Click on the 17 minute video on the upper left hand corner of the above picture & detailed pics show much more on the rooms! BUNK HOUSE IS ALWAYS INCLUDED WITH MAIN CABIN RENTAL AND THE ENTIRE PROPERTY IS YOURS TO ENJOY!
From the gorgeous back deck you have great views of the water. The waterfront has a gentle slope down to an aluminum dock (canoe, 10HP motorized row boat, paddle board and 1-2 kayaks provided). You must have a valid drivers license and ONLY authorized renters can operate motorized boat (life jackets, whistle, paddle and anchor included)! The back deck has an outdoor entertainment area with gazebo, gas grill, hot tub, fireplace and seating area. The Boating/jet skiing and fishing are excellent. This 60 year old cottage was totally remodeled with beautiful tongue and groove knotty pine throughout. The quaint finish comes nicely w/comfortable furnishings and décor. Low 7-foot ceilings & architraves add to a comfortable feel and warmth to the quaint cabin while maximizing the view of the Adirondacks. There are countless places to visit nearby which are perfect for hiking, biking, rafting, antiquing, outdoor sporting, sightseeing, just a short drive to Lake Placid or the St. Lawrence River. Montreal Quebec is only 2.5 hrs away for those with a valid passport and a sense for international fun.
This cottage is nestled in a quiet and serene wooded setting, directly on the shore of Trout Lake. Its high elevation provides a wonderful view of the quiet lake. The lots on this lake have approximately 80-100 feet of water frontage w/ dock for boat and/or jet ski and there are cottages on both sides of this +/-80' x 150' lot. In addition, the County Road 19 at the rear has homes along the highway. This waterfront community has respectful & helpful neighbors who will allow you to enjoy your rental. The area is extremely remote and the nearest traffic light is a 30 min drive away. This mountain lake is a typical setting and you will see neighboring cottages enjoying the waterfront and their decks.
The lake water is clean & clear with awesome visibility! You can swim off the dock, paddle out in floats, jump off the boat and beyond. You may also wade in from the shoreline but i emphasize that there is muck/sediment on the bottom in the area of the waterfront!!! Most prefer to swim off the dock and not walk on the muck the bottom as to wade in. There are sandy and quiet State beaches to paddle to and enjoy.
Note THERE ARE TWO TROUT LAKES SO DO NOT CONFUSE THE TWO AND REFERENCE A MAP (Please re-read the statement as I field several questions on location)!!! This is the Awesome 'Trout Lake' approx 45 mins north of Watertown, NY in St. Lawrence County and NOT the lessor Trout Lake in Warren County (closer to Lake George & Albany, NY). If there are ANY questions, see the map on VRBO. Enter address: 694 County Route 19, Hermon, NY 13652 in any map program or GPS. Lake George is 140 miles southward on mountain roads for general reference. Our guests have easy access to all the Thousand Islands Region has to offer! Walk out of your door and the possibilities are endless. Whether it’s fishing the area lakes and ponds, diving the crystal clear waters, paddling kayaks through scenic preserves, hiking trails leading to multiple water falls, or picnicking in the Adirondack Park, our waterfront location makes it all possible (http://visitadirondacks.com/recreation). If you want to take a break from the outdoor adventures, try exploring the two nearby historic castles in Alexandria Bay, the renowned Antique Boat Museum, local wineries on the Thousand Islands Seaway Wine Trail, Visit nearby colleges such as SUNY Potsdam State, Clarkson University (both in Potsdam, NY), Canton ATC, St. Lawrence University (Canton, NY) for orientation, graduation, spring break or sporting events, or simply relax while taking a scenic dinner cruise among the islands or enjoy a bike or motorcycle drive through the region. Seasonal hunters can also enjoy 6 Million Acres of the Adirondack State Forest that begins within walking distance of the property. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adirondack_Park
Whatever your interests may be our top priority is making your stay memorable. If you are considering multiple properties, I would rather you stay here as opposed to lose your business so give me a chance to be competitive with your best price for an equivalent property. Short notice and short term rentals are welcomed. Please be our guest & enjoy all the region has to offer!

Reed Vacation Rental. The following are some items to familiar yourself with the cottage:
FIRE-PIT & HOT TUB: some of the best time is spent with a hoodie and some bug spray next to the fire pit or in the Hot Tub. Hot Tub is shut down when freezing temperatures approach. It is also a mechanical item and prone to break! We will repair and maintain but note that parts have to be shipped and a standard repair can take a week! Family, friends, S’mores and fine merriment cannot be beat! Keep late night shouting and loud music to a minimum to keep neighbors happy.
WATER FUN: Keep the ski boats slow in the “no wake zone” near shore. This allows you and the neighbors to swim safely. Keep the boat speed for the open and deep water lake! There is a state park with a sandy beach that is directly across the lake and easy to reach via boat/canoe/kayak. There are long hiking trails from the county road to the State Beach but is is best to access via boat. There is also “Rock Island” nearby the state beach. Enjoy jumping off the rocks into the deep water below.
FISHING: There are many area bodies of water for all sorts of fishing. This includes Trout Lake, Cedar Lake, Cranberry Lake, Black Lake, Oswegatchie River, Grasse River, St. Regis RIverPlumb Brook, St. Lawrence River & hundreds of mountain brooks and watersheds. The DEC stocks Trout Lake with a combined 5 to 10 thousand rainbow and lakers. Other stocking in recent years include landlocked salmon and walleye. Trout Lake also has a good number of smallmouth bass. See NYS DEC maps, regulations and predominant fish species at: http://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/31493.html
SCUBA: The lake is deep and clear. It can become extremely cold at 100+ feet depths. The St. Lawrence River has several wrecks from the War of 1812 and recent freightliners. Explore the underwater world! http://www.dec.ny.gov/docs/fish_marine_pdf/troutlkmap.pdf
Hiking: I have attached a map of area hikes in the forest. There are local waterfalls (Lampson Falls, Copper Rock Falls, Rainbow Fall, Twin Falls, etc) are easy hikes. Wolf Lake and the Firefalls is a longer walk and can take a day or several days if you chose. If you travel to the Tooley Pond Rd (Between deGrasse, NY and Cranberry Lake, NY), there are weeks of hiking. Experts attack the 46 great Adirondack High Peaks which takes a long summer and join the 46’er club. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adirondack_High_Peaks OR http://www.everytrail.com/guide/adirondack-46er-list/map
Water Falls: See the maps. there are several local water falls. Be sure to port my kayaks around! Lampson Falls, Copper Rock Falls, Rainbow Fall, Twin Falls, etc) See more at: http://nyfalls.com/waterfalls/map/

Year Purchased: 2014
About: My family has been in the area since the late 1700's and Trout Lake has been a generational family gathering place for summer fun and winter games.
Why Trout Lake:
I grew up on this lake and it is my favorite place to relax. Work, email traffic, cell phone harassment and the everyday barrage of life's overwhelming responsibilities disappear when you hit the waterfront. I exercise more, sleep better and etch lifetime memories for my family on each visit. I have traveled the world on many occasions and i have not found a place that compares. I purchased this place so my children will have a place to enjoy long after I am gone. Im certain they will find the same serenity and use the retreat as life demands!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It it a quaint cottage and that is probably it best feature. You can stay elsewhere at a high end motel with all the expensive services your credit card can pay for OR you and the family can step into the fun of cottage life with 4 million acres of the Adirondack State Park, a wonderful view, entertainment area and waterfront/Hot Tub within steps of your bedroom. Enjoy!
