River Front Log Cabin Near 1000 Islands, Adirondacks, Canada

Sleeps6
Bedrooms 3
Bathrooms2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 - 3 nights

Overview

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.

SELECT THE VIDEO TAB ABOVE THE PHOTO TO WATCH A 2-MINUTE YOUTUBE VIDEO SLIDESHOW AT WHISPERING WATER.

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.

better than expected

  • 5 of 5

I have never seen a cabin so incredibly prepared. Every possible detail was taken care of. Jeanice thought of everything, from a stocked fridge to snacks to coffee makers and she even had a cardboard box for us to save a partly finished jigsaw puzzle. The views were fantastic, we normally do not vacation at the same spot twice but this will be our first exception.

Amazing updated cabin surrounded by a river

Everything in the cabin is spotless with a deck that overlooks a waterfall. Romantic bedroom and hot tub. Worth a trip just for this beautiful spot.

Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Great cabin. One of the most relaxing weekends we've had in awhile. Jeanice and Ted thought of everything, from the basket of goodies as soon as you walk in, staples in the fridge and stocked cupboards, pellet stove going and music on upon arrival, it really set the mood for the weekend. Perfect!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

Map

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?
