Edwards Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3+ bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 11

This A-frame cottage was completely rebuilt in '04. Its multi-level decks and panoramic windows have spectacular views of Trout Lake and the evening sunsets. The deck is nestled into the rock and is surrounded by pines, giving a sense of being a part of nature. On the deck's first level is a new, large barbecue grill, table and seating; on the second level is a cedar, wood-fired hot tub and more seating; and the third level provides additional seating as well as serves as an entrance to the ground level sleeping porch and stairs to the dock. A deck off the living room and a balcony off the master bedroom offer more views and seating. In living room is a floor to cathedral ceiling stone fireplace and TV w/ over 150 satellite channels. There is a swimming area on the shore, as well as off the dock. A new (2013) 17' pontoon boat w/ 8 hp motor (12' x 7' deck with 4 chairs and 1 bench, collapsible cover), and 2 kayaks are provided.

Indoors, the floor to cathedral ceiling fireplace, as well as the spacious picture windows and French doors make the living room a haven of views and comfort. One of the leather sofas opens into a full size bed. Off the living room is the dining room and kitchen. The kitchen has all new cabinets, appliances, Corian countertop, and is fully equipped. Also on the main floor is a bedroom w/ a queen bed across the hall from the full bathroom, which has all new fixtures as well as a stackable washer and dryer. On the second floor is the master bedroom, with queen bed, single bed and private balcony. On the ground level, near the water's edge, is a sleeping porch, with wrap-around screens, and has 2 double beds. In addition to the fireplace, the cottage has built in propane heaters.

Absolutely LOVED and will return!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Sunset over the week of memorial day and have already rebooked for next year. We loved it! The view of the lake was amazing. We did not want to leave and were so sad when the following Saturday came upon us. The fishing was amazing. My husband and son were in their glory. We took evening trips out on the pontoon boat to see the sunsets. Can't wait to go back in 2014.

Sunset Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our recent stay at Sunset Cottage on Trout Lake was simply outstanding. 
The Cottage is very well maintained and decorated beautifully. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the needed pots, pans, appliances and utensils needed. The gas grill was clean and ready to grill, which we did every single night. The multi level decks all had perfect views of this stunning lake and had plenty of seating for all. 

Sunset Cottage is well named as the view of the setting sun across the lake each night where stunning. We loved the boats as well and enjoyed exploring all areas of the lake each day. There are a lot of hiking trails close by, I recommend the one closest to the cottage that afford a view of nearby Cedar Lake, it is not to be missed. 

The owners have set up everything needed for a perfect, relaxing vacation. 

Thank You, 
The Robb Family

PS. The cottage does have a television and Directv set up. I have no idea if it works as we never felt the need to turn it on. I have a feeling that most people that stay there will do the same.

Wedding Week at Sunset Cottage

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I decided to have our wedding at Trout Lake because her family had a cottage there and had spent time up there when they were younger. We searched for the right venue and found the perfect spot, the Sunset Cottage. We held the ceremony on the second level of the deck overlooking the lake. It was absolutely beautiful!!! The fall colors and the sun shining off the lake made the perfect setting for our wedding. The cottage fit our 15 dinner guests and made for a great evening.

We then spent the remainder of the week at the cottage. We were able to get out on the Boston Whaler and take tours of the lake and see the other homes. We spent time on each deck and enjoyed a hike in the woods down to the lake overlook. We were able to use the wood fired hottub in the evenings. It was a perfect place to relax and look up at the stars.

The Sunset Cottage was a great place for our wedding and I would recommend anyone who wants to relax and enjoy a great vacation to head up to the Sunset Cottage. This place is perfect for families or several couples looking to getaway! We will definitely be back!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
When we drove down the drive to unload the car, everyones faces lit up at the first glimpse of the lake, deck and house. Our kids, 11 year old daughter and 14 year old son went straight to the water and the kayaks while we unloaded the car. They came back an hour later and said this is the best place they’ve ever been too. To put it in perspective they have been to London; San Francisco; San Diego; Outer Banks; Florida – they’re comment was pretty staggering after only being at the house for an hour. We all repeated this comment several more times during the week.

We let the kids have the sleeping porch, which added to their enjoyment of the place.

Yes, there were a few cobwebs up high in some nooks, but for heaven’s sake – you are in the woods, what would you expect. The house was very clean, and ready to move in.

Our cell phones worked fine, I have AT&T and my husband has Verizon. It’s clear on the lease agreement the sheets and towels are not provided and that the phone is local service only.

