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, in private vacation enclave (historic resort property) 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-Adirondack Experience and 25 minutes from the spectacular Wild Center and Wild Walk at Tupper Lake.

Why Richard Dechene chose Long Lake

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.

Relaxing retreat with lots to do nearby

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great and loved being able to wake up to a beautiful view of Long Lake. Really enjoyed the short walk down to the hill to the beach and dock which was great on the hot days. We were also able to check out the Adirondack Museum which was a short drive away and kept us entertained during a cloudy patch. Can't recommend enough for a small family especially with a kid who loves to swim.

Wonderful Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We loved the screened porch. The cabin is very comfortable and nicely furnished. I liked the outdoor shower option, which is in addition to a full bath inside. The bed was very comfortable and the gas stove was useful in the mornings when it was a little chilly.

Great location for exploring the Adirondacks. We visited the Wild Center in Tupper Lake. Also, I visited the state campground at Lake Eaton, which is spring-fed, to rent a kayak and paddle on the lake. We were so glad that there were few speed boats and jet skis on Long Lake. It was so peaceful. I recommend taking the plane ride available near the town beach. We highly recommend this “Home Away!”

Adirondack Dream

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was nestled in a tranquil setting offering peace and relaxation.

The cabin style and decor is rustic-modern. It is clean, comfortable

with great modern amenities.

Loved being directly on the water with the use of a clean sandy beach and a dock to kayak from.

A Slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at The Honeymoon! We celebrated our anniversary at this charming cottage, taking advantage of many local attractions. We visited Buttermilk Falls, climbed Coney Mountain, visited the Wild Center and Lake Placid. We enjoyed dinner at the Adirondack Hotel, which was a delight. The cottage has all the conveniences, the bed so very comfortable, and the screened porch was fabulous when the bugs came out. I regret it was not warm enough to use the outdoor cute! Richard was gracious and informative, greeting us upon our arrival. The real star here is the setting and the gorgeous views of Long Lake and the mountains! Long Lake is especially beautiful at sunrise and sunset, and the night sky, with unobstructed views from the dock, provided a dazzling display for us, complete with shooting star!! The serenity and solitude allowed the birdsong and whistling wind to be the soundtrack of our stay. Thank you Richard and Hillarie for sharing your slice of heaven with us! It was special to experience the magic that is Deerland once again. We hope to return soon! Terri and Jim

A wonderful getaway

  • 4 of 5

We came for a long restful fall weekend and that is what we got. Very peaceful, comfy place to stay. Our favorites are the screened in porch and to have morning coffee at the kitchen nook which was complete with a beautiful view. The thermostaticasly controlled gas fired stove was so perfect for this fall weather. Agree with many of the other comments.
