The house is situated on the lake and feels like its' nestled in the woods. It was built in 1969 and has a distinctive seventies feel with classically stylish mid century modern furniture pieces. In tone the house is more minimal than cluttered. It has a record player with a good selection of vinyl and a table tennis table for those who wish to unleash the competitive ping pong beast within. The house is close to Cold Spring and the Fahnestock State Park which has hiking trails, a beautiful beach, picnic areas, scenic campground, and abundant opportunities for boating, fishing, and birding.

Wonderful getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time with our 9-month-old and three-year-old sons, plus our little Westie. Everyone loved romping in the yard and taking canoe trips to the sandy beaches for swimming and fish-spotting. The house was comfortable and had everything we needed (and more! we couldn't have made it through the fabulous record collection even if that had been the only thing we did). The few days we spent there felt like a longer getaway in the best way possible. Mister Basquali was also very communicative and helpful. We highly recommend staying here.

Thoughtful owner that provides all

  • 5 of 5

The thoughtful and helpful owner has provided everything you would need for a family vacation, from the screening room and record player to sport supplies, from BBQ equipment to laundry -- all ready for use. We had everything we needed. We did wish the grocery stores and restaurants were closer, but I guess that's a price you have to pay for the serenity and nature.

Lovely Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here in Putnam Valley! The snow was falling and we hunkered down for a cozy weekend with the great record collection. It was the respite we needed. The property is great in the winter, but I bet it's even better in the warmer months.

Quiet, Beautiful and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived at the Pudding Pad, we knew this place was special. It was quiet, beautiful and comfortable. The access to the lake and to the nearby hiking of the Appalachian Trail via Fahnestock State Park made it easy to enjoy nature while having the luxury of our own space. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a respite from the fast pace and frentic world around them. Additionally, the record collection is dynamite!
