Adirondack Lakefront Retreat on the Great Sacandaga

A great family retreat

  • 5 of 5

My extended family of 28 gathered for the sixth year in a row at the Adirondack Lakefront Retreat and once again had a fantastic time. Plenty of space for everyone to do their own thing: paddling kayaks on the lake, building sandcastles on the beach, playing pool in the game room, or reading a book in a shady corner. And enough room for all of us to gather for dinner at the end of each fun-filled day.

The retreat has gotten even better with Mary as the new owner. The property is immaculate when we arrive, upgrades appear every year, and if an issue does arise, Mary responds immediately.

We look forward to our return!

Great place for family to get together!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time at the lake. This little gem of a get-a-way is just perfect for families to spend some quality time together. Between the kayaks, canoes, games, yard and well everything else, we could not have asked for anything more. Looking forward to coming back next year. You will not be disappointed with your stay here!!!

Great spot for a family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

This was our fourth and best year at the Retreat, thanks to a new owner who's enthusiasm resulted in great communication, a clean and tidy property, and a bunch of improvements. The addition of kayaks, a canoe, and a paddleboat was a huge plus. There is plenty of space for all 26 of us to spread out. The game room is always a big hit with the teens, and the large sun porch allows us to all get together for dinner every night. The fire pit is perfect for making s'mores or late night stargazing. And sunrise on the the lake is not to be beat. We're look forward to next year!

Exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Brought nearly an entire boy's soccer team to the location for a weekend tournament...had an absolute blast! The property was clean and well kept, the view and the lake both perfect. Mary (the owner) was communicative and complaints, and we can't wait to come back!
