'The Little Camp' is located on a small, private lake. There is no public access to the lake; only owners and guests. There are only 25 - 30 cabins on the entire lake. Here guests will enjoy privacy and seclusion with few neighbors nearby. Within a 20 minute drive guests will find a wide range of activities for all ages. Six Flags Great Escape is 25 minutes away as are several water parks, white water rafting, miniature golf courses, para sailing and various speed water sports on Lake George.

Outlet shopping is fantastic with a grouping of several outlet and factory store plazas in the 'Million Dollar Half Mile'.

Visitors interested in history might enjoy The Adirondack Museum at Blue Mt. Lake (about 45 minutes), Fort Ticonderoga or Fort William Henry.

The Hyde Collection in Glens Falls is a gem for art lovers. The Hyde House, it's architecture and the art collection housed within is absolutely a must see. Rembrandt, Picasso, Eakins and Ingres to name a few of the masters hanging at The Hyde. Rotating exhibitions have included Ansel Adams and Georgia O'Keefe in recent years. Children's activities in the art studio are coordinated with museum exhibitions. Docent guided tours available.

In the Saratoga Springs area guests can enjoy thoroughbred racing and the Racino. The Saratoga Performing Arts Center is the summer home of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the NYC Ballet as well as The Freihofer Jazz Festival and rock concerts. Traditionally, people came to the Saratoga area for the health benefits of the mineral waters which can still be sampled at various well springs throughout the National Park and in town. Shopping in the charming Victorian Saratoga downtown with it's eclectic boutiques guests can find unusual and one of a kind items. Relax in Congress Park or take a ride on the antique carousel. Explore Saratoga Battlefield for some history. The National Car Museum is a visit to vehicles of the past. The National Museum of Dance is beautiful and interesting. Dining in Saratoga Springs is excellent. From fine dining to BBQ, Saratoga offers foodies a wide range of culinary experiences.

From the Glens Falls area to Saratoga golf courses abound.

In the winter ski areas include West Mt. which also has sliding, Gore and the trails at Killington, Vt.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Stephen was brought up in the Oneonta, NY area. He was employed for 20+ years by the D&H Railroad, then CP Rail. He is now a rail executive with Fingerlakes Rail and a rail consultant. Suzan was raised in Northern NJ, taught art for 30 years in upstate NY. In retirement I now do volunteer work, manage our properties and am a docent at The Hyde Collection.

Why the Owner Chose Lake Luzerne:
I spent every summer here at Efner Lake. My parents purchased our cabin when I was a child. Our cabin is our summer home. Stephen & I purchased the new property as an investment.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
This property offers a quiet, beautiful place to relax and enjoy Adirondacks. It's the best of both worlds: Varied activities within a 30 minute or less drive, but you return to the peace, the incredible air and water of the cabin site. The cabin itself has been described by previous guests as 'Adirondack chic'. The knotty pine paneling decorated with original paintings is cozy. There is plenty of space, both inside and outside for gathering the family or group together or going your own way for a walk, a swim, a nap or whatever makes you relaxed.
