Copake Lake Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3miles2 Copake Lake 137 yr old farmhouse w/feel of English Country Cottage24acre

Location is everything- SKI CENTRAL: 8 min to Catamont Ski and Zip line and Park. Butternut 25 min: 50 min to Hunter Mt. ONLY 3 MILES to Copake Lake for dining, boat rentals, award wining golf course and cuisine. Centrally located to all cultural activities. 25 miles to Jimminey Peak in Great Barrington with activities planned all year round! Relax in my charming 1800's Hudson Valley farmhouse with original exposed beams and the feel of English Country Cottage ( some rooms have low ceilings). (Guests say my photos don't do it justice.) Planted on a gorgeous private 24 acre wooded and manicured plot, surrounded by breathtaking panoramic views and bucolic rolling farmlands. Glass panel enclosed "sun room" - dinning room overlooks Bluestone patio covered in a canopy of trees, looking down past the garden and sloping lawn onto the babbling brook, barn and private pond for fishing and skating (no swimming). Cozy and immaculate home where decor is like a B&B. People love to cook in the fully equipped kitchen( with stocked pantry) made of whitewashed barn wood and original slate with two big windows looking onto the gardens and nature's bounty. You cannot beat the location with horses, cows, ducks, chickens for neighbors on my private dirt road. It's about a mile to the Rheinstrom Hill Audubon Sanctuary with a nature learning center and over 1000 acres and 5 beautiful moss covered walking and hiking trails. Property is nestled at the foothills of the Berkshires in Hillsdale (midway bet Hudson NY and Great Barrington MA) (18 miles to either). But no need to even leave the property with hammock, fire pit, netted gazebo and gas grill plus lots of land. Lots of kids activities and events locally. Farm stands everywhere - the area pioneered the farm to table movement. Many choice spots for GREAT FISHING and SWIMMING and GOLFING. There are 9 GREAT GOLF courses locally as well as 3 miniature courses and 2 local driving ranges.ONLY 7 miles to Copake Falls Taconic State Park for hiking on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail (bike rentals available) with beautiful Bash Bish waterfalls or swim in the 40 foot deep Old Ore Pit Pond Swimming Hole in clear water. Rudd Pond -20 miles, or Lake Taconic State Park - 6 miles. Only 2 mile drive to Taconic High School with tennis courts, state of the art Jr. Olympic indoor pool and workout room. 25 minutes to town of Millerton for the Trevor private zoo, 20 minutes to Great Barrington Ma for jazz, theater, shopping, fine dining, 30 minutes to Stockbridge for theater, Lee -outlet for shopping, Lenox for Shakespeare. Many attractions, antiquing, outdoor activities, culture, and festivals. 20 minutes to Hudson NY for outstanding restaurants, entertainment, big box stores shopping, movies, and The Helsinki Club. 50 minutes to TANGELWOOD or Albany. Great antiquing and restaurants locally. Enjoy Summer Theater at the MacHayden Theater, Jacob's Pillow, Shakespeare Festival, Stockbridge Theater, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Music Mountain, New Roeliff Jansen Library art exhibits, performances and special events.

Great weekend at natures way!

  • 5 of 5

my family stayed over Presidents' Day and we had a great time! It was frigidly cold but the house was cozy and warm. We enjoyed skiing at catamount and cooking and sitting by the fire!

2nd Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay SO much this summer. The owner is very responsive and thoughtful, so we decided to visit again this fall. The home is just lovely in both seasons. Fall foliage is superb and the Farmer's Market nearby was still in season. We spent time in nearby Hudson NY and also across the border in MA -- equidistant to both. Access to the lap pool at the nearby high school is a big plus for us. The house did not get too cold as I had feared. Great property!

Owner's Response: Rachel and husband come back for a quiet get away without the kids and I was thrilled to have them back. I bought them flowers and a bottle of wine. I was so happy that the foliage was at their peak. They are a lovely family and left my home immaculate. I welcome them back anytime.

Serene spot in Columbia County

  • 5 of 5

This house has a lovely view, front and back, and great outdoor seating space. Charming house with character, a roomy and convenient kitchen and two sitting rooms. The owner is eager to make renters feel welcome. It's an excellent spot if you're looking for a peaceful retreat that is close to good food, culture and hiking.

Relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

I spent a long weekend here with my husband and toddler. The house was great, really comfortable. The kitchen was amazingly well stocked, there's a great grill outside that we used each night and a fire pit which was pre-set up for us. Vicki was there to meet us at the house and show us around. She gave us great recommendations of things to do in the area, and even set out a kiddie pool for my daughter. We had a great weekend at Nature's Way and hope to stay there again next summer!

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Spent the 4th of July weekend here with a group of friends. The farmhouse is classic, well-maintained, and had an awesome kitchen. Loved the nearby farmer's market and hiking (we especially enjoyed the Audubon Society property just up the road -- beautiful!). Vicki (the owner) was extremely helpful and accommodating. Would stay here again without hesitation.
