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.

This cabin and it’s owners are amazing. I was able to message jeanice with questions on things to do in the area. They helped us pick a dinner restaurant that was perfect. The cabin literally has everything you could need. We were here just a surprise weekend getaway for my boyfriends birthday. Wanted some rest and relax time and we definitely got that. The hot tub was so relaxing and we even used the jacuzzi tub too. They have games and puzzles. We even did a puzzle while relaxing by the fire. Everything was great. They have tons of tourist information all here for you to go thru. This stay was everything I hoped it would be and more. Thanks so much for a great experience. We look forward to visiting again.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin nestled in the trees right on the river. All you can hear is the sound of the water running over rocks. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need and the owner Jeanice makes sure you have fresh eggs- bread- juice and milk in the frig when you arrive. Beds are very comfortable. Awesome screened in porch to sit on day or night and enjoy the view! Definitely recommend the cabin for a week end get away or week away. We'll be back!! Thank you Jeanice for sharing your beautiful cabin -already have you booked again! Ginny - Tim-Nancy and Glen

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?
