About Roberta McColl

Our Indian Lake camping/fishing/hiking family purchased Indian Ridge Chalet, an all-year-round vacation house because we wanted to be able to go up for "white water" rafting in the spring, cross-country (Garnet Hill), downhill (Gore Mountain), snow-mobiling and spectacular fall foliage This area has something to do every season, pristine lakes everywhere, a Town skating rink up the hill, boating and biking plus the world acclaimed Adirondack Museum (regional museum) in a part of our town called Blue Mountain Lake (part of Indian Lake) .

Roberta McColl purchased this chalet in 1987

Why Roberta McColl chose Adirondack Mountains

It is user friendly, especially for extended families as it can accommodate 10 adults plus a few kids!? It is well equipped and furnished without being slick and fussy. Had a Connecticut sculptor do an "Adirondack Wildlife Totem Pole" from a troubled spruce tree stump about 14 feet tall at entry-way. A wild meadow garden is part of the entry path. The property is on one of the Designated Views in the Park, It is private, yet easy access to Town. The picnic area has a small "farm" pond for the wildlife with an authentic Adirondack lean-to, picnic table, and fire-pit with wood provided.

What makes this chalet unique

The mountain views from the Chalet are quite exceptional. (The Bullhead Mountain Range and Siamese Pond Wilderness area) Central location in the ADIRONDACK PARK. ( The largest public park in the USA). We are about 40 minutes from Lake George (lots to do and see there) and about 1.5 hour drive to the Lake Placid area . Local lakes are Indian Lake (canoe and boat rentals and super camping areas), Lewey Lake, Adirondack Lake, and Lake Abanakee.

Wonderful Home, beautiful area.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a great location to explore central Adirondacks. Close to several lakes and great hiking.

Lean-to and picnic area was a great place to hang out and relax. The house was clean and spacious with a wonderful view of the mountains.

I visit the Adirondacks several times a year. This was my favorite place to stay, and area to explore.

Excellent for an Adirondack getaway

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed here while hiking in the Adirondacks. The chalet itself is beautiful with large windows overlooking the mountains and a deck that walks out from the first floor. It included all the amenities we needed during our stay; we only had to bring our own bed linens as we were instructed by the owner. There is no cell service, which makes it a nice getaway from work (there is service up the road a quarter mile at the scenic overlook).

Down the hill from the chalet there is a lean-to next to a fire pit and picnic table making it a good area to have a cook out.

Overall, I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Chalet and Owner

  • 5 of 5

My brother and I stayed in this Chalet in June of 2017. We loved it. It's spacious with lots of windows, spectacular views, and three floors: a cool basement with 2 bedrooms, main floor living space, and a loft bedroom with 2 twins and a futon. It's close to town, right off Rt 30.

There is a fire pit and a lean to down the hill. The only thing missing might be a ceiling fan.

I think I saw a dehumidifier in the basement which probably should be on when you are there.

Roberta, the owner, is charming and accommodating. I plan on staying again for sure!

Comfortable, great view

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay! The chalet was set back from the road with a tremendous view. We enjoyed the fire pit and lean to in the back. Plenty of sleeping area. Absolutely no cell coverage at the chalet which was a great way to escape. You can get full LTE service in the town of Indian lake.

Owner's Response: FYI: There is LTE service at the Scenic Overlook just up the hill toward town. Ironically, the Verizon tower is up there also up Tower Hill Rd. on the left. So much for current technology..forgot about mountains...??? Indian Ridge Chalet, technical trouble shooter, Roberta McColl PS Thanks for the kind revue, much appreciated, please come again!
