Chateaugay Lake Lodge Rental Photos and Description
5 bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths (tub only), sleeps 12-20

Step back in time and enjoy the rustic charm of FDR's attorney's classic lakefront Adirondack retreat. Resurrect quality family time beneath the gas-fired lights without the distractions electricity brings. (Propane lights, stove, refrigerator, hot water keep you comfortable). Spacious private lodge on pristine Upper Lake Chateaugay. 5 large bedrooms (sleeps up to 20), living room with massive stone fireplace, large dining room, eat-in kitchen, screened-in porch, gradual sandy beach, swimming raft, lawn slopes down to waterfront (about 200 ft).

Our family bought this place in 1969, and has continued to come every summer. Started as my father and mother and the four of us, then added grandparents and cousins, and now there are 10 grandchildren, almost all grown up themselves. It is the place the cousins who live all over the country gather each year, and is the reason they are all close.

Karen Heath purchased this lodge in 1969

This is a magical place that is truly away from it all.

Lovely unspoiled lake, and the lack of electricity is a step back in time that we all really appreciate. Spacious and authentic.

I still dream of Camp Heath

This is the absolute best vacation my family has ever taken. This property is private and serene, no cell phone service and no electricity allowed for the purest form of relaxation and family time. I went with my husband, 3 kids, and my sister and her husband and we could have easily fit 3-4 more families. Do not be scared off by no electricity- propane lighting throughout and propane stove/oven and refrigerator are all you need, it didn't even feel like we were "roughing" it... It was more than we could have hoped for, can't think of a single complaint... this place is like some best kept secret that only a few have realized- there are several families who have gone there every year now for a really long time... once you go nothing else compares... we went the last week of the summer in 2009 and I guarantee my kids and I mention it at least weekly... now that we live in Wisconsin I would still consider making the 26 hour drive every summer to experience camp Heath again...

The week at the lake was all and more than I could have hoped for! I celebrated my 60th year with family and friends at Heath Camp. Everyone loved the house with its Adirondack character and plenty of room. We enjoyed walks in the woods, play with dogs, swims in the lake, Scrabble and chess matches on the deck, fishing and boating, fabulous dinners by the livingroom fire on cool evenings, appetizers on the porch, easy car explorations to Lake Placid, and all sitting around the campfire outside in the evening, laughing and remembering the day's activities. I can't think of a better place to celebrate life. It was simply the best.
Thank you Heath family!

My family and friends have enjoyed staying at the Heath Camp many times. I would recommend this to anyone who likes the outdoors with peace & quiet and the beauty of the Adirondack mountains, along with the families Glica, & Rados we will never forget the great times, fishing, and great suppers after a long day of enjoying the beauty of this lodge. I'm not sure of our dogs Carley,& Clancy or us enjoyed it more. Rent a boat and explore the beauty of the Lake Chateaguay.

It's been a month now since we have been at the Heath camp and my family and I just can't stop talking about how much we loved it there. We had 14 people in our group and just had a blast. We're already talking about going back next year! If anyone is up there our family is the bat on the wall Hope you have as much fun as we did but if you plan to stay at Heath you can't help but to have a blast. Thanks Heath family =)

Many of our renters come year after year to enjoy this beautiful rustic family vacation spot, and all that I have spoken with this year have thoroughly enjoyed their stays. I am putting this comment in to make sure this guestbook works! Please add to the book if you've been to our house! Karen
