About the property

New and direct lake front! w 126 feet of shoreline on private spring fed lake

Private Lakefront Cottage on Spring Fed Lake is brand new construction, as well as new to the rental market -- everything is new and finally finished!! We are approximately two hours from New York City and approximately 10 minutes to Bard College and we will be open year round! The Lily Pad Cottage at Spring Lake is perched over lake with panoramic views of 126 feet of shoreline the lake is fed by natural cold springs. (Do see above the video link of the property). There is a long tree lined private road and the Lily pad is the first cottage on the right -- surrounded by 100 yr old trees. There is a lot of calm and nature... If you are looking for romance, peace and quiet or to just get away, this would be it!

We are excited for the new steps to lake and deck by shore that are now complete! and are beautifully made from wood from Maine!! Our goal was to implement without compromising the beauty of the natural landscape!

The cottage is 864 square feet with a covered front porch as well as a covered back porch that is a spacious 280 square ft. There are two kayaks, paddles and fishing poles for your use as well as vinyl boat and two seater float.

There are two roomy bedrooms, one with a king size bed and cathedral ceiling and fan and the other with a queen size bed and both with closets. There are extra sheets and blankets. There is one bathroom with cast iron tub and tile shower combination, plenty of towels and beach towels. The living room has a cathedral ceiling and fan with windows abound with a french door that leads to the back porch where there is ample seating and lovely rocking chairs. The kitchen has a vaulted ceiling and plenty of storage with white shaker style cabinetry and quartz countertop along with full size stainless appliances and washer/dryer.

There is a log right by the shore line the turtles use quite often. There is also a cute duck family that lives on the lake as well as Canadian geese new babies and visiting swans, cranes deer, beavers, foxes, hawks - nature abounds! This lake is unique to the area as the water is always beautiful due to the springs that well up from the bottom of the lake. Spring Lake connects via a small bridge to a smaller lake on the other end - thus the true name is Spring Lakes. The Lily Pad is a great artist retreat or couples retreat, wonderful for a single person etc. also for a family with infant(s).

The quaint town of Red Hook is approximately 10 minutes away and Rhinebeck approximately 15 minutes away. Milan is a small hamlet very close to the Taconic Parkway and Elizaville. Red Hook and Rhinebeck offer antiquing, shopping, dining etc. Bard College is a stones throw. Omega Institute, Clermont State Park in Germantown right on the Hudson River is lovely all year long and a favorite along with the town of Millbrook and Woodstock which is across the river. There are a few farms nearby as well with farm stands. Seasonal picking is available at Gregg farm. Bash Bish Falls is a hidden gem great for hiking and a nearby favorite.

We are on the same private road as The Painted Turtle and the Fox Den vacation rentals.
