About Inez Foose
I am an artist (muralist and decorative painting) living in NYC. I had the opportunity to create the mural frieze honoring past librarians in the newly built Pine Plains Library on Main Street.
Inez Foose purchased this Cabin in 2001
Why Inez Foose chose Pine Plains
I acquired this cabin from it's original owner who grew up around these lakes in the summer. I was thrilled that it had never been 'upgraded'. I refurbished it while trying to keep true to a vintage 50's lake cabin. I still enjoy combing the local yard sales for items that belong to this venue.
What makes this Cabin unique
Lovely view of lake from front room and also thru the interior window while laying in bed. The sunrise over the lake can be glorious. In the spring and early summer, the frogs croaking and in the fall, geese honking serenade the otherwise quiet setting.

Scenic and Nostalgic
What a great place to relax and slow down: waking up in the morning, starting the wood stove in the chill, then drinking coffee while watching Geese land on the lake. We loved it!
It was great to return again to Inez’s vintage cabin in the woods. Although it was chilly, she had laid a fire for our arrival and it quickly took the chill off.
The beds/pillows were very comfy.
Kitchen more than adequate for breakfast cooking.
We love it here and plan to return in the spring 2020
Great little cabin. Exactly as described in description.
Pine Plains Vintage
We had the best time in the cozy vintage lake cabin in Pine Plains. Everything is so charming. The best part was the view of the sun rising over the lake that you can see while laying in bed. Sitting on the dock with a glass of wine was very relaxing. The water Lillies come out in full bloom and the lake is transformed. Inez the owner is super nice - repeating to me information she had already given but I forgot. So nice and accommodating!
Extremely rustic cabin. If you are looking to get away from it all it will satisfy your needs. Inez was easy to get in communication with and was helpful when we reached out. However this is definitely not a luxuriuos accomodation.
Much welcomed relaxation!
We loved our stay here, & would come back. Location was rustic (could use a firmer bed though..:(..), but perfect for a city getaway. Not any of the tourist trappings. We never left the cabin and enjoyed frequent walks along the lake, grilling and eating outdoors & regular naps.
Communication with owner was excellent! She is very responsive and helpful.
I recommend this place highly!
Opps, I was trying out a foam topper on that mattress!
Left a message for latest sleepers to remove if they want a firmer support.
Often texting to me during stay helps me to accommodate.
But glad you enjoyed the cabin and hope to host you again with a firmer mattress next time. Inez
Twin Island Lake is one ot three lakes next to Stissing Mountain and is good for boating and fishing. Stissing Lake is larger and deeper and good for swimming and boating with a public boat launch and recreation beach. Thompson Pond is a wildlife refuge. there are hiking trails around Thompson Pond and up Stissing Mountain to the fire Tower. The town of Pine Plains is small and quaint New England. It offers an Historic Inn for dining, several small eateries, a WIFI coffee shop and library and good family owned market with local and organic produce.. Nearby towns, Millerton and Red Hook are larger and offer more; wineries, antique barns, and a “rail trail” in Millerton.
In Rhinebeck, The Dutchess County Fairgrounds has many events during the year.
