Awesome Week

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed for the week and had such a great time!!! The cabin is exactly as explained and clean. The views are awesome and the location is perfect.

The kids spent most of the week playing in the water. There is also a public beach just down the road and they have a diving board.

I can't say enough great things about this place. Can't wait to come again.

Refreshing Week!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was exceptional! We had a relaxing and fun week. The home was just as pictured and described. I appreciated the contact and communication that the owner provided. I have just returned and have already shared the link with several friends and co-workers.

From the home we enjoyed much of the Adirondack region fishing and riding motorcycles. Fishing on Lake Algonquin was worth it as well as several other lakes.

The people in the grocery store just up the street were very friendly as well as those we met while checking go out the area. We ate at several deli`s and restaurants in the Adirondack region and would recommend each of them

We look forward to returning!

Absolutely wonderful! Felt like a home away from home had everything me and my family needed and more. Owners were friendly and very accommodating. Neighbors were friendly and helpful. Everything you could ask for a short or long term stay we stayed for 5 days and wish we could havd stayed longer. The description provided is spot on. We are considering making it an annual retreat!!!

Nice Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our weekend stay at this adorable cabin. The area was a little more populated than we would have liked but the owners were very nice, the cabin was clean and exactly how it was described. We hope we are able to come back next year for a longer stay!
