About Roberta McColl
Our Indian Lake camping/fishing/hiking family purchased Indian Ridge Chalet, an all-year-round vacation house because we wanted to be able to go up for "white water" rafting in the spring, cross-country (Garnet Hill), downhill (Gore Mountain), snow-mobiling and spectacular fall foliage This area has something to do every season, pristine lakes everywhere, a Town skating rink up the hill, boating and biking plus the world acclaimed Adirondack Museum (regional museum) in a part of our town called Blue Mountain Lake (part of Indian Lake) .
Roberta McColl purchased this Chalet in 1987
Why Roberta McColl chose Indian Lake
It is user friendly, especially for extended families as it can accommodate 10 adults plus a few kids!? It is well equipped and furnished without being slick and fussy. Had a Connecticut sculptor do an "Adirondack Wildlife Totem Pole" from a troubled spruce tree stump about 14 feet tall at entry-way. A wild meadow garden is part of the entry path. The property is on one of the Designated Views in the Park, It is private, yet easy access to Town. The picnic area has a small "farm" pond for the wildlife with an authentic Adirondack lean-to, picnic table, and fire-pit with wood provided.
What makes this Chalet unique
The mountain views from the Chalet are quite exceptional. (The Bullhead Mountain Range and Siamese Pond Wilderness area) Central location in the ADIRONDACK PARK. ( The largest public park in the USA). We are about 40 minutes from Lake George (lots to do and see there) and about 1.5 hour drive to the Lake Placid area . Local lakes are Indian Lake (canoe and boat rentals and super camping areas), Lewey Lake, Adirondack Lake, and Lake Abanakee.

Amazing property! Perfect combination of old and new and best sleep I’ve had in a long, long time; entire family had a blast. Woke up to deer mulling around on the property and fresh snow fall. Played board games with the family at night, in front of the wood stove. Pizza place up the street is fantastic and can go up against the best.
Thank you so much, Roberta! Only there for two nights this trip but hope to return soon for a longer stay - Alex
Thanks Alex for the thoughtful review of Indian Ridge Chalet. Our family does try hard to make it as comfortable and fun as possible. Good news about the pizza place down the road1 Sorry you missed the bear, he checks us out periodically, probably still asleep....Come back soon, we love people who "get" the great Adirondack Park. Sincerely, Roberta McColl
I have stayed here 2 times already. I am completely in love with this property. Just enough rustic and privacy. Very close to Indian Lake and White water rafting. Roberta is the best and always responds in a timely fashion. I would recommend this property to every one of my friends and family members.
I love this place
Thanks Ruis for the sincere and thoughtful review of Indian
Our group had a lovely time at this chalet.
A Great Location and close to family for the Thanksgiving Holiday
The location was perfect. It was great to be able to have a place of our own to escape to after a large family gathering. There was only one issue that our host dealt with perfectly. We would love to stay again in the near future. Thank you for letting us rent your beautiful Chalet.
Thank you Loralie for your glowing review of the Chalet!!! Much appreciated, I moved it to the top of the list! PS The pump was replaced by the next Monday miracuously and the hunting party was also very understanding....am I lucky this year. Merry Christmas to you all. Roberta McColl
Charming. Spacious while feeling cozy too. Fully equipped.
Easy to say this chalet has become our getaway destination, having stayed there in August and October. Setting sights for summer 2018. Continue to be amazed at how well stocked the chalet and its accompanying lean-to is. Roberta has accounted for every opportunity that could present itself, from indoor comforts to camping/hiking gear and more. Waking each day to a gorgeous sunrise view of the mountains was breathtaking and serene.
Kathy McClare: Sincere thanks for the glowing review, hope you will come again soon! Roberta McColl, Indian Ridge Chalet
Cute, well located gem of a cottage.
The cottage is a perfect small place that can handle both small families or large crowds. It is very well stocked and has the necessary amenities that make for a comfortable stay.
Thanks for the nice review!!! The Chalet is 1700 square feet but you are right, it feels "small". We call it "cozy?" Please come again sometime. Roberta McColl
