Our home

We are in the town of Putnam Valley. Our multi-level contemporary home overlooks a lovely lake where we enjoy canoeing & kayaking. We have a large wood deck and our own small beach area with a dock, patio and grill. The house has 3 bedrooms on the upper level with a balcony off the master bedroom. The main level has a bright open floor plan; a large living room with fireplace, family room with great lake views and a sofabed, dining room and a small but efficient kitchen with new appliances. The lower level has the laundry room and garage. There is a full bath on each level. It is comfortable & relaxing and feels like a vacation house to us all year.

Who we are

  1. Challis is a special education teacher who has been working with multiply handicapped kids for 25+ years. Peter is a physical therapist who has worked with similar kids as well as adults. We both like active vacations, especially involving water sports (scuba, snorkel, kayak, canoe) and camping, and enjoy travel to all types of areas. Our cat, Oreo, would need to be fed, but we can arrange for neighbors to do this if you go away for overnights.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Fahnestock State Park with hiking trails including the Appalachian Trail is just a couple of miles away. It's 15 minutes drive to local shopping areas, 20 minutes to the Hudson River and just over an hour to midtown Manhattan. Our lake does not allow motorboats, but we have canoes & kayaks and a rowboat (with a small electric motor for fishing) that will be available for you to use. We also have 2 adult bikes available. The river towns of the Hudson are well worth exploring, and after an exciting day or overnight visiting New York City it's nice to know this peaceful area awaits your return.
