We loved staying in the Sugar Shack! Heather is a great host and makes sure everything is set up for an easy check in. The Sugar Shack is near two other cabins and shares an outdoor fire pit with one of them, but you'll still feel like you have plenty of space. There's a lovely outdoor screen porch you can access from inside the cabin - it faces the creek and has a privacy screen and its own little gas fire pit table. Inside the cabin there are tons of windows to let the breeze flow through. Fully equipped kitchen, comfy couches, and a nice loft bed upstairs. The property is a cool ranch with plenty of animal friends. The nearby swimming hole provides a great chance to cool off. Bring bug spray if you're in the warmer months. We'd come back here any time!

Heather and her family gave us an amazing experience. They were so kind and accommodating. The Sugar Shack was beautiful and comfortable; you could hear the flowing creek water outside which was a bonus.
The screened-in porch was awesome, no bugs and a private fireplace powered by propane. The cabin was a perfect amount of space and felt like home. There were great hiking trails within walking distance, as well as Big Otter Lake and Shingle Mill Falls (beautiful). Many other places within driving distance.
Overall we had an amazing experience and would love to return. Definitely would recommend to anybody looking to explore the Adirondacks who would like a comfortable place to come back to.
Thank you Heather and family!!

Okay, let me just say: The Sugarshack SLAPS. I can't recommend it highly enough. It is super well maintained and has everything you need. The screened in porch was such a peaceful place to hang out. We liked it so much we set up an air mattress on it and had the best nights sleep listening to the babbling brook behind the cabin. (The lofted bed is also super comfy) The swimming hole is a refreshing way to wake yourself up in the morning or cool off after a hike. The stream has a lot of great rocks for sunbathing, and there are chonky little frogs everywhere you look -- it's the BEST. Heather was such a kind and gracious host, and on more than one occasion went out of her way to make sure we were having a perfect stay. She even gave us a tour of the stables and introduced us to her horses, which was super nice of her.

Long story short, we didn't want to leave and can't wait to go back.

Such an amazing cabin! Much bigger than we thought it would be, super clean and very new. Overall a very spacious and calming atmosphere, with the sounds of the river right beside you! This property also backs on to some really nice hiking trails, which were really nice to walk.

We had an amazing weekend at Sugar Shack! The cabin is beautiful and directly above Otter Creek--it was so peaceful and relaxing to hear the water right outside all night, and to sit on the porch with the firepit and enjoy it through the screens. We appreciate the dog-friendliness, and love that there were so many trails close to the cabin. We hope to return many times in the future, and I also am planning to come back with my horse to explore the trails that way sometime soon!
