Guestbook comments from the owner

When we were looking for a place to rent, we wanted something on a lakefront and it had to be pet friendly. CJ House met all our expectations and more. It has all the amenities of home but still retains the rustic charm of a camp. I grew up in the northern Adirondacks and it truly feels like going home!

Recommended for: Age 55+, Pet-friendly, Families with Teenagers, Families with Young Children

My Response

This family like many others have returned for many seasons and "REALLY Enjoy Paradox Lake".We hope you and your family upon reading this and the many reviews of our homes would think about one of our three waterfront homes for this season or next. Your dog[s] would like the lake too. John & Carol ....................Your Waterfront Home awaits

Another Great Vacation at the CJ House!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the CJ House for 5 years now and every year when we arrive it feels like we have "come home". This house is very comfortable; 3 bedrooms on 2nd floor are large and open living area on 1st floor (living room, dining room and kitchen) is spacious. My family looks forward to coming to the CJ house each year for swimming, fishing and just relaxing.

Not what I expeted

  • 3 of 5

The CJ house was spacious and clean, and in a lovely peaceful setting. The owner provided excellent service for the property. However, I was very disappointed with the swimming area which was rocky and filled with seaweed. There was no ladder to get you in and out of the water, and it was not suitable for small children who could not jump off the dock and into the water. It would also have been helpful to have internet service, which was somewhat deceptive in the listing.

  • Submitted: Sep 3, 2015
  • Stayed: August 2015

Owner's Response: 1. we have wood steps from the deck into the water but this spring will add steps to the dock. 2.Please see photo's of our HOME FROM THE WATER we have steps from the deck into the water...visit our website. 3. We tell everyone bring a sky card (a portable mini wifi hot spot for your lap top WiFi) we have I phones and have VERIZON Service ......Other than AT&T or Verizon may have intermitten service 4.Plus Paradox Lake has a NYS Campsite with a 1,000 ft sandy beach available to all but NO LIFE GUARDS Sea weed --not to my knowledge
