Very sunny breakfast room facing the river for a gorgeous view while you're having your morning coffee. The large yard boasts a boat launch for small watercraft, along with a 30 foot dock. Two level deck with furniture. 100+ ft of river frontage. There is a public boat launch just 5 minutes away. Very close to Cross Lake. Outside firepit. Feels like you're in the middle of nowhere, but you're only 3 miles from the nearest highway.

“Baldwinsville Riverfront Home”

Reviewed 29 Jul 2015

We had a wonderful stay at this residence! The owners provide everything you and your family need to ensure a comfortable stay. The setting is serene and private, boasting a beautiful view of the river from the back deck. The home was perfect for a big family BBQ, as the owners provided a gas grill, propane, all the utensils/dishes needed, as well as plenty of seating in and outside of the house. Our guests and I really enjoyed the selection of board games that allowed us to reminisce about playing them as children! Such a nice touch. Moreover, we appreciated that the property is dog-friendly, as our dog is a member of our family and travels with us often. Mrs. Jordan is so friendly and easy to contact if needed. Thank you so much and we hope to come back next summer!

Owner's reply: Thank you for your review, we truly appreciate it! Our dog is a member of our family as well, and he loves running around and swimming in the river!

“Great place for a reunion!”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2014

Great place to stay. Had a reunion there for four days and we all absolutely loved it. The living room and three bedrooms were nice and large enough to fit 18-20 people comfortably. The outside area was nice, with a large lawn and deck for activities. And access to the river was great. Will stay there again in the future, I recommend this property

Owner's reply: Thank you for these kind words. We are always happy when guests enjoy the place. I don't think we have had so many people stay there together! The house was returned to us as though no one stayed at all. It was very clean. Ryan, you and your friends are always welcome!

“Holiday Winter Wonderland”

Reviewed 2 Dec 2013

We couldn't have asked for more. Carla was very responsive, professional, and accommodating to our last minute request for renting. The house was warm, logs for the fire, and perfect for my brothers and our families over the Thanksgiving Holiday. The views of the river are impressive and breathtaking! Large rooms and an open layout were perfect for the kids, while giving the adults our own time as well. Snow was beautiful and long drive was paved by 10am. Take the drive very slow to avoid pot holes; we made a game of it that the kids enjoyed! We would love to stay in the summer as well!

Owner's reply: Alison, Thank you for those kind words. You received some unusual, beautiful snow for your visit. I am so glad you were able to spend the holiday with your family, and that you enjoyed yourselves so much. You are very welcome to come back anytime! The house was left immaculate.... like you weren't even there. Thanks for taking such good care of it during your stay. Regards, Carla and Casey

“Christmas in Baldwinsville”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2013

This was a wonderful way to celebrate Christmas with our rather large extended family (20 people). The rental home was large, clean, and comfortable with a wonderful working fireplace. Our grand-kids loved staying with us and going for long walks to see if we could find deer tracks in the snow. The area is very remote and very quiet. We did have quite a bit of snow and the folks 2 doors down had a truck with a snow plow and were kind enough to plow the main dirt road so that we could get out on to the main road. We had a wonderful time and are planning on doing this again.

“Our Family Shangrila”

Reviewed 25 Nov 2012

A lovely, quiet and peaceful space for our wonderful Thanksgiving reunion. Plenty of room for our large gathering. The kitchen was very well stocked with all the amenities (minus an egg beater but I just happened to have brought one) :):) When I called Carla to ask if there was a large enough cutting board for the turkey she informed it was something the house probably needed and graciously had one available upon arrival. Unexpected snow was a lovely view overlooking the river with early morning coffee. All of us were so pleased to have found this fabulous home away from our homes. It will be a memorable Thanksgiving. Thank you!!

“Off The Beaten Path!”

Reviewed 2 Jul 2012

First things first, the house was as advertised when it comes to sleeping 8 (4 adults, 4 teenagers), which we did somewhat comfortably. I say somewhat due to 1 smallish bed and the need to bring our own air-mattress. The kitchen had all the necessary utensils and the gas grill worked great. The deck was also very enjoyable in the AM but as to be expected next to a river the bugs came out in force in the PM. As for that river, it yielded quite a few fish from the dock but is not swim ready (we were in town for a triathlon). We also got to bring our dog on the trip and she loved the property and surrounding area, made better by the lack of any traffic. The traffic is non-existent thanks to the house being at the end of a dirt/gravel road, so plan to hit the car wash AFTER your stay! Re the teenagers, they loved the wireless access and the fishing but having a personal watercraft, kayak and/or boat (there's a private launch) would have enhanced the trip. Helpful hint, make sure to enter ALL numbers listed for wireless access! Bottom line with this property, great value for the money, peace & quiet along the river, could use another window mounted A/C unit or two, but overall we would definitely stay here again! Also, the owners of the property could not have been more helpful and accommodating! PS. If you fish, go see Betty on Jordan Ave in Cato for all your bait & tackle needs, she was a highlight of the trip!

Owner's reply: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for the kind words, your feedback is soooo helpful. Carla and Casey

“River House”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2009

We stayed at the River House with children and grandchildren and all had a wonderful time. It was very relaxing to be so close to the water - the hammock was frequently in use. The deck was a favorite place and we enjoyed sitting out there and watching the chipmunks and the activity on the river. We had a family reunion one night and the yard was big enough for everyone. A nice location - peaceful yet near town.

“awesome fishing vacation”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2009

Thanks for one of the best vacations ever. My wife and kids had the best time puting the boat in the water and going to nearby Cross Lake to swim and catch some of the best tasting fish. The location was better than expected, with the town close enough but it felt like we were in the mountains somewhere. Thanks again and we have told others about our vacation with you. Gene Day and family
