There are three cabins close to each other so the neighbors are an important aspect of your stay. During the week we were there, a family in the second cabin monopolized the opportunity for using some of the boats which was against the rules. They also had two dogs which was against the rules. The one-bedroom cabin has a very small bedroom with access to the bed only on one side. The gas stove oven was not working so little cooking could be done and unfortunately rain prohibited much cooking outside. There is no laundry facility. The couple who own the property are on the property part of the week and tried to offer boating privileges to the other guests due to the 'one unfair guest' but they didn't seem to have much control over the whole situation.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry your experience was not favorable. As the property owner, I take all criticism to heart. I do want to clarify a couple items. Although this is a no pet property, we have guests who have been have been guests upward of 10 years, prior to our ownership. We felt, in some cases, it necessary to allow their pets as was previously allowed. The same guests comes each year for a fishing vacation. They utilized the row boat each day. There were kayaks and canoes which went unused. When notified of the problem with the gas stove not lighting, a service technician arrived the following morning. Unfortunately a part was ordered as it was not in stock. I was assured this was not going to be an issue. The bed is free flowing and can be moved further away from the wall. I don't feel a rating of 2 is a fair assessment . Again, I am sorry your experience was not favorable. John & Kelly Dobek

Lovely spot to relax and recharge

  • 4 of 5

The Hideaway Cabin is in a beautiful spot, with Lake Colby ever changing with the wind, time of day, and weather. The cabin is attractively furnished with an Adirondack theme and very clean. Hosts Kelly and John are very warm and accommodating and the location is convenient to all Saranac Lake offers. The only downside is that the bedroom and bathroom are very small. We truly enjoyed our stay.

We escaped the hot and humid South to this perfect little cabin right on the lake with kayaks and canoes waiting for our use. There are great hiking trails close by and the little town is fun to explore. Check out the Robert Louis Stephenson cabin and the Laboratory Museum. Downhill Grill is good and reasonable. Kelly and John were so welcoming. Thanks for the trout John!

Perfect location, charming cabin, lovely hosts, highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Hideaway cabin was just ideal. Everything you could possibly need for a comfortable, downright luxurious, visit to the Adirondacks has been anticipated and supplied. The site on Lake Colby is just beautiful. The furnishings are top notch. The hosts could not be more wonderful and welcoming. The location is perfect to explore Saranac Lake, Lake Placid, Tupper Lake and the entire High Peaks region. Can't recommend highly enough. We hope to return and bring additional friends and family sometime soon. The three cabins together would be the perfect arrangement for extended families to vacation together. Thanks for everything, Kelly & John!
