Cozy comfortable cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect spot for a total "getaway" from today's busy hectic lives. You aren't far from civilization here but have the feel of total privacy. We enjoyed a 3 day break in this cosy cabin and were surprised at the number of amenities provided. It was spotless, had plenty of hot water and a very comfortable bed. We kept looking for the loons that live on the lake but they must have left for their winter home when the temperatures dipped into the 30's!

Great cabin in a nice location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Bear Cabin with our family of four. Very nice accommodations with friendly and kind hosts. All as promised and all the extras were well thought out from kitchen supplies to camp-fire needs. Made for a relaxing, low stress stay. Great location and easy to get to many Adirondack adventures - hiking, shopping etc. Kayaks (canoes and rowboats available also) were great for exploring the lake and a dock for fishing. Highly recommended.

Great cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in Bear Cabin. The pictures that the hosts provided truly represent the cabin and its surroundings. It was so relaxing, quiet and pretty, yet close to so many other vacation activities. It is the ideal place for a family. A pleasant surprise was the sand beach with a life guard within a short walking distance.

We spent a week in Bear cabin and it felt like home. Great location. The lake is beautiful. John and Kelly are wonderful and keep the place so nice. The cabin is beautiful and so clean!!!! Everything you need is there and having the boats there to use is great!! We brought our two teenagers (13 & 16) and they loved the boating and fishing right outside the door. John was so helpful in giving us a few fishing pointers. We loved it and had a great time. Thank You John and Kelly ! The Foley's
