Edwards House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8-10, lakefront

A perfect house for your classic Adirondack lake family vacation. We are now accepting inquires for Summer 2015. Take advantage of 2014 rates by booking prior to 12/31/14. Swim, fish, sunbathe and boat all day. Relax around the campfire at night. Our house sits on the north shore of the lake, giving it a spectacular, length of lake view, southern exposure (sun all day) and a sandy bottom (no weeds or drop-offs). Trout Lake is rated one of the most pristine lakes in New York State with outstanding fishing.

Winter is a great time for a romantic weekend get away, family/friend reunion or school break. The beauty of winter is on full display, with the lake providing opportunities for skating, skiing, ice fishing (great way to catch a Lake Trout) snowmobiling (additional, dedicated trails nearby) and moonlit walks (and if you’re lucky, perhaps the Northern Lights). Inquire regarding special rates.

This four season home was built in 1997 and is in excellent condition. The front of the house faces the lake and includes a covered porch to enjoy the view and listen to the loons. The back of the house has property that overlooks a protected bay. Most of the rooms have water views, including an enclosed, three season side porch with a “pub table” and chairs. The back yard is big enough for family fun.

A three bedroom, two bath house with an open floor plan, all rooms are decorated in the Adirondack style. The kitchen is fully equipped and features an island for extra counter space. Enjoy a family meal around the large country style dining room table. There is a first floor master bedroom with a queen bed and sliding glass doors that open to the lake. The master bedroom also includes a full bath, making this house easily accessible for individuals with mobility issues. One upstairs bedroom has a queen bed. The other upstairs bedroom has two twins and a bunk bed; a perfect room for the kids, or a second family. There is a full bath on the second floor as well. Additionally, a pull-out queen sofa in the living room and a double futon in the three season porch provides extra sleeping space if needed.

The house is located on a peninsula, giving it water access for swimming and fishing from the front, and a sheltered bay in the rear of the property including a slip for your own boat (by arrangement). Included with our house: a fishing boat with outboard motor, trolling motor and fish-finder, canoe, paddle boat, kayak, satellite TV, WiFi internet connection, sand box, gas grill and fire pit all ready for your use. Firewood is included. Home has a drilled well (rather than lake water), and is equipped with a dishwasher and washer and dryer (no piles of laundry to do after your vacation). All linens and towels are provided. Just pack your clothes and food and come enjoy a vacation you will never forget!

In 2012 the lake’s boat launch was closed to the public, making the lake, in essence, a private lake. A deep, clean, clear spring-fed lake (making it an excellent trout habitat) the large, main part of the lake facilitates water skiing, tubing and sailing, while the many islands and bays provided sheltered waterways for canoeing and kayaking. Medium in size, the lake warms quickly in the spring, reaches at water temperature of 80 degrees by mid-summer, is easily navigated by the novice boater. A stunningly beautiful lake, modest weekend activity on the water gives way to great quiet and serenity during the week. You won’t believe how few people there are with whom you’ll share the lake.

For larger parties (18 to 20) this house may be rented with the neighboring house (owned by my son). Please visit for more information, and contact me about possibilities.

Four Seasons of Fun.

In Autumn, come view the glorious fall foliage which rings the lake, or make a day trip to the high-peaks region of the Adirondack Park (about an hour’s drive time). The home has satellite TV and is the perfect spot for a football weekend with old friends. Spacious dining area and modern kitchen make this a great alternative for your Thanksgiving or Holiday family gathering (with dishwasher to boot!). A newly installed gas fireplace/stove creates a warm and cozy place to enjoy nature, one’s family or some simple peace and quiet

Spring comes slowly to the North Country. We all wait with eager anticipation for “ice out,” and the arrival of buds on the trees and the running of the sap. Trout Season opens, regionally, on April 1st. However, special NYS DEC fishing regulations allow early angling on Trout Lake; with the still cold water temperatures, this is the best time to fish for Lake Trout (my next door neighbor and son, “Rev. Mike,” a licensed NYS Fishing Guide, caught a 17 pound, 39 inch laker 25 feet from shore in about 15 feet of water).

Late Spring/Early Summer is the absolute best fishing time. Long, sunny days warm the water and bring the Rainbow Trout to the surface. Even in May the brave can enjoy a brisk swim. Come June, the water is quite warm enough for swimming and water activities. At this time of year the lake itself is stunningly quiet; a perfect time for kayaking.

