The Cottage in Benson is located right off Route 30 in the Town of Benson, Hamilton County, 3 miles north of the village of Northville. The Cottage offers easy access to all your favorite summer activities. The Great Sacandaga Lake boat launch is 5 minutes away. It is perfect for a couple but big enough for 6 or 7 adults or a group of 8 plus if there are young children. It offers an environment equally suited for relaxing all day by the river or returning each evening after a great day trip. Enjoy the deck, grill & fire pit.

Golf: There are a number of very nice courses within traveling distance. We love Fox Run in Johnstown and a trip to Inlet is worth it. Locally there is a great 9 hole course in the Sacandaga Park.

Ski: Lapland Cross Country skiing is 'down the road,' only six miles from the cottage.
