About the property

Modern and minimal cottage in country setting

Spark your inner creativity at this serene lakefront cottage in bucolic Rhinebeck with exceptional water views. This modern cottage underwent a recent complete renovation, yet still holds all the rustic charm of a a 1950's lake bungalow. Bright and stylish space with minimal aesthetic, with direct water access and expansive lake vistas. Less than 2 hour drive from NYC, 5 min drive to Omega Institute, and 8 min drive to trendy Rhinebeck Village where you can find a multitude of dining options.

Rebuilt in 2015, this 900 sq ft cottage has lake views from all rooms. The house features a modern open kitchen; a living/dining area and back deck that overlook Silver Lake and are oriented towards the setting sun. The living area has a (currently non-functioning) fireplace with original pine cottage cabinetry. The two bedrooms are flooded with light and also have views of the lake, a full bathroom, washer and dryer closet, white painted oak floors throughout & an optional loft space with pull-out couch. There are many mature trees, flowering bushes and natural landscaping with perennial flowers. Reliable WiFi, NEST thermostat and Apple TV provided. Guests have access to a special pink row boat with oars (in Spring, Summer + Early Fall) and propane BBQ grill. You can also fish on the lake!

Perfect for Omega Institute guests, or New Yorkers looking for a peaceful relaxing weekend!

About The Owner

I am an architect living in NYC. I am originally from Southern California. My partner, Angela, a photographer, and I love traveling around the world and staying at unique homes in interesting settings. We love farmer's markets, antiques, and podcasts!

Why The Owner chose Rhinebeck

My partner and I have stressful lives in NYC. We have been searching for the perfect upstate weekend escape for 2 years. We had seen about 30+ properties, in various upstate towns. None of them felt right. When we saw this property, we were overcome with a sense of utter tranquility. Having a direct view of the lake, and being able to go out on the lake from our backyard, was so calming. Also, we loved the proximity to all the wonderful restaurants in Rhinebeck, and the ability to take the train to Rhinecliff.
