My oldest son wants to go cross-country in an RV. Personally, I would like that as well. We don’t have an RV so I asked my friend Sue some questions about renting one. Sue and her family own Interlake RV Park in Rhinebeck, NY, about 10 minutes from our home in the village. She was very quick to offer us the chance to stay for a day or two at her site in one of the many rentals they have on the property. I am telling you, this is such a cool place. We have our own RV on our own site with 4 bunk beds, a master bedroom, full bath, eating area, sitting area and kitchen. There is a screened-in porch off the entrance that is furnished with comfortable Adirondack style chairs and a patio set for 4. A few feet away from the porch is a gas grill and barbecue pit. I think the first thing that struck us was how spotless the rental was. Seriously, the sliding doors leading you inside were so crystal clear that I walked right into them, knocking my eye glasses right off my head! Ha! I fooled so feelish. If I could take a picture of my nose and cheek print I would; even at the expense of my pride.
There must be close to one hundred hook-ups here. We went for a walk last evening and though it was dark there were enough lights to see you along but not to the point where they were glaring in your window at night. One thing that really struck us was the quiet. To look around and see all the other RVs and campers, I thought there would be quite a bit of noise and activity. Utter silence. While on our walk we came upon the Rec Hall and swimming pool (heated, no less), pretty nooks with shade plants growing and a wonderful goldfish pond surrounded by stone and impatiens carefully watched over by a little cherub.
We have not been to the lake yet; we are heading there now. I have taken a few photos to give you an idea, but they cannot possible convey the homey comfort this park exudes.
Interlake stays open into October and I have recommended this site to many of my fellow knitters who come from all over the states to attend the NYS Sheep and Wool Festival. Knowing Sue like I do, I was very comfortable referring people here site unseen. After this experience, I will certain encourage people to consider this over a motel in Kingston or otherwise. I plan on snapping more pics during the day so check back later. Meanwhile, I will provide you with the link so you can see things for your self. If you do plan a stay, just tell her ‘Regina sent you’! Here are some pics…
I have added some pictures of the lake area, but they really do not show the natural beauty of the area.
Dig this! I saw a Blue Heron, Cedar Waxwings and (drum roll…) a Kingfisher. I have a sharp pencil and my field guide is open so look out!
Thank you Susan and Tina for providing us with an AWESOME get away. We love you!
This is too good not to share!

I grew up right down the street from Interlake… it's beautiful there, isn't it? If you get a chance to walk down Long Pond Rd a little ways, you'll see the house my dad built at 47 Long Pond. Have a great time!
