Perfect Fall Getaway!

We had an amazing time at Sunset Cottage. Being parents of teens and young adults, we make it a priority to get away at least every fall together for time to connect away from all the busyness. We usually like to try a new place every year, although we enjoyed the cottage and location so much we would stay again! We kayaked, hiked, spent time in the hot tub, enjoyed sitting on the deck (especially at sunset). We had a fire outside and used the fireplace inside a few times as the temps were getting cooler. The propane heater worked well to heat the room up in the morning. Foliage was at its peak and we were so thankful to be able to get out and enjoy it. We hiked to the Crescent Lake overlook and along the waterfall spots off of Tooley Pond Road. Even on a rainy day it was wonderful to sit and read by the fire, overlooking the lake through all of the windows. Donna and John have thought of everything and are wonderful hosts! Donna was easy to communicate with and would respond promptly. Thank you, Donna and John, for creating such a wonderful respite in an idyllic location!

Great stay

Don't drive all the way down the driveway unless you have 4x4 or awd. Walk down and enjoy your stay at this beautiful sunset getaway.

Tranquility on Trout Lake

This was our 9th stay on Trout Lake, 6th time at Sunset Cottage, 3 times at it's sister cottage, Loon Song. Both are incredible, and Donna & John are gracious hosts and wonderful people.
At Sunset Cottage the atmosphere is relaxing, and you just can't beat the views of the lake, especially at sundown. It's not called Sunset Cottage for nothing.
The cottage is total Adirondack charm. I've read some other reviews about the cottage not being clean and such. Let me say that we've never had an issue with this. Ever. If one wants a 5 star getaway, then book a 5 star hotel. This is 5 Star Adirondack style! Huge hot tub, new kyacks, bountiful wood for campfires and indoor fireplace. Large, comfortable leather sofa's & chairs. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. And don't fear the outdoor sleeping porch! It may get chilly at night, but the sound of the waves gently crashing on shore is so soothing.
Also there are 2 stores well within driving distance if provisions are needed. There's a small corner store a few miles away in Edwards, and a good size Price Chopper in Gouveneur, NY, about a 12 min ride. We usually purchase our perishables there so we don't have to pack.
Of course I highly recommend Sunset Cottage, after 9 years on Trout lake I wouldn't go anywhere else.
Thanks you again Donna & John...and the bottle of wine is always appreciated and a classy touch!

Very attentive, willing to answer whenever we had a question. Other than the weather which they had no control over our stay at Sunset Cottage was amazing! We got married had many family and friends with out a problem. I would rent again in a heartbeat. So quiet and tranquil. Had everything we needed and the cottage is beautiful!

lovely cottage with incredible lake views

our stay at sunset cottage was absolutely wonderful and we would definitely recommend and stay here again. many activities for children and adults, and so many spots to relax and enjoy the surroundings. house is very well appointed and we appreciated things like the hot tub, fans in each bedroom, small pontoon boat and kayaks, cooking amenities in the kitchen, and washer/dryer with detergents and dryer sheets.
when we had an issue with the clothes dryer not working, the owners got someone out to fix it immediately - incredible service!
a couple things could use some tlc...the stairs into the lake, aging parts of the decks, aging kayaks (totally functional but worn), and the shower head in the only shower is too large to really function. that being said, we wouldnt hesitate to stay here again because the positives outweighed any negatives. and the lake....omg its the most beautiful!!!

The view was beautiful and the inside was very cute.

We had a great time ! The inside was very cute. I was worried about the wood situation and a fan but there was plenty of wood for the fire pit, fans inside and it had a nice grill with extra propane tanks. We were able to launch our boat at someones private launch they were very helpful and polite. We gave them a "donation " for letti g us use it and he let us keep the boat trailer on his property for the weekend. It came with more than I expected. It was like camping in luxury. If you dont mind being in the middle of nowhere this is your place. The neighbors were very polite and told us to enjoy it and we did.
Things we didnt like. The driveway was very steep. The flies were out of control in the morning. It was tough having 1 bathroom for 9 people. The shower was really small but it did the job. The deck is huge but could use a pressure wash and some paint. The door was a little tough to open and close but we never bothered to lock it day or night. All the ladies said they would definitely come back.

Tranquility on the water

Tranquil spot on Trout Lake. Loved the sleeping porch! Plenty to do on the water and hanging around the house. Very relaxing. We all hated to go back to reality.

Amazing Lake House

The kids loved swimming off the dock, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing and cruising around the lake on the pontoon boat. The view from the hot tub is breath taking. The house was very comfortable and the kids really liked the sleeping porch. Camp fires at night capped off perfect days on the lake. The house and all the amenities included made for a great family vacation. We just wish we could have stayed longer.
