Please also note that Robin's Nest is not on the water. It is a short walk (approximately 100 steps) to West Caroga Lake, where we share a small private beach with our neighbors. Robin's Nest is located in the sleepy, rustic town of Caroga Lake on a quiet street with friendly neighbors.
Robin’s Nest Named is named after its first inhabitants – a momma robin and her babies nesting in the roof’s rafters during the initial phase of the remodel . It is a gorgeous year-round cabin in the Southern Adirondacks. This architectural gem was recently lovingly restored with an eye toward preserving its old country charm, while furnishing it with all the benefits and comforts of modern day amenities.
Robin’s Nest features a great room, pool table, bar, wine fridge, a spacious patio, large yard. A couple of minute's walk away will bring you to a shared sandy beach with a dock on West Caroga Lake. It sleeps 8 people comfortably in three charming bedrooms.
Completely renovated from the ground up, Robin’s Nest is equipped with all new electrical and plumping systems, high speed, wireless internet, a 50 inch flat screen TV downstairs and a flat screen TV in the Master, and state of the art, stainless steel appliances in its gourmet kitchen.
Its detailed woodwork includes handcrafted, built-in shelving and drawers, hand-laid pine walls and gun smoke hickory and acacia hardwood flooring throughout, along with a cast iron and wood banister railing for the wooden staircase. Oversized sliding glass doors provide easy access to the side and back yards and patios. When combined with contemporary window walls in the Great Room and multi-paned windows and high ceilings throughout the house, plenty of light floods and warms the house.
The Great Room alone has a multitude of windows. Gorgeous copper fans hang from the “cathedral” ceilings in the Great Room and high-powered ceiling fans hang in each bedroom, while cast iron gas stoves in the Great Room and breakfast nook provide an abundance of warmth and comfort during the cold, winter months.
The private, largely fenced in back yard offers two, wooden picnic tables, a gas grill and outdoor fire pit. Adirondack chairs offer places to relax, share stories and gaze at the night sky and stars. Native trees and plants, including crab apple trees, a black raspberry and a blueberry patch make up the landscape and a private driveway provides for parking for 3 to 4 vehicles.
The Great Room provides something for everyone. Those who want to relax, can curl up with a book in the soft leather recliner or on the large, plush sectional sofa to stare out one of the many windows, watch their favorite movie or sporting event on the 50 inch, flat screen, SMART LG television (with Cable TV, a DVD and VCR player, and high speed wireless internet) or, they might simply watch the fire dance in the cast-iron, gas stove fireplace. Others might shoot a round of pool on the wooden, claw footed, felt-covered pool table, or sip on a drink from the wine fridge, while sitting at the beautiful built –in wood bar (featuring a classic bowling alley lane counter-top) and chatting over the bar with whoever might happen to be standing in the kitchen on the other side.
Robin’s Nest’s kitchen features a downdraft gas stove, refrigerator with ice maker, a dishwasher, country sink basin, and customized, hand-crafted, shabby chic kitchen cabinets and shelving, and a country cupboard that serves as a pantry. The kitchen is well stocked with every item you might find in your own home, and then some. It is fully equipped with a coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, blender, teapot and recycling bins. There is no microwave, there is a toaster oven.
The dining area’s solid wood table seats 6 to 8 comfortably, and opens up to the backyard and stone patio through the large, sliding glass doors. The breakfast nook seats another 8, if you add the expansion leaf to the table, and looks out on the front-yard through the charming bay window. Attractive glassware and china are found in the antique wooden hutch housed in the dining area and on the kitchen shelving.
The three bedrooms are airy and bright, each offering its own unique charm. All of the rooms have ceiling fans and blinds for maximum control of the light and new, firm mattresses with waterproof, hypoallergenic mattress covers on each. Each bedroom and the upstairs hallway features built-in shelving and drawers.
Every bedroom is furnished with its own antique beds, bedside tables, reading lamps, trunks, dressers, armoires and/or accessories.
