Adirondack beauty all year! Fully furnished home has lovely great room, two bedrooms, one bath, basement family room, large deck, outdoor fire pit, screened porch with lake glimpse, limited air conditioning, rights to private lake, w/d, fireplace with wood, in quiet wooded setting. Central location.

The space
More like going home than renting! The house is fully furnished (including two pack and plays, a high chair with splat mat and a baby gate) for comfort and ease of function. Large, airy rooms are filled with Adirondack light. Movies, games, a fire pit (NY State burning bans may apply), and a variety of reading material and puzzles are provided for rainy days and evenings. The large outdoor deck has it's own picnic table, grill and lots of comfortable seating. The screened in porch is a perfect spot for morning coffee and late night game time providing a great area for insect free relaxation throughout the day. Sadly, trees have grown with time and our lake view has become limited to more of a lake glimpse. In spite of what some of our reviews imply Lake House is not a lake front property. The access to (private) Friends Lake is across the road and a seven minute walk from the house and can be accessed only on foot as there is no parking at the shore. At the house there are large lawn areas for relaxing in warm weather or making your own sleigh runs when it's snowy. The fire pit is located in the large back yard. Skates, xc skis, sleds,and snowshoes are provided in a variety of sizes during the winter season. Beach and water toys, floats, noodles, canoes, 1 or 2 man kayaks, with 5 adult and a variety of children’s life jackets provided during the summer season. Semi-private access to Friends Lake's natural (as in wooded) and stony shoreline provides opportunities for fun whatever the season. Although we provide boats for our guests enjoyment there is no dock. We ask that guests enjoy the lake quietly (no glass containers, music, or fires please) as a sign of respect for neighbors. DO NOT TRESPASS ON NEIGHBORING PROPERTY. Because the shoreline at our access is wooded and rocky we recommend the public sand beach located 5 minutes from the house for sunbathing and swimming with young children. This is a perfect spot for triathlon training from May through October. Cable, WiFi, and a land line for emergency use are included. Air conditioning is limited to the master bedroom and great room with the basement remaining naturally cool at all times. Lots of fans are provided. In spite of what some of our reviews say we do not provide a prepared breakfast. We do however, provide breakfast provisions for our guests. Pets are not allowed under any circumstances as we have family members with allergies. The parking area at the house easily accommodates 2-3 vehicles. Maximum occupancy for this space is 5.

The surprising thing about the neighborhood is that you would expect it to be "busy" throughout the day. However, this house is located across the road from the lake on a large lot surrounded by woods which makes it seem private and quiet. Lake front access is usually quiet and private but it's important to remember to respect boundary lines as well as the privacy of neighbors.

My husband and I like to make certain that our guests are comfortable and have everything necessary for an outstanding stay in the Adirondacks. As hosts we like to treat our guests as friends and often devote our time to supporting them as they discover the possibilities provided by the northeast USA. Since our style of traveling tends to be by the seat of our pants we know how helpful it can be to have someone who knows the area to point you in the right directions.
In our own free time we enjoy kayaking, swimming, fishing, skiing, sleigh riding, ice skating, snowshoeing, gardening, traveling, etc.. My husband Lyle loves all forms of extreme sports and is an excellent and very artistic wood worker. I enjoy a wide variety of artistic endeavors (weaving, book binding, felting, paper making, mixed media projects and clay work), reading, and cooking. Wow, five things I couldn't live without are my husband, family, the great outdoors, art, and good food. If I had to name a sixth it would be fishing. My favorite travel destinations are colorful third world countries, books and movies would be anything suspenseful that ends well, shows need to be visually delightful and/or have strong talent, music that I most often play tends to be restful but now and then I like to turn up the volume and dance around to something much more lively. Food is kind of in a category by itself as I'm a real foodie and love ethnic varieties full of flavor and surprises.
