Immaculate waterfront cabin on serene, spring fed lake in heart of Adirondacks. Beautiful views, it's all windows. The cabin is just 15 feet from the lake.
Available year round. Wood fired steam sauna, outdoor lakeside firepit, indoor european wood fireplace. Chefs kitchen with Viking Stove.
Great hiking, swimming, kayaking, skiing, snowmobiling, and simply chilling found here. Kayak, paddleboard, canoe and 4 sets snowshoes.
Get away from civilization and back to nature in the comfort of this immaculate European style chalet. Very serene setting. Sleeps up to 6, but is the perfect romantic getaway for two.
This is for guests looking for a QUIET retreat, who can also be QUIET themselves. We have a strict noise ordinance on this lake. Sound travels easily across water, as does outdoor music, yelling, foul language and other disturbances, so please take this into consideration before booking here. Everyone on the lake sleeps with their windows open, so quiet around the campfire is also a necessity. Of course this means you can be assured you will not be disturbed by others on your holiday as well!
The house sits directly on remote Charley Lake, surrounded by forest and mountains. Enjoy hikes, kayaking, bonfires and stargazing. Relax in the wood fired steam sauna after a day of activities, enjoy dinner outside by the firepit or inside next to the fireplace.
You may experience the sight and sounds of the loons, eagles, mergansers, owls and heron that live on this lake. Coyotes heard often as well. Very quiet and peaceful.
If you are interested in more action, 15 minutes in either direction will take you to the surrounding towns which have ski resorts with great food, live music, restaurants, bigger lakes, more hiking, tennis, basketball, playgrounds, beaches and some stunning waterfalls.
There are 3 bedrooms (one is an open upstairs loft), with a total of 4 beds. One queen, two doubles and one single loft bed. Not appropriate for 5 or 6 singles, as sofa is not to be used for sleeping.
There is one bath (shower only), indoor fireplace, outdoor fire pit and a lakeside wood fired steam sauna. Our sandy beach is perfect for a swim, kayak, canoe, or stand up paddle (we provide all 3) in warmer weather.
The cabin comes with a nice Weber charcoal grill, full chefs kitchen with Viking gas stove and convection oven, dishwasher and quality pots, pans and dishes. High speed internet and a landline provided (no cell service here!). Large flat screen TV for Netflix movies - but no cable - we come here to get away from the news!
Enjoy meals from the lake view dining table, also great for card and board games, or dine outside on the picnic table. There are adirondack chairs for lounging by the lake, and plenty of seating around the fire pit for late night star gazing, marshmallow roasts and storytelling.
SUMMER we supply very nice watercraft for your use on the lake, there is a kayak, a stand up paddle board, a 2 person canoe, adult life preservers, floats and a dock.
WINTER is magical up here! Lots of snow, very private (we are the only house open in winter on our side of the lake - quite possibly on the whole lake, we've never seen anyone), the sauna is tons of fun after a roll in snow. Can snowmobile directly from here onto the amazing snowmobile trails in this area. Oak Mountain Ski Resort is 10 minutes away, it's a family friendly adorable and reasonable resort with amazing food, music and fun year round events. Gore is 40 minute drive. Cross country ski from this house, or visit the infamous Lapland Lake or Garnet Hill resorts. Ice fishing is amazing out front. The house was built for winter comfort. We do suggest bringing an all wheel vehicle to navigate our snowy driveway, it's plowed regularly but you are in the heart of snow country!
What's to LOVE? The house is full of charm, is all windows, eco friendly and kept in immaculate condition so that even the most discerning will be pleased. You will enjoy nice privacy for a waterfront home, a peaceful lake view and easy lake access 15 feet from the deck. We supply detailed lists of where to go and what do to in the area, and the house is well stocked with many of those little things you'd have at home, to make your stay easy and breezy - just bring food and we do ask you to bring your own towels.
What might you NOT Love? The well water has a lot of naturally occurring iron in it, which creates a slight yellow color to it. The water is perfectly fine to shower, brush teeth and even drink, and we do provide filtered drinking water for guest comfort. The septic is too sensitive to allow for use of a washer/dryer - so we don't have them.
