This was inspired by my recent open house visit on Sylvan Lake. Sylvan Lake is located in the town of Beekman in Southern Dutchess County NY. The lake was once home to a mining quarry so parts of the lake are very deep. It is a great place to go swimming, scuba diving, and fishing.
The day of my visit was a bit overcast, however, I was entertained by the birds, beautiful swans and a flock of smaller birds.
Along Sylvan Lake can also be found a very popular camp site, a great location because of the many attractions within a few miles.
You will also find a housing complex known as Chelsea Cove. Residents of this complex have direct access to the lake. I just checked the mutliple listing service and there are properties available ranging from $139,000-250,000.
