Great skiing weekend
Great skiing weekend
The cabin proved to be a perfect weekend escape from NYC. We drove up on a Friday night (approx 6 hours after stopping for groceries), and although it was late, the graciously stayed up to escort us to the location and providing an overview of the solar electricity, wood-burning stove, etc. The cabin is larger than it appears in the picture, and is constructed as a large room with a loft over the front-half of the cabin. It is actually quite spacious inside. There is one private bedroom with a queen-size bed, and a loft with a king-size bed. An inflatable mattress and large sofa allow for comfortable sleeping arrangements for six people. The electricity is solar with a gas-generator backup, and there was no cell-phone service (although there was a land-line phone connection). This proved to be rather enjoyable as we were all disconnected from email, web, etc. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating. We were late arriving on Friday evening, and the owner met us with no complaints to escort us to the cabin. We did have a minor leak from a loose drain-pipe under the kitchen sink, however this was promptly fixed when we notified the owner. We would certainly recommend this cabin for groups of 6 or less, everyone in our group agreed that we would like to return.

We spent a long weekend at the cottage and were very pleased. The location is remote, but a short drive to stores and the North way (I 87). The amenities can best be described as Adirondack elegance with great furnishings and all the comforts of home plus a great kitchen. Within hours of our arrival we both began to d-stress. We would highly recommend this for a weekend getaway or a longer stay. The owners are great host. Ed & Elizabeth, August 2011

About the owner: Steve and Diane Colletti live on the front piece of the property and run the pick your own pumpkin farm, It's About Thyme Farm, and the flower nursery in the spring, summer, and falls months. They have four children, three of who do not live at home. Steve also owns and runs an aquarium/pond business, Allbright Aquariums. They've lived in the Adirondacks for 8 years, and just this past year built the cabin.
Why the Owner Chose Minerva Lake:
The vacation rental wasn't purchased. It was built by the owners as a get away home, considering the decent amount of property the cabin sits on. VRBO is an idea that came after construction.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
The cabin offers many unique benefits. It has easy access to snowmobiling, hiking, and ATV trails that go on for miles. Within an hour's drive is outlet shopping, movie theaters, a mall, etc. The most popular aspect of the area is that Gore Mountain Ski Resort is a 10 minute drive from the property. However, in my personal opinion, the completely scerenity and peace that the property offers is the greatest benefit of all.
