Great house and wonderful beach!

With 4 kids (ages 15mos to 5) and four adults, this was the perfect vacation home. There was plenty of space for everyone and the beach was perfect for the whole family. We had an amazing vacation.

Fabulous mini-family reunion!

  • 4 of 5

3 couples, two single adults, and 2 babies all fit perfectly in this house and had a wonderful mini family reunion over Labor Day weekend. The house had all the amenities and the beach was wonderful and close by. Additionally, the location was centrally located between family in Massachusetts and upstate New York, and close to Lake George and hiking in the Adirondacks. Loon Lake is wonderful and Chestertown had everything we needed.

A Very Merry Christmas

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully decorated for the holidays. There was lots of room and everything was clean and well maintained. Though the skiing was not what we hoped due to lots of rain, we were able to enjoy walking the neighborhood. It was very picturesque. I highly recommend this property.

Awesome house, really fun weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our second great Memorial Day weekend here. My husband and I were looking to take our 2 and 4 year olds for a fun but peaceful few days in the Adirondacks and this is the perfect place for it. The house is extremely clean and spacious, with lots of windows and a great outdoor space. We walked back and forth to the lake all day to swim, fish, canoe, and just relax. We also did a few short local hikes, even right from the house. Some great places in town to eat and grab ice cream. At night, we sat in the Adirondack chairs outside the house and made S’mores. Hoping to return this winter for snowmobiling and to take the kids skiing for the first time. Definitely recommend staying here.
