About the property

Private 2 br 1 ba cabin with dock, canoe, and rowboat

Looking to get away from it all? This cozy cabin, surrounded by meadow and woods, provides lots of privacy, birdsong, and beautiful views of forest on all sides.

The cabin can sleep up to 5 people. There are two bedrooms upstairs, and 1 full bath downstairs. One bedroom has a queen bed, and the other has 2 twins with room to play. There is also a sleeper sofa in the living room, with a comfortable inflatable mattress. Blankets and pillows are provided, but please bring your own sheets and towels.

The living room has 2 comfy sofas - one is a sofa bed - and a very comfy recliner. A large screen porch with a picnic table invites you to dine outdoors in rain or shine or take an afternoon nap on the futon . For cooler days, you can dine indoors in the dining room. Should the weather turn cold, turn up the heat with the wood stove (wood not provided but readily available in the area) or the propane heater. The kitchen has a full size refrigerator and an electric stove, and is well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, silverware, and basic spices.

Outside, there's an open fire pit for campfires and grilling. A large grill rack is provided, but you need to bring your own wood. A short walk down a wooded path from the cabin brings you to a private dock where a canoe and row boat are available for your exclusive use on Paradox Creek and Paradox Lake. Paradox Lake is known for good fishing, canoeing, and kayaking, and this end of the lake is especially known for the fishing! The creek is fun to paddle on. There are usually lots of birds and flowers to look at. Please bring your own life jackets - especially for children!

While you may feel like you're far from everything here, it's only an easy 10 minute drive to Schroon Lake and 20 minute drive to Ticonderoga, for shopping, historic Fort Ticonderoga, larger boat rentals at Schroon Lake Marina, music and musical theater at the Seagle Colony throughout the summer. There are lots of NYS DEC hiking trails (Pharoah Mountain Wilderness) just minutes away, and the Adirondack High Peaks are only about a half hour away. Bring your bicycles - there are quiet country roads for bicycling.

There is also a radio/CD player. It's a great place to unplug, enjoy your family or friends, get outside, or cozy up by the fireside. We hope you'll enjoy our little corner of Paradise as much as we do.

Memorial Day 2017

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I get together annual on Memorial Day to fish and hike in the Adirondack Mountains. For our 2017 trip we chose the Paradox Cozy Cabin. Living in NYC and Eastern LI, Paradox NY is a manageable drive for a long weekend getaway. The cabin was very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and the shower water remained warm. The lighting was excellent for reading and the heater kept the cabin comfortable. The arrival instruction package was detailed, clear, and understandable. The cabin is extremely private and quiet so we slept well in the upstairs bedrooms. It is a bit of a hike to the lake but use of the canoe is a great bonus. We hiked the Grizzle Ocean 5 mile loop located in the Putnam Pond State Campground and climbed Severance Mountain for views of Schroon and Paradox Lakes. We fished using the available canoe in Paradox Lake and caught small northern pike, bass, rock bass, crappie and a large catfish using artificial lures. The only negative were the mosquitoes and black flies.

Home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Very quaint and private cottage in a beautiful setting. The use of the canoe was a bonus that we took advantage of every day! This was the perfect place to "unplug" for a few days, and spend quality time with the family.

Location is beautiful.

Refrigerator broke 1day we were there. This was a major inconvenience with two small children I understand they were going to replace it after we left.

Owner's Response: We did replace the fridge (as well as the stove) as soon as we could get delivery, the day that our guests left. We offered to help them out with space in our fridge, but they managed on their own.

Had all amenities for a wonderful mountain getaway! Beautiful hours spent on the lake !

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the peaceful quiet! A pair of woodpeckers were our company every mornings breakfast! Use of rowboat was so awesome and yet a nice hot shower and solid mattressed beds gave a wonderful nights sleep. Friendly greetings as we rode the mile on bikes up the lake road! We saw 30 species of birds while in the Adirondacks and visited 8 lakes. The owners made contact but left us to our privacy!

Our New Favorite Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin for our fifth anniversary, and it was above and beyond our expectations. The location is the definition of secluded, which is exactly what we were looking for. The hike down to the lake carrying our canoe and getting it into the water was a little trying, and even though it was a bit of a struggle, it was completely worth it. The lake was beautiful, quiet, and had great fishing! We spent most of our days fishing and swimming, spending the whole day on the lake. We went into town for a nice anniversary dinner at Drake's, and it was top notch. The house had anything I could want as far as cooking (pots/pans/utensils/griddle) and had plenty of space. Micki and Dave were easy to keep in touch with, and gave clear, simple instructions on things we needed to know for our stay. Overall, it was a wonderful experience, and we look forward to staying again!
