This Scandinavian-style lakefront cottage in eastern Columbia County, NY offers proximity to the Berkshires just across the border.
Looking for a New York-based home that is close to the majestic mountains of western Mass? Then you’ll want to hang out with us on Upstater this week as we head toward the eastern side of the Hudson Valley for a little Berkshires goodness, starting with this well-crafted, shingle-sided cottage on the shores of Queechy Lake.
Situated in the rural town of Canaan, NY near the Massachusetts border, this 950-square-foot lake house has a surprising amount of room due to efficient use of interior space. And, you may not believe this given its pristine condition, but the cottage is around 100 years old. Thanks to meticulous care and upgrades throughout the years, it looks up-to-date.
The first floor includes a living room that offers access to a sunroom facing the lake, as well as a formal dining room with built-in corner hutch, and a roomy kitchen, all with wood floors throughout, plus a woodstove to warm you during the winter.
On the second floor are four bedrooms – one of which is small and might be more suited for a home office – plus a full bathroom.
Views of the lake from virtually every room are guaranteed…
…and the deck provides the most impressive views of all, complete with the Berkshires providing a beautiful backdrop. The .3-acre property also comes with an old barn ripe for a repurposing.
