Beautiful Adirondack wooded setting in cute town of Chestertown. Loon Lake shared waterfront access across the road. Lake front has small private beach. Several excellent restaurants within 5 minutes. Major Adirondack attractions all around, hiking, horseback riding, boating, kayaking, white-water rafting.

Cozy efficient house designed for relaxing and conversation. Screen porch gives a 'tree house' feel--has a bed for outdoor like sleeping. Nice fireplace/wood stove for cozy nights. Ping pong table in basement. Three levels and indoor and outdoor spaces make for a wonderful getaway.

Shared by our homeowners association, a small, quite beach is ideal for sunbathing, relaxing, nice swimming, canoe and kayak available. Good fishing. Boat rentals and wakeboard and water ski school available from Loon Lake Marina.

Horseback and trail riding at Loon Lake Stables with lots of other riding in the area. World-class Adirondack hiking from Natural Bridge to the High Peaks Wilderness.

Fabulous mini-family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

3 couples, two single adults, and 2 babies all fit perfectly in this house and had a wonderful mini family reunion over Labor Day weekend. The house had all the amenities and the beach was wonderful and close by. Additionally, the location was centrally located between family in Massachusetts and upstate New York, and close to Lake George and hiking in the Adirondacks. Loon Lake is wonderful and Chestertown had everything we needed.

A Very Merry Christmas

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated for the holidays. There was lots of room and everything was clean and well maintained. Though the skiing was not what we hoped due to lots of rain, we were able to enjoy walking the neighborhood. It was very picturesque. I highly recommend this property.

Awesome house, really fun weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our second great Memorial Day weekend here. My husband and I were looking to take our 2 and 4 year olds for a fun but peaceful few days in the Adirondacks and this is the perfect place for it. The house is extremely clean and spacious, with lots of windows and a great outdoor space. We walked back and forth to the lake all day to swim, fish, canoe, and just relax. We also did a few short local hikes, even right from the house. Some great places in town to eat and grab ice cream. At night, we sat in the Adirondack chairs outside the house and made S’mores. Hoping to return this winter for snowmobiling and to take the kids skiing for the first time. Definitely recommend staying here.

Great North Country Stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed with at this little gem on Loon Lake a few times and each time it has been perfect! I have been up with my family several times and I can assure you this house has everything you would want in an Adirondack home! Great kayaking, canoeing, fishing and the hiking trails are close by. The beach was great. It is very close to Gore Mountain as well and serves as an excellent ski chalet. The inside is gorgeous with wooden walls and an awesome Adirondack style screened porch. Definitely would recommend to folks of all ages!
