Caroga Lake cabin description

The Adirondack Mountains offer one of the most beautiful places in the U.S. year round. Auskerada is located in the Adirondacks, and offers a great vantage point for exploring all of what upper New York state has to offer. Auskerada (Aus-ker-a-da), meaning 'the stream of many fishes,' is one of several Mohawk Indian names for the East Canada Creek. Auskerada provides a private and comfortable place to settle in, with a natural stone, wood-burning fireplace and modern amenities,including wireless internet,digital cable, and free statewide long distance.

The cabin has rustic charm that only a cabin can offer. Beautifully decorated with original Adirondack style pieces by the owner, Auskerada offers 3 bedrooms, and sleeps 6. A great lodge for a romantic weekend getaway or a top quality vacation week for you and your family. Relax in our year-round comfortable setting.

Our guests reviews certainly speak for themselves. Using words as 'AMAZING', 'CLEAN', 'PEACEFUL', 'PRIVATE', 'BEAUTIFUL', 'QUIET', and 'PERFECT'. We know that all the hard work that we've put into this lodge was well worth it and the response from our guests is the greatest reward.

Our rooms and living spaces are elegant, comfortable, and inviting. Every view out any window reminds you of why you chose this cabin. The grounds are nicely landscaped in the Adirondack style and is perfect any time of year.

The inside is rustic Adirondack charm! Comfortable log beds and bedding with plenty of seating for everyone. Enjoy 'Pine's Peak' our screened in private balcony with only forest views. Our spring fed well offers the most delicious glass of water imaginable. After drinking our water, bottled water tastes funny.

The wood burning stone fireplace and mantle is inviting and harkens back to a simpler time bringing together friends, family, and acquaintances. The coffee is ALWAYS on us! Enjoy a fresh ground cup of coffee any time of the day. Inside you'll find a generous supply of games and puzzles to encourage quality family time. If being outdoors is your 'thing', a hiking trail right at your door goes on for miles or walk down to the lake to fish, relax on the dock, swim, or canoe with the 2 man canoe we provide.

It has to be clean!! Auskerada is a newly renovated 'upper-quality' lodge. We strive to maintain a very clean, and allergy-free environment. Therefore, we do not allow pets. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
