Vacationing in this house puts you within walking, biking, snowshoeing, running, snowmobiling, hiking and driving distance to countless places and adventures. This area is a safe and fun place to relax, adventure, learn, laugh and create new family memories.

What makes this house unique

Wi-Fi. Wheelchair accessible with suitable notice. . All downstairs areas are designed for wheelchair accessibility, as the house was modified by the woman who sketched-designed-built & installed a working prototype (at Pratt Institute NYC-1950) of the the world's first interior kitchen to be fully used by people in wheelchairs. The kitchen in our house is not set-up for wheelchair gourmet, but width of doors, hand rails, and lots of spaces to enjoy are everywhere.

The first working prototype was in her Ryerson Street Apt in NYC.

Great Adirondack getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house is huge. Alot of rooms and space. House has everything stocked and random things you would need. Lovely house but needs some updating and yard work. But overall a good house and in a good area lots of things to do

Practical, cozy and close to town and water

  • 5 of 5

This Adirondack flat offers few frills, but is practical, clean, cozy and large. It is also walking distance to town and just a moment's drive to the water. The beds and linens are very comfortable, and we had no problem cooking dinner for five. It also had a great enclosed area in the yard just off the deck for our dogs, which we very much appreciated. I'd certainly go back.

Nice place to stay

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice place for us and another family to share for a long weekend. Clean, lots of beds to choose from, lots of towels and conveniently located in a quiet town that wasn't far from various attractions. I can't speak for the other adults in our group, but my bed was comfy and I slept great! Owner and housekeeper are very friendly. One criticism is the lack of a fire pit and mostly unmowed back yard.

Wonderful weekend in the mountains!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was spectacular with this home in Indian Lake! Easy access to the lake, hiking trails, and small shops in town. The house was very spacious, and had everything you would need from kitchen to cleaning supplies. I highly recommend hiking up Crane mountain and spending some time at the summit. Then at night, you can simply walk or drive to the lake and stare up at the breathtaking stars/Milky Way!

The Town Beach on the lake is beautiful

The Adirondack region of New York is a large Wilderness area that includes small towns and lots to do. Fantastic hiking trails, snowmobile trails, downhill skiing and snowboarding, fly-fishing, mountain biking, family beaches on beautiful lakes, and amazing White Water Rafting all happen within moments from our Indian Lake, Birch Tree Cottage.

Montreal is close by as is the famous Lake Placid Ski Area, and the renowned Adirondack Museum. We are only 17 miles to the Gore Mountain Downhill Ski area.

Wildlife from trout to deer, bears, bobcat, owls, fox, rabbits, and many more are a beautiful part of this wilderness region.

Winter events and activities are everywhere! Summer and Fall are BEAUTIFUL. This is a large preserved wilderness area- with many many fun things to do.
