Photos and Description of the Holmes vacation chalet rental

Chalet, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

Exhale with Superb Lake views just 90 minutes from New York City! Pull in at the Pawling Train Station and take a cab to the Chalet!

Impressive, 2400 square foot, five bedroom, three bathroom, three-story, chalet-style home on Whaley Lake in Dutchess County, New York. Beautifully furnished and just 90 minutes drive from Midtown New York City.

TRY THIS: A Working Vacation,

With your family spending the week at the Lake, it is a short 10 minute drive from the Chalet to Metro North Railroad in Patterson. Take The Metro North directly to Grand Central Station departing at 7:02am and arriving Grand Central at 8:27am. Return in the evening to your relaxed family, departing Grand Central Station 5:59pm, arrive Patterson 7:27pm. Then, after a working week, enjoy the weekend with your family at beautiful Whaley Lake.

Regardless of the time of year, the Chalet offers a tranquil setting to relax and unwind. Recline on the spacious, second-story surrounding deck, take to the water in the canoes, or in winter, enjoy the warmth of the wood-burning fire and watch the snow fall.

The Lake house offers a very spacious vacation and entertaining environment, ideal for families with children of all ages, a group of friends or a romantic getaway for two. From the first hint of light in the morning to the colorful glows of the dusk sky, the exhilarating, elevated views of the pristine lake and its surroundings will impress.


Third Floor:

The Master Bedroom is a highlight of the Chalet. This large bedroom with private en suite, a skylight and its own bathroom, offers a view that will take your breath away at sunrise, and make sleeping difficult until after dark. The third floor also has two additional double bedrooms and a large separate bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath and sky-lights. Hardwood floors throughout.

Main Level:

Beautiful stone fireplace with large wood burning stove, exposed hardwood beams throughout, full length windows from every angle looking out over the lake. Spacious fully functional kitchen with condiments, large dining / living area leading out onto the very spacious balcony, overlooking the lake.

One double bedroom, and large separate bathroom with spacious glass shower complete this level.
