Lake life isn’t just for summer. Spend the winters in this Patterson cottage and downhill ski and snowboard all you want. 

Putnam Lake in eastern Putnam County, NY is known for its community of summer-dwelling residents and warm-weather-related fun. There’s no reason, however, you can’t enjoy the lake during the winter months, too, especially in this two-bedroom cabin with all the comforts of a full-time home.

After you’ve spent the day downhill skiing, snowboarding, or snowtubing at nearby Thunder Ridge Ski Area, cozy up to the living room wood stove surrounded by white-washed brick. The 832-square-foot bungalow was built in the 1930s, but its bright-and-open scheme feels fresh and up-to-date.

Includes two bedrooms, wood floors throughout, and a full bath with tub, shower, and updated fixtures.

The stainless steel kitchen is small but mighty, with a farmhouse sink and a digital fridge…

…and, when summer arrives, take dinner out on the front deck facing Putnam Lake just across the road. As a member of the Putnam Lake community, you’ll have access to two private bathing beaches, and, in the winter, go ice skating.

Located mere steps from the NY/CT border, Putnam Lake is just an hour’s drive north from NYC, but its rural nature makes it feel you’re in the wilderness…but with Chinese take-out and a bagel place one mile away in Putnam Lake hamlet.
