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 Berkshires

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.

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.

Quiet & Peaceful Lake Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was very quaint and clean. I spent two weeks working remotely for the beautiful deck. Being that WiFi was incredibly important for my stay it was fabulous. No issues what-so-ever with connecting or staying connected to the internet and my office. The cabin is a very short walk to the lake and I was able to head down and enjoy the water and scenery in the evenings. When not working for the deck I was entertained by the many squirrels and deer that enjoy wandering and playing in the woods just off the deck.

All interactions with the owner was pleasant, they truly made it wonderful. There was even bug spray, condiments & coffee at the house when I arrived making things even more pleasant and easy. There was a little store just 10-15 minutes away in Hillsdale for anything else I needed.

I would recommend this cabin to anyone looking to get away from it all or work from a nice quiet remote location. I would definitely stay again if the opportunity arises.
