"I enjoyed a one-week stay at Bruce and Susan's picturesque property. They have their own "Walton's Mountain" in a way. Hulett's Landing is off the main track and offers a quiet, friendly, upper-scale ambiance. Residents seem connected through history and traditions--yet are valuers and respecters of privacy. The property is atop a mountain road that passes by a few homes and ambles through tree-laden area before reaching the Young's private driveway. An unpaved road winds up to their oasis overlook.
The cabin home has solid craftsmanship and charm. The layout is a large open-room style. Mounted hunting trophies offer a truly striking decor. It's not just decoration--it's testimony to Bruce's exotic life of world-wide hunting, a museum in kind. The trophies are tastefully displayed and well-lighted at rafter height (not looking you in the eye). Cool and special. Comfortable bed, wonderful quiet, and a mountain vista view. I found the kitchen island convenient to work with and the back patio a pleasant setting. Small details say a lot, and finding comfortable towels, scented cachet packets in the wardrobe drawers, and dual coffee makers (regular or Kuerig) was appreciated. I'd advise future guests of two things: 1. The cabin sets close to the Young's home. 2. The cabin is an open-room style that has designated sections, but not walled off separations. The advertised pictures are very accurate, and calling it a "cabin" somewhat does an injustice. It's a distinctive cabin-like lodge that feels "new" and is well-maintained. Ticonderoga and Schroon Lake made for nice side trips, and the Vermont border is a 20-minute drive.
Bruce and Susan are accommodating hosts (with fascinating backgrounds) who appreciate meeting you. They grant professionalism and privacy. I sincerely appreciated their warm and genuine hospitality.
