CONS OF RENTING AN ISLAND: Being on a private Island also limits some luxuries most will find in Urban living. You will not be living in an upscale luxury building with high pressure showers and White Hotel Linenes. If you are looking for a luxury vacation this will not be an ideal location for you. You will be disappointed. You may have to use commons sense and have some skill with driving and docking a boat properly. You may also have to ask us for things that may not be readiliy available to the eye when you arrive. If you need something and dont see it you may have to ask us for it. Some boats are not always docked where you can see them on arrival. We have had guest complain about not havng things like hammocks, canoes as advertised after their stay was over when they were readily available but never asked about. If you are not mechanically inclined at all and know how to do thing like pull a choke on an engine to start it this is not the place for you. If you expect an achor on the pontoon boat so that you can fish and not drift at all due to the breeze you might not be happy here. With large groups of people renting anyplace there is the chance that something may break down. We will do anything humanly possible to fix any problems as they occur as soon as possible. If you leave the cottage not as clean as when you arrived you will be charged a cleaning fee. We are usually quite lenient with this so if we charge you then the place was definitely not cleaned well. We have 2 hours to get the cottage ready before the next renters on weekends and if its not properly clean it is stressful getting it ready and we will charge you for cleaning.
There are pros and cons of being on a private island. The septic tank on the island is delicate and will require care to not overload it to minimize any potential problems and to ensure it continues to function properly. This includes minimizing the toilet paper being flushed unless necessary. If your group will need to flushing a roll of toilet paper down the toilet each day just to go potty this will not be the place for you. You will also have to carry your garbage off the island and deposit in a dumpster on the mainland.
Available for weekly or extended period rentals is the cottage on the
West side of the Island. The East side cottage is home to the owner
and manager of the property. Complete Island rental packages are
available by special request.
The Island cottage is on Grant Island which sits nicely in the middle
of Brantingham Lake. Brantingham Lake has a 15 mile circumference
and is located 45 minutes north of Utica via rt 12. Located 2 hrs from
Albany and 4.5 - 5.5 hrs from NYC depending on traffic.
On weekends the lake is lively with plenty of boating and water sports
and on weekdays it is usually very quiet and peaceful.
The island is approximately 2 acres and has 2 cottages. We rent both
cottages at special request but normally rent only one. The other
cottage is for management. There is usually only one other person on
the island to make sure that things are running smoothly, to help you
with anything and to answer any questions you may have.
Management has two small dogs on the island. Both are very friendly and lovable but if you prefer not to see them they are kept away.
These cottages are located in the Adirondack park about 45 minutes
north of Utica NY.
See our website for more info. GrantIsland com.
There is great fishing on the lake. Large mouth Bass, Pickerel,
Bullhead, Whitefish and much more, so bring your poles. Some of the
best fishing in the lake is right off the Dock. You don't even have
to go out in a boat if you dont want.
There are thousands of miles of Bike and ATV trails on the mainland so
if you like riding you can bring your 4 wheelers, Snowmobiles or
mountain bikes. In the winter time people come to the area just for
the trails. There are 4 restaurants within 1 mile of your parking area
to eat at and plenty of busy bars to go to at night which on weekends
host live bands.
