10/10 will stay again, everything about the place was amazing, beautifully decorated, has everything you could need, the views are great, we arrived around 930 at night after a long drive and we were starving but everything was closed it was amazing to find some pasta and sauce in the cabinet! We of course replaced what we ate but it was a great experience we will be back

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.
