About the property

2 Bed, 2 Bath Cottage that Sleeps 10

Nestled at the foothills of the Tug Hill Region, this 2 bedroom, 2 bath cottage has all the comforts of home situated in an area with adventure in mind. The floor plan contains two separate bedrooms with two queen size beds in each to allow a quiet getaway for some, while others can tell the tale of the fish that got away. Bathroom 1 contains a 5' stand-up shower and washer/ dryer unit. Bathroom 2 has a jetted tub to soak away a hard day on the snowmobile/ ATV trails. A full service kitchen with 30' stove, full size refrigerator, dishwasher and all the necessary cooking utensils to make preparing the day's catch in the river, lake or woods a snap. After the meal is prepared it can be served in the dining room that seats ten or enjoyed on either of the two exterior attached decks with ample seating for all. After dinner enjoy s'mores at the fire-pit in front of the cottage or relax in the comfortable living room on the sofa, chair or day-bed with trundle bed that sleeps the 9th and 10th guest. We welcome you to enjoy any of our three docks equipped with a paddle boat, row boat and kayak. Or simply relax on the deck by the lake under the umbrella with your favorite book.

Whether you come to fish our lake, the Salmon River, lower or upper reservoir, hike, ski, ride your snowmobile/ATV on the C5 trail, or spend a week unwinding and relaxing; we invite you to try our accommodations at La Bella Vista. We pride ourselves on making your stay memorable and enjoyable.

Thank you,

Brian J. Klefbeck, Your Host

Peaceful, happy place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at La Bella Vista in August 2016, my family rented 4 out of the 5 cabins. My 80-something parents to our 22 year-old son, we all found things to enjoy:: kayaking; row boating; fishing; swimming; reading by the lake in the sun or shade; hiking; family dinners; Scrabble and Dominos; just peace and quiet; lots of laughs; nightly campfires; even trips to the local stores and restaurants for a couple dinners and a breakfast place a couple times. Our "cabin" was more like a house, although you could tell we were in the woods...we were visited by the local friendly rooster, ginnea (sp.) hens, chipmunk...My husband wasn't so sure if he'd be able to wind down and "what would he do up there for a whole week?". He was the first one I heard to say he'd "go back there again"! We might even bring the dog! Thank you for a wonderful place for our whole family to enjoy, even the two pugs!

Great little house by a beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for a 4 day weekend with a group of 9 friends. Everything in the house was in great shape and though it was a bit tight for all of us, that really wasn't a problem.

The lake was beautiful and we were glad to have the boats.

It's a bit far from here to Alexandria bay or Watertown, but we made the drive a few times to go rafting, flyboarding, and for dinner.

I'm not sure how best to describe our vacation except PERFECTION! We were so excited to arrive with our two young sons and dog and were beyond happy with the cabin. The pictures don't do it justice! The layout (multilevel) was awesome and we didn't want to leave to go home! We met some very nice people staying in the other cabins and our dog made some new friends. The lake was quiet and we swam, paddle boated and kayaked for hours every day. We enjoyed smores over the campfire and I relaxed on the multiple porches and docks every morning with my coffee, which was exactly what I wanted on vacation! Brian was very helpful and gave us directions to Salmon River falls (beautiful!) and the fish hatchery just up the road. Pulaski is only a 10-15 minute drive away with super friendly and helpful staff at the bait shops. The boys are already begging to go back and we definitely will! They fished for the first time and just loved this relaxing family vacation. Being able to take our dog, have wifi and everything we needed to cook meals was a god send. Thank you again!

Wonderful peaceful stay

  • 5 of 5

The house was a lot bigger than we expected and we quickly made ourselves at home. It was a very quiet and comfortable stay. We had a great time taking the boats out many times and catching lots of fish. The kids had a great time being outdoors and also enjoyed the convenience of the wifi and cable. We will absolutely be back!
