This unique tipi rental is in an off-the-grid location on Chloe's Lake in Saugerties, New York, and can accommodate up to four guests. The tipi is 18 feet in diameter and is handmade and painted by the artists at Nomadics Tipi Makers, a company based out of Oregon.

The lake includes sunnies and bass for fishing.
The “swimmable-ity” varies with the time of year. For the hosts, it is swimmable whenever the water is warm enough. They often use flotation devices, such as little inner tubes or rafts one can buy for a few dollars. In the fall through spring, up until some time in June or so, the waters are more clear and suitable for swimming.
Sometime starting in June, watermeal grows which floats on the surface of the water. When there’s a breeze, it blows to the edge of the lake and the surface is clear of it. If there is no wind, it spreads over the lake. Also, the water gets a greenish tint when the hot weather arrives, not algae, but more pond-like, though the water is still safe to swim in. The lake maintains a thermocline all summer, that is, while the surface water gets warm, the deeper water, a foot or so below the surface, stays cool, having a thermocline is one of the differences that distinguish a lake from a pond. If a body of water is not deep enough, it cannot keep the thermocline.
Be kind to the environment and take care of the surroundings.
