About Roland Laffert

Patricia grew up in Queens, NY and often camped and hiked in the area. Roland grew up in Strasbourg, France. Soon after they met and were married they purchased this cottage as a summer and weekend getaway.

Roland Laffert purchased this cottage in 1979

Why Roland Laffert chose Copake Lake

Copake Lake has a history of devoted fans that spans generations. Once you spend time at the Lake you always want to return. Careers took the Lafferts up North but the cottage is still an oasis of peace and beauty which they continue to frequent with family and friends.

What makes this cottage unique

Columbia County has much to offer visitors both scenically and culturally from summer to leaf peeper season.

It was just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay for a month while between houses, and this was a great place to spend it! Very nice, clean house with wooden floors and nice decorations. We spent a lot of time on the deck enjoying the peace and quiet and the neighborhood deer. My husband worked from home and never had a problem with the internet connection. Our Godson enjoyed the cable TV! It was a treat to have a nice washer and dryer on the first floor as well as a dishwasher. There was occasional noise from nearby homes, but nothing that lasted long. The lake is a short walk away, as well as an ice cream place. There is a nice kitchen and grill with a picnic table. The Greens, the restaurant at the golf club, is a short drive away and is quite nice. Good food and drinks and a pretty view. We enjoyed our stay, and the hosts were easy to reach and very accommodating.

Relaxed and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here. Being close to the lake was a great bonus, The house is clean and well appointed and we especially enjoyed a nightly visit by a doe who came into the yard nearly every evening. It's good for walking as well as close to lots of things in the Hudson valley and Berkshires. Very comfortable and relaxing.

Wonderful location and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house because of its location right near a lake and a well maintained property. The neighborhood is very quiet and low key. The area has lots to do-hiking, biking, swimming, art, small town life. It was our first time in this particular area of upstate NY and we loved it. The owners were very responsive when we had questions. The house was clean when we arrived and the kitchen had everything we needed. The deck is so relaxing-we ate all of our meals there. It's suitable for 3-4 people with its size and one bathroom which was just what we were looking for. We would definitely rent again.

A lovely weekend escape

  • 5 of 5

The Copake Lake Cottage provided the perfect weekend escape from NYC. The house is lovely and has all amenities. Best, Roland was a wonderful host. While we did not meet in person, he quickly answered all of my (too many) emailed questions quickly and graciously.

I would highly recommend staying in this well-equipped comfortable home.

Great Memorial Day weekend

  • 5 of 5

The four of us came up to Copake lake for memorial weekend and we wanted to be close with walking distance to the lake and this place was just that. We were set back alittle with a lot of privacy. The lake was right down the block. The house had everything we needed, came almost fully stocked plus bbq and linens. The owners were very easy to with and the process was simple.It was a beautifully weekend and we really enjoyed hanging out on the deck relaxing. I would definitely recommended this house if you are looking to come to the lake for the weekend or a longer stay.

A quaint copake paradise

  • 5 of 5

I rented this property for a long weekend full of wedding festivities at the country club. The house is adorable and comfortable and came with all the amenities a person could ask for. I'd like to rent it again when I have more time to actually be IN the house. Very enjoyable.
