Description from owner

Truly a house for all seasons. Loon Lake is a crystal clear lake renowned for its watersports and fishing. Go for a swim or race across the water on your skis or tube. With 2 sandy beaches, a dock, exclusively for the use of our guests, bring your boat, your water skis or just sit and watch the sun set over beautiful Mt. Kipp. In autumn the lake is still quite warm, fish are biting and the long, golden days are glorious and peaceful. Winter brings with it a new wave of outdoor sports- skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, snowshoeing and tubing! We are skiers and have kept this gem for our family for years during the winter months.. Just a 15 minute drive to beautiful, family-friendly Gore Mountain. Or if skiing is not for you, go tubing at the Ski Bowl in North Creek. Right outside your door you can ice skate, cross country ski, snow shoe or snowmobile. And for that romantic get away, book a horse drawn sleighride one evening at the Circle B ranch.So come play in the snow and curl up in front a warm fire when you are done. With plenty of room for everyone to unwind after a fabulous day on the slopes.

This modern cedar home is nestled on three private acres full of tall pines, providing filtered lake views. The path to one of two sandy beaches is directly across from the house. Just 400 feet from front deck to your private dock where you can get on your boat or just enjoy the sunsets. The second beach is just a short stroll away at the end of this quiet dead-end road.

Nestled on 3 private acres full of tall pines, the front deck offers filtered lake views. The footpath to one of two private, sandy beaches is directly across from the house. On that beach you'll find your private dock and some Adirondack chairs to enjoy the view and spectacular sunsets. The second beach is located a few houses down at the end of this quiet dead-end road.

Beautifully furnished and immaculately maintained, this home features an open floor plan, cathedral ceilings, cozy fireplace and two decks (front and rear) to enjoy the views. With one bedroom/bath on the first floor and two bedrooms and a bath on the second, it's ideal for two couples or a family.

The living and dining rooms have cathedral ceilings with a balcony hallway for the upstairs bedrooms. On the first floor there is:a rear deck with gas bbq, sitting room with skylights, gourmet kitchen with granite counters and breakfast bar, dining room, living room with fireplace and queen-size pull out sofa, bedroom with two twin beds and a bath. There is also a large front deck with a patio set and lounge chairs.

Upstairs the master bedroom has a queen-size bed, the other bedroom has two twin beds and they share a full bath. On the lower level there is a one car garage and laundry room with washer and dryer.

About the area

Gore Mountain is just 15 minutes from this house. About 9 miles and only one traffic light! Ski Magazine described it as the undiscovered jewel in the Northeast. It is a lovely, uncrowded mountain. If you don't want to ski, go to the ski bowl in North Creek and have a blast tubing on the snow. And in the evening, book a horse-drawn sleigh ride at Circle B Ranch. Of course, snowmobiling, cross country and snow shoeing are available right outside your door. Loon Lake and the two private beaches we access offer excellent fishing, boating,water sports and spetacular sunsets. Loon Lake Marina is about 1/4 mile away providing rentals and supplies for these activities. Hiking,cycling and climbing areas abound. Just minutes away there are great restaurants, charming local shops,an historic railroad,the Hudson and Schroon Rivers for rafting/kayaking/canoeing;spelunking,horseback riding,golf and mini-golf are all available. Gore Mountain offers gondola rides and mountain biking. Lake George (parasailing, steamboat rides,etc.), Great Escapes Amusement Park and Saratoga Racetrack and Perfoming Arts Center are a short drive away.

“Loon Lake Review”

Reviewed 31 Dec 2016

Very nice house and well kept up. The owners communicate very well and will answer any questions. It is perfect for a mountain getaway for snowboarding and unwinding. The only thing is that there is not much to do around the area that we were in other than gore mountain (in the wintertime). But overall our stay was great and had no issues, the house was very nice and the owners were great. I would definitely stay here again if we come back to this area.

Owner's reply: So glad you enjoyed your stay. Wintertime is all about outdoor activities, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice fishing, cross country skiing, skating and sleighriding. Adirondack Park is known for it's natural beauty, certainly not it's night life! Spring, Summer and Fall offer great outdoor activities also, hiking, cycling, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, water skiing, wakeboarding, just about anything you can think of. And Lake George is just a short drive away.

