Overview

Old Forge House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms (Sleeps 8)

This 4 bedroom, 2 bath, modern, waterfront, vacation chalet is just five minutes from the Old Forge Village with many Adirondack touches. This is an excellent location near trails, swimming, MacCauly Mountain, and summer/winter activities. There is a heated, attached garage and mountain/lake views. Use our waterfront lot on Twin Pond for canoeing, kayaking (two on premises), and enjoying the Adirondack sunset. This 1.8 acre private, wooded vacation spot is located off of South Shore Road, yet just under two miles from the center of Old Forge, sandy Town Beach and docks. At Hummingbird Cove, you will enjoy three levels of splendor with a great room with fireplace, gorgeous porch overlooking Twin Pond off of the great room, loft, as well as newly renovated bathrooms. It boasts cedar railings on the deck, new hardwoods throughout, Master suite on the lower level with spa tub and fireplace, and Knotty Pine on every level. There is Adirondack character around every corner. Hummingbird Cove is an inviting location for observing deer, loons, birds, trees, wildflowers, and other wildlife. There is a heated garage for snowmobiles and plenty of parking. Sled onto South Shore Road, Twin Ponds or just a short trip to the Fulton Chain and trails. A chilled bottle of Salmon Run awaits you. Get ready to unwind!

Immaculate Chalet with Waterfront Lot In Old Forge

Very nice place - we enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

I rented this house because of its proximity to the lakeside house the rest of my extended family was renting. This house was very nice, clean and everything was in a good condition. The kitchen has plenty of pots, pans and dishes to satisfy your needs. The grill was in good shape and worked well and was reliable for cooking steak or chicken. When we arrived, the house was a bit warm and took a while to cool off as there is no AC but there are plenty of fans for each room. Since there are bears in the area (very cool to see one) I did not think it wise to leave the sliders open at night which cut the circulation a bit. Better safe than sorry. There is also wi-fi and decent cell service for those not seeking full disconnection from the outside world.

There is access to the pond across the street if you want to do some canoeing with the kayaks and canoe provided by the owners. The waterfront access is not somewhere you can spend a day at if that is what you are seeking. My family and I made use of the canoes a couple days to just paddle around and have a couple hours of family time before moving on to the next activity.

This is really a great house if you are coming to the ADK and need a home base for your fishing, hiking and/or sightseeing activities. At night, there is a nice firepit to hangout and drink some beer or wine by the fire.

My family and I enjoyed our stay.
