About Doris Meyers
I am a retired teacher living in Miami, Fl. I grew up in Oklahoma on a farm. We moved into town when I was in Middle school. After high school, I attended East Central State ) in Ada, Oklahoma and upon graduation I came to Florida to teach. I have only one daughter and 4 grandchildren, all living in FL., so I will probably remain in FL
Doris Meyers purchased this Cabin in 2003
Why Doris Meyers chose Glenfield
I fell in love with Up-State NY, when I came for a visit in 2003. I loved the tall pines and the slope of the land that when down to the river, and I loved the cool summers. I wanted my grandchildren to be able to leave city life and experience nature in this wonderful rural setting. I purchased the land, and began building the next year. It took 13 years to complete this house although I received my "Letter of Occupancy" in 2010. Custom made; There is no other like it!
What makes this Cabin unique
Chairs can also be placed on the deck or down by the river, (900 ft.) of waterfront. The living/dining/kitchen areas all have great views of the river through 2 sets of glass-sliding doors, but you will find that every window through out the cabin will have unique views. You may wake and look out to see a deer or wild turkeys.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the Independence river. Doris is an excellent hostess and very responsive. We would stay here again and would highly recommend it! Thanks Doris.
Thank you Jim. It was a pleasure having you and your family. Hope to see you again next year. Best wishes.
Comfortable, clean, relaxing!
Doris, the owner was very accommodating and welcoming. There were a couple minor things the first day but she took care of them immediately. She genuinely wanted us to have a fabulous vacation. The sound of the river was relaxing. The addition of the two hammocks, ping pong table, and the fire pit was icing on the cake!
The only thing I would warn is ask about driveway access. The house is in a remote area and the driveway was tough to navigate with a 2-wheel drive truck (it had rained quite a bit the weeks prior to our arrival). I recommend a 4x4. She did say she was getting some work done on the driveway--so this problem may be resolved.
The river didn't yield any fish for our family, but we are not experts. The current was pretty strong. My kids are teenagers (14 & 19). I wouldn't recommend this spot for little kids only because the dangers of the fast moving river.
Overall, this home is the perfect spot to UNPLUG and relax. It's location is remote, but there's a general store a couple miles away for tackle, ice, and other stuff. There's also an Amish butcher shop close.
One other important point--spotless. The house was very clean.
I would recommend this house to a friend.
Normally the river is much lower & slower moving as shown in the pictures. However it rained everyday for weeks so the river was higher than usual and the road was very muddy in spots, which will be resolved this week with new gravel. Thank you Wendy & your family. You were great guests and left the property spotless.
A True Gem. Scenic, Peaceful, Well Maintained.
We have had the pleasure of visiting this unique property many times. The home is clean, comfortable and offers lovely views of the pristine Independence River. The riverfront is one of the nicest spots along the waterway.
Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure having you.
