Property description

Beautiful waterfront log home situated only 1 mile from Old Forge. Five bedrooms including 2 masters, one large bunk room, one room with double and one room with two twins. There are two living areas (one for TV, and one for fireside gatherings, family games and billiards) and a beautiful screened porch overlooking lake. The large island kitchen with breakfast bar is fully equipped for simple or sophisticated meals. Each master has a private bath, along with two other generously sized bathrooms for the secondary bedrooms. The front outdoor deck features a Hot Spring Hot Tub for post boating or swimming warm ups. There is also a full size laundry room.

All of this with a large circle driveway for plenty of cars or a vehicle with a snowmobile trailer, adds to the convenience of this property.

Car: Recommended

Experience all of the seasons in the western Adirondack Mountains. In the winter, snowmobiling on the largest trail system in the northeast and skiing at McCauley Mountain, or cross country skiing or snowshoeing are favorite activities.

In the summer it is a water wonderland! Boating and all of the watersports are our favorites. Or for family fun, visit Enchanted Forest Water Safari, only 1 mile away! Other favorites include hiking, Kayaking, and shopping in Old Forge. On a rainy day, the historic Strand Theater has a variety of first run movies. In addition, The Tobie Trail is a favorite among cyclists who would like a challenging ride.

Autumn is the season for beauty. Hiking and/ or long drives through the area are popular from September through October.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: Two families each with three children purchased and renovated this home in 1998. One family is from Rochester, NY and the other from Austin, Texas but both shared a love of this region of the Adirondacks. Every summer and winter, either together or separately, memories have been made for both families and kids as we enjoy all that this area has to offer when away from work and school. The parents had grown up traveling to the area on vacations and wanted to continue family traditions with their children.

Why the Owner Chose Old Forge:
This home can handle the group of 14 easily and is most certainly located in an ideal spot given the one mile distance to Old Forge and the easy access to all of the desired recreation for each particular season. This may be rustic style, but is not rustic living; all of the conveniences of home are here!

The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Fall in love with the natural beauty inside and outside of this home. The large windows give way to breathtaking views of the water and the huge pine trees. The hot tub on the front deck and the two story stone fireplace will ease your chills, and soothe your soul as you've escaped the busy world. This is truly a home in which to simply enjoy family time.
