Copake NY Real Estate includes hamlets of Copake Falls,Taconic State Park, Copake Lake, Camphill Village, Weedmines, Craryville and West Copake. The distinction between Hillsdale and Copake is often hard to define. The Town of Copake is north of the Town of Ancram, south of the Town of Hillsdale, West of Massachusetts and East of the Town of Taghkanic. Copake is a town in Columbia County, New York. The population was 3,615 at the 2010 census.

The town derives its name from a lake, which was known to the natives as Cook-pake, or Ack-kook-peek, meaning “Snake Pond”. Copake is on the eastern border of the county. Taconic State Park is along the eastern edge of the town.

Copake was part of the 1686 Taconic Grant to Robert Livingston for about 400 acres (1.6 km2) of good land and 2,200 acres (8.9 km2) of woodland. After it was purchased from the Indians it turned out to be 160,000 acres (650 km2), and he established the English-style Livingston Manor. The manor extended well into what is now Massachusetts.

Because New England claimed ownership west to the Hudson River, a border dispute broke out. The Massachusetts Bay Colony laid out three townships west of the Taconic Mountains in 1755. Most of the present town of Copake was in one of the townships. New settlers were given 100 acres (0.40 km2) free, and some of Livingston’s tenants refused to pay rent. The border was settled in 1757 by the Lords Commissioners of Trade in London. Farmers west of the border continued to protest, however. In 1844 a rally organized by the Taconic Mutual Association took place in the center of the hamlet. After the rally the arrest of several of the leaders sparked wider protests. Eventually the Anti-Rent Party was formed in New York state, and New York instituted land reform. The Anti-Rent Party called for a Homestead Act to develop the western land. It became part of the Republican Party platform and was important in the election of Abraham Lincoln in 1860.

Copake is home to a handful of summer camps for adults and children and filled with other activities to do in the summer, such as swimming, hiking, biking, and water skiing. In the winter, Copake is a great place to rent a house to stay in to go skiing at nearby ski mountains, such as Catamount. The town is easily accessible from New York City via the Taconic State Parkway or NYS Route 22 and is a popular destination for second-home owners escaping busy Manhattan. Metro-North Railroad is also located about 20 minutes south of the town with service to and from Grand Central Terminal. The east town line is the border of Berkshire County, Massachusetts. 16 miles from the small Massachusetts town, Great Barrington. Great Barrington has great restaurants and shopping.
