Property description

Ready to unwind and relax in the beautiful Adirondacks? Our cottage is a comfortable 3 bedroom / 1 bathroom home with a fully stocked kitchen, gas BBQ, screened porch and large deck, all just a short walk from the private Friends Lake. Friends Lake has no public access, so it's just you and your neighbors playing at the lake! Enjoy the privacy of our large deck, let the kids play in the yard, and stroll about 1/3 of a mile down to the beach.

Don't miss the ice cream shop in Chestertown, and drinks and/or dinner at the Friends Lake Inn is highly recommended. About twenty minutes away you'll find the quaint town of North Creek. Try out Gore Mountain for a hike or to mountain bike the ski slopes. Just a little past Chestertown, in Pottersville, explore the Natural Stone Bridges and Caves… let the kids do a little gem mining! The list of options is endless… but of course, you could always spend all of your time relaxing on the beach. :-)

Our cottage sleeps 6 with one queen bed, one double bed and two twin beds. Parking for 2 cars on the gravel driveway.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We love this little house! We purchased it as a ski house with the partial intent to bribe our kids into continuing to spend their weekends skiing with us by letting them bring a friend for a sleep over weekend. But for now, they are young enough that they still enjoy hanging out with Mom & Dad! We will also use the house for a few weeks in the summer, but primarily rent it out for the season. The kids need braces, bills for travel sports… yadda, yadda, yadda. ;-)

Why the Owner Chose Chestertown:
We love the Adirondacks… whether it's winter or summer, being in the woods near a lake is incredibly relaxing. In this location we have found there is plenty of privacy at the house, and a lot of very nice and fun neighbors to hang out with at the lake. It's a true second home to us and while you stay here, we hope it is for you as well. Enjoy a quiet morning paddle around the lake in the kayaks, head over to Friends Lake Inn one night for an amazing dinner, try your hand at Garnet mining or get crazy at the Adirondack Extreme Adventure park. There is no shortage of things to do here!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Our house is in a small community where most of the properties are owner occupied, so you won't have a crazy party blasting next door. And if you ask the neighbors a question about the area, you'll actually get a knowledgable response. :-)
