Property description

Welcome to The King’s Gathering, a private four bedroom, two bathroom log cabin 1.5 miles south of the Salmon River and the famous lower fly zone in Altmar, NY. Host up to 12 people in our well-appointed 2,300 sq. ft. vacation home offering antiques and modern day conveniences. After catching your salmon or steelhead, hiking or cross-country skiing through our 63 wooded acres surrounded by state and county land, riding an ATV or snowmobile on area trails minutes from the property, or perhaps kayaking or canoeing in nearby ponds or rivers, rest assured of a great night’s sleep.

Each room is named after a fish that can be caught in the Salmon River. The 'King Room' offers a king bed and is on the main level surrounded by the natural logs. The 'Coho Room' sleeps two on a queen bed and is painted the deep greens you would find on this fish. The 'Brown Trout Room' is painted a rich Governor's Gold similar to the coloration of this fish and simply appointed. The blue 'Rainbow Trout Room' offers two twin beds with accents of red found on this gorgeous fish.

All rooms feature the uber-comfy, exclusive “Marriott Bed” (9” deep foam mattress on a 10 ½” box spring). There are also queen sleeper sofas available for additional guests. All bed and bath linens provided; down-alternative duvets used.

Enjoy all your home-cooked meals or morning espresso at our custom built farm table that extends to 10’ and seats up to 14. Grill and eat the day’s catch at the picnic table on the lower back patio. Make s’mores and share tales of the day around the fire pit or challenge one another to horseshoes. Relax in our family room or continue the fun with a DVD, the Wii (batteries not included), board games and cards.

The cabin is 6.4 miles from Exit 34 on I-81 at NY-104 E in the Happy Valley region. Pulaski is 10 miles west. Tug Hill region renowned for incredible snow accumulations is 20 minutes north/east. 35 minutes south is Syracuse (and Syracuse International Airport) with shopping at Destiny USA, one of the top ten largest malls in America. Sackets Harbor and Watertown are 45 minutes north on I-81. Thousand Islands and Alexandria Bay are an hour north. 40 minutes' drive south and you can experience Sylvan Beach Amusement Park, the 'Coney Island' of central NY, and Turning Stone Casino. We are one hour from Skaneateles Lake (one of the Finger Lakes and the edge of wine country).

GENERAL ACTIVITIES IN THE AREA

This is a fun place, after all! Here are the things you CAN do, but are subject to change without advisement.
