Creekside Cottage Close to Lake Taghkanic State Park, $359,900

This Columbia County cottage comes with its own mini-cottage overlooking a waterfall and creek.

There’s only one thing better than a cottage on a babbling creek, and that’s two cottages on a babbling creek. Let’s take a look at the main cottage first, which has undergone a full renovation that includes an open floor plan and hardwood floors throughout.

Additionally, the kitchen’s received an upgrade and now comes with stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. If the small dining area isn’t enough for your summertime dinner parties, the large attached deck should do the trick.

The 2,276-square-foot interior includes three bedrooms total, with a master suite also providing access to the deck…

…and, two more bedrooms were built downstairs at ground level with access to a screened-in porch. The entire house has been equipped with central air conditioning, as well as a full house generator in case of power outages.

Looking to give your income a bump with a short-term rental, or in need of guest accommodation? Spruce up the 440-square-foot, one-bedroom cottage that also looks out over the backyard stream.

Situated on 1.5 acres, the property offers a slice of idyllic Hudson Valley living surrounded by fruit trees and lush vegetation. Wile away your summer days in the shade, meandering across the foot bridge over the stream…

…or, indulge in the ultimate Hudson Valley Dream Cottage Checklist Item: Your own private swimming hole fed by a waterfall.

When you’re ready to go off-campus, head just a few minutes north to the Lake Taghkanic State Park to hang out by the water or have a picnic. The Taconic State Parkway is also nearby, which provides a direct route to NYC two hours away by car. Rhinebeck village, Hudson city, and the Rip Van Winkle Bridge over to the west side of the Hudson River are all within 30 minutes of the property, too.
