Blueberry Pond Retreat is close to attractions: Lake Ontario, Sandy Pond, Salmon River+Reservoir, and public snowmobile, ATV, and XC skiing trails. You’ll love your stay because of the scenic 140 acres of outdoor space (huge deck, 4 acre pond, streams, rolling hay field, hiking/biking/ATV/snowmobile trails), cozy rooms with comfy beds, and large living areas. This place is ideal for family vacations, reunions, celebrations, and church group gatherings. Ask about the newly finished 3rd floor.

This vacation property is unique. It facilitates large family or small group gatherings while offering an incredibly wide range of activities on-site or nearby.

From the comfortable and spacious indoors with beautiful country views, to the large deck overlooking the ever-changing beauty of moving water or still reflections, to paddling or swimming in the pond, to adventuring along the trails around the 140 acres of field, woods, and brooks, everyone can find something they love to do. With abundant lake-effect snow unique to the area, winter brings a whole new level of outdoor activity opportunity for snowmobiling, snowshoeing, and cross-country skiing.

*** Ask about our newly finished 3rd-story getaway level. The 3rd floor can only be rented in combination with the main house booking; it cannot be booked separately from the main house. The 3rd floor includes: 2 additional bedrooms that sleep 4 adults (2 twin XL beds plus 1 full bed) for a house total of 16 overnight guests; a full bath; kitchenette; dining area with balcony; living area with 55” TV, and especially scenic views!

*** Additional charges apply if hosting more than the 12 overnight guests or 16 if also renting the 3rd floor. Owner must be notified. Overnight occupancy up through the 2nd floor is up to twelve (12) based on beds or up to sixteen (16) if the 3rd floor is rented in combination with the main house. If more people stay overnight, Guest agrees to pay $30 per additional person per night.

*** Guest is permitted to invite non-overnight guests to enjoy the property with them during the day. Weddings and wedding receptions are not allowed. Guest shall inform Owner if non-overnight guests are invited to the property and agrees to pay additional fees as communicated by Owner (normally $10 per non-overnight guest per day).

No need to trailer your Snowmobiles or ATV’s to parking lots. Snowmobile and ATV groups ride their machines on the shoulder of Van Auken Rd past our driveway all the time to access the trails directly. The Pulaski-Boylston C5A Corridor Snowmobile Trail is less than a mile straight north of our property.

The closest most popular activities are the fishing and water sports attractions due to the Salmon River, the Reservoir, and the Falls. State Park beaches on Lake Ontario are nearby, and there are golf courses over there too. A little further away to the northeast, in our Tug Hill region, there is a popular wine tasting vineyard location in Lowville. Henderson Harbor and Sackets Harbor to the northwest on Lake Ontario are nice villages to visit. Watertown has a shopping mall, and whitewater rafting on the Black River. The Thousand Islands region has a great boat tour on the St. Lawrence River that departs from Alexandria Bay. If you are interested in a quick trip to Canada, Kingston, Ontario, is only a 1.75 hour drive away. About 50 minutes to the south of us, in Syracuse, is Destiny USA, a large shopping and entertainment complex on the shore of Onondaga Lake.

Our own local country roads are great for biking/running/walking and there are miles of woods trails on our property for motorized toys or just your power. We have a 4-acre pond stocked for catch-and-release fishing. There are lively large-mouth bass near the top and sleepy channel catfish near the bottom. We have a swimming/canoeing/kayaking dock too.

Lacona, New York, USA

This is a country setting with lots of available outdoor activity and beauty to explore. The area is well-known for Fishing, ATV and Snowmobile touring, and Cross-Country skiing.

This property has been in the family since 1974 providing years of fun and memories. It came into our hands in 2010. The spring-fed pond was added in 2011. The soil removed from the pond excavation provided the perfect soil for blueberries, so we started a blueberry farm operation. The pond water is for irrigating the blueberries, hence the name Blueberry Pond. The pond also added such a beautiful and peaceful character to the property that we have been continually improving it. Along with that investment came about the idea of offering it as a unique vacation rental. Now we would like others to enjoy it as we do.
