About the property

One Bedroom Cottage Perched On Lake With Breathtaking Views And Sandy Beach

Cozy wainscot interior with comforts for a couple, or two adults and one child. The cottage has one bedroom with a queen bed, a living room with a queen futon and two leather chairs. There is a breakfast bar and a table that seats four. The kitchen has a gas stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee maker. The location is the highlight, on the shore of Long Lake in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains. Somewhat steep path to the beach. Close to hiking trails and great fishing right off the dock. Only 7 miles from the famous Adirondack Museum and 25 minutes from the spectacular Wild Center and new Wild Walk at Tupper Lake.

Why Richard Dechene chose Adirondack Mountains

The Honeymoon has been helping guest create beautiful memories for over 100 years. It is located on the former Deerland Lodge property, a resort from the turn of the last century. It has been renovated to have modern conveniences with old world charm. An enclosed iron tub provides a perfect spot for a bubble bath after a long hike or day lounging on the dock.

Amazing Fall Color at a Lakefront Cottage.

  • 4 of 5

We had a 4 night stay at Richard's lakeside Honeymoon cottage in late October. Morning views from the cottge's bay window looking at the imtimate Long Lake and its fall foliage across and quiet reflection on the water are just amazing. We checked out the town, the local Buttermilk Fall, did some driving in the area, and hiked the somewhat streneous Blue Mountain Summit Trail (great views of the ADK from the fire tower, the granite trail was slipery going down, but hike was very nice).

Had to leave very early in the morning and my checkout message was inadverdenty sent to a wrong phone number. My apology to Richard.

Paradise on Long Lake

  • 5 of 5

Fall 2016 was our third trip to this specific cabin, Honeymoon on Long Lake. We celebrated our 57th wedding anniversary this year. This spot is perfect: views of beautiful Long Lake, fall color was at its peak, weather was gorgeous, even a drizzle rain for parts of 2 days. The cabin is heated by an electric “wood stove,” so a flick of the switch makes everything warm and wonderfully cheery. The queen sized bed has one of the most comfortable mattresses ever! Bathroom is well appointed. Kitchen has all necessities (so pleased with the coffee mugs; these appeared last spring). We tend to eat a large lunch in a local restaurant and “snack” for the other meal times. Screened porch provides a great place for mid-day-thru-late-afternoon reading spot, along with an early evening glass of wine, or other beverage of your choosing! Quite good nearby restaurants, and the local grocery has everything of necessity and more. We took many day trips around the Adirondacks. Only regret: why didn’t we book for two weeks instead of only one!

Beautiful spot on Long Lake

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay in this cozy cottage. Our main pastime was kayaking, and we found Long Lake and many surrounding lakes perfect for this. Fran and Jack

Second trip as amazing as the first

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year in a row staying at the Honeymoon Cottage. There are four of us (9 & 10 year old kids). We all love it! The water level was lower this year and we were on the beach area a lot. The kids made sand castles and caught frogs. We rented kayaks for the week and explored quite a bit. This cabin has everything you need. It's private but not secluded. The location is perfect. The owners are very nice. There is a lot to do if you want...or you can just spend the day swimming, kayaking, and having a camp fire. I highly recommend this cottage!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was everything I was looking for! My six year old daughter and I stayed there for just under a week. The cabin is well maintained as is the beach area. Richard was a great, down to earth kind of person. He was easy to talk to and was respectful of trying to create that perfect balance between being friendly, while also giving me and my daughter our own space. Some people shy away from staying at cabins where the owners are on site, but this should not be a deterrent for his cabin! They are friendly, courteous and truly respectful of what you came to the Adirondacks for.

The cabin was perfect in every way. It is much bigger than the pictures online make you think. The outdoor shower is well built and designed. It was great to be able to use it to wash the sand off our bodies after a day on the lake. When I read about the outdoor shower online I pictured a shower head coming out of the side of the cabin, with no privacy, but it is an actual stall with a floor and a door.

My favorite part about the cabin was the enclosed front porch. The Adirondack chairs on it are comfortable and situated so you can drink your coffee in the morning and look out over the lake. The morning and late evenings on the porch brought me great solitude. Hearing the loons late at night or early in the morning was a special treat and brought back great memories for me. There is a fire ring and we had a fire almost every night.

The cabin is located on Long Lake so you can do day trips in your own canoe to the Buttermilk Falls carry, the town of Long Lake, or to Big Brook. Coney Mountain has a beautiful view at top and was a great hike for me and my six year old daughter. There is so much to do and appreciate in the area.

I would definitely return again to spend time at this cabin. My experience was excellent and exactly what I was looking for and needed.
