Great quiet getaway!!
We had a great time with our family enjoying the beautiful ADK’s. This quaint cabin was just what we were looking for. Far enough a way to be quiet and secluded yet not more than about 20 min drive to local food and stores. Loved the canoe and rowboat. We just enjoyed a relaxed lifestyle for a few days!! Looking forward to visiting again!!
Private Basecamp for ADK Adventures!
First, the hosts are 5 star people. They were very good about communication and were very helpful when we had any issues/questions. The location in the park and by Paradox Lake is great— a short drive to shopping in Ticonderoga, but easy access to fishing and remote hiking. The canoe provided is very serviceable and the lake is beautiful.
The cottage itself is quite old, which has its own charm. It could use some improved lighting though, and the cleaning was not as thorough as we had hoped to find. It didn’t spoil our vacation or anything, but we were disappointed with a lack of cleanliness in some areas of the house.
The walk down to the lake is a bit of a workout for out-of shape office guys like myself.
Overall , I’d say this is a great place if you are on a budget and want a simple basecamp to explore the area.
Peaceful and private!
Cottage was as described. Setting of lake is beautiful. Everything you need to prepare meals was provided. Owners made it a point early on to make sure everything was ok which was great. We used the canoe a lot which added to the experience. It was a short hike down to the dock so be ware if that is an issue physically. We were fine with it. I would stay again and do recommend this cute cottage.
Comfortable getaway in the woods
Cottage comfortable and all as advertised. Excellent lake access. Boats a major plus. Great fishing and tremendous birding. Perfect base camp for exploring east west and north. Easy access to schroon lake town food stores and beach.
We're glad you enjoyed your couple of weeks with us!
Funky, but Fine.
Our party had a perfectly fine week at the Paradox cabin—a warm, dry and quite comfortable place for the first two VERY rainy days of our rare vacation getaway. Everything we really needed was there. Not many frills or extras, but all essentials and basic needs were covered, including many little things often overlooked. And the price was good. Nothing to criticize! The cabin is a bit funky in ways, but it's a *camp* in the Adirondacks, and that's exactly what we were looking for. It's a lovely area, and this late September week it was quiet (surprisingly devoid of visitors!), bug-free, and after our first two days the weather couldn't have been more perfect. The cabin surroundings are private and lovely, the screen porch wonderful (even/especially during heavy rain), and the location at the junction of the river and lake is absolutely choice! Many and varied hikes very nearby. Inside, the space is roomy, the kitchen adequately supplied for basic cooking, beds quite comfortable, and we LOVED the wood stove at this change of season.
We are all "of a certain age" and among us have various physical limitations, so the steep stairs to bedrooms and the only bathroom downstairs was just a bit of a challenge (*not* a complaint—just a heads-up to others).
Just a bit disappointed by the dock (again, *not* a complaint, but to inform others). It is one long & quite narrow stretch, partly sloped (& very slippery after rain), and it drops right off into the marsh on either side. There is no wider area at the water-side end on which more than 1-2 people could sit side-by-side, which we surely would have done if possible. We so very much appreciated having boat use included in the rental, but in our case, the available boats seemed too heavy and the access too awkward to manage easily. And the nearby state park boat rental was closed for the season. We did succeed in making other arrangements, and had a fabulous day on the water, with lots of wildlife sightings. (None of this would have daunted me 30 years ago!)
All in all, we had a marvelous time, and very much appreciated this little treasure of a cabin in a very special place. So very grateful that places like this are available for our use! My detailed comments are not meant to be negative — only informative. (I myself would happily move in and stay here for a month or more!)
Oh, and we found fast untroubled internet access and cell phone service via internet.
We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll choose to come back!
Private & Peaceful
Overall our stay was enjoyable. We were attracted by the offer of a row boat and canoe on premises, however, did not anticipate the trek down the path to the lake. If I were to suggest any improvements, it would be a bathroom upgrade. I found it a little tight, and was disturbed by the mold on the shower curtain.
The kitchen was very nice and bright and well stocked with plates, bowls, cutlery, etc.
The screened porch and the firepit were where we found the most enjoyment, listening to the sounds of nature and the loons.
The peacefulness and privacy made for a nice getaway.
