About Cheryl

The love of nature and desire to be near water with peaceful surroundings has always been a dream of mine. After living in Ma all my life, I moved here to the beautiful Adirondacks in 2009 with my husband Doug.

Cheryl purchased this cabin in 2006

Cheryl purchased this studio in 2010

Why Cheryl chose Town of Benson

Doug and I enjoy the challenge of finding undesirable properties in dire need of rehabbing. It must have the right location though. We somehow have seen their potential, where most would have run away..fast!

When we first looked at this neglected, overgrown property with a poorly laid out, run down cabin, we excitedly began brainstorming on how to transform this ugly duckling into the peaceful, charming beauty it is now. The bigger the challenge the greater our motivation. With a lot of ideas, hard work, some hired carpenters when the tasks were just too much. the dream was complete.The final result..a cozy,rustic, yet updated cabin with an exceptional view of the Sacandaga River.

We did all that while our home, and jobs were in MA. We lived in MA, but our hearts longed for the day we could make Northville (Benson) NY our home. Well...long story short, in 2009 we sold our home in MA and moved into the cabin while our home next door was being built. Ten months later we moved out of the cabin into our new home.

The cabin was just too special to not share with others so we decided to offer it as a vacation rental. Now into it's 5th successful year, our many very pleased, happy guests long to return. The numerous comments left in our guest book along with the rave reviews on the Home Away site speak for themselves.

What makes this studio unique

We strive to make vacations for each of our guests special, while creating wonderful memories, which will leave our guests longing to return! The many amenities along with it's appealing, comfortable furnishings, peaceful river views with nature surrounding the cabin make this a unique vacation destination.

We welcome you to experience this wonderful exceptionally cozy, romantic cabin as so many guests have already!

Peaceful Studio with Balcony

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two nights and loved it. Watched the hummingbirds on the balcony and ate at a few local restaurants. Right next to the river which you can hear from the studio and Cheryl was wonderful.

Located in the foothills of the Adirondacks in the town of Benson. This studio/suite has a great location over looking the Sacandaga River and is on a quiet dead end road. It's just above the huge 29 mile long Great Sacandaga Lake and only 4 miles from the quaint Village of Northville. You will feel that you just stepped back in time with it's charming appeal. All your needs and more are very close by with a grocery store, restaurants, antiquing, a great Adirondack gift store, five and dime, an old fashion hardware store, ice cream parlor, a gourmet coffee shop, an adorable new boutique,gas stations, banks and a farmers market (Fridays) in the warmer weather.

Hike right from this studio/suite to a beautiful waterfall 1/2 mile away, or through the woods to a beaver pond about 1 mile away. There are many hiking trails close by for easy to challenging hikes.

Winter season is quite beautiful and Lapland Lake cross country ski resort is only 6 miles away.

Oak mountain down hill skiing is 30 minutes away

Gore Mountain is 1 hour away.

The location is perfect to use as a base to explore the Adirondacks or to stay right here and enjoy the tranquil river and peaceful surroundings.
