Overview

Copake House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom plus loft sleeping area, sleeps 6

Beautifully restored 2 bedroom (plus attic loft) home brings contemporary living to this hidden gem just 2 hours from NYC. We gutted the house completely incorporating modern amenities like a brand new stainless steel kitchen with granite countertops, hardwood bamboo flooring and a large deck to enjoy the view of the pond just steps away. Relax in the living room watching the fire or the 3D flat panel TV or just looking out the picture window to see the fish jumping in the pond right outside the large picture window. Shmooze in the kitchen or at the dining room table just steps from the sliding doors taking you out on the recently built deck to dine al fresco. Walk down the dock just steps from the house to swim in the refreshing pond or use our kayak for a leisurely paddle. Our home is a great place for all seasons; watch the leaves change in fall, the flowers bloom in spring, close to skiiing in winter and lots of water fun in the summer. Not to mention the close proximity to the Berkshires and all it has to offer. 2 hours from NYC makes this an easy drive just to get away after a hard week at work. The house is located directly on Robinson Pond; a 100 acre pond allowing electric motor boats, kayaks, canoes, swimming and fishing. The house is 30 miles from Tanglewood, close to Jacob's Pillow, a short drive to Bash Bish Falls. This location is ideally situated close to NY as well as to the Berkshires plus hiking, skiing and swimming. Close to Catamount and Butternut ski areas..

Wonderful weekend at the lake

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was wonderful and just perfect for our anniversary weekend getaway from the city. The lake is right outside the door and so pristine and peaceful. We enjoyed cooking meals outside, fire in the fire pit, and exploring the lake in the kayak (there is also a paddleboat!). The fish were definitely jumping, and my husband managed to get a fishing license from the local town hall, but be sure you bring all your equipment as there isn't anywhere nearby to get tackle etc. The kitchen has pretty much everything you need if you like to do a bit of cooking, and you can find plenty of free range meat/poultry as well as freshly picked produce at the many farmstands in the area. We also went biking on the rail trail nearby - lovely! Ilana and Patrick were very responsive and great to deal with. We can't wait to go back next year. .

Great spot to R & R..

  • 5 of 5

The owners were extremely accommodating, the property was beautiful, and in a great location. The space seems much larger than its square footage as they've done an incredible job with the layout. Unfortunately it rained our entire weekend, but we were able to check out the nice quiet beach, and catch a few bluegills fishing. Would absolutely recommend this location for anyone looking for a nice relaxing trip.

Amazing Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had an amazing stay here. The house was big enough to accompany all of us, yet small enough for a relaxing, cozy getaway. The lake was breathtaking and there was a kayak and a pedal boat. I definitely recommend staying here. We can't wait to return!

Robinson Pond

  • 3 of 5

The owners accommodated our early arrival (1 hour.) The backyard and the dock were great and we used for relaxing, kayaking, swimming and pedal-boating. Swimming was best from the small sandy beach across the pond where the water is clear. Be sure to check this website for any pond closures: http://www.taconicshores.org/ or search on Taconic Shore Property Owners Association. We were unaware prior to our stay that the pond is occasionally closed for 24 hours for treatment. The owner gave us a partial refund for part of the day that the pond was closed.

Amazing stay! We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

A group of five of us wanted to get away for a fun Autumn weekend, and this was absolutely the perfect spot! The cabin is amazingly cozy. Ilana is very considerate and incredibly accommodating for my friends and me. The area is quiet and right on the lake. It's so peaceful and a great getaway from NYC. We cooked dinner and spent the entire night by the fire pit. The cabin had everything we needed! The only complaint is we weren't able to stay longer! It was honestly the perfect weekend! This place would be perfect any season. We will definitely be coming back for a longer trip!
