SPRING Season: welcome the warming months in the mountains! Pull out the fishing pole, motorcycle, and hiking boots. Check out the apple blossoms and first crops coming out of the fields.

SUMMER Season: the farmers markets are in full swing. There's a main Street fair or county festival going on every weekend. The kayakers are on the rivers and lakes. The cyclists are on the roads. The horses are saddled up. The golfers are yelling 'fore!'

FALL Season: the evenings are cooler, the campfires are blazing and the harvest is coming off the farm. Mountain bike from the top of the ski runs, or just ride the lift and enjoy the fall foliage. Foliage runs mid September through mid Oct.

WINTER Season: the leaves are down and the mountains are still the best place to be. Skiing, snowshoeing, cross-country, tubing, snowmobiling, and ice fishing can keep you busy. Come March, watch local farmers tap trees and make maple syrup gold.

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I, our two boys and their grandparents had opportunity to enjoy your house for a few days in advance of a Cooperstown tournament. We loved the rustic appearance and found it had plenty of room for our group. When my wife and I weren't on the water ourselves, we spent time visiting with our parents on the porch. In addition to the beautiful view, we could enjoy watching our boys having a ball fishing on the lake just below. It made me want to go back in time where simple living at this place would have been a fine way for a family to spend an entire summer. Thanks for sharing your wonderful property with us and we hope to be back.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Such a great getaway! Beautiful and clean house; nice layout and well decorated. Our kids had such a fun time, the paddle boat, huge covered porch facing the lake - so many highlights of the house, hard to describe them all. Upon departure the kids started to cry because they did not want to leave. Would also make a great couples escape as the house is decorated so well. Don't hesitate to book this one!

Cozy tastefully designed cabin, nice lake views!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, artsy and great place to unwind and get your mind off of NYC's frenetic pace. The property owner was very accommodating and took our reservation on the same day we contacted him.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect. Clean, beautifully decorated, it fit our party of 5 adults and 2 children perfectly. The host was very responsive and helpful. The setting is unforgettable. We were there in early October for the fall foliage, it was stunning. We made use of the row boat and kayaks, the grill, fire pit, hammock, fireplace...We loved everything about the cabin and would book again in an instant!

Beautiful and Serene

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a great time here! This was our second time coming (with a different group). Unfortunately, both times it rained during our stay but we did manage to get a boat ride in this time! We love that he has a row boat and 2 kayaks! Last time we went in the fall for the beautiful fall foliage and this time were able to enjoy the lush trees. It's such a beautiful and quiet property. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, etc. The dining table was perfect for our group of 7 people. Cabin was clean and very comfortable. Ivan was very flexible with the check-in/check-out time, which was very helpful!
