Weekend college visit
Roomy cabin on river - lots of bedding, kitchen items, great fireplace. All we needed to be comfortable!
Great place for a weekend getaway. Very easy to get to Clarkson and suny Potsdam! Thank you.
SUNY Potsdam Family Weekend
Absolutely wonderful. So much better than renting a hotel room. We felt at home. The cabin and location was ideal. Thank you for everything.
Loved the river
Absolutely loved the deck and location. Had a great time and relaxed alot! Would stay again!
Although the cottage is quite large with plenty of space to have a relaxing vacation, it is in desperate need of a top-to-bottom cleaning. I was very unimpressed with the dead bugs, the cobwebs, and all the dust. Additionally, the neighbors' kids/grandkids could be quite noisy first thing in the morning. The house also had a closed up, musty smell for the first day and a half that we were there until it got aired out. The deck overhanging the river was pleasant though.
In the future, we will look for a different, much cleaner cottage to enjoy our vacations. For the price that we paid, I expected better.
Thank you for your feedback. We do a thorough cleaning at the beginning of the season and of course clean after each guest. However, it sounds like it could use more attention. It is a camp, so it isn't perfect, but we will certainly do a better job in the future.
Make sure you understand the accomodations
We stayed one week in late July 2019. The home was large and open, with high ceilings. It could have been cleaner but was acceptable to us. The listing could have had more pictures, and a clearer understanding that there is no TV reception there and that outside of a single window air conditioner the home is going to be very warm. We could not use the master BR because of the temperatures and that BR had no window to place the A/C unit into, only 4 sliding glass doors to the room. We ended up sleeping in the den/TV room downstairs on cushions. The owner was hard to communicate with and did not always respond to questions.
This cottage is located in northern New York. It is a beautiful area within one and a half hours of Lake Placid, Saranac Lake and Ottawa, Canada. It is within a few minutes of Canton and Potsdam New York. There are many hiking trails, lakes and rivers which offer boating, fishing and swimming. Nearby Saranac Lake has wonderful summer theater and Lake Placid has world class skiing.
