Why Jenifer Crosby chose Copake

We have enjoyed it ourselves and found the drama of the space very appealing!

What makes this house unique

We love the views, light and the beauty of the house. The fireplace is very special. The property itself is large and gorgeously landscaped. We even have a vegetable garden which during the season will have vegetables and herbs for the picking! Tennis court along with a basketball hoop

Perfect time with family and friends

  • 5 of 5

Our first time using Home Away and we’re hooked! I must say this property is like a dream vacation come true with a lake right in the backyard and canoes included! Can drift around the beautiful lake whenever we felt like it. Overall very clean and the extra guest house is newly renovated. Will definitely be back in the future!

Serene waterfront location and spacious house

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect for a getaway with friends or family any time of year! Jennifer was very pleasant to work with and gave fantastic suggestions in the area. Between tennis, fire pit, walks / hikes, and the cozy and spacious space, I highly recommend staying here. We most certainly will be back.

Gorgeous views and cozy but spacious house

  • 5 of 5

Loved every second of this place -- the deck overlooking the lake, the fireplace, the spacious bedrooms -- everything. It's perfect for a large family or group of friends. The ability to use the boat to get on the lake is a huge plus. Clean and fantastic -- look forward to returning!

Nearly perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is a home and guest house that has been designed and built to be comfortable and first class. My family had a great time keeping busy using the tennis court, boats and waterfront, terraces BBQ and fire pit. The property manager was very attentive and it was in very good condition.

Like previous renters, our only complaint was the muddy, heavily weed covered shore area but we soon learned that, using one of the 4 boats to reach the nearby float in the clear part of the pond was easy

Stunning, spacious property

  • 4 of 5

The setting of this home is just gorgeous- it sits on a shady, private lot right on Upper Rhoda Pond. There is a large yard for running around and a dock with enough boats for a big group. The house itself is very large and has lots of bathrooms- a must for a multi-family trip! The guest house in particular is obviously new and stunning.

I'm giving the home 4 stars is because the two outdoor showers were not working (one was completely off, and one spurted water horizontally from a pipe). The manager tried to get a plumber in there before our stay but was not able to. Also, we were given the incorrect house code so had some trouble getting in. Lastly; we had the air conditioning on at night, but the house never fully cooled down- it's very large, so that may be a factor! Just good to know if you're very sensitive to heat. In general, our stay was absolutely wonderful!
