Roast marshmallows over a camp fire and eat either on the dock or the picnic table.

A piece of Heaven away from the hustle and bustle of everyday living.

  • 5 of 5

Extremely pleasant vacation experience. The cabin was very clean and well stocked for our week get away. Quiet and serene with good fishing results. If you're looking for a place to get away from it all this is the one.

April '17 Lake house stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Riley Lake house was very enjoyable and comfortable. Everything worked well (AC, hot water, RO, WIFI,TV) except for the DISH TV reception that would be intermittent during the one day we had heavy rain and thunderstorms. Everything was very clean and comfortable, we especially were impressed with the very nice large tiled showers with seats! Plenty of pans, dishes, condiments and supplies. We would have liked to have had real glass glassware instead of only plastic cups for cocktails and wine, but we luckily brought one of our own to use. Nice quiet secluded location, we would definitely like to come back in the future to get away again in the springtime from our home here in upstate NY.

Perfect for what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

Overall the house is not exactly huge in size but we spent most of our time outside for the week. For two people, we had everything we needed and then some, and certainly amenities we would not have access to had we stayed in a hotel. The vents did make some noise at night which took some adjusting to. Being light sleepers, this woke us up quite frequently at night but being on vacation I wasn't overly concerned. Also, we went during late March and tis the season for bugs! The outside swarms with them once it gets dark, particularly by the entrance near the garage. Lastly, we did see one very large wolf spider on the trip, near the garage entrance. This was the only time of the week we spotted one, and I'm sure the outside bugs near that entrance brought him there. It may need a spring spray down for insects but the place itself was great and we would certainly go back again!
