Bainbridge Cabin Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms (1-Queen, 1-Double Bed), 1/2 Bath (Shower only), see 'Amenities'.
Dating from the late 19th/early 20th century, this private cottage is a sanctuary with spectacular views and will take you back to a simpler time. The secluded & rustic seasonal camp is only 2 mi. from rural village of Bainbridge & only 3 hrs. from NYC. Features a large, beautiful screened-in porch (9.5' x 40.3') overlooking the Susquehanna River with an absolutely stunning view. Sitting on riverbank 35+ feet above the river, you have incredible views of the river, valley and surrounding hills. Quaint bedrooms (1-Queen/1-Dbl), camp has sitting room with (2) overhead fans, small kitchen with stove/refrigerator (incl. coffeemaker, microwave, cookware, tableware & utensils) and bathroom with campy screened-in shower only. 14' canoe, new 10' Walker Bay rowing dinghy, gas grill, basic cable TV, radio/cassette/CD/DVD player, 1-electric space heater included. 2-single place kayaks & propane space heater available for rent. Available 17 May thru 21 October, 2013.
What To Bring: Leave your stresses at home and bring: a favorite book, camera, sunscreen (and mosquito repellent when outside at dawn or dusk), and, of course, your personal canoe/kayak and/or fishing gear. The river offers excellent fishing - smallmouth bass, walleye pike, rockies, perch and catfish at night. And, fishing where feeder streams empty into the river and the water is clear over gravel, will often yield a brookie or rainbow trout! Also, bring water shoes/aqua socks for foot protection from sharp objects while wading, swimming, tubing, canoeing or kayaking. Renters are free to use 14' aluminum canoe & new 10' Walker Bay Dinghy (rowboat) - an easy dream to row. (2) single place kayaks available to rent. And, come prepared with appropriate clothing for the season – temperatures can range from mid-30’s in early Spring/late Fall, to 70 and over a 100 degrees in the Summer - overnight temps can drop to mid-40’s in late Spring/early Fall.

About Dick Germond

Dick Germond purchased this cabin in 2003
Why Dick Germond chose Bainbridge
Natural environment, located very near where I grew up, on the water, near many oldest friends, is the 4th oldest river in the world, and great fishing to boot! Am thinking of selling the camp property, as I'm getting older, tired of working and want to get something down south for the winters: .5 Acre, 45' above the river (has never flooded) and only 3 hours from NYC. $65K, may carry note with 1/3 down?
What makes this cabin unique
Relatively close to NYC, scenic area, a great vacation rental property and less than two miles to the golf course!
