Lovely beach and nice small cabin
Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay at Billabong. Owner, Patty, and her father, Peter were terrific, accommodating hosts. Beautiful private setting well located within the Adirondacks. The beach is a walk down short driveway and across pretty quiet two-lane road. Beach is AMAZING--private, sandy, little nook, good for swimming. We used canoe and kayak (float no longer available). Lake is gorgeous. You could spend a week just playing, reading, and boating off the beach.
House is a pictured. Small, but comfy. Adequate kitchen with a nice gas stove. All of the beds are good quality. Closets for hanging a few things. Pull-out couch is high quality--comfortable, firm mattress--not your typical pull-out. Nice to have a full-sized washer and dryer, and sizable basement for temporarily storing wet things.
Some small caveats--not major and didn't detract for us at all:
(1) not a great place if you're unsteady on your feet. Stairs to the house are oddly placed around the side and you have to walk up a gravel stairway to get to them--kind of inconvenient for carrying things up and down. Stairs down to beach also require a bit of maneuvering. Again, totally fine for us, but something to be aware of.
(2) no table for sit-down dinner. Inside, there's a tiny table that seats three, outside small table for four. Outside there's a bunch of other seating and some end tables, so we could sit around and eat that way.
(3) Related to #2: this is not a great place for rainy days. The sitting room is small, minimal seating in the house, only a small table. TV is smallish and quite old (the kind with VHS integrated, no modern inputs).
Overall, a terrific place and good value for lakefront rental. Town of Schroon and the lake are great, and you can't go wrong when you have responsive and helpful hosts!
Lovely cottage with a nice private beach. We had a wonderful stay!
Nice little cottage on the lake.
I rented this cottage as a retirement present for myself. Friends and family stayed different nights and we all enjoyed it. It was the perfect size for us and a great location. The inflatable float was no longer available but we didn't miss it.
Great Getaway for Our Getaway
My family used Billabong to sleep while enjoying the Adirondacks with our extended family at a nearby camp. It was delightful, from the cozy beach to the flexibility of sleeping accommodations.
the perfect getaway spot
This cottage was the perfect place to stay in order to enjoy the beautiful Adirondack Mt region. The owner made booking the property very easy, and was very helpful, once we got there, in providing us the information we wanted regarding good hikes in the area, places to eat, etc. The cottage is neat, clean, and comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised that I had a great view of the lake, even while sitting in the living room. When the weather was warm, we enjoyed the comfortable seating on the deck. The people we met in the general store, on the hiking trails and in the nearby restaurants were very friendly, making the trip all the more enjoyable. This cottage provided all the comforts of home in a peaceful wilderness environment. I highly recommend it.
The Billabong Cottage was a lovely place to stay! We took family walks every evening, had a blast on the private beach, loved the cute General Store, and settled right in for our week of vacation. Even the flat grassy yard area turned out to be such fun for our son! Thanks for a very easy rental transaction and for stopping in to check on us. Great Place!
