“A Wonderful Retreat”

My wife and I stayed here over the Christmas break.
We wanted a quiet getaway and a chance to unwind. We were not disappointed.

The cottage itself was warm and welcoming, but the Christmas tree, decorations, and fresh poinsettias that greeted us really set the tone.
The surroundings were rustic, charming, and very clean.
All of the amenities we needed were present and in good supply.

Being winter, we didn't get a chance to appreciate the beautiful lake, but we took some pleasant walks through the snow-covered woods.
Of course, we took advantage of the hot tub!

The property wasn't quite as secluded as we'd envisioned, and the lake access looked like it is across the road between two other properties, but once we settled in, it didn't bother us a bit.

Slow days spent reading books and watching movies...
Evenings cooking dinner and stoking the fire...
It was a perfect way to spend the holidays!

“Relaxing Week on Quiet Lake”
Reviewed August 6, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The house was clean, and as advertised. Living room is a great space, and the kitchen is easy to work in. Kids loved the hammocks. It is across the dirt street from the lake - can easily see lake from the front porch. Private dock is between two other houses that sit on the lake. Bedrooms and bathroom are small but functional.

A few notes.
1) Yes, you can hear the Northway when on the lake, but we didn't find it to be bothersome. It bothered me more when boating over by the summer camps, which are a good distance from the cottage.

2) There are some weeds in the lake (a worry in most Adirondack lakes) but it wasn't a big problem.. There is a great place to swim off an island directly in front of the cottage, about 300 yards off shore. My wife and kids swam to and from the island every day while I rowed the boat for safety. Bring your fishing stuff to the island - My kids caught bluegill and perch there. Renata has some poles there - bring some worms and some extra hooks/tackle.

3) The lake was surprisingly quiet despite it being high season. There was some water sking, but not very much - there is no public access to the lake, and most people had small boats or canoes/kayaks. The lake itself does not have that many cottages on it - despite the Northway, we felt very much like we were in the mountains. There are 2 very nice bikes, a rowboat and a big canoe (fiberclass, heavy and sturdy).

4) Just a note to tall people - One of the bedrooms and walkthrough areas has a 6 foot ceiling.

5) Plattsburgh and Burlington were surprisingly easy to get to. We highly recommend the Himalaya restaurant in Plattsburgh. Its a Tibetan/Bhutanese place run by a couple who used to have high powered jobs in NYC. Great people and delicious food. Try the Moma's (steamed dumplings).

6) Poke-o-Moonshine is a great hike (the views are awesome) , but very steep (1200 ft over 1.2 miles). You can go up a more gradual path - its starting place is a mile past the campground on route 9.

Liked best: price,location and ease of communication with owner
Liked least: hardness of master bed and the old oven (which we couldn't turn off). These were relatively small problems.
