WATERFRONT CHALET WITH ACCESS TO SNOWMOBILE TRAILS

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Pulaski - The Chalet on Autumn Lake

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Built in 2006, this 1540 square foot Chalet is nestled in a quiet cove on Autumn Lake, just a few miles east of Pulaski, New York. Swim or fish for bass or panfish, off your kayaks, on a private spring fed lake or walk across the street and fish on the famous Salmon River.

Three miles upstream the Salmon River Falls offers one of the most picturesque settings you are likely to encounter in that region of New York. If it is snowmobiling you like, access snowmobile trails right from you door. With the 1000 islands of Alexandria bay just an hour away, you can experience the beauty of the U.S. - Canadian border or drive 35 minutes south to Syracuse and feast on Dinosaur barbeque and shoot over to Turning Stone Casino to try your luck on the tables.

About Dave Fernandes

After serving in the U.S. Coast Guard I was hired as a Letter Carrier in Holyoke, Masssachusetts and was employed there for over 35 years before I retired in 2014. My wife and partner of over 25 years has the last name Forti, with my name being Fernandes, Hence, Double F Vacation Home Rentals, inc was formed.

Chances are you will meet Dexter our 3rd Aussie, since he makes the 4 hour trip each way to flip the rental. Our philosophy is to have a 'one stop shopping' approach to vacation home rentals. We try to eliminate the stress of the first and last days of your vacation by providing everything you can possibly need while you are on vacation. Traveling light prevents stress! Let us take the stress away at the Chalet on Autumn Lake.

Dave Fernandes purchased this house in 2005

Why Dave Fernandes chose Pulaski

Dumb luck. I would travel to Honeoye Lake in the finger lakes every year to fish for a week or two. When I was out on the lake one day, a storm approached and I was forced to give up the fishing rod and pick up a penny saver paper. I noticed an add for waterfront property in the Pulaski area of N.Y. I took a two hour ride with my fishing pole. Impressed by the beauty of the lake in the fall, and impressed with catching 4 fish in 15 minutes from shore, was all I need to dig out my check book and write a $500 check to hold the property until I got back to Mass.

I ran the numbers and Roz and I took our shot. Six months later we had our dream retirement home built. The only problem was that I was not ready to retire. Plan B was to rent it out by the week to defray the costs. Before I knew it, I had came to the realization that this property was meant to be shared with wonderful families from as far west as California and as far east as England. I truly love meeting the families that spend their vacations at our Chalet. Roz and I hope to be a part of every boy and girls childhood that spend time in our home and out on our lake. When it comes right down to it. Blessings are made to be shared.

What makes this house unique

It's 5AM as I pull off the dock with my quite electric motor in my small 10 foot boat. The birds start chatting away. I wish I knew what they were saying. A beaver swims across the cove and suddenly slaps his big tale and startles me. I make a cast with my fishing rod and a bass attacks my fishing lure. This is a great day. Later on I hook into a 6.5 lb large mouth. He is tricky and he takes me down into the weeds. I can't get him out. I am affraid I am going to break the line. Relax Dave. I let my line out and back off with my trolling motor. Five minutes later I start to retrieve my line. He fell for it! Now he is free and I am standing up in the boat, keeping my rod high so he won't take me into the weeds again. Now he is mine. He smiles for the camera and I release him back into the lake. As I motor back to the Chalet a Golden Eagle shoots across the end of the cove, banks and shows me his wing span. OMG. This happened on June 8, 2010. Being the only one out on the lake on any given day and appreciating what God has given to me is all a man can ask for. Nature at it's best.

Peaceful Family Retreat

  • 5 out of 5
We just returned from a week at this Autumn Lake chalet. We had never been there before, and it was everything we expected. The pictures and information on the website are very accurate. The owner, Dave, was extremely helpful from our first inquiry on HomeAway until the day we left his chalet. He clearly loves meeting people and helping them to enjoy the beauty of his vacation home. They really thought of EVERYTHING! We did not venture out much because we were having too much fun kayaking, fishing, playing cards, reading, and spending some quality family time. We did visit Salmon River Falls, and that was very close by and a beautiful spot. We especially liked that our dog was welcome to join us. I would recommend this property to others and will probably rent it again sometime in the future.

Excellent place to rent

  • 5 out of 5
Dave and Roz were gracious hosts and clearly communicated all details about the house. They were very easy to work with throughout the process and genuinely nice people. The house itself was clean and well stocked (included a mountain of board games which we really enjoyed) and very cozy. We enjoyed the electric fireplace in the living room and the real firepit outside. The lake is beautiful and very relaxing to take a boat out on and go fishing. We stayed here with 4 adult couples (and our 7 month old baby) and felt quite comfortable. We already want to rent next year! I would highly recommend this property. Thanks again Dave!

Beautiful, peaceful and private.

  • 5 out of 5
The Chalet was all Dave and Roz advertise. The home is well kept, clean and just down right gorgeous. Very quiet and private spot. My family (wife, 2 daughters, 2 son-in-laws, 3 grandsons) had a extremely relaxing week. My 5 and 7 year old grandsons swam, kayaked and caught fish when ever they felt like it. They both have told me they that they want to live there! The satellite TV came in handy to quiet them down before bed time. Dave does a great job of communicating facts about the house and area. We enjoyed the fish hatchery, Salmon River falls and Sandy Island Beach State park just minutes away. If you're looking for some tranquility THIS IS the place for you. Many thanks to Dave and Roz. Peace.

AWESOME WEEK IN PARADISE!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Dave and Roz,
Bill, Justine and myself can't thank you enough for providing such a great place for us to stay and enjoy our annual fall fishing trip to Altmar. The house was immaculate and everything we needed was there, we couldn't have asked for more. We would highly recommend your chalet for anyone looking for a great place to stay and enjoy a week or more of R&R. We're already booked again for 2013 and looking forward to another great week in Altmar. The fishing can be hit or miss but we know the accommodations are always first class, which makes it easier to relax after a long day fishing. Thanks again, see you this fall.
Regards,
Chris

Fishing trip to Pulaski NY (Chalet)

  • 5 out of 5
I’m a little behind on writing this review for our fishing trip to Pulaski NY in October 2012. However, I wanted to make sure that everyone that is planning a vacation has an opportunity to check with Dave & Roz before staying anywhere else. My son and I stayed at the Chalet in October of 2012 and 2011. This is truly a beautiful place. In addition to the fishing, we always enjoy the peaceful Private Lake. Trust me; you cannot beat the comfort of staying here. All the privacy you need and very clean. Dave and Roz are hardworking people that go the extra mile to make certain that everyone is happy here. Go, stay and relax. You will not regret one moment. Thanks again Dave & Roz you’re the best of the best. Larry Sr. & Larry Jr.

Guys Fishing Trip

  • 5 out of 5
The house is beautiful and the fishing was amazing!!!! Myself and six of my high school friends got together for a guy’s fishing trip at the chalet. There was plenty of room for all of us and we did not need to leave the house once because it had everything we needed. We had a fishing tournament on the final Saturday and I lost even though I caught 28 fish in just 3 hours!! We had a great time sitting by the fire or on the deck just reminiscing about old times. The week was everything we hoped it would be and more and will definitely be back. Thanks for everything!!!!!

Owner's Response: Nothing more I like to here about Autumn Lake is the fishing is awesome! Our private lake is respected by all and catch and release makes it one of the most productive lakes in upstate NY. Too bad you missed the 8 pounder that our neighbor John caught (and released) back into the lake in September. Thanks for the Review!
