Property type lodge

About the property

Relax and renew in a classic, comfortable, updated lodge and boathouse directly on the MAIN BAY of Upper Higley Flow. Stake out your spot on our large, sunny private deck, tie up your boat downstairs, fire up the gas grill or go fishing from the dock! Watch some HBO/Satellite TV, listen to the Music Channels or read in the quiet waterside garden - also a good spot for the kids, complete with their own picnic table and firepit for toasting marshmallows! Enjoy 180 degree water views and sleep under fresh quilts and coverlets in Adirondack decor. Cook in the updated, eat-in & fully equipped kitchen. Dive into deep water off the dock or walk in and out of shallow water using our convenient steps. Fully furnished and equipped far beyond the "typical rental", Sunset Lodge is a "summer home" for many of our guests, who return year after year. Or, consider a getaway during late summer or fall, a quieter, beautiful time to be on the river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family had a very peaceful and restful week at Sunset Lodge in late September. We saw some brilliant northern New York sunsets from the living room, a bald eagle soaring above the river, and enjoyed some gorgeous fall days on the deck. We stayed warm, cozy and comfortable using heaters and blankets provided. The owners thought of everything to make our stay wonderful. We were constantly amazed how well-equipped the lodge was. Sunset Lodge is a special place that allowed our family to enjoy each other while appreciating the nature around us. We will be back!

Made great memories!

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family was able to relax and enjoy a weeks vacation on a beautiful lake. The sleeping arrangements worked well with a baby, young boys and adults. There is space to spread-out and to be together. I highly recommend Sunset Lodge!

Sunset Lodge

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in August. The serene setting of the boathouse, the sound of the water and the smell of the trees, made us feel we were transplanted into a storybook. We spent many afternoons on the deck relaxing and reading books, eating dinner and soaking in the view. The sunsets were amazing!!! My kids enjoyed the rowboat and fishing off the dock. A dip in the river was always refreshing. I also found different spots to meditate each morning. House is fully equipped, each room had beautiful quilts, vintage photos and pictures. The quality, amenities and location were a terrific value. The owners have thought of all the details to help make it a home for their guests. Highly recommend!

Relaxing Getaway on Higley Flow

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Lodge is a relaxing, comfortable camp on Higley Flow. My wife and I spent the week there with three kids - two teens and one preteen, as well as having my mother visit for a few days. There was plenty of space for everyone - from the 3 bedroom sleeping area to the waterside boathouse bedroom or the study off of the family room. The camp is furnished and decorated with items collected by the owner's family over the years, giving it that charming, comfortable feel of a Northern NY seasonal camp. The large deck overlooking the water has lots of comfortable chairs to relax in, watch the boats on the water, catch some rays, or enjoy dinner with your guests. There is a nice dock to swim from, tie your boat to, or do some fishing from. You can also walk in from the shore on the nice sandy-bottomed waterfront. There is lots of water to explore in the area, both above and below the dam if you bring your kayak or canoe. You can also take the camp's row boat out for spin. The camp is fully equipped with everything you need for the week, and the Potsdam and Canton areas are close by if you want to go explore the local shops or need to stock up on groceries or beverages. The hosts are available just a couple of miles up river if you have any questions or need any assistance, and are wonderful people to know. We can't wait to return to Sunset Lodge for another week of fun this summer.
