About the Owner

Our family has spent wonderful summers in the Copake Lake area for decades. MY parents owned and summered in The Red Cottage and enjoyed the wonderful summer life of the Copake Country Club golf community.

We recently completely renovated and refurnished The Cottage to be used as a summer rental property.

The Perfect Home for a Beautiful, Relaxing Vacation at Copake Lake!

  • 5 of 5

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!

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

A relaxing getaway

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful experience! A great, restful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was perfect for our family. Our young sons enjoyed playing soccer and baseball on the large front lawn, playing in the sand on the little nearby beach, and of course, the swimming in the surprisingly clean and clear lake. My husband and I enjoyed the view and peaceful evenings on the back deck. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and had everything we could need. We loved the area. We rented a pontoon boat from the marina and enjoyed swimming in the lake every day! Overall, we had a wonderful experience at the red cottage! We will be back! Thank you!!
