Original 1950s, Lakefront Log-cabin With Updated Amenities And Decor.
Quintessential Hudson Valley, just over an hour north of NYC, charming and peaceful 1950s cabin with private lake dock on beautiful Lake Dutchess. This non-motorboat, quiet, peaceful private lake is the perfect setting for the Fall foliage, Winter snowscapes, Spring blooms, and Summer swimming. Take a canoe ride (provided), fish (PLENTY of bass), a summer dip, or even an ice skate in the winter.
Immersed in the woods, this cozy log cabin is a perfect mix of rural/rustic charm and updated, modern appeal. Gut-renovated in early 2015, the cabin has an open living room with skylights, huge windows to the lake, and a retro fireplace. Three small bedrooms branch off the living room, two rooms with a queen-size bed each, and one with a bunk bed. One updated, white bathroom with shower. The kitchen comes fully equipped with new appliances and opens up to the dining room, which has a wall of windows to the lake. From there, you can exit onto the top deck of the house for the grill or relax on the patio furniture, or the porch swing on the lower deck. The house is built on a huge rock which is also great to lay on during the summers, or head down to the lake dock (just a few footsteps away), and hang out there, take a swim, or grab the canoe or paddle board.
Additional amenities provided include AC/Heating system, Wireless WiFi, fishing poles, canoe, paddleboard (summer) , firelogs (winter), high thread-count sheets, cotton towels, Beekman 1802 Toiletries, outdoor grill, washer/dryer, Apple TV with Netflix, Hulu, and HBO accounts, and most kitchen needs.
The location of the house is perfect. Though quietly nestled in the woods surrounded by nature, it is a mile or two from Interstate-84 which takes you straight to Beacon in 20 minutes. Metro North's Southeast station on the Harlem Line is 10 minutes away so a commute to NYC is very convenient for guests who need to come and go.
The area attractions include Beacon, which besides being a trendy Hudson Valley town right on the Hudson River with amazing shops and restaurants, is home to the world-renowned DIA Art Museum. And not much further from Beacon is the sculpture park Storm King, another must-see for any art-enthusiast. Other nearby Hudson Valley towns include Cold Spring, Carmel, Brewster, Pawling, and Wappinger Falls.
Summer activities in area include some of the best hiking in the country. Breakneck Ridge was named by Newsweek one of the 10 Best Hiking Trails in the Country. Trails.com named it the top hiking trail in North America! The Beacon Reservoir and Fire Tower is a nice hike too. Also, the iconic Appalachian Trail is less than a 10 minute drive from the house. The Hudson Valley area also has waterfalls, farms, horseback riding, and shopping. There is also Splashdown Beach, a water park 15 minutes away. During the winter, besides the frozen lake and beautiful snow-covered surroundings, there is Thunder Ridge Ski Resort 10 minutes away. The Autumn is amazing with the colorful fall foliage every which way and festivals abound. Go apple-picking at the beautiful Fishkill Farms, only ten minutes away. And of course Spring starts us into summer with the snow melting and the leaves and flowers blooming!
Please note, we do not rent to anyone under the age of 25, and have a 5 adult maximum (6 person max, if at least one child is included), as the top bunk of the bunk bed is best for children only. This rental is not suitable for large, party groups.
During the Winter and early Spring months, four-wheel/all-wheel drive is highly recommended to access the cabin. There is a particular hill on the road that is tough otherwise.

Jason purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Jason chose Holmes
We fell in love with lakefront cabin life staying with a friend and enjoying all that their lake had to offer. We were looking for a similar weekend getaway and this lovely house just fell from the Gods it seemed.
What makes this Cabin unique
We've often been told that the house works both for someone who wants a rustic, authentic cabin-feel, as well as for someone who may perhaps not want to leave all modern conveniences aside and appreciates art and design. It's comfortable, cozy, tasteful, and can be as adventurous or peaceful as you make it. It seems to please almost every type of person needing a break from city life.

Second Year; Looking forward to the third
For two years in a row, my partner and I (and our two geriatric brussels griffons) have stayed here to celebrate my birthday. It's the perfect, peaceful getaway for anyone that needs to escape the city for a few days and breathe actual air. We're already talking about our third trip :)
Lakeside cottage in the woods
Cottage is super clean, cozy and chic. Space is really well designed, with excellent views of the lake from the decks and living areas. Cottage is outfitted with everything you need for a relaxing few days in the woods. Private and quiet, a perfect getaway!
Such a fantastic house-- quiet, serene, gorgeous everything. Would certainly stay there again.
Wonderful place, very responsive host
Efficient and well decorated property. Would recommend and would stay here again
Excellent location. Huge windows let you feel part of nature. Small quaint cozy cabin.
We enjoyed our stay a lot. Although the cabin is in the woods and you feel like you are far away from everything, it is only an hour out of the city and 10 minutes from the highway. Cabin was very clean and neat. Jason’s communication is quick and friendly.
Perfect weekend getaway for the family
This is a perfect little cabin for a nice getaway. It's incredibly cozy, with absolutely everything you could need. The lake is beautiful and I only wish the weather had been warmer so we could have explored the surrounding area more! We look forward to visiting again when we can properly enjoy the lake!
