" It's magical. I'm thinking it's time to return."

I stayed here for a long weekend in 2012, or thereabouts. I think of that trip again and again. Despite traveling the world, there is something about seeing all those stars from a waterside fire at that secluded cabin. Loons and eagles, ancient sailboats. We were there when the blueberries were ripe. It's magical. I'm thinking it's time to return.

" It was a magical week, and I wanted it to be twice as long."

We had a wonderful week stay here in July 2016. The cabin is small but beautiful, and the setting is unbelievably lovely. You are surrounded on all sides by enormous, beautiful Adirondack Great Camps, which makes for wonderful exploring around the lake in your canoe. The setting is unbelievably marvelous. Nothing compares to having coffee on the dock, watching the sun rise and listening to the loons. It was a magical week, and I wanted it to be twice as long. We are planning to return next year for a longer stay. The hosts are great, friendly and accessible. While you could easily spend an entire week curled up in an Adirondack chair watching the light on the lake, you can also have a very active vacation here. The paddling in the area is amazing. If you like to hike as well as paddle, there are plenty of hikes reachable by canoe from the cabin, and a nice short hike leading straight from the back yard to a beautiful pond. The one thing I would have done differently was bring more boats! The canoe is perfect for exploring the lake and not too heavy for short portages, but a small packboat would have been great for exploring some areas with longer portages and I was wishing I had brought my small sailboat, as the wind on the lake was perfect for sailing. It's hard to find dog-friendly properties, and the cabin is a great place to stay if you enjoy having fun with your dog. Between playing fetch off the dock and hikes from the canoe, our dog had a marvelous time, and is probably still plotting how to get us to quit our jobs and move there full-time. I was a bit nervous that we would find a water access camp limiting, but this worry proved groundless. The 20-30 minute paddle back to our car was a snap, and the canoe provided at the cabin is perfect for hauling anything you might have forgotten to pack back from a supply run. (It is also, at it turns out, the perfect boat to train your dog to ride in a canoe, nice and steady.) In short, the cabin is perfect for anyone looking for a beautiful bit of quiet lake wilderness, with all the comforts of a snug cabin. Overall, one of the best Adirondack trips I've ever taken, and I'm already planning our return!
