Guestbook comments from the owner

We absolutely loved this home. It's beautiful, has great views, awesome taxidermy animals, relatively close to town, very warm and cozy. Hot tub was great and the house had everything we needed.

Amazing Place!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely beautiful. Myself and 8 other girlfriends met up here to catch up after 30 years. The weather was colder than we expected but with the hot tub and fires each night we had a great time. This home is not only beautiful, but it is HUGE. Plenty of room, clean and very well taken care of. I think this just may be an annual meet up place for us each year. Definitely recommend this place to anyone. Looking forward to coming back!!

One of the best views you'll get!

  • 4 of 5

The pictures are impressive but don't nearly do this beautiful home justice. The views of First Lake are spectacular. There was nothing better than getting up in the morning, drinking coffee on the large deck, and watching the sun rise. Except maybe watching the sun set, starting a fire in the fire pit next to the lake, listening to the loons calls at night, and watching the stars. Or maybe relaxing in the hot tub and watching boats coast by just outside of your backyard. A very Adirondack feel to the interior with animals from the region displayed around the house. I rented this home in late May for a family reunion and we will have greay memories to last a lifetime. The owner was prompt and courteous with any questions, as was the caretaker. They offered more conveniences than advertised on the website (even included a 2 person paddle boat which my nephew loved) and had comfortable beds along with an impressive master bedroom. All of the amazingness so why the 4 star rating? Only because there are a few things that coud use some updating. The pool table and piano are in poor shape, some of the outdoor chairs are falling apart, and the gaming and books were missing items and in rough shape. All very minor things since we were there for the location, the view, and the outdoors but nonetheless noticeable and could use some updating. Let's call it 4 1/2 stars. Overall, a fantastic vacation in a fantastic location and I look forward to coming back again someday.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

My family visited for a snowmobiling trip that ended up without much snow. Our consolation was being able to stay in such a beautiful home. It felt as if we were able to rent one of the "Great Camps" only with modern amenities! Everything at this property is perfectly planned out from the radiant heat in the flooring, to the beautiful great room overlooking the lake with an amazing fireplace, to the terraced lawn leading down to the lake that include a six person hot tub. The bedrooms being off to the side allow those that are tired to rest while those that are awake or entertaining using the great room or game room are not even heard. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and definitely plan on visiting again!

One of a kind property

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I booked this property for a "kidless" weekend. The husbands were planning to go snowmobiling and us ladies were to enjoy the hot tub. Needless to say we were lacking snow this winter so we all stayed put to enjoy the cabin. There were some hiccups in our stay but nothing that could have been predicted or avoided. The caretaker was extremely nice, quick to respond, and addressed the issue as fast as the circumstance allowed. The owner handled this by allowing us to stay as late as we wanted on our check out day, which was extremely nice of him. The views are spectacular, the home is stunning! The pool table has seen better days, but we were able to make it work. The property was clean and well maintained although the smokers need to respect the property a bit more and pick up their cigarette butts, as the snow was melting so there were quite a few butts around. I would, and have, recommend this property to anyone planning a trip to this area and plan to book again maybe with the children. Thank you for a peaceful and enjoyable weekend!
