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.

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 and peaceful getaway

  • 4 of 5

We were visiting family in the area and appreciated the nice view of Copake Lake and proximity to family. The kitchen allowed us to prepare most of our own meals and shop at the farmers' market in Hillsdale. The mattress in the master bedroom (the one with the half bath attached) was very soft and sagged a bit in the middle. The deck and lakefront are lovely.

Sincere D'Amore- a cozy home away from home

  • 3 of 5

Copake Lake happened to be a central location for three high school friends reuniting. We rented SIncere'D'Amore and it met our needs. Despite the dreary weather, we were able to spend some time out on the deck. The deck was enjoyable and the view was of the lake was nice. The living room was cozy. The kitchen was sufficient, though a bit outdated. Beds were comfortable and inviting. The bathrooms were sufficient for our needs, though we had a leak in the main bathroom. I called the proprietor when this happened, and she responded immediately.

We drove to Barrington and enjoyed perusing the shops there. A recommendation from a local to also explore the shops in Hudson, NY left us wondering why. It was a wasted day....would have preferred to return to Barrington. Had a great lunch at the Barrington Brewery.

Overall, we had a great stay and were very comfortable at Sincere D'Amore.

Owner's Response: I'm happy to hear That the house fully met these renters needs and expectations. but I'm perplexed with only 3 stars for tha rating. to me it would suggest 5 stars. If it was the leak in the bathroom, when checked by a plumber it turned out to be shower spray due to the curtain not being properly positioned by the guests.

Lovely cottage by the lake.

  • 4 of 5

My parents and I spent a week here in September. It was very quiet, although the road does pass between the house and lake and could be busy at other times. The cottage is a simple weekend cottage, nothing fancy but very good value for the price. Exactly as described. Beds were comfy and clean. We had a well-behaved dog with us and it was great to find a place where he was welcome! I would certainly go back there. The owner was very responsive and helpful when we had questions.

Charming Lake House on a beautiful lot with great views!

  • 4 of 5

Our vacation to NY was brought on by my daughter relocating to the Albany area. We had never heard of Copake Lake but we were pleasantly surprised by this beautiful vacation spot. The house is charming and comfortable- well maintained boosting the original wide plank hardwood floors with a cathedral ceiling in the shared space. Mornings on the deck looking out on a natural landscaped property with the small community beach and boat docks across the street. The pictures do not do it justice and the rental price was reasonable. We had to reach out to the owner about the TV cable and he was responsive and gracious. We really enjoyed our trip to Copake Falls and taking a rented boat out on the water to fish. The bathrooms were older but that was the only thing that kept us from giving this great vacation house 5 stars. We would love to return in the fall. Thank you Blaise for a relaxing place to stay during what could have been a stressful move. The Coonleys

Quiet Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Spent a lovely weekend with my Fiancee walking around Copake Lake and enjoying the crisp upstate New York air.

Blaise was very helpful and accommodating, responding to all of my messages in a timely manner.

We're definitely looking forward to traveling back and spending a long weekend during the summer there at some point.
