Overview

About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps maximuim of 4 adults and two children.

Charming cottage in Adirondack style. Large porch and outside seating for 6.

The Mystery

Do you remember Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys? What better way for your family to spend a unique and memorable Adirondack vacation than your children tucked to bed in a magic room of their own behind a hidden staircase. Where else would you want to spend a summer vacation when you were 10 years old??

The Setting

Amazing Adirondack Bungalow with great front porch, sitting atop a knoll just off route nine. Named after the Lake George State Island, Loon is located 1/2 mile south of exit 21, is in a quiet neighborhood on a dead end street and conveniently located midway between Lake George Village strip and the Great Escape Park and Outlets.

Find a respite from the busy village and enjoy sitting on the large porch watching the sun rise over the distant mountains. The spacious living room is decorated in Adirondack décor with serving bar. Large kitchen with wainscotting and table that seats 4. Outside table seats 6. Gas stove, frig, Kuerig coffee maker, and microwave. All the amenities of home.

Three bedrooms. One very large and bright with a Queen size bed and two twins, a The second bedroom is small with a double bed. Upstairs magic room has two twin beds for children age 4 to 16. Along with the cottage there is a private firepit and umbrelled outdoor seating area for six and for everyone to enjoy a cool adirondack evening. check below for more details

Has highchair and porta crib available.

The bookshelf rolls open to reveal a stairway leading to a large room (The magic room) which sleeps 2-3 (I would guess ages 6-14). It is the perfect place to have a memorable Adirondack vacation. Attached are picture of the secret room!!

A unique feature

Also included with the cottage is an AC (some rooms), WIFI, Cable and propane grill.

Hiking/biking Enthusiasts

One of the best amenities is that this cottage is located across the street from the Lake George Bike/hike trail. Head north for a fifteen minute ride to take a dip in Million Dollar Beach (all down hill to the lake, so a bid of a harder pedal home!) or head south to the historic "Feeder Canal". Start the day with a hike along the same path.

Magic Forest Iis right across the street and perfect for younger kids, and Ralph Machio's (Karate Kid) rodeo and new zip line. Walk to the old time saloon for deliscious barbeque. Ten minutes from the Great escape

Two miles south LG village and 2 miles north of the outlets. A perfect blending of two worlds five minutes in either direction!!

A Disney movie Radium Girls was filmed on premises last summer.

To be released this summer

You can arrive any time after one. I will connect with you at some point. Feel free to unload and unpack and make yourself at home. Please leave by 10 am.

The name is on the cottage. This is what it looks like from the back….You can pull right up to the back door.

A few highlights

- Bike Trail – across from the cottages is the bike trail which heads north takes you to

Million Dollar Beach – wonderful walk or bike(remember it is uphill coming back!!).

like going back in time. Has the diving horse.

Nice place to stay. Lots of room, inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. No issues. A lot of room. Helen was very accommodating and even brought us towels when she saw we didn’t bring any. Great communication before, during and after stay. We left a shoe when we left and she sent it to me. Place is close to lake george and outlets .

Quiet corner off the main street

  • 5 of 5

Quaint little cabin that served our needs perfectly. We were in town for a motorcycle rally; the cabin was a short distance to the venue and centrally located to lots of restaurants and services. The owner was very communicative and accommodating. Thank you for a great stay.
