Peaceful and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This was a week of peaceful relaxation in one of the prettiest sections of the Adirondacks. Our hosts provided us with all of the amenities in a lovely cottage by Loon Lake. Our Lab Barney was beside himself with joy playing on the sandy beach and splashing through the water. Evenings were spent around an outdoor fire under brilliant stars. We even got to hear and see the loons! There were plenty of day trip excursions within a short distance to keep us entertained. We enjoyed some great meals in Chestertown. Overall, we are grateful to the Behans for providing us with a great end of summer experience. We would be glad to do it again. Thanks.

Best Deal on Loon Lake w/ Room for all!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a week at Behan Cottage for the third year in a row. It took 11 years to find the perfect place where we have lake access and room for everyone. The private beach with dock are across the road is very lovely with plenty of floats and chairs. The fire pit is loved by the kids. The extra bathrooms make multigenerations happy. There are enough beds for all. At night you can hear the loons calling from the lake. There is also a ping pong table in the basement! The screened porch is breezy and the patio has great afternoon sun. Can't say enough about the house! We love it. Thank you, Behans, for sharing it.

Great Family Getaway and beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house. Plenty of seating and comfortable . The bedrooms were a very nice size with full bathrooms on each floor. The screened in porch was a favorite of my grandchildren to play with the toys left for their enjoyment. Books for everyone and family games too. I loved sitting in the adirondack chairs outside and listening to the birds, especially the loons, and watching deer wander around the property. Also the beach across the road was so private and the use of the canoe and kayaks were so nice. Loved this house and would definitely rent it again.
