Perfect family spot for rest, reunion, and fun

  • Submitted: Sep 18, 2013

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.

Great week!

  • Submitted: Aug 6, 2013

We had a great week on Rondaxe Lake. Everything in the house worked just fine; we did have a slow-motion collapse of the outdoor picnic table when we put weight on it (nails pulled out of some rotted/soft wood) so I used one of the garbage cans to prop up one end. We found two pairs of children's socks in the couch when cleaning up, and forgot to take our laundry detergent away (perhaps subsequent renters will find it useful). Finally, I locked the keys in the garage before I remembered that you wanted us to put the chain back in the up position; I apologize for that.

Rented weeks of July 30, 2011 and July 17, 2010

My family has rented Ron Scheidelman’s camp on Rondaxe Lake for a week in each of two years. There were 12 to 15 of us each year.

The lake is beautiful and clean with good swimming, fishing and canoeing in a scenic wilderness setting, with good separation from neighboring camps.

The camp Is clean and well-maintained, with pleasant bathrooms, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms. The kitchen is well-equipped and the dining room area will easily accommodate 16 persons. There is a pleasant living room with nice views of the lake and the Western Hills, (nice sunsets). Groceries, fuel, supplies, services and entertainment are less than 15 minute drive.

It's a fine place for family.
