Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Lem and Anita's with our two very young sons. We were looking for someplace rustic out of the way, on a nice lake, but modern enough for a winter vacation with two young boys. This was exactly the right place for us. It has a beautiful deck with views of trees and Lake Oseetah. Lem and Anita were available but gave us our space and were eager to help with any requests (diaper genie, advice about unique local options). I can' t recommend this highly enough and they will be our first choice should we return to the area again. Great for kids!

Cozy & Cute!

My sister & I had a girls getaway with my 9 month old daughter at Lem & Anita's gorgeous loft. It is exactly as described and pictured - a beautiful log cabin amidst the incredible mountains, lakes, and forests of the Adirondacks. We were blown away by the scenery! Anita & Lem were super friendly and accommodating, making sure that we had a high chair, pack-n-play, diaper genie, and that all the baby gates were set up. It was off season for the area, but we still had a great vacation, hiking during the day, going to the local breweries, and then at night enjoying the indoor fireplace with some scrabble & wine. Thanks Anita & Lem!

Well-appointed accommodation on tranquil lake near Lake Placid

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 3 nights in mid-October with our three sons - ages 9, 13 and 16. With a lovely view of surrounding trees and Oseetah Lake, the loft is separated from the owners' home, is very well maintained and is a fitting size for our family. The accommodation is about mid-way between Saranac Lake and Lake Placid (total distance of 9 miles), so it's easy to visit the surrounding area. We also enjoyed canoeing and kayaking (provided by owners), and roasting marshmallows on an open fire on the shore of the Lake. The owners are a lovely couple. Perfect!

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked in the door we were not disappointed! It was even better than what the pictures showed. The details of the craftsmenship that was put into the loft was amazing. The location was perfect and so inviting. Anita and Lem have thought of all the amenities that you will need! We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a place to relax and be one with nature!

Fall Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful stay once again. All the comforts of home and I enjoyed every moment despite challenge of weather being colder than I like. Despite weather challenges I had a great stay while attending a family wedding in Lake Placid.

Beautiful Loft Apartment and Excellent Hosts

  • 5 of 5
The Oseetah Lake Loft is a great place to stay in the Lake Placid/Saranac Lake area. Located on Oseetah lake, it is a waterfront property that is very tastefully decorated and comfortable. From Oseetah lake, the Saranac chain of lakes can be reached by kayak or powerboat. Very scenic and peaceful. Rustic elegance is how I would describe this property. Lem and Anita are excellent hosts and the location is perfect for a backwoods getaway that's still close to restaurants, grocery markets and downtown Lake Placid. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet place to get away from it all.
