Sweet, petite, and recently renovated, this charming lakefront cabin is perfectly set up for weekends away and fun in the sun!


A charming open kitchen and living room greet you with easy access to the outdoors, views of the lake, and plenty of space to gather with friends. 


This level is completed with the first bedroom, laundry, and the home’s spacious full bathroom — including a double vanity, subway tile, and slate floors.


The gracious oversized second bedroom can be found peacefully tucked away upstairs. This serene space can easily accommodate a king-sized bed plus a home office or exercise spot, as well. 


The large deck that flows seamlessly off of the kitchen is the perfect spot for dining al fresco and watching the sunset over the lake. Take your relaxation to the next level with the new hot tub and fire pit set up in the backyard — an ideal way to round out a fun day in the Catskills! 


Briscoe Lake is 59 acres and no motorboats are allowed, so you’ll enjoy nothing but peace and quiet on your private lakeside platform. 


An 1875 one-room schoolhouse sits beside the main house adding potential to expand the property (electricity can be added back). This auxiliary building is a blank slate that would make an amazing office, studio, or workshop!


The basement, accessible via glass sliders under the deck, is an ideal place to store your paddle boards, kayaks, etc!


Recent improvements to the property include an extensive renovation with all-new plumbing, electrical, windows, kitchen, back deck, ductless heating/cooling, new hot tub, and more.


Fun is truly at your fingertips with this convenient location that is only 12-15 mins to Bethel Woods Performing Art Center, Kauneonga Lake (featured in Travel+Leisure), and Lake Superior State Park. Jeffersonville, Kenoza Lake, and Livingston Manor — all 15 minutes or less away — have bountiful options for excellent dining, shopping, farmer’s markets, spa services, and the brand new Catskill Art Space. Under 2 hours to NYC! 


Buyers can reach out to real estate real estate salesperson Colby Whitlock with any questions or to schedule a showing. Listed by Katy Porte, real estate salesperson with the Upstate Curious Team at Compass. 


Note: Buyer’s agent to confirm all pertinent information including square footage, property taxes, short-term rental restrictions, etc. The schoolhouse/barn is being sold in As-Is condition.
