Love to hike with my dog and friends

Lyn Ory purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Lyn Ory chose Chestertown

I love the Adirondacks. For years rented and visited friends in the Schroon Lake area. Decided it was time to have a place of my own to share with family and friends and let renters enjoy it as well.

What makes this cabin unique

Everyone is friendly at the beach and tennis courts. The sculpted bear on the staircase appealed to me. The screened-in porch is surrounded by forest and is very peaceful. The living room with the stone fireplace is quite cozy. The den has a round oak table for bridge or card playing with corner windows which lets the outside in.

Shaby and Dirty

  • 1 of 5

The pictures over rated the property. The parking was a couple hundred yards away from the condo. Even when you unloaded it was way around back. Then you had to park and walk back. The condo was dark,and dingy, It wasn't very clean. There was old food in the fridge and it was dirty and smelled. We had to clean it before we put our food in it. The entire back deck was covered with bird droppings. The rugs were filthy.

To get to the lake it was a major trek down a hill after a long walk or drive down which was quite a distance. The pictures surely made it appear different. The laundry room smelled like a dog. It appears that a large dog had lived there. That wasn't declared in the website.

So overall, it was rather a inconvenient to use the condo. That might have been okay had it been clean and well maintained.It was overpriced for what you get.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Cute cabin, comfortable and peaceful. We were 4 adults with 2 kids. There was plenty of room for everyone. Close to Gore mountain. Took us only 15 minutes. We may return in the summer or again this winter.

We had 5 days to experience the property, all it had to offer as well as the surrounding area. it was a girl's weekend for the perspective bride and our experience was all she expected and more. Absolutely beautiful and I plan on returning, perhaps several times a year. Loved it!

a perfect relaxation spot tucked in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Our annual get-together with my brother and sister-in-law took place at this beautiful and spacious two bedroom log condo in the woods. We had a great time, relaxing in the comfy screen porch, wandering the property, boating on the lake on the property and whipping up fun meals in the well-equipped kitchen. Although it is part of a larger complex of units, it doesn't feel it. The reservation process was a piece of cake and the pre-visit instructions were very helpful. The unit had everything that was needed although having to bring our own sheets and towels was a little unusual. It was clean and well maintained although a bit dated. The numerous wood-carvings were fun and added a nice touch.

We went to Sticks and Stones in Warrensburg (?) for dinner which was very good and clearly a local hot spot. A little closer to the condo, we went into Chesterton for an ice cream nightcap in a throwback to another era.

If you're looking for a place to enjoy fresh air, peace and quiet, definitely consider this lovely place.

[One nit - the light outside the front door was out or not working which made for a bit of a challenge when we returned in the dark.]
