Fantastic vacation with a beautiful view of the lake

  • 5 of 5

This Beach house was a little bit of a drive for us but well worth it! The house had so many nice amenities. A dishwasher, washer and dryer, comfortable beds, sheets, towels. The house has easy in and out of the water which made water time very pleasant. The owner also shared their kayak with us. Communication with the owners were fantastic! Very friendly. I forgot my iPad up there so he's being so very kind to ship it back. Can't say enough good things about the camp or the owners.

If I had to offer suggestions it would be these. Adirondack way can be easy to miss. Not the owners fault. The 10 nailed to the tree looked more like 70. Common sense gets you where you need to go. The owner said the lock box is on the left side of the camp. He was right but most of our other places had the box located on the left side next to the door. Even though the weather was less than ideal, we would rent again. Simply Beautiful!

Great House in front of lovely lake

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property which is located in secluded area in front of quiet lake. Sadly weather was poor for our week (may 2017) only had 2 nice days to sit outside. I would say you need good weather to fully get the best out of this location. Not much else nearby to visit, but trips out to lake placid and burlington in vermont was very nice. Plenty of shops in the nearest bigish town which is plattsburgh. Cant fault the house which is supplied with everything you need for a enjoyable stay and is very clean and spaceous . Could imagine it to be great in the winter with plenty of snow as good log burner available which is very cosy! Had fun in the kayak on the lake on the good weather days we had so some nice memories to take home with us.

Great house in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

We came up to ride motorcycles through the Adirondacks for the weekend. It was nice to come back to the house after riding all day and relax. The house has everything and was very clean. We used the grill every night to cook dinner. Sunrise on the lake was stunning. It was very quiet and peaceful. We only saw one boat briefly on the lake the entire time we were there.

Perfect blend of rustic and modern

  • 5 of 5

My wife, dog, and I had a great stay here. The owner was easy to work with right from the beginning and everything is as advertised.

It was winter so we didn't use the lake unless watching the ice fishing counts. We loved snowshoeing in the woods next door and made good use of the wood fireplace. The home is airy and bright with an amazing view of he lake. The radiant heat keeps it cozy and there's nothing like sipping hot cocoa by the fire and playing a board game.

The bed was comfortable and the shower great! The kitchen is well-equipped. We really couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. We took a quick day trip to Montreal and getting supplies in Dannemora or Plattsburgh was simple.

We're already planning our next trip up when we can kayak and hike.
