About Giovanni Cagnolati
The cabin is owned by my self and my father. I am a young architect interested in historic preservation, restoration, and land management.
Giovanni Cagnolati purchased this Cabin in 1995
Why Giovanni Cagnolati chose Jay
The property is a real gem with beautiful forests, great river access, and charming Adirondack architecture. When we purchased it, the cabin had been left to deteriorate, so we put in quite of bit of work to restore it to it's original condition (except where would could improve the amenities without compromising the character). We had used it as a family camp for a number of years. Because we were only there a couple times a year, though, we felt that it was under enjoyed. So we opened it to the public so that more people could experience its unique charm.

Peaceful and tranquil!
Loved every minute we spent. Could not have picked a better spot, thank you for sharing your piece of paradise with us!!
Great getaway cabin
This is a fantastic property if you want to get away to a secluded location. The cabin is as advertised - an authentic Adirondack log cabin with tons of history and charm. Rustic, clean and comfortable.
Jim the caretaker was great - very helpful and accommodating. I highly recommend reaching out to him for any questions or help you need for your stay. I will definitely be back!
We loved our stayed and couldn’t be happier with the service provided. This is really a diamond in a rough . If you’re looking for peace and contact with nature. This is the place to be.
I’ll be back in the summer for sure
A mostly quiet and rustic log cabin
As advertised, this is a restored log cabin in the woods. For those seeking some privacy away from the crowded areas of Lake Placid this may do the trick. But a few notes that may make a difference that we were not aware of when booking. The cabin is down a very very long dirt road from the main road. This was inconvenient when making trips in and out of the property, especially at night. Also, this dirt road is shared with a logging road so you have to beware of large trucks. Because of the logging, and the fact that the cabin is across from a road despite the long road in, it is not as quiet as we expected. Even on weekends. The amenities of the cabin were nice, having a modern kitchen and bath were key while having the rustic other features. WiFi was unreliable for those needing it beyond occasional or casual use.
Absolutely wonderful place to stay.
Perfect cabin on the river.
The cabin we've been looking for
The Deerlands is fabulous. Total privacy. The kitchen is much nicer than you typically find in a cabin. Nice appliances. Well appointed. The fireplace is awesome. Nice screened in porch with a large dining room table… views of the river through the trees. There is a road right on the other side of the river, but we saw only a few cars the four days we were there. As other reviewers have mentioned, the living room is dark. Perfectly fine for sitting by a crackling fire, but too dark for reading.
The master bedroom has a very comfortable queen-size bed. In the other rooms, the bunk beds are more like what you'd expect to find in a log cabin: a foam pad on plywood. The master bedroom has a dresser. The rooms with the bunks just have the beds – no place to put your clothes and things, but again, not a big deal.
The bathroom is nice. Everything works great. A second bathroom would be awesome, but it's do-able with the one.
As you get closer to the arrival date, the property manager connects you with Jim who gets you settled in and looks after the place. He's very helpful with finding the place and answering any questions. Would be helpful to be connected with him earlier in the process.
One of the reviews from 2014 mentions that there's a washer and dryer. They must be in the basement, which is now locked and inaccessible. Not a problem for us as we were only there four days.
All in all, a truly great cabin which we hope to return to next year.
