About Martha Simon
We currently live and work in the New York City area. We have always dreamt of owning a lake house. When we were on vacation to Loon lake for the first time in 2018 we absolutely fell in love with the Lake and the people in the area. We knew right away that this was our place and it was time to make our dream a reality.
Martha Simon purchased this House in 2018

Columbus Day Weekend
My family and I all had such a great time! The house is so cozy and decorated very rustic. There is a pretty path down to the lake across the street with a little dock, chairs and kayaks. Perfect weekend get away!
We had a wonderful time at this cozy cottage on Loon Lake for our family reunion. Great accommodations. Loved the hot tub and the fire pit.
Week @ Loon Lake
We had a wonderful week at Loon Lake. The house was cozy and plenty big enough for our group of 7. The house had all the amenities we needed and not having to drag along 7 sets of sheets was a nice bonus. We enjoyed the hot tub a few times, even though it was summer it was a great way to relax. I enjoyed sitting on one of the 2 decks mornings and evenings. The waterfront was nice, quiet and relaxing every afternoon with a quick jump in the lake to cool off. Our adult kids made use of the kayaks and inflatable raft a couple of times and again it was nice not to have to bring them from home.
Martha is extremely easy to contact and gets back to you right away. All in all a great week was had by all and we would not hesitate to return to this house for another week in the sunshine.
Not what we expected
- Clean interior
- 2 kayaks and equipment available to use
- Separate bedroom above garage, which is nice for privacy
- A hot tub and two wood burners (we didnt use any) but would be nice for ski vaca
- Communication with owner was fine.
- Although advertised as a lake house, it is not actually on the lake. You can barely SEE the lake from the house. To get to their lake access, you have to cross rt 9 and walk through some woods to get to it. This should have been made clear in the property description, but wasn't.
- Since the property sits on rt 9, there is a fair amount of traffic, including the occasional logging truck.
- Loon lake has a LOT of boat traffic, with skiers, tubing and jet skis. Its pretty much unfishable most of the day, unless you want to fish in 2-3 foot waves.
In short, if you want a place for a ski vacation or have a power boat and don't mind the lake traffic or lake views, this place would be fine. If you are looking for a more secluded, lakefront, peaceful adirondack experience, this place isnt it.
Enjoy the outdoor life
This property was roomy and spacious with many opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Loved the deck and covered front porch and especially the dock area on the lake. A great family property. Such easy access to the interstate which made many area attractions convenient. Would definitely return.
