Our cozy chalet style home has everything you could want to enjoy a great escape to the Adirondacks. Large open floor plan with center fireplace, full kitchen with bar area, knotty pine interior, sliding glass doors leading to a large outside deck, nice wooded area with fire pit. Our dock located 200 yards away has a great sitting and swimming area right on 4th Lake. The dock is great for swimming/kayaks/canoes. (TV, VCR, W/D, phone, WiFi, charcoal grill, outside fire pit). Shopping and restaurants in in the quaint towns of Old Forge and Inlet are minutes away. This area offers activities for all ages. The camp has all the amenities of home but feels like a world away. Come and enjoy your stay in this beautiful and peaceful home.
Winter highlights include McCauley Mountain 15 minutes away, Gore Mountain 40 minutes away. This area offers the best snowmobiling in the east. We are located just across Rte. 28 from sledding trail #5. You can certainly ice skate right off our dock on 4th lake as well. In the summer, there is boating, kayaking and canoeing on the pristine Fulton Chain, all accessible from our dock. There are many beautiful hiking trails for all abilities and the water park at Enchanted Forest is surely a hit with the younger folks. If restaurants and shopping are what you like, there are plenty of great restaurants and shopping in nearby Old Forge and Inlet. For the golfer, Inlet Golf Club is 5 minutes away. The Adirondack Museum is a great rainy day activity for all as well as the Scenic Railroad which is especially beautiful in the Fall. The spring brings the most fantastic whitewater rafting in the east. So, whatever season, the Adirondacks have something for everyone!
As of 2/20/2015 the property is listed for sale by Timm Associates, Old Forge, NY
We purchased this property because of the privacy, beauty and serenity of its' location. We wanted something that felt like it was "away from it all" yet close enough to amenities. This house covers all of the bases with 4 en-suite bedrooms, full kitchen, wrap around deck, large side yard with fire-pit.
The most unique benefit to this home is that we own lake rights to Fourth Lake. What that means is that while the house is not located on the lake, we own a parcel of land that includes a 20Ft. dock on Fourth Lake. The dock belongs to us and is not shared with anyone else. The lake is 300 short yards away down a private road. Cherokee Rd. has under 10 homes on it, so this area of the lake is rarely crowded.
The Shawnee property was the perfect place for a week-long getaway. I booked this house for a group of 10 friends, and it could not have accommodated us better. The rooms were exactly as described (each bedroom had its own bathroom -- super bonus!), the layout was cozy, and there were no structural/electrical/plumbing issues at all. There is ample seating in the kitchen for meals, and lots of couch space for enjoying company (or TV -- cable and WiFi were nice to have in the middle of nowhere!). We enjoyed waking up every morning and hanging out on the porch, or setting up hammocks between the trees to enjoy a book. It was so peaceful, and though there are neighbors up and down the dirt road, all you can hear is nature.
The property is not directly on the lake, but the short walk was never an issue. The lake is gorgeous, warm, and you can swim or wade off of the dock that belongs to the property owners. Bring floats! If you get the chance definitely check out the rental companies nearby to take a pontoon boat out for the day! We so enjoyed exploring the Fulton chain lakes from Fourth Lake all the way to First Lake, where Old Forge is.
Overall, our stay was incredible. The property owner, Christina, was so helpful and quick to respond to questions. There was no lengthy process to rent and it was very reliable. I would absolutely rent again, and I highly recommend this house to potential renters! You will have a well-deserved week of R&R.
Incredible property, very private yet perfect location. Every thing you need is in the home or right up the road yet you feel like you are miles away from it all. Bring a wildlife trailcamera you won't believe who visits the cabin. I believe the owners have some of the pictures. The deer visit through out the day. We had a large group of all ages everyone had a great time every day. By far the best Deal in the Fulton Chain for large groups. We like to go to new places every summer, but we will be back here in a few years for sure. The owners are great and the manager was always helpful just a phone call away if you have any concerns.
