Description of the Valatie vacation home rental
This home is for relaxing. Light reflections from the water dance off the walls and ceilings. Eagles and herons fish outside your windows. Your outdoor living spaces overlook the 375-acre lake and let you relax with fabulous, lake and mountain vistas. Swimming, fishing and boating are just steps from your door.

This is a 4-season lakefront home. The upper floor offers 2 bedrooms, one with a glass sliding door that opens to a large screened in porch and private views of the lake. A newly remodeled kitchen with granite countertops, double oven and all new appliances, a newly remodeled bath with pedestal sink and large stall shower, a living room with a wood burning fireplace and reading area and a dining room that opens onto a large deck with majestic lake views. Walls of windows bring the lake to you whether you're inside or out.

The lake level offers 2 bedrooms, a newly remodeled full bath with shower and tub and a second kitchen. A living room with wood burning fireplace and a widescreen TV provides a movie house experience and seats 10. There is central air conditioning throughout the house. The location of the bedrooms on each floor provides total privacy and separate living spaces when needed.

There is plenty of off road parking and the house has 2 single occupant kayaks and 1 twin allowing for 4 people to be in the water at once. Noodle flotation devices and rafts are also available to you. Fishing rods are also provided (Large and Smallmouth Bass, Walleye and Panfish). You can fish right off the dock in the backyard.

The lake bottom right off the stairs lading into the lake is firm and shallow enough to stand. There is a swimming dock a short swim from the shore. Lounge chairs are at water's edge and off course you'll have 2 outdoor living on the deck by the grill and outdoor dining table and another in the screened porch so you don't have to worry about the weather.
