Shopping/supplies: The village of Croghan is 7 miles away and offers a Nice n Easy Grocery Shoppe that has food, camping supplies, gas, propane, souvenirs, etc. There is also Monnats IGA, a full line grocery store. The Croghan Meat Market is famous for Croghan Bologna and also offers great steaks, lobster tails, etc. Vinny's Pizza is on Main Street as well as Schultz's Restaurant. Good ol' Wishy's is a local legend, a real old fashioned ice cream parlor. The Beaver River flows through town and at one time powered the Croghan Island Mill which is still an operating lumber mill. There's a nice park in town with a playground, tennis court, ball diamonds, etc. Croghan is famous for Maple Syrup and is home of the American Maple Museum on Main Street. The Northern New York Railroad Museum is also on Main Street as is Stumps Laundramat, a Liquor Store, and Video Rental, Monnat - Nortz Mobil is a full service gas station on Main Street. Buckingham Hardware on Main is also an Outdoor Sports Store.

Effley Falls Reservoir: Effley Falls Reservoir is part of the Beaver River Canoe Route. The Beaver River flows into the east end of the lake. We sometimes beach the boats there and slide down the waterfalls, or venture upstream to explore the river and the surrounding remote forest. The lake has some great beaches and coves to explore. Most of the shoreline is undeveloped. We love the peace and quiet, even on holiday weekends, There are no public boat launches on the lake so access is restricted to those who own property, or those who canoe or kayak the Beaver River Canoe Route. Aside from our own private beach, there are three other really nice sandy beaches, one on the east end accessible only by water, one on the west end, and our favorite is on the North Shore which is also only accessible by water.

The Property: Our Lodge was newly constructed in 2006. All furniture and fixtures were purchased new, and expressly to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment. Our property is over 7 acres in size, and bordered by water on two sides. Our beach and dock area is great for swimming, fishing, boating, digging in the sand, or just relaxing. We also have marked hiking trails along the water's edge, and also a trail to the highest point of a ridge on the property that offers a long range view across the lake and forests beyond, We have a great outdoor fire-pit overlooking the lake and plenty of firewood on hand. Most of the property is wooded, but there are two nicely maintained lawns, one behind the lodge, and one overlooking the beach. Play ball, or just relax in a lawn chair. Our huge front porch has mahogany flooring and overlooks the lake. It's a great shady and cool spot to relax on a hot summer's day. Included are two fishing boats (we supply the gas), a 17 foot canoe, and a 14 foot kayak.

This home is gorgeous! Words cannot describe the beauty of the lodge and the property. If you are looking for a place to relax and make the "outside world" disappear, this is the place for you!

Gary, the owner, is very friendly, accomodating, and he knows the area well. He is very helpful. He takes pride in his house and land, and it shows through with all of the amenities he offers.

Also, don't let the 7 mile drive to town bother you. Very few cars on the road, extremely quick ride, and plenty of parking in town. All of the shopowners and workers were very nice and proud of their town.

There is relaxation, recreation, and wild blackberries in abundance at this location! We didn't expect for the lake to feel so quiet and secluded; much of the time we seemed to be the only ones on it. Otherwise, we only spotted one or two fishing boats or kayaks. This makes for a the perfect retreat for nature-lovers to unwind. The sandy beach is comfortable enough for even the littlest ones to swim and wade. The cleanliness and conveniences of the lodge were also much appreciated. It was one of the best (of many) lake vacations I've had. We definitely hope to return.

This was our third stay at this property, and we've never been disappointed. The kayaking is great. We took a trek downstream, and the views were beautiful. There's also plenty to explore without ever leaving the pond. We enjoyed watching the beaver, loons, and a fawn playing in the water along the shore. The kids had some fun with the motorboats too. Even if you don't venture out on the pond, you can sit on the porch or beach and enjoy the scenery or read a book. The furnishings are very comfortable, and the place is neat and clean. We had one rainy day, so we made some popcorn and had a DVD movie day. Of course our trip wouldn't have been complete without a few trips to Good Ol' Wishy's. Gary and Barb are terrific hosts, and we look forward to returning again in the future.

Our experience at this house was outstanding!! Gary was extremely flexible and went out of his way to make sure all of our needs were met. The amenities were abundant and the house was perfectly situated and furnished for our two families with 5 kids under 5!

We spent adventurous days out on the boats, swimming and fishing and loved to take trips across the lake to "vertical beach." The kids really enjoyed playing in the fort and swing area and loved sleeping all together in the loft area. Our biggest adventures though were connecting with nature, picking eatable berries, watching deer and even observing a bear when it ventured by (all were safe and it was an amazing experience).

Town was very near by for the last minute needs and we can't rave enough about Old Wishy's ice cream parlor!! It was fantastic and worth the two trips we made into town!!

Thank you Gary for sharing your home!!

This house is a treasure. The furnishings were nicely done, and you just can't beat the location for a completely relaxing vacation. Gary was knowledgable on the area, and a pleasure to deal with. Even our teenagers enjoyed it. We plan on returning again.
