Steeped in a rich and vibrant history the original main house of the current Willow Lake Farms was built by Henry Dubois Van Wyck, the first mayor of Fishkill and was named Knickerbocker Lodge. It burned down in the early 1920's. At the time of the fire the house was owned by the Ursuline Novitiates and was purchased as a wedding gift by Noah Slee the inventor of '3-in1-Oil' for his bride Margaret Sanger as a retreat for her as she worked on the birth control movement. The design of Willow Lake was inspired by a British Manor house. The home was sold in 1949 and it became a dude ranch where it is said Esther Williams was a guest. Now a private residence affording many possibilities. Convenient to Stewart International, Metro North, I-84, and 60 miles to New York City. Recently a site of a movie to be released in 2020. Includes five other residences, two of them duplexes and one cottage. Also, an artist studio (Tree Tops); a meditation gazebo; several barns and out-buildings complete the package of this special compound on 99.6 acres surrounding the 5-acre lake.