Bugs. When considering a northern forest or Adirondack vacation, one must always be mindful of a frank consideration of “bugs.” Situated out on a point, away from dense woods and typically enjoying a lake breeze, Loon Lodge is mercifully (mostly) free from pesky mosquitos and black flies. We do have a 7 to 10 day hatch of black flies and some mosquitos in the Spring. However, the balance of the summer is almost bug free, with the occasional evening mosquito. In five years, we have never had to use any bug repellent (really!).

Perfect in July and Amazing In September!!

  • 5 of 5

We have had the pleasure of staying at this camp for two years in a row. The first year we stayed in July and the second year we stayed in September. Both weeks were perfect. The location makes the view spectacular, and at night the sound of the water and the breeze makes for a peaceful nights sleep. While enjoying your coffee on the deck the next morning you will see fish jump and if your lucky spot the loons. Lots of room to entertain guests!, Cook outs, campfires and memories. The camp is clean and lake is clear. We loved swimming here as you get tons of sun all day long making the water feel refreshing. Miles of hiking trails in the nearby Wolf Lake State Forrest offer plenty of hiking options that lead you to three secluded lakes with great views. Trail head parking just off the Trout lake road on the Sam day road.

Owner's Response: Glad you have enjoyed your stays at Loon Lodge. Thank you for the Hiking information. See you in September! Nancy

Superb spot for foliage.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two weeks at the house during the Fall foliage and this is a gem of a spot! The view of the lake (and loons) were phenomenal and looking out the window was a calming meditation unto itself. The master bedroom feels like its right on the water and the view could be the best on the lake. The rental was in immaculate condition, tastefully decorated, and even had a full spice selection for our fish. In other words, we didn't need to bring anything to feel like we were already at home. The living room has a nice gas fireplace next to a comfy glide rocker that is a nice touch. The stay was restorative and very peaceful all around. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking for that perfect retreat spot in the Adirondacks.

Owner's Response: We are glad you were able to witness Trout Lake at its best. Fall is fantastic with the foliage complimenting the beauty of the Lake. The Loons are a wonderful added bonus! Thank you for sharing your experience. Nancy

This was our second trip to the lake with my husband and our two children ages 10 & 15. My two brother-in-laws and their families (with kids ages 6-10) joined us. The house is absolutely wonderful with easy access for my husband who uses a manual wheelchair. I searched everywhere for a private, relaxing spot on a lake where getting down to the water would not be an issue. I am so fortunate to have found such a wonderful cottage on such a beautiful lake! The owners went above and beyond to make sure we had the appropriate accommodations for the wheelchair. The perfect spot whether you want to relax and connect with family and friends, or be active swimming, boating, fishing, hiking, kayaking etc... The kids were occupied from morning to night and we all enjoyed making dinners on the grill and eating on the dock. Campfires at night made for a perfect ending to the day. The house has all the supplies readily available for all these activities. Even a rainy day is relaxing spent inside the house since it is well kept, cozy and comfortable.

Location is great to take a beautiful drive to the Thousand Islands for a day.

I would recommend this cottage on the lake to anyone looking to create memories with their vacation that will last a lifetime! I can't wait to get back!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife, three daughters and four grandkids rented this property in August 2013 and had a wonderful time. Calling it a "camp" does not do it justice. It is a beautifully maintained lake house with all the amenities of home, albeit with a scenic lakefront setting. We had use of 2 kayaks, a canoe and a fishing boat, There are also toys and a lakefront sandbox for the kids. The owner's son, who has the camp next door, helped tremendously in making this a memorable vacation.He let us use a small paddle boat that my 5 year old granddaughter loved to paddle around. He also was kind enough to show me the best spots on the lake to fish , the best tackle to use, took the kids tubing, and provided kindling when we needed it to make samores in the evening. .The owner and family are very considerate and easy to work with, and are genuinely interested in ensuring an enjoyable vacation, I recommend this property highly.

Winter Wonderland in the Adirondacks

  • 5 of 5

My husband and our two teenagers spent a wonderful winter weekend at this cottage on Trout Lake and we couldn't have been happier. The house is beautiful, clean, and comfortable, and so close to the lake you can almost touch it. The view is spectacular. We hiked, went cross-country skiing on the frozen lake, and enjoyed the beautiful winter scenery. I highly recommend this pretty cottage in winter or summer if you want to get away from it all. You won't be disappointed. (Jennifer, West Deptford, NJ)

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at this beautiful house for a winter get-away. The house was warm and cozy and we eagerly settled in to enjoy the lake in winter. Cross-country skiing and ice fishing are just two of the activities that were available for us to enjoy. The kitchen had any equipment needed to make our meals and there was plenty of space for our family for sleeping and relaxing. One of the best parts was waking up and seeing the peaceful lake right outside the bedroom window. We would eagerly rent this house again for a winter retreat.
