Very remote, lovely cabin right on the water.

  • 4 of 5

It's a great cabin - much bigger than it appears in the pictures. We had everything we needed there! Scott and Phoebe were very welcome and when there was an unanticipated early cold snap during our stay Scott drove over late at night to help us light a fire and stay warm.

As others have said, the camp is nicer than the pictures show.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for a well appointed cabin in the woods. We enjoyed the pond, just fishing and relaxing on the dock. The location was central to our day trips to VT & the southern Adirondacks.

Beautiful, peaceful cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Scott and Phoebe's cabin for 4 weeks and loved it. Our 2 grandchildren who live in Saratoga Springs spent a lot of time with us and also loved it even without tv or wifi. We played lots of family games in the evenings and the boats and swimming kept us busy during the day. The cabin is lovely...much prettier than the pictures...with a huge screened in porch. We cook a lot and found that the kitchen had plenty of pots, pans and utensils. The grocery store was only 10 minutes away and the Library in Granville and Dunkin Donuts have free wifi. There is also a good laundromat there. We went to the races in Saratoga, about 55 minutes away. But mostly just stayed at the cabin and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Great place to slow down and relax!

Quaint cottage on a small private lake resulted in a very relaxing and nature filled vacation.

Property was neat and well maintained. The cottage was quaint yet provided all necessary features. The dock was large and perfect for enjoying nature. The water was clean and refreshing.
