This two story little red cottage sits right on the shores of serene and pristine Lake Chateuagay in the northern Adirondacks. It has been recently updated to include a full bathroom, a generator for electricity, and a lovely upstairs bedroom with a dormer overlooking the water. Adjacent to the house is a very private large open lawn area, great for soccer games or volleyball, where there is a boat dock, a swimming raft, and a gradual sandy swimming beach, great for kids.
What an incredible week we had at Lakeside Cottage! It is the perfect family get away…ideal for energetic kids with a mowed meadow large enough for lots of activity…the dock/swimming raft were perfect for fishing, lazing in the sun…we kayaked, and canoed/rowed…lots more fishing…campfires…inviting Adk. chairs and rockers…gazing at the beautiful lake and mountain vista. The grounds were incredible! The cottage had all the amenities of home and more…off the grid…so comfortable with all the sleeping areas to choose from…the sleeping porches were incredible…get away from the bugs (yes, they were a bit brutal at times)…but, had so many options with the numerous porches to lounge…reading, games, listening to the many birds and the haunting but beautiful call of the loons to fall asleep by! Just glorious! Make sure you bring enough food…books, etc…you won't want to leave…it's the perfect get away…rejuvenation…laying on the hammock gazing at the water through the birches…enjoying the breeze…it has so much to offer for everyone! We hit the lotto on this cottage and all its' offerings…paradise found!
This quaint cottage on a large lakefront property is our favourite place to vacation. It allows you to feel the rustic comfort of cottaging yet with the luxury of a vast and private lot spanning the shoreline of a lake which is unbelievably peaceful for its size. Deep in the woods, you can finally unwind to a degree that is almost impossible for those of us used to the hustle and bustle of big city living.With our sixth summer stay recently concluded, we are already looking forward to next year (and so is our dog who sulks for the first few days of being home).
Chateaugay Lake is a great place to get away from it all--no phone, no computers, no pavement--a great private setting on a gorgeous lake known for excellent fishing. The lake is clean and clear, great for canoeing, kayaking, or, if you bring a boat, water skiing and tubing. The house comes with use of a rowboat, canoe, and kayak.
Great day trips include: Montreal (90 miles) , Lake Placid (about an hour), and lots of great hikes and boating outings. The high peaks area of the Adirondacks is about an hour away.
