Home was clean, welcoming, and had all amenities you could ever need. Owner responded quickly to all correspondence. Would highly recommend it! Close to Alexandria Bay and Clayton, lots to do. Highly recommend John Evans boat charter.

Lovely property. House is surrounded by other homes, but you can't hear your neighbors. It was very quiet and peaceful! Property is about a 15 minute drive to Alexandria Bay and all the local tourist attractions. We most enjoyed mornings drinking our coffee on the porch and the evenings with the beautiful sky in front of us. We will be back!

This is the 2nd year we rented the Big Dipper and once again we had a wonderful and relaxing time! We love this cottage as we feel like we are in the middle of the wilderness! It is so beautiful and quite. The birds and owls and all of the wildlife is just amazing. We also enjoy being close to Alex Bay and all of the great restaurants and activity. Singer Castle is so cool, you really need to check it out. We will return, we just love it! Thanks again Steve!!

Another great stay!

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at the Big Dipper many times and enjoy it every year! It's close to all the tourist things yet it's tucked up in the trees so you feel like you're the only ones in town! Nice, clean cottage and wildlife all around you. Very friendly chipmunks! Have already reserved our week for next year.

Enjoyable and relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

It was so nice to come back again and stay here a second time. Got greatest time of relaxing and enjoying private stay and stunning views.

Got four- big pike and many Bass fishes, perches, sun fishes....

One day drive to Monreal, Canada and take a Bus Tour - thats worth it!

Of course will stay here again in next year!!! :-)
