Thousand Islands Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3+ bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 11

This A-frame cottage was completely rebuilt in '04. Its multi-level decks and panoramic windows have spectacular views of Trout Lake and the evening sunsets. The deck is nestled into the rock and is surrounded by pines, giving a sense of being a part of nature. On the deck's first level is a new, large barbecue grill, table and seating; on the second level is a cedar, wood-fired hot tub and more seating; and the third level provides additional seating as well as serves as an entrance to the ground level sleeping porch and stairs to the dock. A deck off the living room and a balcony off the master bedroom offer more views and seating. In living room is a floor to cathedral ceiling stone fireplace and TV w/ over 150 satellite channels. There is a swimming area on the shore, as well as off the dock. A new (2013) 17' pontoon boat w/ 8 hp motor (12' x 7' deck with 4 chairs and 1 bench, collapsible cover), 3 kayaks, stand-up paddle board are provided.

Indoors, the floor to cathedral ceiling fireplace, as well as the spacious picture windows and French doors make the living room a haven of views and comfort. One of the leather sofas opens into a full size bed. Off the living room is the dining room and kitchen. The kitchen has all new cabinets, appliances, Corian countertop, and is fully equipped. Also on the main floor is a bedroom w/ a queen bed across the hall from the full bathroom, which has all new fixtures as well as a stackable washer and dryer. On the second floor is the master bedroom, with queen bed, single bed and private balcony. On the ground level, near the water's edge, is a sleeping porch, with wrap-around screens, and has 2 queen beds--access to the sleeping porch is off the deck. In addition to the fireplace, the cottage has built in propane heaters.

Trout Lake lies in the midst of many recreational opportunities--golf, biking, hiking, spelunking, river kayaking/canoeing, fishing, hunting and unlimited ways for the family to explore the out-of-doors.

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at Sunset Cottage on Trout Lake, and it was everything we had hoped for. The seclusion, view of the lake and pet-friendly accommodations were excellent! There are numerous hiking trails close by that lead to gorgeous waterfalls and cascades, and Adirondack Park is just a breath away. Thank you John and Donna for making our stay so enjoyable, we look forward to spending time in the North Country again soon,

Lake Vacation Getaway - Not enough information

  • 3 of 5

I feel that there isn't enough information on what the property includes - I honestly was disappointed to find out some of the unknown's that I wish I would have known before booking the trip. 1st. We were excited to find out that when we were 2 hours early for check-in that the house was ready and we could get in early, that was great. 2nd. A forewarning about the driveway to the property should have been clearly stated that a 4wd vehicle is needed to get to the driveway - luckily for us - we had 4wd vehicles! But my brother's truck's 4wd had some issues getting into gear and he had a tough time getting up the hill and out and my dad's Explorer slide down the driveway slightly because he didn't put it in 4wd. Now...I took the review by the lady that had stayed here previously with previous trips to the OBX to heart because we've vacationed at the OBX for over 5 years now, and there is no way to compare this house to a house in the OBX. The property was in great shape and clean, no problems with that - the problems I had were the pictures/rooms/information that was left "unknown" for example the 1st floor sleeping porch with the 2 queen beds has no access to the house from the inside and it's simply a room with two beds and no storage...in the middle of the night if you need to go to the bathroom, you must walk out the door up to the next porch and then into the house. The kitchen, although well equipped had NO room for food/storage at all - we came planning to cook and not go to the store the entire week - food needed to be kept in coolers and piled on the small counterspace area and tucked into the book nook before you headed up the stairs...of course we made it work, but I just expected a pantry or some room at least. To get refills on the gas wasn't fun - we didn't know where to go and had to call the owners twice to get directions and drive the pontoon boat over there and make multiple trips to the "gas shed"to fill up. The bathroom included a stacked washer and dryer and a very small shower - which is fine - I just would have liked to have known - you can barely bend down to shave your legs and again no storage for towels, toiletries, etc. The bedroom at the top with the queen and single - the queen is pushed up against the roof and is extremely uncomfortable and don't expect to sleep on the pull out couch unless you are a small kid as that's not comfortable at all. The neighbors across the way were really rowdy, loud and shining lasers....

Owner's Response: We know how important vacation time is and so we are sad to know that your stay at Sunset Cottage was a disappointment to you. We have taken to heart your comments about the lack of information and will expand our descriptions on homeaway.com and in our online guidelines--thank you for pointing this out to us. During your stay my husband went to your cottage to make sure all was well and he was told that you were having a great time and loved the place, except that you were having trouble going up the driveway. I hope that the good memories will help soften the disappointments.

Absolutely LOVED and will return!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sunset over the week of memorial day and have already rebooked for next year. We loved it! The view of the lake was amazing. We did not want to leave and were so sad when the following Saturday came upon us. The fishing was amazing. My husband and son were in their glory. We took evening trips out on the pontoon boat to see the sunsets. Can't wait to go back in 2014.

Sunset Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our recent stay at Sunset Cottage on Trout Lake was simply outstanding. 

The Cottage is very well maintained and decorated beautifully. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the needed pots, pans, appliances and utensils needed. The gas grill was clean and ready to grill, which we did every single night. The multi level decks all had perfect views of this stunning lake and had plenty of seating for all. 

Sunset Cottage is well named as the view of the setting sun across the lake each night where stunning. We loved the boats as well and enjoyed exploring all areas of the lake each day. There are a lot of hiking trails close by, I recommend the one closest to the cottage that afford a view of nearby Cedar Lake, it is not to be missed. 

The owners have set up everything needed for a perfect, relaxing vacation. 

Thank You, 

The Robb Family

PS. The cottage does have a television and Directv set up. I have no idea if it works as we never felt the need to turn it on. I have a feeling that most people that stay there will do the same.

Wedding Week at Sunset Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to have our wedding at Trout Lake because her family had a cottage there and had spent time up there when they were younger. We searched for the right venue and found the perfect spot, the Sunset Cottage. We held the ceremony on the second level of the deck overlooking the lake. It was absolutely beautiful!!! The fall colors and the sun shining off the lake made the perfect setting for our wedding. The cottage fit our 15 dinner guests and made for a great evening.

We then spent the remainder of the week at the cottage. We were able to get out on the Boston Whaler and take tours of the lake and see the other homes. We spent time on each deck and enjoyed a hike in the woods down to the lake overlook. We were able to use the wood fired hottub in the evenings. It was a perfect place to relax and look up at the stars.

The Sunset Cottage was a great place for our wedding and I would recommend anyone who wants to relax and enjoy a great vacation to head up to the Sunset Cottage. This place is perfect for families or several couples looking to getaway! We will definitely be back!

Map

Trout Lake is surrounded by 1600 acres of State forest, where there are state-marked hiking trails. Nearby Cedar Lake and Wolf Lake offer additional trails and fishing opportunities. Trout Lake is annually stocked by NYS Department of Conservation with rainbow and lake trout, large and small mouth bass; perch and rock bass are native and in ample supply for the kids. Directly to the east is the high peaks region of the Adirondack (Lake Placid, the home of 2 Olympics, provides a great day trip-about 90 min); to the south along the St Lawrence River is the famous Thousand Islands Region, where one can enjoy boat cruises, castle sight seeing, boat museums (60 minutes away); to the north and across the Ogdensburg International Bridge awaits Canada's capital city, Ottawa, a city known for its continental flavor, fine dining, museums, tours of the Parliament building, and gardens--a unique excursion (90 min away).
