Quaint cozy cabin located in the Hudson Valley, approx 90 miles north of NYC on our 11 acre property on a 125 acre lake at the base of Stissing Mountain.

We use the main house many weekends in the summer but the guest cabin (see photo located down the driveway from the main house walking distance to the lake) is available rent from early May through Halloween.

The space

Stissing Lake is a gorgeous swimming lake. You can swim from the dock into the open waters to the swimming platform which is shared with the main house.

Since we do have vegetable garden, flower garden and a dozen chickens from time to time, we have learned from past experience it might not be for guests with severe allergies. The cabin does not have heat and is closed during winter.

Guest access

We have a couple kayaks, a canoe, fishing rods, swimming platform, dock, a couple adult and children's bikes, wooden swingset, all part of the rental package shared with the main house.

Interaction with guests

We have a caretaker cottage on the property and are available for recommendations and questions as needed.

Other things to note

The cabin is located on an 11 acre estate with all amenities shared with the main house located down the driveway.

Antoinette’s guesthouse is the perfect destination for an upstate, escape-the-city getaway. We can’t say enough about how charming and beautiful her property really is. The lake, grounds, gazebo...all gorgeous and very “insta worthy” of you catch my drift. The outdoors aside, the guest house is cozy, with a kitchen that allowed us to prepare two wonderful dinners and brunch to boot. All for four people. It is well equipped enough for serious cooking. The beds were comfortable and clean, as were the bathrooms. The cabin was all in all great. Take my word for it though, once you get to Antoinette’s property, the last thing you’re going to want to do is stay inside. Would definitely recommend to close friends without hesitation.

Beautiful and well-maintained home. And an absolutely lovely property in a beautiful area. Having private lake access was amazing for our kids. And so helpful to have left out kids size lifejackets and some bikes for our use. We hope to make it back again someday.

Pine plains is a cute little town, the place itself is cozy, and Antoinette is a pro. Head farther north or west if you are in search of more swimable lakes.

Stissing lake is a great location for spending a long weekend away from the city. This cabin is very comfortable and has a fully equipped kitchen. There are a lot of activities to choose, from kayaking/canoeing/swimming in the lake to hiking up the Stissing mountain to amazing views! The small town can be explored on a bike and you can choose from the many bikes available at the property. This was a great find and we will definitely be visiting again.
