We have stayed in a variety of rental properties over the years, but have rarely stayed in a place that was as clean, well-maintained, and well-appointed as this home. (I emphasize the word home, because it felt immediately as though we were home when we walked through the door.) Every room, closet and drawer has exactly the things that you would want if you lived there. We were very comfortable.
This house is situated on a rocky peninsula overlooking the lake and provides direct access off the back deck and down several steps to the water and dock. This is unlike many of the nearby properties that require you to cross the road to get to the dock. The view of the lake was excellent and the cool breezes kept the bugs at bay. The location off the North Shore Road was convenient, but the area is not built-up or "touristy", so there was little traffic and we found it to offer a quiet and secluded feeling. The town of Northville (15 minutes to the southwest) is probably the easiest place to get gas, food, a pizza or some ice cream. The location worked fine for us, but if you intend to use the house as a base for exploring the Adirondacks, you should know that you will have to drive several miles (in any direction) before you get to main roads.
The lake is large and beautiful, with cool, clear water and a lot of room and not too many boats. (Of course, we were there a week or two before the summer season.) We enjoyed canoeing and also running about the lake on a rental pontoon boat from the nearby Edinburg Marina. We didn't try the fishing, but saw quite a few boats out and have no doubt that they were having some luck.
Arrangements for the rental were easy and interaction with the owners was pleasant. We will definitely recommend this place to our friends and family and, should we ever make it back to this part of the country, will certainly see if we can stay here again.
