This fabulous, one of a kind, year-round Cranberry Lake House features a very private, picturesque setting with stunning views of Matilda Bay, 107’ waterfront with easy access, sandy shoreline, great swimming, a raft, a large dock, a fishing boat, 2 kayaks, a canoe, and a paddleboard. The sun is always shining somewhere on the huge yard, from early morning to late afternoon, where there is plenty of room to spread out, play games, throw a Frisbee, converse in the garden, or simply read a book in the peace and quiet. There’s even a fire pit by the waterfront for campfires and roasting S’mores.
The custom-designed, three-level home is spectacular and boasts a two-story great room with vaulted ceilings, a floor to ceiling Quadrafire fieldstone fireplace which heats the main and second floors, a gourmet kitchen, 5 bedrooms, with the library and game room functioning as the 6th and 7th, 3.5 baths; altogether 3,600 sq. ft of spacious, gorgeous living areas.
Built in 2007, the architect placed the house in the perfect spot to capture sunlight all day long, even though surrounded by trees, and custom designed the windows to maximize the light and views from virtually any position within. Just step outside of the great room onto the 2,200 sq. ft. wrap-around deck to enjoy the amazing lake views and the splendor that surrounds you. This is the perfect spot for morning coffee, savoring scrumptious meals, or enjoying your favorite beverages at the end of the day while you share all the wonderful experiences at this mountain paradise. There’s also a charming, 9’x11’ screened room built into the deck that is ideal for catching up on your summer reading, renewing conversations, or perhaps playing cards or board games. It even offers a quiet spot to sit back in the fresh air and “rest your eyelids”.
The cooks in your group will love the kitchen with high-end appliances, like a Kitchen-Aid 6 burner gas stove and oven, side by side refrigerator/freezer, abundant cabinetry, granite countertops, and an island with sitting area and prep sink. Fire up the propane grill (no refills required) on the deck and soak in the beauty of the woods and waterfront while those incredible aromas tantalize the hungry campers. Food never tastes better than at the lake.
All the bedrooms are spacious, with 9’ ceilings, large screened windows, and easy access to the bathrooms. The master bedroom has a walkout balcony, huge closets, large master bath with walk-in shower, and a deep tub. There are two bedrooms on the ground floor; one with a doorway opening directly to the back lawn and waterfront. The ground floor also has a laundry room with washer and dryer, and an unfinished game room with a queen and bunk beds, and walk-out to the waterfront.
This vacation home is all about location and the Adirondack lifestyle. Although you may never want to leave this special place during your stay, there are plenty of things to do in the surrounding areas. Located in the heart of the wilderness area of the Adirondacks, there are countless hiking and waterfall trails, and you are less than an hour away from the High Peaks region which offers some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere in America. The Lake Placid Olympic region is just an hour away and is a fascinating place to visit the venues like the “Miracle on Ice” Arena, the 70 and 90-meter ski jumps, where you can actually take an elevator to the top and see what it looks like staring down those incredible chutes. The shopping and touring in Lake Placid Village is also fun. The Wild Center, a natural history museum of the Adirondacks, is a great outing for the whole family and is just 25 minutes away.
This is the perfect place for your family and friends to gather! Come stay at our special retreat and create memories that will last a lifetime!
