About the Property

One of the best homes and views on northern lake george,

Kenikee represents a modern replication of the typical 'Adirondack camp' on Lake George of 100 years ago with all of the modern conveniences of this era. Set on the shore of Lake George among pine, hemlock, cedar and birch with a spectacular view of the lake, Rogers' Rock and the Adirondack Mountains behind, this is the perfect site to soak-up the wonderful days and evening sunsets that the region is known for. The renter has the option of renting 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, or 5 bedrooms and 3 baths (this option adds $500 to the total rental fee.) A spacious kitchen with all that one needs, a large dining room 'porch' and activity room with wrap around windows; a 29' X 13' living room with sitting deck to enjoy the views, sights and sounds of the lake. The dock is perfect spot to enjoy the crystal clear lake, swimming along side, the bottom slopes from about 6 in to 3 feet at the end of the dock. Mooring a boat up to 21 ft. A large picnic table, gas grill and fire pit make the shore area perfect for family activities.


Not far are Fort Ticonderoga and Gardens;, panoramic views of the Champlain Valley and Vermont from Mount Defiance; The Ticonderoga Country Club, a beautiful and challenging fee-based golf club with Emeralds Restaurant; Snug Harbor Marina for boat rentals. Cross Lake Champlain on the Ti Ferry and explore Vermont and Middlebury, VT. About 45 minutes to the Maritime Museum with boat cruises, 60 minutes to Shelburne Farms and Inn, and the nearby world renown Shelburne Museum, 70 minutes to Burlington and shopping. The University of Vermont and the Burlington International Airport are here. 90 minutes to Stowe, Vermont. In New York we are about 90 minutes from Keene Valley and Lake Placid.

Stay at Kenikee and enjoy one of the several clearest and cleanest lakes in the continental United States. Perfect for kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming and all water sports. Grill up some burgers for lunch or barbecue steaks for dinner. If you don't want to cook call into Ti Pi and they will deliver your Pizza to your door.

For hikers the Land Conservancy has nice trails to the top of Cooks Mountain and Rogers Slide nearby. White water rafting with guides is available near Warrensburg on the upper Hudson. All day class III-V rapids, wild and fun.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1949

About: Our family has been vacationing on Black Point Road for over 80 years, building first in the 50s, and replacing the original cottage in 1999, 50 years later for an expanding family, with a modern home but replicating much of the charm of an 'Adirondack Camp' of times gone by. Nestled in the pine/hemlock/birch with spectacular views, it is enjoyed now by the 4th generation. We would like you too, to enjoy this unique spot.

Why Putnam Station, NY, USA:
4 bedrooms and 2 baths (or as an option 5 bedrooms and 3 baths, contact owner for pricing as well as a linen option) give the renter a great deal of space and flexibility for their family or group. There are two living areas adjacent to one another (LR & DR) with an eight foot insulated glass slider, should some wish to have quiet time in the living room and board games or TV in the dining room yet maintaining a very open feeling throughout the cottage. Natural light floods the space. The kitchen is very well equipped for cooking for a big group and there is plenty of eating space. The kitchen has a nice flow into either the dining room or living room. Option 1 (4 BR/2B) offers about 2400 sq ft on 2 floors and Option 2 (5 BR/3B) about 2750 sq ft on 3 floors. Air conditioning is available for the main floor and upper floor bedrooms. (The additional charge would need to be discussed with the owners.) The main floor entrance requires only two steps from your car, for groceries and luggage.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The front deck offers a nice place for morning coffee with the newspaper or a book. Adirondack chairs, picnic table, gas grill and firepit close to the lake keep everyone close by for many laughs and great pictures. Snug Harbor Marina a provider of many types of motor craft is 4 miles up the road toward Ti. Two Kayaks are provided for renters use
