This summer will be our for 4th year in a row renting this cabin for summer vacation. I grew up in Massena (a town close to where cabin is located) and this is now our hub. We visit my family every summer, some still live in the area and others arrange to be there at the same as us. We tend to hang out at the cabin - we have what is essentially our own private beach. The water is beautiful and doesn't get deep too quickly. We swim, kayak, play cards and board games and generally relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings (and occasionally the deer walking through the yard). I found the listing online and took a chance that first year and am so glad I did! The cabin is roomier than I expected, which is nice when we have cooking, game playing and ukulele playing going on at the same time. The deck is beautiful and the whole place is wonderful.
The caretakers are local and responded quickly when contacted (no issue with cabin - the paddle boat had drifted off). The deposit is always returned very shortly after the rental is completed.
As a kid, my folks rented a cabin on the water every year for two weeks - it was the best vacation. I have fond memories of the time spent there and I am hoping to create those same types of memories for the various kids in the extended family. Right after our first year renting, my brothers and cousins were asking when we would be renting it for the following year! It is conveniently located and not too far for my parents and brothers who live nearby.
This was a great little house to spend a long weekend. It was directly on the lake and had a great outdoor space. It was fully equipped and the owners went out of their way to make sure we were all set for our stay. If you are up in the North Country I highly recommend staying here. Thank you again for a great place to stay!
This was the perfect spot for us to visit our kids at St. Lawrence University. I wish we could have spent more time here. It was beautiful being on the water and we ate breakfasts on the deck overlooking the water. We wanted for nothing and felt at home with the friendly notebook of things to do and greeting on the chalkboard from the caretakers. Thanks so much for another great stay.
