Built in the tradition of the Adirondack Great Camps, but with a modern interpretation, the house sits at the end of a private road. The lake house offers comfort, natural and architectural beauty, and a wide variety of outdoor activities year-round.
Large windows throughout the house make the home bright and allow Spectacular views. The heart of the home is a large central great room that contains the living, dining and kitchen spaces. It has a stone fire place and exposed trusses that extend beautifully across this area.The living, dining and kitchen areas feature large picture windows with views of the lake, beach and property.
The kitchen is fully outfitted for a chef. Our home is supplied by brand new deep well with great potable water. A large screen porch with Mahogany floors allow ample room for breezy indoor-outdoor living and entertaining. The porch also has a 9 foot pool table and is the perfect place to spend a lazy summer afternoon. The use of natural materials throughout the house, including stone, wood, and glass, combined with modern finishes, high ceilings, and ample spaces gives the house a light and airy feeling. The home has three bedrooms and a loft, and can comfortably accommodate a large family or small group.
This lake house sits just steps from the beach. Relax on the screened-in porch which overlooks Paradox Lake as you listen to the calls of the loon or watch the blue heron take off in the bay. Swim out to the raft and gaze out onto the lake. Sit on the sandy beach in an Adirondack chair. You will not be disappointed!
The house is at the end of a private dead end road offering quiet privacy. The property boasts a large semi-private sandy beach and plenty of safe sheltered room for swimmers.
The property has several miles of State trails within one mile for hiking, cross country skiing and is located right next to the Snowmobile trail system
Paradox Lake is one of the jewels of the Adirondacks, known for its clean water, natural beauty, wildlife and great fishing. The 3.5 mile long lake is large enough to allow for all forms of water activities but also small enough to offer peace and tranquility.

The majestic Adirondack Mountains are contained within the park, along with thousands of pristine lakes, streams, farms, and towns.

House was so clean and had all the conveniences of home. There was even a highchair for our 1 yr old granddaughter. If you are looking for a private, quiet, but activity-filled vacation, this is the place!! Canoes and kayaks are provided, which we used daily! Paradox is a beautiful lake - very clean and the water was warm. The sandy beach was great fun for our granddaughter. Overall, we had a wonderful stay at Just a Dream!!! We recommend it HIGHLY.
This was the PERFECT vacation! House is immaculate with all the conveniences of home. Canoes and kayaks were so much fun as was the pool table and outdoor ping pong table. Our 1-yr old granddaughter loved the baby swing!!! If you are looking for rest and relaxation then look no further. Beach is quiet and lake is beautiful - we had so much fun swimming, floating in our tubes, boating and just soaking up the sun.
We did venture out to go white water rafting and visit Ft. Ticonderoga - both enjoyable. Nearby Schroon Village is very quaint.
Had a great time quiet, kids happy all the time, swing and lake all we needed no need to go anywhere else. Great place to just re-group after working so hard.
Awsome, We will be back. We spent so much time on the floaty Dock with the kids, we could not get them away to do other planned activities. I still can not play pool to save my life but kicked butt on the ping pong table.
Thank you for sharing your dream with us, we are truly honered.
Our stay here was wonderful!!!! Beautiful, cozy home that was so accomodating to our family!!! Short walk to the beach....kayaks, canoes, everything was awesome!!!! Highly recommend for a relaxing vacation!!!
Thank you does not even come close to what we have to say.
Our family will never forget our first stay in your beutiful home. We hope you will have us again and again.
From the Sunrise to the beach and the family feel, Thank you!
We could spend another week just sitting on your fantastic porch watching the view.
Between the swing and the lake, the kids were never bored.
