Cottage
If it's summer, you're going to want to be here. This cottage has a sunny deck that looks out over the lake and private dock, plus comfortable accommodations and a full kitchen. It's off the main road, but still close to town for groceries, ice cream, playground, and concerts. The town beach and boat launch are just up the road. The house sleeps seven, and you can bring your dog for the stay, too. If you're visiting family, they're going to love coming to see you here.

This cottage has a sunny deck that looks out over the lake and private dock, plus comfortable accommodations and a full kitchen. It's off the main road, but still close to town for groceries, ice cream, playground, and concerts. The town beach and boat launch are just up the road.

The house is also a great place to stay if you're visiting the local Universities. Commencement and parents' weekend book early! The house and its sunny deck face south, toward your private lake shore and dock. You can watch the sun rise with a hot cup of coffee. You can keep an eye on the kids chasing minnows in the sandy shallows. Afternoon brings a picnic on the deck and a boat ride or swim off your dock. (A paddle boat and canoe are included, but you may also bring your own Jet Ski or small boat to tie up at the dock.) The grill is ready for dinner, and a campfire waits for sunset and the moonrise over the glassy lake. Life is good. Downstairs, the wood-paneled great room sports a long bank of windows, providing a complete south-facing view of the lake. The spacious deck, with a dining set and propane grill, is perfect for relaxing or entertaining. The full kitchen includes stove, refrigerator, Keurig, and microwave. The newly-remodeled bathroom is small but beautiful, with a walk-in shower and custom tile. The house is a great place to get away from civilization, but don't worry -- it comes with high-speed internet, WiFi, basic cable, and a flat-screen TV. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms that sleep seven comfortably. The largest bedroom has a king sized bed, the next has a full bed and a twin bed, and the third has two twin beds. The two south-facing bedrooms have terrific views of the lake and A/C units in case of a heat wave. We use this house for our own vacation, and we know you'll love it as much as we do. We rent 3pm Saturday throiugh 11am the next Saturday. Exceptions may be made later in the season and off-season. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 431093More

About the neighbourhood
In the 'Welcome to the Lake House' notebook, we've listed many of the local restaurants and activities. Norwood has its own cafe and town green for concerts and ice cream. The town beach and boat launches are just up the road as well. Potsdam, the next larger town, has a wide variety of restaurants, a farmers' market, and movie theater. To the north, the town of Massena has an actual drive-in movie, which is a whole lot of fun! Massena also has parks on the St. Lawrence river for playing and fishing. With a little more effort, you can visit the Almanzo Wilder house in Malone, the Olympic Ice Arena in Lake Placid, Tupper Lake's Woodsmen's Days, the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake, or Uncle Sam's Boat Tours in Alexandria Bay.
