“Awesome weekend”

Reviewed 5 Oct 2016

We rented this house for a long weekend. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. Our party included 3 adults and 3 teenagers. Although the the weather wasn't great to enjoy the lake or an outdoor fire, the house was perfect for us. We had plenty of room to spread out inside when it was raining. The kids enjoyed playing the many games that were there and we had a large selection of movies to watch. It was exciting seeing the deer in the front lawn. They actually walked right up to us. I would definelty rent this home again.

“As good as it gets”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2016

Was able to stay for a long weekend and was completely satisfied. Great home with a great location for much of what old forge has to offer. I had a total of about 6 people total and the home was able to sleep all of us comfortably. The private beach was great and since I had a boat the available docking was very convenient. A short walk to into town was a lot of fun as well as enchanted forest right across the street. I met the owner Mark and he makes sure we had everything we needed and was willing to do anything else necessary to accommodate us, overall great doing business with him. I would highly recommend renting this vacation home to anyone looking to have a great time in old forge with the wonderful waterfront, to the deer and wildlife all around, to the great times and food to be had in town only a short walk out the front door.

“Snowmobilers dream”

Reviewed 31 May 2015

I have had the great fortune of renting Camp Enchantment for the past seven winter seasons. The house is ideally located one block past The Enchanted Forest and the snowmobile gas tanks. The trail. head for trails 4 and 5 that lead to Hollywood Hills, First Lake and further to Inlet, Raquette Lake, Moose River Plains and beyond. Just down North Street at the back of the Enchanted Forest lot are trails 1, 2 and 3 that lead to Big Moose, Stillwater and the link to the Brantingham trail network and Tug Hill trails. If you're a snowmobiler,there is no better location this. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a pull out couch and a detached garage that holds six sleds. The basement has a separate entrance that we used coming in and going out leaving all of our gear in the two downstairs rooms. The beds in the master and 1st floor bedroom are firm and very comfortable. I spent more than one night asleep in the bunk room beds and slept soundly in them as well. The house is extremely clean and the owner very attentive upgrading and improving the property every year. It's a perfect snowmobile property and great value.

“GREAT STAY”

Reviewed 1 Mar 2013

The home was very convenient and comfortable during our stay. The snowmobile access was great. We loved the bunk house, very nicely decorated. The deer came right up to the front door to visit. We would rent this house again our stay was great

“great time, as always!”

Reviewed 12 Oct 2012

I have been coming to this lovely home since 2007 and have always been pleased with everything. The house is clean and neat and in a great location. Quiet, but close to Old Forge with all the activities, shops and great restaurants. My family and friends really love coming. Hope to be able to enjoy the house for years to come.

“Fall Weekend”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2012

Our Ladies Weekend 2012 was enjoyable and relaxing. The house is located in a beautiful area of Old Forge offering peaceful views of the lake. We especially enjoyed the giant fire pit and watching the deer feed right out the front door. Definitely would recommend this house for vacation....Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

“Excellent vacation, despite the weather”

Reviewed 14 Aug 2011

We had a wonderful time at Old Forge, despite the weather. We went on the chair lift, a sea plan ride, the water park, a nice train ride and a wonderful hike. We also enjoyed the house we stayed in- 2 deer came to our door on multiple days. I would have given this vacation 5 stars if we had better weather...

“Perfect place for a family”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2011

We had a wonderful time!! Our stay was perfect. I have a 3yr old and 2 yr old and they loved they deer that come right up to the camp. We walked to Enchanted Forest. Location was perfect!! Plenty of space and a beautiful weekend!!!

“Couldn't Ask for More”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2010

We just stayed here this weekend for 2 nights and could not believe how well-equiped this home is. How cozy and tastefully decorated too. We are older and have traveled extensively in and out of the country and agree that this is one of the best. We celebrated a 60th birthday with a 2 hour fall foilage tour on the Old Forge Lake cruise boat with our friends which is located right out the back door, had the best dinner at Frankie's Restaurant in town and took walks to numerous quaint giftshops in the area. Only thing lacking was more time!!! We will be back!

“Lovely home”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2009

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home...the website doesn't do it justice. My Grand daughters were so excited about the deer right up to the front porch but were disappointed the weather did not allow them to play on the beach. Hopefully on another visit!
