When we arrived at the cabin we were pleasantly surprised by the overall condition and cleanliness of the cabin and property. We are used to staying at rustic places in Wisconsin where the condition of the cabins leaves a lot to be desired. Maria's cabin is very clean, well maintained and the atmosphere of the place helps you feel very relaxed and comfortable. Various pictures and other works of art are hung throughout the cabin, making the place quite interesting. The cabin is located above a really nice rapid and boulder field on the Schroon River and the constant sound of rushing water adds to the overall atmosphere of the cabin. The privacy is great, with no visible neighbors on either side of the cabin or across the river. The beds were very comfortable, and the fact that the cabin has internet access is great for those who can't get completely away from work. We hope that Maria continues to rent her cabin through VRBO so we can come back soon!
This house is not too far from the main highway and yet it feels very secluded and its super quiet. The view down to the Schroon River is so nice and relaxing. The house is set up nicely, with a small living room, dining area and kitchen with many amenities. I wish I had gotten a chance to use the wood stove! The central heating responds very quickly. Love the deck off the bedroom and living room, so you can wake up and have coffee overlooking the river and listening to the sounds of the water rushing over the rocks.
Somethings you might not know unless you stay here. It didn't seem like there was a clothes dryer? There was a washing machine in the bathroom and that was it. So if you like your clothes tumble dried this might be an issue for you. Bring paper towels and a box of kleenex if you like to use paper products. There is no garbage pick up, so if you make a lot of trash you will be hauling it to the landfill assuming its open the day you leave. The mattress is somewhat firm, and while I prefer pillow top, it didn't bother me. Although if you change positions in the bed there's a lot of creaking. The bathroom was a tad musty, so crack a window and may be bring a febreeze plugin.. The internet I found slow; adequate for looking stuff up, but not for browsing. While you are there, definitely eat at Lizzie Keays for their Prime Rib night and if you make it down to Saratoga Springs go to Druthers for their Pretzels and Beer Cheese. Also take note the path down to the river is not for the faint of heart and is awaiting repairs. While you don't need to be a hiker you need to have your wits about you and be very careful cause it's pretty steep and the ground is crumbley. I would not recommend kids/older people/people with injuries going at it alone. Maria was very nice and accommodating during the whole process.
For me, my major concerns are quiet, cleanliness, and comfort- and this did not disappoint. The view and sounds of the Schroon will take most of your cares away.
My family and I rented the cabin in mid July, 2016.
Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc ?
The cabin had everything we needed and more. We did cook in must of the time. There are few supermarkets withing 30 min. of the cabin. The washing machine and dryer were working fine.
Was the property clean and well-maintained ?
The cabin was clean and well-maintained. Few MINOR items were in need of attention, Ex. the master bedroom curtain allows morning light in and the cabin gets a bit warm during the day.
Did the owner provide good customer service ?
Yes, we had trouble finding the key and we were able to talk and solve the issue.
Would you recommend this property to your friends or relatives ?
I would both recommend and use the cabin again.
What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike near by ?
We visited and had a great time at Lake George Village, The Natural Stone Bridge, The beach at Hague and fort Ticonderoga, We also drove to NH and visited Polar Caves and Lost river gorge.
The cabin is homey and relaxing especially since Schroon River is literally at your back door. Cabin has all the essentials you would need to cook a meal which was a plus for my family. The location is definitely off the beaten path so not much around. We enjoyed our stay, however, I do wish the bed mattresses were a bit more comfortable.
We loved our stay at Maria's house. There's a great well-appointed kitchen, which is very important to me, since I like to cook. There are lovely views and the amazing sound of the Schroon river pouring into your windows., It felt private, safe, and well cared for. I hope to be back soon!
