The love of nature and desire to be near water with peaceful surroundings has always been a dream of mine. After living in Ma all my life, I moved here to the beautiful Adirondacks in 2009 with my husband Doug.
Cheryl purchased this cabin in 2006
Doug and I enjoy the challenge of finding undesirable properties in dire need of rehabbing. It must have the right location though. We somehow have seen their potential, where most would have run away..fast!
When we first looked at this neglected, overgrown property with a poorly laid out, run down cabin, we excitedly began brainstorming on how to transform this ugly duckling into the peaceful, charming beauty it is now. The bigger the challenge the greater our motivation. With a lot of ideas, hard work, some hired carpenters when the tasks were just too much. the dream was complete.The final result..a cozy,rustic, yet updated cabin with an exceptional view of the Sacandaga River.
We did all that while our home, and jobs were in MA. We lived in MA, but our hearts longed for the day we could make Northville (Benson) NY our home. Well...long story short, in 2009 we sold our home in MA and moved into the cabin while our home next door was being built. Ten months later we moved out of the cabin into our new home.
The cabin was just too special to not share with others so we decided to offer it as a vacation rental. Now into it's 5th successful year, our many very pleased, happy guests long to return. The numerous comments left in our guest book along with the rave reviews on the Home Away site speak for themselves.
We strive to make vacations for each of our guests special, while creating wonderful memories, which will leave our guests longing to return! The many amenities along with it's appealing, comfortable furnishings, peaceful river views with nature surrounding the cabin make this a unique vacation destination.
We welcome you to experience this wonderful exceptionally cozy, romantic cabin as so many guests have already!
I can't say enough about this wonderful property! The cabin was spotlessly clean and well equipped. There was nothing missing we could have asked for - there was even shampoo and conditioner in the shower! As many previous reviewers have noted, the bed was incredibly comfortable. Getting out of bed in the morning was the only chore of our day. Doug and Cheryl were very helpful throughout our short stay. Doug suggested a lovely hike for us to take, and was kind enough to let us interrupt his busy day to drive us up the river and supply tubes (and Cheryl dug up a floating cooler!) so we could tube back to the house. The location of this cabin is wonderful with riverfront views and close access to the lake. We were also able to use their kayaks for a quick trip out on the lake. We couldn't have asked for more and we will definitely be back again, hopefully for a longer stay!
Quiet. Peaceful. Great location. Beautiful area. Cabin was clean. Spotless. Looking forward to another stay. And sampling more of the local trails and waterfalls. And that little ice cream parlor in Northville.

This cabin was truly charming. The entire property was beautiful with a nice view of the lake in the front and across the road. We got in late Friday night and had enough daylight to walk down to the lake and hop across the stones, and then for a bike ride down the long dead end road along the lake which made for a scenic ride. We got up early on Saturday, enjoyed coffee on the porch while we watched the hummingbirds and squirrels do their thing. After a longer bike ride down the road and back, we explored the many trails behind the property which was awesome and challenging. There was a decent map of those trails inside the cabin. Back to the cabin for lunch and then headed to the lake and used Doug and Cheryl's kayaks. Kayaking on the lake was loads of fun. Riding the waves from the many speed boats and jet ski's going by and watching kids gets pulled by tubes and people water skiing was really cool. After cleaning up, we headed to Northville for dinner and ice cream. A truly perfect day. We had to leave early the next morning to get back on the road and sadly never got to enjoy the fire pit which was tucked privately behind the cabin. Doug and Cheryl were very easy going and kind. The cabin was very comfortable, cozy and clean. It showed a little age, but that made it all the more rustic and unique. Would love to visit again. Many thanks!
CABIN WAS VERY CLEAN AND HOMEY . DOUG AND CHERYL WERE EXCELLENT HOSTS,VERY EASY TO TALK WITH AND ALWAYS THERE TO ATTEND TO ANY QUESTIONS THAT WE HAD. "TOP NOTCH"!!
We enjoyed our stay in this charming little cabin near Northville in the Adirondacks. The bed was quite comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped. Plus we had plenty of light to read!
Our only objection was it was a little too close to the owners' home when he decided to mow the grass while we were sitting out trying to enjoy a glass of wine one evening.
This house is awesome! It has everything you need. The hosts are wonderful and allow you your privacy. Cheryl was gracious to extend our stay due to a booking error on my part. Lots of beautiful scenery right around the cabin or if you feel like driving, you will be well rewarded by the views. Thank you for a lovely stay.
The southern Adirondacks is the location of this awesome cabin in Benson NY, on a dead end road, with hardly any traffic.
The tranquil river view with nature all around you make this a truly special spot but, not so remote that you can't get to the quaint village of Northville only 4 miles away. You'll think you stepped back in time with it's restaurants, a grocery store, a farmers market (Tues and Fridays), a wonderful Adirondack gift store, a cute little boutique, five and dime, old fashion hardware store. ice cream parlor, coffee shop, gas, bank and drug store.
Sunday night summer concerts are just some of the wonderful things going on at the village park.
