About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Full baths, Sleeps 8 Maximium, Dogs are ok

At the Coop, we are on the lake! You will find a place full of opportunities to waddle, climb onto kayaks, or simply wet your toes. There are two fire pits; one on the upper deck and one by the lake. The home offers an "open-plan" layout with all the modern convenience. The rooms are spacious with ample room for nooks and spaces to find tranquility. The double decks, water side seating, and open lawn, gives everyone the opportunity to make it their own paradise.

Centrally located to a number of attractions and activities within a 30 mile radius. Lake Joseph is known for their hospitality to two previous Archbishops of NY before becoming a private community. With wonderful trails leading to the old quarters or simply walking around the lake and bird watching, there is something for everyone. We have a few eagles nest, otters, and hawks that make Lake Joseph their home. You can find wine tasting, eagle washing, fishing, sporting clay, glass factories, and antiques stores. In addition, we are 10 miles from Bethelwoods the home of Woodstock ( The town of Forestburgh is also known for their play productions that appeal to children and adults alike.

There is something to experience at every season. We look forward to seeing you!

Ms. Josefin

Wonderful place, great time

  • 5 of 5

We were there 2 couples. There are too many things to say for that nice and clean place. Before you arrive the house you can feel seriously home away from home. Nice view, clean kitchen, clean bathrooms, enough equipment for cooking, nice outside walking area ( if it s snow you can enjoy every moment). There is no phone connection in house but not a big problem. We were there for 2 nights but we are planning to go there again for 3-4 nights.

I can't say anything bad about this place. Just i can say GREAT!!! Thank you for this nice house.

Peaceful quiet getaway!

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a great time here! Loved how homey & open the house felt. Truly felt like a home away from home. The kids loved going on the kayaks & fishing right from the dock & bringing back fish they caught to cook up. Sitting by the fire by the water & roasting marshmallows was awesome after a long day on the water was just a great way to end the nights. Couldn't go swinging in the lake which was the only thing we didn't like but the pool made up for it. Overall it was a great family vacation & would definitely come back again for sure!!!

Nice Place, Just Not What We Were Expecting

  • 3 of 5

Overall the cabin was nice and clean. There is VERY limited cell service at the house for both Verizon and At&t. There is a home phone but it doesn't have long distance. We made our calls through the WiFi though and that worked fine.

Pros: Common areas of the house were large and comfortable. Loved the decks and the kitchen was beautiful! Was a nice quiet location and views of lake were breathtaking. We had the opportunity to enjoy a concert and museum tour of Woodstock. This was amazing and it's very close to the house. The house is also within 10 minutes of a town area with a Walmart etc. This was convenient. Kitchen was fully stocked and had everything we need pots/pans wise. That was very much appreciated.

Cons: The third bedroom/queen bed is an air mattress. Although it's a nice air mattress it's still an air mattress. We were very upset with this considering the price. We piled as many blankets and towels as we could find on the mattress beneath the fitted sheet so the person couldn't feel the mattress top.

We were told you could swim in the lake right at the house. You cannot. The water is shallow and grimy. My husband doesn't usually care about much and he wouldn't swim in it. We were very upset about this as we had asked the owner before booking. The neighbors all have large kiddie pools they swim in and then there is the community pool. But we paid for lakefront and lake swimming. So we were not happy about this and wanted to make sure others were aware.

The lake and setting are gorgeous.

  • 4 of 5

We rented "The Coop" for a month and overall thought it was roomy with a fabulous view. The kitchen is well stocked and the decks are great. The new patio area down by the lake is a relaxing spot for cocktails, or just hanging out. There is no cell service in the house and that was an inconvenience since we had to go up the street to make a phone call. We enjoyed the kayaks, but the boat was not usable. The oarlocks were lose and the boat leaked with any weight in the stern. This was disappointing since we were planning on doing a bit of fishing on the well stocked lake. The bedroom downstairs has an air mattress on the floor which is not suitable for anyone over the age of 12. The downstairs furniture was small and sparse There were some maintenance issues that were resolved quickly by Zuly and overall we enjoyed the Catskills and our stay at "The Coop". Diane and Rod

Owner's Response: Thank you Diane and Rod for your stay at the Lake House. We are glad that you both had the opportunity to enjoy the lake. I believe that having a person near the home for guest is an invaluable resource. I'm glad that Flor was able to be available during your stay to support your personal preferences and needs. The air mattress is a two level queen size mattress. We believe in keeping the space downstairs with minimal furniture to adjust to groups of families that come with children and would like a larger space to set up various child friendly furniture. We do love the lake and am glad that you enjoy the kayaks. It was wonderful to have you and your husband stay with us. Thank you for the lovely kitchen towels that you provided to the home. The matched the ones that we had available.
