Property description

Welcome to Lake Effect Cottage! It is a Lake Effect all year round here. In the winter, we have great trails for the Lake Effect snow! In the summer, enjoy the tranquil Lake Effect by hanging out at the beach and swimming to the dive platform. It is situated in a little community behind the White Lake Inn across the road from pristine White Lake.

The cottage is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath with privacy in the pines. The cottage is surrounded by vacant lots which add to your privacy. You can relax and breathe in the fresh Adirondack air on the front deck in the summer, or in the enclosed porch in the winter. The porch flows into the living room and also connects with windows to the dining room for a choice of privacy or togetherness.

There is a queen bed in the master bedroom with plenty of room for a pack-n-play if necessary. There is a full bed in the 'library' room and two sets of bunk beds in the 'Adirondack Kid' room. There is also a pullout sofa bed in the living room.

The master bedroom has a bathroom with a tub and washer/dryer on their side of the house. On the other side of the house, the other bedrooms have a bathroom with a stand alone shower.

The kitchen has everything you need: plenty of utensils, pots, pans, dishes, etc.

But why not just roast hotdogs and relax at the fire pit in the back yard? Follow that up with s'mores and it is an Adirondack vacation!

There is plenty of room for your trailers and boats in the driveway and garage.

Enjoy spending your time in the snow during our winter season. The snowmobile trail is right there! There is cross country skiing in Boonville or downhill skiing in Old Forge at MacCauley mountain.

There are many summer activities to choose from, too! You can spend a day going white water rafting up the road, or perhaps take the canoe or paddle board on White Lake. White Lake is a 2 block walk from the cottage. There is boat ramp across the street or you can just enjoy the beautiful beaches with a swimming platforms. Don't forget your fishing pole! Bring your bikes for a spin around the neighborhood or just enjoy walking your dog in the cool summer evenings.

Looking for some local nightlife? White Lake Inn is a 2 block walk where you can enjoy live music, food and fun! Look for Pizza Joe on the weekends!

The cottage is about 15 miles south of Old Forge which means that not only will you get to your vacation destination faster from the south, but it is easy to get to Old Forge anytime to enjoy the fun activities and restaurants there.

Lake Effect Cottage does have wifi so that you can update your status in the Adirondacks regularly!

We look forward to hearing from you! We know you will love it here like we do!

White Lake is just south of Old Forge. This pristine lake is one of the cleanest lakes in New York State. It is located just inside the Adirondack park. You can spend your time enjoying the lake or traveling up the road to Old Forge to go white water rafting, kayaking or paddle boarding down Moose River. Don't forget to visit Water Safari and the Enchanted Forest! There is plenty of fun for the entire family at Calypso Cove where you can doing everything from go-carts to mini-golf to zip-lining! The Strand movie theater in the middle of Old Forge is a great rainy day experience: it is a theatre from the old days! And don't forget to visit the local shops up and down Rte. 28 from White Lake to Old Forge.

For dinner, you can walk 2 blocks to the White Lake Inn or enjoy dinner at Season's nearby or Garramone's in Forestport. Of course, if you are already in Old Forge, there are awesome restaurants for every taste!

On those days where you might be in the mood for a museum, we recommend the Adirondack Museum located at Blue Mountain Lake. It is a beautiful day trip!

Don't forget to grab a local Adirondack Express to look at the recreational activities that are planned in the area every weekend!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: We have been visiting this area for 20 years and have always had our eye on this neighborhood. As avid snowmobilers, it is right on the trail. As water enthusiasts, it was right at White Lake so that we could enjoy boating, tubing, paddle boarding and swimming in the summer. We were so happy to find a cabin here of our own. We are close to Old Forge for fun and dinner but we get to our cabin a half hour earlier than if we had purchased a place in Old Forge.

Why the Owner Chose Woodgate, NY, USA:
When we saw this cottage, we thought it would be perfect for a vacation for others. We can now share our love of the Adirondacks with you!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is a private lot with vacant lots on all sides. It has a cozy feeling like being at Grandma's house. We are sure you will feel at home and find some artifacts from your childhood!