The beds are extremely comfortable. The house is decorated wonderfully. The water in the lake is crystal clear. It was wonderful to swim and play in the water – nice sandy bottom. Our yellow lab was in the water more than the kids!

We had a fire in the fire pit every night. The wood fired hot tub was fun to play around with. Once you get the fire started, no need to keep the wood box filled to top, the water got a little warm the first time we started it up.

The boat was fun to cruise around the lake, but the kayaks are even more fun. I don’t know if I should be glad of this or not – the kids want kayaks at home now! We would kayak/boat up to Turtle Rock – you can see it up the lake about 500 yards. Our daughter loved climbing up the rock and jumping off.

Everyone was very friendly. Donna and John came over, by boat, our first night to check in on us.

Our friends have seen our photos on Facebook and said their blood pressure dropped just look at the photos. It was the most relaxing vacation we’ve ever had.

We were pleasantly surprised that there were no mosquitos!!

There’s not much to do in the area, which is exactly the way we wanted it. One rainy day we drove into Canton the St. Lawrence University bookstore. Very cute place. You can get a fishing license from Wood’s Family Grocery in Edwards.

I can’t say enough good things about this rental property.

Rustic Stay

  • 2 of 5
I was rather disappointed, first It does say on the website that it does not give linen or towels, but sadly it was a part that I did not see. When we arrived the phone did not work and our cell phone had no signal. It really is a nice place, but we thought it could have been cleaner for that price a night. The lower bedroom had dust on top of the blankets, and the bars of soap were not wrapped and looked like they had been used. The small bottles of shampoo looked like they had been used also, they were half empty. The ice maker was not hooked up and we did not know this, my husband turned it on and it made noise all night. The freezer had old bags of ice in it . The ceiling windows and fans had cobwebs. Only local service for the phone once it was repaired, and we had to go get a phone card. The kids enjoyed the kayaks the second night, that was a plus. We gave this a poor rating basically because the phone didnt work and they weren't real clear on the towels and linens. He did offer to bring them the second night but we got back to the cabin so late and we had already slept on the bed without the sheets, I felt it was stupid to get them. My husband used the sink too before we left and the faucet was not even attached to the sink in the kitchen. They did give an apology and suggested that it would have been better if we had booked a room at there B&B. Well if the phone had worked the first night, I might have called and tried to change it. The B&B was beautiful and well taken care of, we had stopped there to get directions to the cottage because I could not pull up the email on my phone, no signal. They assured us that our staying there provided them with a learning experience, and that they will take care of what was wrong with the place. I would never have booked it had I seen that it did not come with towels or linens. I booked it strictly cause its a pain to rent two separate hotel rooms, and I thought it would have provided a better experience for my kids.

Owner's Response: We are saddened to have disappointed this guest, and as an expression of our regret, we refunded $100 (on a $550 stay), and the guest said that would satisfy her, but she neglected to mention this in her review. The complaints about no sheets or towels and local-only phone service are unfounded since both policies are clearly stated on our website (www.whitepillars.com) and in the guidelines sent to our guests when a reservation is made. The icemaker was intentionally turned off because the water source is the lake. We pride ourselves in providing the highest standards of cleaning and maintenance, as all our other guests have testified to, so for the ceiling cobwebs and the loose faucet we made a generous refund to the guest, with our apologies. In the 22 years that we have been renting our 5 waterfront homes, we have received fewer than a dozen complaints and 100's of delighted comments, so it always saddens us when we have not lived up to our reputation.
Sincerely, Donna and John Clark

Trout Lake is surrounded by 1600 acres of State forest, where there are state-marked hiking trails. Nearby Cedar Lake and Wolf Lake offer additional trails and fishing opportunities. Trout Lake is annually stocked by NYS Department of Conservation with rainbow and lake trout, large and small mouth bass; perch and rock bass are native and in ample supply for the kids. Directly to the east is the high peaks region of the Adirondack (Lake Placid, the home of 2 Olympics, provides a great day trip-about 90 min); to the south along the St Lawrence River is the famous Thousand Islands Region, where one can enjoy boat cruises, castle sight seeing, boat museums (60 minutes away); to the north and across the Ogdensburg International Bridge awaits Canada's capital city, Ottawa, a city known for its continental flavor, fine dining, museums, tours of the Parliament building, and gardens--a unique excursion (90 min away).
