How to find a cheap weekend cabin in the Northeast?

I'd like to rent an inexpensive cabin, somewhere picturesque and north of NYC, with room enough to fit 6 people who don't mind crashing on the floor in sleeping bags, for one weekend in October or November this fall. What can you tell me?

We rented some ghetto cottages around here once, and it's a pretty stretch of road, close to Portsmouth, which is very scenic in October and November.

How far do you want to travel and what are you going to do? Northern NY & NE will be past foliage by then, which means rates will be cheaper, but not much to do. This site has links to cabins in the Adirondacks if you want to go that far North. You may even see snow in November.

A cousin of mine owns a cabin in Lyons Falls, just north of Utica, that they rent out pretty cheaply when not using. its on a river, very scenic and with lots of hiking nearby. Email me (in profile) and I can get you in touch with them.

I often go to a great place in the Adirondaks called the Adirondak Mountain's just outside of Lake Placid. They have cabins in the woods with heat and hot water, full kitchen and a bedroom with two bunk beds. There is a big couch in the living room and plenty of floor space. The area is gorgeous and offers hiking and x-c skiing. The price is pretty reasonable but book in advance as the cabins fill up quickly. I think they might also have larger cabins and they also have a main lodge that's more like a big open room.
