The property features sweeping views of Rainbow lake on both sides of the esker. The trail from the house leads, in about 100 yards, to ADK park land (it is the second to last house on the Esker, after that there are two miles of protected esker). The living room has a Jotul wood burning stove set into a stone masonry fire place. The entire cottage has been tastefully renovated by the previous owner, a renowned builder/restorer/designer.

We cannot get to our cabin because of the travel restrictions and are looking to exchange this cabin for something similar in Canada.
