The Bungalow on Silver Lake

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

The Bungalow sits on 10+ acres of land and is on a private, largely

undeveloped Adirondack Lake called Silver Lake, which is directly

across State Route 3 from Cranberry Lake, in the southern part of St.

Lawrence County. The land includes 350+ feet of frontage on the lake.

The lake is approximately 1 mile long and about 3/8 of a mile wide.

The cabin is about a 1-2 minute hike through the woods to the lake -

it is not right on the water. Many families with small children will

find this separation from the water attractive for obvious reasons. The cabin includes a rowboat, a canoe and a kayak, and there is a large dock and a sundeck on the water.

The cabin itself includes 3 bedrooms, and each bedroom includes its

own private bathroom, with a sink, shower and stool. There is also a

small room near the master bedroom with a futon in it. The kitchen includes an electric

stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, coffee grinder, toaster,

and a variety of small appliances. The kitchen is fully equipped with

pots and pans, utensils, etc. There is a phone in the cabin for

emergency purposes. AT&T cell phone service is available, making it easy to set up a personal hot spot for internet access. The cabin is insulated and winterized, and

can be used year-round.

The area around the cabin is quite forested and full of wildlife,

including deer, wild turkeys, raccoons, woodchucks, squirrels and

chipmunks etc. Occasionally a black bear appears - we've seen two in

the 20 years we have owned the place.

There are many birds in the vicinity, including hawks and eagles,

partridge and grouse. Summer brings thousands of hummingbirds to the

Cranberry Lake area. The lake is full of fish, including brook trout,

large and small mouth bass, rock bass, yellow perch and brown

bullhead. Silver Lake is private, and not open to the public, and

consequently it is seldom fished in - there are lots of fish in it.

The lake also contains many turtles, river otters, beaver, frogs etc.

There is a hiking trail around the lake.

The village of Cranberry Lake is a five minute walk away, and includes

several restaurants, a convenience store, an ice cream stand, a gas

station, gift shops, a very nice public beach, boat rentals etc. We

are about 1.5 hours away from the spectacular Adirondack Museum in

Blue Mountain Lake, and about an hour away from the tourist areas of

Lake Placid and Saranac Lake. The new Wild Center Natural History

Museum of the Adirondacks is in Tupper Lake, about 23 miles away.

With screened or open porches on all four sides of the building and an

isolated dock and private waterfront only a minute or two away, the

Bungalow is a great place to go to just relax and unwind! It is

generally quiet and moderately isolated, but close enough to

civilization to be convenient to necessities. It is a great place to

take little kids, and the majority of our guests are either families

with small children or older folks who just want to vegetate for a

little while! We are pet-friendly and encourage you to bring your

non-human family members.

In winter the Bungalow is only a minute or two from hundreds of miles

of snowmobile trails, cross-country skiing or hunting.
