Welcome to the quiet confines of Copake Lake 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 dress...er 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.
It's a wonderful place to spend a fun-filled weekend with the kids or a romantic weekend for two.Read more

My husband and I along with our two grandchildren spent Columbus Day weekend at this gorgeous home across from Copake Lake. Blaise made the whole process prior to our arrival so easy, and he was readily available with information and directions. The house is lovely with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fireplace and all the amenities you will need. The house was clean and well stocked, and had a lovely deck for star-gazing. Our grandchildren loved having their own rooms with big beds, and enjoyed time playing in the yard. There is plenty to do in the area, and we found a wonderful family owned restaurant nearby to enjoy a meal out. We will definitely be returning!

We live in Brooklyn and escaping to Blaise's lake house was just what we needed. Our dog loved the property and the lake. Sitting on the hammock on the huge front lawn with a view of the lake was so relaxing. The house is simple, clean and cozy. The mattress we slept on was very comfortable as well. I would definitely go back!
I recently rented this home and the description is spot on. The views are spectacular, and the lake is directly in front of the house, featuring a huge yard big enough for a family gathering. The house is very warm and inviting with 3 well appointed bedrooms. A beautiful golf course is located at the other end of the lake about 3 miles a way, which also features one of the best restaurant in the area. Overall a great weekend with plans to rent the home again in October.
