About the property

Camp With In-ground Pool, Game Room, Campfire, Volleyball, across from beach.

Adirondack Big Pines is a magical place where families and friends come to play, laugh, re-energize, and build wonderful memories. We only rent a few weeks since it is our families retreat.

We are only half a block from Pine Lake Park & Beach. They offer canoeing, boat rentals, sandy beaches, and yoga! NY State hiking trails that you can walk to from the camp (9 Corner lake at the end of that easy hike & Kane Mt which offers a tower). Utube the hikes. Golf only 2 miles away at Nick Stoner Golf Course, and Mountain horseback riding 5 minutes away.

Now lets chat about the offers two living rooms, the adult room has a large TV, DVD, all the trimmings, WIFI, large sofa, of key piano, room size 26x18, the kids living room is knotty pine, love seat, table and 4 chairs for game playing, lots of old movies and games. Small game room with fooseball, and bathroom.

The kitchen is large offers gas stove, 2 fridges, all the dishes and cooking items, no blender you'll have to bring your own. W/D nice eat in and visiting space.

Deck is right off the kitchen it offers 9 ft picnic table, grill cooking station.

You can eat and cook while over looking the 1.5-acre yard, and large inground pool 16x32. There is a volleyball net and a large fire pit....the firepit is everyone's favorite place at night, tons of stars, and the sound of the loons singing to each other, makes for great story telling.

When you want to retire there are 7 bedrooms (2Q,2F,4T) there are some extra pull mattresses under the beds. We provide sheets & towels, although more towels can be used at the beach.

Our camp is centrally located so if you desire to do a day trip in Saratoga, Cooperstown, or Lake George your only about 1 hour away.

We'd love to have you come enjoy our home in the Souther Adirondacks, we make payment easy offering a few ways to pay so call me today and see what we have left. All the Best,

Isabella Family

About Patricia Isabella

John and Trish Isabella have been renting properties for a few weeks a year over 10 years, and understand what you desire once you arrive on site. We have put a lot of thought into accommodations and the fine details.

Our primary home is 20 minutes away so if there is any issue we can be on site quickly!

We offer our home and cell numbers if you need us for anything!

Patricia Isabella purchased this house in 2005

Why Patricia Isabella chose Caroga Lake

Adirondacks is the largest national park, its breathtakingly beautiful! This is the place to get back to nature, where you can hike, canoe, enjoy campfires, horseback ride or even a bike ride.

The camp is just a wonderful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We do not offer internet and cell service is spotty. We offer TV/Cable/landline. It forces families to play games, talk and enjoy one on one time.We hope you love it as much as we do!

What makes this house unique

It's great to have a 7 bedroom home with 2 living rooms, 2.5 baths, a huge yard, an in-ground pool, making it an ultimate family fun house!

The history how the ultimate family fun house came into creation: The camp is really two homes, the first side was one of the first homes in the area dating back to the early 1900's built by Cyrus Duvery, some say he never left. The second side was built in the1950's.

Amazing Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

WOW! What an amazing retreat at Caroga Lake! This house expands on and on with so much space for your entire family. We had a wonderful visit with young and old family members and everyone felt they had their own space. The grounds are beautiful with a beautiful area to grill out, a wonderful deck, in-ground pool, fire pit and more. Access to the lake made the location of this house even more important on our visit.

The owners were so easy to work with and very willing to please guests and available to answer any questions we had. We will definitely go back to this wonderful retreat!

Best Bang for your Buck!!!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing Adirondack get away. The in ground pool is a wonderful amenity. Beautiful woodland area for out door adventures with a HUGE bon fire pit. An absolutely perfect cabin for families, guys or ladies week long get away. Forget your cell phones and lap tops you will not miss them while taking in the scenic beauty of the surrounding Adirondack lakes and trails.

Property is well kept and the staff went out of their way to accommodate our every need. Best Bang for your buck when it comes to size and amenities.

Absolutely beautiful!!! We had a wonderful time in this beautiful vacation rental. We loved being immersed in nature. The fire pit is HUGE and there was a giant yard in the back that was very private. Our kids had a wonderful time playing out there. There were cute old fashioned games and decorations. Very clean, roomy, cute decor, lots of attractions.

Wonderful!!! Would absolutely recommend to anyone!

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was very accurate! Everything was clean and beautiful. We had a relaxing stay hanging out around the house and sun bathing by the pool. The pool was gorgeous and would be especially nice for people who aren't to keen on swimming in lakes. But, the lake, Pine Lake, is very beautiful with a wonderful beach. We love the Nine Corner Lake and Kane Mountain hikes near by and they are very doable for all levels. The rooms in the cabin are very cute and have a nice Adirondack feel. A few of the rooms are themed and are perfect for kids. We had a huge family and the house was great! Tons of room, bedrooms, and a huge kitchen and table. We had a wonderful time and will definitely be back!
