About Denis and Anastasia
We fell in love with Gore when we first skied it over 10 years ago. We have been skiing Gore every week for the last 5 years and both of our children race at Gore.
Denis and Anastasia purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Denis and Anastasia chose Bakers Mills
We have purchased Angler's Rest from the family that built it. From the minute we saw the mountain views available from every window we knew that this is the cabin we have been searching for.
What makes this Cabin unique
There is just something special about Angler's Rest. From the moment you walk in and smell the White Pine that finishes the entire first floor, then see the spectacular views from the living room or swing in the front porch swing you will fall in love with this very special place. Front deck supports and railings were made from trees harvested on our property!

Excellent property - we highly recommend!
We stayed in this cabin for 5 nights and loved everything about it. The owners were very responsive and answered all of our numerous questions before arrival. The cabin was impeccably clean, and the furniture and design were of high quality and very lovely. Truly charming and comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked, it had all necessary cookware (including an electric kettle for the hot tea!), and we loved unique and charming dishes, plates and utensils. The cabin had high quality modern amenities including a very quiet dishwasher (which is not even listed on the website!), powerful washer and dryer, large fridge, and a large gas grill. Game room downstairs was a hit! The kids (and adults!) enjoyed air hockey, mini billiard, foosball table, and the selection of board games was great. We loved the decks with very comfortable patio furniture, and truly enjoyed the view of the mountain. The starry sky was breathtaking, and we even got to see the Perseid Meteor Shower! The house offered everything we needed and was in close proximity to various hiking trails, lake George, water parks and amusement parks. We would love to come again, and already have been thinking about it for our next vacation. Thank you, Anastasia and Denis for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful cabin!
Nice Cabin in a Quiet Spot in the Adirondacks
We enjoyed our stay in this excellent cabin. The weather didn't cooperate and so it limited our enjoyment of outdoor activities; it was rainy with some severe storms. The cabin had backup power, which worked well for over 12 hours before the power came back on. There were other factors that dampened our experience. There is no Verizon cell phone service in this area of Bakers Mills. It is not the fault of the owners. The blame belongs on the Johnsburg Board of Supervisors, who have not put a demand on cell phone companies to provide service. AT&T cell service is available in the area, but not many people who vacation there subscribe to AT&T, which is poorly regarded in most areas. I suspect the Town of Johnsburg subscribes to AT&T and gets a cost-saving rate for not allowing Verizon to adjust their tower signal to cover a wider area. Additionally, the road from Wevertown corner to past Bakers Mills (Route 8) is one of the roughest in the State of NY. It has not been paved in several years, just patched by the State road crews. Again, there aren't many voters in Bakers Mills and Sodom, the two communities served by Route 8 access. So, there is no incentive for a cash-strapped state to adequately serve the citizens of Baker's Mills, even though the road is quite heavily travelled. Lastly, the cabin had Internet service, which was affected by the harsh weather and power outages, but worked well when it was up and running, which was the majority of our time spent there. Frontier cable was responsive in restoring service. But, to get access to streaming media of our choice, a smart TV was required. Fortunately we had one, so we were able to access Netflix and other programs without any difficulty. Lastly, we were able to do some excellent trout fishing in the area and the cabin is an ideal location to reach fishing areas and attractions (such as Great Escape). We are grateful to Anastasia and Denis for keeping in contact with us during the week and ensuring that our stay was as enjoyable as possible despite the weather. They worked with Frontier to restore Internet service, which saved the day for our grandkids, who avoided cabin fever with the TV access. In summary, we recommend Angler's Rest to others and would stay in this well-built cabin with a great view again.
David and Mary, Thank you for such informative review and I am thrilled that the generator kicked in as we hoped since we never actually experienced such storm there ourselves but always knew it was a possibility. Hoping for better weather if you come again next summer!
Anastasia and Denis
Well worth every penny! The beauty of the view from the back deck makes you not even want to leave the house!! Beautiful inside as well. The owner was easy to reach and always helpful. Would definitely rent again!
Dear Whitney, We are glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward on seeing you again next year!
Great Place to Unwind
Our group had a great time during our stay at this property. The location is beautiful, with awesome views of Gore Mountain and absolutely stunning views of the night sky. The house is newly built with all the amenities that a family with small children could need. The air hockey and ping pong tables were a huge hit with the kids. The house is very clean and all the of sleeping areas were comfortable. There's a great little town a few minutes away that has everything you need (grocery store, liquor store, pharmacy, etc.). Lake George is only 25 minutes away, which was a big plus for us.
The owner was very easy to deal with and she provided a very high level of service. We're already talking about making the trip again.
Thank you! Hope to have you visit us again!
Beautiful cabin, beautiful view
We rent a cabin each year, and this was the nicest one we've done so far. All wood and logs from the inside and out, this one was also the most cabin-like. And all the necessary amenities were available.
Cons (even the best places have cons):
There is no regular trash pickup, so guests are required to take their trash back with them (there is a fee if left behind). This wasn't a big deal for us.
The cabin is located on a major road. It's not a noisy road, but cars do occasionally go by pretty fast, so best not to let pets or small children run loose.
Thank you for your review Chris, I am glad you enjoyed your stay! Yes, unfortunately there is no municipal garbage pick up in town. We have the option to arrange for private pick up at the end of each stay for an additional cost of $40, we also periodically dispose of recyclables, which tend to be on the heavy side, ourselves. This policy is disclosed here at VRBO and in a contract sent to each renter. Most short term renters prefer to pay the lower rate and take trash with them. Others, especially large families traveling far, often opt out to get it removed and pay a bit more for this convenience. We prefer to offer our guests a choice instead of building this cost into a higher daily rate. Our lot is adjacent to Route 8 which is a major road and the cabin is in close proximity to this state road. We chose this location since it offered secluded spot with a beautiful view which is still accessible by a paved, well maintained road in all seasons. Since you are an ADK regular, we hope to see you again next year!
Log Cabin with Views of Gore Mnt
We had a very relaxing 10 days here in July/Aug 2015. The cabin location is peaceful. There was plenty of space for 4 people. Anastasia had been be prompt answering to questions regarding activities to do in the area (hicking, rafting, swimming, mountain bicking...). There is even documentation and detailed Maps of south and east Adirondacks provided. The cabin is clean, the view is great, the deck is gorgeous. We hope to come back here, maybe in winter.
Francois, Thank you for choosing Angler's Rest for your vacation this summer. We would love to see you again some time next year. Unfortunately we do not rent out in the winter since we ski ourselves but welcome guests during all other seasons. We have rented during the winter in the past and are well familiar with the area so please let me know if you need any recommendations.
Our log cabin is located only 7 or 8 minutes from Gore Mountain Ski Resort, one of the best ski mountains in the east. Whiteface Mountain Ski Resort (home of 1980 winter Olympics) is only 80 minutes away. Hot water baseboard heat on first floor and radiant floor heat on lower level make this a warm and cozy retreat throughout the year. Automatic emergency generator in case of power outage. This cabin is in ideal location for a spring/summer/fall get away for fishing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking and white water rafting. There is ALWAYS something fun to do in the Gore Mountain area. Beautiful Lake George Village and Million Dollar Beach are only 30 min away (weekly fireworks in summer). Great family swim area at Minerva Lake Beach only 18 min away. Our 6 acre property is inside Adirondack State Park and night sky is absolutely amazing without any light and noise pollution. To make your most memorable evenings, we offer our guests the use of our 8 inch telescope from the upstairs deck.
