From prior reviews, this home was just as we expected. The grounds are huge, plenty of room to play games outside. Inside, the house was very clean and kept up quite well. The bedrooms were quiet and comfortable. There was plenty of room to accomodate the 11 adults in our group. I would recommend that you bring pleny of personal supplies, as local fare is a little scarce. We caught several bass in the pond, swim if you like, we did not. Weather was hot and humid, but the house was really quite comfortable. We would definitely stay here again!
This log cabin is just wonderful, upon arrived and walking out of my car, I feel like I’m walking into a beautiful painting. The cabin is exactly how the owner describes it.
My sisters, their families, and my family had a wonderful time while staying there. My son who loves taking photos took some very beautiful pictures of the milky way. Even though we couldn’t do much outdoor due to the cold weather, we enjoy staying inside with the wood burning stove in the living room. The kids didn’t even want to visit the Howe Cavern and rather stay and play games.
We will definitely return if we ever want to come to upstate NY again.
This is the second time we have rented this home when we visit family in the Sidney - Bainbridge area. It is very comfortable and convenient. We spend most of our time in the screened porch with the magnificent view. The kitchen is spacious for preparing family meals. Having wi-fi plus a washer, dryer and clothes line is a big plus. We're very grateful to have the opportunity to rent this lovely home. Highly recommend.

First of all, this house is beautiful. The pictures do not to do it justice at all. My friends wanted to go up to visit the house before our trip, I'm glad they did not because all of our reactions were priceless. It is much more spacious than the pictures lead you to believe, and there seemed to be much more bedding than we thought. The kitchen already had some snack foods such as chips, and baking essentials, and the house was stocked with games and activities to do.
The house was very open, as was the backyard, and very, very secluded. We were unsure if we were going to go in the lake, but those of us who did had a lot of fun despite the fact that the water was freezing since its early June.
Donald and Karen Tensfeld were very, very accommodating in addition. I have had many conversations with them, working out the fine details regarding our stay and they were very kind, caring, and genuinely concerned about our well being and us enjoying our stay.
The house was absolutely perfect for my group (17 people but it can probably hold 20-22 if you bring extra beds/air mattresses). We are already planning a trip to return next summer!
The place was amazing! The view was beautiful. The region got hit with a lot snow so unfortunately I couldn't take advantage of the pond or the wide open yard. We had 9 people stay there and there was plenty of room everyone got a bed. Bathrooms were clean and well stocked along with the kitchen. The sun room was absolutely gorgeous, it was nice to sit in there and just admire the view.
A close group of friends and I went up to this beautiful cabin this fall. Before even booking, Don was very helpful with every question I had. Every question was answered through emails within a couple of hours, if not the next day. As to expect, trying to get 10 people to agree on dates and when to pay was a disaster, but the owners were very understanding and patient and worked with us through the whole month of indecision. When the day finally came, it took us 3 and a half hours to get there from the city, but was completely worth it! The place was gorgeous and surrounded by beautiful land which was the reason we picked the place, we are a group of nature freaks. It's surrounded by forest making it perfectly secluded. We ended up hiking through some parts for a couple hours, next time bringing biodegradable tape to mark areas because we almost got lost,but did find our way back! Ok, back to the house. Even though we had 10 it could easily sleep more, the living room is exactly like in the picture if not bigger and we all woke up really early to watch the beautiful sunrise! The beds were good, no one complained. Not one person wanted to leave when the time had to come. If and when we do come back, we definitely need to remember to buy loads of garbage and recycle bags. Feeding 10 people, mostly grown men, for 3 days, I can't even count the amount of trash we needed to clean! All in all, not one thing to complain about! We made great memories here and will definitely come back for more!
