Property description

If you're seeking solitude and privacy in a natural setting and prefer an attractive, clean, and well cared for cabin, then this is the place for you! Welcome to Creekside, located on 39-forested acres in the Adirondack Region of New York State. The property has 420 feet of waterfront on both sides of the winding sandy-bottomed Big Creek, also known as Jenny Creek. The cabin itself is situated in a sunny open area surrounded on all sides by dense evergreen forest just 75 feet from a bluff overlooking the creek. Tall majestic pines line the bank above the waters edge. Gradual steps lead down the embankment to the creek. The property is quiet and private, yet easily accessible. No other houses are visible from our property in any direction. The view across the creek is of unspoiled forest with rock cliffs to the north.

This cozy cabin is both charming and comfortable, making even rainy days into a pleasant experience. West facing French doors off the living area open wide onto the screened porch for views of the water and the setting sun. The cabin features a cathedral ceiling over an open living and kitchen area, one bedroom, plus a handcrafted log staircase leads to an easily accessible full-height loft with both a sleeping area and a cozy nook for reading and relaxing. This small, intimate cabin is ideally suited for two people; four is the maximum occupancy.

Canoe, kayak and fish right here on Big Creek or on nearby rivers and lakes. When water is high, the adventuresome can take the one-mile canoe trip from the cabin downstream to the Oswegatchie River. Observe the abundant wildlife at your doorstep from a wide-ranging variety of bird-life to beaver, mink, ducks, and fish swimming in the creek to occasional deer, turkeys, and foxes passing through.

PARENTS: please be aware that the cabin is set up to accommodate adults and older children. It is not well suited for very young children. Additionally, the yard has a steep 15 foot embankment dropping abruptly into the deepest part of the creek (6 to 10 feet or more water depth depending upon overall creek levels at any given time). The creek itself is readily accessible from the shore and the dock, and has an uneven bottom with sudden drop-offs.

We are located in the western Adirondacks just outside the park, near the village of Harrisville, New York, just 15 minutes east of Lake Bonaparte and 30 minutes west of Wanakena and Cranberry Lake. Situated near the border of St. Lawrence and Lewis counties, Creekside is an hour's drive from Alexandria Bay and the Thousand Islands, an hour from Canada and the International Bridge at Ogdensburg, and forty-five minutes from the Tug Hill Plateau.

For shorter stays in May and October, or for discounts for stays of 2 weeks or longer, please contact the Owner for Pricing.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We can't get enough of nature! We live on a mountain in a semi-rural area of upstate NY. We've both worked in the human service field and spend as much time as life permits out of doors in nature, whether it's gardening, hiking, canoeing, biking, painting, or motorcycling. Nature feeds our spirits.

Why the Owner Chose Harrisville, NY, USA:
After many years of canoe camping throughout the Adirondacks, we impetuously decided to buy a place of our own. In making our decision we knew two things - our top priority was a private natural setting followed closely by having some kind of water nearby. We found both in Creekside. Our hearts ache every time we have to pack up and drive the five hours to home. There's a peacefulness here, almost as if time itself slows down. Creekside continues to be a true respite from the fast paced life of the northeast.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Although not widely advertised as are other parts of the ADK's, for those interested in exploring beyond the beaten path and the crowds, this area is abundant in hidden natural treasures. Ask about our Recreation document with multiple web links to a variety of activities. We're also not far from Canada! One of our favorite places to be is sitting with a cup of tea or coffee on the Adirondack chairs overlooking the creek. We have our binoculars with us, no place else to go, just waiting for wildlife to show up whether it's in the form of an interesting bird song, the beavers paddling quietly upstream, gazing at the changing colors of a sunset, or just watching the leaves turn color in the autumn - this is the life! And if you're a star gazer like us you'll appreciate the dark night sky and the brilliance of the Milky Way.
