The space

The Space:

This is a 3000 square foot lake house directly on the water. The house has 3 bedrooms and can easily sleep 6 people with a king and two queen size beds. There are 2.5 bathrooms including a master bathroom with a tub and shower. The large kitchen is stocked with everything you need for cooking and/or eating. The house also has two very comfortable living rooms and a dining area. Each floor has a working fireplace. The house gets a lot of natural light from the water-facing windows in every room which are perfect for enjoying the magnificent sunsets.
Cable, phone and wifi are included in your stay...if you can stay out of the water long enough to use them! There is also a laundry room which you are welcome to use.
Pictures are slightly out of date: The house still has the same number of couches and a large dining room table but the ones photographed have been replaced.

The Lake:

Whaley Lake is 252 square acres. The lake is surrounded by private property with one public area for rope swinging. The house has a large multi-level private deck with direct water access. There are kayaks, a canoe, paddle board, fishing poles and floaties for your use and enjoyment on the lake.

The Area:

The Appalachian Trail and other hiking options are only minutes from the house by car. There is food and shopping nearby with several supermarkets to choose from as well as local farm stands. There are also dining out options that are just a short drive away including the award winning McKinney and Doyle.
The Patterson or Pawling Metro-North train is nearby for an easy commute to and from the city.

Another great stay. This is our third summer at Whaley lake and the house just gets better. They have made improvements each summer (new beds, new large BBQ, more inflatables for the lake). Perfect weekend escape, 1h30 train ride from New York City and a short taxi ride from Pawling.

This place has a great view. Loved that they built multiple layers of decks and good size dock. We had a great time doing fishing and canoeing. Barbeque looking at the lake was definitely refreshing. Lakeside park which is 15min by car has a good playground. It's a humble neighborhood and Daniel's place seems like the best one in the hood. We stopped by Dia:Beacon museum on our way back to the city. It's 1.5 hours away from the city, so if you are in upstate already, easier to visit the museum.

Went for New year's weekend with my wife and two daughters. We had an amazing time. The view of the lake is beautiful. House had everything we needed. The fireplaces were just what we needed on the cold winter nights. We would certainly go back!

This house was incredible and the lake was absolutely stunning! Every room has a perfect view. If I could, I would stay forever! There are so many decks and a very large kitchen and dining area that looks out over the lake. The pictures surely don't do it justice. I would recommend getting in before the sun sets, as there are a lot of steps to get down to the home and it can be a little tricky in the dark.

This is a beautiful home in a spectacular location - the perfect nature-escape from the city. The home was very clean and spacious, with spectacular views of the lake. The kitchen is well stocked, and Daniel provided information for grocery stores, restaurants, etc. The kayaks and paddle boards were easy to use, and the house is located in a quiet part of the lake. Internet was fast, TV had all of the necessary hookups and apps, and even on a rainy day the location was perfect. As other guests have mentioned, bring an eye mask if you are sensitive to light. Thanks for a wonderful stay! We will definitely come back with some family next time - this is a great location for a lake-cation!
