Wonderful peaceful setting.

  • 5 of 5

My kids, husband and I had such a relaxing week there. Everything was exactly as the listing stated. We went out on the rowboat and canoe three times a day. The water is clean so you can swim. The lake is small enough so there are no motor boats allowed which meant there was no noise. We live in Manhattan so we really appreciate the clam natural setting. The house is very cozy and the game room downstairs was perfect for my kids. I definitely recommend this house.

The Perfect Get-A-Away

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for the perfectly peaceful vacation spot … look no further. The landlords, Frank and Lori, are one of the friendliest and hospitable people you will ever meet! Located in Lorton Lake NY, this waterfront A-frame cabin is the focal point of the area. The cabin sits in a wholesome, picturesque area where the fishing is great and the air is crisp. We always love vacationing here because it great spot to recharge and make great memories.

Perfect Mix of Relaxation and Activity

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great stay at this property on Lorton Lake. Frank was very responsive from my very first email inquiring about the property. He and his wife keep the property extremely clean and well maintained. It is obvious that they take a lot of pride in their lake house. The area was so peaceful and quiet and was a perfect break from every day life. We loved being able to walk down to the lake several times throughout the day and just sit on the private dock, or take one of the 3 boats out for a little while. The house was the perfect size for my family of 3 and we easily could have fit several others. We appreciated all of the small amenities offered such as soap, paper towels, toilet paper, cooking spices, etc as we have stayed at other rentals and have had to provide our own. Frank and Lori are very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and provided a big packet of detailed information in the house that was very useful throughout our stay. We took advantage of nearby hiking at Salmon River Falls and took a couple of longer trips within the area to Sandy Island Beach on Lake Ontario and to the Thousand Islands/Bolt Castle. If you have young kids, be sure to check out Old McDonald's Farm in Sacket's Harbor, which was recommended to us by Frank after we arrived. Our 3 year old loved it! Even on the one rainy day we had, there was plenty to do with the downstairs game room, and a variety of movies offered. If you are looking for a relaxing, slow paced trip, we couldn't recommend this place enough.

Pictures do this BEAUTIFUL property NO JUSTICE, it is truly a quiet peaceful haven from the chaos of everyday life!!! We were soooooooooooo happy the moment we arrived till the moment we left. The house is imaculate - clean to every single corner. The owner puts his heart and soul into giving you the best HOMEAWAY has to offer. I have been using HOMEAWAY for over 10 years, and this ranks up there with one of the nicest places i have rented, this and an amazing home in St. John, USVI - THAT is how nice it is. You have a huge deck overlooking the water, every morning we had coffee and read to the silence over the lake. you are just able to get back to a sane place at this cottage - i think i should come here every few months just to settle my soul. We had 3 small kids in our group who also loved the place. The game room is big and fun for all, including adults. We spent very little money, making this a perfect budget vacation as well, as the kitchen is well stocked and we really just wanted to relax. There is a small beach a couple hundered feet from the home where the kids LOVED to swim and play. it was great for the adults too. The dock off of the house is wonderful, my 9 year old caught his first fish there, one a big bass that we happily enjoyed for dinner. Thank you SO MUCH Frank and Lori for a vacation i will remember and cherish. CANNOT WAIT to come back!

A Vacation Spot You Won't Want To Miss!

  • 5 of 5

This place is everything it says and more. We love Lorton Lake and are looking forward to returning for our 4th time!! It’s a wonderful escape from the craziness we all call life. The cottage is spacious, welcoming and packed with amenities. The game room is an added bonus too. The deck is large and very inviting nestled in the trees with the rays of sunshine peeking thru. There are always birds and squirrels to keep your attention. The peace and serenity of this lake is something you don’t come across every day. The lake offers some challenging fishing at times for the beginner and the seasoned fisherman as well. We have one of each! We enjoy coffee on the deck or at the water’s edge in the morning and usually spend most of our day out on the water whether it be fishing, paddleboating or sunbathing. Our evenings are usually spent cooking dinner on the grill and at the water’s edge around the campfire. The sunsets are beautiful and the colors glisten across the water. We also enjoy walks around the lake and often stop along the way to purchase the local vegetables and flowers for our stay. The owners, Frank and Lori are wonderful people. They are very helpful and full of knowledge of the area. There are many things to do within a short distance, but we enjoy this property so much we usually just stay put except to go out for an occasional dinner or do some shopping. My 20 year old daughter loves it too. We can’t even think about taking our vacation at Lorton Lake without her tagging along for the week or for a few days!!! I guess the only thing left to say is that you will not be disappointed.
