This secluded chalet is located on the Oswegachie River near Oxbow New York on a beautiful private setting overlooking the river. A wonderful location for fishing which includes small mouth bass, northern pike, channel catfish, walleye pike. The chalet is surrounded by lakes such as Black Lake, Moon Lake, Yellow Lake and Perch Lake. The Chalet has a wrap around front and side deck for evening dining or daytime sun bathing.

built in 1997 with bamboo floors throughout. It also has a wood burning fireplace and the bedrooms and

bathroom have skylights. We have two queen beds and two single beds with a futon that can be used for a bed. We have oriental rugs throughout adding to the ambiance of this beautiful chalet. You should feel right at home! The property size is 3.75 acres and has a

gated entry. It is located 2 miles off the main road and is 15 minutes to Gouverneur, 35 minutes to Watertown, 40 minutes to the Canadian Border. Alexandria Bay and Clayton is about 28 miles away where you can take the Thousand Islands tour.

About the Owner

I personally built this chalet after I retired from teaching for 30 years. It was a labor of love aided by location and scenery. My family spent many seasons going to our old camp that was situated on the very spot before I built this beautiful structure on the river.

Peaceful and relaxing vacation getaway

  • 5 of 5
Our family(2 adults and 3 children 17,15 ,11) had a really great time at the vacation house. There was great weather everyday and we spent every moment possible outside. We went fishing, hiking, swimming, boating. It was a really peaceful and quite environment, nothing compared with place where we live(Brooklyn, NY). It's a great getaway from WiFi the noise, a truly relaxing place.(Isaiah32:18) The house was very beautiful on the inside and outside. It was really clean, and exotic looking, and set up with care.(Proverbs24:3-4) The owners were very kind and gave us helpful information on how to get around the town, they even let us borrow their GPS.
We are looking forward to coming back next summer.

Amazing scenery away from it all

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great time at this very spacious, clean, and cozy cottage. This charming cottage has all the amenities one could ask for. We enjoyed the peaceful evenings by the fire listening to the sounds of nature and waking up to the sounds of the birds. The fishing was great, we caught many little fish but saw many huge ones jumping but no luck.. We brought our kayaks and enjoyed paddling for hours as the lake goes many miles out. the scenery was just breathtaking. The place is very secluded but yet not too far from the town of gouverneur where you can find many stores and little restaurants.
Phyllis and Ron were a pleasure to deal with. We are looking forward to going back in the fall to see the foliage.

Excellent and Relaxing Vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
This vacation spot exceeded our expectations! My friends and I absolutely loved it; very relaxing and with all the amenities, we did not have to leave the grounds all week!
We were never bored because there were plenty of outdoor activities: paddleboat, hiking trails and a fire pit for camp fires. This place is definitely a nature lover's dream! We saw many different species of birds and other animals, and if you are a fisherman, you found the right place! All week long, we caught huge catfish (the largest weighing in at 13lbs!), sturgeons, and large and small mouth bass!
Ron and Phyllis were absolutely wonderful and very friendly. Thank you for opening up this gorgeous getaway chalet to us, this vacation was one not to forget.

Total Serenity!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our two boys were looking for the perfect place to close out the summer and spend some quality time together. We had no idea that such a place even existed as the word "perfect" is a tall order!! First of all we were greeted by Ron and his wife who showed us around and made sure we were settled. They couldn't have been nicer and made us feel right at home. We new the place was going to be great from the pictures...but in person, even more stunning! We felt as though we were camping but with all the luxuries of home!You feel as though you are living in a "tree house"! The sounds of nature were unbelievable!! Waking up to that every morning was like "heaven". Absolutely peaceful and serene! The quiet river was awesome and my boys couldn't get out there fast enough to drop thier poles in the water! Fishing is only fun when you catch something and that they certainly did! We also took walks on the trails and took the rowboat and canoe out for several rides! It was a GREAT end to our summer! We couldn't of asked for anything more! Thanks Ron, for sharing your slice of "heaven" with us! We hope to return and make more memories here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. We attempt to make your stay as pleasant as possible. The "fisherman's dream" chalet is just exactly how it is described in our listing. Hopefully we see you again.


From the Owner

Just look at the pictures to appreciate the beauty and serenity the property has to offer, then come on up to this area to appreciate the location. I spent over 50 years fishing and hunting with my sons on the exact location that the chalet now resides.
