Chestertown House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Truly a house for all seasons. Loon Lake is a crystal clear lake renowned for its watersports and fishing. Go for a swim or race across the water on your skis or tube. With 2 sandy beaches, a dock, exclusively for the use of our guests, bring your boat, your water skis or just sit and watch the sun set over beautiful Mt. Kipp. In autumn the lake is still quite warm, fish are biting and the long, golden days are glorious and peaceful. Winter brings with it a new wave of outdoor sports- skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and tubing! We are skiers and have kept this gem for our family for years during the winter months.. Just a 15 minute drive to beautiful, family-friendly Gore Mountain. Or if skiing is not for you, go tubing at the Ski Bowl in North Creek. Right outside your door you can ice skate, cross country ski, snow shoe or snowmobile. And for that romantic get away, book a horse drawn sleighride one evening at the Circle B ranch.So come play in the snow and curl up in front a warm fire when you are done. With plenty of room for everyone to unwind after a fabulous day on the slopes.

This modern cedar home is nestled on three private acres full of tall pines, providing filtered lake views. The path to one of two sandy beaches is directly across from the house. Just 400 feet from front deck to your private dock where you can get on your boat or just enjoy the sunsets. The second beach is just a short stroll away at the end of this quiet dead-end road.

About 1/4 mile down the road is Loon Lake Marina where all fishing/boating/water sports rentals and supplies are available. The lake provides excellent fishing, water skiing, swimming or just watching the spectacular sunsets from the dock. Just minutes away there are great restaurants, charming local shops,great amusement parks and adult attractions, and just about every outdoor activity you could want. Gore Mountain is just 10 minutes by car with mountain biking and gondola rides and Saratoga, just south of us, is in high season throughout the summer months.

Beautifully furnished and immaculately maintained, this home features an open floor plan, cathedral ceilings, cozy fireplace and two decks (front and rear) to enjoy the views. With one bedroom/bath on the first floor and two bedrooms connected by a bath on the second, it's ideal for two couples or a family. A brand new, gourmet kitchen with granite counters and breakfast bar leading you to the rear deck and outdoor grill complete the amenities.

Exactly as described

This is a great location between Lake George and Lake Placid. The house was cozy and comfortable surrounded by woods and easy walk to the lake.

We would definitely recomend this house.

Terrific! Loon Lake Gem

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy when we pulled up the driveway. The pictures online were exactly how the home was. The house was well maintained, updated, clean and well stocked. It is located on the same road as the marina which was great since we rented a boat and drove it right to the dock located on property. We would absolutely book this home again.

Cozy winter retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 stayed at this lovely house during a 3 day ski trip at Gore. It is just a short 10 min ride to slopes which was perfect. The house has everything you need for a comfortable stay and the bbq grill and wood burning fireplace were perfect for us as we used them everyday after returning from the mountain. The owner Lynn, is very nice and will make sure you have a great stay. Highly recommend.

What a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation at Loon Lake. The house had everything we could possibly need to relax and spend time together. It was a family winter trip that will hold a fond place in our memories for many years to come. There was plenty of room for all of our children, beautiful views and much to do in this quiet little town. The owners were generous and responsive. What a treat!
