Perks for the Parents

This cozy 3-bedroom house on Copake Lake includes plenty for young children (including wagons for hauling toys down to the lake) and a light and social open concept interior. Under 20 miles from Hudson, NY and Great Barrington, MA, there are countless attractions in the local area including hiking, dining, shopping, cultural institutions and more throughout the Hudson Valley and Berkshire areas. Take the kids hiking with a Kelty Kids hiking backpack for babies and toddlers (provided), and travel light: plenty of toddler/baby kit is included.

Why Kids Love it

There is great provision for young children including: a standard crib plus sheets, 2 pack’n’plays plus sheets, toddler utensils and dinnerware, high chairs, bouncers, NextStep seats on toilets, outlet covers and a changing pad plus diaper genie. There is also a large selection of toys, books and musical instruments, plus black out curtains for a good night’s sleep. There is a portable play yard/ play pen for playing on lawn or at waterfront area, wagons for hauling kids and toys down to the lake and sleds for winter playing.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 days. This house does not have stairgates; there is a flight of steps down to the garden. Young children should be watched in the garden and inside around the wood-burning fire. A double sofa bed in the lounge can be used, along with a double air bed on consultation with the hosts. The nearest supermarket is 6 miles away; restaurants and stores are a short drive away.

About the Location

The house is on the Route 7 side of Copake Lake, an 8-minute drive from Copake, in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains. It is a mile from the public golf course at Copake Lake Country Club and close to ski resorts at Catamount Ski Area and Ski Butternut. There is a family-friendly restaurant, The Greens, on the other side of the lake, and a lunch diner in downtown Copake nearby. The area is approximately 2.5 hours’ drive from New York City. Along with the lake itself, there are some great nature trails to explore, including Bash Bish Falls.

Accommodation Details

This 3-bedroom house is family-friendly with various sleeping arrangements possible. It centers on a main open concept sky lit living room, dining room and kitchen. The screen porch is perfect for warm weather lounging, and has an additional dining area and living room. The wood-burning stove is perfect for cozy winter relaxing.

Style Notes

Country chic. This countryside home makes the most of its location, with a stunning blue building looking out over a lawned garden and woodlands. Inside, a cozy living room with wood-burning fire is ideal for winter nights, while the screened porch offers somewhere to relax as a family in the summer. We love the original wood beams in the main living space, the string lights in the porch to add some pretty to summer nights, and the great location.
