Why Ron Patterson chose Tupper Lake

This is a private island you will have exclusive use of. It is water access only with a pontoon boat for access to the mainland and use of the lake. The boat slip is located 1.1 miles across the lake and takes about 10 minutes. There is parking across the road from the boat dock for vehicles.

What makes this cabin unique

Watch Island can be your own private adventure vacation with full use of its unique outdoor activities both on the land or water. You can also use it for a secluded private getaway or anything in between. You will find it to be versatile and accommodating.

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you're looking for the ultimate in a relaxing vacation visit Watch Island, Tupper Lake, located in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York. The summer climate is wonderful and the island is basically a private theme park where you can relax and read while enjoying scenic lake views, fish from shore, from a kayak or boat. We fished the coves and reeds and it was great. Lot of sun, perch and large mouth bass ranging from 1 and 1/2 pounds up to 6 and 1/2 pounds. Something was always biting. We enjoyed cruising the lake on the pontoon. There is a 50 foot water slide the kids loved !! The master cabin has a stunning view of the lake and is well equipped with nice kitchen / dining facilities and comfortable den area. The bunk houses are clean and have comfortable beds. Very nice NEW bath house and laundry.

There are lots of activities available nearby off the island (we didn't pursue any because we were just SO RELAXED and HAPPY on the island) and grocery shopping is just minutes away in town. For me Watch Island will be hard to beat !!

We had a wonderful time on Watch Island. It was the perfect get away. Everyone had a great time.

My wife was amazed and wanted you to know that in her opinion you have thought of everything. From plenty of towels to the wonderful blueberry plates and bowls.

Thanks for everything and we hope to return again.
