Caroga Lake cottage description

Tucked in among the large boulders and mature trees, this secluded property is only a 5 minute walk to its deeded access on West Caroga Lake and abuts over 60,000 undeveloped acres of state land known as the Ferris Lake Wild Forest Preserve. The preserve offers endless miles of trails that wind through some of the most beautiful terrain imaginable, all accessible right outside the front door.
Completed in early 2013, StoneHaven was custom designed and built by it's owners to incorporate the luxury of modern and efficient technology into a rustic package. This concept allows visitors to experience the more premium comforts of a home while the décor and setting provide a true Adirondack “camp” experience.
An open floor plan allows an opportunity to engage in conversation, entertain and keep an eye on children all from any vantage point on the first floor. Complement your meals in the dining area with a gaze out the large picture window which affords an uninterrupted view of nature at its finest. Be sure to appreciate the old world craftsmanship of the custom made kitchen cabinetry built in primitive design and utilizing traditional construction methods. Also take note that the walls and ceiling on the first floor as well as most of the trim throughout the house are comprised of knotty pine that was reclaimed and milled locally from the trees that were harvested from the property prior to construction.
Don’t be too surprised to find your morning coffee or evening drink interrupted by a visit from one or more members of our local wildlife community which may include: fox, deer, turkey, chipmunk, possum, rabbit, fisher, mink, raccoon, black bear, bobcat, and many others.
From our family to yours...We sincerely hope that you enjoy your visit here at StoneHaven! Please- relax, unwind and be happy!

                        The cabin was in such a nice area. There was everything we needed in the house. The owners were very nice and very easy to work with. The house was so neat and tidy, and wonderfully decorated. I would absolutely rent the cabin again.

                        My partner and I decided to go to the ADK for the first time. We wanted to spend a nice relaxing weekend together and with our dogs. Stone Haven had everything we looked for. Its pet friendly which was a big thing for us. The location has miles of trails which we both enjoyed but more importantly the dogs had a blast running on the trails. We didnt get in our car to go anywhere, which is exactly what we wanted. We could walk everywhere, the trails, the lake and the local general store. It turned out to be such a beautiful location and really nice and quiet. The house, was clean and really well equipped. You just have to bring yourself and food. If you really dont want to do anything except stay in the house, the space is comfy to lay back and just watch movies or play cards and eat. There was still some snow on the ground when we were there, but we realize how nice it must be during the summer. So we are looking forward to going back for some R&R during a warmer period of the year. However, we also see the potential of spending a really nice winter vacation, playing in the snow, snow shoeing and keeping warm by the fire. We also recommend the location for a family with children or for a weekend with some friends. Finally, the information provided to us by the owners about the property and amenities was very clear. We had the chance to talk to them while we were staying there and they even recommended places to go or things to do. We loved our experience at Stone Haven and would recommend it to anybody.

                        Our stay in the house was excellent. Everything we needed for a comfortable little getaway was provided. The house was clean and neat and wonderfully decorated. The open floor plan made for easy interaction amongst our friends. The scenery is gorgeous. The owner worked with us the entire way to make sure our time was as comfortable and enjoyable as possible.

                        We loved our stay at stone haven. The cabin was cozy and had everything we needed. There were hiking trails a very short walk from the cabin and plenty of room for our dog to run around outside. We would definitely stay here again!

                        I recently visited Stonehaven Cottage with four other adults for a family weekend celebration. The cottage was very easy to navigate to, yet it was secluded enough to provide some privacy from the other houses around. From the moment we walked in, we all felt very comfortable and relaxed. The decor is great, making it feel like you are in a rustic log cabin. It was very comfortable for five adults, with more than enough room to relax in the living room or kitchen and ample sleeping quarters for everyone. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for preparing our meals, and the Netflix on the TV was a popular attraction for everyone, especially on the rainy Saturday. The woodstove was a great addition and provided more than enough warmth to keep the cottage heated to a very comfortable temperature. We walked to the nearby lake in under 5 minutes, and did some ice skating. It is a beautiful area and we even got to see some wildlife in the backyard! I am looking forward to returning in the summer or fall to enjoy the surrounding lakes and mountains for some kayaking and hiking. Thanks Trent for making it a very enjoyable stay!

                        StoneHaven is a hidden gem located in beautiful southeastern part of the Adirondacks. From the moment you walk in you see how the owners put a lot of thought and heart into every detail of the home, from the comfortable open layout living, dining area and kitchen, to the simple yet uniquely decorated three bedrooms upstairs. We spent a week here with our two children (3 and 7) and never unpacked our massive toy bag as there were wonderful toys and games hidden in secret toy chests and shelves waiting to be discovered. The wood stove worked amazingly well keeping the downstairs area and floor warm and cozy. We spent many days teaching our children how to ski at Mount Royal, less than 10 minutes away. One day I even managed to sneak away and take a cross country skiing lesson at the Lapland Vacation Center about 25 minutes away. They have a great "Ski like a Finn" package for wanna-be-Finns like myself ;) Finally, we found a charming Mohawk Coop in nearby Gloversville where we regularly replenished our food with local, sustainable goodies like fresh milk, eggs, cheese, and jam. We have already begun spreading the word with our family and friends and hope for a little availability come Spring/Summer when we intend to explore StoneHaven after the thaw! Marianne-in-Boston

                        Manager response: We are always so happy to hear stories of other families enjoying StoneHaven and all of the wonderful activities the surrounding area has to offer. You were wonderful guests and it was an absolute pleasure working with you! Also, thank you for mentioning the "Mohawk Co-op" Store in Gloversville... It is such a great little place and we need to add this to our list of local attractions in our Visitors Welcome Package as I am sure many guests would be interested in enjoying locally produced organic foods. Please do consider returning to Caroga Lake after the "thaw" as there are so many things to enjoy year-round in the area...we would love to have you!

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About: Trent and Patty Atkinson purchased a vacation home in Caroga Lake in the summer of 2007 which would come to be lovingly referred to as 'CrookedWood'. In 2010, they received confirmation that Patty was pregnant with their first child. Although they simply adored their little slice of Adirondack heaven, Trent had determined that the costs associated with renovating CrookedWood to make it 'kid compliant' were not feasible. Coincidentally, at that exact same time their neighbor had made an offer to sell a portion of his property located directly adjacent to them. And thus the idea of 'StoneHaven' was born. CrookedWood was subsequently sold to family friends and Trent began the design and construction of a new slightly larger, more kid friendly, and much more energy-efficient home. Every aspect of the home was carefully planned out in order to maximize use while minimizing size. Also, consideration of environmental impact, both short-term and long-term, had a major influence on every detail of the design. On January 1 of 2013 they officially proclaimed 'construction complete'. StoneHaven is now the second home of the Atkinson Family...Trent, Patty, Harper, Hudson and their yellow labrador Murphy.
