Sackets Harbor Cabin Rental Photos and Description

It is within an hour of the Thousand Islands, and two hours from the Adirondack Mountains.

The interior has been updated and is tastefully decorated. The small porch upstairs is a great place to have coffee and enjoy the surrounding woodsy beauty.

There is a state park with a lovely beach nearby.

I currently live in Philadelphia but make the trip up to Sackets Harbor as much as I can, especially to escape to the cool summer air.

My grandparents built this cabin about thirty years ago with the help of some wonderful family and friends. We try our best to help carry on the tradition of creating a peaceful, warm environment for all our guests, both family and guests alike.

Owner and Property Charming!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I have rented Lillie's property for many years now. She is wonderful and accomodating and is always eager to please. The cabin is filled with charm and has everything needed to complete anyone's vacation. As soon as we leave the cabin, we are already talking about going back. We hope to go back this Augst if it is available. :-)

Great Owner and location

  • 5 of 5
I inquired about this property out of season and without very much notice. The owner (Lillie) responded quickly and was very accommodating. I have stayed at several other vacation rentals before and the owner is usually stand-offish and sometimes not reachable, but not in this case. The cottage is surrounded by trees and located right on the water, and waking up in the morning standing on the balcony watching the sunrise is priceless. The pictures do not do this cottage justice. I was expecting something much smaller with a small yard, but I was happy to see the size was much larger than expected. Almost everything you need is also included, which saved several trips. Thank you again for going through the trouble to accommodate my family.

Great Get Away & Close for Shoppers

Great Get Away & Close for Shoppers
  • 5 of 5
The two story cottage is exceptionally clean, tidy, and well equipped. This property has been in the famiy for a couple generations and thus we found the decore and furnishings delightfully eclectic with a patina of age that provided a cosy touch. Surrounded by magnificent oaks and birch the cottage is very private but not remote as there are neighbors nearby.

The river was low because of the drought so immediatly in front of the prioperty it was more wetlands than waterfront but a delightful and barely used public beach was only a couple minutes walk away. Fantastic sunsets to boot.

We live only two hours away in Ottawa, Canada and as the mall in Watertown is only ten minutes from the cottage it offered much more in the way of a holiday than just a run of the mill shopping trip for Canadians. Also good reception for CBC Kingston and other French and English radio stations.

The area is also exceptionally rich in history and scenery starting with Sachets Harbor, where a crucial battle and other goings on regarding the War of 1812 took place.

Way above expectations!!!

Sackets Harbor Cabin

  • 1 of 5
This cabin is in an ideal location for visiting Sackets Harbor and the Thousand Islands region. However, it has many maintenance issues. The dock is overgrown with reeds and has broken and loose boards. Visitors cannot fish or launch a boat from the dock due to this summer's drought and low water levels. The second floor balconies are in need of repairs, and the overhead lighting issues mentioned in another review persist. In addition, there was a wasp infestation in the kitchen and living room areas. I would recommend this cabin only after the repairs and needed maintenance are completed.

Nice Cabin but it needs some maintenance upgrades

  • 3 of 5
The cabin was clean and well stocked,with sheets, towels, dishes and such. However there was an apparent short in the light fixture in the kitchen, which sparked and smoked when tuned on. We then elected not to use the fixture.The ceramic kitchen floor tiles were coming loose, and several smaller ones were already missing. Also on our day of departure, after washing the towels (in conjunction with the rental agreement), the water completely ran out and stayed out for over 2 hours. That prevented us from washing the sheets or doing our breakfast dishes befor leaving.

I think some electical, and plumbing upgrades, as well as replacing some rotting wood outside the cabin, would go a long way to make this cabin a much better rental for the tenants.

Owner's Response: I would like to respond that as soon as the call came in about the light fixture I immediately called the repair person. We had no prior knowlege of the problem and tried to resolve it immediately. The water issue is that it is a remote area and water is brought in on a truck. An alarm goes off when the water is running low and at that point there are instructions on moving water from the top tank to the bottom one. These instructions are posted and if the tenant had simply called we could have given simple instructions on transferring the water. We have tried to make this a comfortable get a way, but it is in the woods and so there are some special considerations. We will repair the tiles and wood as soon as possible.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
I am originally from Sackets Harbor...Used to live on Dodge Ave when I was a little girl...Brought my family to visit my hometown back in July 08...We came across this cabin on the internet and deciced to rent it...What a great choice! We had a small issue when we arrived...the cabin had not been cleaned yet from the previous renters...it was really no big deal, was just a misunderstanding of arrival dates. Lillie was so sweet about it and allowed us to stay an extra night at no charge...The cabin is so homey and just over all relaxing. I am looking foward to bring my family there again next summer.
