Athol Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Log Cabin, 4 Bedrooms & Bunk loft w/ 4 twins, 1Full Bath, (Sleeps 12)

Massive hand-peeled logs shipped from British Columbia create the framework for this beautiful Adirondack Great Camp. Wake up to the peace and quiet of the woods that surround and the sunrises that stream in thru the large expanse of glass. A front deck off the great room and the attached covered porch make for wonderful gathering areas for cookouts, or to sit and watch the beautiful sunsets drop behind the Adirondack Mountains. The main floor is comprised of a custom kitchen with beautiful spruce cabinets and an 18' stone island which makes for an enjoyable meal preparation and gathering area, a dining room and great room with a large wood-burning fireplace under a massive cathedral ceiling and loft area. The main floor also includes one bedroom, the main bath with tub and shower . The loft area upstairs includes a large master bedroom with a king-sized bed and bunk room (holding 4 twin beds). The lower level is comprised of two large bedrooms ( each with queen beds and one twin ) . A game room and large beverage bar. The floors throughout are toasty warm with radiant heat. Located just 11 miles north of Lake George Village, 18 miles to the slopes of Gore . Boating, fishing, kayaking or canoeing just a few miles in any direction, this delightful Adirondack cabin will provide privacy, seclusion and quiet times and yet all the outdoor activity anyone could hope for. The Cabin is located just 5 minutes from the beautiful BURLAP & BEAMS wedding venue. We are sorry to announce the cabin NO longer excepts pets due to continual damage.

About Amy

Our family grew up here in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. My husband, children and I built the cabin .Ten years from start to completion. My husband passed before we were able to finish it together. Our children and family members helped finish the cabin and readied it for vacation rental. We love sharing the cabin, its building stories and all it has to offer.

Amy purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Amy chose New York

We love the beauty, peace and quiet. Yet Lake George, Saratoga and North Creek for all they have to offer are about a 30 minute drive or less.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin offers privacy and quiet. Also a chance to experience the warmth ,comfort and beauty of a true log cabin.

The cabin is located nearby Lake George, Schroon, Loon, Garnet & Brant Lakes as well as the Hudson & Schroon Rivers.

It is immaculately cleaned for each guest.

Beautiful cabin, beautiful setting....

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Enjoyed going up Prospect

Mountain..and we hiked to the top...about a 4-5 min hike..

Also enjoyed going into Lake George, altho many of the shops

were closed, we had a nice lunch. Wish we could have stayed

a week, as there is so much to do in this area, altho staying

at the cabin and relaxing there is great, too. You will love this

Beautiful beyond expectation!

  • 5 of 5

We decided to do a cabin weekend in Lake George in Sept. solely because I wanted the chance to stay in this cabin.... and it was even more beautiful than I imagined when I came in! My friends and I were awe struck! The fireplace and lighting was gorgeous, the fire pit outside was by far one of the nicest I've ever seen, and the entire house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked so we were able to make delicious meals, sit back, and enjoy the peace and quiet.

Amy was the perfect host - very attentive and helpful, and answered all of my questions quickly! We'll definitely be planning a return trip here. Thank you for everything, Amy!

Great place.

  • 4 of 5

Upon walking in the door, everyone's jaw hit the floor due to how nice this place is and how impressed we were that this is a genuine log cabin. The house was big enough to accommodate all 11 adults with regard to bedding. The explanation of the rooms was a bit confusing. We did not realize that the master bedroom was not enclosed and had an opening that led to the area with four twin beds. This was not an issue for us, but something someone expecting privacy in those rooms should know. Amy was very thorough with providing us info such as things to do, places to eat, etc., many of which we did and were very pleased with. The house is very clean, with minor ware and tear. Prior to getting to the house Amy communicated various aspects of the house, including the water limit, the no shoe policy, and info on firewood. Some of this info would also benefit being put on the site as we had to plan according esp when it came to showers (which involved couples showering together to conserve water). While not a big deal, it did prove concerning at times as we did many activities which involved us doing an activity, coming home to shower, and then go out again (such as for dinner) - not an easy task for 11 adults in one bathroom and limited supply/pressure. While the tv was not working and the second bathroom was not completed, it did not take away from our stay. The cabin is a great place to have as a home base and to sit outside to see so many stars! We look forward to staying here again in the future.

Owner's Response: I am happy to hear that your stay at the cabin was enjoyable . I want to thank you and your guest for the wonderful care and the manner you left the cabin , not all large groups do so . On the occasion I take groups larger than 8 I worry about damages . I almost would have not known that there were more than 8 guest in your group . You are welcome back anytime . In regards to showering and water . There are really no restrictions other than being mindful that 11 showers back to back will not give the extra large hot water tank time to recover . The upstairs loft master bedroom and nearby bunk room discription and photos will now be more concise than saying loft bedrooms. I will take a few more photos to show that it is an open floor plan on my site . The cabin great room including upstairs loft is open floor plan to show the massive log timbers for character and support of the roof . I understand it may be a drawback for some, however we designed the cabin this way to give a great camp open feeling that creates ambiance and an environment for closeness when staying at a camp . We love laying in bed in the loft master bedroom and bunkroom at night reading , telling stories or listening to the wildlife for all to hear and share the experience . The other 3 bedrooms having doors and privacy for those who prefer . The screen door and the tile as well as the closet door that were broken before your arrival are being repaired , now that time and materials allow. Unfortunately when things are broken during guest stay there are times when getting the necessary items for repair can not happen when oit is a check out and in day . I would love to have you return when the second bathroom is completed . Good news the Wireless is in finally which will make many return guest happy . Thank you again for your reservation . Wishing you a happy Fall . Sincerely , Amy

Every minute was perfect for our family of five, plus a few friends. Could have stayed in the cabin the entire time, it's beauty and amenities were everything needed for a week away from it all. Recommend: Climb Crane Mtn. the view is spectacular, white water rafting was amazing (even with this dry summer), Lake George concert and fireworks, visit the hatchery, take a stroll to see Grandmother Tree and ask Amy where the best water holes are! @Amy- please thank your dad for walking up the tsp. of vanilla. @Anyone reading this: Save your pennies, it will be worth it.

PS Amy knows the best water holes.

Excellent house for a family! The kids LOVED it. The afults loved it! Homeowner Amy is great!

  • 5 of 5

The house was a fine gathering place for our family: grandparents; parents; children. There was ample space for all to have a spot of their own. The yard is huge and was fun for nerf darts and foxtail. A little far from Lake George (30 mins or less) but none of us minded as we had a variety of activities and the drive to wherever we went was pretty. Furniture was so comfortable and commodious. One bathroom ended up zero problem for 9 of us. Amy is a good homeowner and helpful. I highly recommend this wonderful home
