The beach house was very clean and comfortable. All accommodation were in place as promised. Very relaxing and not crowded. The beach area was clean and staff was friendly and helpful. Will definitely visit again and recommend to friends and family. The owner Mr. Chandler checked in and made sure our time there went wonderfully and made time to mingle... More

We want to thank Chandler for his hospitality during our week vacation. We loved the quiet easy going time we spent in the cottage. We had great vacation neighbors. The cottage was clean and simple and had all one would need. Our dog Sammy loved being there as well and he made friends with the neighbors too. We were so... More

If you are coming to the Adirondacks to enjoy nature and old fashioned charm, you will love The Elms. You will have a million dollar view 24 hours each day but my favorite time was morning with mist over the bay. The cabin was comfortable and had everything we needed including a full kitchen, a screened in porch, a bed... More

I've never felt more relaxed on any vacation than at The Elms. Sometimes less is more. Sometimes taking a break and enjoying some quiet time is what we all need. From complimentary row boats, kayaks, and paddle boats you can enjoy the beautiful Hudson River right outside your front door. But I must say sitting by the camp fire roasting... More

To be sure, the view of the river from the cabins at The Elms is pretty, but at $150 a night--midweek, off-season--one wants more than a room with a view. The first shock is realizing that what looks from their materials to be a secluded set of cottages nestled against the river is in fact a group of jerryrigged cabins... More

Where DO I BEGIN...we rented the cabin at the very end of the property last October.After losing everything that we owned and rebuilding our house after Super storm Sandy we were able to get away for the weekend.We were happy from the pictures and that it was pet friendly as we had a 121/2 year old lab mix.

We had a family reunion at The Elms. We rented 4 cabins for the week of 8/2/14. My husband, two children and I stayed in cabin 7. I'm not sure why there are so many bad reviews, we found our cabin very clean and cozy. My favorite thing about the cabin was the gorgeous view of the Hudson River from... More

We just had our 4th annual family reunion at The Elms and once again enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We loved the renovations that have been completed on the Lodge-- the knotty pine looks fresh and adds a lot. We had an engagement party for our daughter on Saturday with extra guests and Chandler, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful and... More

We own a local weekly newspaper and have been here several times, but this year it was just terrible, the cupboards and cooking utensils were disgusting, no extras at all unless you asked, but the straw that broke the camels back was the following. The Elms Waterfront Cottages Indian carving sat directly next to our cottage. Now we have been... More
