FOREST POND COTTAGE. COZY,CLEAN & PRIVATE DWELLING WITH ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME

Lowville Rental Photos and Description

Pets are welcomed.Sleeps 6/8 people.Only dwelling on 115 acres.Beautiful setting

'Forest Pond Cottage' is located in the Adirondack Park in Northern New York .Pets are welcome for a small fee per stay/per pet. Access to snowmobile & ATV trails are right from the cottage. It is situated on the edge of a seven acre beaver pond and surrounded by 115 acres of hardwood forest. The cottage is the only dwelling at the end of a town road which allows for easy year-round access yet ensures privacy. With every season there is a whole new variety of outdoor activities to enjoy. The cottage is an oasis from everyday living with all the comforts of home to re create from within. There are endless trails for hikers, bikers, cross country skiing, ATVs and snowmobiles. Very near by are lakes, streams, rivers, mountains and thousands of acres of State land that is yours to enjoy. Please refer to pictures to view what the cottage has to offer as far as sleeping arrangements go & furnishings provided. All linens for bed, bath & kitchen are provided as well as a fully equipped kitchen. We have had everything there from weddings, honeymoons, anniversarys, family reunions to private get aways. It's a great place for individuals to share time & space with loved ones. There is a canoe to use on the pond, picnic table & outdoor furniture. We just built a nice deck for the pond (see photos). A bon fire site for star gazing at night is always fun. There is an outdoor grill for BBQ. Off the upstairs bedroom is a balcony that makes you feel like you are right there within the trees as you look out into the forest and over the pond. I will try to list some of the amenities: full kitchen with full size refrigerator, full size gas stove, microwave, coffee pot all kitchen ware, nice pots & pans, crockpot, blender, toaster, storage (tupper)ware, cook ware, spices, Table, chairs in kitchen. One bathroom with all linens, shower stall, toilet, sink & very clean. Livingroom, gas heating stove, 3 recliners, an Etahn Allen couch that folds out to a queen size bed, very nice mattress pad in livingroom closet for fold out mattress (again, all linens provided & very nice). TV, VCR DVD, DISH satelite, BOSE music system, variety of DVD movies & VHS tapes, games, cards, round table to seat minimum of 4. Nice lighting. Off the livingroom is an enclosed, screened porch the length of the cottage to enjoy your morning brew and the wild life as you look out onto the pond. There are tables, chairs & a swing chair for your relaxation. Just down the stairs from the porch is the patio. Nice outdoor furnishings provided. Back inside & up the stairs is the second floor where there is a queen bed as well as 2 twin beds in one large room. The linens are very nice and the beds very comfortable. Air conditioning too. Off from the bedroom is the balcony where you become ONE with nature. If there is a 'little one' staying, there is a crib that can be provided as well as a high chair. Life preservers are there also for canoe ventures. We live 2 miles up Number Four Rd...I tell guests we are far enough away to stay out of your hair but close enough to always be available if & when needed.

  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • wheelchair accessible
  • suitable for elderly or infirm
  • children welcome

We live 2 miles up from the cottage on Number Four Rd. We've been at that residence for almost 30 years. Dan is a forester and went to ESF at Syracuse University. He was the procurment forester for Ethan Allen until the company moved much of the production to China ('greener pastures'). Now, Dan has his realtor license and works for timberland realty, which is associated with Cabellatrophy properties also. The focus is on listing wooded parcels and some have camps, houses or other structures. To see his listings you can go to dempie@timberlandrealty.net .Dan,also, does private consulting for forestry & land management.

Carol has been an RN for over 30 years. She, also, had a wellness & fitness center in Lowville for 11 years. Currently she is focusing on the cottage and looking into other business ventures.

Carol or Dan purchased this in 2004

We took care of the property for the 'long distant' owner for years before it became available for sale almost to the day of Carol closing her fitness center. There was a 'land developer' that was interested in the property also. Dr Fritelli was the current owner & had purchased the cottage and pond from Minnie Peck previously, who raised 5 children there. Dr Fritelli loved the property & entrusted much of the care, maintenance and management to Carol & Dan. He had it for his own private use. The developer (whom shall remain nameless) offered Dr Fritelli a fair market price for the cottage & land. Since the Empies had 'first refusal' we were able to match his offer to Dr Fritelli. Of course, the developer came back with a much more substantial offer. We could not match that. Dr Fritelli decided to sell the property to us at the first price and refused the developers. As stated earlier, he loved the property & knew we would take good care of it & share it with others without exploiting it. So, love of the land won against development and 'greener (money) pastures. Way to go Dr Fritelli...if only Ethan Allen & other business used you as an example!

We fixed up the cottage to share with others and, also, so we could afford it. We keep the rent very reasonable because we believe everyone should be able to enjoy the serenity of nature.

