Built in 1895, this classic Adirondack Camp sits on the eastern shore of beautiful Indian Lake and has incredible views of the lake and Owls Head Mountain, along with spectacular sunsets that defy description. The waterfront is sandy, weed-free and goes out gradually, yet with plenty of depth to tie up a boat to the large, sturdy dock. A canoe and paddle boat are included.
You won't find any drywall here. With hardwood walls and floors throughout, you get the sense of what it was like vacationing in the Adirondacks when Grover Cleveland was President, yet with all the amenities of an updated kitchen and modern plumbing, including a classic claw-foot tub.
With 4 bedrooms, it sleeps 10 in beds and 2 on a futon in the screened and glassed porch.
This is the perfect place to get away and unplug from the wired world. There is no TV, Internet, or Phone, so bring your 3-G devices if you must connect. There is lots of fun to be had enjoying the lake, swimming, fishing, evening camp fires and S'mores,hiking in the mountains and on countless trails in the region and when it's time to come in, playing games, catching up on conversations, telling stories, staring into the fire, or simply relaxing with a good book. It's amazing how you can connect without a device.
Come to Kilburn Lodge and create memories that will last a lifetime.
Our stay on Indian Lake was magical. The mountain views and sunsets over the lake were like paintings. The house was rustic wood so you felt right at home tucked into the tall trees and mountain tops. The amenities, dish washer, washer and dryer, brand new kitchen and bathrooms were comforting to us city folk. The house included a paddle boat, fire pit, grill and a canoe which we used almost every day. The property was exactly as described and very clean and tidy when we arrived. The property manager was very helpful with facilitating our stay at Kilborn Lodge as were the owners who owned other property on the lake. We hiked Debar Mountain as well as Owl's head mountain and kayaked everyday on the lake. Our friends who gathered from New York, Buffalo, Philadelphia and Boston found Kilborn lodge to be the perfect meeting place. We loved it so much we stayed an extra day. I hope we can make it an annual or semi annual pilgrimage.
