About Toni

This log cabin was built by my parents and has been our summer home since 1960. We lived on Long Island during the year and summered in this cabin for many years. There have been many lobster feeds, great fishing, engagements, honeymoons, friends stopping in on the way to Canada and those staying to enjoy nature from the porch and lake. There are many stories about the large hand built field stone fireplace, cabin's history, quiet talks on the screened in porches, all while raising my family, enjoying friends, and wonderful guests .

Toni purchased this cottage in 1960

What makes this cottage unique

You just can't find this anymore! Wildlife and the amenities of a lovely lake log home all in one package. Wake up to a beautiful view out the Master Bdrm with loons, early sunrise, and coffee on the deck. Canoe, kayak, paddle or motor for hours without seeing another boat. Enjoy a wonderful time of serenity, water, screened porches,and cabin life with friends, family, each other or time for yourself.

This place is amazing! My partner and I stay here this past summer and last fall, and the cabin is the perfect place to relax. We swam in the lake and hung out by the fire... plus there are kayaks and a canoe!! So much fun. Recommend highly.
