Property description

Classic Adirondack log cabin located on 6+ acres of private land, with magnificent mountain views and 400 feet of lakefront . There is a large stone fireplace in the living room, a screened porch, 3 outside fireplaces, a waterfront deck with tete-a-tete, canoes and a rowboat to launch from your own dock. Have breakfast in the fully functional kitchen; refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, blender, pots, pans, dishes -- all the necessities. The new gas grill is ideal for a cookout. The master bedroom offers an Adirondack log bed and bathroom, while there is a loft area that sleeps four and a hide-a-bed sofa in front of the fireplace. Watch Satellite TV, DVD movies or just sit outside on your Adirondack chairs, by the campfire, and appreciate the star filled sky.

Surrounded by the sounds of nature you will be reminded that you do have neighbors - loons, ducks, Blue Heron, etc.., Completely private on 6+ acres with 400 feet of waterfront. In the summer pick blueberries down by the dock or across the road. Plenty of dirt roads leading right from the cabin are well suited for hiking, nature walking or biking to discover the beauty and wilderness of Adirondack Park.

The Lakes: Mountain view lake is a small private quiet mountain lake home to beavers, ducks and loons. Canoe via a channel and discover Indian Lake. Indian Lake is bigger and better suited for swimming, and tubing. Both lakes offer lots of fishing opportunities; perch, pike and small-mouth bass. Small kids will enjoy the sandy beach area with a wade in point on Indian Lake while older kids (including our labs) have been known to jump right from the cabin's private dock. Both lakes are about 3 miles long -Mt. View is narrow and Indian Lake is wide. The lakes are connected and offer fishing opportunities with small motors, kayaks, canoe, or rowboats.

There are lots of bigger lakes nearby: Meacham Lake, Saranac Lake, Lake Plaid, Mirror Lake, etc.., Fly fishing is renowed at Salmon River. Deer River flow only 20 minutes away offers abundant wildlife, large pike, easy canoe launch and even some trout! Enjoy the St. Regis canoe area and make sure to bring the camera.

The Mountains: Hiking, walking, biking, jogging, running. Whatever you can do with a mountain the Adirondacks is the place to do it. Hike Debar Mountain at Meacham Lake Campground or hike to the top of Azure Mt. with the working firetower but make sure you 'take a rock to the top' to prevent wind erosion. Look for soaring hawks and spectacular views of the St. Regis Canoe area. Dauphin Nature park is only .25 miles from the cabin's front door and offers lots of hiking opportunities without the drive. Paul Smith's Visitor Center offers hiking and walking opportunities for all levels from a climb up Jenkins Mountains to wide dirt paths for toddlers.

The fall is a spectacular time of the year. The Adirondack mountains are encased in autumn splendor and nature is a master artist with a variety of colors; gold, red, orange, etc.... Visit the High Peaks in Keene Valley and be prepared to fall in love!

The cabin: Where do you go to relax? No work, no traffic, no cell phones and no stress. The only thing you have to do is what you want. Build a fire, grab a blanket and listen to the distinct sound of each raindrop while you relax, read or take a nap. Get dressed and get that heart pumping with a challenging hike. Look for wildlife while you hop on the bike or grab the fishing rod and reel in some fun. Rediscover your own voice in nature's golden silence.

Build an outside fire and toast the smores! Throw a log on the indoor fireplace, play cards, watch a movie or look for stars in the nighttime sky. Stay up late and let your body's alarm clock wake you. Snuggle up next to the fire, partner or family pet. Canoe, kayak or take a dip from the dock. You decide! The most important thing to spend is your time. You won't remember the minutes just the moments. Enjoy each moment with yourself or with your family at the cabin on the lake in the mountains.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: My wife and I are retired public school teachers, who have spent our summers in the Adirondack Mountains for all of our married life. We find the mountains offer us a welcome refuge from the busy work world and a playground that allows us to pursue a variety of interesting and enjoyable activities with our family.

Why Mountain View Lake:
Our lakeside log cabin is located on 6+ acres of Adirondack forest land, with no visible neighbors (except for camps on the other side of the lake). This very private type of setting is hard to find on most Adirondack Lakes and was this location, coupled with the attractive, rustic log cabin that resulted in our purchase of Camp Critters 3 years ago.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Past guests have found their time at the cabin to offer a most peaceful, relaxing vacation. There are walking and hiking trails just beyond the cabin's entrance road; the lake offers enjoyable canoeing, kayaking and boating opportunities; and fishing at the lake and on its feeder streams is excellent.
