The owner was very easy to work with and had great & efficient communication with us.
The area is nice, though there are neighbors, it is secluded and quiet. But it is on a busy highway, so going for a walk or run is a bit risky, as there is no shoulder and best to drive into town.
The home is small, but plenty for our family, and surrounded by beautiful outdoor area - the reason we were there, so the size wasn't really a problem. But it is older, and bedrooms are tight. There were also a ton of dead bugs all around, every corner in every room, I would have liked to see them cleaned up with a shop vac in between guests. (Given where we were, I would not be upset by a couple here or there, but they were everywhere, including the counters and sinks.)
There is no central AC, which again is not a huge deal, but maybe leave a welcome note/instructions with where and how to use the window & portable units (as well as how you would like them left, to a certain temp or turned off completely, etc). I had never used a portable AC unit, so had to (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) for a manual, and even then couldn't find the exact right one, and try to figure out how to assemble the parts, where to put it, etc – instruction sheet or labels would have been helpful here.
It does have a beautiful waterfront back yard, which was great for sitting and relaxing, and letting the kids run around. Access to the water is down a narrow set of stairs to a small landing. However, the access to the water is limited to stairs and a small landing on the water. No "beach" or walkable area down at the water level to put your feet in or anything.
We did love the access from here to other points along the river, visiting Clayton & Alexandria Bay, as well as hopping over to Canada easily from this vacation spot.
