About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)


One Bedroom ( 1BR ), One Bathroom ( 1BA ), Seasonal Cottage. Sleeps Two - Queen Bed. Separate Stairway leads to Private Swimming Area, Dock and your own Rowboat.

Our charming lake cottage, Viewette, has been recently remodeled and is just perfect for a couple's get-away. Viewette is located within the southwestern portion of the Adirondack State Park, eight miles from Route 12 (one hour north of Utica, or 1 hour south of Watertown, New York).

Viewette is nestled among the hemlocks and hardwoods. The great room is open but still cozy with comfortable seating by the woodburning stove. Three space heaters are also provided which can take the chill off of the early mornings during the spring and fall months. The conversation area includes a couch and antique wicker chairs. The dining area has a table for four. The remodeled kitchen includes plenty of counter space, a gas range, a microwave, a coffeemaker and a large refrigerator. You will find all the cooking and eating utensils needed to prepare meals at the cottage. The recently redecorated bedroom has a queen bed.

A separate stairway leads you down to your private dock and sandy-bottomed swimming area. A rowboat and life vests are provided. Brantingham Lake is underground-spring fed - it's water is renown for its high quality. The Brantingham community organization monitors and maintains these high standards of excellence.

Open winding country roads are perfect for cycling through the river valley's panoramic views. There are many local, well-maintained hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and ATV trails. A topographic map is displayed at the front door. Our extensive information packet includes directions to five waterfalls, day hikes, canoeing excursions and current local activities. Bring your fishing gear! There is great fishing in Brantingham Lake and local streams; both indigenous and stocked varieties. smallmouth, largemouth, and rock bass, lake trout, brown trout, walleye, and yellow perch thrive in these waters. (One of the fisherman's favorite spots is just in front of our lake shore, but you can fish from the dock! We supply a lake-bottom contour map.) A row boat is provided.

Brantingham's 18 hole public golf course is conveniently located 5 minutes away.

Local Restaurants offer great food, nightly specials and nightlife.

An Old Fashioned Drive-In Theater shows double features during the warmer weekends and is located only 8 miles away.

My girlfriend and I stayed in the Viewette and absolutely loved it. The cottage was wonderful and the surrounding area was gorgeous. We had so much fun and so many memories. Val and Tom were so easy to work with and truly great people. I would highly recommend staying at the Viewette.
