Blue Heron Boathouse Cabins - Sundown

Property type cabin

Overview

About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, 6 Sleeps

Wake to the sound of water lapping against the docks. Watch the ducks parade by your deck every morning and evening. Hear the loons call and see the herons float by. The fish jump as you enjoy the sunset. Rent a boathouse right on the water on the East Shore of Bonaparte, a crystal clear lake on the western edge of the Adirondacks. (Named after Joseph Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon and once King of Spain who fled to America and had a refuge right on the lake.)

Two boathouses, side by side, offer comfortable living quarters over the water. (Look for "Blue Heron Boathouse Cabins - Waterloo" on this site to see the other one.) With fully equipped kitchens and modern baths, you can enjoy the comforts of home while you have easy access to a sandy swimming area, to a canoe for exploring the lake, and a family recreation area lighted at night. With picnic tables, swings, a sand box, playhouse, horseshoe pit and fire ring, there is something for all ages.

These are seasonal cottages. We rent them from May 15 - October 31.

Our family loves the boathouses. We go every year.

  • 5 of 5

I love how there is something for everyone to do. My daughter loves reading & sleeping in the loft and playing with the neighbor's cat. My husband loves sunning on the deck, fishing and biking, and I love swimming out to the little island for exercise. We love eating out on the deck too. It's all so relaxing! And they have cell reception too, even out in the woods like that. We go back every year in August and certainly would recommend it to others.

The description of the rental property was accurate. There was plenty of room for family of four. In addition, there was a loft with 2 beds. The house was clean and well kept. The view from the back deck was awesome. A very relaxing place.
