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.
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.

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.
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 afraid 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.
