Description of the Glenfield vacation cabin rental
Amazing! What a spot! Oh my Gosh! Wow! Its like something out of a National Geographic Magazine! This is what people are saying when they come to the Independence River Cabin. New feature has Snowshoes Available to rent for your winter wonderland adventure!
This beautiful log sided cabin sits 65 feet from the awesome Independence River, with great views of the gentle rapids and pools . If you like privacy this is it, it is located on 5.7 acres of old growth forest, and a 600' long private driveway to cabin site. If you are a horseback rider this place is a short ride on your horse to connect to the 65 miles of otter creek state forest trail system. If you like hiking directly from cabin and or cross country skiing you found the place.
The cabin located within Adirondack Park boundary is truly a unique spot to just enjoy the Adirondack trails and area.
If you like modern rustic charm this cabin has it all. The decor in this cabin is amazing and has great new furniture, log cedar beds, a bar top island that will truly amaze you. We take great pride in making sure this Cabin is super clean. You 'fussy' females who love clean places will feel very comfortable in this cabin.
The cabin has 2 bedrooms. One downstairs and one up stairs. Also a loft area overlooking living area can be used as third bedroom. One full bath with a 4' shower . Kitchen area features all new appliances,refrigerator, electric cook stove, microwave. Kitchen counter top is a special 4 inch slab of a full tree, also small island bar top. Enjoy a romantic evening around the glass front wood stove in the living area, also cabin has electric heat for those really cold winter nights.
Also cabin has satellite Dish TV and you can view local TV stations and 120 other cable TV channels
The fishing along the river has great Trout fishing.Explore and go fishing upstream directly from cabin on miles and miles of river all on NYS DEC managed Stateland. You can venture and explore out along the river.Discover and explore the rapids, small pools, waterfalls, islands, cliffs, sandbars for miles upstream.
A new Fire Pit has been constructed located on the bank of the river. Enjoy the sound and the view of the river while having great friend and family campfire time. And if you play guitar do not forget to bring for great strumming and singing around the fire light.
Area Information
Located on the otter creek horse trail system ,includes 65 miles of horse trails located on Independence River and Otter Creek State Forest. Located within the Adirondack park.These trails on the state forest are also great hiking trails and cross country ski trails. Trails wind through wooded areas along Adirondack ponds, gently flowing waters like Otter, Little Otter, Beaver Meadow, Chase and Crooked Creeks, and the Independence River and Gleasmans Falls.The Otter Creek State Forest horse stables are 2.5 mies away, and close to many private horse back riding stables.

Things to do At Independence River Cabin and other information.


Many hiking trails directly from cabin to access 76,000 acres of Independence River Wild Forest ,or drive to many other trail heads close by. The most popular trail to hike nearby is Gleasmans Falls. The Trail head is about 3 miles away off Beachmill Road, then from parking area it is a 3 mile hike in to the Gleasmens falls. We also supply trail maps and information about the nearby trails at the Cabin. You can always hike along the Independence River Upstream from the Cabin, it is almost entirely State Lands , DEC. So take a hike along the River and explore the rapids, calm waters, waterfalls, sandbars, islands., great fishing holes, cliffs. Also you can tube down the River, you can drive on Bailey Road (on Stateland )located at the end of Sperryville Road and drive to the Old Bridge. Then from there you can tube down river one mile to the Cabin. Hike where not many hike too, be a wilderness adventurer, be bold.

The Village of Lowville (Population about 6,000) is 10 miles away. It has some unique gifts and specialty shops and art shops. It also has 2 major Grocery stores a Wal Mart and a Tops. Just outside of Lowville is Millers Meat Market (actually you will pass by on your way to Lowville), has great custom cut meats and a great “Jerky Burger” great to cook on grill. Also visit Noltzs Country Store just north of Lowville on route 812.

For dining there are many Resturaunts in the area. I would recommend “Jebs” which is similair to an Apple Bees and is located on Shady Ave in the center of Lowville. Also the “Ridgeview” which is located just outside of Lowville on Route 12 . The Ridgeview is fairly new and has a modern rustic touch with timber frame construction, and cedar log chairs and tables. Also about 6 miles outside of Lowville on Route 12 is the “ Tughill Vineyard. You can visit their wine tasting rooms and specialty shops. You can also tour the Vineyard outside on golf carts provided. Also usually live acoustic music Thursdays through Saturdays.

