Perfect location and setting!
Everything in tha cabin and with the owners was beyond expectations! There will be nothing but good memories and peace and quiet with this property.
Quiet retreat tucked away in the woods.
We had a fantastic time. The property was clean and the kitchen was well equipped. All you can see is one neighbor'a house and we heard nobody during our stay here. Very convenient to town. A hummingbird, a rabbit and some deer were our only visitors. Very happy and are considering coming back.
Very nice place - we enjoyed our stay
I rented this house because of its proximity to the lakeside house the rest of my extended family was renting. This house was very nice, clean and everything was in a good condition. The kitchen has plenty of pots, pans and dishes to satisfy your needs. The grill was in good shape and worked well and was reliable for cooking steak or chicken. When we arrived, the house was a bit warm and took a while to cool off as there is no AC but there are plenty of fans for each room. Since there are bears in the area (very cool to see one) I did not think it wise to leave the sliders open at night which cut the circulation a bit. Better safe than sorry. There is also wi-fi and decent cell service for those not seeking full disconnection from the outside world.
There is access to the pond across the street if you want to do some canoeing with the kayaks and canoe provided by the owners. The waterfront access is not somewhere you can spend a day at if that is what you are seeking. My family and I made use of the canoes a couple days to just paddle around and have a couple hours of family time before moving on to the next activity.
This is really a great house if you are coming to the ADK and need a home base for your fishing, hiking and/or sightseeing activities. At night, there is a nice firepit to hangout and drink some beer or wine by the fire.
My family and I enjoyed our stay.
