Honest and hard working are words we have heard to describe us. We have shared many adventures in the 39 years we have been married. Although we are both technically 'retired', we are always working on a project. In the fall of 2011, we purchased a run down cottage on Duck Harbor Pond. Over the winter we tore it down and in the spring of 2012 we started building this new log cabin. The design and most of the labor was done by us. We hope you will appreciate our pride in workmanship and love every minute you spend in our cabin.

Elaine Wells purchased this cabin in 2011

We are blessed to be permanent residents in our own log cabin at Duck Harbor Pond. Sharing our piece of 'Paradise' with others in this new this cabin has been a great pleasure.

ECO-Friendly and respect for nature and our environment. The logs and all wood are locally grown and processed. From the lights and windows to the appliances and granite, our choices reflect energy efficiency and organic materials.

My husband and I came from the city to get away from the hustle and bustle, and boy, did this cabin do the trick! The log cabin was just the type of charm we were looking for. The interior is beautiful and the property amazing. We were snowed in for the majority of our visit, but enjoyed playing in the snow and walking around. The only downside of this rental is that the master bedroom mattress seemed old - it was kind of lumpy and dented in the middle - not the best few nights of sleep. (We did not try the other beds as it was just the two of us.) A new mattress would elevate this rental to truly luxurious (in the rustic-charm kind of way). Another suggestion would be to add winter activity equipment, such as snow shoes and a couple of sleds (saucers would do). There was a lot of summer equipment and it made us wish there were some things we could use during our winter stay. Overall, this is a great place to stay in the winter to experience nature, relax, or be adventurous.
Owner's Response: If you are going to be snowed it... this is the place! Our master bedroom does have a lower mattress to accommodate guests with handicaps. The four-poster queen bed upstairs has a thick, pillow top mattress and I wish these quests would have tried that one. Winter equipment is a great idea and we will try to get some.

I had a great time at the Log cabin on waterfront of Duck harbor. The photos were very accurate , it was beautiful and clean. when me and my friends arrived the fire place was on and it was nice and toasty.Hight lights were: The beds were so comfy , we slept the whole time there! The Dish washer! ( loved it because we cooked so much food and it was so easy to clean up after) Location was easy to get to and safe! All time favorite part : The fire me and my friend built outside in the fire pit and also looking at the stars at night. I'd recommend this cabin to any and every one looking to have a peaceful and beautiful vacation. I felt like it was a second home and I'd love to return!

Absolute jewel of a spot. Property owner was an interior design instructor and you know it from the moment you walk in - it's fantastically done, beautiful but cozy. Phenomenal modern all wood cabin - exposed beams, all wooden furniture, well appointed kitchen - in an incredible location. Back porch is 50 feet from a scenic and tranquil lake with a view across to dairy and horse farms as well as forest. Fire pit would have been fun to use. Lake would be excellent for boating, fishing, canoeing, etc. Very comfortable master bedroom, good sized living room with gas fireplace, airy and bright kitchen area with bar stools and large table, spacious upstairs with two additional bedrooms (one with queen bed, one with two twins). And the surrounding area is quite neat, nestled in a quaint community with an antique store and a short drive to Callicoon, with charming restaurant, cafe, and boutique. We couldn't believe our good fortune with this rental turned out to be and can't wait to go back. It's a ways out there but well worth it.

Owner's Response: My husband and I spent a year designing, building, furnishing and decorating what we hoped would be the perfect vacation home. It is wonderful to see that our pride in workmanship and attention to detail are appreciated. I must note that we strive for an allergy free home, so can not be "pet-friendly".

beautiful, clean, and relaxing cabin on the lake

the cabin was beautiful and the lake and surrounding areas are just as nice. our 18 month old loved exploring the cabin and sat quietly in his stroller on the dock watching us catch fish. dad caught a good mix of smallmouth bass and pickerel right off the dock using inline spinners, senkos and small tubes on a jig head. all from the dock. mom enjoyed catching small sunnies with worms and catfish later in the day with hotdogs. we cant wait to come back when our son is a little older and take him out on a canoe or kayak. make sure to print your directions, and save a copy of the map, because your gps and phone will probably not work. the cabin has full wireless interent service once you get there.
