Beautiful lakefront home on Lake Algonquin. The house is a year round home with a river rock foundation that sits above the lake with great views of the water. It is fully heated including a woodstove, central AC, washer/ dryer and all amenities. There are two kayaks, a canoe, a stand up paddle board and a paddle boat. There is a dock and a floating raft for the kids or adults to swim from.
There is excellent fishing, hiking and biking in the immediate area. Great local restaurants in Hope,, Speculator and Northville.
In Winter, there is great skiing at Gore Mt. or Oak Mt. There is x-counrty skiing on trails and back roads or at Lapland Lake ski area 20 minutes south.
This is our second home so we expect our renters to respect that.
brian murphy purchased this house in 1992
Beautiful home on a small quiet lake with instant access to the Sacandaga River.
We enjoyed this charming cottage. The location was wonderful. We loved using the kayaks, canoe and floating raft. Tried some fishing but no one was hungry that day! Plenty of room for 2 adults and four teenagers. Brought the bikes and loved biking around the lake. Lots of fun things to do within an hour. Lake George, caving, rock climbing, waterfalls and hiking! Brian was great, made sure everything was perfect for our stay. Hoping to try for a winter visit.
This home away from home is truly that; a home. The house and yard are comfortable and well maintained. The location is convenient for local hikes and day trips. We used the kayaks, canoe and pedalboat daily. The town beach is within walking distance and although we swam off the dock at the house the kids enjoyed going over to the beach to jump off the diving board. Using the firepit and roasting marshallows was a nightly event. Take time to make a day trip to the Adirondack Museum it is wonderful for all ages. Its about a 1 hour drive. Less than 1 mile north on route 30 is Mountain Memories Cafe. They serve a delicious but inexpensive lunch. In Speculator behind the department store is a cafe that has GREAT coffee and a good breakfast. Brian couldn't have been a nicer host. I would highly recommend staying at this house. Two suggestions: Stop in Perth to grocery shop for the week. There is a Grand Union in Northville(10 minutes south) and Charlie Johns in Speculator(10 minutes north) I used both for picking up odds and ends. Second go to the Chamber of Commerce in Speculator(on route 30 by charlie Johns) it has a wealth of information about exploring the Adirondaks. Take at least one short hike and you'll be hooked. We had a very peaceful vacation and I didn't want to leave.
We loved the house, garden, lake and the kanoes.
also the waterpedal,and the superbouncer were great for the kids.
Nice and clean house, in a nice quiet town at a beautiful lake. every evening the kids were fishing. Supermarket is a little bit far, but that didnt matter to us,
beautiful surroundings, enough to explore.
Great hiking and biking also.
