About owners/property manager
After building tree forts in the woods behind his house as a young boy, my husband Rick decided one day he would build his own cabin. Mountain Laurel is the result of this dream. Hand built from the trees on the property, the cabin is situated privately on 50 acres of pine woods.
owners/property manager purchased this Cabin in 2010
Why owners/property manager chose Lowville
We loved this property as soon as we saw it. The sweet smell of pine greets you and the soft moss on the ground makes hiking on the property ideal.
What makes this Cabin unique
Situated privately on fifty acres of pine woods, with your own spot of peaceful quiet, the cabin is unique. From the porch you can sip tea or coffee and listen to the birds greet the morning. From the balcony, you can see for ten miles. If it's a quiet get-away you're looking for, you've found it!

Great weekend at a beautiful cabin!!
Mountain Laurel is beautiful inside and out. Rick and Maria are truly amazing people. We will definitely be back for another visit.
Beautiful Cabin Escape from the City
The cabin was beautiful, cozy, and everything inside was extremely well thought out. The cabin is set far enough back from the road that you feel like you are the only people around for miles. We stayed a full week with our two toddlers and two small dogs. Everyone enjoyed their stay and my 2 year old didn't want to leave. Everything that Rick and Maria have done with their cabin in order to help their guests is meticulous. We were able to come right in and figure everything out so easily! They were also extremely helpful in finding where you can get supplies or activities in the area. Everything they did to prepare made it so we could just move right in and enjoy our stay!
Thank you so much Kristin for taking the time to write this wonderful review. We appreciate it so much! Glad you enjoyed your stay!

Absolutely beautiful cabin. The craftsmanship and ingenuity that went into it are truly impressive. Everything has a purpose, and again, the woodwork is really beautiful. The kitchen table is something else. Kids had a blast. It was like a private beach with bonfires and historical nerf wars. If you want to unplug and have a really nice time with your family this is a prime location. Hope to head back soon. -The Bickels
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We really appreciate your words as we have put so much love into the cabin. We're so happy your family enjoyed their stay!

Had a great time!
Our stay was absolutely wonderful! It was so peaceful and relaxing. We enjoyed kayaking and just sitting on the front porch. We knew the cabin was run on solar power, but we didn't realize it was only 12 volt. So we had to go out and buy a charger adapter that fit a cigarette lighter to charge our phones (unfortunately we couldn't completely unplug with a child at home).
Glad you enjoyed your stay and had a relaxing time. There is an adapter on the window sill to charge phones in the cabin. Also as the cabin is 12V just like a car, many people use their car charger they use to charge their phone in their car.

Relaxing and Fun
My friend and I decided to surprise our husbands for their birthdays, which are only 4 days apart (and who have been best friends since childhood) We wanted to escape the daily craziness and cities for awhile. We love to kayak and the outdoors. This cabin was perfect for a weekend getaway. Cozy with enough room for the four of us. Croghan is a few miles down the road with a quick access to all your needs. Finding a lake was a little difficult with the maps and lake of cell service but we found one! Even with the rain it didn't effect our moods. We had a fire every night and made friends with a few toads. The outside shower was a lot of fun too! We enjoyed our stay and plan to make a yearly event.
Can't wait to come back!
Spent 3 nights here and enjoyed every minute!
Thank you so much Andrew. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

There are many lakes a short distance drive from us for canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming. In the winter Snow Ridge Ski Resort is known for the first snow of the season in NY. It's 25 minutes away from us. For snowmobilers, we are in a wonderful secluded location. You can ride through the mountains to Stillwater, Old Forge and Tug Hill.
Please reserve cabin 48 hours in advance of arrival date. You must be 21 years of age to rent the cabin. If you would like to bring your dog, please let us know so we can tell you our pet policy. Thank you.
