Property description

This boat-access-only camp is located on Cranberry Lake on the northern edge of the Five Ponds Wilderness area. The Camp comfortably sleeps 8 people between the main house and four closely-situated sleeping cabins. Enjoy a private dock and 2-bay boathouse with pristine views in this quiet corner of the Adirondacks. Starkey's Point is a 6-mile boat ride from Wanakena and the village of Cranberry Lake. Please visit our website for more information and to view 360-degree views of the property: www.starkeyspoint.com.
-------------------
NOTE: you cannot drive to Starkey's Point, you must bring your own boat or hire a water taxi from the village of Cranberry Lake. Because this rental website struggles to map homes without street addresses, the locator map is not accurate. See the map in the gallery for a more precise location for Starkey's Point on Cranberry Lake.

Guests can park for free in Cranberry Lake at the public parking lot behind the village library, which has room for boat trailers. Guests may launch their own boats at the Cranberry Lake state boat launch off Route 3 (parking also available).
-------------------
This is a private and secluded camp without electricity, running water, phone, or cell service. There are solar-powered lights in the main camp and all sleeping cabins, but otherwise be prepared to unplug. Plan to bring drinking water with you or a filter for the lake: we are completely off the grid.

Starkey's main camp sleeps between 4 and 5 people in two bedrooms. The main camp has two double beds and one single futon. The main camp has a bright and airy great room with fireplace and wood stove. The kitchen has a 2-burner propane cooktop and mid-sized propane refrigerator with separate freezer, and a Weber gas grill for your use. Tall covered porches on both sides of the camp look out over the lake in both directions. The wood-fired hot-tub has room for four adults with a view over quiet and secluded Chair Rock Flow, the bay south of the camp. There is plenty of split firewood for your use. Water is a short and level haul from the lake at our private dock. Our rustic camp has a comfortable outhouse and no indoor running water.

The property is mostly wooded with a grassy glade near the center. In the woods around the glade are four detached sleeping cabins, all within sight of each other. Marcy cabin, the largest, sleeps 3 people in 1 double bed and 1 twin bed. The Upper and Lower Haystack cabins are matching cabins with two twin beds each. Skylight cabin sleeps 2 in 1 double bed.

All beds have 6 inch foam mattresses with protective mattress covers, pillows, and light blankets suitable for summer and autumn temperatures. Guests should bring their own bed sheets, pillow cases, washcloths, and towels. Pots, pans, plates, glasses, mugs, and cooking utensils are available for 8.

Leave your boat in our 2-bay boathouse. Swim from the 30-foot private dock. Two aluminum canoes (15' and 17') with paddles and basic life vests are stored for your use on the canoe rack.

Minimum stay is 7 nights with changeover on Saturday. Check-in is 3p Saturday and check-out is the following Saturday morning by 10a. Pets will be considered. The camp should be swept clean, all dishes washed and put away, and all garbage MUST taken with you. We require a refundable $250 security deposit and will deduct costs of trash removal from the deposit.

There are a number of wilderness-related activities in the area. The Cranberry Lake 50 trail, a 50-mile foot path that circles the lake, is a 1/2 mile paddle from the dock. From the same trailhead you can make a beautiful day-hike by walking to Low's Lake, about 7 miles round trip. The trail to Low's does not have any climbs, but does require hikers to ford several small streams without bridges. Or, for a longer, more strenuous hike, you can make the round-trip to Cat Mountain, about 12 miles there and back. Views from Cat Mountain are spectacular! Also visit sliding rock, a waterfall over sloping bedrock into a wide swimming hole that is a local attraction (1.5 miles by boat to South Flow).

There is also fishing on the lake, a wilderness trout stream on the way to Low's Lake and, of course, lounging at Starkey's Point. Fishing licenses may be purchased at the Wanakena General Store or in Cranberry Lake at the municipal building on Route 3.

We can't wait to share it all with you! We look forward to your reservation,

Aaron & Tammy
