If you look on TripAdvisor you’d expect to come up on a private cabin in the woods with a backyard leading to a private lake. Not the case. There five cabins in very close proximity. There’s a long walk down to the lake which is not within sight when at the cabin. The boats are not as appealing as the photos. Granted I know they’re outside but one of the photos shows a pristine paddle boat. In reality the canopy was folded back with 100 dead insects and spiders and a broken direction lever. We brought sand toys for our kids since they show sand in the photos. There was almost no sand. Only the two feet from the lake where the boats were sitting. The propane fireplace did not ignite. I don’t know if it was something turned off for summer but there was a morning we woke up and it was 50 in the living room. I turned on the baseboard heat but it took a whole til that changed anything. The first step into the place has a rotted entrance. The floor is soft. And the door frame is uneven so the bottom inch of the frame is open. Hello bugs. I had to clean both air conditioner filters as it looked like they hadn’t been done. Ever.
With all that said, the place is as pictured as far as the interior goes. Nicely done cabin. Nice tub and shower setup. But it was extremely misleading with the pictures. We left a full day early.
The cottage was beautiful, very well kept and clean. We loved the ability to walk down to the lake and kayak right on the property. Also a great location of you like some day trips. 1000 islands only an hour north, the Adirondacks 1.5 hours east. Salmon River falls only a few minutes down the road was beautiful! We had such a great time our family has already booked two cottages for next summer!
We had such a great Memorial Day weekend. The cottage is situated a few steps from the lake, where we had access to kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, etc. The cabin was clean and fully stocked with everything we needed! I'm so glad we didn't have to bring things like utensils,m paper towels, or even citrus candles (which we forgot at home). We cooked and had all meals at the cabin. Great appliances. The owner was very polite and helpful. He provided us with detailed instruction on how to find the cabin. Will highly recommend this wonderful cabin. Thank you, Brian!
We initially booked 3/nights and by the 3rd day we wanted to book another day. The cabin was fully stocked with everything you needed to be comfortable. The lake was great, my partner caught 20+ bass fish. The surrounding area was great the town's people were helpful and pleasant as well. We took a trip to Salmon River Falls, a must see when you visit.
The only thing that I would suggest is to upgrade the mattresses, otherwise the cottage was perfect. The jetted tub was deep and wide made perfect for a late night soak.
This is definitely a place I would visit and stay again. I'll book a longer stay next time.
Place was not cleaned. Called owner to clean up the place. Fishing on lake good. One star speaks for itself.
