20+ years with Bucci Family

  • 5 of 5

My family has been coming up to the Adirondacks for the last 29 years and 20+ of them have been spent at the Bucci's properties. From Wilderness Cove to now Sunset Cove, the attention to detail this family puts into their home is incredible. The property is a great fit for large families as there is plenty of space for everyone to hangout and an especially large kitchen table (we fit 15 people around it!) I love the screened in porch and the back deck so you have plenty of space to relax. They have canoes, kayaks and a dock for swimming. It's a great home base for exploring both Inlet and Old Forge - by boat or by car. Our family will definitely be coming back next year!

Owner's Response: We strive to make our property the perfect place for a family vacation. Our families who have been with us for years receive additional consideration such as canoe and kayaks. While our maximum occupancy is 8 persons, we enjoy having our guests share the property for day use with other family members who have rented nearby camps.

Perfect family vacation. N &

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Old Forge for the past 29 years, and plan to spend many more. Sunset Cove is the perfect vacation spot. We would highly recommend it to anyone.

Perfect Snowmobile Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect house for snowmobilers. It is conveniently located on 4th Lake right across from Daikers. We have had many good memories from years of snowmobiling here. Anyone with a larger family this is the place for you. The owners keep it very nice and are very accommodating. We miss it and hope to be back in the future.

Owner's Response: The Werner family has been the consummate guest for a number of winter seasons. Anyone looking for a peaceful stay in Old Forge with good access to the lake and trails should consider their lead. We look forward to being able to offer you the same comfort and convenience.

Relax and Enjoy

  • 5 of 5

This home offers beauty, comfort, quiet and is a wonderful get away. It is spacious and clean with all the conveniences of home. The magnificent solitude and sunsets cannot be over exaggerated. Nature surrounds and a warm campfire overlooking the cove in the evening is the perfect end to any day spent here. The owners are teriffic hosts and most accomodating.