It was a lot of work but we enjoy work (crazy, huh!). Dr Fritelli would be proud. In our guest book he has a portion dedicated to his saying 'good bye' to his much loved land.

Our belief is to keep it affordable and always give more than what is expected.

Snowmobilers Dream

What a perfect winter weekend get away. We enjoyed hundreds of miles of beautiful trails and came back to a cottage that was clean and comfortable.Carol and Dan loaned us some snowshoes to try. So much to do , so little time. A delightful weekend. Can't wait to return and make it a longer vacation. A terrific find! Thank you so much for the hospitality. I would highly recommend this cottage for a get away any time of year! I would image it's special during all 4 seasons. And how perfect that you can bring the whole family, including your pets!
Owner's Response: Tracey & Karin, Thank you, so much, for the nice review. So many snowmobilers don't realize how nice the trails are up here in the Adirondacks. The best part is you can go where the 'crowds' are and still have a nice quiet 'home' to come back to. We'll look forward to your next visit!

Went for the value, stayed for the beauty

My wife and I, along with our Jack Russell terrier, spent our Thanksgiving holiday here and were completely captivated by the beauty of the area. This was our first trip to the Adirondacks and we loved everything about this arrangement. Having traveled widely, staying in many cabins and cottages, we were thoroughly impressed by every facet of our experience: the mesmerizing scenery, the cleanliness of the cottage, the awesome scenery, the ease with which we secured the time, the gorgeous scenery, the incomparable value, the pleasantness of dealing with our hosts. Did I mention the scenery?

Literally, our only complaint was that it was over too soon. We seriously could not have asked for a better, more restful Thanksgiving, and we are truly thankful for the opportunity. When we return, we will definitely book this cottage.

I always love staying at forest pond cottage! There's not a thing I'd change about it! It's always clean and supplied with the basics ( towels, lotions, soaps, bedding) it makes the stay great knowing I can just pack my clothes and good and head there! Beautiful and peaceful as well! I'll be back soon!
Owner's Response: Thanks, Kelly & give my best to Mike. Looking forward to seeing you next time.

Our stay at Forest Pond Cottage was even better than described in the listing. The cottage was clean, the queen bed supremely comfortable, and we had everything we needed. We brought our food, clothes, kayaks, bikes and dogs, but there is a canoe on the property. Carol and Dan, who live 2 miles away, are kind, caring people, and we felt as though we were instantly among friends. Dawn over the private pond was a special memory that we'll cherish for a long time. We hiked every day, both on the property and on wilderness trails. We kayaked the pond and nearby larger lakes, and rode trail bikes on nearby snowmobile trails. We will be back and highly recommend this property if you need to get away from your busy life and avoid tourist traps.
Owner's Response: Cheryl & Geoff, Thanks for the nice review! We're looking forward to your next visit.Carol & Dan

There is no place like home....

Our trip to New York and the Lowville area was very stressful. My son was deploying out of Ft. Drum and we needed to find a place to stay while we visited with our three, rather large, dogs. What we didn't need was any glitches!!

Forest Pond cottage was like a home away from home. It was peaceful, comfortable and clean. Dan and Carol were the perfect hosts. We almost got snowed in the fist night we were there and woke up to find the lane cleared and Carol pulling up to snow blow the drive. I misplaced my reading glasses, guess what?, there is a pair in the dresser drawer!! I loved the sheets and blankets. There is not one thing that you would need, besides food and drink, that is not provided.
We even found snowshoes in the entryway one day. Had we not been so busy with my son I believe Carol and Dan would have come down and showed us the proper way to wear them.
If what you are looking for is a peaceful, private, warm, well maintained cottage to stay in while visiting the area. This is the place!! I felt very safe here and was nearly in tears when we left. I couldn't have asked for more.
Thank you again Dan and Carol, for the wonderful visit to New York.
Pam and Ron Wolford
Owner's Response: Thanks Pam & Ron! It was a great pleasure to meet you both. I wish the best for your son overseas & hope you can come visit us again. Hope your pups have a long wonderful life. Best regards, Carol & Dan

If you love the forest, nature and solitude you will love it here. Just driving to Forest Pond Cottage on the Number Four Road will give you the sense you are leaving negativity behind; whatever it may be. If it's water & woods that you like and you don't want to drive, stay on the property and explore the nooks and crannies around Forest Pond. There is always one form of wild life traversing this 115 acre property. You're guaranteed a show at dusk by the resident beaver family, too. Kayakers and canoeists may prefer Francis & Beaver Lakes, the Beaver River, or Stillwater Reservoir, There is no end to the trails and dirt roads available to hikers, bikers and horseback riders. Hike to the Independence River, Panther Pond or Half Moon Lake and we guarantee you'll come back for more.

Other Activities: hiking, canoeing, kayaking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, ATV, snowmobiling