“Great place”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2016

Wonderful place to stay with friends/family. Lake is only couple feet away. Very quiet. Great fishing location, was lucky to catch small and large mouth basses. Thank you.

Owner's reply: My family loved this house at first site. Over the years we have made many great memories here. Now that my children are grown and don't come as often we are happy to share this Adirondack gem with other families. So glad you enjoyed your stay.

“Great location”

Very nice home with quick access to water for the kids. Close by hikes, towns and easy drive to Lake George or anywhere else.

Owner's reply: Delighted you enjoyed your stay. Loon Lake offers peace and quiet, yet all the action you might want is close by.

“Great Rental”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

This was a beautiful home with all of the amenities a person could ask for, and the lake view at the beach is one of the best there is. Lynn was very helpful, informative, and a pleasure to rent from.

Owner's reply: My pleasure. Happy families are our reward.

“Fabulous house and stay”

Reviewed 15 Dec 2012

This is a great house in a great location. The house was immaculate when we arrived, beautifully furnished and equipped. And the owners even thought about the little things that can make your stay enjoyable-like a blender and night lights! The lake is about 400 feet from the front deck and the private dock has spectacular views of Mt. Kipp and the sunsets. Can't wait to book our next stay here.

Owner's reply: Thanks so much. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Happy guests are our reward!

“Great property and the most enjoyable vacation”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2012

We enjoyed staying in this house. Very well maintained, clean, tastefully decorated in the Adirondack style, and spacious. Has everything one might need including even bath and kitchen towels. The owners are very thoughtful and a pleasure to deal with. The house is located on a most beautiful road, by the lake, and very close to grocery shopping in Chestertown. Pine trees are everywhere, and the air is so fragrant! There is so much to do in the Adirondacks, and most attractions are within a 30 to 45-min-drive! Highly recommended.

Owner's reply: Happy guests are what we strive for!

“Loon Lake Lodge”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2012

We had a lovely time and enjoyed our morning canoe rides. It was so peaceful and private and everything we needed was right in the beautifully decorated house. Our weather was perfect and we were able to enjoy time together with all of our children. We enjoyed hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, canoeing and rode the gondola up Gore Mountain. We took a drive up to Newcomb and hiked at the Adirondack Park VIC. We also enjoyed the Natural Stone Bridge & Caves in Pottersville. The kids enjoyed swimming out to the float and there was such a beautiful view of the mountains and lake from our private beach area. Thank you again for a truly memorable vacation.

“A nice place to rest”

Reviewed 26 Jul 2012

A very nice summer house, clean and quiet surrounded by a little forest and close to the lake. We spent a wonderfull week. It would have been nice to have a canoe available. .

Owner's reply: Everybody has their favorite water toy. Canoeing, water skiing, fishing from a rowboat are all pastimes our guests have enjoyed while staying at the house. We provide a lovely, private dock so you can bring your own boat or rent whatever you desire at the nearby marina. We have found this keeps everyone happy and makes sure your equipment is well maintained for your family's safety while boating on this beautiful lake.

“Great Labor Day Weekend!”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2011

We had a great time at Loon Lake! The marina down the road had great rates on boat rentals and the house had everything we could possibly need for a great weekend! Would definately rent again :)

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Thank you for renting the house to us for the week. We had a wonderful family vacation and got to see and experience some beautiful weather,sights and sounds.
We especially reveled in just relaxing at the house or on the dock with the spectacular sunsets.
My husband got to fish a couple of days, he really liked that and we both got to unwind and refresh. Thank you so much for supplying the beautiful and comfortable setting.

Just a note of thanks for the vacation rental this year. The place was great! The decorations were adorable! The girls really enjoyed going down to the lake and swimming between the docks. The lake was warm and beautiful, with limited activity! We took the paddle boat out a few times too!

We toured all over the Adirondack's and learned a lot this time.

Thanks again,

Lynn & Dan C.

Terrific! Loon Lake Gem
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We were extremely happy when we pulled up the driveway. The pictures online were exactly how the home was. The house was well maintained, updated, clean and well stocked. It is located on the same road as the marina which was great since we rented a boat and drove it right to the dock located on property. We would absolutely book this home again.
