Great house and location. Owner had quick response and offered us early checkin due to the house being open. We fished all week and had a great time relaxing by the lake.

Good, direct communication from DM. We stayed a few nights while fishing the Salmon River. Quite a remarkable sunset & setting. Beach was nice to come back to & listen to the waves. Water is hard, so bring drinking water. Would like to come back with the family at some point. Thank you.

This was the perfect end of summer get away for my family. The house was everything we expected and the lake more than we expected. Watching my girls explore the shoreline from sun up to sun down was rewarding, and storytelling with bonfires and s'mores something I will never forget. Not only will we definitely come back, but home to find our own slice of sunshine on this shore some day.

David-Michael's cottage was charming and provided AMAZING beach access. The beach is worth every penny of this listing- David-Michael had told me that this is one of the best sunsets in America and he was right. We got to see one of the best sunsets of our lives and hung out on the beach watching the stars nearly all night long - we couldn't leave. Nobody else was out and it seemed like our own private paradise. The beach is just 15 steps from the cottage along a line of solar-powered lights for access at night- so thoughtful and convenient! The cottage itself is quaint, clean, and smelled very good. David-Michael kindly left us towels, though there were no sheets on the bed, which we knew about in advance but it would be great if he could arrange to have the bed made. We flew in from Chicago and it's not easy to bring sheets in your carry on. The blanket was also quite thin and we were cold through the night. It was a good thing we showered before we arrived as the current state of the shower is pretty rough- it was covered in rust (due to hard water- not the owner's fault) but it was very unsightly and the water pressure shot out like a fire hydrant (probably due to a rusty shower head) - I tried to brave it and get in but I got scared and decided I could live without that shower. Otherwise- everything was smooth. The cottage is a little hard to find, so make sure to be in contact with David-Michael (who is excellent at communicating!) about where the cottage is exactly. We did not do very much research on the area, as we were on a spontaneous trip through New York and saw this beach and needed to check it out. The area is very rural and farmy (not family organic farms but large-scale farms with chemicals spraying). We were surprised at how conservative the people were, but perhaps it was because we had just come from the Hudson River Valley. It seemed like a retirement community for people from Syracuse and I got the feeling that there was an army base near by. There are some decent restaurants in nearby Sacket's Harbor but if we were to do this again, we'd grab some local food in another town to grill at David-Michael's and spend every minute possible on the beach- because that's what this place is about.
