Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family stayed here 3 nights from Sept 1 through 4. The house was very easy to get to and we found using our GPS. Upon arrival the hosts left very specific instructions about the house, hot tub, and a special handwritten note about recent bear activity (and they were right!). The house is a beautiful ADK log cabin with plenty of room to accommodate a big group. We enjoyed the many decks and beautiful sunsets. The water front is lovely with a sandy bottom. We are looking forward to coming back. We loved it.

Like a Christmas Card

  • 4 of 5

PRO's

4.5 stars!

What a beautiful home and location. We basically had a family reunion in February, which is kind of crazy, but everyone had a super time. My 3 kids, my grandchildren, my sister, nephew came. It snowed almost daily. Simply beautiful, like a Christmas card. As cold as it was sometimes (below zero), the house was always warm and comfortable. Heated floors were very nice. We went snowmobiling, sking, sledding, skating, and snowboarding at McCauley Mountain. All the things you can't do in Florida.

Olin, the caretaker of the property did a super job and was very responsive to our questions and keeping the driveway plowed and sanded for us. Great guy! We had a problem with the TV in the living room the first night we arrived and he was there in less than an hour and took care of it quickly. The next day, he arrived with brand new flat screens for the whole house! Talk about taking care of the problem! Thank you

CON'S

This was my mistake and I should have known better but the driveway is a challenge with the snow. Old Forge gets a lot of snow as you know, which is why we came here. You must have a 4 wheel drive or you may not make it up the driveway. Olin kept it plowed and sanded, but it was still a challenge for my rental car

This may be picky but just making a comment. The house could use a good spring cleaning. Maybe it was from being there in the off-season.

But all of us would definitely go back.

Thank you.

Holiday Stay at 349 S Shore Acres

  • 4 of 5

House is beautiful and views are amazing! We had our entire family up for the week between Christmas and New Year's Day and enjoyed very comfortable living in this house. It was relaxing to come back after snowmobiling and unwind in the hot tub then sit by the fireplace in the living room. Location is very convenient to town. Having two refrigerators and a washer and dryer was great with so many of us! Mark and Olin the caretakers were wonderful to work with and kept the driveway plowed and were on hand for any questions we had. We would recommend this home to anyone that is looking for a lot of space and the comfort of being home while vacationing in the Adirondacks! Great time!

Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us who have been quilting friends for many years have escaped to this " retreat" every year for the past six years. This year was exceptional , because the leaves were @ peak; the spectacular view from the front windows (our sewing stations) was a changing vista daily. We had double rainbows and loons swimming nearby. The quiet road is great for daily walks. The village of Old Forge is only minutes away. We bring a lot of food (and wine 🍷) but did enjoy meals at Tony Harper's, Frankies, and the Seventh Lake House. We look forward to going every year ( and keep hoping we'll be surprised with a dishwasher soon)! We always enjoy the quilt show @ The View and The Crazy Moose Quilt Shop north on Rte 28 in Inlet.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for three wonderful nights with our toddler. The house is large and well-appointed, and the view is stunning. This was the perfect place to decompress from a busy summer. We were so happy to see that the deck had a gate, which eliminated worries about our toddler wandering off. They also provided a gate to block the stairs going to the basement, which was a big help for keeping our little explorer contained! Everything about this place was peaceful, and our little family loved the stay. Next time we'll probably bring more friends and family- this would be an ideal place to have a larger get-together.

Great location! Great cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Some of the group stayed at this cabin 3 years ago and have always talked about going back. The cabin was available on one of the guys birthday weekend so it seemed like a no brainer. Jeff was easily accessible to answer any of the many questions I had. We will definantly be back! Thank you again for a great weekend!
