A Peaceful Lake and Mountain Community


Welcome to COPAKE

A peaceful farming community that goes back many generations set in a beautiful valley surrounded by hills, the Town of Copake, in eastern Columbia County, is enlivened by seasonal, weekend and new full-time residents. It’s a summer paradise for swimming, hiking and waterskiing and equally enchanting in winter for downhill and cross-country skiing, skating, snowmobiling and snow-shoeing through peaceful woods. And let’s not forget the legendary Hudson Valley fall foliage.

Contemporary art galleries, imaginatively stocked shops and historic homes and farms blend beautifully into the picturesque landscape. Hilly country roads provide heavenly drives and bike rides. The Berkshires and everything they have to offer are just over the border in Massachusetts. NYC is easily accessible via the Taconic Parkway and State Route 22; Metro-North Railroad is 20 minutes away. Copake homes for sale range in price from $250k to $1.5 million.

People & Lifestyle

Copake is a mix of small-town feeling and fun with second-homers and commuters, a mixture of old farming families and friendliness, commuters and community, weekenders and workers. With less than 100 people per square mile, there’s plenty of room for everyone and natural beauty as far as the eye can see. Copake is rural but not old-fashioned, perfect for people who don’t want to live near a city or traditional suburb but like to be in touch with the latest in art and community living.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping 

You’ve cooked all the local produce from the farms and watched all the episodes of your favorite shows. It’s time to check out what Copake has to offer, like musicals, plays and murder mysteries at Two Of Us Productions, baked mac ‘n’ cheese at Taconic Wayside Inn, everybody’s favorite fries at Dad’s Copake Diner; flower bouquets, fresh baked goods, supplies and hand-made local artisans’ wares at Copake General Store; dipped soft-serve at the Depot Deli and wines, spirits and the unexpected bottle at Copake Wine Works. Or make the short drive to Great Barrington for home-made ice cream, award-winning theater, the food co-op and very good Thai food.

Things to Do

When you’ve gotten used to feeling serene and seeing deer and hearing birds singing, get out and enjoy what Copake has to offer. Put in a bid on an antique bicycle at Copake Auction and enjoy the beautiful hillside locale, fresh goat cheese and pate from Cheval Dairy and oodles of other great local products at the Copake-Hillsdale Farmers Market. Sign up for sessions at Peace Mountain Yoga or enter the Roe Jan Ramble bike race. Play a few holes at Copake Country Club for golf and then have a relaxing dinner at their farm-to-table restaurant, The Greens. Set up a chair and open your picnic at the summer concerts at Copake Park or put the skis on the car for a few runs at Catamount Ski Center.
