Wonderful time at the Red Cottage
We enjoyed the time at the Red Cottage, it was perfectly located and is a safe place to stay in.
The deck is big and was nice to sit outside and eat our meals. Beds were comfortable, and lots of natural light in the cottage. My only issue is that the BBQ was not clean when we were there.
Other than that, it was a nice stay.
The Perfect Home for a Beautiful, Relaxing Vacation at Copake Lake!
We had a wonderful week at the Red Cottage! The house was comfortable and the view was beautiful! We had everything we needed to cook our meals at home (the grill was great!) and the outdoor space was perfect for eating and relaxing outside. Kelly was truly amazing! She was always available for questions and incredibly helpful. (Thank you!) Would recommend this house to anyone looking for a comfortable place to spend their vacation!
Perfect lake house stay
nice and clean with all the basics. Beautiful scenery and close to the lake. Would definitely rent again.
Very Accomodating and Comfortable ! Love the lake view and Convenience to Bish Bash Falls
My husband,Aunt,Dad and I stayed at the Red Cottage for 6 days and loved it. My aunt said it was like being at home with all the amenities available. With family in the Chatham and Hillsdale area the convenience was unbeatable. Thanks Kelly
We appreciate your glowing review and greatly look forward to your next visit at The Red Cottage at Copake Lake.
A relaxing getaway
The listing description was accurate. The owner sent us an email to check up on how we were making out.He was also quick in getting back to me when I wrote concerned about algae in the lake.
The cottage was lovely. We really appreciated the AC, as it was a humid couple of days! The beds, comforters and pillows were the most comfortable I have slept on outside of a Hampton Inn! Having a washer dryer was a big plus too. The deck had a great view of the lake. We grilled several of our meals on the gas grill, and enjoyed eating on the big outdoor deck. We had our 2 1/2 year old grandson with us for a few days. He loved the little private beach, and swimming in the lake. On the 2 days when the lake wasn't as pristine as I like (sorry..I'm used to lakes in New Hampshire that are crystal clear all the time) we discovered Taconic State Park, and the great swimming hole and beach area for the little ones. And a 40 foot deep swimming hole for us! We hiked Bash Bish Trail, which was beautiful. We took some road trips to the cool town of Hudson, Great Barrington, and the Berkshires.
If we return to Copake Lake, we'll be sure to get our boating license! More people were boating than swimming. The only suggestion I have would be a better stocked kitchen. Maybe some unbreakable glasses and plates for kids. Although I do not like to cook on vacation, I would have appreciated some spices or condiments on hand. Aside from that, very nice vacation.
Great cottage, great service, great communication
This cottage was exactly same as the pictures on the listing, and perfect for 6 people. Very clean, well maintained, close to Catamount Ski area (12-15 mins), located in front of the Copake Lake. I wish I can rate 10 stars. Highly recommended.
We greatly appreciate your review and look forward to hosting you on your next visit. :-)
