Overview

Caroga Lake Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Bedroom 3, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

The Adirondack Mountains offer one of the most beautiful places in the U.S. year round. Auskerada is located in the Adirondacks, and offers a great vantage point for exploring all of what upper New York state has to offer. Auskerada (Aus-ker-a-da), meaning 'the stream of many fishes,' is one of several Mohawk Indian names for the East Canada Creek. Auskerada provides a private and comfortable place to settle in, with a natural stone, wood-burning fireplace and modern amenities,including wireless internet,digital cable, and free statewide long distance.

The cabin has rustic charm that only a cabin can offer. Beautifully decorated with original Adirondack style pieces by the owner, Auskerada offers 3 bedrooms, and sleeps 6. A great lodge for a romantic weekend getaway or a top quality vacation week for you and your family. Relax in our year-round comfortable setting.

Our guests reviews certainly speak for themselves. Using words as 'AMAZING', 'CLEAN', 'PEACEFUL', 'PRIVATE', 'BEAUTIFUL', 'QUIET', and 'PERFECT'. We know that all the hard work that we've put into this lodge was well worth it and the response from our guests is the greatest reward.

Our rooms and living spaces are elegant, comfortable, and inviting. Every view out any window reminds you of why you chose this cabin. The grounds are nicely landscaped in the Adirondack style and is perfect any time of year.

The inside is rustic Adirondack charm! Comfortable log beds and bedding with plenty of seating for everyone. Enjoy 'Pine's Peak' our screened in private balcony with only forest views. Our spring fed well offers the most delicious glass of water imaginable. After drinking our water, bottled water tastes funny.

The wood burning stone fireplace and mantle is inviting and harkens back to a simpler time bringing together friends, family, and acquaintances. The coffee is ALWAYS on us! Enjoy a fresh ground cup of coffee any time of the day. Inside you'll find a generous supply of games and puzzles to encourage quality family time. If being outdoors is your 'thing', a hiking trail right at your door goes on for miles or walk down to the lake to fish, relax on the dock, swim, or canoe with the 2 man canoe we provide.

It has to be clean!! Auskerada is a newly renovated 'upper-quality' lodge. We strive to maintain a very clean, and allergy-free environment. Therefore, we do not allow pets. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

The Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
My girlfriend and I have visited Auskerada Lodge twice in the past year: once in the winter and just recently in the spring/summer. Both times we went up with some friends; all of just young professionals in our late 20s/early 30s.

Simply stated...5 stars does not do this home justice. It is the perfect quaint getaway, only 3.5 hours from NYC. In the winter we went down hill and cross country skiing (across a frozen pond no less) both sites 15 minutes from the cabin. In the spring there are plenty of beautiful hiking trails and activities on the lakes. After being active all day, there is nothing better than relaxing in the jacuzzi or playing a board game with friends in front of the fire. There are also two screened patios, so I enjoyed a peaceful morning reading a book listening to the birds chirp; it's the country life experience without roughing it!

The lodge itself is so beautiful- you would think you're in a movie. So much attention has been paid to the carefully crafted decor with many of the furnishings being made be the owner himself. The owner, Chris, has been nothing from wonderful both times we have stayed at the cabin. So friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the area- he was a pleasure to work with and is always available to make sure everything goes well.

If you have found this listing, you have found a gem. You will have an amazing stay, you will be in awe of the surroundings, you will not want to leave and you will definitely go home bragging to your friends of the beautiful vacation cabin you found and the great memories you made!

The Perfect Cabin in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5
Auskerada (yes, it has a name) was everything we had hoped it would be, and then some! It is a beautifully renovated and decorated haven in an ideal setting. We especially enjoyed the Auskerada trail, which starts right at the end of the driveway. Other highlights include the hot tub, the coffee that was provided, the fireplace (with wood) and the wonderful hand-made furniture. My kids said that we should buy the place! Even though I don't think it's for sale, we'll definitely come back to visit. And Chris even came over and pulled our car out of a snowbank when we got stuck! You will love it!

My husband and I spent a wonderful weekend here in October! Chris is a gracious host and very accommodating! He knew it was our 10 year anniversary and when we arrived we saw a beautiful basket fill with sparkling cider and donuts! The cabin is just breathtaking. It is sparkling clean and beautifully decorated! I high recommend this getaway! It does not disappoint from the crackling fire, rutic adirondack decor to the hot tub overlooking the great Adirondack woods.

If you could imagine a perfect secluded hidaway and then pluck it from your mind... this is it!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent our 1 year anniversary here, for a mini weekend get away from the hustle and bustle of our crazy lives. Unfortunately, we couldn't get away from our jobs for any longer than the weekend so we needed to 'settle' on something close by. I found this little cabin and thought, "this will do." But upon arriving we were blown away by the beauty and charm of this cabin. The pictures do not do it justice!! It was the complete opposite of settling for something, it is a beautiful get away, surrounded by peace and quite and busy little wildlife. We had a romantic dinner planned for Saturday night, but loved the cabin so much, that we decided instead, to order Chinese from a local shop and bring it back to the cabin, so as not to waste any time engulfed in our surroundings.
To top off the natural charm of the location and set up of the cabin, the attention to detail and handmade decor make this cabin one of a kind. Every time I looked around I found something new and interesting to catch my attention.
We simply cannot wait to return to Auskerada! We plan to spend our anniversary here each year, as I now can't imagine finding anything else as perfectly fitting as this! We of course plan to come in the summer too, I am sure that will be a whole new experience all on its own!!
You cannot go wrong vacationing here!!

5 of us rendezvoused for a weekend on this property because it's halfway between NYC and Montreal. It was also an ideal reason to get into the Adirondaks for a spell.
Every inch of this perfectly proportioned cabin speaks of care, craftsmanship, cleanliness and warmth. (That's a recco)
We completed this cozy picture ourselves with fine wines, even better scotch and three meals which we had all given thought to preparing for each other. Saturday we walked a few miles up the Adirondak trail - which can be mounted just a minute away- and we loved every minute of it.
Saturday night after dinner 4 of us enjoyed a walk along Caroga Lake's road til we could go no further...it was perfect.
Chris Simonds is a caring host, a gentleman, and pretty damn fun to keep in touch with regarding anything to do with your visit. When he says 'Anything you need or have questions about..." he means it. The whole experience felt like we were honored guests and Chris is casual and sincere from the get go.
We were only there a day when I texted a few photos to another couple in Montreal and suggested that WE meet this coming summer at Auskerada. I look forward to spending some summer days or weeks in and around his place. (It's also the only place I've ever stayed that I found myself thinking of returning alone perhaps for a brief spell to write or take to the forest with a camera.)
It's just one of those choices that feels perfect. The kind of place that every time you walk in the door it feels like home. Even walking up the drive felt like a welcome return.
