Camp Lake Bear

Secluded Peninsula Lakefront Vacation Rental on Higley Flow in Colton, New York with Spectacular Views and Kayaking

A lakefront dream cabin with 220 feet of waterfront. Enjoy this newly remodeled and newly furnished cabin with a bird's eye view of the expanse of the lake. Situated perched up at the end of the peninsula, it adds privacy and tranquility. Bring your own boat as there is a public boat ramp, or rent kayaks that will be delivered straight to the property for your convenience. The cove by the dock adds swimming safety from boats and the gradual decline allows for wading. With the cabin surrounded by tall trees, it feels like a treehouse in a cozy woodland escape. Feel the warmth and hear the crackling fire in the outdoor fireplace where you can roast marshmallows, or grill a yummy BBQ lunch.


Conveniently located. Clarkson University is 13 miles from Camp Lake Bear, while SUNY Potsdam is 13 miles away. Canton-Potsdam Hospital is 14 miles away. The nearest airport is Ogdensburg Airport, 31 miles from the accommodation. 


There are twenty five original charming steps reminiscent of an Irish woodland fairytale going down to the home from the dirt road where you park. On the level of the home is where you will find a wood burning outdoor fireplace where guests can make smores or grill. Twenty steep steps will take you down to the next level down to a look out deck where you can see the boats going by. Further down, approximately thirty steps will take you to the newly renovated dock where there is a step ladder into the water for some splashing fun. 


Back up at the house, there is one bathroom and three bedrooms that sleep 7 people. 


The first bedroom consists of a brand new queen bed and side tables with charger plugs and three drawers. With a backdrop of fresh paint, it is decorated with pictures of the lake and an old oar. It has hooks on the wall, a mirror, two chairs and a three tiered cart for your personal items. This room houses the furnace to the heater which might be a little loud for some in the fall if it is on. It is open to the closet for ventilation. With the bedroom door open, there is a great view of the lake from the bed. 


The second bedroom has a brand new double bed with a single bunk over it. This freshly painted room also houses the brand new renovated shower. It has a chair, a three tiered cart for personal items, a full length mirror, and a shelving unit. 


On the way to the third bedroom is a couple of steps up to a breezeway that has the restroom, and the new washing machine and dryer. 


This third bedroom offers a bit of coziness and privacy away from the rest of the rooms making it a good room if someone needs to do remote work or hop on a zoom call or take an afternoon nap. It has an office chair and some shelf space in front of a window. This room retains its original wood like charm, has a double bed with simple side tables for the lamps, a cabinet with shelves, a shelving unit and its own heating system. 


The great room has the living room and dining room combined for family gatherings. The dining area is graced with brand new furnishings including a large dining room table, four dining chairs and a seating bench, for meals, games, or bird gazing with binoculars.
