Come, sit back, disconnect and relax in our unique cabin in the Adirondack Park. Our 97 year old cabin comfortably sleeps six. There are two small private bedrooms: one with a queen and the second with a full bed. The third room is open to the living room and features a bunk bed. Linens, blankets and towels are provided. The kitchen is well stocked with cookware, a full sized stove, refrigerator, microwave and farmhouse sink with hot and cold running water. The bathroom has a flush toilet, sink and tub with handheld shower. There is a pellet stove (pellets provided) in our kitchen/dining area and a wood stove (wood for the stove available when reserving) in the living room. One bedroom (queen) has thermostat controlled electric heat and the other (full) has a portable electric space heater.

The cabin is a true escape: no internet, no telephone and no cell service. There is electricity if you need to recharge a device and there is a Yamaha/Polk sound system to Bluetooth your tunes.

Built by Dr. James Cormier in 1924, our cabin became a summer getaway for his family. He was also an artist and his original watercolors still adorn its walls. We are only the third owners in nearly 100 years and we have been building cherished memories there for decades. We have made improvements to the property while retaining its charm. There is one P/T neighbor who shares our driveway but the property provides privacy.

We are adjacent to a NYS Forest Preserve and surrounded by woods. The cabin is a short drive from Lake Placid and Saranac Lake and close to hiking the Adirondacks, canoeing in the St. Regis Canoe Area, close to the Six Nations Indian Museum and an easy drive to the Visitors Interpretive Center at Paul Smith’s College. For the water and fishing enthusiast a 3 minute drive or 10 minute walk brings you to the North Branch of the Saranac River, Rainbow Lake and Lake Kushaqua. Local fishing, and hunting opportunities abound. The cabin’s location also offers history buffs a chance to explore the impact of tuberculosis sanatoriums which served patients from the big cities in the early 20th century. Sites are available to explore within walking distance and a small museum in Saranac Lake is worth the trip. Lastly, there is a cool antique store within a few miles whose owner is always available for conversation about the area.

After a day of ADK fun, you can kick back around the fire ring (outdoor burning wood supplied) and take in the stars. If the weather isn't cooperating, stay in with a good book, play some card/board games or just spend some uninterrupted time with people you care about. 

Please let us know if we can answer any questions or provide something special to make your stay even better.

Our family enjoyed the time we spent at the cottage immensely. The kitchen table was perfect for games and we liked being able to play our music throughout the house with the Bluetooth enabled speaker system. The place was neat and tidy, with absolutely everything you might need. Plenty of pillows, blankets, cookware, books, etc. The wood and pellet stoves kept the whole place toasty. We were happy to be able to bring our dog along as well. It was a beautiful location and we hope to go back.

This beautiful cottage nestled in the Adirondacks is full of rustic charm. Clean and well maintained, the wood and pellet stove kept everything toasty despite the threat of snow. The cabin is bright and full of sunshine due to it’s many windows and skylights, which wonderfully illuminates all that there is to look at. The house is adorned with art and antiques, not to mention the beautiful handcrafted touches from when it was built. There are plenty of fresh linens & the beds were quite comfortable. The kitchen contains all you might need and then some. We also enjoyed the screened in porch with swing. This cabin is a gem, it’s far enough out to be secluded, but easily accessible. (The road in is embedded with rocks, but it’s easily managed by going slow.) Our family had a wonderful visit and hope to go back in the future.

This was just the right cabin for us. It was comfortable with everything we needed for our stay. It got pretty chilly the nights we were there but the pellet stove and wood stove kept the place warm. The electric heat in the bedroom was a plus. It was also a cool looking place and close to everything we wanted to do in the Adirondacks.
