This week on Upstater, we’re exploring cottages on the market in Hudson Valley, and this Columbia County lake cottage for sale at an affordable price comes with a miniature surprise: Its very own Tiny House. That means when your jealous friends and relatives come to visit you in your cottage on Copake Lake, they will have their own little guest cottage.
In spite of the fact that most lake cottage communities are not known for their privacy, this property on a no-thru street off-the-main-drag location with vegetation as a buffer between the .35 acre lot and adjacent lots. The proverb holds: Good fences (and, in this case, trees) make good neighbors. This c.1957 home is suitable for year-round living.
The 823 square foot interior includes vaulted ceilings with wooden beams, wood floors, walls of windows, three bedrooms, washer/dryer, and an open floor plan. An attached deck offers views of the lake, and the shared dock provides a space to park your watercraft. You’re living on a lake, so it’s time to get yourself a boat.
Cove Colony is situated on the western shore of the lake, located about 2 hours from NYC.
