Very Romantic Cabin in the Woods, on the Water, with Ultimate Privacy, there are no neighbors. Cabin is all windows, sits over the lake with amazing views any time of year. Private boathouse with 4 kayaks and a canoe.
Common sightings are ducks, birds, otter, loons, owls, eagles, and an occasional canoe gliding by.
Great for adventures and couch potatoes alike, you can experience the beauty of the outdoors from the comfort of the sofa.
2 sets snowshoes provided in winter.
If your requested dates aren't available, please see our other listings, we have 5 rental houses in the area, all unique and very nice.
This Piseco Lake house is named Camp Starlite. She has 500 feet of private waterfront with dock and boathouse. 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed, one with a double bed. There is one bath (shower only), an outdoor shower (in the warmer months), indoor fireplace, outdoor firepit, full kitchen, large and small weber grill, wifi, 40" flat screen for DVD's and netflix movies (but no cable). There is a reading and tv room with a gorgeous views of the lake for those lazy days.
SPRING, SUMMER, FALL:
Lots of lakes, rivers and mountains to hike to and explore, or take advantage of our incredible location directly on the best kayaking spot.
Kayak 10 minutes to the right to Lake Piseco where you can dock your kayak on one of the small islands and enjoy a swim in the clear water with sandy bottom of Lake Piseco. If you are an experienced kayaker, 30 minutes to the left of us is remote Big Bay Lake - this may require a carry over some rocks dependent on level of water at the time (level changes daily).
The Boathouse provides very easy access to the 4 kayaks, one canoe and lake floats, so no need to carry them anywhere. Most of our waterfront is too shallow to swim, but is amazing for kayaking and seeing fish and wildlife watching. We kayak 10 minutes to Lake Piseco for swimming. Boats available May 10-Oct 30.
The inside of Camp Starlite is like being inside a snow globe - it's all windows, so snowstorms are an amazing experience here.
A unique feature of this location is that the lake out front does not freeze (it's moving water), so there are water views and active wildlife year round.
Terrific winter hiking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and downhill skiing in this area.
We supply a list of local hikes, restaurants and other attractions. An all wheel drive vehicle is necessary to navigate the woodsy driveway in snow season. The other option is to park at end of driveway and walk in.
MORE ABOUT THIS CABIN
This is a no parties, no smoking, no pets, allergy sensitive household. Due to our close proximity to the water, we have limited septic and well capacity, so we have a strict 4 person limit on the property at all times. We do our best to keep a pristine and very comfortable, clean home for our guests, we are sure even the most discerning travelers will be very happy here.
This is an exceptionally private, secluded property, however it is not remote. It is easy to get to, we are down a private 200ft dirt driveway directly off Rt 8. There is a small bridge nearby that separates the outlet (where we are) from Piseco Lake, and you can hear (but can't see) the cars going over the bridge, which is the only thing we would change if we could.
Our minimum stay varies throughout the year...please send exact dates and we will let you know the policy for that time of year.
Minimum age to rent is 25 years of age unless otherwise approved or with a parent.
Everything except one owners cabinet and use of the boathouse is limited to May 10-Oct 30.

We are available via phone and email and have a local house manager and a housekeeper who can both assist while there if needed.
This is for independent travelers who are excited about privacy, but willing to be a bit self sufficient if something comes up. We are not local. The cabin is in the woods, in the heart of the Adirondacks, stuff happens. We have a local house manager, a housekeeper and professionals (electricians, plumbers etc) who can assist. Be aware that in Winter - it's stunningly gorgeous - but the weather and property conditions vary. We plow regularly - but even after a plow the driveway can be tricky, possibly requiring you to walk in (happened once winter 2014 and once again in 2017). We supply shovels and sand so you can help yourself after a storm. So if you are expecting a guarantee of zero hassles/challenges this may not be the property for you. We do have a (very expensive!) generator, so during the occasional power outages that happen in the ADK's, you will not go without power.
Our housekeeper works Mondays and Fridays in spring, summer and fall, so rentals must begin and end on one of those days. Winter is a little more flexible, please ask.
This is a back to nature experience, in an exceptionally comfortable cabin. Lots of hiking and outdoorsy stuff to do here, or simply stay inside and enjoy the view!
We supply many things most rentals do not, such as spices, napkins, paper towels, plastic wrap, tin foil, washer detergent, sponges, honey, sugar, blender, crockpot, teapot and more - we try to supply those things you'd have at home but wouldn't necessarily think to shop for. It's our goal to make this an exceptional, easy and breezy experience for all our guests!

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!
