Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

A delightful retreat awaits for the person or family who rents this camp for a long weekend, week or even the season!

Nestled in the Adirondack Park on the winding Black Creek is a cozy cabin for all seasons. A slight walk down a private path and you can launch a canoe from the landing or troll for fish from a rowboat while you cruise along the winding creek, while looking at the abundant wildlife or maybe even catching enough fish for dinner.

During the summer month you are a short drive to the State Park on Hinckley Lake for swimming or sunbathing. Old Forge, Water Safari and a climb up Bald Mountain are an hours drive away. Fall, you just need to sit on the deck and see miles of gorgeous NY State finest foliage. Winter months skiers will take advantage of how close they are to McCauley Mountain, Snow Ridge and Gore Mountain. They are within driving distance for a day on the slopes. Snowmobilers are 500 feet from the snowmobile trails maintained by the Ohio Ridge Riders Snowmobile Club.

The open floor plan of this cabin allows everyone to be part of the action. The cabin comes completely equipped, however renters must bring bed linens. A wood burning stove provides atmosphere and additional warmth during the winter months or on a chilly Fall evening. The combination living room/dinning room area and kitchen offer a beautiful view of the sunset, the ravine bordering the creek and the starry moonlit sky at night. A large, comfortable screen porch is a great place to sit in the rocking chair or on the glider with a good book. It's also a great place for a card game or puzzle making. The deck faces the south, which offers a private place for tanning and for passive solar heat in the winter months.

If there is a gambler in the crowd, Turning Stone Casino is an hours drive west on Route 365.

About Kelli Grimaldi-Vance

My father built the Family Camp in 1936. Nestled above the Black Creek in the Town of Grant it was a rustic summer home for my 4 brothers and sisters and my folks. There are many wonderful childhood, into adult memories contained within its walls. Laughter of children at play, adults sharing a game of pinochle or just sitting reading a good book. When I was a kid I remember going down to the 'fishing place' for a swim and to tease the girl cousins that were in swimming. I was the youngest of the cousins, so that was my job to tease the girl cousins. The camp has grown-up over the years with many improvements. In the past 5 years or so i have been painstakingly renovating, which is one of my hobbies, with the idea of renting it out. It has become much more than a summer place of refuge and adventure. There are many things that prospective renters can look forward to do at Black Creek Landing. Renters can spend their time fishing in the Black Creek, canoeing or row-boating down it's quiet waters. There is even enough land to ride ATV's. In the winter months the renters can cross-country ski, toboggan down the hill to the creek and snowmobile along the many trails nearby. If you close your eyes and think of a place to go where all is right with the world, 'Black Creek Landing' is the place to be any time of the year.

Why Kelli Grimaldi-Vance chose Cold Brook

It was left to me and my siblings by my parents after their deaths. About 5 years ago my brothers and sister came to me and offered their shares to me because they didn't want the responsibility of ownership any longer. They knew how much I loved the 'Camp' so it wasn't a difficult offer for me to accept.

What makes this cabin unique

The tranquil & peaceful surrounding of the Northern air is the best 'medicine' after a long stressful week of whatever you may do in the City you're from. I guarantee it!

A quiet and beautiful birder's paradise

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is stunning and has been well preserved to retain the original charm with which it was built. On top of that, the place is a birder's paradise. I observed so many different varieties of birds here flitting back and forth from the numerous birdfeeders stationed around the cottage. I ended up seeing an Eastern Bluebird, a Chipping Sparrow, a Gray Catbird, an American Goldfinch, a crow, a Turkey Vulture, a Red-bellied Woodpecker, Eastern Wood-Pewee, and, my prized sighting, a Belted Kingfisher. Somewhere along the way I gave up keeping track. Robins are the commonest of birds here; there are at least three perched somewhere on the landing at any one time.

The view from the cottage facing southwest was particularly mesmerizing. I found myself distracted every time I passed the enormous array of windows looking out over a vast expanse of treetops. To top it off, the Grimaldis were very warm and hospitable people. I loved my stay here and hope to return in the near future.

Quiet and relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 greatly enjoyed our relaxing stay here. The owners are very nice and keep a nice and neat cottage. It's comfortable with plenty of seating whether in the living room or dining room, or out on the deck or by the fire pit. Our main goal was to do the Herkimer Diamonds, which is about 30 minutes away, and other Adirondack sights up Rte 28 aren't a terrible distance either. If quiet and nature is more your style, this place can't be beat. A nice stay at a reasonable price. Thank you, Paul, for letting our family have a get away at Black Creek!

Great weekend!

  • 4 of 5

For the last 15 years a small group of us have gotten together almost every year to fish and golf. The accommodations were exactly as explained on this site and very comfortable. We were within relatively close proximity to West Canada Creek and ventured to Newport Golf Club one afternoon for a round of golf.

The next time we meet to fish West Canada we would love to stay here again!!

Our very cozy stay

  • 5 of 5

We really liked our stay, your description was very accurate. We enjoyed the walk down to Black Creek, sorry we missed out on a canoe ride and a try at some Brown Trout. Maybe next time we can give ourselves more time. While there we did enjoy a nice dinner at The River Valley Inn, and then a fun double feature at the drive in down the street. It was nice meeting Paul and getting to know the story behind Black Creek Landing!
