Come enjoy the serenity of the Adirondacks in this quaint waterfront cabin. Loon Lake Landing is located 20 miles north of Saranac Lake and 28 miles to LakePlacid/Whiteface Mountain in Franklin County NY . Loon Lake Landing has three bedrooms and one bath and is located on 2.5 acres. The beautiful waterfront area and private dock provide unobstructed access to Loon Lake . 'The Landing' is one of only a few properties on Loon Lake that has a large beach area. There is a large shallow and sandy area which is perfect for swimming access and launching the boats. The views at Loon Lake Landing go on for miles. Whiteface Mountain and other 'High Peaks,' are just a peek out the door or window! While we offer many of the modern conveniences to which, we have all become accustomed, we hope you choose to instead take advantage of the many awesome (and FREE) activities right outside the doors of the camp. Loon Lake Landing offers a Horseshoe pit, board games, books and DVD's, in addition to many other activities. There is a Samsung HD TV, Direct TV, wireless Internet Access (computer not included.) There is a 2-person canoe, a row boat and a tandem kayak for paddling around Loon Lake. There is a dock for swimming and fishing. Go fishing on Loon Lake for Large Mouth bass, Small Mouth and Northern Pike! There are also places to fish for trout within 10 minutes of the camp. There are thousands of acres of state land a stone's throw away and you can hike up Crusher Mountain in about 45 minutes from the front door. Of course, sometimes nothing beats just sittin' back, breathing the clean clear Adirondack air...just being...while the haunting call of the loon echoes around you. The fire pit by the lake is equipped with Adirondack chairs. Closer to the cabin, is a patio with a big old stone chimney for campfires. Loon Lake is a private lake, so there is not a lot of boat traffic. There is telephone with free long distance.

Peace & Tranquility - Cozy & Clean
Our week at Loon Lake Landing was the most peaceful place we’ve vacationed in a very long while! Each morning, afternoon, and evening, we were lulled into soothing serenity by the quiet sounds of nature: birds singing, loons wailing, leaves blowing, water rippling, bullfrogs croaking, and woodpeckers knocking! Ahhh.
The cabin, too, is a sanctuary of peace and comfort! Perched atop a hill overlooking Loon Lake, this enjoyable rustic retreat offers perhaps the absolute best location on the lake to view the majestic Whiteface Mountain, as well as McKenzie Mountain, in the backdrop!
We are grateful to Dave and Veronica for sharing their very cozy, comfortable, and clean cabin with us as well as the canoe and kayak! Each day we took the canoe—with our canine companion—to explore all nooks and crannies of lovely Loon Lake, including a picnic lunch one afternoon on a peninsula! We look forward to returning!
Awesome Experience!! Highly Recommended
My husband and I and our dog had a GREAT week at the cabin!
The cabin itself is immaculate and very well maintained. The photos depicted here represent the cabin and grounds very well in reality and was very much what we expected when we arrived; no disappointment!
We did not leave the property all week and found plenty to keep us busy; hiking, boating, sun-bathing, grilling, making fires in the chimney, making smores, stargazing, and just relaxing and unplugging from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The fleet of boats was our favorite feature. Hubby and I spent HOURS on the paddleboat tooling around the lake. The lake itself is very clean and suitable for swimming. At night, we watched for shooting stars which were AMAZING!
I especially liked the well-stocked library of books that was available on the one rainy day we had; also had fun writing in the guest book :)
Again, this property and home-owner come highly recommended by my family. Thanks, Dave & Veronica for sharing your home with us, especially our dog. We appreciate it and will recommend Loon Lake Landing to all of our friends.
Loon Lake Landing Review: DeVarney
Nice property with puzzles, books, DVDs, views and activities to keep you busy. Did not have an opportunity to use the paddle boat due to the weather. Might as well leave your blackberry at home during your vacation since you're far away from any local coverage. Beautiful sun room to look out at the lake or to work a puzzle.
Most water systems in this area have a natural high iron content. Didn't bother our taste palettes but the owners were thoughtful enough to have bottled water available for those who may be a little fussier.
David was very responsive to a phone call regarding how to get the water pump to kick on. David and Veronica had informed us when we arrived but during all the hustle and bustle of moving luggage...we forgot.
My wife and I stayed here in September, we have a cockapoo. This is the main reason we choose this place. The photos are a little deceiving. You have to cross a road to get to the water. The grilles were quite dirty, we opted not to use either one. Micky and his friends came out at night to visit us, they drove the dog crazy. The water pressure in the shower was almost inperceivable. On the plus side the cabin did have one of the most comfortable beds we have found in a rental. The gas heater warmed the cabin quickly on the chilly September mornings. I didn't catch one fish or even get one bite in the lake, though it was late in the season. If you are looking for a private get away this might be what you are looking for. But I don't think we will be returning.
I am sorry about the issues you had during your stay and would like to address each one. I would like to invite you and your family back at a discounted rate (as many other families have done in our short time owning + renting the cabin.) I am sorry you feel that the photo's are deceiving. I have had guests tell me the place is exactly as they imagined it. To be fair, the road is a very seldom traveled private road which dead ends 2 miles down the street. I actually recommend going to the end of the road because there is an old bridge there. You can go across and it's a great place to walk around. We purchased a new Charcoal grill. We installed a new water pump and the pressure is fantastic. Sorry you didn't catch any fish but you know what they say, that's why it's called "Fishing" and not "Catching." There are some big fish in there and the lake is rarely fished. Again, we are sorry your stay was not the best, we made improvements based on your feedback and we hope you will reconsider and come back for a future vacation. Thanks! Dave and Veronica
We chose this location to accommodate our older parents and it met all of our expectations. Easy access (1-2 steps at a time) with first floor bedroom and bath and a somewhat level yard.
Cabin is in good repair and the upgrades were nice. Plenty of room to spread out, nice view of the lake from the closed in porch, well equipped cabin and clean (did I mention CLEAN!) Boats and equipment were very nice.
We saw plenty of wildlife. Every day we saw up to four loons. They were shy, but stayed in the lake as we were boating. Nice dirt road to walk through the woods.
We already have made reservations for next year.
We are so glad you had a good time in 2010 and that you're coming back in 2011! We appreciate the great review and all the nice comments. We are glad you got to enjoy the loons, they are really facinating bird and it's quite a thrill to see them up close. Loons are very territorial so it is best to not disturb them and I've read that mimicking their calls might make them leave. There is literature about loons in the reading collection.
We are doing many upgrades again this year including adding a 55" Samsung HD TV, Direct TV and Wireless internet (computer not provided at this time but maybe something we will add in the future.) We are even more excited about our new and improved view and path from the stone chimney down to the lake. Check our websites periodically for more upgrades and new pictures.
Have a Happy Holiday season! We'll see you in 2011.

