About the property

Nonsmokers only! Private 2 br 1 ba cabin with dock, canoe, and rowboat

Looking to get away from it all? This cozy cabin, surrounded by meadow and woods, provides lots of privacy, birdsong, and beautiful views of forest on all sides.

The cabin can sleep up to 5 people. There are two bedrooms upstairs, and 1 full bath downstairs. One bedroom has a queen bed, and the other has 2 twins with room to play. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room, with a comfortable inflatable mattress. Blankets and pillows are provided, but please bring your own sheets and towels.

The living room has 2 comfy sofas - one is a sofa bed - and a very comfy recliner. A large screen porch with a picnic table invites you to dine outdoors in rain or shine or take an afternoon nap on the futon . For cooler days, you can dine indoors in the dining room. Should the weather turn cold, turn up the heat with the wood stove (wood not provided but readily available in the area) or the propane heater. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator and an electric stove, and is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, and basic spices.

Outside, there's an open fire pit for campfires and grilling. A large grill rack is provided, but you need to bring your own wood. A short walk down a wooded path from the cabin brings you to a private dock where a canoe and row boat are available for your exclusive use on Paradox Creek and Paradox Lake. Paradox Lake is known for good fishing, canoeing, and kayaking, and this end of the lake is especially known for the fishing! The creek is fun to paddle on. There are usually lots of birds and flowers to look at. Please bring your own life jackets - especially for children!

While you may feel like you're far from everything here, it's only an easy 10 minute drive to Schroon Lake and 20 minute drive to Ticonderoga, for shopping, historic Fort Ticonderoga, larger boat rentals at Schroon Lake Marina, music and musical theater at the Seagle Colony throughout the summer. There are lots of NYS DEC hiking trails (Pharoah Mountain Wilderness) just minutes away, and the Adirondack High Peaks are only about a half hour away. Bring your bicycles - there are quiet country roads for bicycling.

There is a landline for regional and credit card calls. There is also a radio/CD player. It's a great place to unplug, enjoy your family or friends, get outside, or cozy up by the fireside. We hope you'll enjoy our little corner of Paradise as much as we do.

Everything was fine. Clean and simple. Only drawback was the bugs were unrelenting down at the dock, but I had been accurately advised.

OK but not more.

  • 3 of 5

Cabin was reasonably well provisioned with amenities and in serviceable condition. However, the related comprehensive descriptive materials and instructions created expectations that were not entirely fulfilled. Overall, reasonable value for the money.

Peaceful base camp!!!

  • 4 of 5

Nice secluded place in the woods.At night the stars were amazing. We used the cozy cabin as a base camp. Day tripping in Vermont and Schroon Lake. It was also refreshing to truly unplug, No internet, no TV, no cell. service!!!

Spacious, functional cabin that can accomodate 8 or more.

  • 4 of 5

First the pros. Kitchen was very adequate. Full size refrigerator freezer, microwave, full size electric stove and oven. Coffee maker and blender. All the basics. Nice dining area and living room. Screened in porch/deck with a futon for optional capacity in warm weather. The Federal air tight stove worked great for the chilly nights. Canoe and row boat were a fun filled asset. Information packet provided by the owner was excellent. It covered the cabin operation and provided abundant information about the surrounding area. No critters in the cabin; a few spiders, that's all.

A few cons. The outside light next to the front door needs to be fixed. The entrance facing the driveway needs to be keyed. Some suburbans are unnerved by needing to walk around the building in the pitch dark night. The hike down to the dock is steep and long; just be aware of the physical abilities that are necessary. Don't forget the deep woods OFF!

Not pro or con: Just the facts. There is no cell service or internet. How did we ever get by without it? Some may consider this pro, others may consider this con. Just know what your getting.
