Columbia County Cape Cod Cottage in the Woods, $249,500

How picture-perfect is this little Cape Cod cottage hidden in the woods of Rural Columbia County? We love the way it looks in the autumn, and we imagine it looks just as lovely wearing a crown of green in the spring and summer.

Situated in northeastern Columbia County near East Chatham, the 2.07 property is truly off the beaten path with a long driveway and a healthy treeline separating it from Route 5. The 1300 square foot interior has a vintage Colonial feel with wood floors, brick fireplace + wood mantle in the living room, separate dining room, and an additional fireplace on the second floor. Also includes three bedrooms, two full baths, and some new features like thermopane windows, a new furnace, a new hot water heater, and a new roof. Bonuses galore!

Are you thinking vacation home? We were thinking, that, too. Nearby attractions to sweeten the deal include the village of Chatham, Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in MA, and the Hudson River about 30 minutes away. Hop on the Taconic Parkway, and you’ll be in NYC in about 2.5 hours.
