Saranac Lake cottage description

This gorgeous home is nestled among the pines on a quiet, peaceful peninsula on spectacular Upper Saranac Lake, one of the true gems of the Adirondacks. With hundreds of feet of shoreline, a dock, sandy swimming area and raft, you can spread out at the water’s edge and enjoy the crystal clear lake, great views of the islands and distant mountains. You can tour the countless bays or fish the best spots in the canoe or kayaks provided for your use. You are welcome to bring a boat or you can rent one at a nearby marina. You can tie your boat to the dock.

You'll love the lake and the region: Upper Saranac Lake is absolutely beautiful and is one of the cleanest lakes in the Adirondacks. The water is crystal clear, weed-free, and stocked annually with game fish.

The Adirondack region abounds with places to visit, mountains to climb, hiking and biking trails, State Parks, and for those who love adventure, some of the best white-water rafting anywhere in the country. There's even a casino not far away.

This unique home, the Octagon, is at the private end of a peninsula with over 2,000 feet of waterfront and manicured trails and walkways along the water's edge. It is truly stunning everywhere you look.

There is a huge great room with a fully outfitted kitchen, dining and living areas, complete with a wood burning stove. No matter where you are, you have views of the lake. The woodwork is phenomenal throughout the house and many of the furnishings were made by Thomas Moser or Jan Hollyer, another master craftsman in VT.

All living is on one floor. The master bedroom features a king bed, a full master bath, and a sliding door to the deck overlooking the lake. The second bedroom has two queens and the third bedroom has one queen. There is another full bath with a stainless steel shower. The studio bedroom, just 75' from the house, has a queen bed, but no bath.

When you’re not outside, there is a TV with Direct TV®, DVD player, radio, lots of games, books, and puzzles to keep everyone amused, and of course, high-speed wireless Internet connectivity. The wood stove keeps it warm and toasty on those sometimes chilly nights and is a great place to catch up on your reading, share a conversation, or have those belly-laughing good times when you’re gathered together. The house is heated as well.

The lean-to and fire pit overlooking the water are the perfect setting for cookouts, campfires, S'mores and sing-a-longs. The grill-meisters will love the huge, fully adjustable grill that is part of the fire pit.

Whether you are outside or in, you will absolutely love it here. Come stay at the Octagon and create memories that will last a lifetime.
