of fun! We hope to see you in the future. Winter is a wonderful time to spend at the lake with ice skating and hiking on the ice!

Exceeded Expectations

  • 5 of 5

Denise was great welcoming us and helping with the rental of a pontoon boat which was great for fishing and just plain chillaxing which was the theme of our reunion stay. Would definitely rent place again. We dined several nights at the Greens at Copake CC and highly recommend them.
