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.

Our home away from home!

  • 5 of 5
This summer was our second stay at Oseetah Lake Loft. It is a great place to experience the adirondacks, with the comfort of a great bed and well-equiped kitchen. We paddled for miles from the dock and did some great hikes that were only a short distance away. Lem and Anita are wonderful hosts that will give you the insider's scoop on almost anything you could want to do. As long as our kids appreciate the outdoors, we will continue to return to Oseetah lake.

Perfect Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week of nature, comfort, board games and great dvd's. I traveled alone with four kids (15,13 and 10) and we had an amazing time. We enjoyed canoing and fishing, hiking and spending time together. The Loft is gorgeous and practical, Anita and Lem are great hosts and good for me to know they were around.
Perfect location just minutes away from Lake Placid and Saranac. We will defenetly plan another visit to the Loft soon!

Owner's Response: One of the amazing things about Oseetah Lake Loft is how it is so close to everything but it seems so far away. Lake Placid and Saranac Lake are a few minutes by car and yet sitting on the dock or beach you are embraced by the lake and the western High Peaks and serenaded by loons and awed by soaring eagles. It is really a treat.

Totally Beautiful - Exceed any exptations

  • 5 of 5
Hello Guys,
I am sorry this has taken a while. I wanted to say a huge thank you for letting us share your piece of heaven. We all loved staying at the apartment. The space was clean and well kept. Everything you could have possibly needed was close at hand with a lovely kitchen, beautiful and cosy bedrooms and the bathroom was just perfect. We spent our time enjoy the canoes and just messing about on the lake. The property owners are the perfect hosts, available to help and provide plenty of information. The area is perfect and so very peaceful. I would return if I ever have the opportunity.
Was brilliant :) we wondered back to New York City and England very happy people.
Thank you very much for making our break to the woods very perfect indeed.

I'd recommend this property for rest and relaxation and adventure - but R&R is not listed on the choices.

Lovely spot!

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed out time at the Loft. It is very well-appointed, the beds are comfortable; we couldn't have asked for more. The owners were so friendly and helpful in suggesting local hiking spots depending on how long we wanted to go, and challenge level! It is so close to Lake Placid too for picking up groceries and taking in the Olympic sites.
Spending time out on the dock in the sun was a real highlight - the Lake is beautiful and not busy at all so great for kayaking. We are thinking about a fall trip back to Oseetah Lake!

If you're looking for an outstanding Adirondack getaway there is no better place than this. This rental is even more beautiful than the pictures display. There are many things to do from hiking, fishing, kayaking, or just relaxing by a private lake side night time fire. You couldn't ask for more personable or accommodating hosts than Lem and Anita. This is an opportunity not to be missed if it is available. We will certainly be returning.

Owner's Response: We are always glad to see how quickly our guests discover this remarkable place. Many have also seen eagles and osprey and loons.
It is an easy place to love. We fell in love with it 8 years ago and enjoy seeing our guests enjoy it as well.
