Isle Rest is a charming "summer camp" built in 1895. One of the first homes built on Star Lake, it sits on a penninsula in the center of the lake, affording great views and access to both halves of the lake. It has its own bay with two small islands and a long point, all loaded with balsom and white pine. The lake is spring fed and the clarity is over twenty feet down - none better in the Adirondacks. The home has been in the same family over one hundred years. It is rustic but comfortable. Has its own lean-to with outdoor fire pit, a boat house, 1 canoe, 1 paddle boat, and 1 motorized party barge for touring the lake in comfort!
All bedrooms are on the second floor. They all have carpet on the floor and original wood walls and ceilings. Each room has at least one window overlooking pine trees and the lake.
Bring your own sheets/pillowcases. Blankets provided. Will provide sheets for additional $30 per bed per stay....moreless

About the owner: I grew up in Star Lake with my father where we owned and operated a hotel. Isle Rest was passed down to my generation from my uncle, and has now been passed down to my daughters' generation. I have spent every summer of my adult life here, and I personally know almost everyone on the lake, Isle Rest is a very special place that will always be home in my heart.
Why the Owner Chose Star Lake: This is one of the first houses built on the lake and has been in our family over 100 years. It has the most shoreline of any other property. It is both private and inviting, and you are able to enjoy both halves of Star Lake from one location!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Star Lake is a unique experience, partially because of the 'Party Barge' atmosphere in nice afternoons.
