Overview

About the property

4 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Welcome to The King’s Gathering, a private four bedroom, three bathroom log cabin on three levels 1.5 miles south of the Salmon River and the famous lower fly zone in Altmar, NY. Host up to 12 people in our well-appointed 2,300 sq. ft. vacation home offering antiques and modern day conveniences. After catching your salmon or steelhead, hiking or cross-country skiing through our 63 wooded acres surrounded by state and county land, riding an ATV or snowmobile on area trails minutes from the property, or perhaps kayaking or canoeing in nearby ponds or rivers, rest assured of a great night’s sleep.

Each room is named after a fish that can be caught in the Salmon River. The 'King Room' offers a king bed on the main level surrounded by logs adjacent to a full bath. Upstairs features three bedrooms and a full bathroom. On this floor, the 'Coho Room' sleeps two on a queen bed and is painted the deep greens you would find on this fish. The 'Brown Trout Room' is painted a rich gold similar to the coloration of this fish. The blue 'Rainbow Trout Room' offers two twin beds with accents of red found on this gorgeous fish. The basement features slate flooring and a full bathroom with walk-in shower constructed of marble and river rocks. The basement area is also a great place to gather for board/video games or a friendly game of foosball.

All rooms and bunk bed feature the uber-comfy, exclusive “Marriott Bed” (9” deep foam mattress on a 10 ½” box spring). There are also sleeper sofas (queen & twin), chaise lounge, and a twin over full bunk bed available for additional guests. All bed and bath linens provided; down-alternative duvets used.

Enjoy all your home-cooked meals or morning espresso at our custom built farm table that extends to 10 feet and seats up to 14. Grill and eat the day’s catch at the picnic table on the lower back patio. Make s’mores and share tales of the day around the fire pit or challenge one another to horseshoes.

Absolutely a great place - Fantastic house, clean, lots of privacy, owners are great to deal with and have attention to detail. Many of the things travelers often forget are in the house for a great convenience. A wonderful place to stay - Dave B.

Very Nice House to rent.

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything that was described in the info for the house. It had very comfy beds and also plenty of cook ware and dishes. We had 12 guys for a fishing trip and we had plenty of dishes and pots and pans. the Fridge is also a big one and has lots of room. Henry had wood ready for a fire also. The only thing we found bad was the bugs were real bad. But we will defiantly be back next year for another stay for our fishing trip. Also parking was great for our 6 boats and didn't even have to park in the grass and had access to plug ins for the boats also.
