About Jennifer Dean

Both myself and husband were raised in the small town of Canton, which is about 20 miles away. He have 2 sons and a daughter that we lost 12 years ago. We purchased the property so we all can be together as a family. We love spending time here during the summer either by the campfire, or hanging by the water sipping on a glass of homemade wine, with a great group of our lake friends.

Jennifer Dean purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Jennifer Dean chose Gouverneur

We wanted to look for something that was large enough so family and friends could come and stay with us. There is plenty of room to entertain. We opened up the front screened in porch, replaced it with windows and now it brought the inside to us. We just love it.

If you have your own boat you are welcome to launch it, prior approval needs to be made. Before you can launch your boat you must make sure that is has been cleaned on the outside, so our lake does not become contaminated. There will be a fee to launch normally $30.00.

Great family lake house

  • 5 of 5

The lake house was comfortable and had plently of room for our large group. The lake and kayaks were awesome and the kids loved hanging out on the water trampoline. The state forests surrounding the lake are private and there are several great spots for picnics and swimming. We would kayak over to the forest and hang out all day. The trip across the lake is not hard, we brought young children across with no issues. The owners are really great people, and the house was well stocked with pots pans spices and utensils. Thanks for all your help and a great family vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the positive feedback, meeting your family was wonderful. We are pleased that we could accommodate all of your families needs, we like to try to make it as simple as we can. And trout Lake is a great place for sharing and making memories with family. Thank you girls for the wonderful revamp of the outside fire pit.We hope that maybe next year you will come back and stay again.
