Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday cabin in New York - The King's Gathering

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Welcome to The King’s Gathering, a private four bedroom, three bathroom log cabin on three levels 1.5 miles south of the Salmon River and the famous lower fly zone in Altmar, NY. Host up to 12 people in our well-appointed 2,300 sq. ft. vacation home offering antiques and modern day conveniences. After catching your salmon or steelhead, hiking or cross-country skiing through our 63 wooded acres surrounded by state and county land, riding an ATV or snowmobile on area trails minutes from the property, or perhaps kayaking or canoeing in nearby ponds or rivers, rest assured of a great night’s sleep.

Each room is named after a fish that can be caught in the Salmon River. The 'King Room' offers a king bed on the main level surrounded by logs adjacent to a full bath. Upstairs features three bedrooms and a full bathroom. On this floor, the 'Coho Room' sleeps two on a queen bed and is painted the deep greens you would find on this fish. The 'Brown Trout Room' is painted a rich gold similar to the coloration of this fish. The blue 'Rainbow Trout Room' offers two twin beds with accents of red found on this gorgeous fish. The basement features slate flooring and a full bathroom with walk-in shower constructed of marble and river rocks. The basement area is also a great place to gather for board/video games or a friendly game of foosball.

All rooms and bunk bed feature the uber-comfy, exclusive “Marriott Bed” (9” deep foam mattress on a 10 ½” box spring). There are also sleeper sofas (queen & twin), chaise lounge, and a twin over full bunk bed available for additional guests. All bed and bath linens provided; down-alternative duvets used.

Enjoy all your home-cooked meals or morning espresso at our custom built farm table that extends to 10 feet and seats up to 14. Grill and eat the day’s catch at the picnic table on the lower back patio. Make s’mores and share tales of the day around the fire pit or challenge one another to horseshoes.

Great house, amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed last weekend with friends from all over the country who were in town for a wedding. It was the perfect place for a reunion. Everyone had plenty of space, beds were all comfortable, no waiting for a bathroom because there were plenty, and the list goes on. We couldn't have enjoyed it more. Thank you for your hospitality. We have already recommended your place to several people.

Awesome location near Salmon River

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Henry's cabin and we enjoyed our visit once again. The upgraded basement and additional beds were a nice upgrade. All the amenities you need are here after a long day of fishing on the river. I highly recommend this cabin. We plan to stay at this cabin as our annual tradition. Thanks for your hospitality!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This was a great get away. The cabin is beautiful inside and out. There was no cable/dish for the television which was perfect. It was nice not to have the television to sit in front of. It was very peaceful being in the country.

Beautiful cabin, close to river

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the nicest place we have ever stayed in our 10 years fishing the Salmon River. The size and comfort of this house is perfect for our group to relax at the end of a long day fishing. The cabin is close to the upper and lower fly fishing zones. We plan to stay there once again in 2015 and look forward to many more years.

Fantastic cabin experience!

  • 5 of 5

Henry's cabin was exactly what we were looking for; a comfortable place away from the city to relax. It's close enough to major roads that the trip form Toronto was easy, but secluded enough that you don't hear anyone around. Not far from fishing or waterfalls and easy to pick up groceries en route. The description outlined exactly what we expected and the real beds were incredibly comfortable.

Great cottage and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean, well maintained and sits on a beautiful property. If you're looking for a quiet, secluded getaway this is a great place. As the trip organizer everyone else in the group continuously commented on how amazing the place was. Additionally, I should mention that Henry was very responsive, thoughtful and happily answered all of our questions. We can't wait to stay here again!