Visit the Croghan Maple Musuem 12 miles away and learn of the rich history of Maple Syrup production in Lewis County. Visit the Rail Road Musuem also in Croghan. Also in Croghan area visit the Mennonite Heritage Farm. Oh and also when your in Croghan do not forget to buy some fresh famous “Croghan Bologna” and stop by the “Croghan Candy Kitchen” and buy a great varity of homemade candies.

Go Horseback riding at Still Meadow Ranch, they have miles of new trails that wind through gently rollingmeadows and forests. Amazing views of the Adirondacks and the Black River Valley.

Visit and drive by the Tug Hill Wind farm just outside of Lowville and marvel at the many Windmills. There are designated Windmills you can drive too and park at base and take photos. You can also visit the Lewis County Historical society in Lowville. Also every Saturday visit and shop at the Farmers Market at the Lowville Fair Grounds Pavillion.

1000 Islands Region is 1.25 hours away, go on Uncle Sam Boat Tour commencing from the tourist village of Alexandria Bay. This tour is very scenic and can learn the history of the area ,also makes a stop at the famous Boldt Castle .

The tourist village of Old Forge is 50 minutes away. Visit Enchanted Forest and Water Safari, or visit the many specialty shops, or go on a diner cruise starting on First lake then going to Fourth Lake .

And of course if your really not into the tourist life, or crowded places you can always hang out at my beautiful cabin, sit on the porch and read, or invite a few friends over and start a campfire in our firepit and listen to the sound of the peacefull river.


Go downhill skiing at Snow Ridge Ski Resort in Turin about 15 minutes away. Also downkill ski at McCauley Mountain in Old Forge NY about 50 min away .

Go cross country Skiing , or snowshoeing ,from Cabin drive down to end of Sperryviile Road at snow plow turn around ,State parking lot ¼ mile from cabin. Then you can access miles of trails for skiing. There are also other places to access you can access trails nearby.

Go snowmobiling. You can rent snowmobiles from 4 different Places where you drive the snowmobiles directly from the shop that are right on the hunreds of miles of designated trails. The Snowmobiling in this area is a major recreation and people from all over the Northeast come here to take advantage of the high snowfall we have.

Husband's Birthday!

July 28, 2015

As usual I try to plan something for my husband who only requires simple things in life... but will do everything for others. So I try to plan a weekend or night away... something he would only do for the kids not his self... so last minute booked the cabin! 5 hour drive to & fro but well worth it. Met Mary & Koda and Mom, very gracious and bubbly! Cabin was very clean! (even with my obsessive need for cleanliness) the sight is beautiful and quiet... thankful for know cell phone, being from the city. The river is best for fishing and an adventurous, fearless 11 year old (girl) who created- junior white river rafting. I tried and fell over and smashed into a rock hence my ignorance & consequence! Husband relived his years as a boyscout- firepit and made smores. Full on BBQ a & brkfst in the a.m. My only suggestion would be a crock pot or stock pot in house. Ralph does get in touch with you and is thorough. very nice people & dog. I recommend and plan on going back or trying the lake house!

Secluded, picturesque cabin in the middle of nowhere. Very clean and spacious with plenty of room for us to sleep. The porch overlooking the river was a wonderful way to spend time drinking morning coffee. Short drive into town with great food. Thanks for allowing us to share your cabin Ralph. We will see you again soon :)

Great Retreat!

August 11, 2013

We absolutely loved this place! We needed to get away from it all and this was the place. The sound of the river is so soothing. The fires at night along with the river sounds could put you to sleep. The cabin is gorgeous and we had a alot of privacy. We loved sitting on the porch having our coffee each morning. We traveled from out of state but our families live in the area. Everyone that visited just adored this place. We recommend this cabin to anyone. We are planning on renting it again. Thank you Ralph! It was a pleasure meeting you.

Independence River Cabin

July 17, 2013

My husband and I used this beautifully built, newly constructed cabin in Glenfield, NY as a home base for relaxation by the rushing river, for tv viewing and Smores in the fire pit and as we ventured out to nearby towns for antiquing, shopping, horseback riding, fly fishing, dining at a local winery as well as other restaurants and for scenic drives. There were just two of us but the cabin could accommodate up to 6 people with its two bedrooms and loft area as well as a rustically decorated kitchen, dining and living area. We enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend the location!

Incredible Getaway..........

June 17, 2013

It was an incredible getaway in the Adirondacks . We would recommend this to anyone that needs to getaway from it all. The cabin was immaculate, the decor truly reflected the Adirondacks. The scenic view from the porch over looking the river fantastic. We can honestly say that we would not hesitate to stay here again in the future.