PERFECTION at Loon Lake Landing
My bride and I have been married for 25 yrs. Our anniversary 8/24 was going to be a full moon this year. The absolute perfect spot, cleaar sky, cool night, NO BUGS, and a full moon. We are so very impressed with the home, the grounds, the lake. A very refreshing respite from the work world. You couldn't ask for a more serene and calm setting. The fox; we saw twice, turkeys everywhere, hummingbirds that empty the feeders everyday!
We brought our two Samoyeds, and they had a blast. The fireplace on the hill is awesome! We had a fire on 5 out of 7 nights.
Now, I want to ice-fish up there this year. We will be back!
To Dave and Veronica for the efforts that they put into making this a truly special vacation, THANK YOU! It was just like being home, the comfort level, the upgrades to the facility, the relaxed atmosphere; PERFECT.

Hi Rick and Leslie,
Thank you for taking the time to write such a great review! We really appreciate the kind words and we're happy you had a nice stay. We may be able to work out a long weekend for ice fishing this winter. I talked with someone who grew up in the area and he only fishes the lake in the winter. There are some big Northern Pike in the lake. The fireplace on the hill just got better! We cleared the many small trees which were semi-blocking the view and cleared a path from the chimney to the lake, we will post some pictures soon. We put a lot of effort into Loon Lake Landing in the short time we have owned it and we are constantly improving the cabin, grounds, amenities and our service as we learn from our guests. We have had two very successful years so far and look forward to many more. There are some very exciting upgrades we are planning on and will post them as soon as we make them, like the new and improved view which went from amazing to something even better than amazing! Thanks again Rick and Leslie for writing such a nice review. We sent you information about your discount for returning next year so let us know which week you would like to reserve. Our calendar will fill in quickly so don't delay. We look forward to seeing you next summer or maybe sooner for some ice fishing.
