Historically, a traditional Adirondack Camp brought family and friends together for the tranquility and peace of these impressive mountains and lakes. Our Camp on Friends Lake in the Lake George Region is no different, hosting gatherings of all sizes. The living space is very comfortable serving up to 7 people, including children, with a large stone fireplace, dining area, 1 bath, kitchen, front porch, and living room area that has seasonal views of the lake through the thick trees that populate this quiet parcel of land. There are four bedrooms with each sleeping up to two people (2 queen, 1 full, and 2 twin beds in all). Each season is a special treat in the Lake George Region of the Adirondacks: winter skiing at Gore Mountain, fall leaf-watching, summer swimming, hiking, local tourism, and boating.
A beautiful private sandy beach for swimming, picnics, boating, and grilling is available only a short 5 minute walk from the Camp. Children should always be supervised, but for bigger kids (and adults) a floating dock is anchored a short swim from shore for deep diving.
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay. The camp is cozy, comfortable and clean with everything we needed. The lake is a short walk away, beautiful and quiet. We used the canoe to explore the lake and saw turtles and heron. The nearby caves made for a great afternoon activity. We finished our day with a fire outside in the fire pit. All in all a relaxing get away.
Bright 4 bedroom camp with a great fireplace that we used all weekend! There is a beautiful and quiet wooded area outside, and quick walk takes you to a private beach. It's a short drive to antiques, restaurants, shopping, and groceries. We found a place giving maple syrup tours and serving pancakes! This place is great, we had a blast! Definitely will rent this camp again!
We had no trouble finding the camp; the lock box was an easy way to provide entry and also not worry about losing the key. Much about the place is reminiscent of our childhood experiences - a sprawling living room with fireplace, multiple bedrooms, the lake a few minutes away on foot, a canoe to explore the lake.
What was different about the place was the notable artistic touches; the arrangement of objects on the mantle, the
choice of books on the shelves. We had fun on arrival just scoping out the simple treasures from nature and older times.
The place is clean and the kitchen well-supplied. We did most of our own cooking so adequate pots etc. were essential.
The weather was fantastic; we paddled on the lake, ate our lunches in the sunny backward. We really only started to explore the area. We did a little antiquing, climbed a mountain about 45 minutes away, and visited the Natural Stone Bridge Center with its amazing rock formations. We ate at Basil and Wicks in North Creek - loved the food and the TV's in the bar. The larger restaurant space was doing a booming business. The nearby Friend's Lake Inn was tempting (and within walking distance) but we did not go there this time round.
We intend to return and perhaps go horseback riding at a nearby stable and also turn our attention to the Lake George scene.
For those with small children or health worries we can attest to the excellence of the Warrensburg Health Center open on Sundays and about 20-25 minutes away.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
The lake though cool was inviting. The countryside warm and inviting.The restaurant in town was wonderful.what one might experience in an inviting countryside town. Can't wait to revisit when the temperature is more enticing...
My husband and I were looking for a quick, spontaneous few days in the mountains. We took a chance on place near Lake George figuring it would give us access to some of the activities in Town but also the privacy of being away. This camp is a definite must in the summer and fall months. Access to the lake is only a few minutes walk down the hill. In fact we could see the lake from the window. The owner was very accommodating and even allowed us to shorten our stay without penalties. Very friendly and courteous. The space is clean and comfortable with plenty of room. The Ice Cream Parlor in town was delightful and open for lunch or dinner. Plenty of outdoor activities in the area if that interests you. I want to come back to see the summer fun. Safe bet!
The quiet community of Chestertown is home to shops, restaurants, horseback riding, art galleries, supermarket, bank, and more. Lake George and its bustling village is just 20 minutes away. Conveniently located off Interstate 87 within the Lake George Region of the Adirondacks where restaurants, attractions, and mountain activities are in abundance. Remain at the Camp and you have a relaxing Adirondack escape to remember for years to come.
