- Guests must agree to provide their email address, read and sign our electronic rental agreement and follow house instructions.

If this works for you, read on. You will LOVE it here!

The space
The cabin is all windows, so the views are stunning, even at night. We turn off the lights, turn on the fire, and enjoy the reflection of the moon off the lake.

Need to work while here? We have fiber optic wifi with a desk against the window so you can Zoom with a view.

You will find plenty of hiking, kayaking (best in the area!), swimming, exploring, skiing, snowshoe and snowmobile opportunities.

The open floor plan with cathedral ceilings creates a spacious main room with care free gas fireplace. There are 2 bedrooms, one with queen bed, one with a double. A separate TV room is for watching movies, reading or enjoying that mid afternoon nap.

Camp Stardust has a deep soaking bathtub with shower and an outdoor hot shower in the warmer months, indoor gas fireplace, outdoor fire pit, full kitchen, Weber charcoal grill, great fiber optic wifi, 40' flat screen for DVD movies and Netflix (but no cable), land line phone (no cell service), and a fabulous Sonos Stereo system with indoor and outdoor speakers to enjoy music while grilling or chilling.

You will have 4 kayaks, one canoe and adult life preservers. Our Lakefront Boathouse provides easy access to the water. Watercraft available May 10-Nov 1.

Most of our waterfront is too shallow to swim, so we kayak to the clear waters and sandy bottom of Piseco Lake for a swim.

Need we say how stunningly beautiful it is here during foliage? It's magical.

This cabin is like living inside a snow globe in the winter. There are so many windows you are simply surrounded by snowfall. A unique feature is that the slightly moving water out front rarely freezes, so expect water views and wildlife sightings year round. Otters are frequently seen sliding across the ice, very fun to watch!

Many hiking, snowshoeing and x-country ski adventures to be found locally. Great fishing. There is a small but very fun ski mountain, Oak Mt., next town over with a great vibe, good music and meals. Gore ski mountain is a 50 minute drive. We supply 4 sets of adult snowshoes. We are surrounded by woods, lake and rivers, so a snowshoe right from the front door will be an adventure through forest and striking river front spots.

This is snowmobile country - hundreds of miles of groomed trails through the woods and across the many lakes. Stop in to a local pub for lunch and a beer, and head out to the next lake. Local rentals, lessons and guides available.

But our favorite activity is sitting by the fire with a hot cocoa and observing the wilderness and the ever changing weather from the comfort of the sofa.

An all wheel (or 4 wheel) drive vehicle is necessary to navigate our snowy dirt driveway in winter. It is plowed regularly but can be tricky in icy weather. We recommend guests bring warm outdoor clothing, yak traks, tall snow boots and a sense of adventure!

This is a very private, secluded property, however it is not remote. It is easy to get to, we are down a private 200 foot dirt driveway directly off Rt 8.

DISCLOSURE: there are exterior security cameras

What's to LOVE? Just about everything listed above.

What might you NOT love? There is a small bridge nearby that separates our outlet from Piseco Lake, and you can hear the cars going over the bridge when outside which is the only thing we wish was different.

Also, RECYCLES are a real hassle here. Guests who choose to stay here must agree to take theirs home if they bring a lot in, or take a trip to the transfer station down the road and leave them there.

This is a great home for self reliant, independent travelers looking for very comfortable, private and pristine accommodation in a unique and special spot. Piseco and the surrounding area are beautiful, but have limited entertainment venues. There are bountiful nature hikes, mountains, wildlife, lakes and rivers.

Guests must be 25 years of age unless with parent.

Please note: We do not put arrival instructions on the Airbnb platform, as the platform cannot be accessed with no cell service in our town. We email them to you 10 days prior to arrival. KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THEM!

Reminder - no animals, smoking or unregistered guests.

We are David and Maura.

Over the past 12 years we have purchased and renovated 6 Adirondack and Saratoga properties. We enjoy sharing this area we love so much, and do all we can to provide an authentic and memorable experience for guests.

We ski, hike, swim, antique (you'll see lots in our houses!), kayak, cross country ski, snowshoe and snowmobile. If you are interested in these types of activities you will have access to all our special spots. If you prefer to sit and vegetate on the sofa, the interiors are comfy enough that you will be happy doing nothing too!
