Long Pond Lake House couples the leisurely country ease of a lake house with convenient access to the city and nearby trendy Upstate towns. Across the pond from the world renown Omega Institute for Holistic Studies, guests can enjoy a 30 minute walk over to enjoy yoga, meditation & their highly regarded cafe.
Nestled amongst quiet lakefront community neighbors, this modern lake house features a dock, kayak and canoe for exploring the small, rustic lake. Though swimming is certainly allowed, watch out for the lily pads - you may need to paddle past them before swimming with ease.
Upon walking inside, guests pass through the small but well-stocked kitchen and are immediately greeted by sunny, wall-to-wall windows overlooking the lake. The open plan dining and living room features a classic wood stove perfect for cozy fall and winter evenings spent with family and friends. Just off of the living and dining area is a tidy office with a full-sized pull-out sofa, sleeping two.
The full bathroom (with bathtub) just off the kitchen also opens into an en suite Queen bedroom filled with natural sunlight. Continue upstairs to find another comfortable en suite Queen bedroom with a bathroom (with shower).
The house if full of great details, from indoor window frames creating airy division between rooms to a wonderful collection of carefully selected furniture pieces, and more. The space has been designed in a way that really promotes conversation, reading good books, writing, cooking - different vignettes all under one roof.
In the homeowner’s words, “ I was immediately taken over by [the property’s] beauty and serenity, and realized how magical that landscape would be each season…actually each day…actually each minute! As every time the light and wind changes, it creates a new image - all of them looking like special paintings. I felt how healing and also entertaining that space could be. From that moment on, the decision was made.”
Long Pond Lake House is an ideal getaway from the city. At just a little over 2 hours north of New York, guests are just 10 minutes from the center of Rhinebeck, with its up and coming foodie restaurants, shops and bars. The property is also perfectly located for adventures, with short drives to world-class hiking, antiquing, brunch and pubs. A short 2 mile walk lands you at the beloved Omega Institute for Holistic Studies: a large campus offering workshops, retreats, professional training and wellness conferences.
