Nice little cottage on the lake.

  • 4 of 5

I rented this cottage as a retirement present for myself. Friends and family stayed different nights and we all enjoyed it. It was the perfect size for us and a great location. The inflatable float was no longer available but we didn't miss it.

Great Getaway for Our Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My family used Billabong to sleep while enjoying the Adirondacks with our extended family at a nearby camp. It was delightful, from the cozy beach to the flexibility of sleeping accommodations.

the perfect getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect place to stay in order to enjoy the beautiful Adirondack Mt region. The owner made booking the property very easy, and was very helpful, once we got there, in providing us the information we wanted regarding good hikes in the area, places to eat, etc. The cottage is neat, clean, and comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised that I had a great view of the lake, even while sitting in the living room. When the weather was warm, we enjoyed the comfortable seating on the deck. The people we met in the general store, on the hiking trails and in the nearby restaurants were very friendly, making the trip all the more enjoyable. This cottage provided all the comforts of home in a peaceful wilderness environment. I highly recommend it.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

The Billabong Cottage was a lovely place to stay! We took family walks every evening, had a blast on the private beach, loved the cute General Store, and settled right in for our week of vacation. Even the flat grassy yard area turned out to be such fun for our son! Thanks for a very easy rental transaction and for stopping in to check on us. Great Place!

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I just want to say that every piece of informaton stated about the rental property was accurate. The place was clean and well maintained. The owner came the first day to make sure everything was all right and also half way into the vacaton. He was very friendly and helpful. We had company over a couple of times and they could not get over our excellent find! The place was perfect. We are thinking about doing it again next year. I would recommend it to anyone who was interested. We ahd dinner at The Drake and also Flannagin's Pub and Grill. Both were just a short drive from the cabin and both were excellent. The people at the Adirondack Store were very friendly and the store had everything even breakfast and lunch! We also went to the Adirondack Museum and Ausable Chasm. Both were worth the trip. But the best part was the private beach! We set up our chairs and left them there the whole time. Nothing was bothered. Our son anchored his boat there. We used the canoe and the floats that were provided. What can I say-we just had a great time.

Schroon Lake Billabong Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Very good value for the price. Cabin and Lake Front have a lot of privacy. Cabin was nice and well kept. Plenty of room with a huge deck and a concrete floor garage. Cabin also comes with a variety of recreational activites such as canoes, rafts, ping pong table and more. A lot of fun and I would recommend to anyone.
