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

Doug and I have always had this crazy notion to find the most undesirable properties in dire need of rehabbing. 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.

We strive to make vacations for each of our guests special, while creating wonderful memories, which will leave our guests longing to return again! 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!

Sacandaga River Cabin

Well, where to start,
My girlfriend and I were looking for a place to stay around these parts and happened upon this Cabin on your site. Had some questions/concerns but were just going to wing it and see how it worked out. I have never made a better decision to purchase something in my entire life. Period. This Cabin is amazing, you're cozily set up next to the Sacandaga River and you have EVERY amenity of home provided for you, down to the measuring cups. The house is great and well put together, nice appliances in the kitchen, great living room with birdhouses directly outside your window for close up bird watching, and they supply cable and movies on an LCD T.V. It's like your grandma's house with proper electronics. The bedroom supplies a bed that I would rate as one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept on. It was a hassle to get out of bed to go hiking around the area. "Ohhh do we have to go do something fun? I really don't want to get up." was a familiar saying this weekend. First world problems.

Doug and Cheryl are about the nicest and accommodating hosts that you will ever find. From our arrival to our departure they were always a phone call or a walk to the mainhouse away from answering our questions to what to do in the area, Doug pointed us to a restaurant on the lake that was absolutely fantastic, also hiking trails around the area and anything else that we needed. I really am serious about the accommodating, I wish that they had rental properties all over the country because I would never stay with anyone else. Period.

The price is a steal, the place is awesome, people are great. What more would you want? You can be like us and make a great homemade meal and then sit around and drink beer while having a fire in "your" yard and watching the river flow by. Talk about relaxation, it was the first time in a while that coming back to reality was a pain because I had lost all knowledge of stress as soon as I stepped foot in that place.
Owner's Response: WOW!! We can not thank you enough for that wonderful review. Doug and I say all the time how we miss living in the cabin. We stayed there for almost a year while our home was being built. There is something magical about it and I'm glad to know that our guests feel it also. We are truly blessed to be able to live in this beautiful area. It does bring us joy to share it with others and makes it worth while when we get rave reviews like yours. Thanks, and we hope you'll be back again.
Doug and Cheryl Gregor

This is our fourth year renting from Doug & Cheryl and I think my husband most looks forward to his discussions with Doug. The place is beautifully furnished by Cheryl who has the magic touch when it comes to comfy cosy. Lots of snow for skiing, lots of deer to watch. I can't think of a better more relaxing place to stay.

What a wonderful weekend - the place was as cozy as could be. Furniture was comfortable, kitchen adequate, bed and bath were great! We took the drive around the north end of the lake - it was just lovely. Winter landscapes can be so dramatic.

We'd love to come back in the summer to see how the other half lives!

Best Winter Getaway!

This wonderful Cabin is so cozy and perfect! My partner and I stayed for the weekend to just get away and relax. We could not have asked for a better place to stay than this fabulous cabin.

We went snowshoeing behind the property on many trails which was a total bonus to not have to drive anywhere but just put our snowshoes on and trek.

Cheryl and Doug, the owners, are the best hosts and really make you feel like this is a "home away from home." We will definitely be returning!!
Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice review and so glad you mentioned the nice hiking/snow shoeing trails. They do make one more great reason, among many, to vacation here at our very warm and cozy cabin. We'd love to have you back. Any time of year is a good time with all kinds of outdoor activities close by. We hope to see you again!

Doug and Cheryl

Owner's Response: You are welcome back anytime! We are so glad that you got that very needed time and rest. Please do come back and I'll be sure to get you to that "secret spot". Sorry the path was covered up by the leaves but grateful you found your way back! All our warmest wishes go out to you and we look forward to your return someday. Doug and Cheryl

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!
