Property description

Near the quiet southern shore of the sublimely beautiful Upper Saranac Lake lies this enchanting and peaceful retreat for those who appreciate charm and serenity.
A unique Adirondack estate...this property offers 2 choices; the MAIN HOME rents for $1995/week, 1 week minimum, Saturday to Saturday, during the Summer months of June till Labor Day. Maximum occupancy is strictly limited to 4 during this time.

This home built in 1930 with integrity and graceful, creative character offers 3 bedrooms/3 baths. It is approximately 1800 sq feet (3br/3bath) on 5.3 park like acres. The “un-fitted’ kitchen has been described by many as award worthy with remarkable attention to detail. "Fairytale like" it has been commonly described as and it has repeatedly been said, "The pictures do it no justice"

The bright and spacious CARRIAGE APARTMENT, situated approximately 65' adjacent to the Main Home, is available as an ALTERNATIVE (Not BOTH) ...with a rustic Adirondack charm ambience. Available beginning July 4, 2015. The rental rate for this is $1,100 per week, double occupancy. Occupancy is limited to three (3) during the Summer. Saturday to Saturday; minimum stay of one (1) week during the Summer till Labor Day. Autumn offers a 3 night minimum stay at $175/night, based on availability for double occupancy. Additional adult is $35/night, children are free. Please refer to my calendar here for availability. On the first level is a small sitting porch, a very rustic "Bohemian" kitchen ~ not for those who require luxury but very basically adequate with a double hot plate, full refrigerator, large toaster oven & microwave. The entry room with bath/shower leads upstairs to a King bed, sitting area and writing desk and another room with twin beds and a game table.

All linens are provided as a courtesy, but please do bring your personal BEACH towels.

There is a fire pit for camp fires, and an expansive lawn for games. The lovely deeded, semi-private shared beach (Upper Saranac Lake) is a 5 -7 minute park-like stroll from the home through a quiet, sparsely populated neighborhood. As a back lot location, it offers a "safety buffer zone" with certain peace of mind for those with younger Children or Grandchildren. With a grass lawn, the beach is sandy with a gentle, gradual drop-off. Again, very safe for young children.

The High Peaks Wilderness area, directly across our drive, offers you hiking, biking on endless trails and canoe access to the Stoney Creek Ponds and the Racquette River. The popular Ampersand Trail is minutes up the road, as well as one of our favorites, the Deer Pond trail, a gentle hike for children. Golfers will enJOY the Saranac Inn Golf Club, ten minutes up the road founded at the turn of the century and designed by Scottish pro and architect, Seymour Dunn; this 18 hole course was designed using the natural terrain to provide a great golfing experience with lovely mountain views. Adventurers can traverse 30 miles of waterways that connect the lakes Oseetah, Kiwassa, Lower and Middle Saranac Lakes. Travel through the lock system which raises and lowers your watercraft to the level of the connecting lake. Take note- there is no lock access to the Upper Saranac Lake thereby granting you an extremely quieter lake experience especially at the southern end....it is pristine. At the Paul Smiths Visitors Center, you can explore gentle hiking trails and learn about the Adirondack region. And be sure to check out the whole wild world of the Adirondacks in Tupper Lake at our Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks. (Also known as "The Wild Center") On Sunday, you can ride your bikes or walk to the Chapel bound boat which takes you to non-denominational services at Chapel Island, a short ride away.

Secluded, yet very convenient to all amenities...23 minutes to our Olympic village of Lake Placid, 11 minutes to Saranac Lake, 8 minutes to Tupper Lake, 2.5 hours to Montreal. The Adirondack Airport is a 20 minute drive up rte 30. Please call/email me to inquire ... Joanne 970-376-7806 jhrabovsky@icloud.com

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I live in Aspen, Colorado.... I warmly welcome you to create your fond memories in the 'Healing Woods' this year...

Why the Owner Chose Saranac Lake:
It was geographically close to my parents who were in their chapter of needing my care and provided access to Whiteface Mountain for downhill skiing for my children.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Private, quiet location, yet convenient to amenities...located very near (a 5 minute walk) to the southern shoreline of one of the most beautiful Adirondack Lakes, the Upper Saranac Lake. There is NOT a lot of public traffic on this lake because it is not connected via the lock system, thus a more tranquil experience. The shared beach is never crowded, always lovely with a gradual clean and sandy slope. Listening to the first signs of warmth-the spring peepers, the frogs mating in the pond, the beautiful song of the Wood Thrush in Summer, the wild blueberries in August, the calm, clean tranquility of the lakes, a kayak cruise at dusk with musical calls of the loons...you can find nature's gentle music and quiet amidst all the recreational options here at Indian Carry! Please note: All of my Guest comments refer to my MAIN HOME; this will be my very first rental season of the Carriage apartment which certainly has it's own kind of rustic charm.
