Owner purchased this Cabin in 2008
Why Owner chose Preston
Our family has been going to this lake for over 20 years, and has another cabin on the lake. We just had this (2nd) cabin built in 2008 because the extended family was getting too big for just one cabin when everyone comes to visit...but we're not at the cabin many other weeks of the year.
What makes this Cabin unique
Fishing, swimming, walking, sailing, kayaking, watching sun sets, sitting around wood stove, watching fall foliage, etc.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Perfect for a quiet stay
We have just returned from a wonderful long weekend at this well appointed cabin. It was so quiet and peaceful, probably because we went early enough in the season. It is beautifully decorated throughout, has such a friendly welcoming feel to it. We used the log burning stove one evening as it was a bit chilly on the first night, that is marvellous and keeps everything so cosy. Then we did heaps of fishing, relaxing, eating and drinking with friends, and of course enjoying the lovely view across the lake. We were just a party of 4 but it can hold many more comfortably. It has great cooking facilities, boat, kayaks and canoe. Not too far to drive for anything you might have forgotten. We are not good with the hot weather and bugs, so will return in the cooler months knowing we shall have a super relaxing time. Would recommend to anyone!
Great Place For Friends, Family & Fishing!
This is the second time myself & my friends have rented this house for a weekend away from the big city. We cannot express how great the house/property & lake are. Highly recommended for a get-a-way with friends/family or your significant other. The house has everything you need, super clean & right on the lake. If you enjoy largemouth & smallmouth bass fishing, then this is the place you want to be! Has yet to disapoint us in any way!
A Must See
My family and I stayed at this beautiful cabin twice in Oct/2011. We had the best time. The fishing was great and the owners were great to work with. I will forever treasure the great moments we had together as a family. Marie is the owner and she is truely a wonderful person. We will be back to enjoy this beautiful place. Thank You for everything Marie.
Great fun for all to enjoy, lasting memories.
My family and I are from Toronto, Canada and prior to visiting relatives in NY, we stayed at this lovely cabin for 5 beautiful days.
My wife, twin boys Dante and Julian (1&half year olds) and I had the time of our lives.
The boys got to enjoy the water for the first time, sitting in the canoes and splashing away.
There is a 2nd enclosed outside shower that allowed us to bathe the children outdoors so clean up was easy before bedtime.
The cabin is new and very clean. The owners Chris and Maria met with us and introduced us to all the necessities we needed to know about recycling, the garbage, lake equipment etc.. Very fun and down to earth couple.
My wife and I fished for the first time, and we had a blast, she caught 4-5 small bass, and a pickeral, and I caught a few pickeral myself.
We are hoping to return to this cabin every 2 years so that Dante and Julian can grow up with the lasting memories of their bi annual cabin vacations
I think one of the best features of this place was the bonfire pit with the large open space balcony which provided us with loads of fun sitting out watching the sun set with drinks in hand and listening to some good music while the children danced around to the music.
