River Front Log Cabin Near 1000 Islands, Adirondacks, Canada

Bedrooms 3
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 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.

We loved our stay at Jeanice & Ted's cabin! The views are spectacular, the cabin is spotless and they have equipped it with everything you will need to immediately make you feel right at home. Even though it was under 10 degrees, it did not stop us from enjoying the hot tub overlooking the river! We are already looking at future dates for coming back! Thanks again Jeanice & Ted!

Wonderful peaceful quiet

We loved our stay. It was secluded enough. If u like hiking and nature upstate New York is the place to be.

A voir, ou plutot à expérimenter ABSOLUMENT!!

  • 5 of 5

Comme d'habitude (cà fait 6 ans déja...), ce furent les plus extraordinaires vacances de relaxation et de romantisme que nous ayons eu; la rivière était haute et le bruit des chutes aussi relaxant qu'à l'habitude.

Les pieds devant le feu en jouant au cartes, les déjeuners-maison en écoutant la musique de Noel, les emplettes au centre d'achat de Watertown(à seulement 40min) pour un retour bien mérité au bercail......Impossible de se lasser, ou mieux de ne pas se prélasser; On ne peut que se laisser impreigner de la tranquilité de la nature et de l'hospitalité hors du commun des hotes Jeanice et Ted; Malgré toute cette détente et cette belle nature le chalet de bois rond est néanmoins équipé de toutes les commodités modernes tel wi-fi, cable tv, spa, piscine, cafetiere automatique, radio digitale, cuisine complète, livres, films, jeux, laveuse-secheuse ET le superbe lit Queen de la chambre principale avec vue sur la rivière et salle de bain privée. MERVEILLEUX!!! Merci Whispering Water, à l`année prochaine. :)

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?
