Description of this Fishkill Vacation Rental House
Charming, delightful, restful, refreshing--all comments that describe the stone and cedar-sided cottage on a 100 acre estate. Completely private with great views looking across a beautiful mowed meadow, this cottage is perfect to relax, and unwind. Your own drive winds alongside the lake--always a great view! It is a short flat walk (200
yards) to the 5 acre lake, where you can swim, fish, or enjoy a boat ride. We loan floating chairs for a gentle float around the lake. A paddleboat or rowboat are also available for your use. There are trails through the woods, and mountain hikes, or benches around the lake for a relaxing time with a great book. The country cottage is two story, but both floors are ground level! There is easy access to enjoy the outdoors through sliding doors on either level. Level 1 has a full kitchen with table for 2 for coffee or menu planning, a dining area for 6, and the living room. Large windows in the living room give you a constant view of the stream just across the gravel driveway. The second level is accessed by an open staircase and has a bedroom on either end of the cottage with a shared hall bathroom. There is an sitting alcove just inside the upstairs sliding door leading out to a 12` x 27` covered porch. Mornings and evenings are a terrific time to be on the porch, and enjoy the 10 acre open meadow before you.
