Guestbook comments from the owner
A beautifuil part of the US. We had a fantastic time down hill skiing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and snowmobiling (to name a few). This place truly has it "ALL". A great place for our Christmas Vacation. Merry Christmas from the "M" Family. NJ/IN/WV and Bradford Oklahoma

I reside in Western Suffolk Long Island, NY. I work for North Shore University Hospital. Enjoy traveling, snowmobiling, skiing, and sailing to name a few. Old Forge is my favorite destination of all time. I am glad to be able to share my home with many great family's who enjoy all the Adirondacks have to offer... no matter what season.

Tony purchased this chalet in 2005

The people are great, the local food is excellent, and the views in every season are quite spectacular. Old Forge is a truly affordable vacation spot. There is so much to do in the area its impossible to bore yourself. We built the house from 2004-2005. We chose the neighborhood cause it was quiet, close to town, and close to the lake. Old Forge has something for everyone. I am big into snowmobiling and we have direct trail access to hundreds of miles of beautiful Adirondack Seclusion.

I like that the house was designed the way we wanted it. Every room in the house carries its own theme, and knowing we designed the layout gives us peace of mind. We enjoy the snowfall in the winter, the great foliage in the fall, Whitewater rafting in the spring, and summers bring some of the best day and night weather in all of New York.

JULY IS GREAT IN THE ADIRONDACKS!

  • 5 of 5
I wouldnt normally take the time to fill out a review but my wife insisted on doing so after our fanstastic stay in "First Lake Retreat".

First off talking with the owner Tony was a pleasurable experience. He was very nice on the phone and spent 1/2 hour answering all our questions about the area and the accomodations. And we can say he didnt stretch the truth.

From the moment we pulled up to the property we could tell that is was going to be a good week. the house is situated in a nice area and really gives a great presence over the woods.

The inside was decorated perfect for the adirondack area. Whoever the decorator was.... did a great job. Leather couches were very comfortable and the king size bed made for an easy nights sleep. It is very quiet in this neighborhood and that provided some real peaceful R&R.

After spending some time on the beach we realized that we would probably not rent on the water. I thought that it would be a set back in this house but it wasnt. being 1 block up from the water kept away all the boat traffic that goes on all week long.

There are plenty of activities in the area so spend a week in Old Forge and you'll have a great time. Make Sure to stay here at this home cause they have everything!

Thanks for a great week we'll be back next summer!

WINTER SNOWMOBILING RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My family had a great time snowmobiling in the Old Forge area and using your retreat as our basecamp. Nicely set up for a large family to enjoy some down time. We had a great time and found the chalet to be as described and the communication with the owners was first rate.

Parking with a large snowmobile trailer would be difficult, but with 2 place was O.K. Right on the trail with easy access to trails towards Old Forge and to First Lake to go up the chain towards Eagle Bay & Inlet. Hope to go again next year. Highly recommended!

AMAZING GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
Dear Tony and Bonita,

All of us had such an amazing time at your BEAUTIFUL home.
The pictures online are not even close enough of what your home brings. I really loved your decore and the atmosphere we all felt while our vacation stay.

This little town has so much to offer. Very pretty sights all around. Our family had an amazing time cruising down the snowmobile trails that run right by the property (very convenient).
We took so many pictures... All of us had one wish (LET IT SNOW) and boy, was our wish granted .

Hopping to visit there again in the future and I will recommend your home to my friends/family.

PERFECT RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We had a perfect time in Old Forge and truly enjoyed staying at the First Lake Retreat. The house is very charming and spacious and has everything you'd need. We loved an Adirondack-inspired decor of the house and easy access to the lake and numerous hiking trails. The Black Bear trail was great and manageable even in the icy conditions. Thank you, Tony and Bonita, for an opportunity to stay in your house where we felt like being at home.
