Very clean and cozy house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time this weekend. The house was perfect for the two of us with our two dogs. Plenty of room for the dogs to roam with golf course nearby for then to run around in the winter time. Close to many attractions and restaurants. We never had to go more than a few miles to do something.

I stayed here for three weeks and had a wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and very well maintained property. I've been renting in this area for the past seven years and this is by far the nicest and cleanest rental that I have ever stayed in. The fire pit is a definite plus and there are many places nearby where you can purchase wood. The kitchen provides most everything you need to cook your own meals. If you don't want to cook there are several restaurants around the lake; my favorites being Sport Island Pub, Lanzi's on the Lake and Lakeside. From this location you can take advantage of all the Adirondacks have to offer. The owners are easily accessible if you have any questions. While I was here during the summer I feel that this property is perfect for any season. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.

Upper NY Cabin Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Spent a 3 night Anniversary getaway in this cabin in October 2015 . I traveled with my husband and our 3 year old lab. House is pet friendly my #1 reason for booking this house! Owners are great and respond fast to you emails. Beautiful updated newer house! I love owners taste in decorating everything!! This cabin is not located directly on lake but there is a short walk down the road to a small beach like area. Was very rocky in my opinion don't know how comfortable it would be laying out in the summer there. Within 1 to 2 miles of the home is the small town of Northville. Not much to do here in my opinion , but if you want an escape from everything might be perfect for you. We ate at the small diner for breakfast one day which was good. Filled with all the locals. Fair price's. Also a small grocery store is in town which came in very handy cause we choose to eat most meals in. We did a lot of hiking on NPT. Not sure why there is a sign in book in the center of town approximately 3 to 4 miles away from the start of the trail. So be warned not to get confused by that as we did. Not much else to do in this area. We did drive back to Amsterdam a much more built up town with lot of chain restaurants and stores. We brought our own towels, sheets, and kitchen items which I preferred rather then having to wash what they have there for you. Four bedrooms, beds are on the smaller size with all being doubles except for a queen up in the loft. Mattresses are firm. One bedroom in located below ground in basement. Small fire pit outside but weather didn't cooperate for us to get a chance to use it. This is not a dinky run down cabin you find at many lakes, so you will be pleasantly surprised with how nice the house is.
