Exceptional Mountain Views from the Chalet.
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.

Stay to ski at Gore Mt.
This property is quaint and did exactly what two families needed for a weekend getaway to ski! We needed to bring linens and towels, but the house was clean, cozy and room for kids to play.
Property 120011: I have a problem: My caretaker said Rachel Holt party left our house in pretty un-acceptable condition, so she requested we not rent to them again. I gave them a poor review yesterday and received an irate call from her last night. It looks like a she-said/she said situation. You say I cannot edit my review after the fact of submitting it. However, I would like to improve her review. She is angry and won't return anyway! Please help Me!! Roberta McColl, owner, Jan. 23, 2020
Cozy cabin with amazing view
We enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return again in the future to see the beautiful views in another season — in the summer.
Thanks Barbara! For the nice review, hope you return to Indian Ridge Chalet. Try to book fairly early for next summer if you can...our family reserves time in July so only limited time then but August is wide open (we had 7 bookings last year that month. Happy New Year and 12th Night. Sincerely, Roberta McColl
