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.

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!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the lake house as an extended family trip. The house exceeded my expectations in every way. The views are incredible and the location couldn't be better. It felt very private and the town of Old Forge is only a short ride away. Everything was set up for us when we arrived and we truly loved it here and will most likely book for next summer. All the good reviews were on the money. The house has the true Adirondack feel to it and the kids loved the outdoor hot tub and hammock setup along with the dock that you can jump right into the lake from. The lake is so clean and it was just nice to look at passing boats from the outdoor deck. We used the bbq a few nights and had a great dinner in town at sisters bistro. There is a ton of stuff to do nearby. We rented a pontoon boat and also took the chairlift up McCauley mountain and hiked down, which was fun. The owner responded promptly to emails and refunded my damage deposit very quickly. Highly recommend staying here.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was wonderful! The view was amazing every day we were there. Being from Texas we are use to AC during the summer; however, while we were here there was no need for AC. The area was amazing and my kids can't wait to go when they get out or away from the Army for family time. You could hear the loons at night and if you were lucky you would get to see a bear. This vacation home is by far the best we have ever stayed at with the family. The town is close and the restaurants were good. We had Walt's for lunch and breakfast one day. Another was Tony Harper's too the wings and pizza were good. We also went to Enchanted forest and had a wonderful time. We even took a tour of the lakes and the captain was wonderful. The tour was two hours but it went by so fast it didn't seem like the two hours.

Amazing Place!!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely beautiful. Myself and 8 other girlfriends met up here to catch up after 30 years. The weather was colder than we expected but with the hot tub and fires each night we had a great time. This home is not only beautiful, but it is HUGE. Plenty of room, clean and very well taken care of. I think this just may be an annual meet up place for us each year. Definitely recommend this place to anyone. Looking forward to coming back!!
