About Jean Barbara

This cottage was purchased in 1954 by my grandparents and is now owned by myself and my siblings. We have put a lot of love and care into this cottage over the years and plan on passing this little slice of heaven down to our kids.

Loved this camp!

  • 5 of 5
The house is very well maintained. The week we stayed was sunny but pretty chilly so we enjoyed a few fires in the fireplace. The camp is in a nice location on a quiet road. We hiked Hadley Mountain which was about a 45 minute drive, and spent a day in Lake George (1 hr drive). I loved relaxing on the screened in porch and taking in the early morning lake views. The house was stocked with bath towels, toilet paper and other necessities. The kitchen had everything you could think of. We were even able to find a cork screw for the bottle of wine we bought in LG :) Jean was very helpful and easy to get in touch with. We would love to come back!

You won't want to leave this splendid place!

We were so lucky to find this little gem on the lake in the Adirondacks! The minute we walked in and looked out the front - from any viewpoint - our breathing changed and we instantly felt relaxed!

The cottage is everything Jean describes it to be...and more! The incredible views any time of day are just awesome - some of our favorites were the early morning fogs, bright sunny days, cloudy-stormy evenings, and clear starry nights.

Lake fun - right outside our cottage, pleasant, easy drives to the quaint nearby towns and villages to enjoy some local restaurants and shop their offerings were also enjoyed, along with sleeping like babies every night after quiet, soothing fires in the pit.

Jean is a super host and provides information about the area before you arrive, but there is also great info in the cottage to support navigating any day trips you might like to take - if you even want to leave the cottage for all that time!

Great Cottage, equipped with everything you could even think of; Great Location, providing easy access throughout the Adirondack park and local towns; and Great Hospitality to get you ready and oriented while there. All of this was nicely wrapped up into one delightful vacation treat!

Do yourself a favor and don't miss little gem!

We had a lovely time in this gorgeous cottage on the lake. The house is well maintained, the communication was excellent, and we were very happy. We would certainly come back.

What a week end

  • 5 of 5
My Husband and I had a great time celebrating our 25th anniversary at the Kiernan cottage. The place was nicely decorated, clean, well organized and very comfortable. We had everything we needed at our finger tips. The owners were very detailed with the information about the cottage- we felt like they were right there with us. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer, We will definitely be back,

This lakeside cabin has the homely, welcoming feel of a much-loved family retreat. The views - from early morning sunrise to evening mists - were wonderful in all weathers. I say “all” because, although we planned on a summer vacation (it was mid-June after all!), we had a very mixed bag: anything from relentless rain and warm midday sun, to crisp 50 degree nights and strong winds. But this was the place to enjoy it all: in cold and wet weather we lit the indoor log fire, read books looking out onto the view and made s’mores. In the crisp, clear evenings under a blanket of stars we watched the dancing fireflies and lit our own by the shore in the firepit provided. On the fairer days we ventured out for hikes (extensive recommendations are provided by the owner) and took the rowing boat out onto the lake to troll for pickerel. I was touched to find a welcome gift of NY maple syrup and pancake mix, having mentioned to the owner that one of the things I hope to do was source some locally.

The cabin comes with many provisions above and beyond most rentals:

- screened/covered porch (essential in summer to enjoy al fresco dining without worrying about biting insects)
- spacious living area with log fire (plus hardwood and firelighters)
- full kitchen (plus basic condiments)
- outdoor grill and firepit (plus fuel)
- rowing boat, paddle boat and double kayak (plus lifevests), which can be launched from the private dock out front
- wifi and phone with inclusive national calls (essential in this part of the Adirondacks, where cell service is scarce)
- generous supply of handsoap, dishsoap, laundry detergent, toilet roll, etc.

If I had to pick one very slight drawback, it is that the full/double beds are going to feel quite small to many couples. They are very comfortable, however.

Tips:
Bring a book. It’s so relaxing that you may find you get no further than the porch!
Bring fishing tackle to troll on the lake and to fish from the dam or on the river just south of the dam. Live bait is available at the General Store in Wells. Tanners in Speculator sells NY State fishing licences and a selection of tackle.
Northville is a quaint town, worth the trip on a Friday for the waterside farmer’s market (from memory, 2-5pm?), the sweet pies (available Friday to Sunday from Colorful Connections on Bridge Street) and to wander the historic streets.
Speculator has the best supermarket in the area.
Bring your own kindling if you can't use an axe.

Great cottage and beautiful lake

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for one week during an unrivaled hot spell.
Temperatures soared into the 90's. This house is beautifully situated to catch breezes with a spectacular view of the lake and mountains beyond. We think it is the best location on the lake. My husband says PERFECT!! A pleasant surprise is how well-equipped the cottage is and how comfortable the beds are. We had everything we needed and enjoyed everything the property has to offer. Our hosts were attentive and considerate and we will definitely return in the future. A great place and a wonderful week! 6 thumbs way up!!
