Caroga Lake house description

This is a fantastic year round getaway location for the family. We are located in the Adirondack State Park at the base of Royal Mountain ski area, No need to spend the big bucks on Gore or White Face when this quaint family friendly mountain is in our back yard and only costs $35 for the day ($50 gets you Lift, Rentals, and a lesson). Our area also has Cross Country skiing and ice fishing within 3 miles at East and West Caroga Lake. With 5 more lakes, a golf course, and tons of hiking trails within 5 miles of the house. Just imagine what the other 6 million acres of the adirondack park offers you. The cottage on this property sleeps two adults in a queen bed room, two more adults in a fold out bed, and up to 3 children in a bunk room. Additional accommodations including beds for up to 14 more adults are available for additional fees, please contact owner for more details. The cottage on this property is very warm and homey and includes a fantastic Jukebox and Movie theater style popcorn machine. The back yard is a wide open space with a large private pond in the back corner stocked with fish for the kids. There is a fair amount of land and parking on this property making it perfect for family picnics. Feel free to ask about some of the area restaurants for take-out, delivery, and catering options.

WINTER ACTIVITIES:
-Skiing at Royal Mountain - The mountain is very reasonably priced ($35 lift ticket / $50 ticket, lessons & rentals, kids 5 and under are free). The lifts are accessed through a trail out the back of the property.
-Snow Cat Rides – only special VIP guests of the mountain are invited to join Corduroy Joe (Chief Mountain Engineer) on an after hours groomer ride up the mountain.
-Snowmobile Riding – Access all of the Adirondack snowmobile trails through the back yard.
-Ice Fishing – visit dozens of nearby lakes
Snowshoeing and Cross Country Skiing – Explore the picturesque trails and enjoy the landscape.

SUMMER ACTIVITIES:
-Golfing - Nick Stoner Golf Course is just 5 min down the road.
-Fishing – Visit dozens of nearby lakes and streams. You can even head out to the back yard with the kids and fish in our pond or one of the larger ponds at the base of the mountain.
-Motocross - Royal Mountain is one of the few stops on the regional motor-cross and supper-cross circuit hosting races on Wednesday nights during the summer and larger events on several weekends.
-Boating – With several lakes and streams within 5 min of the house and tons more within 30 min there is no shortage of places to boat. If you do not have a boat you can make arrangements to rent our pontoon boat.
Water Skiing – East Caroga Lake is a great lake to find that early morning glass for a slalom or barefoot run. The lake is generally great for recreational skiing all day. Regardless if you are a beginner or expert you can make arrangements with the owners to have a competition ski boat at the lake to take you out skiing, tubing, wake boarding, air chair, knee board, etc. If you are interested in lessons be sure to ask.
Hiking – Being inside the Adirondack Park there are limitless opportunities for day and multi day hikes just minutes from the house.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: My wife and I are both experienced snow and water ski instructors. We are also avid boaters. We own businesses in the Albany area and enjoy spending time at the house with our three kids. We ski in the winter and spend the summers on the area lakes boating and waterskiing.

                  Why the Owner Chose Caroga Lake:
                  We chose this vacation spot because there are so many things to do in very close proximity to the house.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This property is very scalable and can accommodate a small family or medium size group (ask about accommodations for 14 additional people). It is great for winter and summer. We have a lot of contacts in the area and can help you coordinate food services water or snow ski lessons, boat rides on any of the area lakes. Just let us know what you like and we can help you put it together. Additional Information can be found on the Caroga Lake Town Website: http://www.carogalakeny.com/activities.html
