very quiet location. Enjoyed the canoe and kayaks, short walk to the boats. Cooked marshmellos in the fire pit. Water had a slight smell of sulphur. Great location for Saratoga race way. Enjoyed our stay.

Great place with campfire area

  • 5 of 5

We found the house in perfect order with everything we needed for our stay. Very clean. We reside in apartment buildings so we value bonfire and outside grill above all. We could spend all the time mostly outside. Adirondack pines are the tallest in the world and they smell great. (hot water does not smell great though). The owner was responsive and helped finding beaches. We recommend Northampton beach over Mayfield . We enjoyed kayaks that are complimentary though we were boating under heavy rain.

Great house. Would go again.

Cozy

Great property, attentive owner, down the street from lake and Lakeside Tavern(great food good vibes). Only drawback... The yard was a mess

Owner's Response: Chris, Thank you for your 4 star review! We are committed to providing a great vacation experience for our guests and encourage renters to contact us if there are any issues that need to be resolved. Unfortunately, we are unclear of what the issue was with the yard. There was a wind/thunderstorm that went through prior to your arrival on 7/1. branches?? Also. we are surrounded by large pines and tend to have pine needles and pine cones on the ground. (all part of the natural Adirondack beauty. ; ) We hope you will return again for another great "Adirondack Getaway". Mary Wiley

Highly Recommended!

  • 4 of 5

I live in the area and had family from out of town stay at this lovely well cared for camp/cottage for 5 nights. It is very clean and well equipped for everyday living. Different members of my family in the surrounding area dropped by and were pleased with the setting (only con was "too many pines" which blocks the sun for most of the day). The dock and beach area is very nice and once again very clean. Knowing the area myself I recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a convenient place to stay while viewing the beautiful Adirondacks! After all, Animal Land is less than 1 mile away and that itself is worth the trip! The convenience of the Lakeside Restaurant is super and so is their food! I recommend this very well described listing to EVERYONE!

Great place to stay and rent. Advertised honestly

  • 5 of 5

The camp was clean and well maintained. They advertised it properly. It needs a couple of kayacks to make it perfect. The owner was excellent on customer service. We went kayacking in Northville. The restaurant where canoe was docked was excellent . We would rent again

Nice Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time while staying at the cabin. The house was clean and well maintained. It perfectly suited our family of five. It was a great place to rest up from the days adventures and plan out what was next for tomorrow.
