"We just got home from our eighth annual visit to the Loony Bin on Loon Lake. The owners continue to add special touches that make each year so special. The quiet location and the view are the best we've ever found. There are Loons on this lake and we have always been lucky enough to see and hear them. The worst part of staying at the Loony Bin is having to leave!"

"What a wonderful vacation!! This is not our first time renting this vacation home. We rented when our children were 12 or so and it was a great sized pond to keep an eye on them but give them some freedom. They are now young adults and enjoyed the pond just as much. It was a relaxing time away from the "rat race" of normal life and afforded us time to enjoy our family. We would go back in a heart beat."

"What sets Healing Wood apart from other vacation rentals is the attention to detail of the furnishings, décor and setting. The house retains the charm of a bygone era, from the kitchen's cast iron stove to the porcelain wash basins. (There are fully modern appliances, so don't worry about building a fire to heat up the tea kettle!) The well stocked library will keep inquisitive minds occupied for days, all while reading in the warmth of the late afternoon sun streaming through the French doors. It's like walking back in time to your grandparent's home.
The home is located a short walk from Upper Saranac lake and within easy drive of the villages of Tupper, Saranac and Placid. Recommend the boat tour on Placid to see the grand camps, including Kate Smith's camp. The Wild Center is a gem in nearby Tupper and aviation buffs can arrange flights out of Adirondack Regional (KSLK) to see the high peaks from up on higher! Hiking the Ampersand trail to the summit provided a view that was worth every rock and foot of elevation gain along the way.
A memorable vacation in a special home, we hope to return again to Healing Wood."

"My group had an amazing time last week at the Lake Flower Cottage. I think our favorite part was the Fourth of July fireworks show that were done right across the lake from us! My friends and I participated in so many great activities in Lake Saranac which included kayaking on the chain lakes as well Saranac River (awesome!). We also hiked at the new Wild Walk Center about 25 minutes away from the house. A few of us checked out some of the shops and restaurants in town, which was walking distance! We cooked most of our meals as a group which was fun and there were several grocery stores, which made it super convenient when we needed anything. The last night we were there we checked out Blue Line Brewery and had a blast. We would love to come back here again as the house was spacious for a large group (LOVED the outside wrap around porch), the endless amounts of activities, and just good times with good friends! Thank you David for making our stay memorable and being attentive and prompt with our questions!"
