If you are looking for a true 'Adirondack Camp' experience, look no further!
First, about the Cabin. Sitting on the shore of Forest Lake (a private association lake with no motor boats allowed), the cabin was built in the 1940's as a rental for one of the many Dude Ranches that were active around the Lake George/Lake Luzerne area. A Charming cabin that has been completely restored to provide all the modern amenities that one would expect today. There are three bedrooms upstairs with a full bath, downstairs you will find a spacious living room with original stone fireplace (gas logs installed) a dining room that seats 6, a large kitchen boasting a gas range/oven, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave and a full selection of cookware, dinnerware and utensils. There is a full bath (with shower) downstairs that also hosts a full size washer/dryer for your convenience. No air conditioning.
Also, lakeside, is a quite place you can curl up with a good book. Walk out the backdoor onto a large covered porch overlooking the lake. Sit quietly and you will probably see the bald eagles that live on the lake, lots of ducks and geese, and occasionally the family of otters that make their home across the lake. Attached to the covered porch is an open deck to grab a few rays or fire up the grill. Step off the porch and it is steps to the lake. There is a dock for sunning and a nice sloped area for swimming. We have a canoe and a row boat at the property for your use! You can spend your entire visit relaxing at the cabin but if you want to explore the area, there is plenty to do. There are several river rafting outfitters just down the road as well as The Painted Pony Rodeo. Horseback outfitters, snowmobile outfitters and hiking trails are all nearby. The Longhorn Pub is just down the road for a hamburger or a drink, a locals place that is good and fun or try the Upriver Cafe in Lake Luzerne with a fantastic view of the Hudson. If you wish to explore a bit further and need some additional shopping or dining, just a few miles brings you to the Lake George area where putt-putt, amusement parks, restaurants, outlet malls and shops will keep you busy. For real nostalgia, take in a double feature at the Drive in Movie! Lake George offers more boating and fishing opportunities. During the winter try the Tubby Tubes (summers are fun too!) near the cabin or drive to Gore Mountain for a day of skiing.
We are minutes to the Northway (I87) and it will quickly take you south to Saratoga Springs and Albany, north to the upper Adirondack region with Lake Placid and the Lakes (even Montreal is just a couple of hours away), and East to Vermont.

About Fred Asmussen
We are Pam and Fred Asmussen, we live in Texas and purchased the home last year. Two of our children live in the Northeast and we purchased the house to be able to spend more time with them. We have fallen in love with upstate New York and the Adirondack region is our little slice of heaven. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Fred Asmussen purchased this Cabin in 2014
Why Fred Asmussen chose Lake Luzerne
When you close your eyes and try to imagine your idea of a lakefront camp in the Adirondack's this property is most likely what you will see. Our cabin was originally built in the 1940's as part of the Northwoods Dude Ranch, an 800 acre site with 2 lakes. A lot a history in the area.A true hand cut log home, nestled among the pines overlooking a beautiful lake. Original pine floors, exposed logs, and a handlaid stone fireplace gives the house its charm. With a well done addition to the house and lots of work, the house was remodeled to provide a modern kitchen and nice bathrooms. We have decorated the house to keep the charm of a log home but included many of our personal pieces, furniture and rugs to give the house a bit of elegance as well.
What makes this Cabin unique
What makes this house special? Standing on the porch watching the wildlife? Testing the water with your toes in early summer to see if you are brave enough for a plunge? Pushing the canoe into the lake to enjoy a different view of the beauty of the area, the quite and the solitude? Family and friends gathering in the kitchen, all talking, laughing and cooking? Backing up to the fireplace on a frosty morning with a cup of coffee? Curling up in a chair on the deck with a good book? You decide...

Beautiful property in the perfect serene setting!
This was the perfect getaway and exactly what my wife and I needed to recharge. Fred was extremely accommodating and the champagne welcome was the cherry on top! We will most certainly return, perhaps during the summer so that we may enjoy the sunset from the amazing porch that overlooks the lake. This property undoubtedly has different advantages offered during every season and we can't wait to experience them all!
So glad you had a good weekend. Every season at the cabin is special in a unique way. We would love to have you back again.
Fred was a pleasure to deal with in renting his home to us for the weekend. The House was spotless, in a perfect quiet location. Close to downtown lake George for restaurants and shops. Look forward to renting again in the near future.
We are so glad you enjoyed your snowy getaway. Look forward to hosting you again.
Amazing cabin Rental, the only thing you'll regret is having to leave!
This is our second stay at this lovely cabin. We walked in and felt like we were coming home. Everything you'll need for your stay is there and it's all high quality, from kitchen gadgets to your linens. 3 days just wasn't enough, do more if you can, you won't regret it! I can't say enough about Pam and Fred, they are the best owners we've ever dealt with and I use VRBO a lot. Enjoy!
Thanks Carol, so glad you were able to come back and stay with us again! Hope to see you again next year.
Great Long Weekend!!
We had a fantastic four days at the cabin. The house was clean, beautifully furnished and extremely comfortable. We even found a welcome treat in the fridge! The cabin has everything you need, a modern kitchen, relaxing living areas, and comfortable bedrooms. I highly recommend this cabin.
Thanks for visiting us again Donna! You are welcome anytime.
Beautiful cabin in the woods
We came for a weekend away and some time to relax. The cabin was gorgeous, and the online pictures do not do it justice. The home had so much character! Fred was extremely welcoming and provided excellent recommendations for activities/restaurants to try. Lake Luzerne is ideal with the benefits of a quiet location and privacy; however, a short drive from Lake George, Bolton Landing, and Glen’s Falls. We did not want to leave, and cannot wait to return!
Thanks for the kind words. Pam and I feel the same about the location, 10 minutes we are at Lake George and all the action, 10 minutes back and we are in quite solitude at our cabin on the lake!
Hope to have the opportunity to be your host you again.
Charming historic cabin
Our family of 4 just arrived home from a week at this charming cabin. We had a wonderful week filled with memories of fishing, biking, horseback riding and everything in between. We picked this property based on the charm in the pictures but in person it is somehow so much better. Pam and Fred did a spectacular job decorating, we couldn't wait to get back to the cabin every night to unwind. The cabin has everything you need inside and the beach front is a hop skip and a jump away. We had countless hours of fun on their dock and at the beach just down the road. We will definitely be back next year. Thanks so much Pam and Fred!
Thanks Jaclyn, so glad you and your family had a good time! We feel the same way, there are lots of great things to do in the area but we always look forward to getting back to the cabin. Hope you return again, we would be honored to have you.
Within 15 miles you will find the outlet malls, the village of Lake George, The Great Escape and Splashwater Theme park, multiple putt-putt golf courses, shopping and restaurants. West Mountain ski area is a short 15 minutes down the Northway and Gore Mountain skiing is 45 minutes away. Tubby tube is minutes away that is fun for children and adults alike. Several water rafting outfitters, horseback riding, and snowmobile touring are less than 10 minutes away. Minutes away from The Painted Pony Rodeo. Tons of fun but nothing like a quite and peaceful day at the lake!
