Property description

Boat is REQUIRED. You must have a boat to access this property as there are no roads.

It is remote and incredible, and traveling to it presents unique Long Lake opportunities for adventure!

Located in the Adirondack Park the best kept secret in New York State and the northeast, this Adirondack style 'camp' overlooks Long Lake, with docking, private beach, and a view of Buck Mountain.

First off, you're going to need a boat. This is an incredible, boat accessible property and we promise if you love a lake vacation, you'll be blown away by this experience. Boat rentals are available at the Long Lake Marina 518.624.2266, or bring your own. If and when you do rent a boat, make sure it goes fast, because it is 7 miles 'down the lake' and it takes about 15 minutes travel time if you have a 75 HP motor. Anything less than that, be prepared with snacks, a camera for photo moments and patience. Boat is best way to access this beautiful, serene, relaxing, vacation property on the pristine north end of Long Lake. Car parking is available in the village near the Long Lake Marina, we advise you load in at the Long Lake Town Dock. Boat taxi and float plane service is available as an option to access the property.

The property owners will escort you down the lake upon request, but it must be arranged in advance. We ask that large parties have a proper sized boat, because the owners have limited time for check in.

Of note: There is no electricity on the property. All lighting is propane. We'll teach you how to turn them on so you feel comfortable. Think camping with comfort! We promise you'll love it!

The property boasts sprawling decks and a screened in porch with dining area. Docking for two boats and a private beach. Great for young children to learn how to swim, and fish. Gorgeous sunsets.

There is no electricity on the property, but modern amenities are available including an operating refrigerator, hot water, gas stove and propane lighting, 1 and 1/2 baths

Newly constructed in 2002, the property is an angler's delight with uncrowded, quiet fishing spots galore. Outdoor enthusiasts can take advantage of day trips to Shattuck's Clearing, Turtle Beach, Raquette River, Kemshall Mountain just moments away by boat. It's modern day camping with all the amenities.

Watch and listen for loons and owls, spot majestic bald eagles in their natural habitat and other boreal birds in this IBA. Important Bird Area designated by the Audubon Society.

Renters are reminded that we are in the Adirondacks, surrounded by mother nature. Be prepared as any good camper would be. Use caution, common sense and be aware of your surroundings. Sometimes it take a few days to get a plumber, but rest assured, this property is unique and worth some minor inconveniences. Bring flashlights. Keep garbage covered and indoors. A dumpster for recycling and garbage is available at the Long Lake Town Dock.

Price is firm.

Located on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail and the Raquette River Corridor and short distance to access Northville-Lake Placid Hiking Trail.

This is a What you see is What you get property rental. All renters are required and responsible for cleaning the cabin. It is a camp in the woods, there will be a level of dust, and bugs if you don't keep up with it daily. Be aware an Adirondack Camp experience is not for everyone. If you have children with allergies or expect a Four Seasons hotel, this is not the place for you. We do not provide maid service. You must provide all linens, towels and mattress pads. Linen rentals are available upon request.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1959

About the owner: This property has been in our family for many generations and our available property was built in 2002. We call it Camp Ava because it's Abbie, Vickie and Alex. Camp is home away from home and we want you to love it as much as we do. Countless summer memories on the paddle boat, climbing a mountain, skipping rocks, climbing the rocks along the shore line, napping in the hammock, playing games and singing by the campfire at night.

Why the Owner Chose Long Lake:
We've summered on this property for generations. The peaceful sunsets, the call of the loon, the escape from urban living. We learned to swim and fish and cook out and make smores at the campfire.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
It's quiet and you can't see your neighbors. No crowd here. If you are truly looking for a getaway, this is the place. But hey, maybe you love to waterski. Plenty of room to go tubing, waterskiing and enjoy all the benefits of water recreation. Bring your toys, you'll be out on the water all day long!
