About 216 Lake Shore Drive

Monthly August-September rental, furnished with inground pool, for this well-loved and tended antique colonial in its own garden setting. The comfortable three-bedroom house has enlarged living room and wood-burning fireplace, updated kitchen, sunroom with pull out bed/first floor bath, and central air too. Outside, being on the property is a glorious and private experience. Some have called it “magical.” The house sits high above a dammed lake that is nevertheless easily accessible for kayaking. A former designer-owner created two outdoor rooms, one a sunken garden and the other a pond with paved surround. Ancient trees offer shaded dining. Peonies, wisteria and other blooms abound. Down the hill and downstream of the waterfall is a furnished woodland gazebo, for private hours of reading, relaxing, daydreaming, and more. Tucked away also in the middle of leafy privacy is a heated concrete swimming pool with its own covered porch. Through the stone pillars, down the long driveway, here is truly a world apart. Six minutes from the Taconic Parkway. Available July 30-September 30, 2021; no other rental periods available.
