    This place and the owners are great. Anyone that likes to hike, ski, hunt, or fish won't find a better (& less traveled) place in the north country. It's right on the Oswegatchie. We love coming here: clean, quiet, great food and rooms. I can't...More

    We are 4 adults, married couple with 2 adult children. Ideally we would want to bring our dogs. I didn't see any mention of pets so I'm thinking that might not be an option. If possible if the cabin was available for July 30 and any dates around then that would be wonderful--we have a family reunion on that date at Cranberry Lake. Louise Egbert Johnson mentioned you.
