This cabin features beautiful cathedral ceilings and has an open main room with a full kitchen, a dining, and living area. There is also a gas fireplace to maintain a cozy atmosphere during colder nights. The over-size windows capture the beauty of the natural surroundings, so the views are stunning, even at night. The separate TV room is for reading or watching Netflix movies, and the desk in front of the window is perfect for those guests who wish to work for a while.
The cabin sits right over the lake with a private waterfront, dock and boathouse. Guests can turn off the lights, turn on the fire, and enjoy the reflection of the moon on the lake. The sight of the fog lifting in the morning is worth the early rise. Four kayaks and a canoe are available in the waterfront boathouse for easy access to Lake Piseco and the outlet. Two sets of snowshoes are provided in winter. An outdoor fire pit, a barbecue grill, and outdoor speakers are for enjoying the warm summer nights while roasting marshmallows, and relaxing under the starry skies. This dreamy cabin is one of the best lakefront rentals in the area.

The cabin sits right over the lake with 500 feet of private waterfront, a dock, and private boathouse. The oversize windows capture the beauty of the natural surroundings, so the views are stunning, even at night. The best is when guests turn on the fire, turn off the lights, and enjoy the reflection of the moon off the lake...just beautiful. The sight of the fog lifting in the morning is worth the early rise.
The accommodation can sleep up to four, but this is the perfect romantic getaway for two—a great destination for couch potatoes and adventurers alike. There is no need to leave the comfort of the sofa to experience the beauty of the local wilderness, and those who do venture out have plenty of hiking, kayaking, swimming, exploring, skiing, snowshoe, and snowmobile opportunities. The hosts supply local guidebooks and restaurant recommendations.
The open floor plan with cathedral ceilings creates a spacious, airy main room with kitchen, dining and living area, with an easy-to-turn-on gas fireplace. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen-size bed and one with a double bed. A separate TV room is for watching movies, reading, or enjoying that mid-afternoon nap. There are also great lake views from this sweet little room.
Other amenities include an outdoor fire pit, a Weber barbecue, Wi-Fi, a 40-inch flat-screen television for DVDs and Netflix (no cable), a landline phone (no cell service here), a desk for working, and a fabulous Sonos Stereo system with indoor and outdoor speakers.
The hosts supply two sets of adult snowshoes and one child pair in the winter. An all-wheel-drive vehicle is necessary to navigate the snowy dirt driveway in winter. It is plowed regularly but can be tricky in icy weather. The other option is to leave the car at the end of the driveway and walk in (rarely necessary).
In spring and summer, the host provides four kayaks, one two-person canoe, and adult life preservers.
This is a great home for self-reliant, independent travelers looking for a very comfortable, private, and pristine accommodation in a unique and special spot. Piseco and the surrounding area are beautiful but have limited entertainment venues other than nature hikes, mountains, wildlife, lakes, and rivers.

Whether guests are seeking an outdoor adventure or a relaxing nature retreat, there are plenty of recreational and leisure activities in the area. Guests will definitely want to take advantage of the lake right at their doorstep, and they will enjoy their own slice of private waterfront to enjoy kayaking and canoeing. There are also numerous hiking trails nearby that are great for hikers of any level. During the winter, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are very popular, and the nearest opportunity for skiing is Oak Mountain, which is only 15 miles away. The many trails also provide great snow mobile tracks for those who wish to zoom around the area.

Rates vary depending on the time of year, the length of the stay, and the day of the week. Rates are based on double occupancy, and there is a $10 fee per additional guest, per night. There is a maximum of four guests at this location at any time.
Guests are recommended to bring a four-wheel drive vehicle during the winter. Smoking, pets, and parties are prohibited.
The housekeeper works Monday and/or Friday here, so arrival and departure dates must be on a Monday or Friday.
Occasional exceptions can be made during November through April, so glampers should please inquire if Monday and Friday do not work for them.
Similar to camping, this cabin is a "leave no trace" home. Guests must agree to take out what they bring in, this includes recyclables. A small amount (less than one bag) may be left for the housekeeper to take to the dump, but she simply cannot do this if a lot are left or if a mess, so guests are asked to keep this in mind when selecting this home and doing their shopping.
The property does have a garbage pick-up service, but they will not take recyclables.
Guests should note that there is a small bridge nearby that separates the outlet from Piseco Lake, and they can hear the cars going over the bridge when outside (but not while inside), which is the only thing the hosts wish was different. Guests must agree to follow the accommodation's rules and the town's strict recycling rules, which will be emailed prior to arrival.
IMPORTANT: The housekeeper has set aside her Monday and Friday for the accommodation, so arrivals and departures must be on one of these days. November through April, there may be more flexibility, and guests can inquire with the hosts.
