A beautiful riverfront log cabin set in an idyllic area of the Adirondack Park. The cabin, made of hand-hewn cedar logs, is located in the hamlet of Black Brook minutes from Taylor Pond, Silver Lake and Union Falls Pond. This ideal spot offers easy access to Lake Placid, Wilmington and Whiteface, as well as Saranac Lake and Lake Champlain. For day trippers, Montreal is only 90 minutes away (bring passport!) There is great hiking, biking, skiing, swimming, canoeing, golfing and fishing all within minutes. The lodge sits on over 8 acres of land and includes a secluded, wooded path to a private stretch of river with over 550 of frontage and excellent fly fishing. The river run on the property is completely private, and you can fall asleep on the deck listening to the swift current of the south branch of the Saranac. The cabin was built with gourmet cook in mind: commercial appliances, farmhouse sink, Italian tile counter-top, hood vent and custom lighting. The home has an open floor plan with two bedrooms and a full bath on one end and a master suite with master bath on the other. Master bath has a double sink, a Jacuzzi claw foot tub, and a water closet. Stone fireplace in great room. Ceiling fans throughout. 52' foot covered porch in front of house overlooking flower garden and ideal for watching sunsets. 52' deck in back overlooking Ellis and Tolman Mountains (great for sunrise, exposure south and east). Beautiful path to river where boulders for sunbathing, wading pools and excellent trout fishing await you. Bird-watchers paradise. Nature library (including guidebooks and field guides). Come north for solitude, serenity, and stargazing. This is Adirondack living at its finest, a home for the outdoor enthusiast with all the amenities.
My wife and I took my parents up to Black Brook Lodge for a three-day weekend and we all loved it. The house is comfortable and low key but also features an amazing kitchen with first-rate appliances, cutlery, silverware, etc. It's a perfect combination of luxury and rustic. The house is near to excellent hikes and walks and the only sound you can hear is the nearby Saranac River, but you're also close to Lake Placid and Plattsburgh in case you want to see a film or shop or go out to eat (there's also ping pong, an excellent DVD collection, and a good library for indoor distractions). The property has extensive frontage on the Saranac River, with a number of excellent fishing spots within walking distance from the house. There are more fishing spots within a short drive, and it's 20 minutes to the Ausable River, which is one of the great trout streams in America. There's something for everyone and I can't recommend it highly enough.
Thank you for a wonderful stay at your beautiful cabin. Your photos don't convey how beautiful the cabin is! My family and I were able to have a relaxing vacation. Just one of the great things about the cabin is that it is fully stocked with entertainment items/dishes/excellent pots and pans, etc. It made packing easier! Thank you for all the recommended spots to visit. I will recommend this location to anyone I know travelling in the area.
Our family spent a full week at the lodge in early July and loved the entire stay. The cabin was as described with a gourmet kitchen, satellite TV, plenty of space (including sleeping arrangements for 4 children +), clean, well maintained, nicely decorated, etc. With 4 kids, it's nice to have a real working kitchen in order to prepare real meals instead of "vacation take out". Oh, and the three full baths were perfect for our big family. You can stay the whole time at the lodge and enjoy the peaceful grounds and the beautiful Saranac River on the property (which is completely isolated from the any roads, houses, or people) or you can easily drive to many attractions in the area. We rented canoes on the Ausable river, rafted down the Ausable Chasm, spent a day in Lake Placid, hiked trails and climbed mountains, spent time at a nearby beach, took a day trip to Montreal (very easy 1 1/2 hr drive), took the ferry over to Burlington Vermont, fished some of the best fly fishing rivers around, and plenty of other stuff. All of this was within a very reasonable distance from the cabin. Roads & towns in the area are very easy to drive and understand. The cabin is in the perfect place if you are interested in the activities in the “high peaks” region. The owners were wonderful to deal with and the process is very straightforward. This was one of our best vacations and we will be back.
What a fantastic place to stay. The cabin was the perfect size. Incredible kitchen to cook in which is certainly not the case with 99% of the rentals out there. The open living, dining and kitchen area was the perfect size to relax together. The basement was spacious and perfect for our 1 and 2 year old to get their wiggle out. They also LOVED the 50 plus foot covered front porch. They spent hours running back and forth out there. Which was good cause we had rain almost everyday! That made the comfort of the house even more important as we spent a little more time there than exploring.
The walk down to the river was nice and easy and certainly a great spot to sit and relax on the rocks. A beautiful and peaceful spot.
Everything was in perfect order and we would definitely reccomend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable place to stay. Good distance between Plattsburgh and Lake Placid with plenty to see and do in between.
We spent a long weekend at Black Brook Lodge in late March and never wanted to leave! The cabin is so inviting and cozy. I always worry when staying in someone else's home that it might be too full of personal effects or decorated in a style that isn't so appealing to one's own taste but BBL is so clean and lovely and tastefully decorated it combines the best aspects of a cozy home experience (for example the great array of guidebooks, cookbooks, DVDs, and board games) with a hotel experience. Highlights include the goregous bath tubs, chef's quality kitchen appliances, fireplace and trail to river. Oh and basement ping pong table! Close to Lake Placid etc. but was really nice not to be right in the thick of it. You get to be 20-30 minutes from a big town and all sorts of restaurants but you can still feel like you are in the middle of the woods without a person around. We can't wait to come back.
We had the pleasure of staying at the house during the last wintry weekend of the season. It was beautiful and close to skiing at Whiteface. We have stayed at several other rental houses but never one so nicely appointed in every room of the home, from the terrific kitchen to the great selection of DVD's. It really felt like a well-cared for home. Our kids are already asking when we can return.
