The cottage is located on 1st lake, at the end of a cove and much quieter than other places. This area has less boat traffic so you will feel good about your teenagers kayaking and fishing on their own. You won't get jet skis going back and forth. Pack your binoculars so you can be thrilled by loon sightings swimming about, whose sound is so symbolic of the Adirondacks. You should see some amazing sunrises and sunsets when the loons are most active. Just an 8-minute drive from Old Forge, this private cottage has everything you could need on an Adirondack vacation.
The sandy beach area has gradual walk-in, perfect for kids to play in the water, it’s shallow enough, quite a way’s out so lots of space for the kids to splash about. The sandy beach provides easy lake access for getting kayaks in and out of the lake.
The lake side has a raised porch and lower slate patio with gas grill are on the sunny side of the property. Sit in Adirondack chairs or the built-in picnic table style bench that make for an enjoyable lunch facing the lake. You can watch the kids swimming or playing in the grassy yard. At night enjoy the outside fire pit, lessening to the loons.
AIR CONDITIONING with CLIMATE CONTROL:
The Heat Pump System provides both Air Conditioning & Heat. A Heat pump functions as an Air Conditioner in the summer and a heater in the winter as long as the outside air temperature is above freezing. When the outside temp drops below Zero, the back-up, “Propane Furnace” will provide “Emergence Heat”. We also added an Ultraviolet (UV) light to improve the air quality and have a humidifier for dry winter air.
