Croghan lodge description

Our lakefront lodge, with our own beach, is a luxurious Adirondack Lodge situated on seven very private acres. We supply everything you need for a great vacation. Our lakefront features a beautiful sandy beach, a dock, fishing boats, a canoe, and a kayak. We have nature trails throughout the property. You will enjoy the beauty of our peaceful lake. Take a boat out fishing, or just explore the many coves and beaches. We have outdoor grills, a big outdoor fire pit, and plenty of firewood. The Great Room features a beautiful stone fireplace, leather furniture, Sirius Satellite Radio, DirectTV, and DVD or VHS movies. Our new game room has a Pool Table, a Foosball Table, Electronic Dart Game, and a card table. Our kitchen features stainless steel appliances, all the conveniences of home, and a large dining table that overlooks the lake. The bedrooms and baths are well appointed and very clean, and we supply clean linens at no charge. The second floor has a fantastic view of the lake, and an outside balcony. You'll see plenty of wildlife including deer, eagles, loons, and more!


Shopping/supplies: The village of Croghan is 7 miles away and offers a Nice n Easy Grocery Shoppe that has food, camping supplies, gas, propane, souvenirs, etc. There is also Monnats IGA, a full line grocery store. The Croghan Meat Market is famous for Croghan Bologna and also offers great steaks, lobster tails, etc. Vinny's Pizza is on Main Street as well as Schultz's Restaurant. Good ol' Wishy's is a local legend, a real old fashioned ice cream parlor. The Beaver River flows through town and at one time powered the Croghan Island Mill which is still an operating lumber mill. There's a nice park in town with a playground, tennis court, ball diamonds, etc. Croghan is famous for Maple Syrup and is home of the American Maple Museum on Main Street. The Northern New York Railroad Museum is also on Main Street as is Stumps Laundramat, a Liquor Store, and Video Rental, Monnat - Nortz Mobil is a full service gas station on Main Street. Buckingham Hardware on Main is also an Outdoor Sports Store.

Effley Falls Reservoir: Effley Falls Reservoir is part of the Beaver River Canoe Route. The Beaver River flows into the east end of the lake. We sometimes beach the boats there and slide down the waterfalls, or venture upstream to explore the river and the surrounding remote forest. The lake has some great beaches and coves to explore. Most of the shoreline is undeveloped. We love the peace and quiet, even on holiday weekends, There are no public boat launches on the lake so access is restricted to those who own property, or those who canoe or kayak the Beaver River Canoe Route. Aside from our own private beach, there are three other really nice sandy beaches, one on the east end accessible only by water, one on the west end, and our favorite is on the North Shore which is also only accessible by water.

The Property: Our Lodge was newly constructed in 2006. All furniture and fixtures were purchased new, and expressly to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment. Our property is over 7 acres in size, and bordered by water on two sides. Our beach and dock area is great for swimming, fishing, boating, digging in the sand, or just relaxing. We also have marked hiking trails along the water's edge, and also a trail to the highest point of a ridge on the property that offers a long range view across the lake and forests beyond, We have a great outdoor fire-pit overlooking the lake and plenty of firewood on hand. Most of the property is wooded, but there are two nicely maintained lawns, one behind the lodge, and one overlooking the beach. Play ball, or just relax in a lawn chair. Our huge front porch has mahogany flooring and overlooks the lake. It's a great shady and cool spot to relax on a hot summer's day. Included are two fishing boats (we supply the gas), a 17 foot canoe, and a 14 foot kayak.

                          The area around Croghan is a mix of hardwood and pine forests. The local farms and quaint farm markets offer locally grown and prepared foods. This is a great area for exploring by car, bike, by hiking, or by ATV or Snowmobile. There are remote beaches, clear springs, and waterfalls accessible only by water from our lodge for the ultimate Adirondack retreat!

                          Why the Owner Chose Croghan:
                          Our property is pristine and perfect for a quiet, and relaxing, vacation with family and friends. We built this home in 2006. We have designed it as a luxurious Adirondack rereat, with all the amenities of a modern home. You will feel the Adirondack experience in the decor, the pictures, and the awesome views. We enjoy the quiet, you can actually sit outside and hear the stream which flows into our cove! The property is bordered by water on two sides, and has over 900 feet of private lakefront featuring a nice sandy beach and a dock.
