Burkes Cardinal cottage (#3) is nestled under ancient pines and towering maples on 3 acres of perennial gardens and manicured lawns on picturesque Indian Lake in the tiny hamlet of Sabael. Located in the Adirondack Park - one of the last great wilderness areas in the northeast. Indian Lake's shoreline is 90% 'forever wild' with approximately 10% privately held property, providing a pristine wilderness experience. This wonderful Adirondack style 'camp' overlooks Indian Lake and has a fireplace.

There is a short walk to our small sandy beach and boat dock. ALL BOATS MUST BE LAUNCHED FROM THE INDIAN LAKE MARINA. NO BOATS ALLOWED DOWN OUR DRIVEWAY.

This wonderful cottage overlooking Indian Lake has a fireplace in the great room, three bedrooms (a King upstairs with ensuite bath, two twins and a queen with adjoining full bath) full kitchen, dining area, 2 full baths, heat, covered deck, screened porch, & charcoal grill for your enjoyment, as well as a beach, swim float, waterfront observation deck, campfire pit, boat dock and canoes supplied free of charge. We offer free canoes and kayaks on a first come, first served basis.

Bed linens and towels are not supplied. NO PETS ALLOWED.

Thanks for everything. The only problem with our stay was that it was TOO SHORT! We hope to come back again soon.

A little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

It's like being transported to another time, a simpler time, where people take the time to breathe in fresh, clean air, and enjoy the natural beauty all around them. Don't get me wrong, Burke's cottage has every modern convenience you need, from a fully-stocked kitchen, to comfortable furnishings, to games, tv/dvd and books for entertainment, but it's the unmeasurables that make this place SO worth the visit. Unlike many rentals, Mr. Burke does not charge for use of the kayaks and canoes; nor does he charge for his excellent suggestions for hiking and dining in the area he knows so well. You cannot put a price tag on the utter peace and quiet of this place; or on the responsive and friendly service of the owners. It's not easy to find an affordable cottage for a large family, but Burke's cottages delivers all this for a very reasonable price! This is our third summer visiting, and there is no question we will be back again. Thank you for another wonderful vacation!
