We needed the peace and quiet that THE BIG DIPPER has to offer. We also looked up into the night sky and saw the source of its name.

Comfortable cabin, great location.

  • 4 of 5

We rented the Big Dipper for a fishing trip in mid-September 2017. The cabin is well appointed; the kitchen is well stocked with plenty of cooking utensils, dishes and silverware. All the appliances are in good condition. Beds were decent, and extra blankets and towels were supplied. The living room is nice with good sofas, seating and lighting. There are plenty of paperbacks and DVDs if you want something to do inside in the evenings.

The dock is well-built, about 150 feet from the cabin and it was easy to maneuver our boat in and out of it. The inlet the house is in has good fishing access to Chippewa Bay, Oak Island and Schermerhorn Landing. We used the public boat launch in Chippewa Bay; about a 10 minute drive from the cabin and a 10-minute boat ride to the dock in front of the house.

We had a good experience! Would recommend the Big Dipper.

Great get away!

  • 4 of 5

Great waterfront cottage! Love that we were able to use our own boat to go to the Singer Castle for a awesome tour. Beautiful area for a boat ride and kayaking . Private secluded area but only a short drive to Alexander Bay (restaurants, boat tours). Definitely recommend touring both the Boldt and Singer castles . We utilized Uncle Sam's Boat Tours in Alexandria Bay for the Boldt Castle . Owners easy to deal with and very accommodating! Dale,Sherry & Zeva (Our dog)

Great fishing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great place. Nice private location. The dock was great for fishing. Caught a really nice pike, and many pan fish right off the dock.

If you are looking for a private cozy getaway this is it.

Owner was great to deal with. Not overbearing, but thorough.
