Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in Pulaski - The King's Gathering

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Welcome to The King’s Gathering, a private four bedroom, two bathroom log cabin 1.5 miles south of the Salmon River and the famous lower fly zone in Altmar, NY. Host up to 12 people in our well-appointed 2,300 sq. ft. vacation home offering antiques and modern day conveniences. After catching your salmon or steelhead, hiking or cross-country skiing through our 63 wooded acres surrounded by state and county land, riding an ATV or snowmobile on area trails minutes from the property, or perhaps kayaking or canoeing in nearby ponds or rivers, rest assured of a great night’s sleep.

Each room is named after a fish that can be caught in the Salmon River. The 'King Room' offers a king bed and is on the main level surrounded by the natural logs. The 'Coho Room' sleeps two on a queen bed and is painted the deep greens you would find on this fish. The 'Brown Trout Room' is painted a rich Governor's Gold similar to the coloration of this fish and simply appointed. The blue 'Rainbow Trout Room' offers two twin beds with accents of red found on this gorgeous fish.

All rooms feature the uber-comfy, exclusive “Marriott Bed” (9” deep foam mattress on a 10 ½” box spring). There are also queen sleeper sofas available for additional guests. All bed and bath linens provided; down-alternative duvets used.

Enjoy all your home-cooked meals or morning espresso at our custom built farm table that extends to 10’ and seats up to 14. Grill and eat the day’s catch at the picnic table on the lower back patio. Make s’mores and share tales of the day around the fire pit or challenge one another to horseshoes. Relax in our family room or continue the fun with a DVD, the Wii (batteries not included), board games and cards.

The cabin is 6.4 miles from Exit 34 on I-81 at NY-104 E in the Happy Valley region. Pulaski is 10 miles west. Tug Hill region renowned for incredible snow accumulations is 20 minutes north/east. 35 minutes south is Syracuse (and Syracuse International Airport) with shopping at Destiny USA, one of the top ten largest malls in America. Sackets Harbor and Watertown are 45 minutes north on I-81. Thousand Islands and Alexandria Bay are an hour north. 40 minutes' drive south and you can experience Sylvan Beach Amusement Park, the 'Coney Island' of central NY, and Turning Stone Casino.

Snowy Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends went up to New York for a snowmobiling trip and had a great time! The trails were right around the corner. The house was perfect. We had 3 couples and small children. Everyone had a room that was private, clean and quiet. The beds were very comfortable and we really enjoyed the rocking chairs. The kitchen and living room was a great open space for everyone to spread out. We really enjoyed the warm wood stove. It gave that rustic cabin feel. There was enough seating for everyone to spread out and not feel on top of each other. We would definitely go back! Especially in the summer next time for all the other outdoor activities.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

The 7 of us stayed at this beautiful cabin during our recent fishing trip was nothing but Amazing. The cabin is fully furnished and really has everything you would need. We have stayed in many places over the past 15 years and without a doubt this place is by the far the best. This place is so close to the river..very private and no neighbors around :-)

Just little touches that made our stay such a pleasant experience...like having fishing rod hangers on the out and inside the cabin. A bench at the door when you come in so you can take off your shoes/boots. Plenty of firewood for the Firepit ( we did not get a chance to use since it rained the whole time during our 3 day stay) and a paved driveway so you don't drag mud all over the place.

He cabin is super clean and very roomy. All the beds and rooms there felt like you are staying at expensive hotel...very comfortable and cozy.

The owner, Henry is super nice and cool. Communication was great throughout and so easy to deal with. We miss this place already and will definitely return next year...without a doubt.

Thank you again Henry, for your wonderful hospitality and and allowed us to stay at your beautiful home. Looking forward to our stay here again next year.

Great place close to Salmon River

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was one of the highlights of the trip. We melted right in to the warm and welcoming feeling of the property. Everything was as advertised; it exceeded my expectations.

We fished in the morning and came back to the cabin for what seemed like a six hour lunch. It was so comfortable we didn't want to leave.
