About Cheryl

The love of nature and desire to be near water with peaceful surroundings has always been a dream of mine. After living in Ma all my life, I moved here to the beautiful Adirondacks in 2009 with my husband Doug.

Cheryl purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Cheryl chose Northville

Doug and I enjoy the challenge of finding undesirable properties in dire need of rehabbing. It must have the right location though. We somehow have seen their potential, where most would have run away..fast!

When we first looked at this overgrown property with a very neglected, poorly laid out, run down cabin, we excitedly began brain storming on how to transform this ugly duckling into the peaceful, charming beauty it is now. The bigger the challenge the greater our motivation. With a lot of ideas, hard work and some hired carpenters, when the tasks were just too much. the dream was complete.The final result..a cozy,rustic, yet updated cabin with an exceptional view of the Sacandaga River.

We did all that while our home, and jobs were in MA. We lived in MA, but our hearts longed for the day we could make Northville (Benson) NY our home. Well...long story short, in 2009 we sold our home in MA and moved into the cabin while our home next door was being built. Ten months later we moved out of the cabin into our new home.

The cabin was just too special to not share with others so we decided to offer it as a vacation rental. Now into it's 4th successful year, our many very pleased, happy guests long to return. The numerous comments left in our guest book along with the rave reviews on the Home Away site speak for themselves.

What makes this cabin unique

We strive to make vacations for each of our guests special, while creating wonderful memories, which will leave our guests longing to return! The many amenities along with it's appealing, comfortable furnishings, peaceful river views with nature surrounding the cabin make this a unique vacation destination.

We welcome you to experience this wonderful exceptionally cozy, romantic cabin as so many guests have already!

Wonderful stay at this cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about this wonderful property! The cabin was spotlessly clean and well equipped. There was nothing missing we could have asked for - there was even shampoo and conditioner in the shower! As many previous reviewers have noted, the bed was incredibly comfortable. Getting out of bed in the morning was the only chore of our day. Doug and Cheryl were very helpful throughout our short stay. Doug suggested a lovely hike for us to take, and was kind enough to let us interrupt his busy day to drive us up the river and supply tubes (and Cheryl dug up a floating cooler!) so we could tube back to the house. The location of this cabin is wonderful with riverfront views and close access to the lake. We were also able to use their kayaks for a quick trip out on the lake. We couldn't have asked for more and we will definitely be back again, hopefully for a longer stay!

This cozy cabin in the woods of Benson is perfect.

  • 5 of 5
Clean and quiet - with landlords who are caring when needed, but otherwise give you the peacefulness most of us want on vacation. Cabin is on a dead end road by a beautiful river. I love it there.
I like to get away to this beautiful area as often as possible. The cabin's layout is attractive and well maintained, without being overly done. Basic kitchen needs, but I am not doing gourmet cooking on vacation. Everything is good condition - from the blinds to the cooking stove. Good water for drinking and showering.
We ate at a couple diners and The Timeless Tavern in Northville was incredible. The best meal out ever - we had Prime rib and I never had a better cut! Shopped at some stores in nearby Gloversville/ Johnstown -Runnings, Peebles, and TJ Max.

Rocking on the porch and reading and listening to the river and birds is my favorite part of being in the Adirondacks. And when we do go into Northville or Speculator, the local people are the friendliest I have ever met.
I have been to this lovely cabin 7 times and hope for many more visit there.

exactly what I was looking for........

  • 5 of 5
This is exactly what I was looking for, a nice quiet getaway where all of the amenities and details have been taken care of. Location is close to all of the nice towns in the area, such as Saratoga Springs and Lake George, not to mention beautiful waterfalls and hiking trails very close by. The owners Doug and Cheryl were very nice and made me feel welcome. The cabin had everything I needed, including books and movies. Very cozy cabin, loved the gas burning stove in the living room for added ambience. I would definitely stay here again.

The southern Adirondacks is the location of this awesome cabin in Benson NY, on a dead end road, with hardly any traffic.

The tranquil river view with nature all around you make this a truly special spot but, not so remote that you can't get to the quaint village of Northville only 4 miles away. You'll think you stepped back in time with it's restaurants, a grocery store, a farmers market (Tues and Fridays), a wonderful Adirondack gift store, a cute little boutique, five and dime, old fashion hardware store. ice cream parlor, coffee shop, gas, bank and drug store.

Sunday night summer concerts are just some of the wonderful things going on at the village park.

This great location offers so many hikes close by,(some with beautiful waterfalls). We will supply directions to these great spots and offer suggestions also.

Lapland Lake Cross County Ski Resort is very popular and is only 6 miles away and offers well groomed trails for skiing and snow shoeing.

We have two sets of snow shoes and snow cleats that you are welcome to use while staying at the cabin.

You can be as active as you want here or relax and rejuvenate at the cabin while getting away from your everyday stresses!

Enjoy the outdoor fire pit, watch birds feeding from the feeders, we have many deer visitors also.

The cabin is just north of the huge 29 mile Great Sacandaga Lake and the state boat launch is only 3 miles away. If you'd like to bring your boat to enjoy the lake we have plenty of parking.

Ski: Lapland Lake cross country ski resort is only 6 miles away.

Gore mountain is one hour away

Oak Mountain in Speculator is one half hour from cabin.

Why not make a reservation for that very deserved time away? I look forward to hearing from you!
