Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful time at Shangri-La. Our week long visit was just as the name suggests. The house was commodious and the location tranquil. The house was neat and clean, with all amenities including washer, dryer and 2 additional refrigerators which was great. Bathrooms were spacious and plentiful, as were the bedrooms. Shrangri-La was a perfect place to accommodate a crowd like ours.



The environs were pristine. Dock and beach great. We all fished off the dock in the mornings and swam in the afternoon. My cousin caught 3 fish, small and large mouth bass and a sunny, in the rowboat you provided. BBQs on the large patio at night and listening to the loons and star gazing were terrific.



Nearby, Old Forge has all your needs and attractions for vacation. We rented a canoe and 2 man kayak at Tickners, per your suggestion, they were the least expensive for rental with free delivery and pick up. Also they were kind enough to pick up late on our last day. Rondaxe Lake was perfect for canoeing and kayaking, no big motor boats to contend with and very friendly to all water activities.



We highly recommend Shangri-La as a perfect family/friends spot for rest, reunion, and fun.
