This cozy cabin offers a lakeside experience nine miles by boat from Long Lake village. It is located in one of the most pristine and beautiful wild areas of the Adirondacks at the north end of Long Lake. A stay here provides an Adirondack experience that normally would require a long hike and a sleeping bag rather than a scenic boat ride and most of the comforts of home.
A 30 minute boat ride from Long Lake village delivers you to the cabin’s dock on the eastern shore of Long Lake. The cabin is located about 50′ from the shore on seven private acres of birch, hemlock, maple and white pine trees. A second, smaller cabin that sleeps two is located just behind the main cabin. The property is surrounded by miles of road-less forest with the Northville Placid Trail running just behind.
Inside the cabin you’ll find tidy but rustic furnishings in a large main room along with a wood stove. There are three bedrooms- two feature double beds and one has two bunk beds. The main cabin sleeps eight and two more can sleep in the smaller cabin. Water is pumped from the lake to provide running water for the bathroom (two sinks and a toilet), a small but serviceable kitchen and an outdoor shower. Appliances including a refrigerator, stove, hot water heater and lights are powered by propane. There is no electricity.
The front of the cabin features an outside deck and a screened porch as well as an outdoor stone fireplace. Both of these, as well as the kitchen and the main sitting room, offer breathtaking western views of Long Lake. Guests at the cabin spend time sitting on the porch watching the lake, reading, playing board games or experiencing the lake and woods.The Northville Placid Trail, just a short distance behind the house, leads to Cold River (four miles) and then to the base of the trail-less Seward Mountains.The 14 mile long lake offers extensive motoring and paddling and features healthy populations of smallmouth bass, pike, perch and sunfish. Wildlife that has been spotted by guests includes bald eagles, loons, beaver, deer, the occasional bear and the very occasional moose.
Boat access to the cabin will be provided (for an additional fee) or guests may bring their own boat. We’ll meet you in Long Lake village and drive you down the lake, then pick you up one week later. While at the camp, you’ll have access to a 15′ motorboat with a 15 HP engine as well as a canoe and two kayaks. This 15′ launch can whisk you around the lake and even take you back to town on occasion if you desire.
