Saranac Lake cabin description

The Loony Bin at Loon Lake in Franklin, NY is the perfect Adirondack retreat. Located directly on 100 feet of waterfront, the cottage offers a peaceful setting to enjoy all that the Adirondacks have to offer. Use of two kayaks, a rowboat and a canoe are included in the rental price. Enjoy boating on Loon Lake in addition to swimming in its clear waters. Watch the loons swim by frequently and listen to their intriguing calls. Fish until your heart is content catching lake trout, bass, perch and pike. Walk the areas' roads and paths gathering fresh berries. Admire the gorgeous star filled sky at night free of a city's light pollution.
When a trip into the 'city' is warranted, make an easy drive to Saranac Lake (20 minutes) or Lake Placid (30 minutes). These towns offer excellent dining both refined and casual and boast antique stores, novelty shops and specialty stores. No matter where you decide to go, you will be surrounded by the gorgeous Adirondack mountains.
Explore area museums such as the Wild Center in Tupper Lake or the Interpretive Center near Paul's Smith college. Both host awesome nature exhibits as well as trail systems.
The Loony Bin is a pet friendly cottage. Please email us for more information about what we have to offer.
