Stunning Views of Lake Algonquin and the surrounding mountains from this sweet cottage. Enjoy watching the fog rise from the lake in early AM, fish off the dock or take the kayaks and paddleboard out for a spin from your private lakefront. GREAT hikes and waterfalls nearby.
Sleep up to 6 but this is the perfect romantic getaway for two. Grill your meals, sit by the firepit and watch for shooting stars at night.
Enjoy stunning lake and mountains views from this sweet lakefront cottage. Perfect for a romantic getaway for two, or bring the family to join the fun.
Sleeps up to 6. Great for families or small groups looking for a QUIET retreat...sound travels easily across lakes, so if you are a noisy group this is not for you...we have promised our neighbors they will not be disturbed by music, yelling or any other type of noise from our guests.
This is a family camp that is kept in great shape but is not brand new like many others, so the rates are reasonable despite the killer location. The views are some of the best in the area, this is direct waterfront with dock, boats and fire pit. We have many who come back every year...hope you will too!
A favorite room is the screened in porch for enjoying meals or playing cards late into the evening. Very large lawn for hanging out, dock and boats provided for swimming and exploring the lake. We supply detailed descriptions of hikes and waterfalls for our guests - many took us years to find - so you will have access to all those special spots that we love so much.
The Cottage has 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other has a double bed and custom made bunk beds the kids will love. Sleeps 6 people max here in a total of 4 beds.
Living room has a wood fireplace, there is an outside fire pit (wood provided), fully equipped kitchen (which was just renovated, do not have new pictures up yet), gas grill, washer/dryer, dock, row boat, THREE 2 person kayaks!, stand up paddle board, Wifi, Netflix and a 47 inch flat screen (but no cable).
The large lawn is a great spot to hang out, has large picnic table, adirondack chairs, a dining table and a fire pit for roasting marshmallows and enjoying the star lit sky at night.
There are numerous hikes for both beginners and the more athletically talented in this area, some beautiful local waterfalls, fishing right off our dock or on nearby rivers, free tennis, basketball courts and public beach in town.
We provide quality linens, towels and many other necessities to make your stay easy. Things like coffee filters, paper towels, spices...they are all here. Just bring your swim suits and hiking shoes.
This has been our family home for 60 years, there are updates (like new bathroom and kitchen), but for the most part this remains a camp, albeit a very clean and well maintained one, with all the rustic charm that you might expect in an older home.
Best things about the house? The waterfront location, the amazing view, comfy beds. The sight of the fog lifting off the lake while enjoying that first cup of coffee in the morning still takes our breath away.
Things we would change if we could? There is a boat launch next door - doesn't get much action (this is a very sleepy lake), but on a busy summer weekend you might be watching a few boats coming and going.
Also RECYCLES are a real hassle here. Guests must agree to take their recycles home if they bring a lot - a few can be left (less than 1 bag of them) but you must agree to follow the towns strict recycle rules - they must be kept clean and separate from garbage. We (i.e. the housekeeper) then have to take them to the dump and separate them into bins by hand. We simply cannot handle this task if large amounts are left. So - our general rule here is like camping, if you bring a lot in, you must agree to take them out!
This is 4 hrs from NYC, 1.5 hrs from Albany, 1 hr from Saratoga and Lake George.
No smoking, no pets (no exceptions, sorry!), no parties here, no loud music or late night outdoor partying. This is a great spot to find some peace and quiet, and our neighbors feel the same way. So, if this works for you, we'd love to have you!
Rates quoted are for two persons, $10 fee per additional person per day, this includes children. Six persons max, no exceptions to that either, sorry! All adult guests must agree to read and sign our lease, and to follow the house instructions.

I am a vacation rental homeowner as well as a reservation agent, and have been for 12 years. The Adirondack properties you find on our AirBnB listings are our privately owned rentals (we use them a ton as well!), the others are not owned by me, but are managed by me.
Owners use me to assist with booking their homes to assure there are no mistakes, no double bookings, no missed payments or miscommunications.
Guests love working with me because I am easily available (it's my job!), I respond right away, and I do all I can to make sure their vacation rental is hassle free. Security deposits are refunded promptly, directions and lists of suggestions for local attractions are supplied, all homes and apartments rented through me meet high standards and are renter friendly.
My job is to make sure everyone is happy. I make my living facilitating vacations, so I am happy. We all win!
