About the property

6 bedrooms, sleeps 10

Dry Island on Upper Saranac Lake, a 12-acre private Adirondack luxury rental, is a vacation home offering access to their Adirondack Luxury Lodge, Cabin and Boathouse. Located near Lake Placid and Saranac Lake, NY, this Adirondack Great Camp getaway is a rustic and luxurious retreat with accommodations and lodging available to sleep up to ten people.

As you wander and explore all the island's offerings in the heart of Upper Saranac Lake, you may feel as close to heaven and peace as you will ever be. There is joy in you as you take in the unpolluted Adirondack Mountain air and look at breathtaking mountain views.

As you venture around the island, your spirits will be refreshed, and your soul will be cleansed. There are even paths that have never been walked upon.

Since Dry Island is a private Adirondack luxury estate, you may do as you wish in any clothing you choose on your vacation. As you desire, the owner's staff of a Boatman, Chef, and Housekeeper are at your service.

Reservations: All financial arrangements are completed prior to arrival and no monies need be brought with you. Sample menus are mailed to you ahead of time.

Our chef can make special meals for any or all if we have sufficient notice.

We can also arrange for any special watercraft such as Pontoon boats, ski boats, etc. These can be rented in town and delivered to the launch site ready for you to board. You can make the financial arrangements for those craft directly with the marina.

Our caretaker will gladly pick you up at the local airport should you fly commercial or private aircraft. It is a 15 minute drive from airport to our launch site. Please let us know ahead of time and we will be there to meet you upon landing. Continental Airlines is the only major carrier at the Adirondack Regional Airport located in Lake Clear. The smaller Lake Placid Airport is about 30 minutes drive to the east.

Reservations (Continued): Reservations are requested as far in advance as possible. Please phone or e-mail us and we will hold your reservation for 7 days, by which time we will need a 20% deposit. Upon receipt of your check, we will confirm your reservation by mailing you a letter of confirmation and an invoice for the balance which is due 60 days prior to your arrival. If the balance has not been received by that date, we need to reluctantly cancel your reservation. If it is less than 60 days from your visit time the above deposit procedure does not apply. All we need is sufficient time for us to receive your payment in full.

Cancellations: We understand that sometimes people must cancel. So long as it is at least 60 days in advance we will gladly refund all funds less a 2% cancellation fee. After that no refund is possible regardless of the reason for non arrival, unless we are able to rebook the space. You are, of course, welcome to send someone else in your place.

If you decide to come to the Adirondacks on the spur of the moment we encourage you to call on the chance that we might have an opening for you. Sometimes people do have to cancel or leave early. In that case it may be possible to book you in for less than a full week.

Firewood is cut and stacked ready for you at anytime. The caretaker will rebuild and prepare a new log fire for you each day if you desire. Our island is unpretentious but quite upscale with all the comforts of your own home. The bathrooms are generous in size and have the amenities you would expect in a luxury resort. Oversized Turkish towels, hair dryers, special soaps and lotions are also on hand. If you prefer that the staff leave for several hours or days, just say the word and you will have the entire island to yourself.
