Beautiful & Comfortable, with plenty of activity
We stayed at this cottage in August 2016. We had 3 kids and 3 adults. The house is lovely and comfortable: There was plenty of room for all of us. The house itself has everything that you'd need & expect for a vacation rental - fully equipped kitchen, wifi, excellent cable TV, and a great tv set. And the house came with a gorgeous canoe and 2 kayaks. We used all of these liberally for the week that we were there. The property and the lake are fantastic. There is a deck at the house looking out over the lake, as well as a couple of grassy landings on the way down to the water, all perfect for a cup of coffee while planning your day, reading a good book, or just hearing the wind in the poplars. A stone staircase leads to a dock at the lake, which seems to have been made for watching spectacular sunsets, fishing, jumping off of, or just horsing around. We arrived on a Saturday, and the lake was alive with summer activity and fun. Even with the weekend activities, that never hampered our ability to swim, kayak and canoe. By Monday morning, things had quietened down considerably. The lake is great for swimming, and jumping off the dock kept two 10-year olds and a 15-year old entertained for hours. There are plenty of options for activities beyond the house and swimming off the dock. For example, there are a couple of local marinas that rent power boats and other water-sports ephemera - pontoons, go-fast boats, water-skis, tubes, etc. We rented a go-fast boat with a tube, (which the kids loved!) at a reasonable price: we drove it from the marina all over the lake, docked it at the house, and launched it from there all afternoon one day. Several nice and kid-friendly restaurants nearby gave us a chance to get out for a meal as a family. The host's comprehensive and extremely helpful guide book gave us detailed descriptions and reviews of almost all the restaurants in the area, taking the guesswork out of finding a decent meal. A weekly farmers' market in Chestertown was a treat for both the adults and kids in our party. (A more prosaic supermarket is also nearby for basic provisioning) There are plenty of hiking options nearby, including several trails through NY state park within a short drive (i.e 5 - 20 minutes). Overall, this was one of the best vacation rentals that I have had over 20 years.
Thank you for such a lovely, and comprehensive, review! We are delighted that you and your family had such a wonderful experience there, and that everything was to your liking – it sounds like you all took full advantage of what the area has to offer! We very much appreciate you taking the time to post this review, and hope that we can welcome you back again in the future!
Perfect private home on the lake!!
This home was the perfect spot to spend a fun filled and relaxing 2 weeks. It was private, comfortable, homey, and had everything you needed. Appreciated the detailed guest book and labeling of everything. Left all the guess work out!
It was very clean, and the owner left a gift certificate to the Main Street Ice Cream Parlor, which the grandkids loved. It is their favorite spot. We did a lot of kayaking, boating , swimming . hiking, s'mores by the fire and just had a lot of fun! Ate our usual Friday night pizza at the Panther Mountain Inn, and also tried the Bang Bang Shrimp at the Cafe Adirondack.
I would highly recommend this property and would love to come back next year.
It was a pleasure to work with Amy , at HomeAway , in arranging our stay.
Thank you, Susan, for leaving this review, and for your kind comments about the lake house and everything else. It was a pleasure sharing it with you. Just wanted to note that Amy works for our rental agent, Adirondack Lakefront Property Management, not HomeAway – and I am glad (but not at all surprised) you had such a positive experience working with her! I hope you will be able to stay with us again.
This lake home was just perfect! Everything we needed or would think of needing was there. We didn't have the best weather but that didn't stop us from having a great time. We rented a pontoon boat from the Marina which was literally 5 mins by boat from the house. The fishing was great the lake is beautiful. We have stayed in the Adirondacks at many homes and this one was the best, and working with Realtor was a pleasure.
If your on the fence please try it you will not regret it.I cant wait for next year!
Thank you for leaving the review -- glad to hear you were able to enjoy the area despite the weather, and we hope to have you back!
Lovely Home Away From Home on Loon Lake
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay here during the first weekend in October. The house is adorable -- very clean, organized and nicely decorated. It's cozy and comfortable. We loved the view of the lake from the master bedroom and drinking our morning coffee (Keurig & K-cups provided) with a beautiful lookout from the living room. It truly felt like a home away from home!
The owner of the house provided us with excellent customer service. Household items and areas were labeled for our convenience and any questions we had were answered in a detailed booklet he left on the kitchen table for us. He also provided us with a gift certificate to the Main Street Ice Cream Parlor, where we had some great sandwiches and ice cream.
We are outdoorsy people, so we loved being on the lake and in the Adirondacks. We hiked Mt. Marcy (about an hour away) and visited nearby Lake Placid. And we absolutely loved kayaking on Loon Lake and taking in the beautiful sights and sounds, and at this time of year, the gorgeous foliage.
I would highly recommend this property to anyone. It's a relaxing getaway in a beautiful location. We had a lovely time and we hope to come back next year!
Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review! Your comments were most appreciated. Hope to see you again!
