We enjoyed our stay very much in this secluded, peaceful cottage. Wonderfully located directly on the lake. Cottage was very clean and owners were very helpful. Since it is located in the woods you would need a higher clearance vihicle. Good location for some daily trips.
Peaceful getaway for the nature lover!
Great cottage for nature lovers peaceful getaway! Plenty of fishing, kayaking, swimming. Literally, only needed to bring food/drink, bedding sheets/ towels. Everything else you would need is already there. Super nice property owners!
A quite place to stay
We have been renting this cottage every year since 2006. It is clean, spacious, remote and quiet. It's a beautiful place to get away from the craziness of the working world. This year is the first year we have ever had a problem. He leave our boat trailer at the public launch. It was vandalized this year with valve stems being cut and the wench strap being stolen. How sad! It doesn't steal our joy of a great vacation! We use the generator little. It's a great place to enjoy the outdoors. The owners are wonderful people and are easy to get in touch with if needed.
Beautiful cottage away from it all. Very clean, well maintained. Owner did not give enough info re: boat launching & steps/wooden walkway/rocky path down to the water. Difficult to navigate. Swimming was great. Lake water very clean & refreshing. Refrigerator very small. Be sure to take camping coolers for juice & beverages. Loud generator. Very spacious & scenic.
As we drove into the very secluded cottage we were greeted by a fawn and two doe. The wildlife included turkey, loons, and hummingbirds. We spent most our time at the lake fishing, canoeing, and kayaking. Great fishing off the dock or on a boat. Public boat launches available. Private dock included with cottage. The cottage was spacious with an open loft overlooking very open first floor. The property was secluded, yet had many modern conveniences. We would recommend the cottage to anyone looking to get away from the hustle of tourist traps. The lake feels like your own private retreat with minimal boat activity. The year was a wet one so bug spray is a must. Great overall expereince.
After the long travel to the cottage on the narrow one lane cliff edged road you find a beautiful get away cottage on what seems to be your very own lake. (Not really that bad once you know what to expect.) The home is set up great for familys and the owners have provided many of the conviences that you use in your own home. If you don't need to take a lot of day trips this is the place for you. We enjoyed our time and wished we could stay longer.
Red Lake is one of the Indian River Lakes located near Theresa, NY and about 1/2 hour from the Thousand Islands and the St Lawrence River.
