Property description

Recharge in our 'off the grid' cabin. Live by firelight and rainwater with your own spot of Adirondack waterfront perfection. Grab a breath of fresh air amidst the fast-paced technology-centered routine of everyday life.

The one room cabin easily sleeps four people with a full futon located on the ground floor and a full size air mattress in the loft. Renters bring their sleeping bag and sheets. A covered porch affords a bird’s eye view of the water and feels as if sitting in the treetops. The cabin has no electricity or running water and is equipped with battery and solar powered lanterns, solar outdoor lighting, two 5-gallon jugs of potable water, a propane cooktop for morning coffee and eggs and a gas grill for deck cooking. We provide the propane, pots and pans, dinnerware, and other kitchen utensils. The outhouse is just a few steps away.

Our cabin is located on the Soft Maple Reservoir mid-way on the 14-mile Beaver River Canoe Route and thirteen miles from the village of Croghan. The Croghan tract is one of the more remote areas of the Adirondack Park with a long tradition of hunting, fishing and trapping. The Reservoir is comprised of two connected lakes, with waters ideal for fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and water sports. In the small town of Croghan you can get gas, bait, ice and groceries. Visit the Croghan Meat Market, the Maple Museum, Monnat’s Country Store, the Croghan Candy Kitchen, or stop at Good Ol’ Wishy’s soda fountain for a root beer float. Leave your expectations home. Bring only what you need and marvel in the beauty that surrounds you.

Rental available summer months only as there is no interior heat source.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My roots go deep in the area. My father's people farmed the Beaver River area beginning in the late 1800s. My mother's father worked as a fishing and hunting guide and her mother as a cook for the Stillwater Hotel. I work with local schools providing technical support for education software. Both my son and daughter live and work in Buffalo now.

Why the Owner Chose Croghan, NY, USA:
We looked for several years before purchasing this property. I wanted a place where my kids could always come home to that is part of who they are. We hoped for water front but with some elbow room. Soft Maple is perfect and I couldn't be happier with the "lack" of electricity and TV and wifi and phones... There is no where else that I feel so calm and so grateful.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This is our second year renting. The hope is to help off set some of the cost of owning and continue making upgrades on the camp and property. There is no intent to get rich rather it feels wonderful to share the experience that has brought us such joy.
