Sincere D'Amore - 'A Love You Never Have To Question'

Welcome to the quiet confines of Sincere D'Amore nestled in the heart of the Taconic Mountain Range in Columbia County, NY, bordering Massachusetts' Berkshire County.

You wake up an hour past dawn, grab a cup of java and sit out on your private deck that overlooks shimmering Copake Lake, a 365 acre multiuse lake. Maybe you're contemplating your 10:00 a.m. tee-off at the Copake Lake Country Club or landing that 'Lunker' largemouth bass that got away. You could be planning the route of your 10 mile bike trek through the rolling farmland down to Bash-Bish Falls State Park or making a list of antique shops to hit in search of that perfect dresser for your bedroom.

About 2 hours from New York City and 2.5 hours from Boston, the house is situated on ½ acre of land with 12 feet of sliding glass doors and skylights that overlook the lake and brings the foliage right into you’re living room. There are antique grade pine floors throughout the house which is fully equipped with linens, towels, outdoor grill and all the kitchen accoutrements to create that culinary masterpiece.

We have also provided all the conveniences of home such as air conditioning, a central heating system, cable TV, CD player, DVD with a home theatre system, and wireless internet for your laptop. For the final touch there's even glass door wood stove for keeping warm on those romantic evenings. The house sleeps up to 6 in the 3 antique furnished bedrooms. There's 1 and 1/2 baths.

Sincere D'Amore is a wonderful place to spend a fun-filled weekend with the kids or a romantic weekend for two.

Guestbook comments from the owner

When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, that's amore (Sincere D'Amore) !

Dear Blaise,

We would like to thank you for everything. The house was so cozy and warm with the wood burning stove (our favorite). It's in a beautiful location surrounded with birch trees (brian's favorite) and capped with starry nights. The best winter spot we've ever stayed in! The location was perfect for a getaway from NYC. Copake lake was frozen and we saw many people on snow mobiles and ice fishing. Can't wait to see it in the Spring time on the golf course, so we will be in touch!!! Sorry we forgot to leave tips for the cleaning crew, we didn't realize till we got home. How may we reach them so that we can send them a tip?

We will write a review on the website so that many people may enjoy the true gifts and pleasures sincere d'amore has to offer. Once again, thank you!

Great location right across the road from the lake

  • 4 of 5
The owner was very friendly and accommodating. Since it was offseason, we were pretty much the only folks around, which was nice for us and my 2 dogs. The listing description was spot on: nothing fancy, but 3 clean and comfortable bedrooms, a spacious comfortable living room with a great glass door wood stove, kitchen with dishwasher, nice big deck with gas grill overlooking the lake. Great location about 5 miles from 2 nice little towns: Hudson NY and Great Barrington MA, both with nice shops and restaurants. And don't miss Olana, the wonderful estate of Hudson River School landscape painter Frederich Church, right near Hudson. Beautiful mansion and fabulous Hudson River views. I'd definitely recommend this listing and would definitely go back. My only caveat was that the bathroom was not the greatest, but it was a very small inconvenience and the only reason I didn't award 5 stars. And having the extra half-bath was nice.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry the renter did not feel the bathroom wasn't "the greatest". There are a few tiles that have been poorly repaired (by the but I make sure the whole house is super clean and up to my fussy standards.

Everything you need for a perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing experience at Sincere d'Amour! We traveled here for a West Point graduation and definitely was our home away from home. This property has everything you need. Comfy beds, lots of windows, fully equipped kitchen, grill, wood burning stove, movies, plus a washer and dryer!
We have two toddlers who enjoyed eating every meal with us on the large patio over looking the lake. Huge front yard where the kids could play as well as a hammock to relax in.
We fished everyday from the dock and also swam out to the lake platform! Only 15 minutes away you will also find the beautiful Lake Taghkanic State Park where you can enjoy the sandy swimming beach and playgrounds.
We would definitely suggest this lake house for family fun or a romantic getaway!

Working on booking a return trip!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a great time at this lovely place. The place was well-equipped and we enjoyed the bbq overlooking the lake. The kitchen had everything you needed to cook and entertain and there were several games and puzzles should you decide to stay inside. We were two couples and a baby and we had ample space for all of us. Looking forward to a return trip!

Perfectly Relaxing and Tranquil

  • 5 of 5
Sincere D'Amore is truly the perfect getaway spot. The only disappointing part about the whole week was leaving. We loved S'incere D'amour and it loved us back. Everything was perfect including Blaise's flexibility and kindness.

Sincere D'Amore offered our family of 5 (3 children) a home away from home. If you are looking to get away from the stressful routine of every day life, this property offers the majestic beauty and tranquility that nature has to offer.

We will definitely rent from Blaise again. The cottage contained everything we needed, which made packing much easier. I highly recommend Sincere D'Amore for a family trip, romantic getaway, or a girls' weekend.
