Brooklyn, New York

Relaxing getaway from the city

  • 5 of 5

After a brutally hot and noisy summer in the city It was so nice to get away and enjoy this peaceful cabin. When my wife and I arrived we immediately knew we had made the right decision. There were fresh cut flowers on the porch and in the dining area, there's an awesome hammock overlooking the water, and a nice dock to sit with your feet in the water.

There are a canoe and kayaks available. Paddling on this part of the hudson is more like paddling on a lake than a river. However I found it's a bit easier to paddle near the far shore as there's not as much wind and the current is slower. It also keeps you out of the path of the wave-runners and motorboats which will occasionally speed through. Be aware that hauling the canoe from the rack to the water can prove difficult for some. I recommend two people for this exercise.

Queensberry, NY is about a 20-30 minute drive from the cabin and they have everything you might want. There's a Hanaford, and walmart, etc.. There's also a gift shop worth stopping at called "Back Home Styles For Living Country Store"

The nights at the cabin are very quiet and peaceful. I slept like a log every night.

The biting insects at this time of year were virtually non existent. I think I saw maybe 3 mosquitos the entire week.

All in all it was a great week and a great place to stay.

Thanks so much!

Quaint and quiet with absolutely beautiful views of the Hudson.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at the Cozy Camp. The house was stocked with all the essentials and I enjoyed all the antiques and other decor around the house. Our favorite items were the wooden tic-tac-toe game and the bear toilet paper dispenser. Having coffee in the morning and a glass of wine (gracious left for us by Colleen and John)at sunset overlooking the water was spectacular. The location was perfect for us. Far enough to provide a peaceful retreat, but close enough to Lake George, Glens Falls, and Queensbury for some our daily outings. We encourage you to rent this property without hesitating. It was perfect for our family of 4.

It's a much loved property and every nook has a story

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at lake Luzerne the property could not have been more perfect for our family. Coleen & John made our stay very personal by leaving wine and a gift for our girls and also beautiful flowers. The local people we met were very pleasant and very helpful.If you are looking for a place by the water that is quiet but close by plenty of activity here is the place. We highly recommend this property and hope to be back soon. Brendan & Aine

Beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

The house is very nice and comfortable and the view is beautiful and magic. We forgot some children clothes in the house and the landlords mailed them to us without asking us anything, this was extremely nice from them.

Just Right

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier...the cottage/camp was as advertised, and perfect for us. Coleen and John have a very relaxing and quiet getaway spot, and everything was organized and ready. I enjoyed fishing off the dock, playing golf and puttsing about in the canoe with my wife on our 53rd wedding anniversary...She enjoyed the hammock and relaxation! We loved this wonderful rustic camp with its gorgeous views and comforts right on the water!

Thanks so very much!!!

Pictures can't do it justice

  • 5 of 5

This house and landscape is so beautiful none of the pictures posted can do it justice. We spent five days here and coming from the hustle and bustle of Brooklyn everyday this camp was exactly what we needed. My wife and I had made plans of things to do and see while we were up in the Adirondacks. Suffice to say we nixed most of the plans and just laid by the river and read our books. The camp owners clearly have invested so much heart and soul in to the ambience and decor of this property. There hospitality was also very warming. We loved every minute of the time we spent here. We will be back. Thank you Colleen and John!!!
