The resident owners are avid hikers, canoeists, X-country skiers and nature photographers and enthusiasts who love to share their years of knowledge about hiking trails and waterways.

Lem and Anita Hegwood purchased this lodge in 2005

We selected Oseetah Lake because it enjoys easy access to Lake Placid and Saranac Lake as well as providing a quiet retreat with world-class views of the High Peaks across the lake. Our favorite outdoor activities, cross country skiing, hiking and canoeing, are at our door step.

Miles of world-class canoeing from lakefront dock

Direct access to canoe/kayak routes on the Saranac chain of Lakes

Mountain views from the new lakeside deck

Morning serenades by loons

Wonderful Stay

We had a wonderful time at the Oseetah Loft. This place is everything it purports to be--cozy, beautiful views, amazing access to wilderness right outside your door and friendly and helpful owners who will give you your space but are available for questions. While I was here in the winter, I imagine it is great in any season. I highly recommend this place!

Cozy Comfortable Christmas Retreat

Loved the Loft. It totally lived up to my expectations and the owners were wonderful hosts. I loved being urrounded by trees and snow and pure crisp cold air of the Adirondacks. It was a perfect place for spending Christmas holidays with my family. Views of frozen lake gorgeous especially as the sun set behind the mountains. I loved it so much I plan to return in the Fall.

Our stay at the Oseetah Lake Loft was awesome. Anita & Lem were exceptional hosts who made us feel very welcome and at home. They had great suggestions on activities and places to dine. The view of the lake and the mountains from the dock was absolutely stunning. We enjoyed canoeing/kayaking in the lake, hiking, sightseeing (High Gorge, Olympic Ski Jump, Lake Placid) & simply taking in all the beauty of the area. I look forward to returning to the "Loft".

Fantastic Weekend on Oseetah Lake

We truly enjoyed our stay at your beautiful two bedroom guest lodge. Perfect for two couples on a weekend get away. Wonderful dock area with great access to Oseetah Lake for canoeing and kayaking! The views here are just breathtaking! The lodge was very spacious and just immaculate, with views of the lake from the deck as well. We had everything we needed, so many little touches that made this guest lodge very special. The location was just perfect, right between Lake Placid and Saranac Lake areas. Many thanks to Anita and Lem who were wonderful to rent from and really informative about the area activities. It was a pleasure meeting you both. We really enjoyed our stay!

Anniversary Getaway

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 24, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
In a word - "Awesome". The loft was all we could ask for. Comfortable, roomy and well equipped and beautiful surroundings. Sitting on the deck was very relaxing and the view great. Same for dock and deck on the lake which was just a short walk away. Though we didn't use them, kayaks and canoes were available to us. We did greatly enjoy our walks along the roadway into the loft and our ventures off into the surrounding woods. Finally, having the loft owners on property was beneficial in that they were able to guide us to area sites and restaurants. To top it off, they were very nice people who genuinely cared about our visit and comfort.

As for the area, what is not to like. We are not difficult hikers but there were plenty of easy trails around to take in the beauty of the area. We visited High Falls Gorge, Paul Smith's VIC, Whiteface Mtn, etc. A diamond in the rough for us was visiting the Olympic Ski Jump site and riding the chair lift to the top. Anyway, we found plenty to do and enjoy. We hope to return sometime.

Owner's Response: We are very fortunate that Oseetah Lake Loft is at the same time so close to everything but feels very far away from anything. Our guest feel at home and that's how we like it!
