Rustic cabin by Twin Island Lake, Pine Plains, NY
Sitting on quiet Lake Road and nestled in the woods, my rental built in 1950 is fashioned after a vintage lake cabin. It offers a well equipped kitchen (no dishwasher), a bath with a large claw footed tub and an outdoor hot and cold shower. There are two bedroom areas; one with a single bed and trundle, the other a double bed. The front sitting room/kitchen area has great views of the lake with an over head ceiling fan (no air conditioning) and a wood burning stove for cooler temps. The property includes Lake front with dock and canoe.
Swimming in the lake out front is possible in the Spring and Fall. But during the summer, there is an over abundance of water lilies. At that time, it is good for boating and fishing. There are 3 bodies of water connected and the next called Stissing lake is deeper and offers good swimming options at the beach and the other public entry located on hiking and swimming map which I provide.
The scenic hiking trails are around Thompson Pond, the third in the chain of lakes and up Stissing Mountain to the fire tower.
The town of Pine Plains is small and quaint New England. It offers a Historic Inn for dining, several other small eateries and a WIFI coffee shop. The food market, Pecks, is family owned and carries local produce as well as some organic.
This is an owner shared cabin; I may be there when it is not lent out and keep a permanent bureau and closet with my things.
No land line, TV, or WIFI. Good cell reception. WIFI available at the library or in town at Pine Plains Platter. There is a suitcase of board games, puzzles, cards and plenty of mystery books.
Not winterized, the cabin is closed down in October and opened again by June. Book ahead. Discounted weekly rate.
