Overview

About the property

Rustic 3+ Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, pets considered, sleeps 8+

Tucked in among the large boulders and mature trees, this secluded property is only a 5 minute walk to its deeded access on West Caroga Lake and abuts over 60,000 undeveloped acres of state land known as the Ferris Lake Wild Forest Preserve. The preserve offers endless miles of trails that wind through some of the most beautiful terrain imaginable, all accessible right outside the front door.

Completed in early 2013, StoneHaven was custom designed and built by it's owners to incorporate the luxury of modern and efficient technology into a rustic package. This concept allows visitors to experience the more premium comforts of a home while the décor and setting provide a true Adirondack “camp” experience.

An open floor plan allows an opportunity to engage in conversation, entertain and keep an eye on children all from any vantage point on the first floor. Complement your meals in the dining area with a gaze out the large picture window which affords an uninterrupted view of nature at its finest. Be sure to appreciate the old world craftsmanship of the custom made kitchen cabinetry built in primitive design and utilizing traditional construction methods. Also take note that the walls and ceiling on the first floor as well as most of the trim throughout the house are comprised of knotty pine that was reclaimed and milled locally from the trees that were harvested from the property prior to construction.

Don’t be too surprised to find your morning coffee or evening drink interrupted by a visit from one or more members of our local wildlife community which may include: fox, deer, turkey, chipmunk, possum, rabbit, fisher, mink, raccoon, black bear, bobcat, and many others.

From our family to yours...We sincerely hope that you enjoy your visit here at StoneHaven! Please- relax, unwind and be happy!

About Trent Atkinson

Trent and Patty Atkinson purchased a vacation home in Caroga Lake in the summer of 2007 which would come to be lovingly referred to as 'CrookedWood'. In 2010, they received confirmation that Patty was pregnant with their first child. Although they simply adored their little slice of Adirondack heaven, Trent had determined that the costs associated with renovating CrookedWood to make it 'kid compliant' were not feasible. Coincidentally, at that exact same time their neighbor had made an offer to sell a portion of his property located directly adjacent to them. And thus the idea of 'StoneHaven' was born. CrookedWood was subsequently sold to family friends and Trent began the design and construction of a new slightly larger, more kid friendly, and much more energy-efficient home. Every aspect of the home was carefully planned out in order to maximize use while minimizing size. Also, consideration of environmental impact, both short-term and long-term, had a major influence on every detail of the design. On January 1 of 2013 they officially proclaimed 'construction complete'. StoneHaven is now the second home of the Atkinson Family...Trent, Patty, Harper, Hudson and their yellow labrador Murphy.

Trent Atkinson purchased this cottage in 2012

Charming, comfortable and clean cabin

  • 5 of 5

Stonehaven was the perfect get away for our crew. We went in March right after a snow fall. It was so beautiful to be surrounded by snow covered woods and feel cozy and warm indoors. The cabin has such charm, it was clean, and had all of the amenities we needed to feel comfortable during our stay. Thank you!

Beautiful cottage in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a long weekend at this lovely cottage. Had a wonderful time with the family. The house is well appointed with all the comforts of home. We enjoyed skiing at the Royal ski area which is very close to the house. There are many restaurant options within close proximity as well. The owners were a pleasure to work with. They were prompt to respond to any questions or concerns. Would highly recommend a stay.

New Year get away

  • 5 of 5

I would like to start out by stating that the pictures of this home DO NOT DO IT JUSTICE. This place is a gem and I can not wait to return.

The home is extremely charming and cozy. The kitchen is well equipped and very functional. Bedrooms are perfect size and beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were clean!

We traveled with another couple and just had a great time. There is not much of a town at all but the trip to Gloversville was easy and they had anything you would need. We originally went to ice fish and everyone we talk to in town was very helpful in our excursions. The 2+ foot of snow made ice fishing a little more difficult but we were able to get out there and catch a few perch.

The owners were very helpful and easy to communicate with.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying in this beautiful home away from home. Everything you need is there, the people in the village are friendly and helpful. Even though the weather was a little chilly, we built a campfire each night and the house was comfortable and welcoming. I would highly recommend this camp to anyone including those with small children. The area is safe, secure and private. My brother has some physical disabilities and was easily able to navigate the house and the outside area. Had such a good time, we will be returning. Thank you to Trent for his patience in getting me into the wi-fi.By the way, many nice places to eat - we had great prime rib at the Outlet. This is a special place to stay - treat yourself people, you won't regret it. Linda Roys-Jones
