What makes this chalet unique

Haus Cronov is bright, cozy, comfortable, well stocked and provides a wonderful home-away-from-home atmosphere. It is set up so that everyone enjoys privacy yet also togetherness since all rooms are spacious and comfortable. The gas fireplace turns on at a flick of a switch, the atmosphere created underscores the cozy, bright friendliness of Haus Cronov.

The yard is huge, with a flat grassy area approx. 1 acre large, swing,firepit and forest area so that all outdoor summer and winter wishes can be fulfilled. In the forest the kids can play on huge ice-age rock. A small hill creates a great sledding area in winter.

A Lovely Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Haus Cronov. It was clean, had a well-stocked kitchen for cooking, and was overall very comfortable. Lilt was very helpful upon our arrival and we never needed anything, because the house had it all. We had five teenagers with us, and they really enjoyed the loft space. We went into the local town for dinner. It's also a short drive to the Stone Bridges park, which I have been to before and is a nice hike.

Although it was unseasonably warm, we were still able to ski at Gore, which was a very short drive from the house. We would definitely consider it for future vacations.

Haus Cronov is a treasure!!! My husband and I enjoyed our first summertime stay in the Adirondacks very much with our two adult children who also thoroughly enjoyed their stay on Loon Lake!! The chalet is spacious, well-equipped and maintained. All the windows and views are grand!!! Haus Cronov is located in a beautiful community with two private beaches on a very clean sandy-bottomed lake. We loved being surrounded by the aroma of pine wherever we went, especially in our very favorite spot, the PORCH!!! Loon Lake is very centrally located!! Chestertown is very nearby with a good supermarket, restaurants, and an excellent Farmers Market on Wednesdays. The quaint Main St. Ice Cream Parlor is absolutely top notch!!! We also recommend the Silver Star Restaurant and Fredricks Restaurant, both on Route 8 in Chestertown. Bolton"s Landing and the famous Sagamore Hotel is only 20 minutes away! History buffs may want to travel 45 minutes to Fort Ticonderoga for a very pleasant day! Lilt was very helpful and the rental process was very smooth from beginning to end. We definitely hope to return again soon.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautiful cabin for 1 week during the summer...3 adults and 3 kids. We had plenty of room! It was very comfortable and was stocked well with just about anything you will need (including most condiments and spices and great games!). Very short walk to 2 beautiful beaches with pristine cool water. The owners and Lilt were a pleasure to work with. Would definitely recommend this cabin to others! Great price for a great place!

My family and I spent a week at this chalet. It is just as described, well stocked with everything you need and walking distance to the lovely private beach. The neighbors are very friendly, including the care taker of the house. The house has a screened in porch which is important for that area as many bugs at night. My 3 and 5 year old boys loved the house and the beach and it's also pretty close to Lake George Town (20 mins drive). The owners are not living in the area but extremely responsive and the caretaker is across the road from the house.

We stayed here over a summer weekend with friends, and it was great! We loved the beautiful home- the porch was great for dinnertime and for nighttime hangout time. The kitchen was well-stocked, as were all the necessities. Supermarket was a short drive away, making it easy to cook in. We made sure to use the tree swing and the fire pit for s'mores :) The beach was so private and relaxing- we were the only ones there for a big part of the day! The caretaker was very helpful with all questions that we had and made the process very smooth. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
