Now that spring is here (and it is here!) people begin to think about summer and the beauty of having a country retreat.   We have the perfect place for you on Indian Lake. A private, 205-acre lake along the border of Sharon CT and Millerton NY, Indian Lake offers swimming, fishing, and boating.  The southern and eastern shores of the lake are bordered by Sharon Road and private homes. The western shore is home to the private lake community, Indian Lake Estates. Our latest listing offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and is nestled on a country road surrounded by farmland.  Many people know the way. It’s on the “road that goes to Daisi Hill Farm” – a local farm known for its excellent plants, local vegetables, petting zoo and the infamous corn maze and pumpkin catapult.

This house has great sunsets, magnificent views, and beach/lake rights to Indian Lake. What could be better! The first-floor living area has an open Chalet feel and westward views of open fields and rolling hills. There is a fabulous three-season room for entertaining that includes a BBQ area, hot tub, and sitting area. An added perk — a heated workshop! Property includes deeded lake rights with a boat landing and a common-area tennis court.   And it’s nicely situated in between nearby Millerton and Amenia, NY, and Sharon, CT.

Plenty to do in the Litchfield Hills and Hudson Valley in the summer including walking and biking on the Harlem Valley Rail Trail, swimming in the local lakes and ponds, antiquing in the quaint towns and Villages, and some of the best fine dining.  Not to mention, delicious farm-to-fork restaurants sprinkled throughout the area. Got a free evening? Why not catch a show at the Sharon Playhouse, The Moviehouse or Four Brothers Drive-In. Play a little late afternoon or evening golf at The Links at Union Vale, the Greens at Copake or Under Mountain Golf Course.  Grab a kayak and drop it in on Indian Lake. You’re guaranteed to see a blue heron and possibly even an eagle soar overhead. There’s nothing like escaping to the country so let Dutchess Country Realty show you the way!
