4 Bedroom Summer Getaway with Sandy Beach
Historically, a traditional Adirondack Camp brought family and friends together for the tranquility and peace of these impressive mountains and lakes. Our Camp on Friends Lake in the Lake George Region is no different, hosting gatherings of all sizes. The living space is very comfortable serving up to 7 people, including children, with a large stone fireplace, dining area, 1 bath, kitchen, front porch, and living room area that has seasonal views of the lake through the thick trees that populate this quiet parcel of land. There are four bedrooms with each sleeping up to two people (2 queen, 1 full, and 2 twin beds in all). Each season is a special treat in the Lake George Region of the Adirondacks: winter skiing at Gore Mountain, fall leaf-watching, summer swimming, hiking, local tourism, and boating.
A beautiful private sandy beach for swimming, picnics, boating, and grilling is available only a short 5 minute walk from the Camp. Children should always be supervised, but for bigger kids (and adults) a floating dock is anchored a short swim from shore for deep diving.

Sweet home in the woods
We loved how close the house was to the beach on the lake — literally a 3 minute walk! The beach itself was lovely too, perfect for swimming and sunbathing. The backyard was great and we enjoyed grilling and roasting marshmallows over the fire pit. My allergies acted up a bit in the house itself, but otherwise we had a really lovely stay. Also, there is a truly excellent selection of games to play, which was an awesome and unexpected treat with two kids! A really nice getaway nestled in the woods.
Thanks for your kind words. So glad that you enjoyed your stay.
Clean and neat cabin
The cabin was clean and neat place had everything you need for cooking the beach is just down the road the water was nice easy access with the kayaks planing next year vacation already
Absolutely perfect! The home was perfect and the neighbors were so friendly!
I would return again! The home was so inviting and the check in and out process of as so easy! Matthew made the experience of renting a vacation home super easy and hectic free. I loved the neighborhood and the beach was absolutely relaxing! We didn't make it out on the water during our stay as it rained a few days out of the four we were there. My daughter loved the sand and roasting mellows by the fire! Thank you for the great experience and sharing your home with my family!
Thank you so much for your good feedback. We're thrilled that you and your family enjoyed themselves so much - even though it rained (ugh, sorry about that). You were a delight to work with and so willing to follow the house guidelines. Our neighbors thought you were all very friendly and considerate. Thanks so much and come back again. Matthew
Great place to reset, and enjoy what's really important
Thanks so much for the use of your cabin! We had planned a few daytrips in the area, as we have 4-year-old twins and assumed they'd get a little stir-crazy in a cabin by the lake for 5 days (with [gasp!], no TV!). As it turned out, we never left the property! The kids absolutely loved it and are already asking when we can return. The lake is gorgeous. Sandy beach w/ a gentle slope into the water, perfect for the little guys. CRYSTAL clear- I could actually see the floating dock's anchor bucket, which had to be 15' deep. Remarkably clean water. We spent every morning swimming and sand- castle building, then back to the cabin for a late lunch, and capped off each evening with a sunset kayak trip. Back to the cabin for dinner, and after the goblins were asleep, enjoyed the firepit, crickets, and cocktails under an unreal canopy of stars. The cabin was well-kept, clean, and had all the provisions we needed to cook everything from BBQ chicken to oven-braised short ribs. Thank you for opening your home to us, and allowing us to build some wonderful family memories!
Thank you so much for your kind comments. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. I'm so impressed with the specific details that made your time at the lake memorable. Ironically we have twins only a little older and they too feel very content cycling between beach play, food, and yard time. So pleased you found our place. Thank you for keeping it very well kept under your watch. Hope to see you next year.
Great family getaway!!!
We arrived at the cottage after 9:30pm during a thunderstorm and to our surprise the lights were on , What a welcome sight ! We loved the fact that this place was pet free and smoke free due to our kids allergies and asthma. The decor was perfect, the kitchen well stocked to cook in and the absence of a TV was great!! The library / game room was a homerun. Oh, by the way the lake was refreshing , and the canoe and kayaks were fun! Our only complaint would be that our stay was to short. We plan on seeing you next year .Thanks for having such a lovely mountain getaway. The Melbers Myrtle Beach, S.C.
Oh that is wonderful! I'm so glad you enjoyed your visit at our 'home away from home'. Thank you for being so considerate to our space. It means a lot and we'd welcome you back anytime. Have a good summer. MB
We really enjoyed our stay at this property, which has a "genuine" cottage feel, while being perfectly clean and cozy. The ideal place for canoeing, swimming, hiking and relaxing around the firepit. We did a nearby trail called The Pinnacle, which takes about one hour and gives a breathtaking view of Lake George. There is also an abandoned mine not too far that we found very interesting. The Palmer Pond Trail is also good. So many things to do! And the owner is very nice. Highly recommended!
The quiet community of Chestertown is home to shops, restaurants, horseback riding, art galleries, supermarket, bank, and more. Lake George and its bustling village is just 20 minutes away. Conveniently located off Interstate 87 within the Lake George Region of the Adirondacks where restaurants, attractions, and mountain activities are in abundance. Remain at the Camp and you have a relaxing Adirondack escape to remember for years to come.
