Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you for such a positive review. The Kirk family is an example of the wonderful people that have stayed at our cottage. We thoroughly enjoyed watching them as they interacted as a family. The boys were extremely respectful and were a pleasure to watch them play in the water. We have a lot of couples as guests so having the boys was an added pleasure. We would certainly welcome them back.
We enjoyed our stay! The cottage was clean and comfortable. Tom and Cookie were thoughtful hosts. Take the kayaks out with life vests provided. Bring your water shoes!
The country store north on route 30 is about a five-minute walk. For groceries and produce we went to Tops and JF Farm Store (produce) in Northville - about 20 minutes away.
Check out Auger Falls, a short drive north, and the Sacandaga River, a short drive south. Both within 15 minutes.
Overall it was a relaxing retreat!

The house is very clean and well furnished. The owners were very friendly and we greatly enjoyed our stay even though it rained quite a bit while we were there.
Coming from the city, I recharged my batteries with the beautiful fall colors, kayak rides on the calm lake. We plan to visit again.

The cabin was amazingly beautiful and so cozy!! We love the outdoors and so all the outdoorsy decor was just perfect. The view out the windows and while sitting on the deck was just amazing!! Thank you for such a beautiful place to stay in and all the comforts of home within its walls. We would definitely like to return again someday!!

We had a short but wonderful stay at Cookie and Tom’s cottage. We took advantage of all of the amenities: used the nicely stocked kitchen for breakfasts, grilled burgers our first night, sat out on all of the available seating (swing, deck, and waterside with coffee), appreciated lots of towels in the bathroom, used the tv and fireplace in the evenings, and, most importantly, had a triumphant kayak adventure!

We enjoyed a fabulous long weekend on the lake! Nearby cute towns & hiking trails galore. At cabin entrance a nice sized porch with super comfortable seating & room for more. Wow! a peaceful space with beautiful mountain and woodsy pine trees views. We loved it and used it often. The entire cabin can be described as having several sweet, comfortable spaces throughout. In back an open lakeview deck with table & 4 chairs & room for more. Super comfortable to enjoy the surrounding trees and lakefront & perfect for us for mornings with coffee, newspapers and crosswords. A few short steps or easy walk down a small incline to the lake. Fabulous long rectangular lakefront space with a table & lots of seating and layout chairs & plenty of space for more to hang out, walk into the water or jump off the nice long dock & swim to the swimming platform. There are 2 sit-in kayaks and easy put in into the water which has a shoreline to step into off the dock and also shallow surrounding area. We also enjoyed sitting lakefront with a good book or conversation and just hanging out relaxing for hours, just perfect. Hubby loved fishing right off the pier. Between the back deck and the lakefront there are additional seating areas - a sweet fire pit with 2 Adirondack chairs, plus a great large wooden swing seat & a propane bbq grill. The whole space was just perfect. Inside was spotless. Clean as a whistle and super comfortable too. Well constructed, decorated and feels new, open and spacious. Choice of DirectTV, or, Roku streaming using our own logins/services. The kitchen area and TV area are all one large, open, comfortable room. Modern kitchen with both Keurig & regular coffeemaker & an adjacent comfortable medium sized table & chairs & a large window facing the lake & a door to access the outdoor deck. The TV area has 2 sofas & there is a separate bedroom with slider door access to the lake facing deck & a very comfortable Queen sized bed. Another separate room with a long modern bathroom with shower & excellent water pressure. I cannot say enough good things about Tom & Cookie and their fabulous cabin. Amiable, super nice & excellent to talk who also gave us our privacy, exclusive use of the cabin, amenities & entire lakefront. 'We'll be back' is the highest compliment I can pay and you can bet we will be!!! Yay for fabulous homeowners who share their treelined, woodsy, soul nourishing lakeside spaces! Thank you!
