Robin's Nest-Spectacular 3 Bdrm 2 Bath Sleeps 8-10

  • 3 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms


Named after its first inhabitants – a momma robin and her babies nesting in the roof's rafters - Robin's Nest is a gorgeous year-round cabin in the Southern Adirondacks in quaint, rustic & sleepy Caroga Lake. Although not on the water, Robin's Nest is a short block from West Caroga Lake in a quiet neighborhood with sweet houses. Recently lovingly restored with an eye toward preserving its rustic charm, it has all all the benefits and comforts of modern day amenities
Robin's Nest features a great room, pool table, bar, wine fridge, flat screen TVs, a spacious patio, large yard, and rights to a small, shared private beach with a private dock on West Caroga Lake. The lake is about a two minute walk from the home which again is on a quiet neighborhood street with sweet houses and friendly neighbors. It sleeps 8 people comfortably in three charming bedrooms
The private, largely fenced in back yard offers a flagstone patio, wooden picnic tables, a gas grill and outdoor fire pit. Adirondack chairs around a fire offer a place to relax, share stories and gaze at the night sky and stars. Native trees, flowers and plants, including a crab apple tree, lilac bushes and a black raspberry patch make up the landscape. A private driveway provides for parking for 3 to 4 vehicles
The Great Room provides something for all. Those who want to relax, can curl up with a book in the soft leather recliner or on the large, plush sectional sofa to stare out one of the many windows, watch their favorite movie or sporting event on the 50 inch, flat screen, SMART LG television (with Cable TV, a DVD and VCR player, and high speed wireless internet-24 megs of bandwith) or, they might simply watch the fire dance in the cast-iron, gas stove fireplace. Others might shoot a round of pool on the wooden, claw footed, felt-covered pool table, make use of the wine fridge or sit at the beautiful built –in wood bar (featuring a classic bowling alley lane counter-top) and chatting over the bar with whoever is in the kitchen on the other side
Robin's Nest's kitchen features a downdraft gas stove, refrigerator with ice maker, a dishwasher, country sink basin, and customized, hand-crafted, shabby chic kitchen cabinets and shelving, and a country cupboard that serves as a pantry. The kitchen is well stocked with every item you might find in your own home, and then some. It is fully equipped with a coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster, blender, teapot and recycling bins. Although no microwave, there is a toaster oven
The dining area's solid wood table seats 6 to 8 comfortably, and opens up to the backyard and stone patio through the sliding glass door. The breakfast nook seats another 8, if you add the expansion leaf to the table, and looks out on the front-yard through the charming bay window. Attractive glassware and china are found in the antique wooden hutch in the dining area and on the kitchen shelving
The three bedrooms are airy and bright, each offering its own unique charm. All of the rooms have ceiling fans and blinds for maximum control of the light and new, firm mattresses with waterproof, hypoallergenic mattress covers on each. Each bedroom and the upstairs hallway features built-in shelving and drawers
Every bedroom is furnished with its own bed, bedside tables, reading lamps, trunks, dressers, armoires and/or accessories. Each bed is covered with charming, country, shabby chic quilts, organic cotton blankets and pillows of all shapes and sizes. YOU PROVIDE YOUR OWN LINENS- SHEETS, PILLOWCASES AND TOWELS
