October has some Prime Leaf Peeping. Loon Lake Landing is located 20 miles north of Saranac Lake and 28 miles to LakePlacid/Whiteface Mountain in Franklin County NY . The cabin has three bedrooms and one bath and is located on 2.5 acres. The beautiful waterfront area and private dock provide unobstructed access to Loon Lake . 'The Landing' is one of only a few properties on Loon Lake that has a large beach area. The views at Loon Lake Landing go on for miles. Whiteface Mountain and other 'High Peaks,' are just a peek out the door or window! While we offer many of the modern conveniences to which, we have all become accustomed, we hope you choose to instead take advantage of the many awesome (and FREE) activities right outside the doors of the camp. A 2-person canoe, a paddle boat, a row boat and a tandem kayak for paddling around Loon Lake. There is a dock for swimming and fishing. Go fishing on Loon Lake for Large Mouth bass, Small Mouth and Northern Pike
On site: We've made the following improvements so far and have more planned for the 2011 season. We added Direct TV, Internet Access and a Samsung HDTV, we improved the view immensely (pictures to follow but the good ones will not be until spring) we are making a path from the stone chimney down to the lake, the old chain fence by the lake is gone and I am replacing that with a handmade ADK style twig post and rail white birch fence, we added a peddle boat, a front loading washer/dryer, laminate flooring in the kitchen, newer lp gas stove to replace old cook stove (we will miss the cook stove dearly,) all new quilts in bedrooms with loons and other ADK scenes, ADK table in the front porch made of one large slab of pine, ADK area rugs in front porch, locally made bar stools and other general improvements to the cabin and grounds. Stay tuned for more improvements.....just when you thought Loon Lake Landing couldn't get any better, it did!

The Summer months are filling up fast so don't delay, contact us today. Spring and Fall are really amazing so we hope more families can take advantage of these months this year. We actually prefer Spring and Fall up at the camp but maybe that is because the cabin is always fully rented in the summer months. The air is crisp and clean, birds are chirping, animals are scurrying everywhere and there is a special feeling of peacefulness in the spring and fall and we hope you will take advantage of our amazing location, cabin and grounds.
Golf: It's about 35 minutes to Saranac Lake golf course.
Ski: Whiteface Mountain is about 40 minutes away and so is Titus Mountain. Cascade cross country ski center is between Saranac Lake and Lake Placid and is about 35 minutes from the camp. We have a 2 week minimum in the Winter and have a $150 surcharge for propane on top of the rent. The view from the camp is of Whiteface!!
