Description

A charming, cozy log cabin sleeping 7+ awaits you in idyllic setting on a peaceful cove at scenic Allen Falls Flow (lake). Every room, glowing with hand crafted cedar, beautifully appointed, oozes warmth and charm, from the spacious living area with vaulted ceilings and Vermont Castings wood stove, to the master and upstairs bedrooms and sleeping porch. A large wooden deck is a perfect platform for sunning, swimming, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking, complete with a built-in fire-pit for bonfires at the water’s edge. There is a nice, sandy swimming area, ideal for the kids to wade in. The fishing is great and the lake and connecting river make for fun outings in the canoe, paddleboat and motorboat that are provided.

Just a short distance from the the high peaks region as well as the University cities of Potsdam and Canton, there’s a lot to do for all interests from mountain climbing, hiking, and white water rafting, to museums and live theatre. A great spot for vacations or weekend get-aways

High-speed Internet connectivity is available with a Wi-Fi connection.

Charming Adirondack Log Cabin with Great Waterfront and Scenic Views
Peaceful and Relaxing Off of the Grid

My family (two boys 8 and 12, and my mother and I) had a terrific vacation from sunrises to sunsets to brilliantly starry night skies. There was always something to do, whether on the lake/flow, in the river, or just sitting and reading a good book on one of the porches or having a fire for s'mores by the lake. We fished, swam, kayaked, canoed, floated and boated. We also explored the area (with the help of a sister who lives in a neighboring town) and found several great swimming holes, beaches (Higley State Park and Parishville park) and hikes (Stone Valley trail) close by. We were also able to easily get to the Wild Center in Tupper lake, or the Six Nation Indian Museum (Closed Mondays) in Onchiota for a half day trip. While you could do 'big shopping' in Potsdam we found several terrific small stores (Chips Place (hanawa falls) and Lamphere's) and farm stands (Adirondack Growers) close by. This part of NY is such a wonderful mix of the Adirondacks and the St Lawrence valley farm land. We all came home refreshed and renewed having felt we truly had a great vacation!

Awesome place to stay

We arrived late on Saturday so it was a little hard to locate in the dark but when we found our way it was all we had hoped for. My wife, three teenagers and myself had a great time at the lake. We fished, boated and just enjoyed the view. In the evenings we spent a lot of time playing family games. We took a day trip to Alexandria bay and went on a tour of Singer and Boldt Castles. The cabin was very well maintained and the yard was great. If you are looking for a quiet getaway this is the place.

Our Last Day at Allen Falls Flow

August 26, 2011

What a beautiful day! We woke up knowing that it would be our last full day of vacation and wanted to make the most of it. The sun and rain were intermittent but that didn't stop us from soaking in the lake view coffee in hand while we made our plans. I decided to take a ride up the road in order to get a signal on the I-Phone and research directions to Allen Falls. We had already spent a day hiking and swimming in Stone Valley and that was a delightful jaunt but all the reviews said "don't miss Allen Falls" so I was determined to find it. When I arrived back at the house my 22 and 25 year old sons were ready for an adventure so we decided to stop at the Birchbark Bookstore before heading over to Allen Falls. So off we went with the smell of rhubarb pie (made with fresh rhubarb from the garden) still in our memories and on our taste buds. The bookstore was filled with volumes of books on every subject. At checkout we asked the owners for directions to Allen Falls because I never did find them on the Internet. They were a few miles from the bookstore on the other side of 72. We parked after the bridge on Allen Falls Road and made our way downstream. As soon as we arrived at the falls we were wishing we had brought our bathing suits because by then the sun was shining and the water looked so inviting. When we arrived back home, my husband and son made a few final casts off the dock with bait purchased from Kunoko and a license from Walmart. We cooked up the last of our hotdogs on the grill and my dear husband took me for a final canoe ride around the lake while the boys cleaned up the dishes. As I read my book on the upstairs porch and watched the sunset behind the trees, I felt so grateful for our week at this lovely cabin in Parishville, NY.

Great Cabin away from it all

We stayed at the log cabin during the 4th of July week and it looked exactly like the photos online. It was beautiful, clean and cozy. The lake is lovely and serene. It was convenient having the canoe and paddle boat. The kids enjoyed themselves in the outdoors.

A negative and/or confusion based on the website would be the amount of beds. It says online that it sleeps 9 (although it also said sleeps 7 which would be more appropriate). There were 2 full beds (could fit 4 people on), 2 twin beds. The trundle bed did not have a mattress on it, but luckily we only had 6 people with us. They did have two cots, but we felt that doesn't really count as a bed.

Another "very minor" issue was that the website stated that there was dial-up internet access, but that didn't work due to login/password issues (although the owners did say they would come and fix it). We actually liked the disconnect anyway.

We did the hike nearby to Allen Flows Fall. It is worth going there, since it's only a 5 minute drive. Another thing that was a nice surprise was the 2nd floor porch. It was screened-in with a ceiling fan, and allowed us to enjoy the outdoors with out the bugs! I did a lot of fishing off the dock with my two small boys which was great (small perch and crappie).

There also was also no sandy swimming area on the property as far as we could determine, but the lake was swimable. The firepit was great for lake campfires and roasting marshmallows.

Places visited: Potsdam for movie and groceries, Bold Castle (1 1/2 hours from cabin- took boat out of Shemmerhorn Marina- kids liked it), and Lake Placid.

All in all this was a nice cabin on a small lake that allows for rest and relaxation. There are not a lot of tourist attractions nearby so don't expect that. As the listing states- it is good for getting away from it all and we recommend the rental for others. We did do some price comparisons with a few other lake/river rentals in the area and did find that our cabin was at the high end of the range (although we felt it was worth it because it was a great log cabin).
