About the property

A 2 - Family Home & 2 Cabins Accommodating up to 28 adults & children on 1 acre

Adirondack Lakefront Retreat on the Great Sacandaga Reservoir located in Northampton, NY is a beautiful one acre property with 141 feet of lake frontage with 2 seasonal wood cabins and a 2 family home.

Enjoy the entire property during the summer months for total privacy and to reconnect with family and friends. There is nowhere else quite like this to view early morning sunrises and beautiful evening sunsets.

Right from your doorstep you have access to swimming, boating and fishing all summer long. The retreat offers a large, gently sloping yard and a sandy beach for all ages as well as a fire pit for nighttime storytelling & star gazing. A private boat dock and mooring buoys allow you to bring a boat or 2 or you have the option of renting one, if you wish, to explore the beautiful lake and its many islands.

There is plenty of room to roam on the property for endless fun and outdoor relaxation. Picnic tables, a sandbox and swing set for children and a volleyball net on the grass, as well as a horseshoe pit will keep all ages busy. A fantastic game room is located off the cabins and features a pool table, air hockey, foosball, comfy seating and a flat screen tv. A ping pong table is located on the outdoor patio of the main house along with additional seating.

EACH unit has its own fully stocked kitchen, outdoor gas grill, bathroom with shower and living/dining areas. The cabins' porch is perfect for relaxing/dining together with plenty of seating and an amazing lake view. There is even a dry bar for the adults.



Contact for information.


Beginning mid-June thru mid-September, the retreat is rented exclusively to ONE group in its entirety by the week for total privacy.


Cabin Rentals: The two cabins are seasonal and are shut down during the colder months. The cabins are available mid-May through mid-October only.

The two-Family House is available in its entirety to rent during the winter season offering a beautiful location for all winter sports enthusiasts. The upper level accommodates up to 6 guests and the lower level sleeps up to 10 guests. (We assume 2 people/double bed). Snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing and snowshoeing are available right outside your door. Downhill ski mountains (Royal, Oak, & Gore) are within an hours drive and Lapland Lake cross country ski center is 30 minutes away.

Large Family-Oriented Retreat w/ Direct Lakefront on the Great Sacandaga Lake
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

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!
