River Front Log Cabin Near 1000 Islands, Adirondacks, Canada

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 1 - 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This log cabin is named Whispering Water because of the scenic water fall views of the Oswegatchie River from the living room, master bed room and deck.

Hardwood floors throughout. Large master bedroom with queen bed and picture windows facing the river. 2 small bedrooms, each with double bed. Air conditioning both levels.

The swimming pool and deck are perched at the river's edge. The porch overlooking the pool and river is screened for sitting out at night. A 2 person hot tub on the deck is available year round.


Explore the northcountry with day trips to the Adirondacks, 1000 Islands, Ottawa or Kingston Ontario. (If you plan to go to Canada, remember your passport or enhanced driver's license.)

Or just kick back with a good book and relax to the sounds of the river.

Lakes with public boat access are located in the area. We will provide a canoe and accessories for those would like to explore local lakes and rivers. Bring your fishing poles.

Amish farms and shops are numerous in Saint Lawrence County.

If you enjoy road biking, you can ride from the cabin on miles of rural country roads that are lightly traveled. We can guide you with routes from 2 to 40+ miles that wander thru the countryside.

In addition, 4 colleges are located nearby:

25 miles to Canton (Canton College, Saint Lawrence University)

35 miles to Potsdam (Potsdam College, Clarkson University)

Staying at Whispering Water is unique way for the family to be together during visits to the colleges for graduations or special events.

It is 20 miles to Fort Drum if you are considering a visit that doubles as a vacation for the family.

The property is offered for rent all four seasons. Fall colors are brilliant with many maples trees in view. During a winter retreat the pellet stove provides penetrating warmth. Winter is a wonderful time to relax and reflect.

The cabin gives a deep woods feel while being close to a small town.

A word of caution:

Since the property is surrounded on 3 sides by rapid water and steep rock ledges that drop to the water's edge, we do not encourage visitors staying at the cabin with very young children. Close supervision near the river and at the pool is a must.

Quiet and restful.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a weekend away to celebrate our 10th Anniversary. We've rented a few homes before for vacations but never have we stayed anywhere that provided such attention to detail. From the snacks to the milk and eggs and many other things as well, we were very impressed and grateful. We enjoyed our stay immensely. We'd recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a quiet retreat.

This has to be one of the prettiest cabins you will ever vacation at. It's very clean, comfortable and comes with wonderful hosts. They have really thought of EVERYTHING and are so generous in EVERYTHING they do. The views from the cabin are amazing!!! Thank you for opening up your home to us for the 3rd year in a row. Pat

A Perfect Romantic Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot for a Romantic Getaway! You can easily lose the bulk of the day just sitting with your loved one watching the rapids/falls from the windows of the Master Bedroom or the screened porch. The pool is just right for a dip together, the the privacy and seclusion of the property can't be beat.

Jeanice and Ted are lovely hosts. They have stocked the cabin with so many wonderful surprises, from board games to picnic supplies. The movie selection was fun to go through and we did make use of the robes, snacks and other amenities as well.

If you get a chance, do check out some of the local wineries. they are worth a trip.

We were incredibly delighted by so many aspects of this rental. The cabin itself was beautiful and cozy and just felt like it was tended to with love and care by the owners. The location on the bend of the river is breathtaking - even on the few rainy days we had, we loved looking out over the water and hearing the sound of the river rushing by. The outdoor space is also great - with pool and hot tub, and a screened in porch perfect for enjoying the view well into the evening hours. I would definitely recommend this cabin to anyone looking for rest and relaxation, or to have a cozy place to come back to after more active adventures in the area. We hope to go back someday!

Car: necessary

'Nearby' is a relative term. We have not listed skiing, but within 1 1/2 to 2 hour drive there is skiing at Titus Mountain, Tupper Lake, Turin, Dry Hill, Whiteface. A Snowmobiling trailhead is within a 15 minute drive. Great museums in Ottawa, 1 1/2 hr away. Movie theaters are 1/2 hour away. A nice 9 hole golf course is just up the road. Ice fishing anyone?
