About the Property

Main house and cottage on waterfront - sleeps 12 total or 6 individually

Enjoy your days hiking in the High Peaks, kayaking the various waterways, biking, or site seeing in nearby Saranac Lake (31 mi), Lake Placid (40 mi), Whiteface Mountain (44 mi), St. Lawrence Seaway/Eisenhower Locks (45 mi), or Lake Champlain (51 mi). If you want to venture a bit further, take a day trip to Fort Ticonderoga (100 mi), Lake George (114 mi), Alexandria Bay (106 mi), or Montreal, Quebec Canada (85 mi). When you arrive back at “the nest”, enjoy a lazy evening toasting marshmallows over the fire pit. If you need a day to recoup or just want to enjoy the solitude and restfulness that the Adirondacks offer, curl up on the porch swing with a good book or nap in the hammock. Experience the wild beauty of an untouched land as you kayak the channel between Horseshoe Pond and Deer River Flow. Great Blue Herons, Canadian Geese, many varieties of ducks, red-winged blackbirds, an occasional beaver, and even our resident nutria may cross your path. You may even spot a bald eagle soaring across the sky.


Located in the pristine northern reaches of the Adirondack Mountains, this waterfront house and cottage provide the perfect get away with all the comforts of home. The property is fully equipped and ready for occupancy. All you need to pack are your clothes, food, and the desire to experience the beauty and serenity of the North Country. Both structures have fully equipped kitchens with microwaves, toasters, toaster ovens, coffee grinders and drip coffee makers. Both have satellite television, DVD players, and phones. While internet is not available at this time, the owner intends to have it in place for June 1. Outdoor amenities include gas grills, decks, a screened-in porch on the main house, a fire pit, hammock, picnic table, and Adirondack chairs. Kayaks are available for your use , fishing equipment, bicycles, and lawn games. Several complete sets of golf clubs with pull carts are also ready for use at the nearby Malone Country Club or the Highland Greens Golf Course in East Dickenson (16 miles). A wooden float provides a nice spot for sunning after a refreshing dip as well as great fun for the young and young at heart. Boogie boards and life preservers are also on site and available for use.

The main house features a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, living room with comfortable seating, 3 bedrooms and 2 full baths. It sleeps six comfortably offering a queen bed in the on suite master bedroom, a full size bed in bedroom #1, and a standard futon in bedroom #2. There is a screened in porch with a dinette and sliders to the front porch overlooking the pond with a canopied swing and outdoor furniture.

The cottage is a separate structure on the second floor over the Dutch colonial garage. It also sleeps 6 and features 2 bedrooms, a living/dining area, fully equipped kitchen and a bathroom with shower. Bedroom #1 features a standard size bed and wardrobe. Bedroom #2 features 2 twin beds and a wardrobe. The living area has a standard futon that comfortably sleeps 2. Skylights provide comfortable breezes as well as lots of natural light.

The main house and cottage are available for rent together or separately. The minimum rental period is one week. For families or groups traveling together who want to enjoy one another’s company while also allowing private time, this is the perfect property. It has a large lawn overlooking the pond and an even larger lawn in the front. The property accommodates gatherings for family reunions, picnics, or even weddings.

We are located in the town of Duane on Horseshoe Pond on State Route 30, half way between Malone and Paul Smith’s College. We are 18 miles north of Paul Smith’s Visitor Interpretive Center (VIC), and 16 miles south of Malone where you will find an array of major supermarkets and department stores, pharmacies, gas stations, fast food, banking and medical services.

Give your kids a chance at the kind of summer vacation that your parents gave you or just come to unplug and relax. Adventurers of all kinds are welcome.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: I grew up and currently still live in Eastern Connecticut. I adore the Adirondacks and have been extremely fortunate to acquire this beautiful property from my very generous parents. They fell in love with the region decades ago and instilled that love and respect in me. I in turn have shared this wonderful property with my own son and many friends and family members. I hope through these vacation rentals to share it with many more and provide others the opportunity to fall in love as I did. Because I am still employed full time, I am unable to visit as often as I'd like. By offering it for rent, I hope others can enjoy it as I and my family have and continue to create the memories that last a lifetime.

Why the Owner Chose Malone, NY, USA:
The property was purchased by my folks in 1988 as a summer retreat. At the time, it had a little 2 room hunter's cabin on it. The cabin remained until 15 years ago when it was replaced with the main house that exists today. The cottage was built by my Dad while the little cabin was still in existence. The property has been a huge part of my family for the better part of my adulthood and for my son'e entire life. He spent most summers with his grandparents there - swimming, fishing, and working side by side with his Pop-Pop. It is my desire to keep the property in the family and one day pass it on to my son. Until that time, my occasional visits still serve to renew and refresh me. There's nothing like a solitary paddle from pond to flow, surrounded by nothing but peaceful solitude and the beauty of the Adirondack wild.
