I am an artist (muralist and decorative painting) living in NYC.

Inez Foose purchased this cottage in 2001

I acquired this cabin from it's original owner who grew up around these lakes in the summer. I was thrilled that it had never been 'upgraded'. I refurbished it while trying to keep true to a vintage 50's lake cabin and still enjoy combing the local yard sales for items that belong to this venue.

Lovely view of lake from front room and also thru the interior window while laying in bed. The sunrise over the lake can be glorious.

In the spring and early summer, the frogs croaking and in the fall, geese honking serenade the otherwise quiet setting.

CALM... UNIQUE...

  • 5 of 5
Beside the lake is a small boat dock. A single chair awaits. Calm and beautiful, the view across lily pads to the hills has a mystical quality. The canoe slides seamlessly across the lake with sleepy abandon. The cabin is sweet with many fine details. It seems it was a kind of archaeological adventure to keep many of its original fittings yet transformed by its owner's unique personality. It was a treat to carry the little radio around to the outdoor shower or to the lake to listen to some excellent local radio. We loved our few days there, keeping it simple...

FUNKY FUN PROPERTY

  • 4 of 5
We had a lot of fun in this cute, funky cabin. It was perfectly appointed with all that you need: fully stocked kitchen, firewood, assistance in navigating and finding food and restaurants in the area. I spent most of my time reading in the amazing front room with its view of the lake, while my husband explored local fishing holes. The high end radio was a great bonus. We found some fantastic local radio stations that helped with the mood and the vibe. We definitely would return - perhaps when there are less mosquitos in the area. No fault of the accomodations - it was just that time of year and the weather was unseasonably hot. But we were not mosquito-affected at all in the cabin :)

GREAT LAKE GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
This is a very well-furnished cabin with a homey feel. Went there for 2 nights with friends and enjoyed getting away from NYC. A very idyllic and scenic location across the street from a large pond and minutes away from a lake with a small beach. This cabin was a great place for a short getaway; quiet, comfortable and quirky with its retro style and charm. The pictures give an accurate impression of the condition of the place, and the common area is actually is a bit larger than it seems in the photos. Inez was very helpful and accessible to answer questions. We felt very satisfied with how she treated us as tenants and the whole experience was professional.

The area isn't a place to go for fine dining or nightlife. However, if you are looking for a quiet place to relax and unwind with family or friends it is great. There are places to swim, canoe, and hike; outdoor enthusiasts should enjoy this area.

It is an older cabin so don't expect brand new furnishings and amenities. But everything was clean and well-maintained so this isn't really a complaint, but rather a heads-up. Would definitely recommend this property to others and looking forward to visiting again in the future!

THE PERFECT RETREAT WITH VINTAGE CHARM

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect two-day getaway from the city. The small cabin accommodated two couples nicely. As the bedrooms are not separated by closing doors there is little privacy, but we didn't come to the cabin for privacy and the beds were comfortable. We couldn't have found a better place to spend the Fourth of July with friends grilling in the backyard amongst the lighting bugs and canoeing around the little lake.

SWEET, COMFORTABLE WITH TONS OF PERSONALITY

  • 4 of 5
I loved this cabin. My husband, daughter and I enjoyed ourselves. It was just far away from town to feel quiet and relaxing, and close enough to be convenient. We swam, canoed, went for walks, climbed a miniature mountain, ate, sat in the hammock... The cabin itself is so clearly loved and personal. The owner was very nice, as well. We will definitely come back.
