This place is perfect for a young couple like ourselves with no kids. It has everything you need. We will definitely rent again.

Beautiful place. Nice and cozy.

  • 4 of 5

We really liked the place. Perfect size cabin for 2-4 people. Great views of the mountains and the river is close. Everything was clean and well maintained. The grounds around the cabin could use some sprucing up and we were a bit short on bath towells and blankets but those were the only negatives. We would definitely come back again.

Great location, nice interior

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here during a 4-day trip to the area at the beginning of September. This was a great location, and very quiet and secluded. This was the perfect home base for all our Adirondack adventures during our trip. Easy drive to Ausable Chasm, the ferry to VT, Whiteface/Lake Placid, and tons of hiking and scenery in the area obviously. If you're in Jay, definitely check out the Covered Bridge. The bridge itself is historic and cool to see, but also the spot on the river is beautiful and fun for kids to explore and play.

The inside of the cabin was very clean and had all the amenities and supplies we could possibly need. It was a perfect setup for me, my wife, 2 young kids, and our 2 poodles. The exterior, however was getting very overgrown and could use some maintenance. I get that it's a cabin in the woods, but I think the area immediately around the house could be kept up better.

Also communication from the owner was a little lacking. If you're going to list on a site like Homeaway/VRBO, you should be prepared to answer inquiries from the site in a timely manner. But all said, we really liked the cabin and would definitely consider it if we make another trip to the area.

An unclean place and an unavailable owner

  • 1 of 5

We arrived to find the apartment unclean to the point we had to clean the bathroom and kitchen ourselves, remove dirty towels and clothes, remove a silver dollar sized hair ball from the bathtub and another hairball from the sink, wash dishes, clean the sink, toilet and bathtub and use the only towel we could find that wasn't dirty. There is no on site washing machine so we could not clean other towels and had to share one towel between two people. It was unclear if the bed linens were clean so we slept on top of them. I photographed all of it because it is too hard to believe this was real.

I called the owner and send him two messages. He did not respond to either one. I am now filing a complaint with VRBO and seeking a refund of cleaning deposit and partial refund of rental fees.

Stay here at your own risk.

Great cozy cabin for getting away!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I went up for a weekend of triathlon training. Cabin was perfect for our needs. Off the beaten path but accessible to Wilmington, Whiteface and Lake Placid within 20-30 minutes. Cabin is about 5 miles off 86. So in theory, we could have ridden our bikes right onto the Ironman course (except for the little bit of dirt roads).

Fully stocked cozy studio cabin. Kitchen had more gadgets than I have at home! Keurig, regular coffee maker, toaster, microwave, blender and gas stove to name a few, plus a gas grill and fire pit. More cleaning supplies than two type A triathletes could imagine using. Towels and extra pillows and blankets were also available. Garage was perfect size for Honda CRV with tow hitch bike rack to fit. This was super convenient!!

It rained all weekend for us so we didn't get to play with the fire pit. You may want to bring your own wood to burn. There seemed to be some available but it's something to think about. I didn't notice sticks for marshmellows either.

We took a hike down to the river as well. Very steep and trail was slightly overgrown but as long as you have a decent sense of direction (and adventure!) you'll be fine. It's gorgeous there and worth it for some good pics.

There is a DVD player but movie selection is limited. Bring your favorite movie or two should you find yourself needing to pass the time. In addition to DVD, the TV is set up for Direct TV and there is also a WII game system.

Based on previous recommendation of "easy to lock yourself out", we left one key in the lock box just in case we got locked out.

Double check hot water when you get there. Hot water heater was set to "vacation mode" when we arrived but we didn't know until we needed to shower (our bad). We received immediate assistance though!

All in all, great place to stay! I can't wait to bring my husband up for a romantic weekend getaway!
