Authentic, vintage 1890’s Adirondack cottage, graced with a private yard and hundreds of feet of sandy shoreline and a picturesque setting on pristine Star Lake is yours to enjoy. Classic pine walls, hand-hewn timber railings, antique furnishings, sitting porches, and a wood stove take you back in time to when Grover Cleveland was President and families traveled by train and buggies to vacation together at one of the most special lakes in the Adirondacks.
Picture the Waltons on vacation, sleeping 11 to 13, where every bedroom has a view of the lake and a reading chair where you can enjoy your favorite book or just soak in the tranquility. The kitchen has a pantry and all the amenities. There's a boat house, dockboat w/motor, raft, stone fire pit/fireplace and a wood-fired cedar soaking tub nestled in the privacy of the pines. You can tour the uniquely shaped lake in the 4 kayaks, (2 kids/2 adults), the canoe or the two paddleboards. The quaint town is minutes away and has a beautiful and challenging public golf course, grocery store, restaurant, and hospital. Lifetime memories await you.
Cell phone service is available for all Verizon Customers and all other service is patchy. A hot spot works well for non-Verizon customers.
Star Lake is very unique not only in its shape from whence the name came, but also in that the entire shoreline is sandy. There is even a sandbar within swimming distance from the cottage where the water is shin deep and you can sit in chairs and play games on a table (if you bring them). The village of Star Lake is less than a mile away and has a grocery store, gas station, restaurant. public golf course, post office, antique shop, hardware store, and a hospital.

Twenty minutes away in the Cranberry Lake region is one of the largest remote areas in the state. Just south of the lake are thousands of acres of hills, lakes, ponds, and virgin forests. The new Wild Center Natural History Museum of the Adirondacks in Tupper Lake is just 45 minutes away, and the Adirondack Museum in Blue Mountain Lake is 1.7 hours away.

For the truly adventuresome, some of the best white water rafting in the country is found on the Black River 1 and 1/2 hours to the West. Whatever suits your fancy, you'll find it in the Adirondacks.
