You will feel the tension leave your body as soon as you walk in the door of this lovely 1,650 square foot 4 bedroom/ 2 full-bath ‘camp.’ This is not just a rental property, it is our second home that we just happen to rent once in a while....so it is well cared for with nice amenities.
There is a wall of windows facing the lake; a beautiful newly remodeled kitchen open to the eating and living space with a gas fireplace. A large deck is furnished with Adirondack chairs, large picnic table (seats 8 comfortably) and a large gas grill. From the deck, you traverse a level yard past a stone fire pit for those evening marshmallow roasts to the lake complete with wooden stairs to allow easy entry to the water into the water. For boaters, swimmers, sunbathers and party lovers there is a large dock that can accommodate a 20' boat. Of course, the dock is furnished with additional Adirondack chairs for awesome lakeside leisure. Also included in this beautiful property is a swim platform, two kayaks with paddles and life jackets, lots of wildlife and stunning sunrises.
Picture yourself relaxing on the dock, sitting by the fire with your favorite beverage while your loved ones are swimming, kayaking watching the loons and duck families. The evening skies reveal more stars than you have ever imagined. If your timing is right, the rising moon reflects across the lake directly into the living room. Plenty of parking and easily accessible, our camp on 4th Lake is a perfect vacation getaway!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: Mark and Kathy absolutely love the Adirondack Mountains and Lakes. Residents of Rochester, NY they are close enough to frequent the mountains regularly. They have young children and two black labs that share their passion for ADK. This vacation home is their special place for unforgettable memories that will last forever.
Why the Owner Chose Old Forge, NY, USA:
We chose this home after spending many years renting in the Adirondack Mountains. We love being tucked into a little cove next to the lighthouse, so we can watch the boats go by - but they don't come close to the house. The 1/2 mile long and winding road from Rt 28 to camp engulfs you in quiet, green and peaceful serenity - the perfect mood for a vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The layout of this camp is ideal for lake views…with abundant windows to view the beautiful lake from the kitchen, living room and master bedroom. While the floor plan is open and spacious, it’s practical too. We added a glass partition between the dinette area and living room to keep the view open but the sound between the rooms separate. This allows for games and cards to be played at the dinette table without disturbing others who wish to watch movies or read in the living room. Like technology, TV and tunes? Our high speed Wi-Fi will allow you to be as connected to the world as you want to be. Additionally, you will love our 48-inch Sony “Smart TV” that allows you to access common subscription services like Netflix (just login with your credentials). And for some relaxing or fun music be sure to link your iPhone or Android phone to our awesome wireless Sonos Play 5 speaker system. And the lot is great too! It’s ¾ of an acre, mostly flat with a grassy front yard and over 100 feet of sandy beachfront. Add the fire pit, stable dock, swim platform and views of Alger Island and you will be in love. Sure, our camp has some great amenities but even more importantly, it has a lot of positive energy and great memories.
