Cabin may also be rented for the season as a summer place, a hunting/fishing camp (for individuals only, not clubs), or a cross-country ski lodge.
RATES: Base rate $50/night Mon-Thurs; weekend rate $60/night. Winter rate of $56/night applies November-April; snow will be cleared from driveway for your arrival, with optional additional snow-plowing available upon request for $22.
"Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints."
The area is rural; wooded hills along the north shore of Oneida Lake (the "thumb" of the Finger Lakes) are the beginning of the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains. Some small towns provide basic shopping needs (groceries & gas). Sylvan Beach near the east end of the lake is a small beach resort town with several restaurants. The main attraction of the cabin is the quiet forest setting, with marked walking trails, a beaver meadow, bright starry nights and cozy wood stove.
