About Inez Foose
I am an artist (muralist and decorative painting) living in NYC. I had the opportunity to create the mural frieze honoring past librarians in the newly built Pine Plains Library on Main Street.
Inez Foose purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why Inez Foose chose Pine Plains
I acquired this cabin from it's original owner who grew up around these lakes in the summer. I was thrilled that it had never been 'upgraded'. I refurbished it while trying to keep true to a vintage 50's lake cabin. I still enjoy combing the local yard sales for items that belong to this venue.
What makes this Cabin unique
Lovely view of lake from front room and also thru the interior window while laying in bed. The sunrise over the lake can be glorious. In the spring and early summer, the frogs croaking and in the fall, geese honking serenade the otherwise quiet setting.

Much welcomed relaxation!
We loved our stay here, & would come back. Location was rustic (could use a firmer bed though..:(..), but perfect for a city getaway. Not any of the tourist trappings. We never left the cabin and enjoyed frequent walks along the lake, grilling and eating outdoors & regular naps.
Communication with owner was excellent! She is very responsive and helpful.
I recommend this place highly!
Perfect nature getaway!
I needed to unplug and this was a great place to do it.
A Vintage Delight
My family and I stayed here on a lovely October weekend. We lucked out with great weather to hang out by the lake. Then we spent cool evenings cozying up by the wood stove listening to the radio and playing board games. Our kids (8 and 13) loved checking out all the vintage details of the cabin, like the travel plates, license plates, old kitchen items, and funny little figurines. Everything was a conversation starter.
It's an easy drive to Red Hook and Rhinebeck, where we did some shopping, eating, and apple-picking. We'll definitely have to come back in warmer weather to take a dip in the beautiful lake.
Our family truly needed a place to just be present with each other and Inez's cabin was the perfect location. The lake is extremely quiet. Inez's canoe allowed our family to explore the lake and take in the beauty. Our children each caught their first fish. The town beach was an easy walk or bike ride. A great spot for swimming and another amazing lake to explore with a kayak. It was easy to drop in with the public boat launch. We were able to leave our kayaks near Inez's canoe when we were not using them. The nature and hiking trails are easy to get to and well marked. We enjoyed not having wifi or television and listening to the local radio stations. And everyone we met in town was extremely helpful and friendly. The cabin had everything we needed and the outside shower was a great way to end some of the most peaceful and relaxing days. We are already talking about going back next summer. The only reason we didnt give the cabin 5 stars was the box springs took a bit to get used to... but Inez does mention it in the description... but if you ask our 8 year old she loved the box spring! I am confident our 8 and 5 year olds would give this cabin a 10!
Perfect location! The cabin is delightful!
Host was available for questions kitchen very well equipped, double bed quite comfortable. Out door shower was unique, The scenery and lake are spectacular!!

Twin Island Lake is one ot three lakes next to Stissing Mountain and is good for boating and fishing. Stissing Lake is larger and deeper and good for swimming and boating with a public boat launch and recreation beach. Thompson Pond is a wildlife refuge. there are hiking trails around Thompson Pond and up Stissing Mountain to the fire Tower. The town of Pine Plains is small and quaint New England. It offers an Historic Inn for dining, several small eateries, a WIFI coffee shop and library and good family owned market with local and organic produce.. Nearby towns, Millerton and Red Hook are larger and offer more; wineries, antique barns, and a “rail trail” in Millerton.
In Rhinebeck, The Dutchess County Fairgrounds has many events during the year.
