Loon Lake (Franklin County) house description

Search no further, you've found an excellent home for family reunions and other group functions. The Irish House is NOT an Inn, you will have the place to yourselves. Many have asked so I wanted to make this clear. There are 5 private bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed and private bath (3 full, 1 - 3/4, 1 - 1/2.) you will not find this in any comparable rental, instead you will find rooms with multiple beds jammed into rooms, sharing one or two bathrooms. Your family will be very comfortable here, there are so many places in and around the house to relax. The house is available to one family/group on a weekly basis only. See our cabin rental at the other end of the lake, Loon Lake Landing (discounted rate if you reserve both places.)

The Irish House is one amazing home! There are no pictures that can do this historic mansion justice. The wood work is beautiful, there are all original doors, hardware, bathroom fixtures, claw foot tubs, windows, massive hideaway doors and wood floors. There is a massive Great Room, a large kitchen which is fully stocked, a sitting room between the great room and the kitchen. The wrap around porch has a large screened in area with a ceiling fan. The front porch offers even more room to sit and enjoy the scenery. There is a short walk (about 800 feet) to get to the waterfront area which has a great beach for swimming with sandy bottom and a place to launch the boats. This is a shared beach. We have 2 big canoes, a solo canoe and a rowboat available on site for you to use. There is a patio area with a charcoal grill, picnic table and a fire pit for toasting marshmallows. There is Adirondack furniture throughout mixed in with beautiful antiques. We have an amazing taxidermy collection which includes a large Elk mount, white tail deer, a bear skin rug, LARGE -mouth Bass, squirrel and a crazy looking raccoon.

There is so much that can be done right outside the doors! The defunct golf course is a great place to take a stroll. We are located centrally in the hamlet of Loon Lake which is a quiet community. Fishing is excellent, you will catch many small mouth bass, northern pike, perch (good eatin') and a few elusive Largemouth bass. You can walk or drive a couple of miles to the north branch of the Saranac River for trout fishing. There are many thousands of miles of hiking and biking trails right outside the door and we are in a great location for day hikes to some of the ADK high peaks and even some not so high peaks. Crusher Mountain is at the north end of the lake, it is a very short hike to the top and there is a great view. If you are a little more adventurous then you can hike Loon Lake Mountains and see the fire tower which is about a 6 mile round trip.

We have a large picnic table in the yard for BBQ's and to just sit around with friends and family. Take a day trip to Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, Tupper Lake (the Wild Center) or even Montreal. There are some great restaurants in town, lots of cool shops and many tourist attractions. Maybe take a trip back in time and ride the rails on the ADK Railroad. The Wild Center is a nature museum which is fun for the whole family and is located about 35 minutes away. Even closer is the Paul Smith's Visitors Interpretive Center which is a great place to see wildlife in nature and learn about the local ecology. We have a 'TV' room with a Samsung HD TV + Blue Ray DVD player (there is no TV reception and only a small collection of DVD's so bring a few for rainy days.) We have wireless internet and you can access Netflix. There are a couple board games and I'm told the house is great for Hide and Seek. I could write for days about all of the things you can do while staying at the Irish House, but instead I will leave a little to your imagination. One thing that is for certain, you will enjoy your stay at the Irish House! We look forward to hearing from you...
