"We stayed for 6 days to unwind and relax by the lake....mission accomplished! This is an upscale property by anyone's standards....everything is well maintained and all linens and towels are supplied....the owner Connie is super responsive and manages this property seriously and professionally. The setting is beautiful....great dock, fire pit, and ample beach to launch your kayak or rowboat.....the house is sufficiently set back from the road to ensure quiet evenings.....we would come back anytime."

"My husband and I came to Old Forge for our first time, along with our four children (ages 3-9), for a snowmobile weekend. Barb and Doug met us at the house upon arrival and my first impression of anything is that these folks are two of the kindest, most accommodating and helpful people I've ever met; the kind of people you would love to have in your own family. As for the home - I fell in love immediately. Its so beautiful and so charming, so many lovely details that you only find in a home this age. There is nothing 'modern' about the architecture or style, which is precisely the appeal. You feel like you're back in time, from the beautiful wallpaper to the gorgeous wood trim and details; the glass and brass doorknobs, the hard word flooring and beautiful wood built-ins. People who own homes like this tend to live in them, preserve them, and rarely share their beauty. Barb and Doug open their home to guests lucky enough to find the time to visit. Our children loved the home and were enamored with endless 'hide-n-seek' possibilities; none of us wanted to leave... so the day after we arrived home we booked another weekend! One last comment, and I've read several of the same - the house is SPOTLESS. I mean to say, I walked around in light blue and white socks for 4 days and there was not a hint of dirt on any of my socks - MY SOCKS!!! I don't even know how that's possible! So if you're looking for cleanliness, comfort, charm... a place where you KNOW you want to go back to as soon as you can... THIS is your place! Thank you Doug and Barb, it was a pleasure and we look forward to staying in your beautiful home again!"

"A very comfortable cabin, in the middle of natural bounty. Those early morning views of summit from the BBQarea/Hall is something that I will cherish forever. At the peak of summer the mornings were just perfect with gentle breeze that relaxes you totally. Not much of flies outside.
Well furnished kitchen/Hall/Bed and bath. Bedrooms (6 separate beds) are upstairs and we all had a good night sleep. There is only one bath (standing and not a bathtub) though. Might be a concern if all of the inmates want to bath and start at the same time.
No difficulty in finding the routes (GPS was accurate), but you may or may not have cellular network. (My network coverage was lost near Herkimer town, ~10 miles from cabin). Nearest Walmart, in Herkimer town had all the groceries/items we needed. You are setting out to live with nature, so don't expect WiFi. Very thankful to Paul and his family for allowing us to stay and for providing us a memorable experience."

Perfect place for making family memories that will last Forever!
"My extended family enjoy our week in the Mountians. This was the perfect location for swimming, wildlife observering, and just relaxing in the warm mountain sunshine. The house is in excellent condition and very clean. I am looking forward to coming again next summer. It is also convenient to local activity. We highly recommend fishing on the Moose River."
