Lowville Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 3 Bedrooms , 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
This two story camp was built in 1942 with a western exposure. The camp is surrounded by whispering tall red pines overlooking spring fed Lake Brantingham. There are three bedrooms (two with double beds and one with bunk beds), washer, dryer and a two piece bathroom upstairs. On the main level there is a full bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and an open concept dining room/living room with a fireplace. On the lakeside there is a fully screened in porch overlooking picturesque Lake Brantingham. Steps lead down to the boathouse where there is a sundrenched deck with a panoramic view of the lake. On the deck there are built in benches and patio furniture. Here you can enjoy the sun from 10am until it sets. Dinners on the deck overlooking the lake are spectacular and memorable. Two steps from the side deck lead to clear, clean and sparkling water where you can swim and fish. During the late evening star gazing is a must from the upper deck. The camp is located at the end of Cottage Road where is is quiet with less traffic and neighbors are friendly. A canoe, rowboat and life jackets are included.

Why Linda & Don Higgins chose Lowville
When we purchased this property it had a rickety platform, called a dock. Over a couple of years and many, many hours of going through the right channels we had a boat house built. One major problem (challenge) we faced was that we were only allowed a 5 foot dock to put chairs and get some sun. After much thinking, we decided to put the deck on the roof. We were the first boat house on the lake with a sun drenched sun deck and even today when we eat supper on the 'deck' the boats trolling by give us a thumbs up or a 'toot' with the boat horn.
Before owning this property, we had traveled to Brantingham for many years before our family came along. We had helped our friends restore and work on Dark Island, the large island in the middle of Brantingham . They called it 'camp', we called it luxury! Our children spent many a wonderful summer at the Lake and still to this day stay in touch with many of their friends, who are now all married with children of their own. When you arrive at the Lake something tells you, this is 'home'.