Also - this is a very quiet lake. The other residents are in bed by 9PM or so. We have promised our neighbors to have quiet guests, so if you are a loud, raucous or rowdy group this is not for you. Loud noise, outdoor music or innappropriate language WILL cause problems. In winter it's not so much an issue.
We provide nice quality linens for the beds, bath mats and kitchen towels, but ask guests to please bring own bath and beach towels, or, for an additional cleaning fee, we will supply bath towels.
There is a laundromat down the road a bit.
RECYCLES: are a real hassle in this town. Guests must agree to take home recycles if they bring a lot. A few (less than one bag) can be left, but guests must agree to clean, dry and store them separate from the garbage, we provide bins for them. They then have to be hauled to the dump and again separated (by hand!). Our housekeeper simply cannot handle this task if large amounts are left, so our rule here is similar to camping - if you brought it in, plan to take it out. Please plan your shopping list accordingly.
This is a non smoking, no parties, no pets (no exceptions - sorry!), allergen free home. No more than 6 persons, including children. Rates provided are for 2 guests, there is a $10 per person, per day fee for additional persons, regardless of age.
All adult guests must agree to read and follow the house instructions, and to sign our rental agreement. Failure to do so may lead to additional fees.
We do all we can to provide an EXCEPTIONAL experience for our guests, all we ask in return is that you be mindful of the responsibility of caring for our home, it does take some attention to detail. We will email a list of house instructions, directions and list of fun things do and places to go one week prior to arrival.
All guests must be 25 years of age unless accompanied by a parent, or unless otherwise approved. Not appropriate for groups of singles over 4 (there are 4 beds only - couch is not to be used for sleeping)
NOISE: this cabin is on a very quiet lake. Noise travels easily accross water, we have had some complaints about guests yelling at night around the fire pit or while on the kayaks (generally drinking related). This wakes our neighbors, and if it continues we will not be able to rent this cabin. Guests MUST AGREE TO KEEP NOISE to a MINIMUM, especially after 10PM.

We are available by email, our housemanager is local and available should you need anything while there.
Excessive outdoor NOISE is a NO NO! If you can't keep noise level down, please don't choose this house, it WILL be a problem. Late night it's dead quiet here - we need you to be as well or you will wake neighbors who sleep with windows open.
Due to the remote nature of this location, we have well water (no access to town water). There is a lot of iron in the water up here, it is perfectly healthy to use and even to drink, but there is a slight yellow tinge and taste to it. We provide filtered drinking water.
Due to our remote nature and direct waterfront location, we have a sensitive septic system. We cannot have a washer/dryer here as it would overload the system, there is a laundromat down the road about 10 minutes. Guests must bring own towels.
Winter is magical here! But best to bring an all wheel vehicle to navigate our woodsy driveway. It is plowed regularly - but this is snow country!
We have a lot of rules! Sorry - but with 3 fireplaces in an immaculate lakefront home in a remote area with crazy climate changes we have to in order to make it safe for guests and to keep the house in order. So - if your group may not be able to pay attention, this is not the right home. The upside is we supply a lot of really nice things in a spectacular setting!
So, all guests must agree to follow house, recycle, garbage, sauna, fire place, fire pit, and watercraft instructions and sign our lease, which will be emailed after reservation.
RECYCLES: very strict recycle rules in this town. Must agree to follow the detailed instructions, and if you bring a lot of recycles (beer, wine bottles, soda cans, etc), you must agree to take them home with you, we simply cannot handle taking them all to the dump after every rental.
FIREPLACES: we have 3 of them - if you choose to use them, you must be willing to dispose of the ash in the proper and safe manner before departure. Same with the grill.
AGE: All guests must be 25 years of age or older unless accompanied by parent or pre-approved by us. Not an appropriate house for more than 4 single persons.
NO PARTIES, no guests at the house other than those specified on the lease, and noise must be kept to a minimum outside, especially after 10PM, as noise carries easily across the lake. NOT the place for a drink fest with friends, so please look elsewhere if this is your plan.

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!
