Gouverneur cabin description

August 2014. Summer is in full swing. The pool is open for business with a new liner.
Check out the new video with updated photos of the property.

Ready for a quiet get away with that special person?

This log cabin is named Whispering Water because of the scenic water fall views of the Oswegatchie River from the living room, master bed room and deck.

Hardwood floors throughout. Large master bedroom with queen bed and picture windows facing the river. 2 small bedrooms, each with double bed. Air conditioning both levels.

The swimming pool and deck are perched at the river's edge. The porch overlooking the pool and river is screened for sitting out at night. A 2 person hot tub on the deck is available year round.


Explore the northcountry with day trips to the Adirondacks, 1000 Islands, Ottawa or Kingston Ontario. (If you plan to go to Canada, remember your passport or enhanced driver's license.)
Or just kick back with a good book and relax to the sounds of the river.

Lakes with public boat access are located in the area. We will provide a canoe and accessories for those would like to explore local lakes and rivers. Bring your fishing poles.

Amish farms and shops are numerous in Saint Lawrence County.

If you enjoy road biking, you can ride from the cabin on miles of rural country roads that are lightly traveled. We can guide you with routes from 2 to 40+ miles that wander thru the countryside.

In addition, 4 colleges are located nearby:
25 miles to Canton (Canton College, Saint Lawrence University)
35 miles to Potsdam (Potsdam College, Clarkson University)
Staying at Whispering Water is unique way for the family to be together during visits to the colleges for graduations or special events.

It is 20 miles to Fort Drum if you are considering a visit that doubles as a vacation for the family.

The property is offered for rent all four seasons. Fall colors are brilliant with many maples trees in view. During a winter retreat the pellet stove provides penetrating warmth. Winter is a wonderful time to relax and reflect.
The cabin gives a deep woods feel while being close to a small town.

A word of caution:
Since the property is surrounded on 3 sides by rapid water and steep rock ledges that drop to the water's edge, we do not encourage visitors staying at the cabin with very young children. Close supervision near the river and at the pool is a must.

                      Car: Necessary

                      'Nearby' is a relative term. We have not listed skiing, but within 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive there is skiing at Titus Mountain, Tupper Lake, Turin, Dry Hill, Whiteface. A Snowmobiling trailhead is within a 15 minute drive. Great museums in Ottawa, 1 1/2 hr away. Movie theaters are 1/2 hour away. A nice 9 hole golf course is just up the road. Ice fishing anyone?
