Awesome Place

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is beautiful. All the comforts of home in the middle of a private wooded setting. Took my son to get away for a weekend to some fishing and rest and relaxation. Kevin was a pleasure to deal with. Definitely coming back!

Awesome Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a guys' weekend here and we couldn't have been happier with the location, the cabin and all of its amenities and the kindness of the owner. The price was more than reasonable for the amount of land at your doorstep and the space provided. There were 11 of us total, and the extra fella really enjoyed the comfy couch. This place really does have it all. Hoping to go back soon!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures do not do this this place justice! The lodge is beautiful and has everything you might need. The is plenty of land for the kids to play on and the lake is beautiful! My family and I have been lucky enough to stay there twice and have enjoyed every moment!

Outstanding for Families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the lodge for 3 weeks this summer with our 2 boys and absolutely loved it. There are hiking and biking trails, a lake for fishing, boating and swimming and the lodge is set way off the road so it is perfectly safe. The lodge is equipped with everything you need and we were super comfortable throughout our stay. There are several outdoor picnic tables for hosting larger groups and the porch as some great gliding chairs. The owner is very helpful. We are returning for a month next summer and are looking forward to another stay.

Wonderful place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at the Lodge. The inside is rustic and beautiful and has everything you need (just bring washcloths/hand towels). The pond was great for my dogs to swim in and we had fun paddling around in the canoes. Supermarket/Target/Gas...all kind of stores are just 10 minutes away. Sushi place was delicious. Kevin is a great host - promptly answers the phone for any questions you might have. Plan to stay there again next summer. Definitely a place for peace and quiet!!

The pics does not do this place justice. You have to see it to believe it. The property is exclusively private(1/4 mile off quiet road). You cannot hear or see any cars passing(you will doubt you are so close to everything i.e. target, dunkin donuts, burger king, grocery stores, cvs, shopping complex with restaurants-seriously, all just 5-7 mins from property)-lake is great and for your personal use only (no other people use it). Beautiful lawn around 2/3 of the lake(great for picnic and lots of space for games). Fishing, swimming and rowing around is great fun. Numerous hiking trails available(don't get lost-alot of land). Owners are awesome and very accomodating based on your needs. We have left NY-Brooklyn to go there 3 times in the last 15 months. GREAT if PRIVATE vacation is what you are looking for.
